Singing Machine & WILW

So yesterday I was a BIG tease!! It's OK I know. =)
We didn't get washed away by the FOUR INCHES OF RAIN AN HOUR, so I made it to the 'performance'. I have been singing with my brother-in-law at a local bar here in Orlando.
Larry got the gig originally and we went and watched him.  It made me want to get back to singing in a VERY bad way! So after that first night, I got with him and told him I would LOVE to sing if ever he wanted to take a break and just play guitar.  He was definitely up for that. 
So on Tuesday nights for the past 2 weeks I have been singing acoustically at this bar.  =) Every week I get fewer and fewer butterflies!! It's been amazing! 2 out of 3 weeks, our close family friend (who also took our amazing wedding pictures) has been coming up and taking pictures -- I will share a few =)
The set list for the first night was:
Marry Me - Train
Stay - Sugarland
Familiar Taste of Poison - Halestorm
Lucky - Jason Mraz (Larry) & Colbie Caillat (Me)
It was a short list but I didn't know how it would go AND we had limited time to practice/learn songs.
The second week:
Lucky - Jason Mraz (Larry) & Colbie Caillat (Me)
Marry Me - Train Stay - Sugarland
Familiar Taste of Poison - Halestorm
My Happy Ending - Avril Lavigne
Undo It - Carried Underwood
Last night -- we didn't have our photographer =/ because it was trying to monsoon, haha! =) We had a decent crowd and they changed the sound systems a little which made a HUGE difference.  I already can't wait to go back!!
Set List Last Night:
Undo It - Carried Underwood
Lucky - Jason Mraz (Larry) & Colbie Caillat (Me)
Familiar Taste of Poison - Halestorm
Stay - Sugarland
Bob Marley Medley (I sang harmony -- Larry was lead)
Fully Alive - Flyleaf
Awake & Alive - Skillet (I sang the entire song)

SO NEXT FRIDAY (the 4th), if you are in the CFL area and don't have anything to do, we'll be playing again! =) Email me for the location/time:
