I forgot to mention that when she looked in the bag, their song started playing. ("Falling Slowly" from "Once")
Kevin really covered the bases. :couple:

Oh jeez I'd have been balling like a jerk.

I don't get the part about filling out the form to win tickets. Did she really win tickets to a Broadway play or was that just a ruse?

All set up by Kevin to get her to center ice in a nonsuspecting way. Clever guy.

:rolls:
I think they're going to see one of the final performances of Billy Elliot, because her future Brother-In-Law is playing the brother, so I don't think she minded too much. :lol:

SW, you're not the first one to mention that!

Congrats to Amy Hillner (and her Matron of Honor cousin and her Mom!) for going to a bridal shop that had a webcam, so her beautiful Mother could experience the picking-a-wedding-dress experience along with her. We figured the tech stuff out, the second dress she tried on I cried, and she cried when she put it on. Just like Say Yes To The Dress. I've been misty ever since. :tears:

My Niece and I had practiced Skyping with her iPhone, but the place said we'd do better with their store camera. Luckily, I got to see all 3 of the dresses she tried on after "the one", and THEN the camera froze up. Someone was looking over us today. :D

Today is my anniversary! It was Tuesday night, April 28 2009, Arie Crown Theatre Chicago. I attended my very 1st Flight of the Conchords show. It was love at first sight. :love: :love:

I remember that just after the show ended I learned that the guys were going to be playing in Milwaukee just a few days later on Saturday. I was determined to go. I couldn't think about anything else. I just had to see them again! I managed to get tickets to both Milwaukee shows and it was awesome. I didn't get to meet them that night, however, I did manage a really great visit with Nigel.

Soon after that I flew out to Las Vegas to see them again at the Hard Rock. That was the 1st time I met Jemaine. It was one of the best & very happiest times of my life. I will never forget it. After we met Jemaine, Vmh ran off in just the nick of time to get the bus back home, she had tickets for the LA show next night and Eorious and I went off get breakfast at 2 or 3am and stayed out all night talking about Jemaine. :nod: :heart:

Vmh and Eorious thanks for making Las Vegas one of the best nights ever! I am so glad that we are friends. I love you guys!

The next morning Eorious flew home to Chicago and I flew from Las Vegas to San Francisco. I flew Virgin America and the in-flight entertainment was Flight of the Conchords episodes. That's when I knew that I would love Virgin America forever. :D I arrived San Francisco with tickets to 2 Berkeley shows in hand. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting SW, Sully, and Amanda. :woohoo: :hug:

SW, Sully, Amanda you made Berkeley so memorable. It was great meeting you. We waited till the bitter end and we sure tried but no meet n greet that night.

I can't wait for our next WTF meet up. I'm looking forward to reuniting with so many of you. I also look forward to finally meeting some of you too.

Next anniversary is in May, we will celebrate our EPIC Las Vegas & Los Angeles meet up.

I knew that sharing my conchords love with all of you would be amazing. I didn't know that I would also be given the gift of your friendships. I really really :heart: all of you. You're all so generous and fun.

I miss those guys heaps. I can't wait for this tour to start.
