Reason #374 why I have the best husband ever: he agreed to see Hello, Dolly! with me at Century II. How many husbands indulge their wives in this way? Seriously? I think the typical husband would have found an excuse to get out of it. “Why don’t you take one of your friends?” some would say. Not Brian. Why? Because he is the best husband ever.
Music Theatre Wichita completed another awesome season. This year the lineup consisted of Aida; Disney’s My Son Pinocchio; Billy Elliot; Big Fish; and Hello, Dolly! I only got to see the last two shows and they were both fantastic. Though, Big Fish was by far my favorite of the two.
Last year I had the opportunity to watch the West Side Story with Brian and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with my little sister Nickira. Both shows were great too. The 2016 lineup is fantastic:
Brian and I have been very impressed with the shows we’ve seen. That, and I actually want to see all of these, so we’re considering season tickets next year.
Except, tickets are kind of pricey. It’s going to cost us about $500 to get our season tickets for next year. If you would like to donate to the cause of bringing more culture into our lives, you may do so here. Think of it as an anniversary present. Or, you could also think of it as a birthday present to me. After all, my birthday is coming up in a couple of months. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and support. You guys are the best!
He’d been wanting a new laptop for a long time now since his old laptop started going on the fritz. It took forever for him to decide what kind he wanted though. To make it super challenging for Santa, this guy didn’t make up his mind until the Friday before Christmas. Seriously.
So I quickly ordered his present. The web site told me that the expected delivery date would Christmas Eve. Guess what, it arrived one day early so he was already playing with his new laptop by Monday night.
I knew that he wouldn’t let me wrap the new laptop because he’d want to unbox it immediately so I also got him Bond 50: The Complete 23 Film Collection with Skyfall as a bonus surprise gift that way he’d have a present to open from me on Christmas Day. I think he was really surprised because he thought he was just getting a new laptop and that was it.
I think he really likes his bonus gift. We’ve already made plans to watch a Bond movie every Friday beginning next year. As long as we don’t miss any weeks, we should finish watching all the movies mid-year. But, you all know how busy we are, at least we have the whole year to watch the entire collection just in case.
I already know that we’re going to miss one Friday within the first month since I’m going to be in LA for the Zumba Instructor Conference. As long as we get to watch the whole collection before 2014 is up, I’ll be happy.
I hope you enjoy your Christmas presents. I love you!
I always love getting presents from Red Envelope. It doesn’t even matter what’s inside. LOL. I just love the beautiful red box and ribbon. The lovely packaging never fails to pique my interest and I eagerly anticipate what’s inside.
Nothing extravagant in the boxes this time — just our personalized Christmas stockings. It doesn’t matter what you get really. I’ve never gotten anything from Red Envelope that I didn’t like. The best part is that you can get 10% cash back from Ebates for every Red Envelope purchase. If you’re not a member of Ebates and if you’ve never purchased anything from Red Envelope, you’re totally missing out.
Brian and I got PlasmaCars for Eli and QQ for Christmas. We originally found these at one of the local toy stores for $65, but I actually found them cheaper on Amazon. That’s why I love, love, love Amazon!
Anyway, we only got one for QQ at first but then they actually work great for bigger kids as well (even I enjoyed riding around in it at the store) so we decided to get one for Eli also. We figured it would be more fun if they had two of them so they could race each other. Luckily they come in a variety of colors so we got a different color for the second PlasmaCar. That way they can tell their cars apart.
After Brian assembled the cars, he took each of them for a spin. He just couldn’t resist. LOL. These things are so fun we even considered getting some for ourselves. Seriously. Who knows. Maybe Santa will get us each our own PlasmaCars for Christmas also.
Santa, if you’re reading this, I would like the Zumba green and purple PlasmaCar please. Thank you!
Dad brought his new airboat over this morning and tested it out in our pond. At about the 2:50 mark you’ll see video footage of the airboat in action. It goes pretty fast. Brian got to play with it some this morning. Now he wants to make one too. I told him that if everyone makes one we can host an annual race! LOL.
P.S. Brian thinks he can make one, but he’s not as crafty as dad. His birthday is just around the corner, though. Here’s one that I thought of getting for him but can’t now that we’ve bought a new mattress. I’m broke.
Anyone want to get this for Brian?
