Recreating a Date
We attempted to recreate the night that we got engaged! We started with dinner at Avenue One, which is at the Hyatt. (okay, this is not the same restaurant, but that’s okay.) It is restaurant week in Boston, however we knew that we would be going for dessert later, so we ordered off of the regular menu. This may have been our downfall. Our reservation was at 6:30; we ordered about 6:50; our food came at 7:35! AHHH!! Our waiter and the manager recognized that this was an exorbitant amount of time and gave us 20% off of our bill. YAY FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE! I ordered the chicken pot pie.
We rushed out of dinner, to the Boston Opera House (which was luckily across the street!) to see MARY POPPINS!!
It was pretty amazing. We were sitting in the 6th row and could see all of the actors’ facial expressions. We also got to see/hear many of Bert’s little funny faces and side comments. I think he was our favorite role! My three favorite parts were:
- Feed the Birds – I absolutely love that song. So gorgeous!
- Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! – the dance was amazing. I think that we need to get someone on it to figure out the dance. Jeff? They spelled the word with their body!
- Step in Time – right before it started I leaned over to Matt and said “I feel a big tap dance number coming on!” Oh yeah! It was so great! And Bert danced on the wall and the ceiling. So awesome!
- Mary’s exit (okay that’s four parts, but this must be mentioned)
A great experience! I’d highly recommend it to anyone who loves fun musicals!
After the show, we headed to Finale for dessert. Matt ordered the cookie plate (with raspberry drink):
It was a great date. Somehow I didn’t end up with any extra jewelry, but that’s okay. I’ve got Matt 😀
The rest of the weekend
Of course, who doesn’t eat a bunch of cake the night before their first wedding dress fitting? Yeah . . . oh well. Good news? The dress is kind of big. Like if I took more than two steps it would have fallen down! I actually looked at my initial measurements. I have lost 1.5″ in my bust, 1.5″ in my waist, and 1″ in my hips. I just hope that they can bring it enough. See I don’t have hips to hold a dress up, so it has to be SUPER tight in the waist! We shall see!
Our other project of the weekend? I’ll give you a hint:
I’ll have a post on this later in the week!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Now I guess I have to go to bed. This is when I don’t like losing that hour!
