starlight orchestra performance pictures!

now you all can see that i'm ACTUALLY in a show! (instead of just talking about how i'm performing this summer)

my friend lindsay, who is in the cast, had some of her friends take pictures of the show.... so this is courtesy of her!
thanks linds :)
DISCLOSURE: these are all action shots, so some of the faces may be a litttttle crazy.

this is my cast: GREG, ME, LINDSAY, and JOSH
aren't they just cute?? i love them. we all get along so well.

this is our opening number "Tuxedo Junction" (this is manhattan transfer singing it. we sound a little different but just because its a different arrangement, but pretty much the same song).

now these are our second outfits the dreaded GOWNS (haha they're hot, but they look great on stage). right here we're singing a little medley type thing of this song "Birdland" and then in transitions into all of our fun solo's we have.

and yes, we have one more dress.. this cute little light blue one. this me and greg singing "Sway With Me"
***might i add.. we have such amazing songs to sing!! oh my gosh i love them.***

this is our finale.. its two songs mixed together: "It Don't Mean a Thing, if it Ain't Got That Swing" and "Sing Sing Sing" (and these are only a FEW songs that we sing in the show... we have so much more jazzy classics. love it)

oh and did i mention that we drum too??!! :) this show is sooo fun! i never get sick of it.

love the music, love the band behind us, love the cast, love the costumes, love the park.... i just love it all :) couldn't ask for more.

bare essential make up

(very true)
so i converted to new make up.

my roommate (kinsey) and i went to sephora to test try some new make up, and bare essentials felt really good on my face, looked good on my face, and is, believe it or not, HEALTHY for my face!

only $60 for all this!! (originally $180)
i haven't spent this much money on make up, but seriously, this is the greatest thing that has happened since sliced bread.
i'm very pleased with my purchase and urge anyone who wants new make up to definitely try this. :)

happy father's day

a father is someone that... (my father at least)

makes sure you do what your mother says
holds back your hair when you are sick
lets you eat ice cream for breakfast
walks you down the aisle
gives you nicknames to make you feel extra special
isn't afraid to acknowledge the elephant in the room
has the voice of a lion
but the heart of an angel
makes up songs about your friends names
gets kicked out of your basketball game because he's yelling to loud
makes the best mix cd's
is always up for a good discussions
pops your toes
gets all the cracks out of your back
is the best golfer
is the biggest jokster in the world
gives you money if you rub his feet
farts at the dinner table
is the best bargainer (he always lowered the prices)
cooks the best krepes in the world
scares your date by simply cleaning off his gun
is good at everything he does
rubs his stubbly face on your cheeks
teaches you how to drive stick
makes his presence known
is always up for camping
isn't afraid to go up and talk to someone
lets you comb his chest hair
plays the guitar
writes songs about your mom
tells the best jokes
doesn't like wearing ties
falls asleep while watching golf
tickles you until you're about to pee your pants
scares your friends
obnoxiously squirts you with water
sits and plays with the kids for hours
is not afraid to throw you realllly high in the air
works extra hard
lets you cuddle with him
sings duets with you
makes an impression on everyone he meets
builds the best snowman's
teases you about everything
master's the "shoulder boppin" dance move
makes everything he eats look sooo good
gives you advice
makes you dream bigger then the stars
is filled with passion
loves you no matter what
tells you everythings gonna be okay
believes in you
and is always with you.

Starlight Orchestra

the CAST (singers and dancers of the show)
josh, me, gregg, lindsay

me and my good friend gregg (also my 'partner' in the show) rockin' to some 80's tunes while getting ready for our show!

probably the funniest thing that has EVER happened to me.

The Story:
Cami: "Hey guys, where is my wig? It was just here!"
Everyone: [looks around the room everywhere we can think of]
Cami: "Seriously guys, where is my wig, did you take it?"
Lindsay: "uhhh Cami? Look down."

can you believe that it landed perfectly like this?! hahaha SO FUNNY!!

disney's words of wisdom:01

when i was hanging out today, between my shows, we watched POCAHONTAS. (mind you... i was still on the clock for all this, so i was getting paid to watch pocahontas... haha not a bad job AT ALL i would have to say...)
but a lot of things stuck out to me that i though were SO GOOD.

this conversation:

Pocahontas: But Grandmother Willow, what is my path? How am I ever going to find it?

Grandmother Willow: Your mother asked me the very same question.

Poc: She did? What did you tell her?

GW: I told her to listen. All around you are spirits, child. They live in the earth, the water, the sky. If you LISTEN they will guide you.

Poc: I hear the wind.

GW: Yes. What is it telling you?

Poc: I don't understand.

GW: Que que na-to-ra
You will understand
Listen with your heart
You will understand
Let it break upon you
Like a wave upon the sand
Listen with your heart
You will understand

JUST AROUND THE RIVER BEND (love the lyrics)

What I love most about rivers is:
You can't step in the same river twice
The water's always changing, always flowing

But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the riverbend?

Waiting just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Just around the riverbend
For me
Coming for m

I feel it there beyond those trees
Or right behind these waterfalls
Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming
For a handsome sturdy husband
Who builds handsome sturdy walls
And never dreams that something might be coming?
Just around the riverbend
Just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Somewhere past the sea
Don't know what for ...
Why do all my dreams extend
Just around the riverbend?
Just around the riverbend ...

Should I choose the smoothest curve
Steady as the beating drum?
Should I marry Kocoum?
Is all my dreaming at an end?
Or do you still wait for me, Dream Giver
Just around the riverbend?

mmmm i just love it...

*all around you there are spirits. if you listen they will guide you.
*listen with your heart.
*just like the river is always changing and FLOWING... so are our lives... changing and flowing.
*what's around the riverbend? coming for me...

once again, thanks disney
