An American in Paris Dances Onto the Starlight Stage

I’ve seen a lot of musicals in my life, but never one like An American in Paris.

Imagine a story told in song, like an other musical, but the actors are professional ballet dancers. So not only do they sing beautifully, but they walk with the grace of people that […]

Under The Sea: The Little Mermaid Opens Starlight’s 67th Season

Starlight Theatre opened its 67th season of live Broadway entertainment last night with its production of Disney The Little Mermaid, and the girls and I were there to see it happen.

The show runs through June 11, with a total of 8 shows to choose from. Tickets for Disney The Little Mermaid […]

About Me:

I am a dork. And I think I’m funny.  I am a country girl afraid of critters and living too far from civilization.

I am a widow, and remarried.  I have a Master’s Degree but no plans to use it. (I wasn’t born with the Ambition Gene).

I had baby fever BAD after the youngest was born, but have since settled into a “Four, No More” attitude. (I hate to see my babies grow up, though) I’ve battled depression twice, after the birth of both of my girls, and still get pretty dang pissy sometimes.

Things that make me pissy? Standing in the rain. Standing in the snow. A long night after a long week. The kids not bothering to listen to me. The dogs not listening to me. Dog hair on the bed. Mud from paws on the bed. Running out of eggs. Ruining dinner. Clutter in our messy, cluttered house. Cooking a gluten free meal and the gluten free girl refusing to eat it. Children splashing water out of the bathtub. Toddlers climbing on tables. And clipping little fingernails.

Despite all of that, I try to enjoy my days and the moments that make up our lives.

Things that make me happy? The color pink. Diet Dr. Pepper with Cherry during happy hour. Girly drinks (sangria, mojitos, and daiquiris, oh my!). Non-sticky lip gloss. Kids that say “please” and “thank you” of their own free will. Cooking a gluten free meal and someone declaring it the “best food ever.” Time with my best girl friend to laugh and vent and laugh some more. Child free drives and cranking the music in the car. Hilarious conversations with little interrogators. And pedicures. 

We live out in the Kansas country, cooking it Gluten Free and keeping the crazy contained (mostly).

I've got my sassy pants on
