Little Letters

It’s been a year since my last Little Letters so I thought it was about time to bring it back!

Dear New York, though I will be leaving you for a while soon, I’ll miss you. I won’t miss the winter though.

Dear Houston, it’s amazing how often I find myself missing you.

Dear Michael Tapley, thank you for being the absolute perfect mentor for me. I couldn’t be more excited to share the stage with you in WC!

Dear Mom, I cannot put into words how much I love you. Thank you for always being there to listen, talk, comfort, encourage, and direct me.

Dear Internet, you rock. It’s because of you I can sit in my living room and watch General Conference.

Dear clouds, I’m in love with your always changing patterns. I love the light rays and the silver linings you create. You are stunning.

Dear pasta, thank you for being yummy and easy to make. Maybe one of these days I’ll learn to cook something else.

Dear me, get your butt into a ballet class this week!

Dear Fall, you are my favorite. I love seeing the leaves change colors.

Dear Radio City, I’m not going to lie… I do miss you. And it is hard sometimes. But I’m forever grateful to everything that you taught me. I was extremely lucky to have you as my first professional job. I’m grateful for the friendships I gained and the lessons I learned.

Dear Itunes, get ready to put the White Christmas album on repeat!!!

Dear President Monson, you are the best storyteller. Oh how I’ve enjoyed listening to you this Conference weekend.

Dear you, I need a new book to read. Got any suggestions?

Happy Sunday! I’m so enjoying the talks being spoken in General Conference. Looking forward to everything I’ve got going on this week.

Pizza Dinner with my fab Rox

Where: Vyne Wine Bar NYC

With Who: The 301 Rockstars and Rangers

What was eaten: Some very delicious pizzas

Met with some of my lovely Rockette friends last week for pizza (and for them drinks!) I almost did not go… Well I might as well publicly announce this- I didn’t get my job back and I will not be returning to the Christmas Spectacular this season. It’s a bummer but I know that everything happens for a reason. After doing Urban Cowboy this summer, I just know that musical theatre is my true passion. I love Rockettes with all my heart and maybe will return someday to it, but for now I’m positive that there is some other road for me to find.

I love these ladies so much. During the season they were my family. Even though I was the baby of the group, they took me under their wing and treated me as an equal. It’s amazing how much they taught me about how to be a woman.

Once a Rockette always a Rockette!

I am currently…

…being really lazy. And it feels great.

…looking forward to going home to Houston. Ok, I said it! Fam, friends, Tokyo Bowl, dogs, Rafa… need I say more?

…enjoying spending time with my bestie here in the city.

…prepping to make my move to the heights!

…really missing my RCMH fam. It’s been a week…

…in need of groceries.

…staring at the window. More snow!

…a bookworm. I’m reading so much these days and love it!

…in denial that it’s 2011.

…listening to Jonathan Reid Gealt’s “Quiet” by Natalie Weiss. Buy it! Incredible song. Jonathan is such a talented song writer and Natalie Weiss is just a stunning songstress.

…enjoying my last month of Netflix.

…getting ready to do some major cleaning in my apartment.

…wishing my entire wardrobe was 1930’s-1950’s clothing.

…wondering what 2011 is going to bring.

Happy December!

Opening Night!

Last night was our official opening night at Radio City and it was spectacular!

It was so awesome to have my mom and Kevin in the audience cheering me on.

I love the 301 Rockstars. We’re so awesome! Sharing a dressing room with them is the best!

I’m beyond excited to have the show up and running. I love my job and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a famous line of women!

(I’m second from the left on the second row!)
