We Zig When They ZAG- Valentines Date Night



Hubby and I hate the whole Valentines Day, price fix, crowded nightmare of February 14th. We avoid it at all costs because it makes us feel like hamsters on the Hallmark wheel of fake love. So instead we went out last night for Valentines day, so the night could be about us!
I had gotten us tickets six months ago for the greatest guy ever, GEORGE BENSON.



I love me some George, but he did a tribute to Nat King Cole and sounded exactly like him. It was amazing! The LA philharmonic even played behind him. Later he went on to "Masquerade", "Gimme the Night", and of course "On Broadway". The Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA (pictured above) is amazing. It is so worth paying to see something there. The acoustics are the best I have ever experienced and the design is mesmerizing. It looked like the inside of a ships hull.

Anyhoo, George had us up dancing and the whole place was boggeying down. Don't you just love that?

To top off the great night Hubby made "Daddy Pasta"( chicken and asparagus penne in a cream sauce) YUM and gave me this!



Remember how I wanted it as part of my Yellow for Spring look? Thanks Hubby!!!!

Sounds perfect to me! I am so not for VDay as it is. I always tell DH that I do not need a reason to tell him I love him.

Fabulous bracelet! Good man!

I agree. Don't get me wrong, I love to celebrate and it used to be a huge deal to me to go out, but now we do our own thing and go out when we want. I love the bracelet!

Love the bracelet! Yeah, I agree. We went out the weekend before for dinner and had a lovely time. Then on V-day itself we just had dinner at home (we did eat in the dining room though!)

I agree. I prefer going out the night before also. Can be so much more intimate. And, dead as many people are going out the next. Looks like a fun outing. Love the bracelet, so colorful.

Sounds like a wonderful VDay! Hubby and I also don't get into VDay, we generally do dinner out on a different night. Beautiful bracelet!

Have a great week!
