This week has been FUN! We started working on our choreography for the ABBA show and have been having such an amazing time whipping our show into quite a presentation. I am so happy to be working with such talented and creative people. And unbelievably happy to see that underneath my awkwardly long limbs and silly goofing around, I think there’s actually a happy little dancer inside. I can actually do this stuff, you guys. And sing at the same time, you guys. YOU GUYS!
This week we also discovered the Caesar’s Palace swimming pool. After a few people recommended giving this a try, we just walked right in, took towels from the front desk, smiled at the attendant, and made ourselves comfortable among the hotel guests. This was our routine for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. So I’m getting tanner, little by little. (In case anyone was wondering). Other recent highlights were a Saturday night out with the Silver Wind crew, to see the Vegas! The Show at the Saxe Theater and then Penn and Teller with Peter and Anastasia on Sunday night. Vegas! The Show was a lot of fun, and just enhanced the whole Las Vegas thing with my new friends. It was a great night all together, with some of my new friends clueing us in on the all the little hidden Las Vegas hotspots. Penn and Teller was silly and fun – Penn was so tall, 6’7″! I’ve been having such a great time with my cast mates. And we’re even trying to get into shape together! Tomorrow morning is Day 2 of my attempt at the workout “Insanity.” I love doing it also because two of my former co-workers from The Ride are IN the video. That’s got to be motivation right?
Now the one thing I absolutely wanted to share were some pictures from our early morning photo shoot this week at Red Rock. It was a beautiful landscape for our group pictures, and made me want to organize a little hiking group out there to take advantage of this picturesque location. Come on you guys, city girl needs to get her hike on!
So there are 24 of us total, the six in the above picture are on my ship, the Silver Wind. On the top left is Peter (my buddy from NYC and my soon-to-be-roommate on board), then Krystle from Georgia, Kathleen from Los Angeles, Jeff from Indiana, then on the bottom next to me is Paul from Los Angeles. I LOVE my cast so much, we are going to have a great time on board. We are all looking forward to working on our ‘songbook’ show which is featuring the music of Billy Joel. I just placed an order for the a cappella arrangements of “And So It Goes” and “For the Longest Time” and we plan to work on those on our own time to throw them into the mix. These guys are amazing!
Okay enough for now. I need to get my beauty rest before an early morning Insanity session.
Thanks Ashley. You promised and you delivered. I am so happy for you that you are having so much fun, have that for a job and get paid for it all at the same time. What could be better?
