Valentines sans Valentine

Valentines day in Tucson was celebrated with some amazing women. It was a beautiful day that gave me time for a bike ride and run through the wash, but not quite enough time for the needed nap. The group met at my friends house and of course being the only Mormon, I was dubbed the "DD." I also got dubbed the cook and was commissioned to make appetizers for the group. We had tickets to the Tucson Ballet "Roots of Choreography" show and then a musical concert called "Hot Love." The ballet was unique and interesting with various styles of dance from water, to contemporary, to traditional, to whimsical. It was an amazing show with everything choreographed by the company members and local artists. Following the show we went to the hilarious "hot love" show which was 5 incredibly talented musicians that sing show tunes, soul tunes, do a few spoofs, Elvis, Love songs and do it wall with plenty of humor. It was a small restaurant that hosted and the performers came right out into the crowd and it was very interactive. They even blind folded us for a number. The best part might have been the 3 course meal, 3 courses of DESSERT that is! How in the world can you possibly go wrong there? The only thing that was funny was that the desserts were supposed to be shared by couples and it was supposed to be romantic that they didn't give us silver to use, however with a group of girls and not couples it was actually a little funny. They ended up bringing us a few extra plates since we weren't exactly couples into feeding each other. It was a great night!

Dressed and ready to go. It was gorgeous when we started and down right cold when we finished! So strange the weather is...summer dress and then 1 hour later winter coats!

This would be the bracelet that showed up in the mail from Mike. It's always extra fun to get a surprise in the mail on valentines day.

Karma and Susan.

Karma, Lindsey, and Lorraine.

The whole group!
