My New Video, Green Day, 4 Miles

Thanks, friends! I love the new dresses! Just to make sure I didn't mispeak - the dresses were not Gap - they're Rachel Roy from Macy's! LOVE them and the best part? NO alterations required. :) So....here is my new video! So glad I got the motivation to do this Sunday - woo! Hope you enjoy. :)

Aside from LOVING on this video all day yesterday (I get really excited when I finish these little guys!), I worked, walked 4 miles during lunch, worked, got fitted for a bridesmaids dress (again), and then headed home for the Green Day concert with Austin! Yes, Monday night concerts normally make me cringe, but this is part of the reason why I purposefully took it easy this weekend and, truth be told, the venue is about a mile from our casa! AKA No excuses! GREAT SHOW! They played every. single. song. I. love. New stuff. Old stuff. They even covered everything from Shout! to the eye of the tiger. It was crazy. They pulled people on stage, shot t-shirts, hosed down the crowd, crucified a toddler then told him to "get his ass of the stage" - CRAZY. They just had so many backgrounds and pyrotechnics - it was like freaking cirque (without the acrobatics!). We discussed and seriously think it may have been the best show we've ever seen - they just REALLY entertained and tried to do something for everyone (well except for the f-bombs - i was like wow, there's tons of kids here and you f-bomb every other sentence.... and he talked a lot which was fun for us but probably not good for parents!) We REALLY enjoyed date night!! Here's some pics:

yay - love confetti!
hehe love the Green Day over his head!
Loved all of the lights

Thanks for the photog random stranger!
Vodka + crystal light - YUM
Another fun background.... here is with the toddler. LOL
First shot!

I ended the night at 1,754 calories, 165 carbs, 36 fat grams and 108 protein grams. Here's what I ate and drank! To back up on stats: Saturday was at 1,887 calories, 183 carbs, 50 fat grams and 88 protein grams. Here's what I ate and drank. Sunday was at 1,490 calories, 216 carbs, 24 fat grams and 89 protein grams. Here's what I ate.

Q: Are you a Green Day fan? I've been loving them since I was 12. Gotta love 7th grade, braces and Green day! LOL

Q: What was your favorite band in middle school? Have you seen them live? Would you see them now if you could? I've gotten to see some of my favorites live - 311, Green Day, Collective Soul, Snoop, Dave Matthews, etc. But I'd still love to see some other randoms like Candlebox, Silverchair, Nirvana (couldn't happen), Alanis, Bare Naked Ladies, Foo Fighters.... the list goes ON AND ON!

I love Green Day! First concert I ever went to when I was younger. Such a great show! Glad you had a great time.

I do enjoy some Green Day as well! I like that their songs are getting more and more political (not that I'm a super political person by any means) because some of the things they come up with require an "Oh snap son!".

I was a total boy band freak in middle school. Justin Timberlake with super bleach blonde hair, what?! SO hot!


Loved the video! Sweet dance moves, sister!

So jealous - I LOVED Green Day growing up and never got to see them in concert!

E said...

Is it sad that I am drooling over that vodka + crystal light? And I'm sitting at work right now! I think I know what my drink of choice will be this weekend :)

Tina said...

Oh my goodness! Green Day brings me back to middle and high school. Loved them back then. I didn't know that they were still touring. Sounds like fun!

Erica said...

Oh my gosh - so fun! I love it. Green day totally rocks. Their latest album is actually really good to work out to. You look adorable at the concert too! I loved Oasis in middle school.

Dawn Dishes It Out said...

Lindsay Cotter said...

green day reminds me of when I was a a freshman in high school. Such good memories. What a fun concert!

Gabriela said...

Aww that video is adorable!! I was a big Green Day fan in middle school too, but I also loved Dashboard Confessional. Still do!

Jessica said...

I have a question for you!! When you drink your Crystal Light mixed drinks in public places, are you just ordering a vodka and water, then adding the CL? I've added it to water in restaurants before and my family always acts embarrassed! Do the restaurants/bars seem to care?
Thanks!

I saw Green Day when I was 14. I thought it was very cool.

When I was in middle school, I was still into bands like Poison and Motley Crue. Don't laugh! It was the early 90s and those hair bands were still cool.

Anne Marie said...

Love the video! I like some of Green Day's stuff :)

Mica said...

I like Green Day a lot, though I didn't like them so much in middle school.

Oh man,that list of bands was a trip down memory lane. Ahhhh.

How fun!! Sounds like an incredible show!!

And I have been loving vodka and CL all summer... can't believe you found a place that was selling it!! Jealous!

imreadytobareitall said...

Looks awesome. I'll have to see if they are coming to my area! I've loved GD since junior high....

Tami said...

Looks like a lot of fun. What a great video!

Anna said...

Love the picture of you sipping your vodka and CL -- you look devious!

I definitely enjoyed Green Day a lot more in HS. I was a pop music girl in MS. I used to know every word to all the 98 degrees, backstreet boys, nsync, etc songs!

Work has blocked most fun things on the internet -- so I can't wait to get home and watch your video!
