This last Saturday I had the pleasure of going on a date. Wahoo! But this was no ordinary date, it was one my husband actually planned himself. Aren’t those type so fun? We started off by scouring Anchorage for tile. Hmmm… sounds like hubby planned the evening, huh? After hitting up store after store for a tile matching our discontinued entry variety, we discovered one thing: tile is EXPENSIVE. Ouch.The only exception to this is the big box stores, which is the route we’re considering.

After home improvement shopping, we were off to my favorite Greek restaurant, Pizza Olympia. We know to always plan for a leisurely meal at this restaurant, and this occasion was no exception. Two hours later, we emerged from the eatery with full bellies and smiles on our faces.

The final stop of the night was the Sullivan Arena for Lippezanner stallion performance. I first saw the Lippezanners as a horse-crazed little girl, and it was fun to enjoy the show again as an adult. Here are a few of my favorite movements from the night:

The Capriole

The Courbette

If you’re so inclined, the Lipezzaner show will also be coming to the Menard Sports Complex this Wednesday night, July 29th. Tickets are available at CarrsTix and at If you were ever a horse-crazed child, treat yourself to a night of appreciating some equine beauty and talent.
