Guys & Dolls at Westchester Broadway Theatre A Must See & GiveAway

Last Night my Husband & I had the pleasure of being invited to a press opening of Guys & Dolls at Westchester Broadway Theatre .

Guys & Dolls which is set in the colorful world during the prohibition in New York City.  Is  Considered to be one of the greatest musicals of all time. Guys & Dolls  has one of the greatest musical scores in the history of American theatre. Including hits such as  “Luck Be A Lady”, “Guys and Dolls”, “If I Were A Bell, and “Sit Down Your Rockin’ The Boat”.

Based in New York  the city that never sleeps where The news seller ,  the chorus girl,   the gambler and the missionary,  seem to get caught up in the teeming vitality of the city streets.

Every character  from Damon Runyon’s  story has a story of their own.  Sergeant Sarah Brown , of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trys to spread the word, and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets, full of tipsters, gamblers, and con men. Adelaide , the showgirl who is desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door.  And then there is Nathan Detroit , trying to find yet another new location for his floating dice game all while trying to keep just one short step ahead of the law. Let’s not forget the  gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll. My favorite was Nicely Nicely Johnson,  something about him I related to.  All waiting for that winning streak that will keep them ahead of the game.  Sky Masterson ,  the coolest high roller of them all, who would bet on anything that would turn him a profit.

Adelaide who has been engaged to Nathan for over 14 years, learns that although she would like to change the man that she  loves that it is sometimes easier said then done.  Sergeant Sarah who falls in love with Sky comes to realize we can’t change the Guy we love,  being who he is might just be the reason why we might have fallen in love with him.

Allie Schauer (as Adelaide), Michael Brian Dunn (as Nathan Detroit), Gary Lynch (as Sky Masterson) and Courtney Glass (as Sarah Brown)

The first time I tried them on I could already tell the difference between these ones and my regular sandals that I usually wear. They are so comfortable to walk around in and I could barely tell that I actually had them on. I actually ended up having them on most of the day while I went out to the grocery store, came home put everything away and then while I cooked dinner. I can for sure tell you that I did feel a difference in how my lower back felt after cooking dinner while wearing these shoes versus wearing my slippers or regular shoes. I loved how much they helped me feel so good while doing what I was doing.

Something really cool about their shoes too is that they are machine washable, but please dont put them in the drier or expose them to temps over 150 degrees. OOFOS has three differenty styles OOriginal Thongs, OOaah Slide and OOcloog Clog. The Thongs & Slides are priced at $39.95 and the Clogs are $49.95. All of them also come in a variety of colors.

Valentines Day Another Day to Make A Memory

With today being Valentines Day today like any other is another day to make a memory, YET this day I feel makes more memories then we realize.  Valentines Day is a day that teaches little boys early how to treat women and also gives families another reason to celebrate our love for each other.

As I have written time and time again I love themes, parties and any excuse to make a memory. Valentines Day allows all of that and more. I am not speaking of the commercialism of the holiday, I am speaking of time to tell each other you love them. It is also an opportunity to take the time to do something special for your special someone be it friend, teacher, babysitter, or lover!

Main Man has been excited since we ordered POKEMON valentines months ago for his friends, and was relived when I said it was time to FINALLY open them. My son has taken deep pride this year in his valentines and his writing is very clear in addressing them and signing his name. He even made sure to include his best buds with who he does not go to school with and friends who are not in his class along with special chocolates for them as well. He is learning early and I am one proud mama.

POKEMON Valentines and Treats

In our house we celebrate  valentines day with a family dinner that we choose together. This year we have  all chosen pizza since I have to work and it is something we all like. (Friday night I will surprise my big main man with homemade white clam sauce). Big Man is usually on dessert duty and I am curious as to what he will come home with tonight. I have prepared some chocolate covered strawberries which is always a family favorite.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries a Family Favorite

I am a firm believer that a gift should be given that comes from the heart so I took direction from little love as to what he wanted to give his cousins, grandmother, and aunt for valentines day. He asked me to get his cousin Sammi a build a bear gift card, mind you Sammi is almost 17 so I think there is a slight hidden agenda there. Although she did tell him that they could go together if she ever got one. He asked me to take him to get Grandma a cookbook because she cooks for him and should be a chef. He said for his cousin Meira we should get her a bigger closet and more places to hang her clothes so she can respect her room.  He suggested we get everyone chocolate. Nicholas was quick to remind me that I should get  dark chocolate for grandma because that is what she likes.  I was sure to make a visit to 5th Avenue Chocolate Works for some homemade goodies for everyone.

Homemade Chocolate from 5th Avenue for Meira

When its time to exchange our valentines I look forward to everyones smiles of joy as they open there gifts from main man. Main Man has told me that I  am his valentine and he had been shopping with Daddy but it is a big secret! All I keep saying is he is all I want and he makes everyday valentines day.

Build A Bear For Nicholas & Sammi

Gifts for our Babysitter complete with MANI/PEDI


KIDZ BOP 23 For Nicholas


New memories will be made today from the moment we wake up and so the memory making begins.

Main Street Mama hopes that you and your family have a happy valentines day and make wonderful memories together!
