The Birthday that keeps on giving!

Date night’s don’t happen too often in this house. But we try to get out every once in a while to still enjoy ‘us’ time. For my 30th birthday (In December) Josh purchased us tickets to see Blue Man group. I was so excited to go I was sad it wasn’t sooner! Last week as we were planning for the week ahead Josh mentioned we would have to get a sitter for Tuesday night and I’m racking my brain trying to remember why and he had to remind me of our tickets! Not that I forgot I just hadn’t realized it was here already! I was so excited 🙂

Thanks to my wonderful sister Sarah she spent the night and watched the kids for us. I received several pics and videos of them laughing dancing and having a great time. They always enjoy it when aunt Sarah comes over. I’m grateful she was willing to take care of my two sick little kids – we’ve got some pretty bad stuff in this house lately, strep, ear infections, croup and now a cough that just wont go away – meanwhile the 10 month old has teething on top of it all.  Praying for everyone to start feeling better very soon! (Sarah even cleaned up the kids’ toys and cleaned bottles! A-mazing! Love you girl!)

Josh and I enjoyed dinner at White Star Ale house they have wonderful food and great beer on tap. We made it in time for happy hour so we enjoyed some half price beers the waiter picked out for Josh and I had the sangria. Now we are still focusing on our fit life and healthy life style so we tried to be super careful about what we ordered while indulging a little bit – after all it was my birthday…. Since this was technically my birthday gift we kept saying it was my b-day 🙂 its nice to have a birthday that keeps on giving.

At times I was in awe of the music (being a music nerd myself) and laughing at all the great skits. I also didn’t realize if you sat in the front couple rows you would need ponchos! Good thing we were on the top deck of the theater :). They pulled volunteer’s out the audience and everything it was such a great show and so happy we went! The best part was they did not allow anyone to have their electronic device out during the show to take pics / record etc. Its always so nice to be unplugged and enjoy yourself! When we were leaving we walked out to a beautiful coat of snow. Anyone who knows me I don’t typically say beautiful and snow in the same sentence. However it was sparkling and beautiful and I wasn’t driving 🙂 so it was beautiful. It was a perfect night out with my best friend. 30 isn’t so bad and I look forward to another 30+ years with my guy 🙂
