Mr. Serious and I had a date night. Apparently, it’s one of those things that married couples do when they leave their kids at home! Let’s just say it’s been a while (I really don’t think we’ve had one since E arrived!)
We even dressed up (but only did a self picture). I’m wearing a dress! (Which was free thanks to my mom buying a dress that she didn’t like the fit of. Whoot!) It was nice sitting next to each other not worrying about the girls and just enjoying each other’s company. I even got to rest my head on his shoulder. Swoon. It’s still a nice fit over 14 years later.
We went to go see Cirque du Soliel’s Totem at Atlantic Station. And it was nothing short of amazing. The colors, the people, the lighting, the graphics. Everything was awesome.
And intriguing right when we got there as this is what we saw (I didn’t know I couldn’t take pictures before the show started. Promise I wasn’t trying to break the rules. My phone stayed firmly planted in my purse…)
Seriously. Amazing. The clowns started working the audience before the show even started…and there may have been some popcorn thrown at the audience. They were hilarious and kept things moving and interesting. They took on several characters and each was awesome.

There were ring acts, jumping on plank acts, trampoline and bar acts, trapeze acts, women on tall unicycles with bowls on their heads and so many more. A favorite was a “scientist” that juggled light up balls inside of a giant flask. It was like molecules moving around in there. And, I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but I think he finds something while doing his science experiment.
It was also nice to see that they were human. There were a couple little hiccups during the show and everything kept moving smoothly. Sometimes it just helps keep the reality in check.
If you get a chance to see Cirque du Soleil definitely do it. There is nothing bad to say about the show (although, Mr. Serious would like me to mention that the seats are a little on the uncomfortable side!)
We received tickets to see the show. All thoughts are my own.
