Happy New Year 2018

Hey Arconati Family, Happy New Year 2018!

This is a quick administrative post to let you know that it is my intention to bring back much of the birthday, anniversary and well-wishes event postings this year. We’ve missed these way too often and at some point stopped entirely, but I have a renewed inspiration to make those happen with regularity this year. If you would like someone’s birthday or event to be included, please feel free to comment here or contact me more directly. Thanks!

Happy Tenth Anniversary to Jim and Lisa Arconati

We celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary this weekend! The whole afternoon and evening was arranged by me for Lisa as a surprise. First, there was a family trip with the girls to see Seussical the Musical at the FCC Theatre within the James J. Eagan Center.

“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best loved stories collide and cavort in this unforgettable musical caper! The Cat in the Hat is the host and emcee in this romp through the Seuss classics! Will the planet of Who survive? Will Horton pay attention to Gertrude? Will Mayzie ever return for her egg? Dr. Seuss’ beloved classic characters find themselves intertwined in an incredible crazy-quilt adventure, in which the power of imagination and the most miraculous “think” ever save the day!

Then the girls went to Mema’s house while we went to a jewelry store to get a special locket soldered shut. Unfortunately, this particular store couldn’t get the work done without damaging the contents, so we bought a new chain for the locket and headed back out again.

We drove around Creve Coeur Park for a short time and checked in briefly to our hotel room at Harrah’s.

For dinner we spent a while dining on the finest fondue at The Melting Pot. By the time we had eaten our fill, it was time to return to the hotel for the night. The room was a junior suite on the 9th floor and had a huge tub. There was also had a huge bed with a faux-canopy, a comfy couch, a desk, two chairs and a big television. There were matching bath robes, a huge mirror and a double sink.
