Laurie over at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie is throwing a party and we’re all invited! I think she has been hiding Johnny Depp in “the closet”, so there is no telling what we will find. For many years Beloved and I have struggled to find the perfect Valentine’s gift for each other.
Early in our marriage he sent red roses. I accused him of having no imagination.
He brought home boxes of chocolate. I threw away the ones I didn’t like.
I made dinner reservations. He said, “There are too many people and the service stinks”. What’s a girl to do? Plan your own Valentine’s date, of course!
Beloved found these tickets in his Christmas stocking---The Jersey Boys!! He is finally reaping the benefits of my little part time job! Broadway is something we both enjoy!
This is the story of “how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history”—the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The reviews are great and I can hardly wait for the music! We’ll be seeing it in the beautiful Orpheum Theater in Memphis.
Admittedly, the Orpheum near famous Beale Street, is not much to look at from the outside. The inside, however, is a different story. Originally the Grand Opera House, the building was destroyed by fire in 1923 (during a strip tease). Musta been some strip tease :) At the time it was called the “classiest outside New York City”. After being rebuilt, it spent several years showing first run movies. However, in 1982 the theater was given a 5 million dollar face lift. The inside is beyond elegant and even has its own ghost in box 5. Beloved was thrilled and even added to the fun.
He has made reservations for brunch at the Peabody Hotel. This is a picture of the lobby with the world famous Peabody ducks who march in daily. They descend in an elevator and walk through the lobby on a red carpet to the fountain where they swim for the rest of the day. It is a huge tourist attraction and these ducks have it made!
Maybe this will be the year I’ll change my opinion of Valentine’s Day! After all, big girls don’t cry! If you haven’t entered the giveaway for my blogaversary, you still have time to own an original Fifi! Click here to enter.
