Just a Touch of Me... Just a Touch of Me

Oh my goodness, ladies, last night was amazing! A lil unexpected, but incredible. I know yesterday I stated we were going to see the American Ballet's Cinderella at the Kennedy Center. Weeeeeellll, that's not exactly what happened. Due to a slight mix up, the show we saw was not Cinderella but three Acts of three different ballets. And y'all, they were amazing. JUST AMAZING! The mixup actually worked in our favor because we were able to see the great MISTY COPELAND in a principal role and she was incredible. Homegirl had the audience eating out of her hand she was absolute perfection.

It might not have been the ballet we expected, but it was still a masterful ballet. The principals were fantastic and I was in awe of the beautiful lines in the company. We all had a wonderful evening at the ballet and it was a memorable night for all of us.
Mama B and I rocking the blush yesterday :)!
Lovely Brady ladies at the Kennedy Center. So majestic and fun.
