Girls Just Wanna ... Let the Dogs Out

Madonna, Margie, Me, Cyndi, Marie

I'm quite certain as each of us girls were getting ready for a mid-week get together, Cyndi Lauper's song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was humming through our heads.

This morning, I woke up still smirking at the six middle-age women hitting Big Fish to see Big Will and the 360 Band, only now the song "Who Let the Dogs Out?" is running through my mind.

Over the years we've all enjoyed our local live bands. There is nothing like live music to dance to. Unfortunately, many clubs have submitted to having DJ's. I guess when we find a great dance band, our zealous excitement kicks in. (Ahem, to say the least!)

Big Will and the 360 Band
is just what this metro-Detroit area needs. Not only are they an extremely entertaining band, individually and collectively they have a plethora of background experiences that have brought them to this point.

So who DID let the dogs out? I'm thinking being a Wednesday, a smaller crowd, one or seventy-eleven glasses of wine, an awesome band, and fun women getting together ... well, there 'ya have it.

What happened at Big Fish, stays at Big Fish! *Kinda, join us next girls night out and I'm sure you'll have fun too.

Big Will & Sandi

"Luuvvv yaaaaa Wiiiill"

BIG WILL ... and my rambling descriptions.

Tonight is Girls Night Out

My sisters Sandi and Margie are meeting with our cousin Cyndi and girlfriends Marie and Madonna. Not THAT Madonna ... our friend had the name first ... well not really first, we all know who had it first, but our Madonna had it before the Madonna we all love to not love but secretly love.

A couple weeks ago we all met for a night out and saw a band we'd never heard before. Big Will and the 360 Degrees Band. Except, Big Will isn't BIG. He's big in talent, but he's not big in his size. The sound is big and the talent all the musicians have is BIG and the fun was BIG, but again Will is not BIG. Will was big. You can go here to read his story and get a shot of inspiration.

In keeping with my big rambling theme, I really want to say tonight is more than a girls night out or enjoying good music and dancing. It's about BIGGER things.

The bigger things are really "the smaller things." Being together to share a laugh, a hug, a funny "ya had to be there" moment. Taking time to stop in our daily routine to enjoy the moments that can't be replaced or made up at a later date. Making the time just to be together to create new memories and laugh over some old ones.

So tonight's BIG Will and the 360 Degree Band will be the entertainment for our night of fun and celebration of the moments we share in our "girls night out."

Guys Eyes and Dolls Balls

I was listening to the morning show DJ's debating over the silliness of "Car Lashes".

Carlashes, yes, eye lashes women are putting on their car headlights. You can also add a strip of "crystal eyeliner "to jazz them up.

Now the female DJ was pro-car lashes and thought they were "cute" and a way to make a girls car ... girly.

The male DJ's were not having any of it. They thought it was ridiculous and a waste of money. The guys were definately anti-car lashes.

I really would like them to weigh in on their thoughts of some of the testosterone things guys put on their vehicles.
