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

Weekend Wondering: Anastasia

Another musical enjoyed. February has been a busy month for musicals. Not only did Keltin and I get to see The Book of Mormon but I also got to see Anastasia with my Grandmother. My Grandmother helped to foster a love of musicals as a child. I remember watching The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and West Side Story at her house. This musical shares

Weekend Wanderings: The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon, a Tony Award winning musical, finally came to the Dallas Summer Musicals. When I was looking at tickets last year this was one that Keltin wanted to see along with Hamilton. That performance is later this year. We laughed through the entire performance. The Book of Mormon was written by the creators of South Park. Thus

Before Christmas Keltin and I went to see a performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra: John William’s Christmas. Having loved it so much we decided that we needed to go to some more shows at the Meyerson. The first of which was Dvorak’s New World Symphony. Of course the New World Symphony is not the only thing

Weekend Wanderings: Phantom of the Opera

I love musicals and the 2018-2019 Dallas Summer Musical season is scheduled for some fantastic titles. The first of which is Phantom of the Opera. I love Phantom, and have for years; the story, the music is all enchanting. Keltin would have gone to see it with me had I asked him to but I

Review: Wildish Gear

Pink Wildish Tank

I like to think of myself as an outdoorsy person. And in the pursuit of being an outdoors woman I came across Wildish. There products are neat because they are made to help the person that likes to explore at their own pace.  My favorite thing about their gear is that it is seriously some
