So we trekked to Seattle this weekend, again! It's becoming a monthly habit for the hubby and I that we thoroughly enjoy. I've made it abundantly clear to him how much I detest living in the town we live in. Because of work and family, he finds it unfathomable to even consider moving. I, on the other hand, feel as strongly about the prospect of spending the rest of my life living in this town. So, as a compromise, we've agreed to spend at least one weekend a month out of town. When time, money and circumstances allow it, I intend to start taking longer trips out of state, and even out of the country. In May, I am going to Nicaragua. I cannot begin to say how excited I am about it!

This past weekend I spent Saturday shopping for a wedding dress with my future daughter-in-law. The girl is so beautiful, inside and out, and I cannot wait for her to marry my son! I was honored she invited me to go with her and her mom and two of her bridesmaids. I met up with my hubby later and we stayed the night in Seattle.

On Sunday we went to the Paramount Theatre and watched River Dance. It was so fun and so amazing! I've heard this is the last time the show will be touring in the United States, but I'm not sure if that's accurate or not. No matter, I'm just glad I got to see it. This was also the first time I've ever been to the Paramount Theatre. What a beautiful building!

Spending time with my hubby is always a treat for me. He works long hours and generally doesn't get home from work until around 7:00 or 7:30 p.m. Spending time with him AWAY is even better!

Congrats on Dales engagement. I saw Lord of the Dance at the Key Arena when I was younger and I thought it was amazing so I am sure River Dance was just as great.
