Athleta Photo Contest

So most of you know that I love the clothing company Athleta.  It's my favorite for many reasons.
1.  It's top quality work out gear.  
2. They have the all time BEST customer service!
From everyday apparel to work my butt off apparel.
When I saw that they were having a photo contest I had to send in a shot!  

The lucky winner gets to work with Athleta's style team to choose a work out top and bottom for any activity of her choice to suit her personal style AND gets a to-fro outfit for free (transition from workout to out and about outfit!)!  HOW COOL IS THIS!  Will you vote for me?  Please.  Alls you have to do is, click here, leave a super cool amazing comment, and you're done.  The top ten people with the highest votes by May 4th will then get judged by a panel of Athleta judges and a winner will be announced on the May 11th!  Thanks friends!  I really appreciate your support!

Billy Elliot

Friday night Michelle (my sister) and I went to The Paramount in Seattle, WA to watch Billy Elliot!  I laughed, cried, gasped, and felt exhilarated!  The talent on the stage was absolutely amazing, brilliant, and I wanted an ENCORE! ENCORE! ENCORE!  There are four Billy Elliot's touring.  Friday night we had Lex Ishimoto and he blew me away!!!  His talent was beyond my comprehension and at such a young age.  I was truly inspired.
After the show, Jeff Kready, who played Tony (Billy's brother), let us go on the stage and back stage!! WOW, what a treat!  Jeff is a friend of my friend Alisa Lybbert, who I met in Skagway. It's unreal how small the stage really is.  It appears so big when you are in the audience, but it's much smaller in real life.  The mechanics of back stage are so complicated as well.  Jeff talked to us about how things are built at an angle to create dimensions and objects to appear bigger, etc...  He showed us the props, and explained to us how quick things are put away during and after a show.  It was a great theater lesson.

It was a wonderful last night in Seattle.  I am now in Ketchikan and on my way to Skagway on Tuesday. waaa waaa! But I am in and out all summer so it will go by super fast!  YEAH!! xo
