New 52 | Week 12: Steel Magnolias

This week's new experience was a birthday gift from my mother-in-law Sylvia. She gave me two tickets to see Steel Magnolias at the Lamb's Players Theatre in Coronado. So last Friday night, Todd and I drove down to Coronado to have dinner and to enjoy the show.

Gotta love daylight savings time. We went after work and it wasn't dark yet! Crossing over the Coronado Bridge and looking back at San Diego.

Once on Orange Avenue in Coronado, we looked for a place to eat but eventually went to one of our favorites, Burger Lounge. It was very crowded but we were lucky to find some seats. We shared a big salad and small fries, and we each had a mini-burger. Forgot to take photos of them. :(

After dinner we walked over to the Lamb's Players Theatre to see the show.

Here we are, in our seats.

The whole play took place inside the beauty salon. The ensemble cast of women were awesome. I had never seen the movie before so I didn't know what happened at the end. It is sort of sad! I won't ruin it for you if you haven't seen the movie either.

I really enjoyed getting out to Coronado to see the play on a Friday night. I love experiential gifts and that's what Sylvia gave me!

About This Project

New52 is a project started by Peppermint and I to encourage each other and others around us to try something new every week in 2011. The "new" each week doesn't have to be something big. It could be something as simple as ordering a new dish instead of old standbys at your favorite restaurant. It's simply opening your heart up to NEW possibilities.

Don't worry if you're late getting started on joining in. It's totally OK if you miss a week here or there. We encourage everyone to keep an open mind about trying something new. This is a life project, and a photography/blog and even scrap challenge if you wish. If you participate this week, please leave a link to your blog post in the link list below. You can also post images to our New 52 Flickr Group! We would love to see what you were inspired to do.  


  1. Girlfriend! You haven't seen the MOVIE??

    Southern to the core.

    It is one of my very favorite. (Especially Weezy and the armadillo cake.)

    Here's an idea..I'll get the movie, you get the plane ticket. Heather and I will pick you up, we'll pop popcorn, fry something, serve sweet tea and pie. We'll return you to California full of good home cookin' and a nice southern drawl.

  2. You haven't seen the movie??????? That has to be one of your New 52's. One of my favorite movies ever! Excellent cast in the movie.

    OMG go now to Netflix and instant play. LOL

  3. I do not know the movie - but I like to hear you had a fabulous evening and got that wonderful gift.

    Like your tradition of birthday dinner celebration with your friends.

  4. I'm with Tracey & Christi here .... I can't believe you've never seen the movie ... it's fabulous!!! One of my favourites to watch when DH is out! ITO that watching the movie MUST be a NEW52 for you at some point during the year ... you won't regret it!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
