RSI #8

Last week, I participated in my 8th Rockette Summer Intensive. I guess it was technically my 7th, because I was an assistant at one in the past. It was a physically and mentally demanding week, but it was probably the most rewarding. A lot of my friends were there which made it even more fun since we worked toward our goals together. While I was not one of the lucky ladies to be hired onstage, I felt like I had a great performance and will continue to work toward my dream. I even started tearing up onstage, because I have never felt closer to making it a reality. My mom was in town for the showcase so I got to stay in a hotel with her.  When we got to the hotel room, my boyfriend had sent my dream roses that can last an entire year! 

After my showcase performance, my mom and I went to see my friend in War Paint. I LOVED it. She was a total star and those costumes are to die for. We were able to go onstage and take pics after and we got to say hi to Christine Ebersole. I left the theatre feeling inspired and definitely recommend the show. 

During my mom's time in the city we went to One World Trade Center. I thought The Empire State Building was amazing, but this was incredible. We had a little wine as we took in the best view ever. Then I made everyone go to Black Tap for those insta-worthy shakes. I believe we had the Sweet N' Salty (a peanut butter lovers dream). The food was way too good as well and I love the atmosphere. 

On her last day in town, we had brunch at The Loeb Boathouse in Central Park. It has the sickest view and yummy food. I can't really have dairy so I just sample stuff the people I'm with order. That mac n' cheese...if I could I would eat ALL OF IT. We walked it all off as we explored the absolutely perfect Conservatory Garden.
