I firmly believe you cannot have a happy life without having a happy marriage. Having a happy marriage takes work - sometime it takes a willingness to get off the couch and out of the house and do something different! Hubby and I did just that the other night - we got dressed up and went to the big city of Springfield, MO - ate out and went to the Pat Benatar concert!
We tried out Big Whiskey's downtown. It had a cool downtown vibe to it. My chicken parmesan was very good!
We had time to kill before the concert started and I didn't want to stand around in my heels lol so we ordered dessert - fried cheesecake! It was cheesecake wrapped up in a flour tortilla, deep fried and served with ice cream and caramel sauce. It was delicious!
The concert was held at the Gillioz Theater. The Gillioz is a beautiful theater built in the 20's with lots of charm. I really enjoy going to concerts there - it is smaller and more intimate. You feel like you're right there with the musicians.
Even though we got dessert, we were still pretty early for the concert - we were so excited!
Pat Benatar and her husband of 33 years Neil Giraldo put on an amazing concert! When she came out and started to sing Shadows of the Night, I thought she was lip syncing because she sounded just like her records! Some musicians don't sound as good in person. Not Pat! She has one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard!
I actually teared up when she sang Love is a Battlefield! I was 16 years old when that song came out. You always remember those songs when you were a teenager!
