Our day in downtown San Antonio at Christmas went into the evening. My husband and I dressed up for his company party. He works for one of the largest employers in the country and for this party they always bring in top talent…this year it was the band Journey…yes, the “Don’t Stop Believing” Journey.
As the Christmas lights came on all around us, we walked through downtown from the hotel to the Convention Center. Many of the employees stay downtown for the party as the company negotiates special rates for the night.
It is usually well attended, but I think they highly underestimated the popularity of Journey right now. As we got closer to the Convention Center, it was evident the crowd was beyond huge and the line to just get into the party wrapped around and around the building. We stood in line for over an hour, and along with many others decided to bail out. I like Journey, but honestly, not enough to stand for hours and only imagine what it would be like inside. But, as I said the other day, it was bittersweet because we joined some of his friends at a bar for laughs and good conversation and line watching. Once it went down, another hour later, some of the friends decided to go inside and sent out this picture.
I think the ones who stuck it out had fun. My only regret is that we stood in line for so long and did not go enjoy some of the other sites in downtown. But, it was still fun to dress up and our day had been wonderful.
My outfit was simple, but I felt confident in it and my husband liked it. I have owned this jacket for a long time, and to me it just fit the Journey decade. Underneath is an Eileen FIsher tunic tank, a Chicos necklace, Joan Vaas Leggings, and these fun Rockport pointed toe flats. My motto is…………..It Is Never A Waste of Time to dress up and look your best!!
