February Celebrations

I had a very fun Birthday! Celebrated with a delicious home cooked breakfast and then later a fabulous dinner at The Melting Pot. For my birthday cake, my amazing mother made a “camera” cake. Isn’t she just brilliant?!

Now I’m not a sports person at all really, but of course my fam has to have a fantastic Superbowl Feast! So we ate our deliciousness and watched the commercials. Nikki also brought over just a few brands from her Root Beer collection. As an MT, my comments for the Superbowl were 1) Christina was good but Shoshana could take her any day and 2) What was up with Lea? I know I’m not a fan, but she seriously sounded like she had a frog in her throat. Here’s the food pics:

And of course their was Valentines Day filled with love and sweets in the Cannon household!

Happy February!!

Things I’m Thinking

-Some people just don’t know when to stop.

-I’ve found myself in the midst of grumpy people lately. I try to be extra happy but it seems to make the room sadder… Lighten up people.

-I’m on a major blog high. Can’t get enough of Apartment 34, Design Love Fest, my Lens of Love… there are so many brilliant people in this world!

-It feels good to be at the studio again. Different but the same.

-I REALLY need to do a photoshoot. ASAP.

-Anxiously awaiting Valentines Day. Anthropologie’s Wedding Line is being released. Dream come true! (I’m a huge wedding geek…)

-As of this very moment: New York= 30 degrees, Houston=59 degrees. Jealous, slushy New York???

-What was my life like without Ashley Van Pelt? I don’t remember.

-If you slur the words, “It’s Alright” so that it said, “S’alright,” it sounds like “Sorry.”

-I love my family so so much. I must say, I love living with my bro-in-law, Ryan. I never had brothers, so its fun to have some brotherly teasing. He gives the best advice and always provides great conversation. He and Nat are the cutest couple and I love seeing them all the time!!

-Been home for a week now and do you think I’ve emptied my suitcases? Probably should get on that…

-I’m about to turn 19? This year has certainly flown.

-Isn’t this photo just stunning:

have a great week!

Invited Dress

Last night was our Invited Dress Rehearsal where we could invite family and friends to come see the show so that we could adjust to having an audience. It was so thrilling to look out and see an audience. I kept thinking to myself, “I can’t believe this is real.”

I was so lucky to have Annie, Jason, Johanna, Eric, and Jennifer there supporting me. I love them so much!

One more final dress rehearsal tonight and then our first show is tomorrow!!!!

Mom and Nat are arriving today!

Yah!!

Survived Tech!

Had an amazing week of tech! What a thrill it is to perform on the Great Stage. I started crying during the first time we did the shine kick line with music on stage. It’s the most incredible feeling to look out into that house with the lights shining up from the ground and see your legs kicking alongside the world’s famous kicking legs and realize, “Wow! This is real! Dreams do come come true.”

Tomorrow starts our first round of dress rehearsals. Can’t wait to get the costumes on and add that whole dimension to the show. First show is Friday!!! Mom and Nat get here on Thursday. It’s going to be an amazing week!
