Hi there! I'm Paula and I live in Orlando. I like to run and watch too much TV. I'm a lover of cupcakes and hater of chia seeds, even though I've never tried them. I eat peanut butter out of the jar and think Aaron Paul is my boyfriend.

Saturday night, hubs and I ransacked our closet for the only neon colors we own. It was LMFAO time! I was pretty sure I’d never see them in concert again after last time, but hubs scored some tickets from work so we thought we’d give it another shot. And I’m really glad we did because it was basically awesome. Even more awesome than the Jason Vorhees calf tattoo I saw on the guy standing in line in front of me.
Our seats were in the same area when we saw Britney – fancy pants VIP seats in the nosebleed section but with free food, beer, and wine. This time our friends Lisa (my bff) and Shelia (our martial arts fitness class instructor and general bad ass in the gym) joined us.
After a crap ton of opening bands (including Far East Movement), eating some delicious food and even more delicious cupcakes, cookies, and brownies (yep, I had all 3), we got ready to party rock.
Who knew LMFAO had this many fans?
The show was all kinds of ridiculous and had me laughing through most of it.
There were blow up zebras and palms trees crowd-surfing the general admission area.
There were pink bears drinking alcohol.
And there were human hot dogs.
If I ever follow my dream of being a backup dancer, I want to backup dance for these guys. I am taking that human hot dog job.
I gotta admit, all the fun on stage made me wish I was down in the general admission area. Bad. I even found my new favorite song from them. (<—–That’s a YouTube link to the song and probably NSFW. Unless there’s a lot of girls in bikinis at your work.)
We all had a lot of fun. Even after this happened.
Those crazy kids can’t keep their clothes on.
After the concert, we walked to a nearby bar downtown for a drink because we knew there were too many people around to catch a cab easily. We all had an awesome half banana/half coconut shot in really cool shot glasses that we wanted to steal. (And no, that Bud Light isn’t mine. Sheesh. So quick to judge.)
Hubs ordered another random shot with whipped cream. Then Shelia took liberties in putting the whipped cream all over my face.
You know it’s time to go when I don’t mind whipped cream all over my face in public. Once it was all over my chin and forehead, hubs realized I wasn’t going to wipe it off. So he wiped off my face like I was a 2 year old that just face-planted in a plate of spaghetti. Aww, I feel the love. <3
And with that, we caught a cab home and lived to party rock another day.
The weekend is almost over which totally bums me out. I feel like I could be a professional weekender. I’m really good at them. I don’t normally enjoy Sundays though because I spend a good portion of them mourning the end of the weekend and the start of a new work week. My glass is half empty, thankyouverymuch.
So, instead of being a pouty pants, I’m going to talk about the fun stuff this weekend. Then go back to being a pouty pants.
It started on Friday morning when hubs and I went to Crossfit. Only, our trainer forgot he had an appointment with us. So, we did the only thing we could to cope with the sadness. We got frostys.
I love when I can blame an unscheduled rest day on someone else. And yes I looked up that date. My jokes may be terrible but they are accurate.
Friday night, we went to see a late showing of Brave.
For a 10:45pm show, there were a LOT of young kids in the movie. Like, whiny, past their bedtime kids. Since when do 5-8 year old kids get to stay up that late?
We didn’t see it in 3D since we are total 3D haters, but this girl says the 3D is awesome. Anyway, we both still really liked it. It’s not one of my favorite Pixar movies (Toy Story, Wall-E, Nemo) but it’s really worth seeing. I could listen to Scottish accents all day. Americans really got shafted in the accent department, if you ask me. It’s like people with English, Scottish, South African, and Australian accents can say the stupidest shit and I would agree with whatever they said because it sounds cool. What am I talking about? Oh right. The Pixar short before the movie was cute too but hubs and I both thought it was our least favorite of the shorts so far. But still, go see it. It’s worth seeing in the theatre instead of waiting for video.
I didn’t get to bed until after 1:00am but still managed a 4:45am wake up for a run with my group.
My right hamstring is still bothering me (from a speed run I didn’t warm up enough for) and I was going to quit at mile 4 but then it seemed to become more manageable as I warmed up. So I upped my intended six miles to eight.
After the run, I not only came home and cleaned for 2 hours like the domesticated woman I am, but with the help of some caffeine, I went to Crossfit.
Before the workout, my trainer rolled my bad hamstring and calves (using The Stick) and holy shit that hurt. I was crawling away from him while hubs watched and laughed. I don’t know how you guys can stick yourselves. (Ha!?) Hurts so good, my ass. I am way too much of a baby. But I’m still going to buy one because I don’t think I foam roll correctly. And with The Stick, at least I don’t have to look like a moron rolling all over the floor to use it.
After Crossfit, I got another shellac manicure because I am now addicted to them.
My last one lasted 2 weeks until I thought it looked dumb because my nails were growing out. But it never chipped (and I often do dishes by hand). Did you know that salons charge to remove old shellac polish? $5.00! I had already peeled off three of the nails by the time I went in. Shouldn’t I get a discount for that?
Then Saturday night, I did the thing that I said I wouldn’t do again: I saw LMFAO in concert. And it was way better than last time. But I’ll save that for another post because this is long and I am tired. But here’s a couple pictures to delight you until then.
Are you sufficiently delighted?
Last night, LMFAO (and Jason Derulo, Karmin, and Outasight) played at the House of Blues as part of the XL 106.7 XL’ent Xmas concert series. LMFAO was the headliner, so tickets sold out pretty fast. Hubs regretted not buying tickets before the sell-out because he’s been liking LMFAO more and more recently. A couple days ago, tickets opened up again on Ticketmaster so hubs was all over it. We were LMFAO bound!
We arrived at HOB over an hour and a half after they opened the doors and still didn’t miss any of the opening bands (which was our reason for arriving late). So, we hung out at the bar for awhile and people watched while Outasight (not too bad) and Karmin (terrible) performed.
There was a really good view from the bar, particularly when the tallest man ever stood in front of me.
I saw one guy accidentally spill a drink all over his girlfriend and then ask her why she did that to herself. She was not amused. That was fun. We also noticed someone with a clever drink holder.
Jason Derulo finally came on stage. I don’t know anything about him except that song that reminds me of Beetlejuice, but I thought he was pretty good. He definitely has a good stage presence. And abs.
At the end of his set, he did back flips across the stage and a hand-stand where he was popping up and down on his hands. The dude has some serious acrobatics in him.
Finally, we were ready for our headliner. LMFAO is two guys. But only one of them was there.
I wasn’t familiar with their first song. The second song was I’m in Miami Bitch, the third was Shots, and the fourth was Party Rockin’. By the fourth song, I was getting worried they were slamming out all their hits so fast. I mean, I’ve been to a LOT of concerts and no artist does that.
The fifth song was I’m Sexy and I Know it.
And that was the end of the concert.
Five songs, 30 minutes, for the bargain price of $60 per ticket.
We stood there dumbfounded after the concert because we couldn’t believe it was over. And we were PISSED. I’ve never seen a headliner play shorter than an hour and 15 minutes, even with other bands. If the tickets were $20, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. For $60, we feel so ripped off. So of course I started tweeting nasties after the show. To LMFAO’s credit,
they have he has a lot of energy on stage, sounds good, and can work a crowd. For 5 songs.
The XL 106.7 XL’ent Xmas concert series has shows every year at HOB and I will never go to another one after this. Giving LMFAO another chance is up in the air.
