And just like that......


The play is over.

This has been a long road for me.

Lots of laughing and lots of crying in my car on the way home from rehearsals.

I am grateful I had the opportunity to be in "Hairspray" and so grateful for the friends I made like:

Shana
Who came early to help her dance challenged counterpart and never complained

Cami
Who always told me I was doing good and laughed at my jokes

Nicole
Who helped with the most stressful part of my night...the mic

Brady
Who made me laugh every night right before the curtain came up

Cameron
Who was saddled with a "newbie" and was ever patient

Jenna
For laughing with me during you can't stop the beat

Tanner
For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine

Colton
For laughing so hard he cried when I told him my husband and I were having sex for my birthday

Jalene
For being so kind to me

Breezy
For giving me my one final terrifying moment on the bench

Mo
For putting my entire family under a love spell...they LOVE you

Aaron
For being the captain of this post

Krista
For buying Lady Marmalade

Britny
For just smiling and taking all of our teasing

Erin
For remembering that dancing was hard for me and telling me I was doing a great job. Hooper in the house.

Melinda
For showing me that me when I grow up I will be bitchin

Janzell
For telling me I am like Pam...wait....actually I hated that

Amanda
For "cut a bitch"

Mary Ann
For being a great mom who could have been in the council

Gray
For stealing the show every night

Jim
For giving me the chance

Jessica
For being a patient teacher

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST

Quacee
For really being my shoulder to cry on. For being there through thick and thin and showing me the true meaning of teamwork. Ahhhh the laughs we had. Like remember that one time in the green room when we were all talking and stuff and you said that one funny thing? Priceless. I will miss you most of all.

I will miss you all.

Thank you for all you did.

when i was growing up, my whole family was involved with a local theater. i LOVED it. the last show was always such a waterfall of tears. i remember SOBBING during the last song and curtain call. my friends and i would just cry, right there on stage... we could barely sing. and then backstage... forget about it. it was just a sob fest.

so, i feel your pain. it's hard to finish something like that...

The play is OVER!!!

Dear hairsprayers,

Thanks for taking care of my bestie for the last four months... we promise to keep the friendship alive... we'll come see you in annie. BUT. The play is OVER and my bestie is mine again. when we spend the equivalent hours of four months of rehersal and show time at nordstrom and downtown restaurants in, maybe I'll let her do another show.

Wait a minute. No I won't.

Thaaanks,

Bestie miss.
