Theatre is in the air!

As always, my life is theatrical. I try to surround myself with great musicals because I am very passionate about the theatre. Why I didnt pursue this harder, I will never know. I have always been discouraged I guess b/c of the competition. I have known too many people with the same dream, with more talent and more opportunity that still struggle. I guess I like to eat also.

Anyway, tonight we go see Thoroughly Modern Millie at U of A. I have seen the show once professionally and once that Centerstage did. This show has great music and fun dancing. I haven never seen a U of A show before so Im anxious to see how it is.

Next Thursday we go see Sweeney Todd that Red Mountain is doing. Red Mountain typically does great shows. I've only seen the movie (which I loved)but never the stage version, so excited about that. I know several people in it too so thats always fun.

The girls are auditioning for Sound of Music next week. We'll see how that goes.

Next Friday night is Brent's showcase at Bryant. Brent and I are singing a duet- "Suddenly Seymour" from Little Shop for the showcase. This should be interesting b/c I am not in high school. Also, its a very cliche duet to sing and I have no idea how I will be with it. Maybe I'll get a video so we can laugh.

Coming up in the summer is the possibility of a choreography gig. I have been asked to choregraph A Funny Thing Happend on the Way to the Forum with little rehearsal time. If I'm not 400lbs I would like to do it. This is still up in the air though.

Hayes is getting big!

Here are some new pics of Hayes. I havent seen her in about 3 weeks or so. That is much too long to miss out on this preciousness. She is 3 months old now! I will see you on Sunday Hayes! Don't get too big before I get there.

Don't you want to squeeze her?

Life Update

I see that it has been awhile since my last post. For some reason I just havent felt like writing. I think my energy is just down.

Let's see, I'll go back to last weekend, Easter. We went to Dothan for Easter and it was so nice. I love going to Dothan. It feels like a mini-vacation. My parents feed us well and wait on us hand and foot. Its nice to be home.

This past week we went to see Wicked on Thursday night. For anyone that knows me, knows that since I saw Wicked on Broadway in 2004 I have been obsessed with it. It is hands down my favorite musical (and that is huge). The tour production that came through Birmingham did not disappoint. I was amazed again the second time. Now, my favorite actress of all is Idina Menzel who played the original Elphaba on Broadway and who I got the honor of seeing, so of course she is uncomparable. In fact, she won the Tony for her performance in Wicked. Brent had never seen it so I was excited to see what he thought. He loved it too. Its really hard not to.

This weekend we decided to take an impromptu trip to Seaside. Brent and the girls were on Spring Break and Ive been dying to go so we packed up and made the 5 hour drive. It was a short trip, but fun. We ate good food and had a lovely day on the bach Saturday. Sunday was cloudy so we just walked around the Seaside shops. Unfortunately I have zero pics to share because my camera is broken.

As for Baby J, we are moving right along. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday so please say a prayer that everything goes well. I am finally starting to feel ok. I think (crossed fingers) the morning sickness might be subsiding. I havent felt nauseated in a week. THANK THE LORD! We find out what we are having in about 6 weeks or so!

This coming weekend we are going to prom! Brent has to chaperone the Bryant High School prom every year so I get to be his date. I wore a cute dress the last time, but since I am whale-like I will just keep it simple with a boring black number.

Here and There

This blog will have no theme whatsoever.

Tonight, the 4 of us (in our family) are going to a dinner- theatre- murder mystery- mayhem-type-thing. That was probably the complete wrong use of hyphens but pregnancy makes me confused. Anyway, Brent's brother Gary is in it, so it should be fun.

I have been extremely nauseated this week. Let me tell you how un-fun it is to feel the need to throw up, but not be able to. I constantly feel "on the verge" of running out of the room, but never get there. I truly thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones too. BLAST!

This weekend Brent and I are going to Birmimgham. I have a baby shower and a wedding shower so we are just going to make a weekend out of it. We havent been in a while so it shoudl be fun. I'm planning on getting sweet potato chips from Cafe Iz at some point. Is it sad that this is on my agenda? Of course we have to see Hayes too.

We are staying with Meg. I havent seen that girl in a while, so it will be nice to catch up and hang out.

14 DAYS UNTIL WICKED!! I am very pumped up. I'm thinking of painting myself green for the entire week before. Not really.

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3: 12-14
