I just got home from Beautiful The Carole King Musical and I couldn’t wait to write about it. It was a true delight! I want to write down the thoughts which are racing through my mind. I was aware of some of the most popular songs she composed, but did not realize how many of them I know. I have heard many of her songs hundreds, if not thousands of times! These are songs you hear interpreted by famous performers, as well as theme songs from movies. Some of these songs brought back memories of Continue reading →
Arriving at the screening with my friends Susannah and Lorena.
If you follow my blog or me on social media, you know going to the movies is one of my favorite things to do. I usually make a girls night out or a date night of it. Since becoming a mom, going to the movies has Continue reading →
Since I write posts for this series on Friday’s, the week for these posts kind of begins on Saturday or perhaps Sunday. This week was busy, as they mostly all are, but I did get an opportunity to enjoy visiting a neighbor on Saturday (see note from that outing here) and we went on a family outing on Sunday. Alessandra was filled with joy during Continue reading →

I will never forget the first gala I went to in San Diego. I was about 23 years old and was a volunteer for the San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Through my volunteer work at the Chamber’s events, I became friends with the organization’s Manager. We have remained good friends to this day. One day, she invited me to a dinner. I had no idea who we would be seating with or how nice the event would be. It was an event in a high rise hotel in La Jolla. We were seated at the Continue reading →
Have you ever wondered about myths? I have. I have also heard of the television series Mythbusters. The television show puts to the test myths and urban legends, some are common things, others may be a bit quacky. The series puts lots of myths to the test and determines if they are true or not. I always like to learn facts, and about science, and how things work and why. The new Mythbusters: An Explosive Exhibition at the Fleet Science Center (Fleet) is just about that! It is based on Continue reading →
When I was pregnant, my friend Lizeth and I had an Annual Membership to the Hotel Del Coronado’s spa (Spa at the Del, see my post here). It was a wonderful way get together at least once a month for a girls spa day. We usually went on a weekday because there were less people and we could enjoy the spa amenities with more tranquility. I remember we talked about renewing the membership and she suggested Continue reading →
If you can’t go to New York to see a Broadway show….go see a Broadway show in San Diego (or your city)! Going to the theatre is a fun outing, there is something magical and special that happens from live performances and amazing musicals! I’ve seen a few shows on Broadway in New York….and a few here in San Diego, the main difference is the city, the quality in the performances is wonderful! The Broadway shows which appear outside of New York are considered Broadway Shows on Tour (see explanation of touring show here & here). The group that presents the performances locally is Broadway San Diego – A Nederlnd Presentation and they also have Broadway presentations in other major cities. So, if you’ve ever wanted to see a Broadway show, just drive downtown and catch one! The 2013 season has several good shows scheduled for this year! This week you can still catch Sister Act, it is a wonderful, a feel-good musical! You will laugh, be touched by the message in the story, be awed by the musical performances, the stage scenery, and the costumes. Sister Act, based on the hit feature film, is winner of five 2011 Tony Award nominations and music by multi-Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning composer Alan Menken. It is a family friendly, spectacle with nuns that rock! The performances are this week, July 30 – August 4 at the San Diego Civic Theatre in downtown San Diego. There is one evening performance Friday (7pm), and two on Saturday (2pm & 7:30pm) and Sunday (1pm & 6pm). Tickets start at $39.50. For more details, you can visit BroadwaySanDiego.com/Sister-Act or Sister Act.
Enjoy the theatre!
