when in Vegas...
The first thing we did when we arrived in Las Vegas on Saturday was hit the mall, of course! I was hoping to find some clothes to help me survive the Arizona heat, but had no luck as the stores are still carrying mostly winter stuff. Which is totally fine because then I kind of turned our shopping trip into selfie central, ha ha! These girls aren't into social media as much as I am... so they totally had to put up with my picture obsession :)
After shopping we checked into our room, got ready for dinner, then headed to Margaritaville. We usually eat at Maggianos but we couldn't get a reservation until way late, but Margaritaville ended up being SO fun! I started the night right by dumping my very full glass of ice water all over my lap (it was like slow motion as the icy water hit me and all I could do was sit there and yell, "on me! ON ME!" ha ha!) Thank heavens for my sequin pants that seem to be totally water repellent but my shoes? Not so much, ha ha! The food was delish and just as we were finishing up, the cutest nerdy man on stilts came to our table and told me he heard it was my birthday (a night early, but I am all about celebrating anytime!) He made me the coolest balloon crown (best balloon tying I've ever seen!) that didn't seem as big as it actually is when I was staring at him making it all the way up on those stilts, ha!
After dinner we made our way to Treasure Island to go watch Mystere! I screamed, jumped, clapped and squealed like a little girl when they told me we were going! I've always wanted to see a Cirque Du Soleil show and it did not disappoint! I am already itching to go back with Eric and see another show! It really was incredible!
We headed back to our rooms after the show because we are old and lame and were totally exhausted :) I got up early and came home with half the girls to get Mia, then spent a low key Sunday feeling all the birthday love! Not a bad way to ring in 27 ;) Vegas was amazing! Coming home to Mia was even better! The only thing I needed to make it a perfect birthday was to have Eric with me as well :) What a weekend!
