Awesome Closing Weekend

The closing weekend of "Our Leading Lady" was wonderful.  My friend, Kelly, flew in on Saturday afternoon to make the drive back with me. We drove to Redondo Beach because I wanted to go to the beach one last time before leaving for Texas. 


While we were there, something amazing happened!  Not 100 yards off the coastline, we saw whales!  Can you spot the three dorsal fins and one fluke (tail) below?


That night, we met up with my blog buddies who drove down from San Francisco. From left: Tommy' Mommy, Jelly Jules, Me, Autumn's Mom, and Cherry. This was our dinner at El Torito Grill...my fave Mexican Restaurant in Cali!


Then they all came to see my show:


We all had so much fun over dinner, we decided to go out afterward for dessert at Denny's! Thank you for making the trip, ladies!  I had such a great time seeing you again (and meeting you, Liz!)


On Sunday, several local friends came to see my show!  These ladies are from my acting class.  


About a year or two ago, the Hollywood Prayer Network matched me with a wonderful woman named Patty who committed to pray for me and my acting career. We have e-mailed and talked on the phone, but met in person for the first time on Sunday. She gave me these beautiful roses. So sweet!


It was a great closing weekend!

Kelly and I hit the road this morning and made it to Tucson, AZ!  You know you're not in California anymore, when you see this display at Wal-Mart:


I'll likely not post again until I arrive at my new home in a couple days. Until then, may God bless you all!

A totally fun weekend had by all. So glad we were able to pull that together at the last minute. It was a treat to get to see you perform.

I hope you and Kelly are having a fun drive and are getting to stop and take photos and just make it an enjoyable time. Of course I KNOW you want to get HOME quickly. I hear there is a certain someone just waiting for you... ok a few certain someones.

HUGS!

Please tell Kelly that it was wonderful to meet her. I think we could have chatted all night.
