Starting the Holiday Cheer Early with Macy's + Santa + Misty Copeland

Christmas season is here. I feel some type of way about celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving but I cannot avoid it. The shopping plaza two blocks away from my condo already have their massive tree decked out and lit. So... I might as well join in on the fun! 

This Saturday my local Macy's store is hosting a huge ceremony to unveil the iconic window displays. I've tried to do the window thing in NYC and it's a madhouse. I'm too claustrophobic for all of that. So I'm pretty excited about the DC display because I think there will be less drama and I can see what the hype is all about. 

Saturday is going to be a fun-filled day. Starting with brunch downtown with my good friend. Bottomless, of course. Then we'll head over to Macy's early to grab a spot close to the front so I can see the awesomeness that is Misty Copeland up close. Yes, THE Misty Copeland, American Ballet Theater's featured soloist. If you don't know who Misty is, you betta ask somebody! The first time I saw Misty, she was on stage with Prince during one of his ballads. Maaaan, I did not appreciate the greatness I was witnessing at the time. I'm awake now! More recently, you may have remembered Misty from that bada$$ Under Armour commercial she filmed.  Her body is sick! 

Early next year Misty will make history as the first Black Ballerina to dance the lead role of Swan Lake at the the Kennedy Center. She's only performing for two nights and both of them nights are already sold out! 


Whose palms do I have to grease for a pair of tickets?! Can I start a Change.Org petition for the theater to add a third Misty show? I'mma be at that show. Somehow, someway. #ManifestThatIsh 

So yea.... I'm excited she'll be on the main stage alongside Fox News Anchor, Allison Seymour as they countdown to the big event. In addition to the window displays, there will be live performances by Ballou High School Marching band and the event will conclude with an appearance from Santa himself! Lawd, I wished my babies lived nearby. I would have loved to bring them with me to experience this.  Maybe I can FT my babies while I'm with Santa? Hmmm.... 

Once the outdoor concert is over, attendees can warm up inside the Macy's store with hot chocolate, live music and shopping events, including a meet and greet with Misty herself. I'm manifesting a selfie with her!
