playing with lights

one of the companies that we work with frequently in our theatre recently purchased new lights.  they wanted to come to our venue to set up the new lights on our stage in order to get some video of the lights in action to use as promotional footage to encourage clients to rent the lights.  

we had a lot of fun over the course of the last two days playing with these new lights on stage.  they filmed their video and i took a ton of photos (over 90!) of the lights doing all sorts of neat effects.  their promo video turned out great!

here are just a few of the many photos i took while we were playing with the lights . . .

birthday celebrations

since my birthday fell on a wednesday last week, we all got together to celebrate this past weekend on saturday.  my parents and ryan's parents came up to our house for dinner and dessert.

for dinner, we made cauliflower stuffed shells with butternut squash sauce, balsamic spinach with mushrooms, and lemon parm green beans with pine nuts.  yum!

for dessert, i made an oreo confetti cake.  it was three layers of cake with fudge in between the layers, covered in cream cheese frosting, and dripped with chocolate ganache!!!  i love the look of how it turned out and it was tasty too!

after dessert i opened presents from my parents and ryan's parents.  it was so nice to get everyone together.

love, laurie

leko's own theatre

for leko's ninth adoption anniversary last week, we bought him this adorable double decker theatre-themed cat scratcher house that we found on sale at target.  we thought it was absolutely the cutest thing since we work in the theatre and the fact that it has nutcrackers around the outside of it really sealed the deal.

it was delivered last monday and we promptly assembled it when we got home from work.  leko investigated it, but refused to go in it.  during the week, i tried to coax him into it by putting his dinner plate inside.  finally on saturday, i looked over and saw that he got in it all by himself!  i grabbed the phone to snap photos to show ryan!

his little face peering out of the box office window was just too cute!

we're not setting new year's resolutions for 2021 but we are guiding the year with "answers"


we've never been ones for resolutions, but we have set some goals in the past at the start of each new year.  this year, for the most part, we're just gonna roll with 2021 and see how it goes.

thanks to the holderness family for continuing to make us laugh as we start a new year!

also, this keeps circling the internet and let's all agree to be good, please . . .


recently, someone said "there are years that ask questions and years that answer them."  last year was definitely a year of questions, so this year is going to be a year of answers.  i like that.

love, laurie

around the theatre

even though we didn't have a show the week between christmas and new years, we were in the theatre doing a little bit of work on the stage.  i always love when it's quiet in there and it's just the two of us working.

after work, it was time to take advantage of the long, long hallways at work and practice on the hoverboard that ryan bought us for christmas.  we didn't want to break our bodies so we got one of the walkers out of storage and used it as "training wheels" to get our balance on the hoverboard!  we were laughing so hard at the sight of this!

ringing in the new year

we celebrated new year's eve on thursday with our families at ryan's parents' house.  we got together to eat (of course) and watch the christmas vacation movie.  we had a lot of fun playing with their kittens too!

on saturday we went down to my parents' house and spent the day with them (eating again, of course) and watching some netflix while loving up their kittens!


the common theme for ringing in the new year was definitely eating, kitty loving, and sitting on the couch to watch tv.  not a bad way to say goodbye to 2020 and welcome 2021 if i do say so myself!

happy new year!
love, laurie
