Way More Fun Than a Black Eye

First, thank you all so much for your sweet
comments and prayers on my last post re my black eye.
It's improving, though still very colorful.
You could even call it seasonal with purple, green 
and  yellow tones!
Hoping it will be totally gone in a couple more weeks!
Anywhooo -- on to more fun topics!

Waiting for the performance to begin -- when did she get so grown up?
Earlier in the year, I heard that Idina Menzel (of Rent, Wicked and 
Frozen fame) would be in town giving a performance at our 
city's performing arts center.
I checked with Maddy and she was a definite YES 
when I asked if we should get tickets!

The concert was last Friday night
and . . . 
Idina (yes, we are on a first name basis!) was fabulous!!
She was so very good even though she had a cold and
had to clear her throat a couple times.  

Oh my word -- what an incredible voice!
She really bonded with and engaged the audience and was simply terrific!
Our seats were in the 3rd row -- totally awesome!!
Maddy was a little worried about what Idina might
think of my black eye, but I don't think she even noticed it.
It was really a great concert and wonderful Mom/Daughter
We love you Idina!

I'm so jealous!!! I absolutely adore her and would love to see her in concert. I have to check to see if she is coming to Boston. Your little girl is turning into a beautiful young lady. Her smile is contagious. Sounds like the bruising is getting better. It just seems like it takes forever. Have a great week.
