My Fab Weekend: Part One



A Certain Very Nice Man (Yes!  He is still around!  Can you believe it?) and I got all dressed up this past weekend and had a fabulous night out in Los Angeles.




We went to the Music Center to see Mozart's Don Giovanni.  It was the man's idea to wine me and dine me and take me to this fabulous place.  I had never seen an opera before and didn't expect I would be swept away by it.




Even before we went into the building though, I knew it was going to be a special night.  We ate a fabulous meal at a great restaurant and then watched the fountains outside against the sunset.




This small town country girl from Kansas discovered she actually liked the opera!  Hey Mikey!

Here's to new experiences and the people who bring them to us!

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Betty, I'm so happy for you. I LOVE your outfit. Especially the jacket! very classy ~

When my husband and I got married he insisted on buying his tuxedo stating that he wanted to own it so that he could take me to the opera every year for our anniversary. We live 45 minutes outside of Manhattan so its certainly doable.

This past August we celebrated our 10th anniversary (my 3rd marriage, his 1st). We have yet to make it to the opera but the other day I made him try on his tux and it still fits him.

So nice to see the smile on your face. It made me smile too.

(I'm still digesting the fact that Betty is not your real name)

Sounds like a great night. I've never been to the opera but I'd like to try it someday.

Alison said...

I am a little dismayed you had "a fabulous meal at a great restaurant," and that's all you have to say about it!??

Oh yeah, and yay for the opera and stuff. Whatever.

:D

Hello Betty, I am back from my blog break and it seems you are really living again, looking gorgeous doing it.;) For someone who has been to hell and back - all I can say is - well done, life always works out if we never give in.;)
Have a great rest of the week,

And you captured some beautiful photo memories, too!

Mimi said...

Good for you! The photos look like a lovely evening.
I got into opera last year, through my daughter and the screenings of Met Live in hD; absolutely love it now, don't know how it escaped me before. Don Giovanni is a fab first one to see!
Here's to new experiences and the people who bring them to us!

Opera has been a part of my life for a very long time. Last night we had a date night eating out and then watching the TSO's version of Die Fledermaus. It was such a fun piece, not tragic like so many are.

Daisy said...

You look gorgeous!! I'm so glad to hear you had such a lovely time. :)

The first opera I went to was a total dud (Don't EVER go see Nixon in China). I was con into going again and loved the second one I went to (forgot the name of it). Now, when I'm asked to go, I go especially when it's on their dime ;o)

Leanne said...

SOOOOO cool! You look gorgeous. Here's to "a certain very nice man" . . . You deserve to be wined and dined, and wined and dined some more! hugs!

SueAnn Lommler said...

I've been wondering if the Certain Very Nice Man was still around. I'm glad to learn he is. :) Sounds like you had fun!! I've never been to an opera either, but Fiance is very insistent that we will go one day. I'm glad CVNM wined you and dined you for a fun evening. :)

I'm so glad you're enjoying life again - what a lovely evening you sound to have had - I'm glad you enjoyed the opera - sometimes a production is good, sometimes less so - as with so much else in the world! You looked stunning:)

You look beautiful! Your smile makes me feel so happy, knowing that you're happy! What a great time it looks like!
