52 Weeks of ME- Week Forty-seven

Last Saturday was "Girl's Date Night!" and boy oh boy was my date a dream. ♥

Nov1911_0012ew

My Sugar Bear and I got all gussied up and headed off to see a local performance of the Nutcracker. We knew about 5-6 kiddos participating in the performance, so it was a real treat to see them in action. Sugar Bear didn't really know what to expect of the show, but I'm not sure it met her expectation. As we were driving away she said, "Mama, they should call that show 'dancing....dancing....dancing....and dancing some more'!" tee hee......she sort of wanted it to have some more acting, and less dancing, I think.

We headed out to dinner next, and had such a lovely time. The best part was when the shoes I was wearing completely and utterly fell apart. I hadn't worn them in 8 years, and apparently....the glue not longer wanted to hold. In the middle of the restaurant, the sole fell off one, and I had to rip the sole off the other, so that I wasn't completely lopsided. Sugar, and many of the patrons got a pretty good kick out of it. I took it in stride. If we can't laugh at ourselves.....life will be rough.

It couldn't have been a better evening. I'm so grateful for my wonderful daughter, and my blessed life.

We are going to see the Rockettes in a couple of weeks and I am afraid the kids are going to feel the same way. Hopefully they will enjoy it. You are absolutely right. Sometimes we just have to laugh at ourselves. I am glad you guys had such a lovely evening.

I've never seen the Nutcracker...I really should!

Glad you guys had a nice time - even with the shoe issues!
