I’ve had a crazy past 12 hours.
Last night, daughter Emma and I headed down to Denver for the Taylor Swift concert:
I had to sell my body for these tickets. They sold out in about a half a second back in April. They were Emma's tenth birthday present, and tonight they finally paid off.
Taylor puts on a good show, I will say that. As a mom, I dig TS because she is a decent role model for Emma. She speaks/writes from the heart. She is close to her own mom. She doesn’t promote herself with sexuality or promiscuity. She seems grounded despite her oodles of fame.
But, by far the best part of the night was knowing that Emma was making lifelong memories at every moment and I got to be a part of that. She gets so mad when she notices that I am crying during these moments because, “C’mon mom it’s just a concert,” but to me it represents a snippet of my life with my little girl. A time that is fleeting. This was one of the highlights of her life so far outside of coming out of my body (which she remembers every moment of) and zip lining in Costa Rica.
We got home at about midnight. I slept for four hours then got up and headed back to Denver to do a spot on 9news about the Skirt Chaser 5K this weekend. Founder, Nicole DeBoom was interviewed about Skirt Sports and the race, and the rest of us got to model (and take home) clothes. My tank has a “cleavage alley” pocket in it where you can hide lip gloss, keys, tampons, condoms. I probably need more of a “flatlands alley” in my tank, but that’s okay.
Here’s me in the “green room” trying on my stuff. It’s not very green and there was no fruit or muffins or Oprah. If I look tired and menstrual, that because I AM! I didn’t even shower before my tv debut:
Susie Wargin (sportscaster), me (dang I look short), Dimity McDowell (RLAM-fame), the EVOL Burrito People and Nicole.
I am not sure what is so funny, but must have to do with my cleavage. How do I bend my leg back that far?
My outfit is part of the new fall line. Gym Girl Ultra in Red Kiss ($65) and Wonder Girl Tank in the Red Kiss Play Print ($55). The color in real life is much more of a pretty wine red, not so bright like here.
PS: If you ordered SUAR stuff (shirts, hats), printing will start tomorrow, and hopefully your things will be shipped by this weekend or early next week.Email me if you have questions.
