Last night, we went to see Wicked!! It is in Denver for a few weeks, so we went to see it! We saw it the last time it was here, but I enjoyed it much more this time. I wasn’t familiar with the music before, plus our seats were way off to the side of the auditorium, so it was difficult to see everything on stage.


I love this show for so many reasons. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the music, the costumes are beautiful and the story is creative. But even more, I love the deep themes that run throughout the show. I am definitely not a deep thinker, but this musical really makes me think about good and evil and how we perceive them. I love it!! If you ever have the chance to see Wicked, do it!

Gaylord Opryland

I was in Nashville for 3 days this week for a work meeting, and we stayed at the Gaylord Opryland. That place is crazy! I didn’t get any pictures of the outside, but here are a few inside.

The shot from my hotel room balcony (keep in mind these are all inside the building)

The river inside–you can actually take a boat ride throught the hotel!

It was AMAZING! I would love to go back again, because there were tons of things in the hotel that I never saw. It was awesome!!

Wag ‘n Trail

Several weeks ago, my sister and I participated in the Wag ‘n Trail, a fundraiser for the Denver Dumb Friends League, one of our local animal shelters. This is a cause near and dear to my heart, because this is where we found Oscar! It was a 1.6 mile hike in an open space park south of Denver, and it was a beautiful day. We had a great time!
