Month in Review is a new monthly meme which was created by Kathryn at Book Date.
Well my birthday month has come and gone. I turned 28 on the
1st of March. One step closer to 30.. *sighs*. I went out to
celebrate at Dave and Busters for some drinks, yummy food and games. Dave and
Busters is basically an adult Chuck-e-Cheese. It was a great night.
Another highlight from this past month was this past weekend
(the 28th) my mom and I went to see the Irish singing group Celtic
Thunder in concert. What an amazing show! Man can those guys sing and they aren’t
hard on the eyes either hehe.
Check out a video of them performing below:
Just beautiful! One surprise was the fact that former group
member Damian McGinty rejoined the group for this tour. Fans of Glee know him from
his role as Rory in season 3. The audience also learned that we were all going
to be part of the filming of their upcoming DVD, which was pretty exciting.
