Well now that I have that song stuck in your head, allow me to share what I did last night! My friend, Anna, CJ, and I all went out to a quick dinner at Carytown Burgers and Fries before heading onto Richmond's Landmark Theater for the Mary Poppin's play.

|Step In Time number. Do not be fooled by how far away it looks, we were in the 5th row, center, so we actually had pretty amazing seats!|
The play was not very in sync with the movie, which was quite sad. I love the movie, so I felt there were a few missed opportunities where they could have done better. But I have heard from a few people that the play is sort of a mix of the book and the movie, I just did not know that going into it, so my expectations were up higher than they should have been. The most awesome scene in the movie--the dancing penguins was totally left out and instead they had statues that came to life and started dancing around. That is just one example of many!
At any rate, I enjoyed spending time with the girls and am looking forward to Les Miserables next month (I just wish I had not seen that movie now too!)
