A Little Bit 'Wicked'

It has been so long since I've blogged! So much has been happening around here for our family. Our 'Big Things' that are happening are probably not such a huge deal to you all but, for us, they are ginormous! They are still not ready to be posted about so, I'll move forward with what was the most amazing show I have seen in a long time!

'The Mom' surprised me on my thirtieth (ugh) birthday with tickets to see Wicked in San Diego. This weekend, the two of us (yes, just the two of us) drove down to the Gaslamp District to see the show and for a bit of shopping and relaxing.

We arrived at the Hilton in Gaslamp (such a nice hotel) around 1 pm. We walked around Downtown and browsed in the fun shops in the 90 (yes, 90) degree weather. We went to a yummy Mexican restaurant for dinner where I had the tastiest maggy and then we were off to the theater.

Can I just say, I was very excited to see this musical being that I was one of the last people to see it. I haven't been to a musical like this since I saw Le Miserables in NYC when I was 21. The only musical I have seen in between the two was Mama Mia and that hardly compares to the brilliance that are these two.

Wicked is brilliant! I adored the story, was moved by the music, and walked out of the theater changed. Wouldn't it be lovely if we could all be just a little less Wicked and a little more Elphaba- I mean good.
