Chicago in Anchorage
This past weekend I went on a girls trip to Anchorage to watch the broadway show, Chicago. 5 of us lifelong friends went-Jenny, Adelia, Balika, Mary Jane and myself. Balika got the idea for the trip early last fall, after she saw that Chicago was coming to town. We thought that February was a good time for a little Anchorage retreat. Five of us flew over to Anchorage, stayed in a hotel room together, did some shopping, went to a dinner at Marx brothers and enjoyed the show. We met up with Jess. R and Meghan K. in Anchorage for the show as well.
The show was fabulous-incredible dancing, acting and music. Packed crowd and lots of laughs.
At some point during the weekend, we realized that the whole Kodiak group was born and raised in Kodiak together! We all went to college and made our way back to Kodiak over the years. What a great group of gals. Such good people and friends.
Mary Jane, Jenny M, Adelia M, Balika and myself as we head out to dinner.

In the photo where Mary Jane is in the middle of Jess and Meghan-they are helping Mary Jane walk in her new 5 inch (thats correct-5 inch!!!) heels. We were in a bit of a rush to get from the restaurant to the performing arts center, but Mary Jane was agreed to make the trek with assistance! It was quite funny. MJ has high-heel walking down to a science!!
The ladies at the performing arts center. We were in a balcony.
After the show. The girls laughed at my fur gloves--but it was Fur Rondy weekend AND they kept my fingers warm! (and they go well with a pink purse-right? Southern California meets up with Fur Rondy?!
