Here is Izzy's winning video for tickets to the Greyson Chance Concert! I think it is pretty convincing, don't you? The video is actually better when you can see it in "real action"...for some reason, the video is skipping. Probably because it was done on an IPOD. :)
Now, the hard part...the concert that she won tickets to?
It's in OKLAHOMA.
Yep, you read that right.
Oklahoma. We live in Indiana.
AND, the worst part of this is that it is on her second day of school and my FIRST day of school.
What is a Mama to do???
Oh my goodness...

She rocked our world from the very beginning...in the very best way.
One of her favorite presents...it had all of the requirements:
Happy Birthday to Sophie...I love, love, love you!!

This is the Love Riot I remember:
Pretty awesome, right?
Well, the band broke up right after their biggest fan (that's me!) left Baltimore.
They started having children of their own and they have since formed the band for kids called Milkshake! They are on PBS, Discovery Kids, and have gained all kinds of popularity!
So, Izzy and Sophie went with me to see them at Eagle Creek Park in Indy.
Two band members remained the same: Lisa Matthews, the lead singer (below).
And Mikel Gehl (below) the lead guitarist!
They have super cute, upbeat happy songs for kids, like this one!
Bottle of Sunshine!
Here is what they did when we were watching...the kids that were there LOVED it!!!

(If you are unsure what guerilla goodness is, Click on the link to my friend, Patience's website (the inventor of GG) which explains guerrilla goodness perfectly.)
We grabbed a pad of post-it notes, our favorite Sharpies, and headed out. We gabbed and giggled the whole way about how fun this was going to be because we didn't want to get caught, but we DID want to get pictures!! So, we started by ambushing some of the cars in the parking lot...
This post-it note says: Every little thing...is gonna be alright (I think!)
Then, we headed inside...we thought "sweet peas" were a perfect place to put our next note!

(I think the rest of Indiana had the same idea!!)
So much for originality.
It did not take away from our perfect day at the beach!
Evan (the one who's buried) ALWAYS asks to be buried.
He's insistent until the other kiddos oblige.
They always bury him...and he can never understand why he has so much sand in his pants!
Izzy giving Sophie a piggy-back ride in the water! LOVE the smiles!

Can those two words together EVER be a good thing?
Here are the results of the blindfolded makeovers of Sophie and her friend Hana!
Creative, I'll give them that...the giggles that were coming from upstairs were the best!
Here is Sophie...
Here they are together. I love Sophie's smile and Hana's eyes!!
Remember when you had the time, energy, and spontaneity to do something like blindfolded makeovers? Hoping you find the time, energy and spontaneity to do something outrageous in your life today!
