Musical Review: Fiddler on the Roof

The 2019 Dallas Summer Musical season has come to an end but it ended with a fantastic show: Fiddler on the Roof. I took Keltin’s mom with me to the show and we both loved it. TRADITION! The show begins with an introduction of the family roles of the community; the papas, the mommas. the

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

Weekend Wandering: Dinosaurs and Pencils

This is not a fashion blog but I had to share my new nerdy dress. My friend was in town and we were exploring the local boutiques when I came across this dinosaur print dress. Later that day we headed down to Deep Ellum in Dallas to visit Archer Paper Goods. They carry pencils (along

Weekend Wandering: Dallas Arboretum: Spring Blooms

One of my favorite things to do in Dallas is to visit the Dallas Arboretum while the Dallas Blooms are in bloom. There are thousands of tulips and other flowers. We went on a bit of a cloudy Sunday afternoon but it was perfect because the threat of rain kept many people away. This year

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

Weekend Wanderings: Dvorak’s New World Symphony

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: International Motorcycle Show

Happy Tuesday everyone! The title of this blog post may surprise you. I’m not really a motorcycle person. This is in part because I didn’t grow up knowing anyone that rode and because my own lack of coordination has made me wary of anything on two wheels. Seriously, I managed to wreck a 4-wheeler and

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

Autumn at the Arboretum

This post is a bit late but I wanted to share with everyone the Dallas Arboretum‘s fall decorations. Every year the arboretum builds a pumpkin village around a theme. Last year it was The Wizard of Oz, this year the theme is Neverland. Complete with a Pirate Ship, Pixie Hollow, mermaid, and crocodile. It is worth going to
