Sleepover and Play

Nathan and Clara had a sleepover at Aunt Mel's this Friday night. We have pizza for dinner, read books, and watched Cinderella while eating brownies. Mmmm, mmmm!!!

I emailed the Children of Eden director this morning and told him I needed to go to my parent's farm so I wouldn't be able to do the show. It was my big dilemma this weekend because I REALLLYYYYYY want to be in a play. So, the plan is to work really hard this summer prepping for my Musical Review and 2 plays so I'll have time to do a show during the next school year.

I auditioned for Children of Eden on Tuesday. It went well-"Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" is always a good one!! I'll keep you all posted. Part of me REALLY wants to make it in because it would be F-U-N FUN...but part of me doesn't want to make it because it means giving up one month on the farm. Once again, I'm leaving it in the Lord's hands!!
I did find out that the Beauty and the Beast cast is only 56 people and they had 150 at call backs-not good odds. None of the Silly Girl finalist got cast AT ALL-weird!

Chocolate Protien Anyone?

One of the science teachers at my school brought us cupcakes on Monday. They were quite tasty! It wasn't until after we ate them that he informed us we had just had our protein fix for the day-yep, that's right-protein!!
He took a can of black beans. You drain and rinse them. Then, you put them back in the can and fill the can with water. Pour the beans and water into the blender and blend. Pour that tasty looking mixture in with a box of chocolate cake mix and bake. NO oil, No eggs-that's it. Beans, water, and mix. He said he did add about 3/4 tsp of baking powder but that it's not necessary. Cool huh!!!
You can supposedly do this with brownies, white cake, cookies, etc. You just choose a bean that is the same color as your mix so your kids won't know the difference!
Yeah for BEANS!!!

Well, I finally found out about Beauty and the Beast. I didn't make it in. I'm disappointed because I was excited for a social life and looking forward to dancing again. But, at the same time, I asked the Lord to guide the directors in regards to casting me or not so I can't complain that he let them know this wasn't what I needed to be doing at this time. I really feel He did guide them because this has been my strongest audition and call back that I've ever done. So Sandpoint, Here I Come!!

Hmpf-as mentioned in my last post, I auditioned for Beauty and the Beast. Callbacks ended on Monday and still no cast list. I'm trying to be patient. They said probably sometime next week. Blah! I am one of six finalist for a Silly Girl. There are 3 of them so 1/2 of us will get cut.
School is blah so I'm taking tomorrow off. No special plan, just not coming to school!! Yippeeee!!!
