Back in October Max and I drove to Minneapolis to see HAMILTON the musical! We started off the trip with peach rings (obviously) and two failed attempts at finding working aux cords. Bucky's off 72nd and i-80 hooked us up, luckily.

This was the spread that awaited us at our fancy steakhouse dinner - they roll this table over to you to show you all the cuts of meat, and I kid you not this lobster was the size of my torso. Also, it was alive still, which made Max and I kind of sad.
We celebrated Max's birthday from the previous weekend and let the waiter treat us to dessert. Then, it was HAMILTIME.

The show was just so good, everything we wanted it to be and more. My favorite songs were Dear Theodosia and Quiet Uptown because of the incredible emotional acting in those numbers; I loved King George because he was HILARIOUS; Aaron Burr stole the show with his stage bearing, singing, acting, and everything...he was the glue for the show; and then the other surprising and excellent part was the characters' dancing - it was so funny! I'm so glad we got to see the show live - it really adds a new depth to the songs and story we love so much. As always, it was fun to share the experience with my brother, too.
A perk of going to Minneapolis that weekend was that our high school friend, Tat, got married and we were able to go! Tat was in my grade and we knew all of the same people, and Max was best friends with her little sister and still is really close to their family. It was so fun to reconnect with friends I haven't seen in years, and chat as a good ol' Papillion bunch again. Plus the ceremony was short and beautiful, and the diet coke was unlimited.
|Easily the best table there - fun to see Jessie "Plumb" again, although I assured everyone I was|

(Aaand, if I had finished this right when it happened there would have been a lot more details, but as it is over two months since this trip occurred I am satisfied with this report.)
(AAAND, I think I am finally completely caught up!!!! I hope to get in a consistent groove before this baby comes so that it will be easier to keep up instead of always falling behind. I do still need to blog about this pregnancy, so I guess I'm not fully fully caught up, but since I still have 10 weeks to go I'm not technically behind yet!)
