The Chicago area got hit by some very brief but severe storms this morning, leaving thousands, including myself, without power. We heard that it may take 3 days for our power to get restored, but hopefully I’ll be up & running sooner!
My 10-month old & I were pretty bored today with no electricity. What do you do to keep you & your family entertained during a power outage? Click on the title of this post & leave me a comment below

After playing a sold out engagement in Chicago in April 2010, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has come back to Chicago for 6 weeks through August 7th!
I have to admit, ever since I heard Lea Salonga sing in Miss Saigon, my absolute dream job has been to be a Broadway star! So I was thrilled when Broadway in Chicago invited me to watch Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! With that being said, I honestly have only seen one musical that I really didn’t like.
I love love LOVED Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! I was really impressed with how everything from the movie, which is a cartoon, was translated on stage with real actors. There were some great special effects! I especially enjoyed the choreography, the sets used in each scene, and the comedy throughout the show.
I wish my daughter was old enough to go with us to see Disney’s Beauty and the Beast because it’s also a family-friendly show. I loved seeing the little girls dressed in their princess dresses in the audience. Some of us even got to speak with some of the cast after the show, and I thought it was interesting that since there are kids in the audience, they get more of a reaction than they do with other shows.
