This past weekend was a complete blur! Friday night was Fall Festival at my son's school. Pony rides, dunk tank, games, face painting, bouncy houses...awesome. I had a 7 mile training run on Saturday morning (training for the St. Jude Half in Memphis), a two hour appearance at Dollar General in Murfreesboro (thank you for coming to see me!!!) and then a HUGE night planned for the kids.
Believe it or not, my kids don't ask me for much. It's only a matter of time, I know. So, we decided to surprise them with tickets to see Disney on Ice. We told them they'd have to get gussied up because we were taking them to a "fancy shmancy" restaurant for dinner. My son asked if there would be chandeliers. LOL! This child KILLS me. Anyhooo...he came down dressed to the nines and my little girl wore her favorite "Princess Petunia" dress. We had some gift cards for Prime 108 at Union Station, so that's where we ate.
I suggested we have dessert downtown since it was a beautiful evening and also, I had something I needed to pick up at the Bridgestone. When we arrived on the plaza, my son looked around and said, "Mommy, I think tonight is Disney on Ice." I played dumb (which isn't a stretch) and said "Oh yeah! I had no idea!" To which he replied, "Mommy! You work for a radio station. Dont you talk about these things?????" The kid is sharp. We approached the ticket window, the gentleman handed me the envelope and we proceeded to head back to the plaza. My son and daughter looked super depressed, but they didn't complain. Once my husband returned after parking the car, I said "C'mon kids, let's go back inside!" They were very confused. I said "Don't you want to see the Princesses and Heroes?" Well, the look on their faces were PRICELESS!!!!
They were extremely surprised and grateful! It truly was a magical night!!!
Not sure if they'll remember this night for the rest of their lives, but we will.
