My Wicked Weekend




You may recall that a couple months ago my sweet, yet forgetful husband failed to remember a certain special day commemorating the blessed day of my birth. It happens, I know. He has a lot on his mind. I now know that I may need to email him some important dates so they can be plugged into his Outlook Calendar and be more easily remembered. Anyhoo, I made out like a bandit! I got a nice romantic dinner out of it, an Aerosmith guitar hero game, and last but not least, a romantic weekend away with my man. (It looks like he made out pretty well too!)



He bought 2nd row tickets to see Wicked at the Orpheum in San Fransisco and we spent a quiet night at the Hilton with a lovely view of a fog draped Golden Gate Bridge. The play was spectacular! We could see all of the facial expressions AND the spit that occasionally flew out of the actors mouths! I loved it! I am already planning to take my girls to see it later this summer! We had a great time eating out, have you ever had Dim Sum? Have you ever eaten it in China Town? Fun Stuff!



I think he has paid up now, so I will let him off the hook for his oversight. I love you, Ben!

That would do it! It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. I'm glad you got to see wicked. I have been wanting to see that for a little while now but haven't yet gotten the opportunity. You look amazing!

You two are so cute! I've been wanting to go see Wicked, too! We definitely should get together when I get home and have a little play date for the kids so I can dish on what all has been going on!

Somebody was looking hot in San Fran.
Aaron needs to take a lesson on this one - but it was Mother's Day he fell flat on, not my birthday.

So glad to hear that he made up for his silly forgetfulness. You look quite cute there Ms. Emily. I'm glad you had a fantastic time...much deserved! I'm forcing Kyle to go In Sept. ..no front rows here. Cheap and easy, that's how we roll. XO

You look so tan, and skinny! And where did you get that cute shirt?! It looks like Ben really stepped it up and the late birthday presents! Good job Ben!

Betsy said...

One word: JELL-US!! You look amazing! What a fun getaway. I need to stop reminding Klint about those important days and then make him pay up. :) So glad you had a great time!

just found your blog. we have 6 also. Love your picture by the bridge. That fog is perfect. Wow. I have gotten some goo dpics of that bridge, but that one rocks.
Fun weekend.
I need to do a make-up bday for my hubby, maybe SF. His bday kind of flopped.
Anyway, love your blog and family. Hope you don't mind if I stop by sometimes.

You guys are so adorable! Jason and I are going to see Wicked in September. I have to admit Jason is more excited than I am, I'm worried it will not be good, but after your review I'm looking forward to it. =)

Well, if you must be forgotten at least Ben is good at making up for it. What a fun weekend! And can I say you look fabulous? You do.

I wish my trip had not been so fast so we could have met up. Maybe next time.

Hey, what's going on? Where've you been? Sorry I never did call you back. I am terrible at that. I hope you are good!
