What a Week!

On Sunday, I went to see Tony n' Tina's Wedding with my husband, parents, in-laws, and my in-laws' neighbors.  Truthfully, it's not the sort of show Glen or I would normally go to see, but the production that happened to be in town starred two of our friends from college, so we had to check it out.

Fun fact: These guys are married in real life, too.  Adorable, right?
On Monday night, I did the work thing during the day, went to band rehearsal at night.  We're playing more Broadway stuff than usual this season, which is exciting for me.  I love playing in pit bands, but I haven't done it in years.  Playing showtunes in concert band isn't quite the same, but in the meantime I'll take it. ;-)

Glen opened for Myq Kaplan at the Allentown Brew Works on Tuesday night, but first Myq stopped by our place to film a pre-taped segment for Glen's show, and I had to keep Elvis out of the den and reasonably quiet. 
We didn't get home until fairly late (for a work night, anyway), so Wednesday was a much-needed lazy day once I got home from work.  I managed to go to the gym, but after that I parked my butt in front of the TV for the night.  Did anyone catch the two-part interview Stephen Colbert did with Maurice Sendak?  Amazing.  Here's part one:

The part about In the Night Kitchen made me laugh so hard I cried!

Thursday was a library day (read: 12 hours at work, fun!), and I got my hair cut during lunch. While I was at the salon, I decided to pick up some new shampoo and conditioner:

I am seriously obsessed with this stuff. (The shampoo smells like grapefruit!)  I generally don't splurge on beauty products, but as of right now, shampoo/conditioner and mascara are exceptions.

Last night was another lazy evening (well, except for the 3 loads of laundry I did, but I had originally intended to clean the whole house!).  I made the mistake of drinking coffee before my 5-9 library shift the night before.  Big mistake.  I slept horribly and barely made it through the day at work.

On the bright side, I did come across this video on YouTube:

I read about this event awhile back, and lamented the fact that (a) I didn't know about it until after it happened and (b) it happened all the way on the other side of the country, so I couldn't have attended anyway.  Watching it on my computer was the next best thing, and it totally made my day. 

I'm hoping to use my little Before and After series as motivation to get at least one room in the house thoroughly cleaned this weekend.  In the meantime, I will leave you with this adorableness:

Elvis loves snugglin'!


  1. Aww that's cute that they are married in real life too. And I love your dog.

  2. whew you sure have been busy. Im gonna have to check out that Colbert interview. A couple of people have told me now that its really funny.

  3. Haha! We must be on the same wavelength as far as post titles.

    Thanks for the interview with Sendak that was quite hilarious. And oh my Pete and Pete! I just put this on our Netflix queue for my children to watch. I love this show! I can't wait to rewatch it.

  4. Wow what a week!! Sounds like you were able to get so much done!!
