Waitress closes on Broadway today and I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude for my experience at the diner. What an incredibly beautiful show. Everything about my short run in Waitress was magical. The music, the story, the lyrics, the fans, and oh my god the most incredible cast of people I’ve ever known. I learned something and grew as a person every day on stage. I could go on and on about everything this show means to me but there’s just too much to say. I listened to this show when it first came out and related to dawn and dreamt of being able to bring her to life some day. I listened to the soundtrack when I was pregnant and wept hearing lyrics that could explain how I felt but couldn’t articulate. I listened to this soundtrack and sobbed after I gave birth to my son and heard the lyrics “i was lost for you to find. and now i’m yours and you are mine...I swear I’ll remember to say we were both born today.” I listened to the soundtrack right after I got the role of dawn and wept in disbelief that my childhood dream of being on Broadway was finally coming true. and today I’m listening to the soundtrack and have so many tears of gratitude for this show and the impact it has had on my life. Goodbye Waitress. Thank you for all of the tears, smiles, laughter and lessons you have brought to so many people all over the world. #MayWeAllBeSoLucky
this guy right here is a good one. i can always count on @joeygraceffa for a fun night, a good laugh, a shoulder to cry on, and a crazy adventure in an escape room. Thanks for being one of the most caring, loving, genuine friends i’ve ever had. Also, thanks for still being my friend when i stupidly try to solve a puzzle by turning myself into a human pretzel upside-down on the floor of a underwater prison or when i aggressively rip tags out of my nasa suit and get angry at the clues i don’t understand in space.
Okay, I know Christmas is over but MY HOLIDAY SPIRIT IS STILL THRIVING because my amazing friend @jimcaruso1 put out a holiday album this year and it’s amazing! I hate myself for not posting this sooner but you should all go get it right now and support one of the most supportive, talented, wonderful people i’ve ever been lucky enough to know. Listen to the album and start getting excited for the holidays in 2020!🎄
had my final performance of the decade last night in a theater i used to see musicals in when i was in college. i auditioned for a few shows here back in the day (never got in anything lol ) so it felt surreal and kind of magical to perform my one woman show to a sold out audience of internet friends so many years later. i can’t thank you guys enough for supporting me and allowing me to do what i love most for over 10 years. I started off this decade performing anywhere and everywhere i could as i developed my one woman show and i finished the decade on stage with my son in my arms. i feel so grateful to all of you and in shock that somehow i’m still lucky enough to do what i love with the people i love most. thank you. 💕🤱🏻🎶💄🎭
One of our favorite things to do for date night is stay home and cook dinner together. Lately we have been trying to make healthier choices and tonight we are cooking our new favorite entree - @CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders. They are made with Real premium chicken with a crunchy cauliflower-packed coating and they are the ONLY baked (not fried ) chicken tender in the freezer aisle and just 490 calories for the WHOLE bag! Erik loves that they are so healthy, but I just love that they taste freakin' delicious. #NoCluckinWay #CAULIPOWER #DateNight #CAULIPOWERPartner
