Popular Birthday

I know I have been MIA this past week…without a whole lot of advance planning, we decided to spend spring break in Montana with my parents.  I spent my time visiting and cooking, so there wasn’t much time to play on the Internet!  I had to reconcile myself to the fact that I was NEVER going to catch up on all my favorite blogs, and just pretend that everyone else was enjoying a spring break as well!

While we were in Montana, my oldest child turned the big ONE-FIVE!  This year we decided to grant her heart’s desire with a ticket to Wicked, which is coming to Salt Lake City in August.

She looks happy, don’t you think??

Actually, I’m happy, too!  I’m going with her!  (I haven’t seen it either.)

I wrapped up the ticket along with a canvas I made especially for her with lyrics from the song “Popular” from the play.  I’ve watched this video on YouTube at least twenty times!

“Popular” from the musical “Wicked”

I showed the canvas to my husband, and he said, “You don’t really believe that, do you??”

Of course not!  It’s just FUNNY!!  Silly man.

Trust me, I was decidedly UNpopular in high school!

The “Popular” canvas has a place of honor on her chest of drawers now—or at least until we get a chance to hang it up!

  Four more months till play-time!

Heck, Korrie. I was in the band! If only everyone could have been as popular as me! Ha! Wicked sounds like a fun time! Hope you enjoyed you SB with the family.

Hi Korrie,
Lucky birthday girl!
Wicked is one of my favorites. I'll be going again and taking my nieces when it comes back. It will be such fun for both of you.
The canvas is awesome!

Yay for birthdays! You will have the best time together! And your canvas is so much fun! There are a lot of happy colors going on in that room - love that!

Kimberly Terrell said...

Love all your signs and love this one. If you ever decide to make any others, I have a 15 year old who would love one.

So very adorable! - and, I realize I was supposed to be focusing on the canvas, but, BOY DO I LIKE THAT BLUE BIRD CAGE! ;) Her dresser accessory ensemble is adorable! Would love for you to share something with my readers at my second (EVER) linky party, Tips & Tricks. So very talented!


wisp said...

You two will love Wicked! I enjoyed it so much. :) I'm so excited for you!

KimMalk said...

That is just darling in her room! Have fun--and cheer up on your sewing project ;)!

Bliss said...

Welcome home I wondered where you were off too. My daughter saw Wicked in Chicago and loved it. Let us know how you like it too.


Irene said...

Love your daughter's reaction to her gift. Enjoy your night out together. I also love how the canvas looks in the room. Add to my To Do List for this weekend - Paint Bird Cage.

You were missed! Glad you had a wonderful time. The gift for your daughter was obviously a hit ~ I understand the show is spectacular!


Kimberly T. said...

I'm hoping to come down to SL in August to see it, too! Happy birthday to your daughter!

Heather said...

A couple of years ago my sister came to visit so we bought tickets to see Wicked while she was here. She has the whole score memorized and had seen it a couple of times before we went so she spent the days before the show giving me a "primer" on all the songs. So sweet. Our seats were on the 2nd row. It was great. Have a wonderful time. I think your sign is great - very cheeky.
