I received shout-outs this week to 2 of my all-time favorite movies. Steel Magnolias & The Wizard of Oz.
The first involved a bleeding armadillo groom’s cake. One of the guy counselors on staff is getting married next week & he requested a very special groom’s cake. One of the best I’ve ever seen, actually. (And I can’t even stand armadillos!) He had a mock-up of the cake with him this weekend. It was true to the movie…gray icing, red velvet cake on the inside…very…gross. But appreciated nonetheless.
The second was that we went to see Wicked this week. It was an early birthday gift from Ben….and it was A-ma-zing. Seriously, I can’t think of another musical that I liked better. Wonderful acting, great music, great special effects… And being that The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies, it was really fun to look at it from a different perspective.
And now I’d like some ruby slippers of my own…
