January 5, 2012


I'm just so thrilled that Shannon and I saw Les Miz last night - in IMAX no less (so worth it)! There were lots of tears and we had a wonderful time. I couldn't believe how the words were right at the tip of my tongue from beginning to end. It's amazing to think of how long this story and these songs have been with us!


Yep, yesterday was all about Les Miz. I was so amazing to see, especially because although I know the words by heart, I didn't know all the stories so getting to see it was both nostalgic and a new experience. And seeing it in IMAX was amazing; thanks Jamie for swapping our seats to where it felt like it was *just us* in the theatre, with Suzie in spirit too. So powerful. And teary!


I have been waking up in the morning obsessing about making this chocolate chip cookie pendant scented with vanilla oil. Don't ask me why. I saw a tutorial on it and just had to have one so I could wear it. I finally had a little energy and baked it in my toaster oven in my crafts room and love how it turned out. It's still all shiny in this photo from the oil but it seeped in. I glued a bail to it (to hang it from) so it should be good to wear today. I really thought my creative juices were gone for this kind of thing so I am so happy to have made this for so many reasons.

Les Miz was just amazing. And I have been thinking about what a unique experience that must have been, Shannon, to be able to sing along while watching the story unfold before you. Amazing.

Suzie, that cookie is so cute!! That's amazing when inspiration takes hold of us like that. Yay to following the energy! I hope you enjoy wearing your vanilla-scented cookie!

It was so amazing to see it that way! I keep wondering if I'll try and review it but I'm not convinced I could do so without crying!

I love that cookie Suzie! It looks so real, I thought it was totally going to be about a new recipe. I'm happy it called itself to you and that you made it! Woohoo!

Oh how I envy you both! But I am so happy for you and going to IMAX was doing Les Miz right.

LOL, wow, I am glad the cookie pendant looked that real Shannon. Yes, I hope the energy comes back Jamie. Sadly my health took a nosedive this weekend.

I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired!
