Memory Lane

Nothing like a good ole trip down memory lane to make a date night special. Tonight Evan and I went out for a great dinner (yay broiled scallops!) at Green Acres and then attended the Sauk Prairie High School production of Once Upon a Mattress. For those of you playing along at home, yes....that's the show in high school where Evan and I met. It's the show that I almost didn't try out for. It's the show that I ended up landing the lead role in, which lead me down an entirely different path in my life. It's the show that changed both of our lives in ways that we shudder to think about now what would have happened if one of us hadn't been in it. I cried when Princess Winnifred sang her first number tonight. I still knew all the words to all her songs. It was such a great time to be able to enjoy that with Evan, 10 years after we enjoyed it together as cast members. The music program at Sauk is amazing as well, so the show was fantastic. If we had had half of the resources at Waupun that they have, our show would have been very different. Oh, and do they have some serious vocal talent! I can't even begin to gush about the amazing voices from these students. We left having enjoyed ourselves immensely and at least I felt rather sentimental. Hard to believe sometimes how one decision can end up changing your entire life, but that's what Once Upon a Mattress did for us. I guess it will always have a special place in my heart because of it.
