The One Where We Sing Mamma Mia!

Hello friends!

This morning was a lazy morning which turned into a lazy afternoon!  I worked on my scrapbook for a long time and took a short nap before I had to....get ready for MAMMA MIA!!

Tonight my mom, my Aunt Diane, and myself went out to dinner and to a play.  We ate dinner at a restaurant called "Sweet T's".  Dan Morgan (one of the panther's) owns a whole bunch of restaurants and this is one of the new ones.  It has a lot of good, southern cooking and it was delish!  I had a cheeseburger and some fries and it literally tasted like a home-made hamburger!  Not something just slapped on a cheapo-grill at some places.  Here is a picture of us at dinner!  That's me by the window, my aunt next to me, and my mom on the end!

Y'all.  I love, LOVE the movie Mamma Mia.  So I was a little worried that I wasn't going to enjoy the play as much.  Don't get me wrong, I also love plays- my favorites are Annie Get Your Gun and Cats.  Anyway, I was a little worried that it might not be as good.  But it was.  Oh boy was it good.  I don't think it was better then the movie but it was FAN-TAST-IC.  The characters were well played, Sophie was precious and the audience was just riveted.  Some people were singing and some people clapped along....and everyone applauded after every. single. song.  I kid you not.  There was applause after every song, but you know what?  They deserved it!  They did an amazing job!  If you've ever seen the movie, at the end the 3 main women and the 3 main guys (the fathers) come out dressed in spandex dance outfits and sing a couple songs.  THEY DID THIS.  They actually dressed up and danced these little numbers in these huge platform shoes and spandex outfits!  It was outrageous:)  The only bummer about the night was during this last performance, one of the main guys busted pretty hard during the dance, stood up, and limped off the stage- and wham bam, on came is under study.  (who was by no means anywhere as enthusiastic as the main guy!)  We think he's okay, probably just a twisted ankle, but it kind of stunk for the poor guy.  

Anyway, I totally recommend seeing the play if you love the movie.  And maybe even get your guy to watch it!!  David was pretty adamant about not watching the movie until I MADE him watch it with me, and when he found out I was going to the play tonight he said, "yeah....I liked that movie!"

Hey, that's enough for me:)  Goodnight y'all!

Oh P.S.- BRACES OFF AT 7:30 AM!!!  By the time you wake up, I'll no longer be a brace-face...yahhoooooo!!! :)
