CRAZY!!! I am SO glad to be home for some rest & relaxation & for some time wth my sweet husband. He has made sure the dog left me alone in the mornings & has been as quiet as possible so i could sleep soundly until i had to get up for work. :) I love him! He is wonderful to me!
The cast lists have been posted & i am SUPER excited! Lots of new faces & familiar ones as well. i am thrilled with the Sound of Music cast & can't wait to begin!
In all the craziness, i only took two pictures! And i had my camera the whole time!
Good friends Natalie & Susan! Natalie is choreographer for RENT.
Susan is the best Stage Manager EVER.
They broke out the chips & salsa!! Susan,

It was tons of fun, but wow. It was a marathon! I am so exhausted & can't wait to get to bed early tonight! We had SO MANY come out & audition & tons of new faces. I LOVE THAT! :) Congrats to all who were cast!!
In all of that madness, i was able to have some time with my sweet mom & mother-in-law! My mom wanted to go to dinner for Mother's Day, but requested that we go the night before on Saturday night. We went to The Grill Room because mom wanted to hear the live jazz band. :) It was fun! Mom, Dad, my sister Michelle & her boyfriend Mike (who i was meeting for the first time! We really liked him!!) plus me & brad. We had a GREAT time. Then on Sunday morning i had brad's parents over for breakfast. I made my Meditterranean Frittata & they loved it! It was great visiting with them! Here are some pics from dinner with the fam on Saturday!
