After brunch mom, Brooke, and I poked around my mom's old stomping grounds, stopped by shops my Nana used to love, splurged on Christmas decor, perused cute neighborhoods, and ate a yummy lunch. It's so fun to spend girl time together like that and I really kept them up north much longer than I should have, but can you blame me?
I got home around 4:00 and figured on this "brisk" (hey it was in the 50's) December night I'd put on some thick socks, make a cuppa tea and curl up on the couch with a good book. Then I got a call from my mom that my aunt was going to the Ahmanson Theatre that night to perhaps get into a FREE showing of Peter & the Star Catcher...and, well, that sounded pretty awesome to me. So instead of putting on PJ's, I called Dave and we made plans to run down to the theatre when he got home to see if maybe we could get in. Dave got home by 6:15, we were out the door by 6:25, and to the theatre by 7:20 - we won't comment on how fast we drove...and then we ended up getting FREE orchestra seats! FREE TICKETS! To a completely great production.
It was worth it.
So, it turned out to be a pretty great Wednesday - topped off with a HUGE, fluffy, white Christmas tree outside the theatre with ornaments almost as big as my head. What more could you want out of your weekday night? Not much my friends, not much.
