Well here we are at my last blog entry! This month went by unbelievably fast! The past few days have just been business as usually. I spent them running around to voice lessons, acting class rehearsals and understudy rehearsal.

Saturday was quite an eventful day at "Nice Work"! I walked into the girls' dressing room to what looked like Christmas morning. Kelli O'Hara brought up a giant bag filled with dresses she didn't want anymore. We had a ball trying on all the clothes and almost everyone ended up bringing something home!

Wednesday I got to midtown for my matinee a little early and decided to go visit my mom at work. I walked up to window 9 at TKTS and waved "hi". Yup, TKTS is my Mom's office! I swear it's totally unrelated to the fact that I do what I do. She's a main reason why we are selling so well. Just kidding, TKTS employees aren't allowed to promote or recommend specific shows, but their kids can! Every time I visit my Mom at work I inevitably turn into a crazy person, butting into people's conversations and shouting at tourists about how they should DEFIINITELY go see "Nice Work". However, I am learning to control myself, and I am proud to report I didn't harass any theatergoers this recent visit.

Saturday was our two show day. Before I went to work, I hung out with my friend Natalie Hall who was in from LA staying with me for the week. She, and the emerging star of this blog, my roommate's dog Radley, formed quite a friendship over the course of the week. Every morning I would peer into the living room to see Radley claiming his space on top of a snoozing Natalie.

Wednesday was a pretty typical two show day. My boyfriend, Dominic, asked me to stop by his office in midtown to see him after the matinee, so that's what I did. When I got there I noticed he was holding a bag from a local store at Penn State. Turns out he ordered me a new PSU tshirt! It was an extra thoughtful gift because they are only selling this style in State College right now. Bet you can guess what I'll be wearing this Saturday!

Friday night after the show I walked down the street to Evita and met up with my friend, Erica Mansfield. We hopped into a cab and made our way east to Biblioteca to grab a drink in honor, Evan, Julie Kotaride's fiance's, 30th birthday. Birthday cheer and margaritas hit the spot.

Wednesday started as a grey, rainy daywhich meant I got to wear my new rain boots! It's the little things in life right? I LOVE them! They are Tretorn, light weight and lined with furry material (so comfy!).

September 5, 2012
Fall is my favorite season hands down, but before we are filled to the brim with candy corn, apples, pumpkin lattes and (in my case) birthday cake (Oct 9th is my bday!) I figured I would take this entry to reflect on what an outrageously special and exciting summer it's been!
