The Way You Make Me Feel

Last night I got the best last minute experience. Even though I had left work early for the dentist, when a pair of tickets to the Michael Jackson Cirque Du Soliel show opened up, my co-worker was thoughtful enough to get me a pair of tickets.

I couldn't believe it.

I looked into purchasing tickets when I was on maternity leave but for us to get decent seats was just too expensive,  but I had been regretting the decisions not to get them and B and I had been emailing back and forth all week about how we wished we could go.

I owe my co-worker lunch, big time. 

It's funny what two beers'll do to ya when you've quit drinking.

We ended up in the 10th row. Our seats couldn't have been more perfect unless we were in the 10th row facing the front instead of the side because all the action was directed towards the front.
I've posted about my love for Michael Jackson a few times.

And this show did not disappoint.

See that big blob near the pole? I like to think it's MJ's spirit getting in on the fun.

For the first time ever, when I said, "I want her body," B agreed with me. It was pretty fantastic.

The show was so good, and weirdly emotional. No matter your thoughts on his personal life, there's no denying that Michael Jackson was an amazing performer and left his mark on music and dance. I kept thinking about that and it made me kind of sad. Plus, I'll Be There gets me every time anyway.

The only disappointing part of the show is PYT was not included, that's my favorite song and neither this show nor This Is It included it. I guess he just has too many good ones and they have to cut something out.

If you get a chance to see the show in your area, go! Go now!

And, just because I couldn't decide which video to show you, I'll let you decide: Smooth Criminal, Thriller, and I Just Can't Stop Loving You

I'd embed them but I'm kind of afraid MJ's estate might come after me or something.


  1. Cracking up over your MJ Estate comment. And now I am completely jealous of ya'll!!!! I know {and have heard} that show is amaze fun! Way to go you two!!!!

  2. I'm SO JEALOUS that you got to go to this! But I'm glad you did, cause you totally deserve it. You do so much--working, taking care of babies, etc.--that getting to do fun stuff like this is so important. Glad you had so much fun; it looks like it was amazing! I've never seen ANY Cirque!

  3. PYT is my fave MJ song too - we played it at the wedding!

  4. I'm DYING to see this. I've always been a huge Cirque Du Soliel fan and had the opportunity to see it in FL for my birthday one year. When I saw the little number they did on DWTS the other night from this, I knew I needed to see this!

  5. awesome that you got to go!! I've never been a huge MJ fan but from what I have heard about this show, now I am intrigued! And a little buzz from TWO BEERS? Girl....better get back on the wagon! haha juuuuuust kidding :)

  6. The show looks amazing! I heard it was really good. Glad you enjoyed yourself :)

  7. I'd LOVE to see this show. Considering it's MJ, I'm sure there's not a mediocre number throughout the entire thing. Looks like you had a fantastic time.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, I always ALWAYS write back so please make sure you have an email attached to your profile :)
