Mother Monster is Gagaliscious

 Mother Monster

Hello Followers!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I know I did! I was spending time with my nephew, precious baby Lane. Look at how adorable he is! Seriously, I just want to squeeze him! So cute! Jacob & I even had to watch baby Lane by ourselves one whole day and I am happy to say that we all survived. Lane was a model baby, but we had a stern discussion about what was acceptable behavior for Aunt Lenzie. I told him that there would be no spitting up on me, no pooping on the adorable outfit I picked out for him to wear and no crazy crying fits while in public. He listens very well! I think he just loves his aunt Lenzie.

 Sweet Laney Poo needed a little nap before eating lunch!

Look at how cute he was in his preppy little outfit!

We also went to the Louisville Slugger Museum and he got his first baseball bat.

It has been a very busy month so far and it doesn’t look like it will get less busy any time soon! I wanted to share our Gaga experience with you all. My best fran, Amber, and I went to see Lady Gaga and it was AH-MAZ-ZING! True Story! She puts on one heck of an amazing show and the best thing is that she does NOT lip-sync, unlike some other female pop stars (..Cough Britney Spears Cough..).

 She is crazy! Fun, but crazy!

Even if you are not a Gaga fan, you should attend one of her concerts for the incredible people watching. I can honestly say that I saw just as many men as I saw women in booty shorts, fishnet hose and high heels. It was slight, and by slight I mean extremely, disturbing.

This was the opening act. . . Need I say more? Yes this is a boy!

This Lady is about 60ish. She was definitely too old to be completely falling down drunk and wearing a feather boa and flapper dress. 

 He had an amazing peacock hat!

She was a Unicorn! We should be friends!

We were also disturbed by the amount of kids (young kids, like fewer than 10 years of age) at this concert. Gaga’s songs have lyrics such as, “I wanna take a ride on your disco stick”, “And baby when it’s love, if its not rough it isn’t fun”, “We got a red light Pornographic dance fight” and my personal favorite, “You taste like glitter mixed with rock and roll”. (Side Note: I used the Camena App to get these lyrics, as my sister will attest that I am terrible with lyrics. “Hit me with your best shot” could totally be “Hit me with your pet shark”. There will be a post about this soon.) I love Glitter, like seriously love glitter. I may or may not own spray glitter, glitter pens, glitter eyeliner, glitter dusters, loose glitter, glitter glue sticks and glitter eye shadow and I can assure you that glitter just tastes like plastic. I do not think that the above lyrics are appropriate for children. I would hate for kids to randomly lick people trying to find exactly what glitter and rock and roll tastes like. Also, I am pretty sure that even a kid can figure out what a “disco stick” is referring to. Not only are the lyrics inappropriate for children, but the stage props,

Implants and dentistry, what?!
Yes that is the Eff word. I hate that word!

 the amount making out, gay and straight, and the bloody mess that became a wardrobe change should all have at least a PG-13 rating.

 Please note the Easter bunny in the front. . .

Latex group hug. . .

I don’t know what really happened here or why there was faux blood all over the place. Weird. . .

Aside from the many blasphemous remarks, which were offensive on many levels, the concert was very entertaining. I have determined that I can only enjoy her songs, because everything else that leaves her mouth is off putting to me and my conservative morals. That being said, we had a GREAT time, we got some incredible pictures and we danced and sang our hearts out!

Amber & I at Gagaliscious!

 Amber, Jordan T and me! We are all little Monsters!

I hope you all have a great week! I am thinking a giveaway should be in order. Check back soon!

Jacobism 4.0

Hello Readers! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My weekend was filled with spreading mulch and planting flowers-boo! I don’t like to sweat or get dirty and neither was avoidable when you are working outside.  It seems that we bypassed spring and went straight to summer. It was over 90 degrees on Saturday!

This is me pouting while pulling weeds. Please not my hot pink and purple outfit! I’m bringing the 80’s back! Haha

Since we are traveling to see Laney Poo this week, I will not be posting until next week. I have to see this sweet baby boy!

This is his Easter hat! We think he is a mini Jason Mraz!

This is how Laney Poo got the nickname “Dandelion Head”. His hair looks like a dandelion after bath time! Haha  (Sorry for the blurry pic, This was when we were skyping.)

Since I will be out of town this week, I thought I would leave you with a short Jacobism. For those that don’t know what a Jacobism is, let me explain. Jacob is my husband who often says the most ridiculous things and me, being his loving wife, posts them on my blog for us all to enjoy. Please find his earlier Jacobisms (here-here, here and here). On to the Jacobism. . .

Things You Should Never Hear Your Husband Say
Jacob forgot his sunglasses, so he had to wear mine on the way to Branson!

Jacob & I are currently dieting. No fun, I know! But I am in a wedding at the end of this month and I really just want to be skinny again. We have daily weigh-ins and have a sort of contest going on between us. I should also mention that I happen to be in the lead, as Jacob was eating Firehouse Subs for 2 weeks before he realized how fattening they were. So I have a slight lead. Yesterday we were discussing how much weight we have both lost and after I mentioned my total loss, I hear this gem escape Jacob’s mouth. This is how our conversation progressed:

Jacob: So how much total weight have you lost?
Lenzie: Well today I am up to 8.8 lbs.
Jacob: I am up to 11 lbs today.
Lenzie: That's good!
Jacob: Can you even tell I have lost weight?
Lenzie: Yes I can tell, Can you even tell I have lost weight?
Jacob: Yeah, I think you lost it all in your boobs. . .
Lenzie: Ummm, Thanks?!

You see, this is one of those times when you ask yourself, “Why did I get married?” I am sure he meant that to be a compliment that he could actually tell that I had lost weight, but since he is a boy, his thoughts rarely come out correctly. Jacob is lucky I have a sense of humor and laughed it off. I am, however, thinking of a comeback if that statement ever arises again.

I will share our Lady Gaga experience next week. Our eyes are still recuperating from the things that we saw at the concert. I hope you all have a fabulous week!
