We celebrated our 8th year of marriage last week and visited the Oriental Theatre to see Wicked.
Side note: I met my Husband downtown the day of, and I felt so nervous/anxious getting ready to go see him. It was weird. I think my jacked up nerves had more to do with him not seeing me beforehand–getting dressed and what I was wearing and so on–and also, having to drive myself to the train station, getting there on time so that I didn’t miss my train and parking the car…Ugh, I hate driving.
Do you still get “first date jitters” when going out on dates with your spouse/significant other?
A woman at the theatre was so nice to ask us if we wanted our picture taken. We don’t really have a lot of photos of us together, on dates. As much as I’d like them, it’s sort of an annoyance to pull out a camera, pose, then take the picture. All for a super closeup, double headshot! Lol It’s even more of a bother to bother someone else like, “can you take our picture, if you don’t mind”? So, when we were asked if we wanted our picture taken, naturally we were like “yes please, thank you” and I handed her my phone. After she took the photo above, my Husband then took her picture with a younger lady who looked to be her daughter. It was all very nice. The entire atmosphere was abuzz, and everyone there seemed excited for the show.
We’ve been excited about going, for weeks. Getting super theatrical at times, I’d belt out the two line’s I had stuck in my head from the TV commercial: “…and if you care to find me, look to the western sky” and the ending to that number where she just goes really loud, “Ahhhhh-ow-wow-ownnnnn”! LOL
I missed Wicked last time it came to town, and I’m so glad we were able to see it this time around. I always seem to enjoy musical plays, even though all the singing sometimes makes me wish they’d just talk and not go into song (then it wouldn’t be a musical, I know). This show was no different. It had good humor, cool sets & costumes, and an interesting story about what took place before Dorothy and Toto came along. I even enjoyed the singing, especially “Defying Gravity”. That song from the commercial, hearing it live and seeing what was happening on stage at the time, was just awesome! Everyone in the cast/on the crew did a great job.
If you’re in the Chicagoland area and like musicals, I’d recommend checking out Wicked soon. I think it ends right before Christmas.
On to what I wore…
Coat: Martin & Osa • Scarf: Gift from my mother-in-law • Sweater: thrift store find • Jeans: Sanctuary • Pumps: Ros Hommerson • Bag: Abro
I really, really like these red pants. They are a great addition to my mostly neutral wardrobe. Plus, they made me feel…wicked! 😉
