Yet another celebration.....

As you may remember this is birthday week, anniversary week, AND new church building celebration week......all this celebrating is making me joyfully tired!!! LOL......

Last night, the Mister and I went out on a date! Our children went together and gave us some tickets for Christmas......they gave us gift certificates to Carrabba's Italian Restaurant and to a local place called the Dessert Gallery (how can anything with Dessert AND Gallery in the name be bad)????? Also included in the gift package were two tickets to the theatre AND even a ticket for event parking! They thought of everything!
So last night we went out to eat here: ( I didn't notice until just now that there is a person trimming the greenery in the photo!!! but you get the idea!! )


After dinner we went to the theater downtown to see this! What a treat!! Our kids did good, don't you think????? And we're saving the Dessert Gallery for our next celebration, probably when we've had a SALAD for dinner!!! LOL

What a fun night!!! Don't you just love doing special things like that, especially when you are treated by others. What a great gift! I am one of the few people who have never seen Le Mis. I hear it is amazing. We don't have the Dessert Gallery here, but that has my name written all over it. I LOVE desserts and have even been known to order my main entree, based on what I wanted to order for dessert. LOL!!
Praise God that you have such joyful things to celebrate in your life!! Now this week, we have the beautiful Easter season and the most awesome gift we could have ever received to be thankful for!!! Love & blessings from NC!

What sweet kids! I love Carrabba's but only get to go on my birthday 'cause I've got one kid that hates Italian food. Can you imagine? Well glad YOU got to go(:

Sounds like a nice date. I can't believe you passed on dessert though. I never could have done that.
