Karaoke dokey

Last night we hosted about a dozen friends for our first annual karaoke extravaganza. We finally got around to having the party we promised to throw for over a year--and it did not disappoint.
Karaoke is a funny thing: at first it's scary to get up and sing in front of people but after the first song, you can't help but want to keep going up there. A little tequila helps too. For the occasion, we provided some awesome Goodwill finds: shirts, hats (including a fez) & accessories while many guests brought items to share as well, like the bounty of hats & wigs from Sarah & Mika. This karaoke machine was a wedding gift and not to lessen the significance of any other wedding gift we received, this one gets ALOT of use. "BKM" (Before Karaoke Machine), I was not a confident singer --at all--. But it's funny how holding a microphone, watching scrolling words and listening to the muzak-like rendition of a favorite song can change your life forever. Because everyone secretly wants to be a rock star. How could you not?

This is Scott singing Hit Me Baby One More Time by Britney Spears. It's important to note that he did not need to look at the monitor for the words (since he knew them by heart). Thanks to all the brave souls/fabulous entertainers who made the journey to Ballard. We can't wait to have you sing with us again soon. For all the pictures from this event, click HERE.

And while Austin was a little shy on party night, this afternoon we continued the karaoke rampage...
