What a Fun Night, with Added Drama

Last night Mike & I went out for a date. We had such a great time (besides sitting in traffic). We ate at our favorite Chinese restaurant - Shanghai Garden, in Issaquah. I'm actually writing a review on it so I guess it served us two purposes last night. After our yummy, yummy dinner we headed down to the Tacoma Dome for the Dixie Chicks concert. I think the last concert we went to was over a year ago and it was at a local bar.

We got to the Dome about 20 minutes late which was OK though since we had never heard of the opening act. I don't even remember his name but I think Mike summed up his singing pretty well - Awkward!! Especially since he sang "Natural Woman" during his set. The Dixie Chicks, on the other hand, were great! I love going to concerts where they actually sound the same live as they do on their CD's. Our seats weren't the best but luckily they had a projection TV that zoomed in on their faces throughout the show. Of course though, there has to be some sort of drama going on. I have no idea what it was about but while the third song was being sung all of a sudden people started standing up and getting out of their seats. I figured they were just going to start dancing or something. Nope - a fight broke out about 8 seats away from us. Luckily one of the guys got kicked out and not allowed to come back (wow, was his girlfriend M-A-D!) and the other two missed about half of the show. THEN while they were still "looking into the situation" Mike decided to move to stretch his legs a little and security began pointing at him! Thankfully they realized he was not a part of it so nothing came of that.

The Chicks sang all of their past hits and quite a few from their new album. They put on such a great show!! They even dedicated a song to K-Fed in light of the recent events that have happened to him. They sang "White Treash Wedding" for him. You can read the lyrics HERE - aren't they fitting?

Our neighbors were nice enough to watch Logan and according to Jayne he was "absolutely lovely" the whole night. I'm so glad that he was so well-behaved and didn't give them any trouble. Maybe we'll be able to do this a little more often :)

What a night out! I think it's great you have such wonderful neighbors. I have recently decided that I am not waiting for my real estate agent to have a get-together for my neighbors (so I can meet them). I am just going to do it myself!

I hope you get more nights out like the last one!

I am so glad to hear that you like the Dixie Chicks! How polictically uncorrect you are! :-) I love their music! It sounds like you had a great evening out.

Hugs,

When sitters gush to me about how good Scooter was, I figure they're lying--ha ha ha! lol And that the sitter wants more money!!! :D It sounds like you guys had an amazing evening out--my favorite thing is just to spend time with Jonathan--without Scooter. As much as I love our baby boy, we can't focus on each other when we're constantly working with a toddler. :D

I like a couple of Dixie Chicks songs, but I'm one of those who is still mad at them for being so vocally anti-Bush. I'm ticked at Barbra Streisand, too... I may or may not agree with what they're saying, but my issue with them is... they're artists! They're musicians! When did politics enter that arena? I mean... (yes, I feel strongly about this! lol) if I wanted to go to a political debate or convention I would have gone there instead of to a concert! :D

Scooter's scaling his child gate--I'm going to have to run and put him back into his bed. Ahhh, the joys of naptime. :D

Ohhh, I LOVE a good fight. :) Your evening out sounds like a great time. I went to a Def Leppard concert last year, and it was almost as eventful as yours. I think I'm gettin' too old to enjoy concerts any more... *sigh*

The ship is done, and I've posted photos. It was quite fun, but 'm SO glad it's over with.

Hope you had a fabulous day!

It's Tuesday already!! I'm dying without an update! Is it wrong to be addicted to blog updates??? lol Especially when I KNOW that Logan's up to *something* cute. :) What are you kids doing for Thanksgiving? Anything fun? Are you cooking??? It's just going to be we chickens at our house for the big day--Tabitha'll be here to help cook, and hopefully Jonathan'll alternate between helping wash dishes and watching/playing with Scooter.. :)

I'd love to see the Dixie Chicks. And any night that involves Chinese food rocks! Glad that you enjoyed your date. Parents don't get those nights too often.
