I'm really looking forward to this weekend! The week has been better than the last all the way around, and anticipating plans with great friends helps boost the mood, too.
One of my friends from my "Trauma Moms" group (that went to Orlando every year, though our "house" has branched off on it's own this year) is going to be in Seattle with her family this weekend, and another friend and I are going down to spend a day with her. We'll have girl talk, wander through IKEA, have a nice dinner... What a great way to shake off daily life and just have FUN!
Add to that a Broadway show... I've mentioned my one "splurge" each year, that I buy with my tax return is season tickets to 2 theatres in Seattle. I've seen the most amazing shows!!! Even when I'm totally broke... I've always got my theatre tickets, and they bring me joy.
This weekend, it's The Lion King! I've heard such great things about the show, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. It doesn't hurt that I'll have a handsome man friend on my arm! haha. I have several great friends that enjoy the theatre ALMOST as much as I do, and though it's always hard to decide who to take to each one, (especially when my kids are begging to go, too, and I only have one extra ticket) Then trying to match up schedules can be a pain, too... but sharing it with a friend that I enjoy spending time with makes a show twice as good. (One friend in particular LAUGHS LOUD, and I can't tell you how much that adds to the fun!)
The friend joining me for Lion King accompanied me to Monty Python's Spamalot last month, too... though he's the sleepy type (as I can be that late at night, and after the long drive down), so I'll be making sure we both have plenty of caffiene to keep us awake! I HATE dozing off during a show that I am really enjoying!!!
Hope you all have a great weekend, too!
