Holy crap, I have my own Vegas show!

I know--it's just hitting me.

Last night went very, very well! I had a great turnout, I was able to keep my nerves under control and not projectile vomit on anyone, and everyone really seemed to like it. Of course, I'm just out of the gate, and I already know some changes I'm going to make for Friday night's show, but yeah... it was a fantastic experience.


Thank you to all who came out last night and to all of you who sent your best wishes here in blog comments, by email, or by sending positive psychic energy. You mean so much to me.

I have so much to tell you about this whole adventure, but before I rush off to my day job, I just want to say this: Four months ago, my book was still sitting in my laptop and now it's for sale at my own Las Vegas show. If I can do it, so can you. I'm 52 years old; it's never too late. (Okay, at this age, I'll never be a ballerina, but you get the picture.)

Things don't get done by themselves; you HAVE to take the steps to make it happen.

You can do it. I know you can.

Your congratulations are well deserved! Even if the lace tablecloth reminds me of the one's they'd set up in my old church relief society meetings...I'd rather listen to you talk ANY DAY of the week!

And I bet the ONLY one surprised at your succes is YOU! You know how much your support has meant to me, in just this short time? I doubt it, but it does. And I will tip a glass of wine to you tonight, toots, when one of my best friends is here and we are painting together! And you are right... not even 57 1/2 is too old! You? Yer jist a KID. Much love and celebrating energy flying your way from the right-hand coast!

You're awesome - that's why you are successful and making a name for yourself. Wish I could be there to see your show. Could you have someone record a portion of it and post a video of it online? That would be so cool. Congrats on your continued success. You deserve it. You're an inspiration to us all.

I am not surprised that you were a big success!!! I would have been shocked if you weren't. You're my role model. :)

"It's never too late" - You are very wise Ms. Lou! I couldn't agree more. Never stop doing the things you love to do, you'll always get better, and you never know what might happen! You go girl!
