Hooray! In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been looking forward to going to the ballet for a while. Isn’t Kevin THE BEST!! Ballroom dance classes and ballet in the same week. I think I might owe him a camping trip… someday. Maybe when it’s warm again.
I can’t believe we had never been to the Denver Performing Arts Complex!!
All dolled up:
Maybe the dress was a little over the top… but hey, I had fun wearing it!!! Sparkly!! And those heels just might be the highest I’ve ever owned. And I did my wedding hair… not as good without Lisa to help me, but it only took me about two minutes.
Plus glasses and cardigan! I love this Gap cardigan! I’m not really a sweater person, but this one is cozy and the color is perfect!
The lovely outtake Kevin captures every time I have him take 50 pictures of me.
All ready to go with my hot date!
We even had a Grey’s Anatomy moment in the elevator. Haha.
We sat in the first row of the balcony so we definitely had a good view! Of course, I couldn’t take any pictures during the actual ballet, but it was amazing! I’m a big fan of the Tchaikovsky score so it was fun to hear the music performed live as well.
Of course we brought snacks!! I bought a special treat for myself — the little pumpkin candies — and Almond Joy pieces for Kevin James. Our usher wasn’t overly observant so we stayed out of trouble. They also had a nice bar in the lobby of each floor, but we didn’t partake. I didn’t know they’d have soda and coffee!!
Now let’s talk about the number of stairs I had to walk in those shoes!!! We were on the balcony level of the building on the left. And the sixth floor of the parking garage. That’s like a marathon in high heel steps!!
Have you been to the ballet? Taken ballet class? We’re definitely excited to go to more concerts, plays, and ballets downtown! Loving that it’s so close. I told Kevin that if we were stilling living in Minnesota, we’d still have a 2+ hour drive home!!
