Dancing with Excitement

This will be a quick post because I’ve got to get dressed to head off to The Nutcracker Ballet!!!!!  I’m so excited, it should be a really fun date night!

Not as exciting, was this morning, when I overslept and had to sprint to school to make it to my classroom before the bell!  I snacked on this Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna bar on the train ride there.

I used to have a love affair with Luna bars in college but they are not my favorite anymore.  I’m not sure what is turning me off, I think the texture.  I’d like to retry some of the flavors but I don’t want to spend the money if I end up disliking them.

I obviously couldn’t pack lunch this morning so I ended up eating an unphotographed slice of cheese pizza (and an Emergen-C).  I also had a sour patch kid – my girls’ class is so cute, they bring me a piece of candy every day!  I had a pretty good day today.  My kids were calm and they got really into our reading lesson.  We are on a journalistic article unit so I brought in magazines for them to analyze.  And during our writing period (we are writing articles about the 1920’s) I blasted some Dizzy Gilepse for theme music!

When I got home I found this wonderful Christmas box from my grandma:

A and I each got an ornament (mine is a kitchen mitt and A’s is the leg lamp from “A Christmas Story”)

and I got some TJ’s $$ and my Nana knitted A a homemade stocking!  So sweet.

For dinner I topped my chicken chili leftovers with a Tbsp TJ’s light Mexican cheese and a dollop of nonfat plain Greek yogurt.

Chili is always good leftover, this was even better than in the restaurant!

I’m still a bit hungry so I’ll probably have a snack at some point.  I’m so excited about tonight!  What is your favorite dance/musical production?

    I LOVE leftover chili. So much better than when it’s first made.

    Enjoy the Nutcracker!

    I like pretty much all musicals, but I did get really into Rent for a while.

    Either Lucia di Lammermoor or La Traviata. They’re both Operas. Oh and Mahler’s Symphony No.8, aka Symphony of a Thousand was SPECTACULAR! Def a toss=up btw the three though 🙂

    I know those aren’t musicals, but I think they are BEYOND 🙂
