Girls Night Out

Last night was the redemption of my Mother's Day Gift......Girls Night OUT!



The evening begins with a fabulous dinner at the Bamboo Club on Mill....

Then we head south a few blocks to Gammage where we enjoy this:




The music was wonderful...Eliza Doolittle had a fabulous voice...Alfie Doolittle stole the show-along with Freddy........Thanks girls-it was an awesome evening.

Some interesting behind the scenes facts about last night:

*The thermometer in my car registered 115 degrees when we returned to the parking garage at 10:30 pm. You will be relieved to know that as soon as we exited the parking garage-the thermometer dropped to 103 degrees....AT 10:30 PM!!!! (We asked ourselves numerous times again, why do we live here??)

* My shock and horror when the waitress discussed the alcoholic drinks available with my 14-year old daughter!!! I promptly told her she was underage and we don't drink anyway.

* Imagine the sight of 5 grown women-plus one half-grown woman running as fast as our heels would let us through the halls at Gammage because the show had started.

* I am trying to repent of the desire to smack the 400 pound man in front of me who was looking at his playbill right in my line of vision the whole 2nd act!

*Fried spinach tastes like nothing.

This is a bold question since I have never seen you in person--are you losing weight? You look very svelte amidst those beautiful girls. Not that is matters--we are not our bodies....

I just found your blog and hope you don't mind if I come back and lurk sometimes.

Looks like you had a fun evening.

Great picture Marilyn. You look awesome! I so love a girls night out with my sisters.
I watched that video on food storage. I so wish I had a basement! Food storage is very important to me and I'm so unprepared. There has been no focus on that since we moved out here. I'll just have to do it on my own.
