Things to look forward to

Hello Lovely Ladies!

I received a FB invite to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's annual concert and Gala today (the official invite will prob be in the mail any day now...)! I've been looking forward to this since last September when our house-purchasing budget didn't allow us to go...

Sorry it is so blurry/small

I used to be an usher at the Meyerson (12 years ago) where the event is held, and I always remember it was such a big deal, but never understood why! Now that I am older/wiser I realized it is because the dinner is $1000.00 and higher a plate that is why! It is the DSO's biggest fund-raiser of the year and the dinner will be followed by a concert by world class cellist YoYo Ma.

The after-party will be hosted by the most fabulous conductor's daughter in history, Anna-Sophia Van Sweden. Our "Conductor of the Year" Jaap Van Sweden, has put the DSO back on the symphony map all over the world and he happens to have a gorgeous, super supportive daughter who attends most DSO concerts, but travels the world in between!

This is her with her dad at last years Raaj themed gala

Basically, this after-party is THE social event of the season and I already have Zac 80% convinced to go and I am soooo excited!

Of course I'm also looking forward to school stuff and the upcoming SMU football season (more on that to come), but there is one more event that is going on in August, including the Dallas Blogger Society's event on August 16th at the Joule hotel. Should be a great way to meet new bloggers, and who knows maybe I will meet you there!

What events are you looking forward to this season?

  1. That sounds like a lovely event. I can't think about fall parties yet. I need a new wardrobe
