I Love This Guy

Mr bird took me to the theater and out to dinner last night.
We got all dolled up and had a fantastic time.
We saw Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol.
We went with our fabulous book group friends and some great family.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Seeing dad very happy and in love
  • Taking up 30+ chairs in the theater
  • Seeing the little girls in their fanciest dresses
  • Having a teenager come up to us and ask if we were in the play
  • Feeling like a princess with my handsome prince (what can I say, I'm still a dreamer!)
  • "God bless us everyone!"
  • The 5 year old next to me climbing on her mommy's lap because the ghost of Marley was a little too real with the strobe lights and smoke machines
  • Yes and No
  • Mr Bird admitting that he loves to be the center of attention (we all knew that one!)
  • 10 degrees outside and wearing heals on the icy pavement

  • Trying not to spill food on the fancy dress
  • Trying not to eat too much so I would not get bloated and have the bodice pinch me in half
  • Going to Chuck-A-Rama in a ball gown
  • Yes, I said Chuck-A-Rama
  • Seeing one of the guys, Bret, in our group wandering around the huge buffet looking at all the scrumptious food with only pickled beets and sweet pickles on his plate
  • Eating too many desserts
  • My beautiful friend Lara who is 6'1" wearing 2 inch heals and explaining that sometimes she wears 3 inch heals if she really wants to make sure she's the tallest person there
  • Going home with my date and climbing into bed with him instead of leaving him at the front porch
