The Lion King!

Yesterday Brandon and I got to get away and went and watched the broadway "The Lion King" at ASU's Gammage Auditorium. This was the second time I have seen it, but Brandon's first. If you ever have the opportunity to partake of this AMAZING show...don't pass it up. The costumes are absolutely amazing and of course the singing was inspirational. I LOVE music, I LOVE broadways, and I LOVE that I have a husband who enjoys it too. We of course went coupon shopping too and ate at one of my favorite old people's resturants, Marie Calendars. Thanks honey for the awesome get away and for being spontaneous with me (since I bought our tickets Friday).
And a BIG FAT THANK YOU to my awesome, beautiful, talented niece MARYSSA! How many 13 year olds do you know who can babysit 10 kids ALL day and still get the dishes done, kids bathed, the floors vacuumed, and the kitchen swept and mopped? Thanks for being our nanny!! You're the BEST!!! And Morgon loves his Ryssa...you're his 'best friend':0)

Ok, I want a Maryssa!!! I only have three and my sitters cant seem to get diapers changed, let alone pick up a toy! No fair. We went to see Lion King in Cali many many moons ago, what an incredible show, we LOVED it! Youre such a lucky woman to have your hubby take you coupon shopping too!!
