Things I'm rather thrilled about right now

Well guys, Coachella's line-up was just announced and needless to say I'm pretty friggen excited. I think one of my favorite things about LA is that we always have something fantastic going on with music and sports!  So friends, if you'd like to join in on the fun, I have a place for you to shack right here in beautiful, sunny California!

Coachella
Indio, CA -- the hipster's dream land -- fills up with mobs of American Apparel, fedora-sporting, Jesus sandal-wearing humans who are all geared up to watch some of their favorites take the stage.  They don't allow drugs or "drug paraphenalia" but I guarantee everyone there is high or thinking about it.  Last year's big name was Jay-Z (and his boo Beyonce); this year doesn't disappoint either -- Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and Kanye West all headline!  I love The Strokes, Robyn, Brandon Flowers and Mumford and Sons, so needless to say I need to get to this festival STAT.  Tickets are $269 plus additional service charges, with layaway options available. 

Also, last year they had the option to volunteer -- you paid the amount of the ticket and then it was refunded after you worked an eight-hour shift.  So you "work" eight hours (aka listen to music all day) and then get a free three-day pass?  Sign me up! 



Just say the words "Carrie Underwood" and you'll have me in a tizzy.  I'm pretty stoked about Stagecoach this year, Indio's country version of Coachella.  Headliners include Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and (my girl) Carrie.  Looks like I'll be putting in a phone call to a certain uncle who I am fully aware knows Kenny Chesney... (make it happen!!!!)



"I'm Not Having a Wedding!"  Shower, sometime in February
I'm in party-planner mode yet again and I want to have a soiree to celebrate good friends.  I think a lot of us women feel down when we don't get flowers or have a date on Valentine's, because it reminds us we don't have anyone.  (Myself excluded, because my parents always send me a bouquet of flowers and Dad has been known to send me chocolate covered strawberries.  This has caused a dramatic raise in my standards.)While I was going to make this a women-only event, I figure why not invite some of my single guy friends?  I could play matchmaker!  I'm the new Patti Stanger.  And no worries, you're invited even if you do have a significant other.

Grammy Awards, February 13th
Well, one of my goals this year was to attend an award show, and it just might happen!  I'm working the red carpet that day, so hopefully things will fall in my favor.  This year's performers are Arcade Fire, Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert and Katy Perry.  I think I had a mild heart attack typing all those names.  I mean, everyone knows my favorite karaoke song is Forgot About Dre, favorite song to hear at the club is F--- You, I donated my dignity and pride to dress up as Lady Gaga for Halloween two years ago, I'm a country girl at heart and would marry Katy Perry if she'd let me.  Needless to say... I need God to make this magic happen. 

NBA All-Star weekend, February 18th-21st
I love All-Star weekends of any kind because they really are a blast.  There's always something to attend, see and experience.  This year they are bringing the best in the game to Los Angeles.  I love making an excuse to go to Staples, so this should be a fun weekend.

Lots of fun coming up in the next few months!
