Pinch me, OW, wait...guess I'm happy, not dead!

Last night I had a moment.

Actually, 90-minutes worth of moments with the legend, the master -- Mr. Neil Diamond. I clutched my heart in pure joy at least 75 times. I sang. I danced (and chair danced), Chris and I laughed so hard we cried (because at one point, he sounded exactly like this guy). I nearly collapsed in bliss after a soul-stirring encore including my favorite song on the planet: America.

If you have the chance to see Master Diamond in concert, GO! He puts on a fantastic show and he still sounds amazing.

See our Neiltastic glow?
I'm pretty sure Diamond (as he calls himself) was singing directly to me. Even in the 20,000-seat-capacity Verizon Center, seated three rows from the roof, I KNOW Diamond saw me. I felt it. (Besides, we stood out in the sea of white hair, fanny packs and generously girthed-fans.)

And although I had plans to wear sequins (I own some, so it was an option) or at the very least, my glitter shoes, I opted for my surefire stand-out weapon:Bright. Red. Lips.

And the cutest covered-button vintage rose sweater, my black rose purse, rockin' jeans and killer flats.
I can die a happy woman.

Did Chris approve of you posting that picture of him? Probably a good choice not wearing the glitter heels like you had planned, I am sure your flats were much more conducive to all the dancing you did!

I'm so jealous. After I read your post last night, I put on my Neil Diamond cds...just not the same.

Hey Sis, You looked fantastic with that wonderful husband at your side! I loved the roses... and I love your hair pulled back like that. Can't wait to see you over Labor Day. Mom

Did anyone else notice how my outfit is a nod to Cracklin' Rosie Get on Board? Only me? Hmmm....at least one of us is cool.

;)

I keep talking about throwing a Neil party -- who wants to come?
