Here's what last night looked like at the house. We ate dinner at 5:30 (yes, we are like little old people!) and then rushed home to watch X-Files for six hours before bed. We are wild and crazy when Sean is spending the night with his grandparents. Luckily in this post I am not talking about last night- I am talking about Wednesday night!

Wednesday night Curtis and I got dressed up to attend the final dress rehearsal of Legally Blonde- The Musical at a local community theatre. Curtis's employer is a big sponsor of the theatre, so they have been hosting parties the night before opening night for certain plays. It's s great opportunity to mingle with other people in the city and see a top rate show. We saw "Hairspray" last year and I had tears by the time it ended, and while there were no tears Wednesday night, my stomach did hurt from laughing!
I love live theatre. There is very little in this world more exciting than seeing people pour out their hearts and souls while on stage in front of hundreds of people. It is truly magical. I have had the pleasure of being in a few plays (Last year at the school where I teach, they allowed teachers to try out for the big plays. I was Mrs.Webber in Our Town and an Oz beautician and chorus member in The Wizard of Oz). I was blown away by the amount of hard work- literal blood, sweat, and tears- that goes into staging a performance. It was the most exhilarating, exhausting and amazing experience of my life. I look forward to eventual getting on the stage again.
But in the meantime, I love plays and musicals. So much fun! I wore my white Dorothy Perkins dress again, pairing it this time with a turquoise cardigan and a lovely green belt. Everything was awesome except for these old peep toe heels. Does anyone else have trouble with peep toes KILLING your feet? I was in so much pain I walked barefoot back to the car. But it was worth it!
