Have you ever waited for something for a REALLY long time………and it ended up being even better than you imagined it would be? That’s what happened to me late last week.
One late night last November, my daughters came home from seeing Justin Timberlake in concert here in St. Louis. They couldn’t stop talking about how good he was, how incredible it was to see the stage literally move over their heads so he could perform to the back of the stadium as well as the front. Their eyes lit up as they both talked at the same time, excited to show me the videos they took of the extravagant and electrifying performance ……. and secretly my heart sank.
I bought their tickets months before, as a birthday gift for Heather. I didn’t think I needed to go………I’m in my late 40’s…….I go to bed at 9pm…….what business did I have going to a concert.
So when I found out he would be just four hours away in Kansas City in July 2014……a call was made to Kristen asking if she wanted to go………..we agreed VIP tickets were in order, Heather decided she wanted to go again …….tickets were bought and we waited and waited and waited. EIGHT MONTHS we waited.
The entire time Justin Timberlake was both humble and in awe and so much fun. He even got the entire arena to sing Happy Birthday to the lady sitting 2 rows in front of us! Can you imagine? Yes, JT brought sexy back with a stellar performance and I’m so glad we went! our seats were so close to the stage it often felt that he was looking/singing right to us!
Easy Double Berry Cheesecake Lush Dessert
If I could have taken a dessert to Justin…….it would have been this no-bake Double Berry Cheesecake Lush Dessert I made recently.
If you haven’t noticed, we have been on a bit of a strawberry and cheesecake pudding kick here. This no-bake dessert has about as many flavor variations as it does names. But whether you call it Lush, 4 Layer Dessert or Delight……I’m sure it will bring sexy back and you will call it easy and delicious! A perfect dessert for parties, potlucks, and other gatherings.
You could easily change up flavors or make half the dessert, by using an 8 or 9-inch pan or make a lighter version by using fat-free cream cheese, light cool whip and sugar-free pudding.
What was the last concert you went to?
