Noah’s Ark Cakes FOREVER

January 20th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

The Warehouse theater in Greenville, SC sent me their Noah’s Ark Cake prop as a housewarming gift and I COULD NOT BE MORE THRILLED ABOUT IT.

You got your orangoutangs, you got your zebra’s —

YOU GOT YOUR GIRAFFES!

Just to toss this wish out into the universe, if every theater ever that does The Cake could send me their Noah’s Ark Cake once to production ends, so that I might someday fill an entire room with them, THAT WOULD BE MOST PLEASING, THNKS!

how to know you’re (happily) married

January 19th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

You find yourself at ******** show with coworkers ( an awesome / fairly innocent late night show with sexy dude dancers; innocent, because  male desire is dirty, and female desire is, you know, cute.)  You then find out that that you are seated in a prime lap dance seat. YOU ABRUPTLY STAND AND MOVE SEATS, AS THERE IS ONLY ONE LAP THAT YOU LIKE.

LOCATION, LOCATION (?)

January 15th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m off on a slightly last minute trip to cover set for an out of town shoot all week, and I’m fairly certain I cannot disclose the location as it might lead to spoilers, so I’ll just say I’m off to ********** where there will be lots of ******** and also ******** and probably some ******* and surely some ******** for lots of scenes in which ******** so basically just stay tuned for lots of vague, blurred out pictures of me with ******* and you know, also definitely *********.

PARADISE ALERT

January 13th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

While I am so sorry for everyone in Hawaii who rid the wave of this massively false alarm happened today, I’m just going to entertain myself the rest of the day by imagining people in bathing suits, lunging for pina coladas, crawling under patio furniture, careful so they don’t spill their drink.

THINGS (SHOES) = PEACE AND HAPPINESS

January 7th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m still not quite sure what the question is, but THESE GREEN VELVET SLIPPER HEELS THAT FOLD AROUND MY FEET LIKE ANGEL EARS ARE 100% THE ANSWER.

daily joys

January 5th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

It’s been a rough work week, and so to lift myself up, I’m choosing to focus on small, easily repeated, infinitely joyful pleasures, like how easy it is to make Morrison happy. Like this morning, while walking home from punishing myself by faking upper body strength at the gym:

Me (on phone): Hey, you want me to pick you up a breakfast burrito?

Morrison: F YEAH!!!!!!!

And when I return home, with said burrito:

Morrison: YES!!!! BREAKFAST BURRITOS!!!!!!!

Because: when you can’t please everyone, focus instead on pleasing the one person you know you always can.

unphotographable, that’s what you arrrreeee

January 2nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on Yesterday I said I was going to stop taking pictures with my phone: some pictures from my phone! Our new house is positioned for a pretty rad sunset view and a great yard from which to view it, so last night, we sat and took it in, or as Morrison likes to say, forced a moment. Even he, who is fairly anti-obsessive picture taking and sharing, had to take a few of his own, it was that stunning.

But the thing with sunsets is, the picture never does them justice, ever. The best use of your time really, is just take it in, let it humble you. OR OF COURSE, FILTER IT THROUGH YOUR WINE GLASS,

OR INCLUDE YOUR FEET.

MOMENT MADE (FORCED)
