Folks who visited the Nashville Farmer’s Market on Saturday afternoon had a special surprise waiting for them: An all-out flash mob. In case you slept through the early 2000s, a flash mob is “large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse.” The force behind this one was the Circle Players theater group who decided to get creative with spreading the word about their current performances of Fame, the Musical. On Saturday, several dozen dancers popped up in a flash, erupted into a lively song a dance routine, and then went about their business, leaving their accidental audience dazed, confused, and entertained. So congrats, Circle Players–you definitely got our attention.

I think next time I am in public with friends...we should bust out a dance!
Who is with me?
Earlier this summer I blogged about some books I have been reading. I am currently in a book club and it really keeps me busy reading reading reading! I have never been a big reader, so I love having something hold me accountable. My friend Paige, is the same way. She just recently moved to New Orleans and decided to start a book club with her fiance, Joe. This is their theme song!
If only we could all be this excited about books! oh and btw, I was totally a California Raisin for Halloween and in my dance recital back in the day!
We went to see Carrie Underwood and were delighted when we saw Little Jimmy Dickens, the Southwest Airlines rapping flight attendant, and met Clay Walker. Here is a recap of our night.
Just one gate away we looked up and saw this magnificent sight! The troops were home. There were probably 250 of them. We just stopped, clapped, cheered, and teared up as they arrived. It was truly and amazing thing to see and makes me so proud to be an American! I hope you like these picture as much as I enjoyed taking them!
Today, Jordan sent me a YouTube video that she said was "awesome". It had a wedding dance title, so I thought it was the first dance-switch mid song-kind of thing. I was thinking, I have seen a million of these--and even helped choreograph my own sisters. But let me tell you--I was way wrong. Check it Out Below!
This dance is hilarious and made me sooooo JEALOUS that I didn't do it. I tried to do something similar for my exit, but my church would only let us play church music. Anyway, Props to Kevin and Jill (and wedding party) for their amazing dance.
here are a few shots from breakfast
She is so generous to offer me some waffle!
August 16, 1924-July 15, 2009
(It was a reunion for my brentwood and college friends!)
Here are some pictures that capture the fun we had this weekend.
Anyway, Whitney and I hosted a going away party for our best friend.
and by Tori Spelling
My Review: I really enjoyed both books. I found sTori Telling really interesting b/c she talks about her life growing up...something that is so surreal to me. Mommywood is cute...but i think more moms would like it better than me. Still a great "beach" read!
next: by Lauren Conrad from the Hills
My Review: Cute book. Took me about 50 or so pages to get into it. At first, I was not lovin it. Its a fictional story that seems loosely based on her life. Cute book...ready for #2!
Currently Reading:. This book is by the author of "Sex in the City", so I feel you can't go wrong there!
As for my most "serious" read of the summer:
by Tatiana DeRosnay.
My Review: good book with a lot of Paris history during the Holocaust. Very interesting how she does flashbacks from 1942 and 2002. Great read!
Next on my List: "Are you there Vodka, It's me Chelesa" by Chelsea Handler
"Something Blue" by Emily Griffith
"love the one your with" forgot the author
What are you guys reading this summer? I would love more suggestions!
