Weekend Gettaway

Well, I didn't technically "get away" this weekend, but I did mentally for a bit. It was absolute heaven.

Pyro Man came in for a visit this weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to open the door and find him standing there holding the most beautiful roses!

Oh, he's such a sweetheart! I had a friend recently ask me "Why do we call him 'Pyro Man'?" Hmm, I forget that not everyone knows the story, but I'll give you the short and sweet version. My family has always had a tendency to nick-name people, especially when it comes to the boys Big Sister and I dated. Most of them were affectionate names like Schweet William. Some pertained to either where I saw the boy like Hot Gym Guy or Laundry Boy and then there were some that flat out marked how they look, Red Head Boy. Of course there are a few not so affectionate or nice names we'll leave off here.

Anyway, during Mary Kay last summer, I happened to notice there was a particularly cute pyrotechnician working that summer. Thus, the name "Pyro Man," was bestowed upon him. It's funny really because some of the girls who were in the show with me still refer to him as that!

So, it was a blissful weekend of getting to spend time with him. Six weeks is a long time to go without seeing your beau. I'm just saying. But I'll get to see him in a couple more when the show opens!

We ran around town on Saturday before seeing Light in the Piazza.

It was fabulous! I love seeing all the talent OCU has here on campus. Broadway quality performers I get to see for a song of a ticket price! Glorious!

Got to go have drinks at my favorite lounge, The Red Piano, with the MFA ladies. So much fun! The Red Piano a great piano bar with live jazz music and its located in the Skirvin Hotel downtown. Just beautiful! Great swanky lounge for a Saturday night! Now that I think of it, I'm kinda sad I didn't take pictures with my friends or Pyro Man. Dang.

Oh well. I did receive some exciting news! My friend and fellow MFA-er, Megan, got engaged! On Friday, she was celebrating her five year anniversary with her now fiancee, Tyler, when he surprised her by popping the question! Best wishes to you both!

Three more weeks until the show opens! We're officially finished with setting choreography--YAY! I have a second Look-see on Wednesday. This is where the committee sees it all from start to finish. I'm excited to see if up on it's feet as a whole production tonight when we start running it.

Mom is back in town for round two. We've got costumes and props busting out of the seams and so many little details to take care of--sometimes it's the little things that become the most work. That's OK though because I only have THREE MORE WEEKS left until the production goes up. I can do it. And I plan on rewarding myself with peanut butter and a shopping trip when it's over. Now that's something to work towards.

Happy Monday, everyone!
