Me, Mindy, Viv, Brandy & Jody... My darling sisters and mom!
Oh wow! What a day a night and half a day! I would love to be blogging that I won 10,000 while in Vegas, but no... but I did have a FABULOUS time with my mom and sisters and friends! Friday we shopped and lunched and laughed and then Friday night we went to the Bette Midler concert! oh...my...gosh! She used language a little stronger than gosh and heck and freak...but it was soooooo good. The name of the show was "The Showgirl Must Go On" I think people forget that she started out as the Divine Miss M in Bathhouses in New York in the 1970's as a bawdy comedienne. She was hilarious! I loved hearing her sing "From a distance" and the "Rose" and yes I did get a little choked up when she sang "Wind Beneath My Wings"...she's a classic! She talked about cleaning up New York City and her motto was: "It was time to get the trash off the street and back on the stage where it belonged." She cracked me up! There were mermaids in wheelchairs and she did a big Vegas production number to "Pretty Legs and Great Big Knockers"- dressed as a showgirl...head-dress and all! We had GREAT seats and had such a good time! Then we ate at the Cheesecake Factory right there in Caesar's...so much fun. Viv had to gamble a bit...we people watched and then went back to the hotel where the fun really began! We stayed up laughing until almost 3 am. The rowdy crowd was Me, my sisters- Jody & Brandy, My Sis-in-law- Mindy, the amazing mother- Viv, Viv's BFF- Leslie, and my BFF- Kamari. A good time was sooooo had by all! Thanks Brandy for having a b-day, thanks to Viv for the ticket hook-up, and thanks to my man for holding down the fort so I could party... I had a Divine time!
Cheesecake Factory at 10 p.m....so we HAD to stay up till 3!
