On Saturday August 31, my hubby and I decided to go on our “C” date from the ABC Date Night Challenge. It was his turn to decide on our dating destination/activity so he surprised me with AWESOME seats to the “Woman of Purpose” concert at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. It was an amazing charity event which was held to benefit the organization Autism Speaks.
This concert was star studded. Comedians Steve Harvey and Akintunde kept us laughing as they hosted the event. Artists such as Joe, BabyFace, Mary Mary, Kim Burrell and Jennifer Hudson blew us away with their astounding vocals. Other celebs such as Emmitt & Pat Smith, Evelyn Braxton, Tisha Campbell- Martin, and Holly Robinson Peete were there to raise awareness about this disease. I absolutely love attending meaningful events. We were able to have an amazing time together for a great charity. I call that a win-win situation! Since my seats were centrally located, I was able to get great photos as well- that is until my battery died.
Unfortunately once Miss Hudson’s performance was over, the camera shut down. Initially I was a little disappointed but it gave me time to live in the moment and not just record the moment. My hubby and I were able to dance and sing along with the remaining artists. We had a blast!! We didn’t get back to our hotel until after 2am. I think that is the latest we have been out on a date in a long time. This has been my favorite date so far! I am so happy we decided to embark on this adventure together. It has definitely helped us break free from the monotony of dinner and a movie.
What would you do with your significant other for a “C” date? I would love to hear your ideas!
