Another Date Night - Valentine's Edition

I think people are ridiculous sometimes. We are getting a little snow here. Nothing is shut down or on a delay, so folks needed to get out a little bit earlier to get to downtown. But then a truck slides on some ice and the whole highway shuts down. It's amazing. Cincinnati is kind of ridiculous.

Anyway, let's go back to yesterday.

As I mentioned, baby girl likes me to get some extra sleep. So yesterday, I slept in rather than getting in a run, which, as usual, left me starting the day on a guilty foot. I just like to have it done, even though I knew I was going to get one in later! Anyway, I at my waffles for breakfast (I made a HUGE batch of protein waffles on Sunday and froze all that I didn't eat so I have breakfasts made for this entire week!) and headed in to work for the day. It was a busy day at the office, it always is, and time flew by. Soon, it was time for lunch, so I got changed into my running stuff, and the gloomy weather made me decide to get into my car and drive home to run on the treadmill. Boring? Potentially. But I had the Biggest Loser recorded and that gloomy day was not appealing to me.

I ran 5.5 miles on the treadmill in 50:21. It was not the hardest workout that I have ever had, but it certainly was not the easiest either. I am proud of it. I averaged about a 9:08 pace.

We had a date night last night, which originated from Valentine's day. Not sure if I have even talked about my Valentine's Day gift or not, but here it was:
That was in a Valentine's Day card. So, as you can see, last night was the night for the show. I made reservations at Nada, downtown, which is a nice Mexican restaurant that we almost never go to (because it is near impossible to get in without a reservation). I spent almost a week looking forward to this meal, and a month looking forward to this show. Yes, I realize Peter Pan is a kids show, and YES I realize Cathy Rigby is 60 (!!!) but it has always been one of my favorite shows. I even taped this version of the play off of TV as a 12 year old and watched it repeatedly. Cathy Rigby has been playing this part for 20 years.
And something that I have noticed for watching it for nearly that long? The choreography is exactly the same. And the Ugg-a-Wugg song which opens the second act is still my favorite number, choreography-wise. Its a good one. :)

I think that J enjoyed it as well. The kids in the audience were definitely having a blast. They all clapped because they believe in fairies and Tink came back after drinking all the poison!

What plays or musicals are your favorite? If you have never seen one, how come?
