It's Over Now...

Yes, I got to go see The Phantom of the Opera this weekend. Yea for me! I adore The Phantom. This was the second time seeing it on stage, but that was over 10 years ago, so in some respect it was almost like seeing it on stage again for the first time. The only real bummer was that we made the joke before the show started that we were going to get stuck behind someone tall (nothing personal tall people, but it sucks getting stuck behind you sometimes) and guess what? We did. Fortunately for me, they had these booster cushions for vertically challenged people that were at least 6 inches thick. I still had to sit criss-cross (applesauce) and lean into the ailse to be able to see somethings. Nothing better than seeing The Phantom barefoot! The first half was good, but not great. Some people were a little flat or a little too shrill. Maybe they were ready for a break (it was the final weekend here). The second half rocked however. I was riveted and had plenty of goosebumps. And I got to see it with one of my most favorite people in the world.

My mom. Who loves it as much as I do. Which makes sense of course since I am a clone of her. I'm her own little Mini-Me.

Proof. My husband can't tell if he is talking to me or my mom when he calls me at my mom's house. Truly Freaks Him Out.

Oh, and I converted her. She now has jammies just like me! I knew she'd like them.

Lame picture (I know), it was all that whipped cream!
We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and had us some fabulous food. We gorged ourselves and decided to go back to the Cheesecake Factory for our cheesecake after the show. Marvellous idea! We got three kinds of cheesecake. No, we did not eat it all right then. I took some of my share home for the next day. And no I did not share it.

And the best part of all of this? My girls were gone for the weekend, so I got to sleep in LATE the next morning. And eat the rest of the cheesecake for breakfast!

Awww, you and your mom are so cute. I'm glad you got to make the pilgrimage to Phantom, but more importantly to the Cheesecake factory. My hips are really missing that place!
Also, I REALLY think we should all go see the Twilight movie when it comes out, so get your calendar marked and sound the alarm.

We did have fun didn't we? I love the picture of you and me! I am so looking forward to Dar! AND you gave me an amazing gift today...reading your words made me feel very special, pretty sure I will be feeling this way for awhile. Yes, you are my little mini-me and I do love to mess with Dan when he calls for you...maybe you should give me a script for the next time he calls when we are together =]
~ I love you more than more ~

I am inviting myself to go see Twilight with you "all." And we should get some cheesecake, too.

Wow your mom is young. At first I thought, "oh, i wonder who she old friend from high" Your MOM! You are blessed with genes.
I'm envious. I've only seen Les Miserables..and that was over a decade ago. I'm so glad you got to go.
And I'm on the Twilight Brigade as well.
