the things i do for my job . . .

yup, that's right, i'm standing on stage holding a show poster and a bag of swedish fish candies.

why?  good question.

tomorrow night we have a show called "almost queen" coming to our theatre.  everyone is beyond excited about it because short of going back in time in a time machine, they are the closest thing you can get to seeing the real queen.  

it turns out that "almost queen" is our local weather man's favorite band and he has gone all over following the band to see them play at different venues.  he reached out to me and asked if he could promote the show on this morning's forecast.  ummmm, yes please!

one of the antics that he does on his forecast every morning is have the local audience send in photos of themselves pointing and then he overlays the photos on top of the weather map to match it up with whatever weather system is coming into our area.  he asked me to be his "pointer girl" this morning holding an "almost queen" show poster and anything that was related to fish (because fish was the theme this week for his pointers).  i couldn't find a correlation between queen and fish, so we grabbed a bag of swedish fish candy since we sell that at our theatre's concession stand.  

thus, here is yours truly looking like a nut on television for tons and tons of people to see this morning on all 5 forecast broadcasts!  (and if you know me at all, you know i have all 5 broadcasts recorded on my dvr!)

listen, i don't want anyone to ever question my dedication to my job or what kind of crazy antic i will do in order to promote the theatre or to sell tickets!  i definitely deserve a raise for this, right?! ;-)

here is one of the five broadcasts . . .

have a great weekend (and come see my show!!!)

what a view

ryan carried leko up the steps in a football hold on monday night and i was behind them.  i could not stop laughing at the view of leko's two back feet dangling there under ryan's arm.  surprisingly he was pretty comfortable in that position and liked it there!

these two make me smile

wacky wavy

on sunday, ryan and i worked goodwill's annual fashion show at the theatre.  my parents were models in the fashion show (and i can't believe i never got a picture of them)!

when we were setting up, i did snap a picture on my phone of ryan posing with the "wacky wavy" after he got it set up outside.  here is a clip of the fashion show that aired on our local tv station on sunday night.

love, laurie

a chance to dance!

on saturday afternoon i got the chance to join my mom at her dance class!  it has been 4 months since my dance recital when i last danced, and it has been nearly two years since i last danced with maria.  even though my dancing body was unbelievably out of shape, it was so nice to be able to dance with both my mom and maria again!  it was such a nice unexpected treat that really brightened my weekend up after a very crazy week at work!  i'm glad my mom snapped a picture on her phone of me with maria.

busy, busy, busy

it's been a busy week prepping for an annual fashion show which will be held at the theatre this sunday.  we've transformed our lobby into a pop-up shop filled with the best-of-the-best finds from the local goodwill stores and we've been on a "media tour" to promote the show.

we stopped by our local tv station on tuesday for a live broadcast (you can see the clip here) and then went to a local radio station on wednesday to tape an interview which will aired this morning (you can listen to the interview here)!

have a great weekend!
love, laurie

hey, thursday

we found this unique flower when we visited ritter's farm stand with our parents two weekends ago.  i'm not sure what type of flower it is, but i think it looks like coral under the ocean.

it's thursday and we're trucking through trying to survive this week.  it's been a nutty one.  i'm convinced the three-day columbus day weekend messed with everyone's heads.

here's to thursday!  i'm super looking forward to seeing my mama this morning for breakfast before work!  what a nice treat!

love, laurie

many "sits"

this guy has been loving the cooler fall weather and hasn't missed any opportunities to sit on my lap whenever i've sat down on the couch.  i am certainly not complaining!!!

on air

over the last three years, i have had the opportunity to go our our local tv station's "pa live" segment to promote upcoming shows (may 2018 / june 2017 / june 2016).  today i'm going back on the show to promote some of the fall shows at our theatre and the company that owns our theatre.  if you live in the area, be sure to tune in between 4pm and 5pm eastern standard time.  our portion should be on near the end of the hour.  i'll be sure to post a link to the segment once it goes online!

tomorrow morning i'll be continuing my local "media tour" (ha!) and going on the rock 107 radio station to record an interview about the same upcoming shows.  i'm not sure yet when that will air, but i'll be sure to share a link to that too when it's available!

love, laurie
