my goodness, the weather turned incredibly cold this past week! we were loading out a show on sunday night and it was 28 degrees! that's much too cold for november. leko has been chilly in the house and has been looking for every chance he can get to cuddle with us. of course, we're not complaining.
i woke up the other morning and looked down to find leko nested in between ryan's to legs. what a cute little guy!
we carved out a few minutes to run some much-needed errands the other night. we were starving and there was nothing in the house to eat. we made a quick stop at one of our favorite salad restaurants for dinner. it was so good and made me wish this restaurant was closer to where we live. i'll just have to recreate the salad at home myself!
wow this weekend was packed. in addition to working two on tap, we also worked a one-woman play called the god box, a local college graduation, the load in of the national touring show of elf the musical (which i didn't get a picture of), and both the load in and load out of a large wedding.
this weekend was a busy one! ryan and i worked 5 different shows at 3 different venues in 4 days! wheph! one of the shows that we worked at the theatre was a singing and dancing show called two on tap. by far it was the highlight of my weekend. i loved the performers and their old fred and ginger style!
above are a few photos that i shot during the show. there are more on the theatre's facebook page here. (there's also a little video clip of the opening number here as well as a video of some local students performing in act 2 here.)
for the past several years, the student veterans alliance at the university where i teach has displayed thousands of american flags on campus in honor of veterans day. this year they did their "flags for the fallen campaign" again, displaying nearly 7,000 american flags on the campus lawn. each flag represents a fallen service member. the flags are on display all week and it's really something to see the thousands of flags arranged in perfectly straight lines, blowing gently in the breeze.
we had a great time in nyc on saturday celebrating my dad's birthday. the first thing we did when we arrived in nyc in the morning was head down to the museum at fit. we had never been there before, and were pleasantly surprised to find out that admission was free!
while we were at the museum, we checked out both current exhibitions: fashion unraveled and pink. it was really interesting to see all of the outfits up close. if you're looking for a free activity in nyc to pass some time, i'd definitely recommend checking it out.
my dad's birthday was yesterday! we all got together at our house for lunch. ryan's mom made salad, my mom made lasagna, and we made cake. we had a great lunch and then went out to the movie theater to see bohemian rhapsody. it was a great day filled with great food, a great movie, and great company!
