This particular post is a little bit of non-Halloween one, it just happens that I started off my favorite month by seeing my favorite musical. The first weekend of October saw me and Kaci traveling to Austin, TX for the closing shows as well as for me to visit my cousins.
We left Corpus around 10 in the morning, stopped to get gas and breakfast and made it to Austin around 2 p.m. after a short stop at Buc-ees. Our only night in Austin was spent shopping, hiking, having home-cooked meals and watching movies.
Our Sunday was show day which meant brunch and mimosas.
Side-note: Apparently a matinee does not always mean the show starts two, it could mean that it starts at one. I did not know this so Kaci and I walked in about 20 minutes late after buying a couple pieces of merchandise and taking a photo with the photo-booth.
Besides walking in late, the play was fantastic. The performers gave it their all and you could see it in the way they moved and acted. I was reminded why I fell in love with this play. Newsies came into my life when I was having a hard time adjusting and questioning a lot of things in my life, and when these newsboys spun and tumbled their way into my life, I stopped searching.
Newsies taught me how that it does not matter how small you are, if you have enough heart, you can take on the world. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of the guys and gals who carried the banner for 5 years and 1,767 shows.
Every single one of the cast members were super sweet and loved to have a conversation. Through those conversations, we learned Stephen is a Broncos fan (whoop whoop!), Andy has the best facials, Chaz is the biggest sweetheart, Nick did not realize how hot it got in Texas, Morgan was on Kaci's side on what is considered booties (as well as how they were wearing matching shoes) and Josh is not from the South but loves the best thing at Whataburger (Honey BBQ Chicken Strip Sandwich). All in all, a FANTASTIC way to start my favorite month off!
Until next time,
