Great evening last night and I love Priceline. :)  
Thank you all so much for the warm anniversary wishes yesterday! :) Mark & I had a wonderful evening. We ended up going to dinner at Longhi's (which is a new restaurant in Ala Moana right next door to Morton's Steakhouse). The food was fabulous and the cheesecake was to die for!

In other news, I got my NYC tickets for the weekend of Jan 17th for $400! From Honolulu, you really can't beat that. Yay Priceline.com! :) True, my connection is in Georgia (which is a straight 11 and a half hour flight from Honolulu), but the price was wonderful! I used to pay higher fares to LA!

I also purchased our "Millie" tickets. We're in the front row, center orchestra. I usually like to be close, though I usually prefer Row B or C, but I'm still very happy with these seats. :) I don't mind spending full price for tickets for the night I arrive, but I think we'll be standing in the TKTS line for the other shows. :) gigglets and I are going to have so much fun - I can't wait! :)

And Sydney's been doing really well lately and is acting like her old self once again - you can't even tell (except for the tell tale shavings on her stomach and side) that she was ever sick. We've been feeding her rather indiscriminately since she's lost so much weight during her illness and we're just happy she's eating again. :) Though I am a little afraid that we'll go back to the vet and she'll be 30 pounds! :P

And I've been trying to fool around with Dreamweaver and move my sites over this weekend, but I'll start, lose interest in about a half an hour, and end up at another theatre message board or back here on LJ. I have absolutely no discipline today. :P

The food there was so good! I ate there for lunch once (with a client) and then raved so much about it to Mark that he had to try it too. I didn't eat the Opakapaka, but I did try the Chicken Marsala and it was wonderful. :)

And yup, Sydney's back to being her demanding, but lovable self. :) Thanks for all your prayers for her. :)

I really want to try the Chocolate soufflé! 20 minutes or so for that. You just gotta try the Opakapaka though. I just love white fish. The first time I've eaten it.

That is so good! Is she fighting for her favorite spot? *L*

Actually, she hasn't quite made it up on the bed yet, but she's trying. Maybe by next week I'm going to have to start fighting for my pillow again. :)

I'm glad you and Mark had such great anniversary! Wow, that is quite an impressive deal you got from Priceline.com. I'll have to remember that for our 10 year anniversary. We're planning a vacation to...Hawaii!! LOL
Sherishutterbug93 on November 23rd, 2003 12:53 am (UTC)
Yes! Come and visit us here! :) We'd love it and it'd be a great way to spend your 10th anniversary! I told Amanda earlier that she needs to add a visit to Hard Rock Honolulu (and maybe Kona) to her list. :)

And aside from a few minor irritations with them, I really think that Priceline is the way to go! :)

Im glad you had a wonderful anniversary! :)

And Im even more ecstatic to hear the good Sydney news!!!

Thanks, Angie! And thanks so much for being there for me when Sydney was sick. We're so thankful that she's better. :) *HUGS*

Sounds like you've got a good price on tickets. How long will you be spending in New York. You're really making me want to look what is on at our local theatres at the moment!
Glad to hear Sydney is doing well, hope verything continues that way.

It was a great price - the tickets usually run about $600 from here to NYC. :P And Pat & I will be in the city for just 3 days. It's a short trip (Mark is even staying home) and is basically just to see Kevin in "Millie" (and maybe "Wicked") ;).

I love Priceline! I used them for my May trip to Hawaii. The going rate from Portland to Honolulu was $650 & I got to go for $300. I use them for my trips to Colorado too & save a ton!

Wow - that is a really good deal you got. :) I worry sometimes about Priceline since you don't get your itinerary until you make your purchase. :P Because of my limited vacation days, I usually need to leave on a red eye and I usually already have show tickets for the next night - so there usually isn't much room to be flexible with times. But it actually turned out quite well and I got the times I was looking for. :)

I know what you mean about itinerary worry. The only trip I booked thru them that had a so-so itinerary happened to be my Hawaii trip only because I arrived there so late.

Glad to hear my favorite ONLINE DOGGIE is doing so much better!!!
glad to hear you enjoyed your night too! What did you eat? I'm just nosey like that..lol It's funny how you talk of going to NY so
often, I have never been there.....

I had the chicken marsala and it was delicious! :) There are so many things I want to try on the menu, I can't wait to go back there! :) And I love NYC! Every time I go to the city, I feel like there's just not enough time to see and do everything I want to do. You should go there, you'd love it. :)
