Well hello Dear Chickens and welcome to this glorious New Year! Am I right?
Ours started off with such an amazing surprise-we got to go to the Rose Bowl! Due to the amazing generosity of a Spartan alumni family I helped set-up a birthday party for at the restaurant I work at on a day we were closed this family offered Joe & I two free tickets to The Rose Bowl to see our Spartans triumph against Stanford. It was the MOST amazing day and such a once in a lifetime opportunity for us. We sat in the 4th row on the 45 Yard Line. I was maybe ten steps from the field. I was behind the Spartan bench, could see every play in front of me (no need for the big screen or binoculars), the band played right to us, we met Rich Homie Quan (he's apparently a big rapper, I'm too old to know who this was I guess), and we sat in front of the President of the university and the Board of Trustees-it was CRAZY & PHENOMENAL. I cannot stress how amazing this all was and how thankful we were and are to have been there. It was such a great start to our year!
Such an awesome and amazing and perfect day! 2014 is continuing to be pretty glorious as our Lil' Dude is going to be here soon. We've packed our hospital bags, installed our car seat, have the apartment pretty much set-up for him, are making meals to freeze for postpartum, ordered the breast pump through the insurance, are doing our diaper service set-up & demo tomorrow, have someone on-call to watch our beloved pups, and are just waiting for our guy to arrive! We had a bit of drama with the insurances switching but my new insurance through Blue Shield & Covered CA has agreed to cover Cedars Sinai for me which is where I am set to deliver so that was a HUGE load off of us. Now we're just waiting for Lil' Dude to want some more space and come out to meet us!
My sketch show also opened which is very exciting. We are playing every Monday night at 7pm until the end of February at The Second City Hollywood. Tickets are $10 ($1 for current Second City students, Free for those in the Industry with a business card). Check us out if you are in L.A. the eight of us in the show wrote it, produced it, and are starring in it. Me, My Selfie, & I is such fun and I am so excited for this final capstone on my Conservatory Program at Second City. Please come see me be a dork on stage!
So far that's what's been happening this month. Pretty great kick-off to 2014. Cannot wait for all that this year has in store & cannot wait to meet our Lil' Dude soon! Take care dearest Chickens.
