I’m hoping to make this a weekly thing. It’ll probably be a hodge-podge (my favorite coffee house in Atlanta) of completely unrelated things.

  1. Hamilton the new Broadway musical. I bet I won’t see it until it tours, but I’m listening to the soundtrack on repeat at all times. It is SO AMAZING. I love everything about this cast recording. I love that our very white founding fathers and the history we’ve been taught is performed by an amazing and talented cast of People of Color. I think it’s truly just perfect and I think come Tony season this is the only musical we will be hearing about.
  2. Spring Awakening- I’m only seeing clips of this, because to get the full effect of this revival you need to see it. It’s a combination performance of abled bodied and disabled artists. The lines and songs are all signed and it’s really just fantastic. 
  3. Converse II. Anyone who knows me personally knows that I have a deep and longstanding love with Converse. I have always loved the Chuck Taylors and when I found out they were coming out with a new version I knew I had to have them. Nordstorms sells me shoes through the single shoe program, but these are new enough that they aren’t there yet. So, I contacted Converse directly. They couldn’t sell me just one shoe, but they did give me a discount on a new pair. They are super comfortable and I love them already.

    New Converse II. Know anyone that needs a left shoe?

  4. I ordered patio furniture for our little sun porch a month ago. Then we spent a month talking about how we needed to clean off the porch so we could set up our patio furniture. Yesterday I took it upon myself to do just this (with the help of Oldest who begrudgingly took some things to the basement. I then spent quite a few hours setting it up. My theater degree always comes in handy when furniture together with a hex key.

    New patio furniture. Not pictured, new calluses on my fingers from tightening bolts. Also not pictured my angry face when trying to put the couch together.

  5. I’m reading Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. I am slowly devouring this book. I don’t want it to end. I don’t want to finish it. I love everything about it. I wanted to underline the entirety of chapter 12. As someone who isn’t classically beautiful. Who also did a beauty pageant (I wanted the scholarship (who am I kidding, I also wanted the crown)). This book is hitting all of my spots.

    Spoiler I won.

I haven’t finished the book yet (intentionally because I just want to hold onto every word) so I don’t know how her story ends, but I can’t wait to find out.
