The Nutcracker

A highlight of my childhood around Christmas time was seeing the Nutcracker Ballet at the Weinberg center.  My mom would always take me to go see it as a part of my Birthday celebration.  When I turned into a teenager I didn’t want to go anymore and hadn’t gone until this past Saturday.

Wade and I decided to make a night of it and go for drinks and tavern appetizers at Firestone’s downtown before heading to the Weinberg Center for the show.  I got all dolled up in my favorite emerald green maxi dress, {that can be dressed up or down} put in a low-side sock bun and put on some red lipstick.  I was all ready for the ballet! πŸ˜‰ 

Firestone’s was crowded- must of been partly because of the santa parade going on outside, but nonetheless we got a seat! Wade had been wanting to try a mint julep and ordered one. I stuck with my favorite Firestone’s drink- a Greyhound.  
We ordered the mussels in wine sauce w/ truflle fries and crab dip.  Everything was amazing and we had the awesome Colleen Morin as our waitress so it made it even better! We were in a bit of a rush but still managed to enjoy our apps, drinks and the beautiful lights outside on the trees lining the streets.

 We picked up our reserved tickets at the booth and bought a quick drink before finding out seats.  The show was great and just as magical as I remembered!
