Disney’s Aladdin The Musical

So I have not seen the new live action Aladdin movie but I have seen the musical. Emily and I made it a girls night and went to see this musical at Fair Park in Dallas. Despite the normal, crazy traffic of Dallas we had a wonderful time at the show. This version takes out

Texas Hill Country: Walnut Canyon Cabins

During our recent trip to Fredericksburg we wanted to stay somewhere different. Keltin came across the Walnut Canyon Cabins. Wonderful and quiet. The property has seven cabins of varying sizes about 15 minutes from Fredericksburg. The roads to get there were lush with trees and wildflowers and in the evening – white tail deer. We

Weekend Wandering: Symphonie Fantastique

Keltin and I love shows and last weekend was a busy one with Miss Saigon on Saturday and Symphonie Fantastique on Sunday at the Meyerson Symphony Center. The first piece was Brahms Concerto in D Major for Violin and Orchestra. These piece was in three parts. This piece was interesting because there was a full

Weekend Wanderings: Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is always wonderful to watch and enjoy and this latest performance was no exception. The performance started out with The Bells by Rachmaninoff. The Bells contains four movements and I swear each movement is sadder sounding than the previous. The fourth part is actually called “The Mournful Iron Bells” and I

Review: HAMILTON

Hamilton is a play based off the biography Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. Keltin actually read the book in preparation for watching the performance. The musical was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The set for the show is really simple and use quiet effectively. Its also odd because there wasn’t a curtain obscuring the set before

Foodie Friday: Kitchen Knife Skills

Recently I started taking some cooking classes at Sur La Table. This latest one was a bit different though. Instead of going in a cooking a themed dish we learned how to properly use a Chef’s Knife. Safety in the kitchen should be a pretty high priority and this class was great for that because
