Happy Anniversary

Jared and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary on Wednesday. I didn't really want to go anywhere. At this point, with this pregnancy, by mid afternoon/evening I am out of energy. I could probably fall asleep by 8pm if I was allowed. Jared had planned this evening for weeks and made me go out. I am glad he did. We had a great time. We went out to dinner and then to the Denver Center for Performing Arts and took in the show Quilters. When Jared mentioned Quilters I actually thought he was a little crazy. Why would he want to see a show about quilts? Plus the whole place was probably going to be filled with charming, little old ladies. We could just as well go to church. When I asked him about it he said there aren't many shows on Wednesday evenings and he wanted to go to a show. The last time we went to a show was in college. We saw Les Miserables. That was great show.

Back to Quilters. We arrived at the theatre and as we were walking in there were quilts hanging from the ceiling everywhere. And, of course, there were little old ladies and their quilted purses filling the lobby. We even saw a couple we had met at our church. See? It's as I was predicting. The only thing I was wrong about was the show itself. It was a fabulous show! It was about pioneer women at the turn of the century and the history of quilts. It was quite intriguing. The singing was good too. This show went beyond my expectations. If it comes to your area you should think about seeing it. Lauren, it actually made me think of you when you told me about your quilting experience. And now I may be hooked on these shows. It may have to become a yearly thing for us. Although, I hear Wicked is supposed to be really good too. That's coming to Denver in October. Hint, hint Jared.

Three cheers for Jared! Hip, hip, hooray! I've not heard of this show but now I'm totally intrigued. Glad you had a wonderful evening.

Happy Anniversary! We love and miss you guys.

Happy Anniversary Jan and Jared! (You are on my calendar!)
I also am hooked on Broadway musicals after seeing Lion King and Wicked. Wicked is an amazing show, do see it if you can. Wishing you many more anniversary surprises!

Quilters originated in Denver 26 years ago. I think they have just brought it back this year. While I don't think it is in the same class as Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera or Wicked I still really enjoyed it.
