Eat, Sleep, Drink it up

After flipping through the photos from our most recent trip (see below), I think you'll see how fabulous it was. We had ourselves a really good time. Caleb tried out surfing and discovered that he really loved it. I hardly saw him at the beach and his skin is now about 12 shades darker. It looks like I've gone and run off with my Latin Lover. Or maybe just a regular beach bum. And me? This is the first year that I haven't wanted to go, go, go. I relaxed. A lot. And shopped, nearly as much. It was perfect.

OH! My gosh. The best part. We saw Wicked. You know, like Wicked, the Broadway play. And I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. It was absolutely positively the best play I've ever seen, and I've seen Phantom twice. I actually CRIED at the end of the first act, and it's not a sad play. Quite the opposite in fact, it was hilarious. It was just beautiful, and perfect, and wow. I need the music. And I need to see it again, and again. Apparently though, I've already missed the San Francisco performances which totally blows, and I've been trying to concoct a really fabulous reason to travel to um...Chicago....Philidelphia....New York...Hartford, CT.....or really, just back to LA. It's way past wanting now, it's a full blown need. Right up there with vacuum lines.

I downloaded the soundtrack on iTunes. It is really funny how the first time you hear a play, and then when the music is different later, it feels wrong. I always think, No, that's not how it is supposed to be sung!! Our actors did it best :)
I love love loved it too. Very deep and beautiful.

I saw Wicked last December in New York. It was incredible. I've never been one to listen to show tunes, but I can't get enough of the soundtrack. Even my little boys sing 'Popular' in the car. Their dad rolls his eyes when he hears our 4 year old singing it around the house. It's awesome.
