Anyway, with all of that being said about his frugality, Ben way out-did himself this year. He took me to Seattle for the weekend and we saw 'Phantom of the Opera'! It was SO much fun! The weekend was perfect! (besides a few little hitches-like almost calling it quits right then and there when we got lost on the way to the Melting Pot) :) More or less, it was Perfect! We stayed at a beautiful hotel downtown, went to dinner at the Melting Pot, which I had been dying to do, and then went to Phantom at this old beautiful historic theatre right in downtown Seattle.
This is the Theatre, it was beautiful!
(which you TOTALLY can not tell from this picture-but isn't that a nice one-way sign?) :)
Here's the inside- do you see the Phantom lurking anywhere?
This was my first time ever seeing Phantom, and I loved it! Loved the story, loved the singing, loved all of it, it was a perfect! Ben and I are still singing Phantom songs, I think he has been even more than me! :) He likes to make up his own words that go with whatever he happens to be doing at the time.
This was after the play, can you tell that Ben was in a rush to get to the car and DID NOT want to take this picture??? :)
