Review: Portland Center Stage's Dreamgirls

Sorry for the light blogging lately! It's been a busy couple days + there are some change coming to Love, Rachel (!!!) so I've been working closely with the one and only Bobbi from Ready to Blog so stay tuned. 

One I couldn't hold back was, my trip to Portland Center Stage last week to see Dreamgirls. As you might know if you've been reading for awhile, I love PCS. I've gone to Othello, Lizzie and interviewed one of the leads from a play here on the blog. I think the theater is the perfect night out. PCS is stunning with it's sparkling ceiling and intimate stage. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. Dreamgirls was no exception. I am going to say it, this was the best show I've seen at PCS...by far. The talent was UNREAL. I was so blown away by the voices on the stage. I caught myself with the biggest smile on my face for the whole show. I also took D to the show, and he loved it too! We were both so impressed by it all. You need to see this show. It's perfect for a girls night out, date night, or special occasion. Lucky for you I have a discount code for you too! See the bottom of the post for more details...


Here are some of the production photos from the show.

Drew's 30th at the Beach!

D turned 30 this year. Officially old :) He and I had been trying to decide how to celebrate. He decided a trip to the coast was the right way to do it. We rounded up the troops and headed to Lincoln City. We Drew chose Lincoln City because there was a casino, ha which is probably good for a 30th celebration. We packed up the truck and headed west. 


The view from the house we rented wasn't half bad! 







We set up corn hole on the deck- perfect beach weekend activities. 





We walked to the beach for the sunset. 








The next day Claire + Nolan led us to a secret beach... I can't tell you where it was...or else.








We walked back to the beach in front of the house. Time for kites.









Drew is a bigggg fan of crab, so we decided to have a crab feed. These crabs were SOOOO delicious. I highly recommend trying this- it was so easy too! 










We hung out on the deck because the sun was setting and it was time for some birthday cake!! (cheesecake that is.)










It was a great weekend with great friends. A perfect way to cap of the 20's :)

Love, Rachel xo
