I'm Still Here! & The Concert

Believe it or not, I really am still here...life has been kind of crazy, but I hope to start posting again on a regular basis soon...
On April 15 we went to the River Center for the Celtic Woman concert...but let me back up a bit. We (which includes Gabbi, my sisters, and myself) have been longing for "Jane Austen" dresses...and someone (I don't know who) came up with the brilliant idea of making them for the concert...
Next thing I know, we're buying patterns and fabric and chattering excitedly about ribbons and lace and hairstyles...
Unfortunately, the project kind of got put off--excuse me, postponed until the Tuesday before the concert...which meant we had five day to make four dresses. Need I say that we were rather late getting to bed all week?
Anyway, here are some pictures from the event
Our grand entrance to the River Center

(we were five minutes late and in a hurry)

Waiting outside impatiently as the music starts...



Gabbi's hair...isn't it pretty?
My hair...

At Jason's Deli afterwards..

Mom managed to get a snippet of Lisa Lambe singing "Dulaman," one of my favorite songs...

OH MY! I had a simply wonderful time. Didn't you? You did a great job om my hair and I had fun doing yours! Loved all the time we had together and the fun memories we'll always have :) We just have to convince the parents to make this a habit of coming EVERY YEAR when they do ;)
