. . . responsible financial choices . . .

. . . let's say you really love
american idol

and

so you think you can dance . . .

. . . but, these are
crazy financial times
we live in,
so you need to
choose only one or the other
of the live tour shows
to buy tickets for/attend . . .

. . . for me,
the winner
~ hands down ~
is:

. . . the good news is . . .
. . . nigel wasn't there . . .
. . . and neither was mary . . .
. . . but the bad news is . . .
. . . cat wasn't there . . .
. . . nor was mia . . .
. . . the top thirteen dancers were there . . .
{twelve if you count comfort/jessica as one}
. . . highlights of the three hour show included:

  1. "mercy" - the "door" dance - twitch/katee
  2. "nutcracker suite" - the "russian" dance - twitch/joshua
  3. "5 guys named moe" - "broadway" - mark/will/gev/twitch/joshua
  4. "imagine" - {xoxo david archuleta} - "pas de deux" - will/katee
  5. "no air" - the "army" dance - katee/joshua
  6. "bleeding love" - the "briefcase" dance - chelsie/mark
. . . there was plenty of humor
including a running gag featuring:
gev's unrequited love for courtney


. . . the dancing was literally non-stop
. . .


. . . favorite performer - twitch - what a showman
. . .


  • we did our part for the environment by loading eight full-grown adults into a yukon for the nearly 100-mile round trip
  • we did not stimulate the economy concession-wise by refusing to pay $7.50 for a "souvenir" diet coke
  • we wish to be known for our responsible financial choices
{no pictures were taken. we also chose to just enjoy the show.}

This event exceeded my expectations! I loved every moment of it, except for the dumb Snuggle bear part. THANKS again, Ma!

how stinkin' fun. i love twitch.

LOVED the mercy/door dance on the show, as well.

i'm still sad joshua won though. the end.

Seriously why couldn't twitch have won? I was so surprised when Joshua won and I blamed it on Julia. Every vote counts and she didn't vote that night. (not that I voted either but she was the representative from our family). Anyways...we are jealous.

I'm so living vicariously through this post. . . I would have picked SYTYCD too. I love that show!

The only way I contribute to our economy is with the purchase of diapers!!!LOL

Becca said...

I loved the show too! And that snuggle bear part was so creepy (agree with Amber). I must admit I spent $7 on an icee. But that's just because my throat hurt from screaming the ENTIRE time. Check out my blog and see who i got to meet...

It was nice seeing you guys at the show, fun surprise. I loved the show and you can borrow any of my pictures. I'm glad my friend Kim was there, she's the photographer. I'm definately going back next year!!

Stephanie,
Ya, it was way fun running into you guys the other night! (even though you all had to yell at me to stop walking, ha shows how observant I am! )

But, I'm glad you all had fun and yes, you may have been boring after the show, but at least you got sleep! ha we were definitely deprived the day after (even though it was totally worth it!)

Hope life is treating your family well and I'm glad to hear that drew is doing so well week after week. I still can't believe he's been out for 6 months! Time is definitely going to fly by and before you know it he'll be back home!
