As many of you may already know I have a BIG birthday coming up (tomorrow…eeeek!!!) and so this weekend my friend Elizabeth and I celebrated by going to Memphis, TN and watching Mary Poppins, the musical!! Her birthday was last month and so we did a joint birthday weekend. Little selfie action before we left of course…
We left early Saturday morning and stopped at Chick-fil-a to get the party started with some Chicken Minis!! In true Ricci fashion, my Diet Coke attacked me before we even left Little Rock and I wound up rocking this stain…
Our first stop once in Memphis was the mall!! What girl doesn’t love a mall?!
We found a carousel…
…and ate yummy mall Chinese!
After the mall we headed to our hotel to get ready for the show.
We got to the Orpheum about 30 minutes before the show started and I am soooo glad we did because the line to get in was ridiculous and the theater was gorgeous and we needed to take more selfies! HA!
The show was amazing and even though it didn’t follow the movie at all it was still a good story. I am sooooo glad I got the opportunity to watch this on stage!!! It was a long show too, it started at 8 and we didn’t get out until 11!
After the show, we went back to the hotel and PASSED OUT! LOL!
The next morning we had brunch at the hotel before heading home. They had a make your own waffle station, YUM!!
It rained most of the way home but the sky cleared up once we hit Arkansas!!
I LOVE trips and staying at hotels but there is no better feeling than going home and sleeping in your own bed!!
Happy early Birthday to me!!
Have you ever been to The Memphis Orpheum??
Have you seen Mary Poppins??
