The Best Surprise!

Our awesome hotel!

The view from the room at night

Our view in the day!

The yummiest sliders! 

Brandon found his best friend on the strip! :)
So Brandon told me to be ready at 10 on Friday, he had something special planned for us! So I was super excited but at the same time I like to do my research and try to figure out his surprises because I don't like not knowing things! :) Anyhow so I did figure out we were going somewhere so I was really excited now! So he came home from work at 10 and told me to pack for the weekend and that we were going to Las Vegas! I was super excited! So off we went...Brandon had babysitting all lined up and everything. Jordan so kindly baby sat all day Friday and that night then my parents were coming into town on Saturday morning until Monday. I was so nice to be able to talk to each other while we drove with no distractions and no kiddos. We stayed at the beautiful Vdara which is in the new city center part on the strip. It was awesome it's a no smoking and no casino hotel so totally up our alley!! He got us a room that over looked the Bellagio fountains! Las Vegas has always been our thing we went on our hunny moon there and used to go like once a year and usually stayed at the Bellagio. So this was really special and so sweet for him to plan this for some time away with just us! So as we were walking around checking out the hotel and figuring out where we wanted to eat for dinner he pulled us into the will call ticket line for the new Cirque du Soleil show Zarkana! I was all are you serious?! So we picked up our tickets then got ready for dinner. We decided to eat at Jean Georges Steakhouse and holy cow was it unbelievable!! Seriously the best meal we have EVER eaten!! Extremely spendy but totally worth every penny! I got this yummy chicken with a side of truffle butter mac and cheese delicious and Brandon got the best steak in the world seriously cooked to perfection and he got truffle butter and bacon mashed potatoes! We loved all of it! Great way to start the trip and night! Then off the the show. I just am amazed at how talented the people are in the show it was crazy I think the coolest part of the show was the lady that juggled and the man that balanced on a ladder while having a lady balancing on him! AWESOME! Then we got to sleep in shop around Saturday afternoon. We ate lunch at a place called Housteins. Delicious sliders and shakes!! The place was really fun to eat at too! They first bring you out salt and vinegar popcorn that was really good! Then at about 3:00 Brandon was insisting on going to Treasure Island. So we headed there and yet again he surprised me with another show!! Seriously this man is amazing! So went got ready for dinner and a show for the evening. We ate dinner at Fix...and it was awesome again! I had truffle butter penne with peas and Brandon decided to go with another steak. Both totally good! I would eat that pasta anyday...anytime! Then off to our show Mystere!! It was spectacular! I think this was my favorite of the two we saw. Really incredible! My favorite part of this show was these two gymnast guys..I can't even describe how cool they were! Then on our way back to the hotel we got my favorite thing ever in Vegas....gellato! Then Sunday we decided to go back to Housteins for some more shakes and sliders then we headed home! This weekend was just perfect I love how thoughtful my sweet husband is to go out of his way and plan this whole weekend for us to have some good one on one time! It was very much needed! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband!
