Big ACM weekend

So, the ACM"s were in town this weekend at the MGM Grand. Did anyone notice how freaking HOT it was? Maybe it's the combination between 105 degree weather and makeup. Doesn't always blend together. Usually every year that I work this event, I'm backstage having just walked 10,000 steps to get there with ALL my stuff. This year was so much sweeter!

I was hired to do Allison DeMarcus' makeup (wife of Jay from Rascall Flatts) for a hosting show on CMT that she was filming. So, not only did I have to get her ready for all of that, but also for all the Flatts stuff. The great thing....I just had to get her ready everyday in their suite at the Four Seasons. No lugging my stuff around. No walking a million miles. So easy! We did have a driver take us to the Annual Harley ride, the celebrity golf tournament and then the Fremont concert with Sugarland. Jay was so sick all day so he missed everything on Saturday. Sunday was so easy jut miserably hot! We spent 3 hours in the room hanging out getting Allison ready. Eating, painting toes, hair, makeup, really was so fun. I think I made a new friend. Jay had a lot going on besides trying to recover from being sick. I went and got us all Sonic drinks. They love the Sonic ice even more than me! Hard to believe I know. The driver came to pick us up and take us to the red carpet. That is when the madness began. There were screaming fans everywhere. Freaking out over Taylor Swift AND my man Keith Urban. He is beautiful. I just had to make sure Allison didn't look sweaty at all. Easy enough. Well, not really with the heat. Anyways, it was a great weekend. I'm so glad I got to do something a little bit different this year!
