This week/weekend has just flown by. My friend Alison lent me her copy of My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult so I could read it before we see the movie version when it comes out at the end of the month. Today I went to Beastmomma‘s bridal shower which was lovely and just the beginning of the wedding festivities that pick up on Thursday and run through Sunday evening. This evening Hubby and I saw No Doubt live in concert at Nissan Pavilion in Northern Virginia. Gwen and the Boys were FANTASTICALLY AMAZING!!!! It was so wicked cool to see Ms. Stefani in person and hear all the bands great songs. There were over 24,000 people in attendance and when No Doubt performed Just A Girl, the estrogen in the pavilion was intense.
I tried to link the video of the band performing Just a Girlon The Ellen Show last month but it didn’t work. Sorry! I did find this footage on YouTube of No Doubt’s first late night network television performance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien from January 1996. It’s the song Just A Girl again but it really is cool to see their energy back then and compare it to now, thirteen years later and kids.
