What I’m Looking Forward To This Year

Today’s Challenge prompt makes me think of all the places I want to go. I logged into TripIt yesterday and saw that screen. It’s been such a long time since I didn’t have a trip on the horizon. So of course, I started planning! Continue reading


Happiness Is…

Today’s prompt is “Happiness Is” and my first thought was that I could finally finish this draft of a post about my visit to Neverland with my mom back in January. There’s a lot of ways I could answer that prompt (watching the sunset over the ocean, a really good hug, when the Giants win the World Series), but watching Matthew Morrison sing and dance his heart out from the front row is up there.

A Night with Matthew Morrison: “Finding Neverland” preview (March 18, 2015)

It’s been six weeks since I experienced Neverland, so I guess it’s time I finally tell you all about it!

A couple months ago, I realized that the first week of previews for Finding Neverland coincided with Spring Break at work, so I made a decision to fly out to New York for a few days to see the show and finally hear Matthew Morrison sing live. I was a little disappointed that no one was able to come with me, but it did enable me to buy a 3rd row ticket, so I couldn’t be too mad! Continue reading

What to Expect

The blog has been neglected for a while now and I have a bunch of half-done posts in the “draft” bin, but instead of dusting any of them off, I’m going in a completely different direction.

Movieline posted the New What To Expect When You’re Expecting Poster and they are right when they say it’s terrible. I’ve wondered often since I first heard about this project how (and WHY?!) they were going to adapt a pregnancy manual into a movie, but apparently, they think if they put enough celebrities in it, this thing will be Love Actually, Part Two. But the reason this movie is on my radar screen at all is that Matthew Morrison is playing one of the (hapless) fathers (coupled up with Cameron Diaz, no less). Of course, my infatuation with him has faded a bit, so unlike in the Krasinski-era, I will NOT be seeing this monstrosity in the theaters.

However, looking at the new poster, I was a bit intrigued to see that Matthew isn’t featured. The top half of the poster has five of the mothers (including Diaz), but the bottom half only has four fathers. Thomas Lennon (who I love) is featured on the far left, but doesn’t get an above-the-title credit. Matthew gets the credit, but not the photo. At first I was offended on his behalf (it’s a hard habit to break), but the more I thought about it, perhaps he’s the luckiest one of all.
