Happy New Year!!!
Hey Everyone! Wow, I can't believe it's already New Year's Eve. These past couple of days have been bittersweet because 2013 was so good to me, but I'm super excited to see what 2014 has in store! Being a performer isn't the easiest thing in the world and I feel so lucky that I was able to do what I love and work with fun, fabulous people along the way. And doing this blog has brought me so much joy on top of all of that! Here are a few highlights from this past year:
That last one didn't happen, it was just in my dreams of course, but hey, maybe in 2014 I'll make it a reality! Aziz, if you're reading this: call me! Hahahahaha! Thank you so much to all of you who have stopped by to take a look at a day in the life of Apples The Mule. I appreciate the support so very much and I promise ya I'll keep it coming in 2014! Happy New Year!!!
All I Want For Christmas...
Hey You Guys! I think this video pretty much speaks for itself. I hope everyone is having a relaxing couple days before Christmas and if anyone wants to get me a last minute present this video will help you figure out what - hahahaha!
Hey Guys! How is everyone doing this week before Christmas? I'm doing great! As I mentioned before, I'm performing in a production of Gypsy up at my alma mater this week. We had our second show last night and it has been fab so far! Thanks to everyone who braved the cold weather to come out and see us, we have 5 more performances so get your tickets before it's too late!
Today I want to share with you a video of me singing a medley of Christmas songs. I hope it helps get you in the holiday mood! (a glass of spiked egg nog does the trick too - hahahaha!) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
A Visit to Santa
Hey Everyone! How has your week been? I have been fab but busy! The couple weeks before Christmas are always nuts for this little mule and this year is no exception. I have a really cool post planned for sometime soon though so make sure you keep checking the blog! I bet a lot of you have a photo similar to today's Throwback pic. It's the good old visit to Santa! Here's my version:
I forget how old I was here, maybe 7 or 8? My Mom loves Christmas and it was a big tradition for us to get dressed up & go take a picture with Santa. I somehow managed to match my dress to the seat that year. Cool, huh? Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend. I'll be busy with the final rehearsals for the production of Gypsy that I'm starring in at my old alma mater, the Sheboygan Conservatory. I blogged about that here: http://www.applesthemule.com/1/category/gypsy/1.html If you're in Sheboygan, Wisconsin next week be sure to check it out! And if you're not - lucky you, we're looking at highs in the 20's. Yikes! Bye for now!
Hey there, Happy Throwback Thursday! I mentioned on Monday that ice skating is something I like to do in the winter time, but I didn't mention that I actually used to be a competitive figure skater when I was younger. For a while I thought I might try for the Olympics, but then I took a theater class at school and decided that's what I wanted to do instead. But every winter I still love lacing up the old skates and getting out there on the ice and practicing my figures. Bye for now & have a great day!
Kardashian Christmas Card
Hey Guys! How's it going? Check out the new Kardashian Christmas card, isn't it wacky? The girl in the middle looks especially great in my opinion....
Hahaha, ok, you caught me, I totally photoshopped myself in. I heard that Kanye West used to photoshop himself into their Christmas cards before he was with Kim so I decided to do the same. Here's the entire photo below:
It's fun to see myself all dolled up next to this most glamorous of families, but to be perfectly honest I think the card is pretty weird. I'm a little more traditional when it comes to my holidays and this card doesn't exactly scream "Christmas" to me. It kind of looks like a nuclear bomb got dropped on the Vegas Strip and they just sauntered up and posed in the wreckage. But hey, to each his own. I'll be sending out holiday cards this year myself but they're not quite finished so you'll have to check back in on the blog to see the Apples 2013 Holiday Card. Happy Hump Day everyone!
It's the Most Wonderful Time....
Hey everybody! How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was fab but since it came late this year I'm already gearing up for Christmas. Maybe you thought I was kidding when I mentioned in my last post that you were gonna see a lot of Christmas posts but I sure as heck wasn't! I'm going to make it my goal to get you in the holiday spirit too, so I'll start off with some photos of some of the things I always look forward to during the holidays:
I love decorating the Christmas tree and seeing a big ol' pile of presents underneath it.
I love sitting by a fireplace......
and snacking on some delicious holiday treats!
I love ice skating and building snowmen.....
And I LOVE it when this guy shows up! Well, these are just a few of my favorite things about the holidays, but don't worry, I'm just getting started - hahahaha! And just one more thing for today, I wanna wish someone a happy birthday. He's a very special guy, almost like a brother to me. He's not a big fan of birthdays so this might make him mad but I gotta do it anyway: Happy Birthday Chris, I'm thinking of you and I hope you have a wonderful day!
