Where Have I Been!?

Wow! It has been such a long time since I posted last. This summer has been flying by and I wanted to catch you up with a summer recap of sorts:daisy beachI celebrated my 30th birthday at the end of May with family and we crammed as much as possible into one weekend! We celebrated with Rib Fest in Grand Haven, drive in movie, a day trip to Ikea (I can’t wait to show you the fun things I picked up!) and lots of amazing food and treats right here in West Michigan!

June and July were also packed full of rehearsals and performances for the two shows that I was involved in at the Howmet Playhouse! First, I had the opportunity to be cast in “Unnecessary Farce” as Billy and it was a wild ride!billy dwyer in unnecessary farceMy wig also made me look a little bit like Arya Stark… always a bonus!

It was so much fun working with those talented young actors. I built 14 puppets for the production and an additional 3 for personal use! I can’t wait to show you some of the pictures in a separate post on Friday!!

In this midst of all of this was the climatic conclusion to the “Sewergate Saga” which I’ll also have to rant about on another day!

I also cut off 5 inches of my hair! Is this blog worthy? Probably not but, eh, I do what I want!
