a little girls getaway with my mom!
We are headed South! Hopefully the weather is nice, because I have a few fun things planned (Besides walking and lounging on the beach!)

  • Brookgreen Gardens                     
  • Shrimping and Dolphin Adventure Cruise   shrimping aboard a 90 foot cruise                                                                             Imagine this: our 90-foot cruise boat pulls right along side a working shrimp boat and our knowledgeable guide explains shrimping as the passengers watch the fishermen harvest the delicacies.   Dolphins and possibly shark feed off the “by-catches” from the shrimping nets, their presence is felt as they jump along side the boat.  Watch as the live catch – including shrimp, crabs, sand dollars, star fish, sea urchins, and other marine life that has ventured into the nets – scuttle about the deck. The astonishing variety of creatures that live under the sea is spread out to be observed at close range.  The shrimp boat is actually owned by the same company that owns our boat.  This is a unique opportunity to not only enjoy a short cruise but to learn about our shrimping industry, close up.  


my alone time

Living alone is no longer a cliche.  It can be empowering :). Read the article.  Do you enjoy living alone? Or would you?


Dirty Dancing LIVE

(FYI this show is NOT at the Kimmel Center, like I thought.  We were redirected to the Academy of Music a few blocks down)
Wow. This show was fabulous! Like most women my age, I grew up watching this OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. Yup, I too, know all the words, all the scenes all the details…

So for me, this show was probably one of the BEST I have ever seen.
The cast was SO talented. It was extremely believable that I was watching the MOVIE and not at a live show. The cast were great replicas, even their voices sounds the same.

They creatively reproduced many favorite scenes (“I carried a watermelon”, “But most of all I am scared of leaving this room and never feeling the way I do when I’m with you……(Cue sex scene (which was done tastefully!) and of course “No body puts baby in the corner”

The dancing was beautiful, breathtaking and intriguing! Mom and I were both shaking and practically hopping out of our seats to join them on stage……..if it was not for our 1,000 foot drop from our Amphitheater seating…..that was the ONLY downfall to the show.

Never again will I get the Amphitheater seats 😦  IT was not only a terrible view, BUT it was scary! We were so high up, the seats were super cramped, and it nearly gave us a heart attack walking down (and up) the narrow almost non existent scary steps! YIKES)

If it were not for the show, I probably would have left at intermission due to the seating, BUT however the fact that it was INDEED Dirty Dancing, I had no desire to go anywhere. I would risked being scared and cramped to see “No body puts baby in the corner”

I am glad it did. The ending was amazing. I have a a true desire to go out and take some dancing lessons. After all, “Baby” was able to look like a pro in a week……maybe i can too??? 🙂
