Chris won tickets from our local jazz station a couple weeks ago to the Dave Koz and Friends Cozy Christmas concert at the Nokia Live theatre. We were stoked because A.) We are
geeks awesome and love jazz music B.) We love Christmas music. It's been playing in our house since July and C.) We won free tickets! Woo!
I had never been to staples center or the Nokia theatre so I was excited to play around downtown. I usually try to avoid LA unless it's for a TV show, farmers market or the Grove...I always forget how close we are to the big city, 45 minutes.
It was so beautiful there last night. Decked out for Christmas with an ice skating rink to boot. How fun!
I totally embarrassed my husband by playing the role of a tourist last night.
I told him I was taking pictures for all my Midwest friends!
See! Aren't you glad I embarrassed him for those 5 seconds? So pretty!
So, our date went like this:
Got to dinner at the Yard House and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. We talked about Christmas and I almost spilled the beans like 5 times sitting there because I can hardly contain myself!! We talked about Kate and how hilarious she is. We chatted some more about business and other things. We talked about how freakin gooshie Kate is....yadda yadda.
We leave for one on one time and all we do is talk about the babe!
After dinner we walked all of 30 feet to the theatre and got checked in. Put our wristbands on (we had passes to the VIP lounge backstage)...mingled for a bit, got snacks, talked about Kate and then the show started...
It was AMAZING! I didn't really know what to expect but we were blown away! Our seats were in the Orchestra section, fabulous! Some of the songs brought me to tears. Remember I told you I have a very soft heart. It was the perfect date night and came at such a perfect time.
I am officially in the Christmas spirit and ready for the day to arrive!!!
