Lexi's Final Mini Society and Who Are We Going to See in Concert?

Lexi had her final Mini Society last Friday.  In case you haven't heard of Mini Society go here and see what it is.  This time she sold guitar pick hair accessories.  Single guitar pick bobby pins and clips and three guitar picks on barrettes.  She started out with 58 hair accessories and came home with 6.......so it was a GREAT sale.
Now for the exciting concert news.  We will have a late night tonight because we will be going to Oklahoma City.  Lexi has been wanting to see her favorite singer for a while and I finally got tickets.  We will be going to see Taylor Swift!!!

I think it is going to be a long, long school day for Lexi today.  She is so excited!  Here is a small snippet (about 17 seconds) of her opening the concert tickets.  She thought the ski trip was her "big" birthday present and I had told her I had just a small package so she could open something.  Click here and enjoy.  Also, we think Midnight lost one of her 9 lives during this time......lol.

Hi Darlene
Jessica and I are so jealous. We love Taylor Swift. We want to hop on a plane to Oklahoma City right now! We hope you have an amazing time at the concert. The video was great. I love the guitar pick hair accessories she made. That's such a great idea. Would Lexi like us to pick up some 'England' themed guitar picks for her from London next week and send them over?

She is smart smart smart to be selling those picks- everyone must be pumped to be buying them as they look so cool. And the concert?! Wow it will be outstanding I'm sure!

The non profit I work for focuses on prevention especially in youth. Basically, we promote healthy activities for kids to keep their interests off sex, drugs alcohol etc. Anyway, Talyor Swift is one of the top role models for this type of lifestyle so I love to hear about people supporting her! (unlike Miley Cirus, who I'll admit I like at times, but let's just say she's not on the national list of positive female role models for adolescence)

Oh, Darlene- I've missed your wonderful posts!!
I would love to have one of Lexi's guitar pick bobby pins! I play a little guitar, but not very well- maybe it would help me play better! LOL
I hope you all have a wonderful time at the concert- I love Taylor Swift- she is amazingly talented to be so young!
I have to get "caught up" with all your posts so I'm going to read back a few- in the meantime, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

Oh I love it...the video! I remember when I gave Tabitha tickets to her first concert to see New Kids On the Block back many years ago when she was young and she had the same reaction as Lexi. Have fun!

My Lexi loves Taylor Swift and we play her cd's in the car all the time. I would love to take her but she has not been around here yet. Maybe one day she can go see her.

Love those barettes she made...how cute!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Darlene~
Those guitar pick hair barrettes/bobby pins/hair clips are such a fantastic idea! And how exciting for her that she gets to see Taylor Swift in concert! That was such a sweet video of her when she found out, too! I hope you all had a blast! :)

I will let you know about the sisal rug when I get one! :)

Have a great night!
