Sunday Best

This weekend was definitely a fun one! It started on Friday with seeing The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Moonlight Amphitheatre. It was amazing! I have never seen an actor channel his character the way David Burnham played Quasimodo. It was amazing how his physical and mental portrayal of the character seemed so real. If you’re in the area, go see it!

On Saturday, I took Amelia to my favorite donut shop. My Dad and I went to VG’s Bakery in Cardiff every Saturday morning during high school and college. We’d get donuts, take them to my Grandma’s house, and spend our morning watching my Grandma eat a pecan sticky bun and ice cream in her coffee. For a year and a half I have avoided going to VG’s alone and getting my usual order. It was emotional sitting next to the beach and remembering all the times I used to gripe about getting up early to get donuts and wishing I could take it all back.

Also that morning I got a text from my sister in law who got last minute tickets to see Once at the Lambs Players Theatre on Coronado Island. I’ve always wanted to see this show so of course I said yes! I had never been to this particular theatre so it was a night of firsts. The coolest part was that the show took place in an Irish pub so before the show and during intermission the pub on stage functioned as a real pub. We couldn’t go and not get a Guinness. The show was so beautiful and I can see what it’s been extended several times. All the actors play all the instruments, it was just so beautiful.

Sunday was spent showering my best friend from high school and her little baby girl! She’s due September 19 so we’re patiently waiting for baby girl to arrive. She had a tea party baby shower at her friends house which was located right next to the beach. The windows were open the whole time so there was such a nice breeze and the sound of the ocean could have put me to sleep.

It was such a fun weekend but I am definitely so tired from it all! Hope y’all had a great weekend! This week will be an exciting one since Amelia’s first birthday is on Friday!
