Wicked awesome

So last September, Kristen, Lindsey and I decided that WE were going to treat our husbands to a fun Valentine's Day treat. We mostly did it because we wanted to go see Wicked and knew our husbands would have a better time if we went as a group. I kept it a secret from Ryan up until the drive to the city on Saturday.

It felt like prom. We got all gussied up and then took pictures. We all drove up together in our friend's mini-van. Ryan's parents were even there to send us off. Only difference was we didn't have a curfew this time. :)We ate at an AWESOME steakhouse called ACME chophouse in the baseball stadium. I highly recommend it. Yum! Then we braved the wind (seriously...crazy wind) and ran to the Orpheum theater for our show.
It. Was. Amazing. Amazing. I loved it. Loved. It.
I have no other words.

Oh, except this is our other option for a Christmas card this year. Isn't Valentino hot?{Oh yah, and I think I'm done trying to find lip color that will actually color my lips. It's just not going to happen. What do you think of the red? I think I'm just going to go for the red from now on. I thought it was too much before, but really, when I've got people asking me if I wear lipstick when I run in the mornings, I might as well go for it, right? And just for the record: I DON'T wear lipstick when I run. Or ever. This is just gloss.}

Maren, you look amazing-LOVE that dress. You know what else I love? Wicked. The best musical ever because even my hubby enjoyed it!
Way to go on being an awesome daughter-your mom and step-dad are lucky to have you. :)

PS ... lovin' the lip color. Seriously. It kinda sorta changed your lip color a little bit. ?? Hot. Looks like you had a great time.

How fun! And you are one HOT mama!! I can't believe that is just gloss on your lips! Incredible. And there is nothing wrong with wearling lipstick when you run in the morning. There is just something wrong with running in teh morning!!! :)
