Molly Hooper

My students decided that they wanted to dress up like fun things this week, and they picked today was Sherlock Day. My contribution was a measly attempt at Molly Hooper- a cardigan reminiscent of a lab coat and a ponytail.

At least they seemed happy!

And speaking of my students, that’s where I’ve been for the past month! I just finished a production of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and boy, is my brain broken. It was a fantastic experience and my kids did a wonderful job, but it ate up all of my time. But now I have some time to breathe, and I can get back to doing things other than costume fittings and fight choreography rehearsals. It was a great idea to schedule the play right before Thanksgiving, because it gave me plenty of time to relax over the break. I literally spent my entire vacation (since I didn’t have access to the car) sitting around and writing. Marvelous!

But anyways…

I absolutely love this dress! One of my favorite bloggers had a clean-out-my-closet sale, and I snapped this one up immediately. It still had the tags on and everything! I’m looking forward to wearing it in the summer without a cardi or tights, but I couldn’t help but wear it now.

emerging from the depths of hell week!

I don’t know if anyone ever reads this, but I vanished off the face of the earth for a while. But it was for a very good reason!

I just finished my first show with my sweet students! They did an amazing job with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I’m so incredibly proud that it’s pretty much unbelievable.

But now I’m in that exhausted post show haze. My back hurts, my body is still trying to process excessive amounts of caffeine (yikes!) , and I have a bruised lump the size of Chicago on my forearm.

So I’m going to go back to dozing off while watching SNL on Netflix!
