week's end.

Oh man, I am really ready for the weekend. What are your plans? We don't have all that much scheduled. We are, of course, going to MK's spinning class tomorrow and a long training run on Sunday morning. And we'll be watching the Final Four games tomorrow night and going to dinner up at my brother's in-law's house in Orinda on Sunday night. A nice and casual spring weekend...hope that you have something good planned!

And, for your weekend reading, here are some links of interest...

For Christmas, I got Ben tickets to Hamilton through a special Facebook offer and we went this past week! Full disclosure, I figured it would be entertaining enough, but was skeptical it would live up to all the hype. But wow. I was wrong. So very wrong.

Hamilton was brilliant. It lived up to and exceeded everything I had heard. Lin-Manuel Miranda is our modern Shakespeare, not to mention the choreography and set were both shows in and of themselves. The morning after I bought the full album and have been listening to it on repeat since. If I could go back for another round tomorrow, I would be there in a heartbeat. A couple months ago, I listened to this Fresh Air interview with Lin Manuel Miranda, and now I am finally reading and watching everything on the musical I can get my hands are a couple good ones in case you are interested...

bee in the bonnet.

Do you guys watch Samantha Bee? Ben and I love her and look forward to her weekly episode to watch! She is a weekly dose of sanity and humor for me. Much needed! But this segment of last week's episode has been stuck in my head since. Really? WTF LA? Only 12,000 people voted in their recent mayoral election....and that was after half a million people march in LA. Only 12,000 could show up to vote? So frustrating. So so frustrating and just had to vent it out...marching in pink is cool but showing up to vote and actually doing something after is where it is at.

I know, I know. I have been terrible on posting the last couple of weeks. I'll make it up to all three of you at some point soon! In the meantime, happy Friday. I am on a plane coming back from Dublin and I just bought this windbreaker from Cotopaxi. Cute, right?!
