What's Love Got To Do With It...

I suggest you play the what's love got to do with it while you read this! It really was faboulus...and each show is excatly the same with presentation. ENJOY!

This was the opening act!

(couldn't find live video from Sacramento but took from San Jose, from the complex where our friend BOB is the head cheese or the go to man...I think!)
YES BLOGGER FRIENDS! This is who I went to see with my bestfriend for our...(get ready) OUR OCTOBER MYSTERY TRIP! I know...get out...right?! Well, settle in friends as I tell you my fairy tale story of seeing an ICON!
Adrien gave me the invitation and on it, it says...Stylish Affair, wear my Sunday's best. On our invites we NEVER tell where we are going but give very subtle hints. Adrien TOTALLY threw me off. So, I went and bought new duds and prettied up my face and hair. And meet her over at her folks house around 430pm. Then we took photos (sorry haven't downloaded those yet...)and then we set out.
We arrived at a resturant called the Malabar!

We both dined on some fine meals. I would recommed this resturant to everyone! Great place.

Then went from there to get a cup of coffee. We were relaxing with our tea and coffee and I was thinking to my self...."I wonder where we are off to now? If we get on the freeway we must be seeing that new show downtown called 'Plaid' or if she turns into Arco..." What happens next...Adrien turns into Arco! I KNEW we were going to watch TINA TURNER in concert!

(pics were from Sacramento concert)
Friends all I can say that I loved every minute I was there with my BEST FRIEND! We both sung our hearts out (I think we even got a bit teary eyed when we first saw her step out!). We both swayed together and sang to each other (like we use to with hair brushes when we were young girls...LOL) It was a magical time for me! And then to share with someone I love so dearly is something I will cherish always! It was a spectular show and I just want to take this time to thank my darling best friend, Adrien for making this a magical mystery trip! I will never forget this....!

Just an update!!! I only have 2 more treatments to go...and (drum roll) I will then find out if all this worked! Thank you to all of you for continuing to support me and loving me! I cherish each of you and soon I will be around to check in on all your lives! Cheers! And no worries...good ol' Rob still has on her party hat and is all smiles!
With much love,

What an amazing event!
I'm so glad your outlook is so bright and happy!

Sandy said...

I've always LOVED Tina ~ what a treat to be able to go!
Continuing to pray for you and your treatments - you are such a positive person! Have you received your package yet?
Have a wonderful weekend.

Okay, that's it! You are having way too much fun. Once again, you are setting the bar for cool. What a great night, a great friendship, and good for you both for taking the time to remember to play.


just bob said...

That's very cool. Tina is a dynamic stage performer, so I'm sure she did a great show. You've got some great friends surrounding you... both in person and on the internet.

Leah said...

Fantastic. Tina rules and always will. That is one of the best mystery trips ever!!!!

kylie said...

what a fantastic night out and a wonderful friend
you go girl!!


Suzanne said...

You MF!!! It's too cool!!! How in the hell do you two do it? I'm dying in the park with every day life and the two of you are having the time of your life. Okay, knock it off! So when I was getting off the freeway for Discovery Park, you were getting off for Arco!? Too funny. If you didn't have cancer I'd kick your ass. What?! Baby, that's too funny. She's the best friend on the planet. You're a lucky, lucky woman. Oh, and that's one nasty pair of legs!!!

I love you so very much. Hang in there. You know we all love you so much.

Sorry baby. That was me. I posted twice.



*pumps fist in air and yells*


Suzanne said...

IV. What? What are we going to do with him baby? He's so lovable you just what hug him stupid.

I GOT THE CARD!!!! I LOVE IT!!! It arrived on time, but I didn't get the mail yesterday because I was too damn lazy to walk to the garage. I know. Pathetic. It's so adorable I told Leah I'm going to turn it into a magnet. And I am. I'll show you how. I'll record my every more. I love big art magnets, not wee ones. You'll see. I actually thought about starting a magnet company. I think it would be a huge hit.

Thank you darling. I love you very much and I appreciate the fact you thought of us. I also love that you called us Mr. and Mrs. my last name. That was the best!!!!! And I also love that you signed your last name. Like I wouldn't have known!!! Stuff like that makes me laugh. Silly stuff kills me. Oh, one more thing, probably no one else would ever notice this, but I appreciate color, so I do. I love the fact you picked a lime green envelope to go with an orange card. And also that the lime green matched "TRIKRTREAT." Absolute perfection. Damn you're good.


Rosemary said...

What a great time Robyn!! So great for you!
I am so glad you are almost done with the treatment.
I keep you in my prayers always.

Suzanne said...

You also just want to hug him stupid. I'm having trouble!

Suzanne said...

Obviously, because Rosemay slipped in!


Gypsy said...

Well that is just too kool. Tina Turner certainly deserves the monikder of ICON. She is just amazing.

What a wonderful friend you have in Adrien. Friends like her are so very precious but then I'm sure you know that. I've got everything crossed for a brilliant outcome from your treatment but with your wonderful attitude how could you go wrong? Much love and big hugs...

Practically Joe said...

You are such a lucky ducky.

Walker said...

Now that must have been one hell of a show and she knows how to put one on.
One day ask me about the two hours we spent talking between sets.
Great lady
Great legs too ;)

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Wow, what great fun! I love to hear about your mystery trips!

Terri and Bob said...

Looks amazing.

I have been wondering about you! How are you? Check in with me, ok?

Cece said...

Can you believe she still looks that hot. Damn what a body that woman still has. What cool!

Cece said...

I ment way cool. I am so not cool. Now I must go cook fish sticks for my twins. Yep, at midnight. Yep, they are still awake, and hungry!!!!! argh!

Gina said...

WOW,all I can say is an awe inspiring, jaw dropping, WOW!

Skeeter said...

Hi Robyn,

How's it going? Talk to you again soon.

Best wishes,


Suzanne said...

Walker, I'd like to hear about the two hours you spent between sets.

Robyn, get your ass over to the Wild Onion please. Brian has finally roosted! I think you should be there. Oh, and if possible, put on that fancy little cocktail waitress outfit you left hanging on the bathroom door. That'll work! We have a variety of shoes stored in the linen closet. Good luck. See ya soon honey!!!

Love you, XO
