Mary Poppins

I woke up yesterday with a lot of energy, which I funneled into cleaning the house. After I got the house up to my standards, I decided to head to the gym to get in a sweat session. I spent 30 minutes running intervals on the treadmill, where I altered my speed each minute between 6 mph and 9 mph before spending a few minutes doing a serious incline walk. Once I was done with the treadmill, I hopped on the death machine step mill for 15 minutes.

I did some more intervals on this machine, alternating between a level 7, a level 10 and a level 14. According to the machine, I tackled 78 floors.

It felt really good to start my Saturday with a quality cardio session!

After sweatin’ it out, it was time to take Ob & Marley to the park for their exercise. We let them run wild on the nature trails for about an hour and a half before it was time to come home and get ready for a super fun night!

Anybody recognize this umbrella?

Last night I went to go see Mary Poppins on Broadway with Dave & my mom. Mary Poppins was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I had already seen the play twice in New York, but I couldn’t resist seeing it again last night.

Before the show, we planned a delicious dinner at Chart House, a beautiful seafood restaurant on the St. Johns River. I indulged in mango mojitos, calamari, ahi tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes and then polished all that off with chocolate cake. The mango mojito was my favorite. Surprise, Surprise.

After dinner it was time for the show!

We had great seats, about 10 rows back in the center of the stage. My favorite scenes from the play included step in time, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and its a jolly holiday with Mary. My favorite character was the little boy, Michael Banks. He was such a talented little actor and his funny lines stole the show, in my opinion.

Dave & I had a big debate after the show about whether the kids in the play were actually British. Dave thinks they were because he said no kid could have that good of an accent. I think they are American kids who are just really talented though. Anybody out there seen the play? Want to weigh in on this great debate? ha

It was such a lovely evening spent with some of my favorite people!

Now, I’m off to enjoy my Sunday!

Have you ever seen a broadway show? Tell me about it! 

What is one movie you wish would be made into a broadway show? 

I’ve heard Peter Pan was (is?) a broadway show, but I’ve never seen it. I would love to see that done on broadway because that was also one of my favorite childhood movies and I think it would be spectacular live.




    • Grease is awesome, Kate! ha, but I’m not that cultured either so my opinion of the arts probably doesn’t matter too much. I really just like seeing plays where I loved the movie.

  1. So jealous! That looks amazing ♥ I love, love, looove plays!! I saw “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway. I don’t know if Peter Pan is on Broadway, but I saw it at the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh – it was awesome! 🙂

    • I imagine Peter Pan being magical on broadway! So neat that you got to see it, Jessica!

  2. I’m still savoring that great night! Good food, great play, and wonderful company! Thank you for a wonderful night!
