The 12 Dates of Christmas!

For Christmas, Spence and I decided to give each other the "12 dates of Christmas."  We each took 6 months and planned surprise dates for those months. 

For January, we went to a cooking class at Gigi's.  It was really fun.  We made the most delicious meal, and then we ate it with our new friends. 



Our little group was in charge of the fingerling potatoes, asparagas, and the scallops! 




February we went to Disney World!  Ok, so we were already there, but that vacation counted as our February date!


March we went a little overboard!  My mom does bingo every year on Christmas Eve, and this year we won a gift certificate to Flying Sumo in Park City!  OH MY GOODNESS =  SO YUMMY!  Seriously, a month later, and I am still salivating when I think of it!  We combined this dinner with a concert - Lady Gaga!  Yeah, judge if you want!  It was a bit risque and we were probably the most conservatively dressed people there, but we had a lot of fun.  She has an awesome voice, she was quite entertaining, the sound system was incredible, great seats, and overall I thought it was a wonderful evening! 



When we first arrived at the concert, we decided to go walk around and do some people watching!  Very entertaining...

And above are some videos from the Gaga concert if you are interested in a getting a taste of what it was like! 


3 days later, we hit up the Bon Jovi concert!  All decked in my black to represent ROCK! 


Bon Jovi is a legend, and totally proves why he is still around 27 years later.  The place was sold out, the fans were crazy over him, and it was a blast! 


BEST PART OF THE NIGHT.......

So check it out, we are just chilling in our seats, listening to the concert when all of a sudden I look behind me and there is a man sleeping... Yes, SLEEPING during Bon Jovi!  Spence and I could not stop laughing, and he had to grab a picture of it!  We were dying! But no worries, we didn't let him sleep for long, the flash on our phone, totally woke him up!  Oh, but such a funny memory and I still giggle when thinking about it! 


So far, we have had some great dates, looking forward to more fun ones to come!  And seriously, such a great Christmas gift idea.  Forces us to plan dates in advance, and to get creative when planning them!
