It was the perfect holiday evening for us! We had a long leisurely dinner while visiting with friends at our favorite restaurant, Gourmet and Company.
The tree was set up right behind our favorite table so this was how Mr. Mickey saw me this evening.
Mr. Mickey was looking dapper as usual! His 1940's Hickok cuff links are part of his vast collection of Mickey Mouse antiques and collectibles of which there are more than 3,000 rare pieces. In his previous home he had a museum to showcase some of the collection. This lifetime collection is being offered for sale in it's entirety. You may write to me about it at Susan@FiftynotFrumpy.com for more information.
Each time I see this friend of a friend we talk about shoes. This time we were wearing a very similar style.
Mr. Mickey was a happy man when he heard that this bread pudding made from croissants was on the dessert menu. Bliss!
The Johnson City Symphony has been performing for forty-five years. Their Christmas performance is one of the most popular. The words to many favorite Christmas carols are projected upon the giant screen above the stage so that the audience can sing along. During intermission the poinsettias are removed so that young ballerinas can dance for us along with the final performances.
The stained glass windows in Mary B. Martin Auditorium, Seeger Chapel were decorated with wreathes and candles.
Retired Judge John L. Kiener was appointed to the judgeship years ago by Mr. Mickey's efforts while he was active in politics in east Tennessee.
Mrs. Kiener is always so pleasant!
My look for this evening includes a wool double breasted jacket from Talbot's a few years ago. Tailored slacks and clutch are by Ivanka Trump via Saks Off 5th. The shoes are by DVF from a few years ago. The statement necklace is from Chico's last year.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me and on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
