Wow, 2010 has been good to me so far. I've been kept busy with so many exciting things! Seeing Nate Ruess' new band, Fun. was absolutely amazing. Haley and I waited in line outside for a half hour to get inside. We naively assumed the venue wouldn't be packed and we couldn't have been more wrong. Tons of people. Tons o fans of the Format and now of Fun. It felt more like a sing-a-long rather than listening to someone perform. The crap drive to Ann Arbor, the wait in the blizzard conditions and the sweatiness I experienced was all worth experiencing Nate Ruess' passion again.
My Friday work day was also fun. About four times I year I coordinate something called a Tech Tour where we take college IT students around on a bus to different IT companies with super cool, laid back cultures and then take the students to tour a cool housing option in the Lansing area. I pretty much experience the Tech Tour just as a student would except that I'm freaking out about timing and schedules--we have a tight time schedule to adhere to! I went to my first MSU hockey game too and was in good company.
I bought these shoes last week and I think they will make their debut to the Lansing crowd tonight at the Addy Awards Gala. I need some pop of color in my outfits and these pair of boots spice up my simple black dress.

From the Fun. show:
The jumping bassist is from Grand Rapids and met his roomies that came to support him. They dressed in plaid and were awesome.
