Memories ...

This is how I feel  after spending a lovely day yesterday getting home just before midnight  ♥
Hubby had a surprise for me in the evening. We were going out after dinner ... I had no idea where.
After driving for over an hour we arrived at our destination.
At this point I knew we were seeing a live show and tried desperately to look for a sign or billboard letting me know what show :-)
I was even more baffled when John Stamos walked on stage and sat at the drums!
And then realized that we were going to watch THE BEACH BOYS!
The last time we saw them live was in the '70's :-)
They were absolutely fantastic playing straight through for over 2 hours ... taking us down memory lane xo
A few new listings in the Shop ... painted White Hare Hug with my childhood rabbit Cinders in mind ~ accompanying story is included with purchase of print ♥
It's been a couple of days of walking down Memory Lane ... I suppose  Birthday's do that ♥
~~*~ have a wonderful weekend~*~

Oh how wonderful Deb!... I am such a huge Beach Boys fan... they used to come to Salt Lake City often when I was growing up in Bountiful, they even wrote a song about it... lucky you!... I do believe I know the words to every single one of their songs!... so happy you had such a nice birthday and how sweet of hubby to surprise you with that... love going down memory lane also... xoxo...
