The Opera

8:28:00 PM

So about a month and a half ago, I told Kory that I wanted to go to the opera. I had seen a flyer for it and I was sure we needed to go. I bought the tickets and a couple weeks later we got all dressed up to go to the opera. I'll let you in on a little secret...the best part of the opera was the walk to the parking lot, sitting on the couches in the lobby during intermission, and making a Smith's run afterwards. Don't get me wrong, the opera was great, it really was. But the opera made me realize that I'd rather cuddle on the couch with my sweetheart than do something crazy and expensive. I'd rather walk down grocery store aisles hand in hand with my husband than pay for a weekend of entertainment. I found everything I need, and while the opera was a fun night out, sitting on the couch at home with a bag of popcorn and an episode of Prison Break would have been just as good. Maybe even better.

  1. It really is the simple things in life! Who says we need extravagant dates! I prefer a quite night at the beach with my love, watching the beautiful ocean over anything! I bet the opera was such a cool experience though!
