Rockettes Recap

In all of the hububaloo over the holidays, I got a little carried away and forgot to post about our trip to go see the Radio City Rockettes!

My parents treated Ian and I to this special occasion and I was so psyched to go see them!

There were alot of "blue hairs," and they seemed to have come in droves to see the Rockettes, but it was still alot of fun!

We sat in awe and wonder and watched as they sang, danced, tapped, and flitted through their performance.

I wasn't too fond of how they used "little people," to play elves....I thought we would be past that sort of thing.

And I didn't really like how they had some non-rockette scenes, along with a pretty annoying Santa monologue, but I guess them Rockettes have to do costume changes at some point, right?

We had hot cocoa and m and m's while bundled in our coats.

And I may have snuck my crocheting in my purse for a before show/intermission activity.

We took our pictures in front of the stage, once it was permissible of course.

And we just loved hanging out with my folks, despite the near frigid temperatures.

I especially loved how cute hubby looked in his candy cane striped shirt and new Gap sweater.

Cute, cute, CUTE.

Not to mention his adorable dimples....

Heaven help us, don't get me started.

And, as my friend Courtney texted me, the nativity was the most gorgeous reenactment of Jesus' birth I have ever seen! Just breathtaking!

If the Radio City Rockettes ever come to your town, you should really check them out!

I've always wanted to see the Rockettes. I was a dancer in high school and wanted so badly to be a Rockette someday. But alas, was about 8 inches too short! My short legs just wouldn't have fit in!

Oooo! Sounds fun! I hope to see them someday. You'll have to forgive my ignorance, but... are blue hairs old people?

I feel the same way about my husbands dimples!

I saw the Rockettes in New York my junior year of high school and LOVE them. I am amazed how great of dancers they are! I haven't convinced Brian he needs to see them yet though.
Did you get any crocheting done? hehe.
