{I'm seeing GREEN!} ....and BLONDE!

Once upon a time I heard that this little show was coming to Boise and thought....Hmm...That might be fun!!! So I got on the horn (FB) and spread the word that I wanted to go to WICKED! And what do you know??? Lot's of my friends wanted to go too! So I collected the money, purchased the tickets, and waited. And waited, and waited and waited! And before I knew it, May 10th rolled around and it was time to go!

This has been a crazy week for me because of Jury Duty. I am quite the citizen you know. And although I was excused Monday, and was still on call. But Tuesday came and not service was needed! WHEW! You wanna know why? CAUSE THAT WAS MY DAY FOOL! ;) I prayed and prayed that I would not have to go. I have had a hair appointment with September for 6 weeks. Nothing like getting your hair done on a big day! My dear friend Jacki watched the boys for me and I headed down town to her salon. It was delightful! Nothing like the sound of foil and the smell of bleach! Ahhhh......


Around 5pm we met up at the Cheesecake Factory for an early dinner before the show! I have been there a handful of times before but never realized they have a snacks and small plate menu! Um....Yes Please! I ordered the Stuffed Mushrooms and Crispy Artichoke hearts. They were delectable! I usually order a soda, but my friend Julie taught me how to make "Poor Man's Lemonade" at Denney's after volleyball on Thursday nights. You just ask the server for a bunch of lemon and put it in your water and add Splenda. I am not a fan of Splenda but it is actually better than sugar! (And it's free!!!) HOLLA!

My friend Erin sent me this COUPON for free Cheesecake! It's good for a while so snag it! Kendra and I devoured a piece of Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake!


I am not quite sure how this happened. Tessa's friend Tina asked to see my ring. Then before we knew it she had everybody in the van's ring on! Good thing she is totally pregnant otherwise I think she would have made a run for it!

If you like it then you should have put a ring on it!

The show is about to begin!

If I could only use one word to describe the musical it would be


I was so emotional at the end. It went by so fast! I loved every second of it! It was the most beautiful, touching story about true friendship. Maybe that's why it was so hard for me. Alfie and GaaaaaaaaLinda were such good friends, Alfie leaves, it was just close to home for me. I felt the Spirit so strong when they sang about being better after knowing each other! You were missed Candace! Truly!

8 SAY WHAT??????????????????:
