harry connick jr.
you guys are so sweet. thanks for all the well-wishes.
ok, i'm taking a break from the TX coverage to tell you about the fabulous night i had last night; my husband
won a sweepstakes from Sony credit card - (they're having another one, if you want to check it out)... he got to choose 30 of his friends to take out for dinner, and then to a concert by a Sony artist (we chose harry connick jr.) -- and then after the concert we all got to MEET harry connick jr. seriously. i know some of you
might be hyperventilating at this point - please calm yourselves.
i don't have any pictures yet, but we'll get some from the sony ppl. sometime soon, and i will FOR SURE post them - there is a picture (somewhere out there) of me, my husband, and harry connick jr. wow. ok, back to the story.
so dinner was delicious; we went to fleming's
and i had steak, mashed potatoes, some creamy cheesy spinach, and then for dessert they brought out creme brulees -- they were so creamy and rich and there were berries on top....i could go on and on about the food, really.
then it was on to the concert.
it was fabulous; the big band was there, and they were superb. harry had a trombonist friend (whose name i don't remember) on stage as well. the music was energizing, and the rhythms were tight. it was a great show. afterwards, we went upstairs and all got to meet harry connick jr.! crazy. he signed cd's for us, and answered our questions. sony had a professional photographer there taking candids, and also posed photos of ____ and ___ with harry (fill in the blank). he was really nice, seemed laid-back. it was neat to get to meet him after the show; i would have loved to have had time to ask more questions. he mentioned a little bit about his musical influences on stage, and i'd love to hear more about that, and who he listens to now.
in any case, it was a marvelous night. we don't have any photos yet, but once we get some, i'll be sure to post them (or links). :)

I'm glad to know someone wins those things. I've giving up entering stuff because I don't have that kind of luck. I'm glad to hear you had a good time.
