Wicked

My sister Julia took me to see Wicked in LA on my birthday. I'd been hoping to spend the day at Disneyland with my girls and hopefully my sisters and Dad, but when Julia suggested Wicked I thought it sounded less risky. Standing in lines all day with a 2 year old strikes me as unwise and I wanted to have fun on my birthday. So my Dad stayed home with the girls and Julia, Annie, and I drove out to the Pantages theater. I had so MUCH FUN. I loved the musical. I pretty much knew I would love it. I've never met a single person who saw it and didn't LOVE it, so it seemed like a safe bet. It was fabulous. I would totally see it again.
Before the show we walked around on Hollywood Blvd to kill the time. We ate at a Greek restaurant and took pictures and laughed and laughed. One of the things that got me laughing the hardest was the funniest pictures we got of Julia. In fact, it's even got me laughing now. Kind of a Wicked laugh. She's going to kill me when she sees this.




She and Annie made the night a lot of fun for me and helped me remember how lucky I am to have such wonderful sisters. We sure missed Maggie, though! (Although that Greek restaurant NEVER would have happened if Maggie were with us. No freaking way she would have let that happen.)

When I got home that night, my Dad had fed the girls, bathed them, washed their hair, and put them to bed. There were balloons, a gift, cards from him and the girls, and this delicious chocolate cake which made for a delightful breakfast the next morning. Thank you Dad!
