Peter and the Starcatcher

On Black Friday hubs and I had our season tickets to see Peter and the Starcatcher after I finished work. Unfortunately due to some food poisoning which was probably from the sliders a food truck near work were giving away for free we weren't able to go. But thanks to the very kind people at SHN we were able to reschedule our show for matinee on Saturday. In hindsight we probably should've chosen the evening show on Saturday as the matinee was plagued with children who like to kick the seats in front of them.

The show is based on the book, which is a prequel to the Peter Pan story. Everything about this play is minimalist from the set and props are minimal as they invite you to use your imagination and the small cast that of people playing multiple characters. With that being said they do an amazing job using what few props and costumes they have to create an amazing story.

Although this is primarily a very kid-oriented play there were a lot of very adult jokes that had us lol-ing. Disney has put their name on a lot of different musicals, but this is probably the most grown-up friendly one we've seen so far. Highly recommend!

Stella & Dot Trunk Show

Last weekend a friend and I hosted a Stella & Dot trunk show at my house. I had been trolling their website and adding item and after item to my wish list. While trolling the website I saw that you can host a trunk show and I thought it'd be a great excuse to get some friends and family together and maybe help people get some things checked off their Christmas list. It was so much fun to just hang out and try on all kinds of different jewelry while sipping on some champagne (of course).

The products our stylist brought to the trunk show were absolutely beautiful. There were a lot of jewelry pieces that I remember being unimpressed with in the catalog that really won me over in person. Their handbags impressed me and were surprisingly high in quality. And their scarves...oh their big and soft! I must say after seeing all those items in person I have a lot more things added to my wish list.
