Kerrie Yeung Silver Stacking Ring

I love the stacking ring trend that is popular now. These thin silver stacking rings from Kerrie Yeung caught my eye and would look great separately or worn together.

4th of July Fun

This year on the 4th of July I went to the Muny with friends to see Nunsense. Since we didn't get to see fireworks on the 4th, we went to the JB Blast in St. Louis on July 5th to get our fireworks fix. It was a fun couple of days with friends.

There was live music (very far away) but we could still hear it from where we were sitting.

The fireworks show was impressive!

Lovely Things

I have many photos to share from the past couple of weeks, but I haven't transferred the photos off my phone yet. So...in the meantime, here are some lovely items that have caught my eye recently:

An American in Paris

I was a little late in getting around to watching this, but I finally watched the musical, An American in Paris this past weekend. My favorite musical is Singin' in the Rain, largely because of Gene Kelly and his great dancing, so it is no surprise that I also loved An American in Paris. Those golden years of musicals-1940s and 1950s were truly something special. I can't believe how talented these people were-so many triple threats with the singing, dancing, and acting.

My friends and I had intentions of playing board games and playing this movie in the background but within 5 minutes we were sucked into the movie (1 out of 3 had already seen it) and we didn't play a game until the movie was over.

I'm happy that it is Muny season and I get to see a musical live every week. This week is South Pacific, next week is Les Miserables, then Mary Poppins, and last West Side Story. Very excited for that last stretch of shows!

Besides seeing musicals every week, I'm also in the mood to rent more classic musicals. What are your favorites?

Fireworks Fun

Last Tuesday (a couple days before the 4th) I got together with friends for an early 4th of July celebration. I went to my friend, Kati's mom's house for pizza and fireworks. We also squeezed in a viewing of SYTCD. :-)

Kati and Nick bought sparklers, roman candles, and several other fireworks. They even bought a few large fireworks which were quite a surprise during the finale! A few neighbors were grouchy about the noise, but most people enjoyed watching the fireworks too.







And a few videos of silly fireworks fun:

I have been struggling with some personal issues lately and this quote makes me happy:
