In October 2009 (yeah, we had to wait a few months for the car show haha) we headed down to Vegas! We stayed at the Mandalay Bay where the event was taking place, and we had the funnest weekend ever!
Eric' chillin' in our room, checking out events for the next day. He was like a little boy on Christmas Eve night. So excited.
The camaro was not available yet so this was a big deal!
We looked at cars for hours (or what felt like hours haha, but I was a good sport!) then headed outside. We were surprised to find out we got to drive some pretty awesome cars! Lucky us!
Side note: before driving the cars we had to take a breathalyzer test and I instantly felt guilty (even though we weren't drinking ha) and was super giggly. Eric breathed into it and the guy didn't even check, he just let him through. When I breathed into it he sat there and watched it until it cleared haha. Awkward. Haha! I've never even tasted alcohol! Apparently I can act like I've been drinking, or I just acted guilty haha!
We each drove the camaro through a course they had set up.
Eric's famous picture...SO HOT!
Race car driver's took us for a spin in the new model (well new back then, it was the 2010 model) corvette. So crazy and fun! They flew through the course and drifted around corners!
We got to take these porsche's for a drive, then traded places with race car drives and they drifted through the course. SO FUN!
After the car show we went shopping, ate yummy CheeseCake Factory, and went swimming! (Mandalay Bay has the funnest pool, aka the Beach!) Such a fun weekend!
Ask me what I got Eric for his birthday last year...
I know. Coolest wife ever award down to what-the-crap-is-this-lazy-wifey award. Just kidding :) Seriously, there's just no competing though! (Although, it is a nice watch..haha!) No worries, I made up for it this year with his gun..
Don't mind his work clothes, we went shooting as soon as he was off work!
So, if you can help it, don't give him the best birthday gift he could ever imagine in your first year of marriage. Everything else will just be down hill from there! Hahaha! To be fair, Eric was such a good sport about the watch, he'd really been wanting it for a long time! He's always a good sport! :)
