We kicked off the holiday season with a concert at the Schermerhorn. We started at Justin and Mindy's with bloody Mary's.
Well, when you are booking your tickets, you don't realize where the screen is going to be. This was a little disappointing, but they did have another tv set up near us so we could see better.
On the flip side, we had a perfect view of the orchestra. It was so fun to see who was doing all the little sounds in the movie. One of my favorite parts was the opening of the movie was the Twentieth Century Fox sound---so iconic---and awesome in person. Click on the link to refresh your memory. Anyway, this was just the beginning and it gave me chills! We had a great time.
And then on Wednesday, Nicky brought me this gorgeous poinsettia. It's huge! He does it every year--making a special trip to surprise me. He's moved back in to the #1 son-in-law spot.
Then, last night, Stephanie planned this family outing---the holiday lights at Cheekwood.
Cheekwood (our botanical gardens) had the trains going too. The whole thing was awesome and so festive. Plus, some amazing hot drinks and fire pits made it a really fun evening.
Mindy is showing her new pearl necklace that Justin gave her for her birthday. He wasn't with us as he had to work. We were all excited to got to Sportsman's for dinner--it had been quite awhile since I'd been. Unfortunately, it was a bad experience, so we won't be going back any time soon. Our food was terrible (only Stephanie and Mindy liked theirs) and the service was terrible. Still, it didn't put a damper on our fun evening.
There are plenty more things making me happy, but I'll save them for another day. What's making you happy these days?
