Weekend Recap: Friday’s Fun

Weekend Recap: Friday’s Fun

I am splitting up the weekend recap into two parts since we had a GLORIOUS weekend.
For starters, after work I headed to the gym.  This picture is blurry, but I wanted to document it.  I did 5 miles on the bike and FINALLY managed to keep my average RPMs over 100!  Hello fast legs! 🙂
After the gym, I got ready and met the family downtown at Bravo.  We enjoyed a nice dinner together…and then Tyler headed home while me, mom, dad, and Gram went to the performing arts center.
After a slight debacle with Gram’s wheelchair (WHY is it so hard for places to be accessible?!)…we got settled into our seats just minutes before the show.
We were seeing the AMAZING Audra McDonald. You might know her as Naomi Bennet from Private Practice, but I know her as an amazing broadway singer.  She put on an intimate concert here in Fort Smith…and I HAD to go.
Y’all.  She was amazing.  The first note took my breath away.  She sang mostly obscure broadway songs, because she doesn’t like being mainstream….but more than that, the show was just wonderful.  She was funny, heartfelt, and so genuine.  Her encore was “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess….and I had been waiting ALL night for that!  I may have teared up a little during that and “Moonshine Lullaby” from Annie Get Your Gun.  SO great.
We left the show, came home, loaded up the car….and headed to Branson!  More on that tomorrow!
