contest winner and weekend yay!

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

I know a lot of you have been waiting to find out who the Alyson Noel contest winner is, and congrats go out to Tatyana, who wins her choice of four Alyson Noel books!

In other news, I've been pretty stressed lately and kinda sad but then, on Friday night, my husband (who is AWESOME) surprised me with tickets to see Britney Spears, who long-time readers will know I LOVE. (No, seriously. I really do think she's fabulous. You can tell me she doesn't sing live and whatever and I know you are right. But I still heart her.)

Anyway! So he takes me down to North Carolina on Saturday, and it turns out we have seats RIGHT BY THE STAGE for the show. And I do mean right by the stage:

So yeah, amazing seats, and more proof that my husband (who does not like Britney Spears) is the best husband ever. (EVER!)

And so we go and I'm all ready for 90 minutes of scripted awesomeness--and it begins and I get to see stuff like this:

But....the show ended up being nothing like any Britney show I've ever seen. For starters, she was on for two hours, in part I think, because she clearly had problems with her contacts as one point and spent about the last third of the show in her glasses (totally adorable in them, btw)

(sorry the picture isn't better--my husband took them all with his phone, but there's a great ones of Brit in her glasses here)

But the biggest surprise? The one that made Entertainment Weekly?

Britney sang. (Yes, really!) She did a cover of Alanis Morissette’s You Oughta Know, and WHOA. Everyone was dead silent at first because Britney doesn't just break from her set and do covers. Or sing. But she did! There's footage all over, but this is my fave clip because the sound quality is pretty good)

So yeah, good weekend. And my husband totally WINS AT EVERYTHING.
