Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Last night some friends and I went to see the True Colors tour at Chastain Park Amphitheatre. My friend Laura invited us a couple of months ago and we were all super excited! Audrey, Gina, and Laura and I all headed down to the park around 6:30 or so. The traffic was pretty bad around the park, but we eventually made it. We packed a cooler with a variety of drinks and Gina embroidered us some really cute koozies to hold our beverages. You can see them in the pics. We then met up with my cousin Candice who works for the catering company Proof of the Pudding. She gave us some awesome food to eat. There were two opening acts which I can't remember their names. I do remember that Audrey was excited to learn that they were from Toronto. Then Rosie O'Donnell came on and she was hilarious. After her, the B-52s performed and they were awesome! They haven't changed a bit and their music was still very entertaining. They did some new stuff and of course their old, like Rock Lobster and Love Shack. After they performed and while Cyndi Lauper was getting ready, Carson Kressley came out to entertain and fill the time. He was hilarious too! Cyndi Lauper came out and stole the show. I can't believe how good she still looks and sounds after all these years. Her performances of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Time After Time were my favorites, although when all the artists came out to sing True Colors that was definitely good too! It was a late night and I was really tired this morning, not to mention we were out of coffee, but it was well worth it!

Here we are with our cute koozies again and delicious food

Lobster Dip, a Brushetta tray, chicken on a stick, shrimp, beef tenderloin, chicken caesar salad, cheesecake and poundcake were our menu for the evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Candice!
These are my cousins Candice and Bill. They are brother and sister. Thanks for making us look extra pale with your tan Bill.

This isn't a great pic., but this is the B-52s performing. They were great!

Here is Cyndi again singing out in the audience. That is the great thing about this venue is that the artists come out into the audience to sing.

Here is Cyndi Lauper performing

This was all the bands that performed. The opening acts, Cyndi Lauper, and the B-52s, Rosie O'Donnell and Carson Kressley
