Dh and I finally had a date night last night! It has been a couple of months since we went out on a date. We got dressed up and saw Phantom of the Opera-- and my, my he did look so handsome! I like to think that I cleaned up nicely as well, but since I didn't have to look at myself I'm not too concerned...
We had pretty good seats and had no problems seeing the stage. For those who are vaguely familiar with Houston, the new Hobby Center is so much nicer than the old Jones Hall, which had felt like a dungeon! I was a little disappointed that Raoul was being played by the understudy who had a good voice, but it wasn't very rich or strong... The Phantom and Christine had absolutely gorgeous voices! Definitely a big thumbs up on that. Dh really enjoyed it (although musicals and theatre are not normally up his alley-- he's more of a soccer and shorts and t-shirt kind of a guy). He was disappointed in the orchestra not being loud enough as they seemed a bit muted last night. It was the second time we've seen Phantom, the first being BK (before kids).
All in all, we had a great time just being together without our precious kiddos. To top it all off, Dh was savvy enough to find a good parking spot that was not in the parking garage so we saved ourselves a good half hour of trying to leave the Hobby Center. Have I mentioned how smart my dh is? He is the best! I'll try to post a pic of our evening out. We forgot to take pictures but ran into a friend there who had a camera.
So, when was YOUR last date night? I'd love to hear about it!
