Celtic Woman

Celtic Woman is a huge favorite of mine! I love their clear, beautiful, angelic voices! Their music is some of my favorites for naptime, sundays, St. Patties day, Christmas, and just for me time. Chris liked them ok, but knew that I LOVE them. On St. Patrick's Day he told me he'd gotten tickets to take me to see them the week before my birthday! Can I just say WAAAHOOO! BEST HUSBAND AWARD GRANTED! Come the day of the concert I was sick... but Chris said 'I'll carry you if I have to, you're going to see them sing!' (Did I get lucky or what?!) So we went and he helped me walk around, he got me a souvenir program, and we found our seats. In the first row of the stands. We were SO close. I wish the picture can do it justice. And boy did they sing! Sang like angels! It was so uplifting and fun. Chris was...enthralled. Now he understood how much I love them. The way they move in their fancy formal dresses, the way the musicians are part of the fun playing along, the way the violinist Mairead dances along, the lights the music...ah! I was...blown away. And anyone who knows me knows I'm not often blown away. Not a note off, not a bad vowel, not a icky sound, just...angelic perfection! (From the two who've been with celtic woman a while. The newest girl who's first tour this was [as she filled in for my favorite who stayed in Ireland] wasn't perfect, but she did well...she tried) At one point, I swear I could have touched Chloe Agnew (my favorite who did come) as she came off the stage and right by where we sat! It was...supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Here's the pic Chris took with his phone:

So it was awesome - so exciting! I'm glad you still got to go even though you were sick.
