2017 Holiday Gift Guide - Visit HoustonRead More
You only have a few days left to catch Freaky Friday at the Alley Theatre! This is a show you do not want to miss....we literally laughed the entire night. I've seen many shows at the Alley....because I'm a huge theatre fan, but this has by far been one of the best I've ever attended! I love the original Disney movie so much....and having three teen nieces makes it even funnier because I know how dramatic and emotional teen girls can be. You would only understand this if you have been a teen girl yourself at some point in time LOL. Isn't it crazy how we feel that our problems are the center of the universe at that age, and we treat others based on how we are feeling. Now looking back... I realize that it was such a great moment in time because you have zero adult responsibilities (but don't you dare say that to a teenage girl)!
This play is based on the popular novel by Mary Rodgers, and it was then turned into Disney movie with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis that premiered in 2003. The story is about an overworked mother who is planning her wedding and her rebellious daughter that is having a really tough time fitting in with her high school peers. A magical night causes them to switch bodies and they are forced to adapt to each others lives. It takes you through a rollercoaster of emotions because we see the struggles of each character and the switch makes them better understand each other and their feelings. I won't give you more details on the actual storyline but the characters in this play are amazing! From the singing to the dancing, to the jokes and the tears, every single moment has the audience captivated. This is a musical comedy like no other, because we were literally in tears from laughing so much. Emma Hunton and Heidi Blickenstaff are extremely talented, and bring these two beautiful characters to life....the energy on stage is contagious and the music and dancing are like no other. We had such an amazing girls night out at the theatre...thank you again Alley Theatre for this special screening and invitation. If you haven't checked out the Alley Theatre, please be sure to click on their website link because they have amazing shows all season. Freaky Friday ends July 2, so hurry up and catch the show!
Everyone kept asking where I was last night and why I was painting eyes on cute little bowls...well here is a little more info on the fun event I attended on May 10, 2017 at Whole Foods Market on Waugh.
The Houston Food Bank and Whole Foods Montrose hosted a really fun event in Houston yesterday and my sister and I had the pleasure of attending! It was an event with light bites provided by Whole Foods and Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company provided samples of some very delicious beers. Mad Potter was there to provide the ceramic bowls and paints for us to paint hence the hashtag #brewsforbowls that we all used for this event.
This fabulous event was really important to create community and bring us all together to support Empty Bowls Houston "which is a grassroots effort by artists, skilled crafters, students and teachers dedicated to alleviating hunger in the greater Houston area".
The 13th Annual Empty Bowls Houston will be
Saturday June 3, 2017 from 11am-3pm
at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft 4848 Main Street Houston, Texas 77002
For a minimum donation of $25, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one of a kind hand crafted bowls donated by the Houston area ceramists, then receive a simple lunch of soup donated by Whole Foods Market and freshly prepared by Houston Food Bank Community Kitchen. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured that day as well.
The empty bowls serve to remind us of of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world. It is such a neat idea and I'm really excited to have been a part of this. I gave my bowl a very Leyla Moon twist to it and decorated it with some really eye catching eyes! A very special shoutout to Whole Foods Market for hosting such a fun event with some really amazing people...honestly can't wait for the next one!
