I'm back from Southern Colorado and my grandmother's estate auction--whew. I'll post all about that later when I've organized my thoughts.
Did you watch the Tony Awards on Sunday night? I missed part of it because we went out to dinner, but I was thrilled that I didn't miss the one part I was most anxious to see:
"Anything Goes" with Sutton Foster! Girlfriend brought it, as usual. She is simply incredible! We were lucky enough to see her perform in The Drowsy Chaperone on Broadway a few years ago, and she was amazing in that as well (she was Tony-nominated for that role too). Several years ago, she appeared on an episode of one of those makeover shows on TLC. She was very charming, down-to-earth and even a bit mousy--not at all what you would suspect an accomplished Broadway leading lady to be, and it only made me like her more!
I've already gotten a start on the nautical fashions part, with this cute rope stripe tee I picked up at Target last week. You could also go with this anchor version:
Both are only $14.99, a fraction of what a ticket for "Anything Goes" will cost you right now! I simply adore nautical-inspired fashion--red and white stripes, boatneck shirts, rope espadrilles--and I'm thrilled every spring when those styles inevitably resurface and I can get my sailor on again, even though I live in land-locked Colorado.
As for the tap dancing, I've taken lessons at various places over the years and I've always loved it, even if I won't be joining the chorus of "Anything Goes" anytime soon. Most recently I took lessons at the local rec center but quit because my knees were bothering me and my tap shoes didn't fit anymore after having a baby. I think it's time to get a new pair of shoes and start practicing my time steps--do you think the teacher would be put off if I wore my new Target tee and a sailor hat to class?
