I got to see Sound of Music! Went off without a hitch Sunday – I even got the train before the hockey playoff game ended. Super sweet.
I’ve been in full on distraction mode with work projects building up and my family’s new puppy being critically ill, which has translated into finding an ebook series and immersing myself in it so thoroughly that I am up reading until midnight and reading on my lunch breaks. Luckily, there’s only one more mini story to read – well, actually, there’s an entire third book left to read, but I think I’m skipping it. A review mentioned that it’s two years later and the same issues are reappearing, and that’s boring. We’ll see how the rest of the week goes, if I need the extra distraction or not, hee.

I wanted to look nice for my storytime, but also, you know, be able to jump and pretend to be a dinosaur. It worked!

A bit more casual for a matinee show, but still worthy of the freaking amazing theater. Pics below.

I’ve missed these shoes! They weren’t very wearable this winter. I also still love this cardigan, but it’s reading very blazery in my outfits lately. I’d like to avoid that, unsure how.

I also added my Gap boyfriend cardigan, because it was warm enough for knee socks but not short sleeves. This didn’t come out quite like I wanted, but it’s okay.

I love this shade of orange! It’s a delight to wear, especially in the midst of a streak of grey, rainy days.
Sound of Music stage! I got bumped to row 10 for them losing my Friday ticket. Seat was amazing. The singing, costumes and set were all astounding (though Billy Zane needs to learn how to project). The acting was fine, but I think they could have taken some risks and had some more fun with it. There were flashes of fun and life, especially with Maria, but they played it super safe.
They had costumes from La Traviata in the downstairs area, and they were GLORIOUS.
My friend at work went to a clothes swap and found some awesome things for me and another coworker. This is what I ended up with:
My favorite collar, outside of a peter pan!
YOU GUYS THIS DRESS IS AMAZING. I need to fix the collar, sew on some new beads, which will surely take much longer than I plan, but when it is ready, it will be amazing.
