All the ladies with a very happy Slick Nick!
What a day! I can’t believe my time on the couch for the contest has come and gone, but I’ll tell you, it was AMAZING! I feel like I’m in a dream – that was literally the greatest hour of my life (also probably the fastest hour of my life). Everything I’ve gotten to do over the last month has been magical and I wouldn’t trade this chance for anything! I hope you all thought I was the hostess with the mostess – I know I had an absolute blast! I can’t wait to cheer on my fellow 5, I wish them all the best of luck!
Here I am at Cat Country 98.1 - bright and early!!
As promised, I’m back to the blogging board
I figured, even though my official SFAS assignments are done for now, that doesn’t mean I can’t challenge myself to get a scoop! Over the last month or so you viewers have been getting to know us, but I want to get to know you guys better – so, for the next few days, I’m going to poll the faithful Rhode Show followers, as well as some of my own friends, to find out some of your favorite things.
Since it ’tis the season – I wanted to go with a holiday theme, and I decided to start with some favorite things to do around here to get you into the holiday spirit! I hope you all saw Michaela’s piece on The Santa Run, happening this Saturday morning in New Bedford! I asked people what some of their other favorites are, and here’s what they had to say!
A huge favorite for Rhode Islanders is Trinity Rep’s “A Christmas Carol”. I know growing up in Rhode Island I used to go on a school field trip to see the show every year! Personally I think it gets better and better, and it seems you guys agree!
Another ‘fan favorite’ performance is Festival Ballet’s “The Nutcracker”, which is going on this weekend at PPAC! I have to admit, I am biased when it comes to this performance, as I danced with Festival Ballet for many years growing up! They are such a great company, and the show is beautiful and fun for everyone year after year!
Something else people told me they love to do this time of year is an event the Top 5 get to partake in on Wednesday morning – Ice Skating! Even if you’re a klutz, it’s tons of fun to slip and slide around the ice! It’s a great date, a great family outing, and a great way to get some exercise! One of the perks of going at Kennedy Plaza is, of course, the lovely view of downtown providence!
Lots of people suggested the Roger Williams Park Zoo to me! Sadly, Santa already made his trips to the zoo this year (I really hope some of you got a chance to see him last weekend!) but it doesn’t mean the zoo isn’t a great place to visit this time of year! There are candy-canes and wintery wonderlands set up all over the park – and, here’s a sneaky little secret, the animals are a lot more social when the weather is a little cooler, even they can’t deny the Christmas spirit!
One more bit of holiday fun around the corner – this one I didn’t even know about until people started telling me – is typically a summer favorite. The city announced that on December 16th they’re doing a partial waterfire! I don’t know if we’ll have any snow – but I’m sure the river will look beautiful lit up on a Wintery night – I can’t think of a better reason to go out and enjoy the atmosphere! Providence has always reminded me of a Charles Dickens novel in the winter!
Those are just a few ideas I got from you guys! Now I want to hear even more! What are your favorite things to do in RI during the holiday season! And tomorrow, I want to write about favorite movies you watch this time of year, so fill me in on those as well! Leave me some comments and messages, because this inquiring mind wants to know!!!!!
