For this week’s 52, I got all dolled up for date night with Cory: dinner and a Broadway show. I figured a red lip was required.
And now, my incredibly busy week in pictures…
Sunday (Feb. 19): For Christmas Cory got me tickets to go see Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast at the Keller Auditorium! Sunday was finally the day so we got all dolled up, went out to dinner and then to the show. For those of you who don’t know, I have a problem. I love musical theater. My freshman year of high school my dad took me to see the Phantom of the Opera and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve seen Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, Avenue Q, Mary Poppins, 42nd Street, Chicago, The Producers, Miss Saigon, Rent, Wicked, and Mamma Mia. I even got to see Spring Awakening on Broadway when I was in New York featuring the original Tony Award winning cast. For those of you who don’t know, that means I saw Lea Michelle perform before she was Rachel Berry and Jonathon Groff before he was Jesse St. James. And for those of you who love musical theater, you know how freakin’ awesome that is!
Monday (Feb. 20): I got to have lunch and catch up with one of my best friends and then Cory and I went out later in the evening to Toro Bravo for their tasting menu, which we were supposed to have for my birthday but I was too sick to attend. It was delicious, but a little heavier fare than we are used to. I want to go back during the summer when the menu will be more about fruit and veggies and less about fritters and polenta. The highlight was probably the almond ice cream with hot espresso poured on top. Yum!
Tuesday (Feb 21): I had a fitting at Xtabay Bridal Salon for a modeling gig I’m doing this coming Sunday. I’ll be modeling this little number. It was so gorgeous I didn’t want to take it off! After the fitting, Cory and I stopped in for breakfast at Broder, which is literally right across the street from the salon. Be on the lookout for a full post about Broder soon!
Wednesday (Feb. 22): A couple awesome cacti that caught my eye on a rainy day stroll.
Thursday (Feb. 23): Couldn’t resist picking up the latest issue of Vogue featuring Adele.
Friday (Feb. 24): A very exciting an unexpected thing happened Friday. I found my wedding dress!! A vintage 1950s ballerina wedding dress. It was the first and only dress I tried on. Cory cried. I knew it was right.
Saturday (Feb. 25): Celebrated my grandma’s 75th birthday. Happy birthday Grandma! You can see her in the background of this photos. She created this flower arrangement for the occasion and gave a little speech about it’s meaning. Each flower represents a member of her family. It was super sweet and she had everyone tearing up!
