Girls Night Out... in One Week!

We have begun the countdown!

In one week we will be attending the Lord of the Dance Concert(Irish musical & dance) at the Wheeling Civic Center and we can hardly wait. It's going to be a wonderful girls night out.

A few months ago my sister-in-law Crys and I decided to do something a little different for Mother's Day this year. We bought tickets to take our mothers to this show on April 28th at the Wheeling Civic Center.

This of course, will be a Mother's Day present to ourselves also. It has been years since I have been to anything like this. I believe the last concert I went to was with my husband about 5 or 6 years ago. We went to the Capital Music Hall to see Kenny Chesney.
The last time I went to see the Wheeling Symphony was probably close to 20 years ago and I love to hear music like that. However, if I ask my husband to go to something like this with me then I just get that "yeah right" look from him.

So, this is going to be awesome!

A chance to do something that I haven't done in years, give my Mom a fun night out and hopefully create a long-lasting memory for my daughter to cherish.

It sounds wonderful. I still have great memories of plays I shared with my mother, including things we saw together 40 years ago. I don't remember most of the gifts I bought her, but do remember seeing "Harvey" with James Stewart and Helen Hayes. Had a job at the college library and saved up my 1.40/hour to buy the tickets. Still one of my favorite memories.
