Breathe Right!

You can't tell very well, but Lisa's wearing a clear breathing strip. Her hubby got them for her because she has been struggling with breathing through her nose lately (cute!) and she sported one to our rehearsal this week. I didn't notice it at first, but then that was all I could see... Later during the practice, it would pop off and looked like the craziest protrusion from her nose!

Rehearsal Fun!

We're getting ready for a gig coming up at the end of August. We'll be just north of Cedar City playing at the Iron County fair. :) Learning new songs is stressful, but we're making it fun! This is our last rehearsal together for a while because Diane, Lisa and I are taking off for a few weeks. Considering we're killing ourselves on this new set, we can still keep it fun!

Here, Diane's laying down some fab banjo chords for our. . . not-so-fab . . . first try at some REALLY hard vocals! Run DMC - in da house! (I know, I'm as white as they come... tee hee!)

Someone has to be the bad guy - this time, it was Les' turn! (Oh, BTW, he's our new guitar player... not featured in any pictures.)

Danielle always makes fun of my because my fiddle's so small and my fingers are 'dainty' (I think she means sissy, but whatever) ... here's her impression of me. This picture was taken at the end of practice... when we were all goofy as all get out!

Busy Weekend!

We're new, but we're already getting started! This weekend, we have sooo much planned. Thursday, we'll practice, like always, to polish our shows. Then, Friday we are scheduled to perform for the High Priest Social for the Orem North Stake. They are having us put together 20-30 minutes of high energy entertainment. I'm excited for that one because we're throwing in The Chicken Dance! Fun! Diane's excited for it because we get to try out our new microphones... they're wireless... yeah, we're that cool! :) Saturday's our busiest day. Danielle's got the Bug Show (VW Bugs on display... including two of hers) until 2pm... hopefully she'll take pictures. After that, we all go to the 4th (I think) annual Neighborhood Soiree (or swaray... for those of us who aren't French) put on by a group called Sentimental Journey. They are fabulous all-men group that sings a lot of acapella. They're very good with The Beach Boys songs. We'll put on 20-30 minutes of a show and sing something with those guys. That's sure to be a fun show, too.

Every photo shoot needs a pictures out of left field. This is one of many from our shoot. Danielle's mom was our photographer and our pictures were taken in Danielle's friends backyard next to the cherry tree (couldn't tell, could ya?), but one limb kept getting in the way. Danielle's mom broke it off, and it reminded me of a piece of mistle-toe... just the way it broke... but you can't tell from the picture... it just looks ... weird... But check out Lisa! She should be the focal point! :) :) :)

How interested are you?

Recently, someone told me that, while talking to me, they didn't feel that I was genuinely interested. She said, "Lauren, you have a horrible 'interested' face. I just want to walk away!" So, I changed it.

Lost and Found

This is how cool we (and by we, I really mean Lisa) are! Brick phones are back in style. You heard it from Bittersweet first! But, in order to be truely cool, you have to lose the back!
And then, when you find it, you have to attach it with rubber bands ... preferably the clear kind, but for an added bonus, duct tape!

Check out how cute Lisa and hubby are!! :) :) :)
