Bucket List

While I haven't thought much about having a Bucket List, several of my friends mentioned them when ringing in the New Year. One thing that did instantly come to mind was seeing the Harlem Globetrotters. Glamorous I know. But ever since I was a tween and really into basketball, I thought this group of talented ball handlers was the bees knees (By the way, I know the meaning behind "bees knees" if you ever want to know.)

So, as an early birthday present, D took me to see them at the Toyota Center this weekend. It was just the thing to create a diversion from my sour mood in the previous blog post. I didn't know if the show would live up to my childhood expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did we see a pretty decent game of basketball, but it was entertaining as well. The four point shots were amazing!

We had a nice dinner beforehand at the Amazon Grill and dessert afterward at one of our favorite places, The Chocolate Bar. I highly recommend the Chicken BALT Pita salad and the chocolate truffle ice cream. Mmmmmmm.......

Thanks hunny for a great date night!

  1. How awesome! What a great birthday gift!

    As for the cake pops...I'm determined to make some cute ones one day. I just have to keep trying. Finn's requesting pirates for his birthday, so I'll have to practice in the meantime. At least they are quite delicious regardless of their appearance! Thanks so much for the book.
