Behind the Scenes at Cirque du Soleil OVO

Cirque du Soleil rolled into town over the weekend with their new touring show, OVO. We were lucky enough to be invited to a behind-the-scenes look into their rehearsal day before the show on Friday and snapped some photos backstage. The arena was packed with everything from costumes and sewing machines to exercise equipment for the performers. It’s truly a fascinating world even before anyone steps foot on stage. Take a look behind the curtain of OVO just ahead.

First things first, it’s been a very long time since my husband and I went out to do anything that falls under the category of sexy/fun/sophisticated and/or exciting. I wish I were joking or exaggerating the truth for the sake of good commentary, but the fact is that we are going on eight years of marriage and the past four of those have been spent parenting a very independent child. So it is without any reservation that I can admit to you, my dear readers, that when the invitation to a sexy magic show at Faena Hotel Miami Beach showed up in my inbox, I was not only confused (really – I checked to make sure they meant me), but nearly leapt through the screen to RSVP and secure our spot.

Year Three

Jean Godfrey-June of Lucky Magazine interviews Lauren Conrad

Another year gone by and, yet again, when the 18th of May rolls around, I get that nagging suspicion I’ve forgotten something…which, of course, I inevitably have. The 18th marked my third year of blogging. When I looked back at year two, I thought there was no way I would top it, but just now looking back at my third year, I realize I have so much to be grateful for – and things are only getting better. Here’s a look back at my favorites (click on each pic to see more). Hope you enjoy. And THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading. <3

The Garden Themed Baby Shower

Garden-Themed-Baby-Shower

Tony and I are recovering from Baby Shower #2, which involved the loud chatter of my very enthusiastic Cuban family (who have actually begun to rub off on his Peruvian side) and copious amounts of the very best homemade ethnic food any pregnant woman could want.

For this one, we went with a garden theme, since it was hosted in the beautiful backyard of my aunt & uncle’s home. We enjoyed one of those rare cool and clear Miami afternoons that I usually just pray and/or daydream about. Gotta say, we are both feeling very blessed indeed.

Here are some of our favorite details, including the Polaroid sign-in book, Milk Jar Mimosas, and everyone’s favorite Pomeranian, Romeo.
