Oh The Pure Palatable Joy!!!!!

Here are some hints about what I am doing tomorrow.

He was imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread.

He was forever changed by the grace shown by a single man..... ringing any bells???

He adopted a child from a worker who was died because she--- "Dreamed a Dream"--- any closer?

There was a young woman who was in love with a young man who felt "On My Own"-- come on-- this has to be giving it away.

But alas, this young man was in love with the young woman who the imprisoned- changed for good- man adopted. These young lovebirds had "A Heart Full of Love".

OK, OK, I will give it up!!!!

I am going to see my #1 favorite musical of all time


I cant wipe the smile off my face because in just 19 hours the curtain will be going up on my favorite musical at the Ahmnanson Theater in Los Angeles!!! I have literally seen it 10+ times. Kevin took me to see it when we were 17 as a surprise. One year during my college years, I saved up my $$ and got myself front row seats-- by myself because I could not afford a ticket for someone else- we were all poor- but it was the best birthday gift ever. Basically-- I LOVE LES MIS and know every word of the whole musical by heart and have sung every song hundreds of time-- just ask my parents- I would sing Les Mis 24/7 around the house to the point that they know all the music as well.

So you have the point that I am stoked!!! We are seeing the Saturday Matinee with my family- my parents, Brad and Amy and Cassie (Kev too) and then after the show we are going to our favorite restaurant in LA "
Bodega Louis" which is a new amazing hot spot. Our favorite musical and favorite restaurant-- the makings of a perfect night without the kids-- oh yaaaaa!!!!!! I will let you know how it goes!!!


  1. Christy,

    We saw Les Mis opening night and it was spectacular!! The costumes and sets were amazing. You will not be disappointed. We went to Bottega Louie for dinner beforehand. Be sure to get the portebello mushroom fries. Yum!!

  2. I feel the same way about Phantom of the Opera. Enjoy!


  3. Have a fantastic time! My most favorite book in my high school lit class. New it the moment you mentioned he was imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread!


  4. you are going to have an amazing time! yay!! sounds fantastic!

    And I LOVE your new blog look too!!!!!

  5. Sounds like a perfect night!! Have fun!!

    Love the new look and the amazing pics! I can't get over how much your boys look alike! They are all precious!

  6. Oh, my absolute favorite!!! I refused to see this anywhere but Broadway for the first time...finally made it in 1999 during a trip to New York. I just saw a Broadway Across America production last month...and drove my kids crazy listening to all the music in the weeks before and after. Have fun!

  7. LOVE Bodega Louis! Food is phenomenal, but a bit loud in you notice that? Seen Les Miz twice (realted by marriage to an Ahmnanson). Have fun.

  8. I am jealous of you! This is my fav too!
