Hanging Out with The Saturdays as a Fly on the Wall

When my daughter Courtney won a trip to New York City to see The Saturdays, I said, “Who?” She informed me that they are an all-girl pop band similar to The Spice Girls.

My second question was, “Can I go?” I frantically tried to fold myself into her carry-on bag to no avail, so I got another idea. I could be a fly on the wall!

With my new transformation, I easily crept into Courtney’s bag. She never noticed I was there! Can you find me in each of these photos?

Courtney takes New York

Courtney and her friend Allie (who entered her email in the contest) were flown out as guests of the band and E! Entertainment. They stayed at the very fabulous Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

I couldn't help myself!

The Mercer Kitchen in SoHo was So Delish!

We are Winners!

Another exquisite meal, this time at Becco while Allie and Courtney express their winning attitude!


After party-busing to the concert, the girls enjoyed VIP treatment. They met the eight other lucky winners.

All close up and personal with The Saturdays! It was no surprise how many guys were in the twenty-something audience.

Courtney and Allie’s favorites – Mollie and Frankie.

Courtney and Allie are surrounded by The Saturdays.

The British/Irish pop band has been together since 2007. They have 11 Top 10 Singles and 3 Top 10 albums in the UK. They hope to achieve the same success in the United States. The New York performance coincided with a media blitz including an appearance on Chelsea Lately, (love her!) Jay Leno, and The Today Show. They have their own reality TV show, Chasing the Saturdays which premiered on the E! Entertainment Channel, Sunday night. The series chronicles the girls while shooting a new dance video, recording their first internationally released album and of course all the drama that unfolds while residing in California. Five hot UK girls living in Hollywood. What could possibly be interesting about that? *wink to all the guys out there*

After arriving home in Boulder, I slipped out of Courtney’s bag and transformed into my old familiar two-legged self. I’m glad to be back, but my arms are sooooo sore…

    1. I don’t think many do know about them, unless they caught some of the appearances last week. They are just hitting the States and have attracted an somewhat older crowd. Courtney and her friend were the youngest winners.
      I think once their single is heard on the radio, all the little girls (and boys) will go nuts!

      Courtney heard a rumor that Justin Bieber was lurking in the balcony, most likely checking out the only single girl, Mollie!


    1. Oh I don’t know if I need ALL that information! Hahaha!
      I had to look up David Gandy. He is pretty hot in a smoldering kind of underwear model sort of way! Whew. I need to open a window.. Leave it to the romance novelist to get things started! Hahaha!


  1. I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist hogging your way into your daughter’s trip, just to squeeze out a post! That’s a memory of a lifetime for Courtney. What’s the channel for that show again?


  2. I should have never opened this at the office! The site of you on that window caused an out loud laugh…it’s hysterical! I Coolest trip EVAH for your daughter…just amazing and it looks like they had a wonderful time. You out did yourself with this on the creativity meter. I’m scrolling back up to laugh again….hahaha


    1. Oh thanks Lisa! I was hoping I could get a few smiles out of my silly endeavor and do a shout out for Courtney and Allie. They did have a great time. They loved being in The City on their own!


  3. Saw The Saturdays on Chelsea. They’re cute, but I’m beyond girl groups. I’ll check the show on E! but I’m not hopeful. Hot young girls in Hollywood are beyond my reach and watching might turn out to be frustrating. I’m past being a twenty-something male and might come accross as a Dirty Old Man.


    1. Hahaha! She has eclectic taste which includes alternative. Does that count?
      She loved the city! I am proud that they handled the whole trip on their own! Next time, I want to go too!
      Thanks Guapo!


  4. Bet Courtney had a great time (and her friend) while you were just “hangin’ out” here and there. By the way Susie, No more snow dancing unless you can contain it locally. We got another 6″ last nite – and 6deg this morning.
    Stretch those arms out now and relax.


    1. Courtney did have a blast in NYC. 🙂
      Dang! The mountains really need the snow. It was like an ice skating rink yesterday and only a few of the steep runs are open. All I see are sunny skies in the forecast 60 degrees tomorrow. What????


        1. In Boulder! The front range (at the bottom of the foothills where the plains begin) is always mild compared to the mountains. We need some major dumpage in our Northern mountains too. Wave your arms around and send it our way!


  5. You are, without a doubt, the cutest fly I’ve ever seen! I’m so glad your daughter got to go and so much fun. The pictures are great. It was sweet of her to take your flyness along with her (even though she didn’t know she was taking you).


  6. Haha! You are too funny, girlfriend! You make the cutest bug ever. That is one amazing trip your daughter and her friends are sure to remember for a long time to come. Thanks to CC for that HOT board link. *fans self*


    1. Courtney had a blast. It was a huge confidence builder for her. They navigated NYC like it was a second home!
      CC cracks me up. I think I had a dream about that guy last night. Hahaha! Yeehah!


  7. I’m glad they had fun, Susie. New York is a great city, and this post was an excellent way to share the experience with everyone. Good thing for you they didn’t score tickets to Spider-Man.
