I wish my life was like a musical

I love musicals. I did not get the gift of performing like my sister or my dad, but I love watching musicals. I remember going to my first musical when I was around 5 I think. It was My Fair Lady and we sat in the balcony of Knoxville Civic Auditorium. I am pretty sure we sat in the balcony in case I couldn't make it through the whole thing. Since then, my parents have taken us to many more musicals and I have fallen in love with the costumes, the scenes, and the drama. I think that musicals in one of the things that makes our family so unique. We have name that musical sing-a-longs and trivia at holiday gatherings.

My favorite thing about musicals is how the characters are in a middle of a conversation and break into song and dance. I wish we did this more in life. I actually have a friend who does this in real life. My friend Jamie has a special talent of making our lives into a musical. In college, she would write songs about our lives. It is truly a gift.

One thing I love about Nashville is that so many great Broadway shows come on tour here!
Last night Adrienne and I went to see Legally Blonde: The Musical. It was so much fun! It was a cute musical that had so much energy. I love musicals that just make me laugh so hard that I cry! While I was watching Legally Blonde, I seriously thought about trying out for a traveling show! Ever since then I have been thinking about which part I would try out for. It is a very serious question to be considered and I will let you know when I come up with my final answer!
