The Calm Before The Storm

Just joining me?  Here’s a re-cap of my latest fabulous adventure!!  The last few days have been a rollercoaster and I have so much to tell you!! Where to start?  Well back at the beginning of course!!  Last Friday we battled a snow storm that shut down Southwestern Ontario, and left us stranded an extra day in Toronto.  We re-booked flights in a panic, changed car arrangements, cancelled a much coveted and needed spa day, but eventually we made it to LA. 

My SassyHubby and I arrived in California at about midnight on Saturday, grabbed our bags off the luggage carrousel and dragged our weary butts to our hotel.  I quickly unpacked my dress for the GRAMMYs and SassyHubby assessed the damage to his suit.  Suits stuck in a suitcase for two extra days get a wee bit wrinkly.  We finally crashed about 2am.  This of course is when I made the fatal error of doing math; counting the hours until I had to get up and be presentable for the world again.  When I realized the answer was five, I may have cried a little. 

The alarm clock rang and I was up, jumping!  It was GRAMMY day!  After a quick shower and a look in the mirror I sent up a little prayer; please send me some magical hair and make-up artists today, this exhausted Mama needed help.  Melanie and Melissa arrived with a burst of enthusiasm and energy that was contagious, they wasted no time and got right to work. 


Perhaps my luck of the past few days had finally changed because these girls were fabulous!  They were fun, professional and helped me create a look that would last the entire night!  Melissa even took a moment to give the SassyHubbys hair a little love! 

The ladies packed their magic bags, gave me a hug and ran out the door to save their next client.  I quickly slid into my dress and heels and was ready, as ready as I was ever going to be, to take the Red Carpet by storm!


Think I make through 12 hours in those shoes?  You will have to wait and see!  Many more Grammy Posts to come!
