Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

Tonight we're going to see "Rent" -- my all-time favorite musical -- with Christy and Stephen. I'm mucho excited. There's no other soundtrack that I can listen to over and over and over again.

Last year we saw "Cabaret" at this same theater and it was a big disappointment. Debbie Gibson was sick so her understudy replaced her and she wasn't very good. But even when things like that fall a little short of expectations, it's still fun to get dressed up and go out afterward.

We'll stay with Christy Christy tonight and then hope to finally meet Emma Hemphill tomorrow. I'm also going to take my Pottery Barn 10 percent off coupon and maybe we'll check out some beds and area rugs while we're close to a mall. Then we'll head back home tomorrow night for an engagement party Carrie and Jacob are throwing for Jordan and Mark.

By the way, anyone in our area should drop by the Lizzart open house Saturday morning. She's really talented and it's a great way to get a head start on holiday shopping. I hate that we're going to miss it (although our house already has the feel of a Lizzart gallery).

Finally, great good luck to the amazing Kaitlin, who's running the Richmond Marathon tomorrow!

I don't think I have one piece of Lizzart in my house. If I didn't have Joshua and Seth this weekend I would love to go to the open house.

Have SO MUCH FUN at Rent! It was great when it came to Charlotte last winter. (Except that the girl sitting beside me sang every word of every song in a really squeeky voice.) I love that we share a favorite musical.

Lots of love to Stephen, Christy, Maegan, Carrie & Jacob!

I share a favorite musical with you and "libba lemon" :) The last time it was in Raleigh I was lucky enough to sit in the front row and it was amazing! Wicked is in a very, very close second though. Glad you enjoyed it!
