you are more than what you have become, you must take your place in the circle of life

This month has been full of lovey dovey activities, but what can I say, it's the Valentines Day spirit, not to mention it was Mike and I's year and a half anniversary, so we went all out. 

My sister bought Mike and I a groupon for my birthday for a couples dance lesson, and it is one of my new favorite gifts I have ever received. We had two lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studio on the Upper East Side, where we successfully learned how to Rumba, Tango, Waltz, Swing Dance, and Foxtrot (possible videos to follow...). 

We also celebrated Valentines Day by going to Target (it's the little things) and a movie theater where they also serve dinner called the Alamo Drafthouse, where we saw La La Land (my new favorite movie of all time!) and had some delicious dinner.

We also had a purchased a groupon for a place in Queens called Spa Castle, where I did not take any pictures because it was a four story building full of hot tubs and saunas, so thank you Google images. 

Valentines Day wasn't spent all day with my valentine though, I also had a lovely galentines day brunch hosted by the ever wonderful Jill (and her precious pup, Lillie).

It was so fun getting to know lots of other new friends that are also in this crazy industry, and I was very fortunate to get to be a part of the love. 

Speaking of this crazy industry, auditions have picked up pace a little bit, and I often find myself waking up at the crack of dawn to stand in a line outside for hours to hopefully be typed in to an audition.

I have gone to about 15 auditions in the last month, some including the Cinderella Non-Equity National Tour, Fireside Theater, Lake Dillion Theater Company, St. Louis Stages Theater, Ongonquit Playhouse, and Prather Entertainment Group. I understand why they say you will hear "no" 1,000 times before you hear a yes now because that is all I have been hearing. Keeping my chin up though while working on The Little Mermaid, which opens on Sunday in Greenwich Village!

Here is a little costume sneak peek, however, sadly I am not the one who gets to wear these awesome pants...but I love them.

We had a little cast bonding the other day when we realized the new cookie dough place that everyone is hyping up on the internet called ! is only two streets over from our theater. We waited in line for about an hour and a half, but it was totally worth it.

so many delicious flavors!

finally inside

It was a total sugar rush, and I couldn't finish all my cookie dough, but I would 100% go there again. 

I am not going to lie, it has been kind of difficult to juggle auditioning, show rehearsal, spending time with Mike, and finding time to work. At Kids Club, I was sought out to train as a Special Events Team Manager, which basically means I get to lead birthday parties, pj parties, and other events held at the various company locations. This is something I have wanted since starting with the company in August, so I was pretty excited about it...even when you have to trudge through the 7 feet of snow to get there...

But don't worry, because about a week after these photos were taken, Mike and I spent all morning outdoors at Prospect Park playing with his camera without coats on because it was about 61 degrees.

Another tick off our bucket list was finally winning the lottery to the Lion King, which we have literally entered everyday that we could since we moved here. It may have been only because superbowl Sunday, that we won, and we may have been in the very, very last row, but this show was incredible!

yay last row

 We were also fortunate enough to meet up with one of my fellow Hong Kong Dinsey family members, Michael who was starring in the male ensemble and brought us backstage for the grand tour. Seeing the puppets and the costumes used for the show was the most amazing thing, as was standing on that stage looking out into the audience.

Another bucket list item we achieved, that was a little less happy, but still engaging, was visiting the 9/11 memorial museum. The museum is incredibly moving, but very difficult to walk through thinking about it all happening right there.

Slowly our NYC bucket list is getting smaller as we adventure and tour the city. If you have anything you think we should add to it, let me know and we will check it out!
