This morning, I went to Starbucks and ordered my standard venti Pumpkin Spice Latte non fat no whip. (The baristas know me and my order. I have a Starbucks problem.)
I also ordered a venti black coffee to take to a friend.
My total rang up to be $7.77…my wedding date! Also three lucky sevens! I knew it was going to be a good day.
I drove the coffees to meet the costume designer for the show I’m doing. We had decided at last night’s run through that we needed to start from scratch. So, this morning, we played dress up for three hours, talking and creating a “look” for my character. I wish we could have played all day, but I had to pick up my son from pre-school. I am thrilled with what we came up with for the show. The setting is New York City in 1923….imagine sequins, feathers, fur and fringe. So much fun!
After getting my son home, my father-in-law and brother-in-law pitched in to help rake the leaves in our yard, and even started a fire in our outdoor fire pit. I can not tell you what a help this was. My husband is rarely around and when he is, the last thing he wants to do is rake leaves. (Which is a nice way of saying he won’t do yard work.) My yard has not looked this nice since my son’s 3rd birthday party, when we hired someone to come do it.
On a rare chance, my rehearsal was cancelled for the evening and my husband got off at four o’clock!
So, to celebrate, we headed to one of our favorite local restaurants for $2 burger night.
And the pictures we took with our photographer just got posted today. I am so pleased with them! Go check it out on my Facebook page.
All in all, this was a great way to start the week. Today was a very good day.
