Celine Concert

Last Thursday night Jennifer and I were able to go see Celine Dion at the BJCC for FREE!!! A big thanks to Debbie for the tickets!!! We met up and had a great meal at Newk's. It did take way too long to get our food though. I never knew how much I loved a pimento cheese sandwich. :) We got around the BJCC about 30 minutes early, but it took forever for us to finally get in the parking lot. We parked a mile away and man was it COLD!!! Our tickets were in the upper level, but they were in the middle so we had a great view! Here are some pics:

She sang "The Prayer" by Andrea Bocelli with his performance on the big screen. Man, it was beautiful Jennifer had that song played at her wedding, so she had a little moment, I think. :) Of course, for the encore, she sang ,"My Heart Will Go On." When Titanic came out- many a moons ago, I went to the theater and watched it 3 times. I have always loved that movie! It was a really great show! It also provided me with a little distraction with everything that is going on right now. When the show was over, we hiked it back to the car and guess what we saw:Really! 21 degrees! I told you it was cold!!! I was really glad that I wore my cute scarf! Thanks so much Jennifer! I had a really great time! Here we are all bundled up on the way home:


***Update on Mamaw: Her xray on Thursday looked better and she has had a pretty steady week with no setbacks! Her doctors are amazed and truly believe that she is a fighter! Maybe a little on the stubborn side too. They have not had to start the heart medication so we are still on our knees daily for more healing!
