“To live is an awfully big adventure.” – Peter Pan
For Valentine’s Day, Honey treated me to a night out at the theater. And not just any theater, but for the East coast premiere of the threesixty production of Peter Pan.
Honey and I don’t always see eye to eye on the topic of the fine arts. But, the hundred year old story of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, the lost boys, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook and the Darling children is one that we both adore. Who doesn’t!?!
Staged in a big white tent on the World of Coke property, the threesixty theater brings to life the magical world of Peter Pan. The theater is just what you’d think – a round stage in a round tent with action occurring in all directions. But what’s truly impressive is how the story unfolds with computer-generated imagery projected onto the walls of the tent, creating the illusion of Peter Pan’s virtual world. Imagine Peter, Tinker Bell and the Darling children flying off to Neverland hand-in-hand while you see the London skyline over head and all around you. Magnifique!
The actors were extraordinary, the set was dazzling, Tinker Bell was sassy and Peter Pan was dreamy. And I got to soak it all in with Honey at my side. I’d say it was a pretty perfect night for such an awfully big adventure!
Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!
While pregnancy for many (outside of my family at least) is nine months worth of excited anticipation, purposeful planning and a hint of nervousness, for my sweet little sister pregnancy was full of issues the doctors couldn’t explain, immense worry and cautious preparation. To say things were rough is pretty generous. She couldn’t gain weight… Read More
Cookie, formerly knows as “the best baby in the world”, has recently (and temporarily) been demoted to just “baby.” That little stinker has not only been into everything, but has developed quite a dramatic, strong willed personality to boot. Here is my supporting documentation for the baby’s demotion: Climbing out of crib I’m not sure… Read More
I used to live on the West side of town, and it will always have a special place in my heart. It felt very small-town like. You know, the kinda place where you not only know the shop owners, but they help your Honeys pick out just the right gifts and know your littles names… Read More
Last week I had the pleasure of dining out with both friends and family over a few remarkably yummy meals. I am reflecting on the good eats of last week because I have been relegated to leftovers from my parent’s visit this week. The Melting Pot A few times a year, usually when bestie E’s… Read More
We loved having Mimi and Ampa here for a short visit last weekend! They not only help tremendously with the littles, but Mimi always cooks delish meals and Ampa always runs out for necessities such as Krispy Kreme, beer, toilet paper and paper towels. While I had my mother captive, I sweet talked her into… Read More
Today started as most days do around here…Honey tiptoes around the house getting ready for work while I quietly lie in bed savoring the last few minutes of peace and quiet until the littles rise. Once they awake, the game is on. I start diaper changing, teeth brushing, hair combing and dressing everyone for the… Read More
