How I Spent My Spring Break...



















WHY would I do THIS ↑ on spring break???

BECAUSE.....

I did this!!! ↓





















Yes, I sent my boys away!!! Can you believe it? What kind of a mother would send her babies away on Spring Break WITHOUT HER???




Only a very WICKED one that had tickets to THIS ↓


















I confess I really felt bad sending them on that plane to Arizona to visit their cousins WITHOUT ME, but I had the Wicked tickets since August and at the time didn't realize it was going to be spring break. Taylor had been bugging me relentlessly to let them go for Easter and I finally caved, even though it would be the first Easter I had ever spent away from them! Wah!!! When we found out Dave's other sister was also going, we felt better about sending them since they would be on the same plane.


WICKED WAS WICKED!!!

I loved it so much!!!
























We went with our friends The Ashdowns. Before the show we went to eat at one of our all time favorite restaurants ever...THE MANDARIN!

Oh soooo delish!!!




























Creme' Brulee'

Mmm... DIVINE!






We had some other fun besides just painting, eating out and attending fantastic plays with great friends...we also met up with some of our oldest friends (well THEY are NOT old - just our friendship!) Mike and Sabrina. We have known them for 20 years from when we were still in medical school. They were in our apartment complex and we got to be good friends over the years. It had been way too long since we had seen them!






















It was lonely without the boys, but at least I had THIS GUY to keep me company!!!

Where did you see Wicked? (I've been wanted to see it.
I LOVE Creme Brulee.

I'm sure your boys had a great time.

Looks like you had a great Spring Break. I bet your son was happy with his newly painted room.

I bet Wicked would be wicked. I love the theater!

Oh, and that darn Creme Brulee made me hungry. I adore Creme Brulee!

I am jealous! I hate painting, and you make it look so easy. I have to cover the floor with tons of plastic or it looks like I've painted the floor. Pass on those tips. I am so glad you got to have fun also. Hope to see you soon.

I'm so jealous! I want to see Wicked! I guess until then I'll just have to act the part. ;-)

How fun to see "Wicked"! I have heard great things about it. Looks like a great Spring break.

I am one of those odd people who enjoys painting. It's relaxing.

I can see I must get tickets to see Wicked! I think I am the only one that hasn't seen it yet!

Why was your son dressed up like Captain Jack?

Lucy said...

You lucky dog. I want to see that so bad. I heard it was in SL. If I didn't have Southwest Airlines hangover, I'd go up just to see it.
