How 'Bout Those TONY AWARDS!

We really hope all of you were glued to the TV last night like we were.

I was actually flying home from an amazing trip to NYC! Turns out Virgin America is ridiculous and has live TV on the plane! I was seriously so happy. I laughed, I cried, I danced around all while my neighbor watched reruns on TBS. What was wrong with her!!??

ANYWAY! – The Tony awards are a great way to catch a glimpse of what is going on RIGHT NOW on Broadway. If you missed it – here's the really great opening number! Neil Patrick Harris is my hero.
