We've got a fun weekend ahead of us. MC is playing trumpet for the Beehive Ball this Saturday (where you'll bet I'll be there in a vintage formal dress, walking around the party with my giant camera), and tonight, we've got a karaoke party with some of our closest friends. You can expect MC and I to deliver our signature duets of Under Pressure and Endless Love

What are you doing this weekend?
