It’s been a pretty busy day, and I’m ready for some downtime…but first I’ll give you the rundown of what I did!
I was up around 8 a.m. because I had a brunch and musical date with my mom, Allen and my grandma. It was a Christmas gift from my mom to the rest of us: tickets to Wicked. I’ve seen the show twice before but I must say it never gets old.
I watched Meet the Press with breakfast and then spent a very long time getting ready. It was one of those days when nothing looks right in the mirror…it doesn’t happen to me very often but when it does I get very frustrated!
After I completely changed my outfit, it was time to go pick up my grandma and head to brunch! We went to one of my all-time favorite breakfast spots:
The City Coffeehouse and Creperie in Clayton. This place is fantastic. The crepes are unbelievable and there is something for everyone.
There are so many choices:
But my mom’s crepe was the prettiest of all:
I had some “southern pecan” coffee because you have to have coffee with your crepe. I didn’t drink too much though and I didn’t get jittery.
The show was great. We had a particularly good Elphaba, which is the most important part to me. The thing I always forget about Wicked is that all of my favorite songs are in the first act.
During the show, the Colts were playing an awesome game of football! Chuck Pagano was back AND we beat the Texans. Playoffs start next week and I can’t wait.
After the show, we headed back home and suddenly the house was hoping. My cousin Darcey and her family are in town, so everyone is here hanging out. I spent my afternoon and evening watching football.
I had a popcorn snack:
Today I tried maple and sea salt, which was pretty good! A lot of the flavor got stuck on the bag, which was disappointing, but when you got a handful with flavor it was delicious. Like a fancy kettle corn.
Dinner was Dominos and was not so good. I ate one and a half slices before giving up and moving on to cereal:
Tonight I am cheering for the Cowboys with my dad and trying to relax even with a full house. Tomorrow Allen and I are going shopping! I’ve got some gift cards burning a hole in my pocket. I also have a long run planned…six miles…might be cold!
