We woke up early and left at 5 in the morning for Albuquerque. It's always fun to be with Reese. She is entertaining and full of good stories. We stayed with her friend, actually her YW leader in Turkey. Trina was so cute and sweet, and I thought she was some teenager answering the door when we got there. She was so much fun and hung out with us for the day and even insisted on treating us to lunch.
After a day of shopping we got ready and headed off to the UNM campus. We parked and rode a bus that dropped us off right at the door. I am so glad we knew of that little secret. We were in and out of there in a flash! We found our seats and sat there like giddy teenagers at a Bieber concert. I had my favorite reds starbursts, my friend, and a show to watch. I couldn't have been happier. It was so hard not to talk to her during the play. I loved it so much. I loved the singing, the acting, the special effects, the hilarious lines and made up words, the intricate set and exquisite costumes, and the creative plot. It was perfect and every second was completely entertaining.
We got back to Trina's house late and stayed up talking for a few hours. We slept a short while and headed out early the next morning for home. I am so glad we went. Even though we felt totally hungover from lack of sleep and junk food overload, every minute of the trip was perfect. Reese was the perfect friend to go with. She appreciates music, talent, and the work that goes into a production like this. She was as excited as I was and that made it even more fun. I am going to start inviting myself along to things more often. So, if you have planned something fun and you don't want me to come, you better not tell me about it.
