What made this an amazing weekend, besides the weather? An awesome Father's Day, celebrating the best dad EVER(!), and a Crooked Hearts performance at Art-o-Matic. It was our biggest performance to date, and we had an incredible time! So many family members and friends came to support us, and the sound was awesome. And best of all, my outfit was awesome, if I do say so myself:
I did my own hair and makeup, and was so pleased with how it turned out that I had to take gratuitous photo (you can follow me on Instagram @mandamiska for more of-the-moment photos, etc.!).
My friend Kathryn also got this great shot at the show, and our friend, Quin, was doing professional videography, so stay tuned for some Crooked Hearts video goodness in the future (even sooner if you LIKE us on Facebook!). I met my bandmate's sweet 9 year old niece for the first time, and the first thing she said was: "She looks like Katy Perry!" It was the sweetest thing ever, I almost cried from laughing. I told her it was the best compliment I'd ever received (even if I don't think I'm nearly at Katy's hotness level). I think it definitely boosted my stage confidence. ;)
Also--this dress! I found it last week while thrifting, and it fit like a dream, even though the tag had a much smaller number on it than I usually wear--the bodice has elastic and the halter is adjustable, so to my surprise, when I tried it on just in case, it was perfect. I squealed a little. Betsey Johnson? Fruit print? 1950s style? It was a match made in heaven--and perfect timing.
Back to the grind now--Mondays are terrible for me, but the rest of the week is smooth sailing. We have some great blogs in store, so stay tuned!
