Yet again, I'm titling a week-late blog post, "Catching Up." I'm so tired of being so tired all the time!! I can't wait until ONE DAY when I have a "normal" life again and I'm not exhausted and loopy and unmotivated all the time!
Sigh. Thanks for listening.
Now, ancient convention pictures, so we can move on and see super cute baby pics from this most recent weekend...
Let's start with the highlights of Thursday night:
I finally found a gift shop. But I did not buy this hat.
I did see lots of creative hats, though!
I get the elephant. But not the frog.
There were even hard hats. (and hard looks, too, apparently)
I had several more Sarah Palin hair sightings...
All sorts of variations. I'll spare you all of the pictures (there were many)
I'd say she was definitely the star of the convention!
Truth be told - I was much more interested in this man.
THE TOM BROKAW!!
He and Chuckie T were just one skybox away... chatting it up....
And eating pizza.... my friends, I'm going to let you in on a little secret... we in the media are just like you.
We eat pizza.
And watch football.
Yup. The guys in the skybox were much more fixated on watching the Redskins than they were...
watching Mr. Red State, John McCain.
It was powerful stuff watching him give that speech, I must say.
At the end, the McCains and the Palins took the stage and the crowd went WILD.
Then it was time for the infamous balloon drop!!
I have never seen so many balloons in my life.
Note to my family and friends: I have a birthday coming up, you know.
And it's kind of a big deal. A last hurrah, if you will.
I think it's the perfect occasion for a balloon drop!!
So, after hours of sitting around watching politicans and football players... it was showtime!
Live shot city!
Live interview with Senator Brownback from Kansas.
And that was pretty much a wrap.
