A night on the town
Last night I received a phone call from a friend. She said, "can you be ready in five minutes and be gone for the rest of the night." Without even running it by Brent I said, "sure." because i'm spontaneous like that. :) Later I realized it was Brent's basketball night, but being the amazing husband he is, he missed it for me. So my friend picked me up a few minutes later and we headed to Portland to see Grease. It was AMAZING! I haven't been to many shows in my lifetime, but I love them and think they are so exciting. The music (of course) was fabulous. How can you not love grease! The actors/actresses had amazing voices. I kept getting goosebumps, that's how great they were. The show featured Taylor Hicks (American Idol winner a few years back) He had a cameo appearance and then after the show performed one of the singles off his new album (...now for sale in the lobby....) It made me laugh when he started singing, and it was a really great song by the way, and then halfway through he stops and says..."this song is currently on my new album, blah, blah, blah, you can buy it in the lobby following the show" then he continues on with the second half of his song. I just thought that was funny, and a little tacky. I'm so glad I was available to go, thanks Lori!
