To say I had an interesting weekend would be a slight understatement. Yep that's me with Ozzy Osbourne:) Have you ever seen a more opposite pairing?? Sweet little Christian Becky with "the Prince of Darkness." I'll explain everything in a minute, but I had to show you this picture first. See the Ozzy tattoo on his fingers? I couldn't take my eyes off it. Apparently he did that with a sewing needle and pencil lead back in the day...ouch!
Met his lovely wife Sharon too, all decked out in her leather outfit:) I had to scrunch down to her height for this pic. I'm only 5'4", so I loved feeling tall next to her. She is the equivalent of Paula Abdul from American Idol. She's the nice judge on America's Got Talent. What a fun job. I used to watch episodes of The Osbournes too when it was on. They are practically the only couple to allow a reality show to film them that has come out unscathed by divorce. That's saying something.
My beautiful friend Kristine was kind enough to ask me to be her date for Saturday night. Her husband Brady works for the Starkey hearing foundation and is responsible for all the fund raising that enable teams to travel the world on mission trips fitting and donating hearing aids. It's quite an amazing thing.
Anyway she knew I would love this sort of thing and really couldn't wait to see my reaction. So I got to keep her company while Brady worked:) Lucky me!!
We parked in a lot nearby and a limo shuttle bus dropped us off at this red carpet. This is Brady's boss' house, Bill Austin. There were approximately 500 people there. Can you imagine having 500 people at your house?
Apparently when you are really really wealthy you collect things. Brady's boss is an avid music lover and sports fan. His walls were lined with autographed guitars, albums, shoes, baseballs etc... The whole time I was looking at his collection I was trying to think of what I would collect if I could. I'm still thinking:)
