The Albrights are in Hollywood!!!

So, we have been in LA for 3 weeks now! I can't believe how fast it has gone! We have been staying at a friend's apartment in West Hollywood. Thank you George! Brandon's show "The Buddy Holly Story" opened last week and he is getting RAVE reviews. The cast is great and he is AMAZING! There's even buzz they may try to take the show on a national tour...Cross your fingers! Here is a picture of him in front of his billboard!!!

Buddy then and Buddy now!

Everyone check out his website to read his reviews and for ticket info if you want to see it!

We got his album this week too! Finally! He's been compliling this for years! You can get one from his website!

What have I been doing in LA??? Working! My brother in law and I have started a short sale management system called We are so excited about it!

It's a great tool for realtors. Short Sales are going to be here for awhile and this makes the frustrating process a whole lot simpler for agents. If you have realtor friends tell them about it or send them our way!

Oh, and we lost both of the keys to my car!!! It took joining AAA, 3 tow trucks, a key from ebay...(that ended up not working even though the dealership said it would)...Porshe ended up ordering a key...and a week and a half later I finally have my car back! It was a complete nightmare!!! I'm going to guard that key with the lives of my future babies!!!

The worst part about LA is our families aren't here. We miss them so much! My mom and dad are coming this weekend and we are so excited. Brandon's sister Michelle is coming down with her husband Deloy and their cute little boys! Hooray! The rest of Brandon's siblings are coming next weekend and we can't wait! (Except for Ashlee, since she is due to have a little baby boy in two weeks! Come anyway Ashlee! Hold that baby in!) I wish my sissy's could come down, but Kirsten had her 6th baby not long ago and Carol is so busy working and toting her kids to dance and baseball games. Both my sisters are amazing moms!

Although we miss our families, we have gotten to hang out with our good friends the Sutphens. They have been my parents best friends for-evah! Here's a picture of us minus Brandon after eating at the Claim Jumper.

Well, that's it for now! We'll be back home in Vegas in a few weeks and then who knows where??? Back to LA, New York, maybe a national tour??? We're just enjoying life and seeing where it takes us!

A few weeks ago Carol, Papa, and I took all the babies to the snow! They're not really babies anymore :(. All my neices and nephews on my side came except for Brookie. She has issues with wearing coats, hats, mittens, socks etc, so she decided to stay home with her mom. We sure missed her though! We had a blast! We sledded, had a snowball fight, the girls made a snow resturant which later turned into bunkers for the snowball fight...and then on the way home we made hot chocolate. Here's some pics!

Well Hello Dere!

Okay, The Albright Blog is back! At least for right now. I'm not making any promises. Here's the last year and a half in a nut shell. I was Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie

Brandon was Buddy in the Buddy Holly Story

If you missed it you can see video on Brandon's sweet new website You can also listen to his music from his album "Armed in Silence" which we are putting together. Brandon's also been cruisin' a lot with a Franki Vallie tribute show "Oh What A Night" It's been so fun for him and us to get the chance to travel so much. We've been to Bermuda, the Mexican Rivera, New England, and the Eastern Carribean in the last 6 months. He's in Tahiti right now with the show.

We also went to Cancun over Thanksgiving with my family. It was a blast! Both my sisters and husbands were there with their kids and of course Nana and Papa were there.

So pretty much we've just been beach bums with a little singing in the middle! Life's so hard! Anyway, that's the jist. If you want to see pics from our travels check out our facebook pages!

Gone for two weeks!

So, my husband left yesterday for two weeks. He got a gig as a guest entertainer on Norwegian Cruise Lines. I'm so excited for him, but so sad that he will be gone soooo long. But, get this, he comes home for two days and then we leave for NYC for a few days and then board our cruise on, yes, Norwegian Cruise Lines! A few weeks before he got the gig, we booked a 13 day cruise on Norwegian. So, he'll be on a ship for most of Oct. Life is so hard! I can't wait for our vacation together!

He's only been gone one night and I was totally freaked out! I didn't think I would have a problem. I lived alone for quite awhile before I was married. Lily woke me up around 3am because she had to go to the bathroom. So, I opened the bedroom door and went back to bed. Then, I had a dream that someone was breaking into my house. I was up for an hour scared out of my mind! Sweetheart come back and protect me!

This is a little random, but last weekend we went to Newport with Brandon's family. We could only stay a day, but had a blast on the beach! I love the Albright Newport tradition. We boogie boarded, laid out, took a walk on the beach, hung out with all the babies...Brandon got thrown up on by one of his nieces...Good times! Here's
some pictures...

The Sleepover!

So, a week ago we had a sleepover with all my nieces and nephews. It was a blast! No one cried or fought. They are such good kids! We made smores on the firepit, set up tents, and tried to watch a movie outside with the projector, but couldn't because the speakers wouldn't go loud enough. So, we ended up inside watching "The Neverending Story". However, the highlight of the night was definately the play they put on. They decided to do "Aida" and, of course, I had to help with costumes and make-up! Check out the boys abs! Brookie as Princess Amneris Radames and his army The whole cast Washing the filth of battle from his skin Aida takes over! The slaves

I haven't been able to upload the video of the show. I'll keep trying!

Brandon's audition opportunity!!!

So, Brandon's going to kill me for writing this, but I just love it so much! He got contacted by a show in town who is looking for a new lead singer. Someone affiliated with the show saw Aida and recommended him for the job. What show is it? Drumroll please....CHIPPENDALES! Isn't that great! He is so flattered! I'm so proud that my husband got asked to audition to be a CHIPPENDALE. Don't be judgy, but we decided we should go see what the show was like, so we went on Tuesday night. It was quite...mmm...exciting...and a lot dirtier than we thought. I thought they would just be dancing in their skivvies. Not quite...Anyway...
I don't think Brandon will be part of the show, but what a compliment!!!
