Since Julia's arrival I can count on one hand how many times Scott and I have been able to sneak away, just the two of us. When it comes to girls nights I don't even need a hand. I just need a singular finger. One lonely finger. ONE!
When I discovered the world renounced Moscow's Russian Ballet was bringing The Nutcracker to L.A. I couldn't contain my excitement. The Nutcracker was the first ballet I saw as a child and the production won my heart over way back then.
I asked Scott if he was interested in making a date out of seeing the ballet but he politely and emphatically declined, but he suggested I make a girls' afternoon out of it. Genius idea.
It didn't take me long to line up the perfect date. My girl friend (hi, Barb!) and I have decided on a boozy little lunch, complete with arugula and goat cheese salads, and wine (we be fancy) before hand. Then we'll head over to one of L.A.'s landmark theatres - The Wiltern - to see the classic ballet.
Though the date is still weeks away I love that I have something so fun to look forward to. Yay for fancy lady dates!
