The rock'in Rockettes


Ok The rockettes were so much easer to get to no bad traffic and not a horrible parking spot. At least it didn't cost twenty dollars to park this time. It was at the grand ole oppry house and it wasn't real packed because they didn't use the side wings very much. What supprised me first off was the age of the crowd they were like my Mom and Dad's age. I know I saw more canes that night than ever before, and they weren't white with red stripes, they were the kind that whack you over the head when you do something wrong. We definitely were the younger age group. We scored great seats, 8th row so we were pretty close to the stage. Ok so I admit I did have some pre conceived notions as to how the show would go. Well I was wrong on most counts. It was very much what I would expect out of a Broadway play. The Rockette's didn't make there entrance until a few scenes in. It was like the musicals I used to be in in High school but this was good and it had an intermission (I think that was so cool). They had eleven acts in all. They opened the show with a great song called" We need a little Christmas". The ensemble singers danced and sang impeccably, I believe it was the best thing I have ever seen (as far as shows go). The Rockettes did what you would expect them to do a lot of tap, a lotta leg, a whole lotta fancy foot work. The whole show was a "positive" spoof of all traditional Christmas fan fair. The Nut cracker was dancing bears, so cute I have know ideal how they danced in such huge costumes but it was supper. The Rockets dressed as wooden shoulders. There pants were starched so strait that it seemed as though the fabric in the pants would crack if they moved the wrong way. They had some remarkable maneuvers and at the end of that scene they all fell like wooden solders. Other scenes featured, holiday time in new York, Santa's workshop (where the Rockettes were dressed as rag dolls) and like a double finale. The first was pretty much to the song "Carol of the bells" and the last and longest scene was the Living Nativity. They had real animals real sheep and not one not two but three real camel's! I think a donkey but I was pretty fixated with the camel's so I may have missed an animal or too. I know it was the first time I had ever seen one that close (other than the zoo). A narrator told the standard version of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, what was not standard were the elaborate costumes in this particular scene. They were elaborate and decadent, glittery and shimmer. Over all the best show I've ever been to.

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
