You get paid to do what?

Friends, I'm so sorry I've been MIA since last week. I was planning to put up a blog post telling you I'd be MIA, but then I got busy getting ready to be MIA and forgot to tell anyone where I was. 

So I'm sorry I've been missing, but this is what I was doing
It's about 15 miles to the LOVE SHACK!
Friends, that's me singing karaoke to Love Shack. I know what you're thinking. "Michele, that's nothing. Everyone does karaoke. And every one sings 'Love Shack' when they sing karaoke." Not so fast. 

I'm not only doing karaoke, but I'm doing karaoke at a client's trade show. And my duet partner to my right, is one of my client's customers. Oh, and did I mention that this client is a brand new client that I just met face-to-face for the first time on Sunday?

Now how big is this photo? 

So I was at my (new) client's user conference coordinating and supporting their on-site social media efforts. So I promise that I was really working. In fact, I was working so hard, that I needed to have a little fun. So when the customer (whom I'd met the night before "networking" at the hotel bar) said he wanted to do karaoke, and asked if I'd be interested in singing with him, I couldn't say no. I mean, we were only singing in front of about 2,500 professional people.

I don't mean to brag, but we tore the house down! It was such a fun experience, and was special to walk off the stage and get high fives from people who really thought you were good. So needless to say, sometimes my job is REALLY awesome, especially when I'm getting paid to support on-site social media in a really fun location, and sing karaoke to thousands of adoring fans. 

Oh, and about my outfit. It's my new favorite. I have some picture posts for you coming soon, but it's pretty fair to say that I might have a crush on that skirt.



  1. You are a riot. You have more balls than me - I don't think I could ever do karaoke, in front of a client or not! LOVE the skirt btw

  2. That is AWESOME! definitely got some balls girl. I love that skirt too! more pics! where from?

  3. Thanks ladies! It doesn't take much for me to want to be the center of attention, so it was pretty easy to get up there.

    The skirt is the Kate Spade one I blogged about on the old blog (RIP.) Stephen took photos of me in it last week, I just need to put it up.

  4. You are brave with a capital B lady. That's awesome!

  5. I love this!!! You look like you are having so much fun! And you also look great. I love that you did this with clients!

  6. Kristin - Either brave with a B or crazy with a giant C!

    Kristen, appreciate your kind words. I was definitely having fun - one of the more fun moments I can remember in a while!
