…Easter’s on its way!!!
Hello Lovies! How are we today? I am THRILLED that it is Friday. The weeks are flying by! It’s like I am going along minding my own business and all of a sudden “HEY! IT’S THURSDAY!” and I have to start thinking about my week so I can blog about it!
I don’t know about you, Internet, but when time is flying by so fast I find it really truly very hard to do recap posts because nothing seems to have happened – I just blinked and it was the end of the week!
I need to work on that.
This week seemed fairly boring when I sat down to write this – there was one BIG blog-worthy moment, but that will be coming on Monday. Get your bodies ready internet. It’s gonna be good. – But after some soul searching, I remembered some fun things to write about!
Peter and the Starcatcher.
OH MY GOSH INTERNET!!!! My mom and I saw Peter and the Starcatcher this weekend and IT. WAS. AMAZING. I have been waiting for 2 years for this show to go on tour and come to Chicago and IT FINALLY DID AND IT WAS SOSOSOSOSO GOOD! It is a play that serves as a prequel to Peter Pan and examines how a nameless boy became Peter Pan. Everything was SO GOOD – The story, the acting, the play as a whole piece of theater. Now, I LOVE me some Peter Pan, and this show went above and beyond all expectations. I am desperate to see it again, but I think I will just have to hold out hope that one day I will be able to.
Well this was just a theater-filled weekend! My mom and grandparents, and grandparent’s friends went to see a regional production of Mary Poppins in Wisconsin this weekend. I’ve never seen the stage version of the show, and this one was certainly unique. The theater we went to has a small theater in the round stage, and it was interesting to see the way they pulled it off. The show was good, but was more closely based on the book than the movie. Since I think the movie is 100% PERFECTION, the musical made me kind of sad and nostalgic. But it was ok.
Ok Internet – I have a rainboot problem. I have the HARDEST time finding rain boots that fit me right and are comfortable. I desperately need a pair (my old pair was from Target and was uncomfortable and got a hole in them this weekend.) As much as I covet a pair of Hunter Wellies I a) can’t afford a pair and b) I’m not sure they would fit me well anyway. I have weird feet issues that I won’t bother you with, but I am really at a loss. Do you ever have an important article of clothing you are desperate for, but you can never find one that works for you? That is my relationship with rain boots.
Who is excited for Easter? I for one am a big fan of Easter – a) remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection is super important. b) Egg shaped candy. I FIRMLY believe that candy tastes better when shaped like an egg, and I will gladly go to the mat on that. Plus Cadbury eggs (in BOTH the mini and cream-filled variety) are my JAM. What are you hoping for in your Easter basket, Internet? Anything exciting?
