Thanks for my childhood

So yesterday I met Alan Menken, for those of you who do not know who this is, he is Disney's shining star composer who created the music for such classics as "Little Mermaid"
"Beauty and the Beast"
"Pocohantas" "Aladdin"
"Newsies" "Hercules" "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" "Enchanted" I could go on...oh he also wrote the brodway scores for "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Christmas Carol the Musical"

After he came to see the show we were performing (which he wrote) he joined us at our cast party afterwards. He then played us a 20 minute medley of some of his most recognizable songs. It was amazing! All of us were transported back to our childhoods, and it was all i could do to keep from crying. Kendra, i wish you could have been there
Thank you Alan

Angel Food Cake

Sometimes I feel like I have been regressed to the age of 6. Times when the biggest drama was about snack food, and the boys who "liked" you would chase you around the playground until your legs burned. Boarding school isn't much different, the biggest drama is about the simplest things, and you still aren't really sure if that little boy really likes you, or just enjoys the chase.

But then there are the perks of being six, the giant hair bows, lace tights,the newest dolls, and being able to eat as many sweets as you want without hearing that voice in your head chanting "Once on the lips forever on the hips"

So lets all dress like we're six, but remember this one simple rule...

If you wear lace tights on the playground they're bound to get torn

The holidays

I have christmas fever!!!! So i recently bought mint Oreos, mint hot chocolate, and LOTS of new music

Although I can never deny the classics of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, this holiday season the Nsync Christmas album is monopolizing my ipod and I am loving every minute of it!!

I also recently spent some quality time on finding some of my favorite holiday images. enjoy!

What girl doesn't have a love affair with Starbucks seasonal drinks!

The begining

Well i finally broke down and started a blog. This is for my friends and familly back home, and for me. I'm not going to label this blog, because im not really sure what it's going to turn into. But that's half the fun isn't it?
