Viva Las Vegas

My husband and I went to Vegas for our 15 year anniversary. I've been to Vegas a few times before but I've never gone to a show there. Since I don't gamble or drink, Vegas hasn't been that appealing to me in the past.

But this year, we saw a couple of shows. And one was the Cirque LOVE Beatles show. I really don't even have the words to describe how much I loved it. It was my favorite show of any kind that I have ever been to. I'm ready to go back next month and see it again for my birthday. I doubt we'll go back quite that soon, oh, but we are going back!

The trip started off fabulously when we got bumped to first class on the flight because it had been oversold. Yay! I was having so much comfortable fun, I didn't even want to get off the plane when it landed . We got to have drinks, snacks and blankets while we watched "The Office". And that didn't suck at all!

Then, at the airport for our return flight, Air Force One (and Obama!) flew into our gate area so we got to see it land, and then see all the limos and security SUVs drive away. It was all very cool and everyone in the airport was pretty excited. And no one cared or complained that our flights were slightly delayed because of it. Our president is a rock star!

And between the exciting beginning and ending of our little trip was loads and loads of fun. Vegas is the city of excess. Or as the minister who married us a little over 15 years ago had said (because he came from Vegas), "It's the city of sin, and I love it!"

Welcome home and congratulations on 15 years! I've never been to Vegas, but plan to go one of these days. I've also never been bumped to first class...hopefully that'll happen one of these days, too!
