Surprise Date Night

Last night, the hubby surprised me with a date night! He had the whole night planned, even a babysitter for Big C. Now, parents of kids, even parents of four legged kids, you know how hard it can be during the week to find a few moments to yourself, let alone a whole evening. This was so special to me! However, if you know me, you know that I don't deal with secrets very well...that is, if the secret is kept from me. So, in true Lindsay fashion, I had to badger him about where we were going and what we were going to do. After leaving Big C with the babysitters...aka...Curt's parents...we headed off into the 'sunset' to eat dinner at......


We love this place! Both Curt and I love the food, drinks, and atmosphere of this place. We love to get a group of friends together and hang out here. Of course, it was also nice that it was just the two of us also. On the way to dinner, I continued to badger him about where we were going afterwards. I was convinced that we were going to see the movie "The Hangover." Which, I was kinda excited to go see. (Has anyone seen it? What did you think of it? I heard that it was hysterical!) Exasperated Curt reached under the seat, pulled out a big envelope, and handed it to me.
I got super excited...FINALLY... I was going to know what we were doing! As I opened it, I took a peak inside and saw that it was two tickets for....

I can not begin to tell you how excited I was!!! I think at one point, I even started to tear up! I had wanted to see Wicked in the past after reading the book, but the timing just never worked out before. Then, I didn't want to make Curt...aka....jock extraordinaire...sit through a musical...especially with as little leg room that most theaters have. My hubby threw all of that out of the window and got tickets for me!

I have to say, Wicked the musical was FABULOUS!!!! It captured my attention from the beginning when the flying monkeys were dancing on the stage, to Glinda's blonde comments, to Elphaba's green skin...amazing. Even jock boy liked it too! If you ever have a chance to go see it, I would highly suggest it!

It was a great evening, with even better company.

Yet, another reason why I have fallen in love with my husband all over again!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful evening with the hubby. It also sounds like you have a great catch, and shouldn't badger him too much when he makes surpise date nights!

  2. nice of him. Great idea!!!! The Hangover was really funny-you should go see it soon. :)

  3. How sweet of him to do that. What a nice guy. I wish that my boyfriend would buy me wicked broadway tickets new york, too bad he doesn't like theater shows. Oh well, maybe I should dump him.
