The Wife Hat: Surprise trip to Vegas

Doesn’t he look surprised in this photo? I was beaming with excitement and he was so confused. You see, I had made dinner reservations for his birthday … in Vegas!

I had kept the entire thing a surprise. We went up for dinner, spent the night and came right back home … just the two of us (the best part). We left Phoenix at 3pm on Friday and returned at exactly 3pm on Saturday. It was truly one of the best trips I have been on.

We had dinner at Jasmine at the Bellagio, which was fantastic! We had a table by the window so we were able to see the Bellagio Fountain Show go off every 20 minutes or so. Dinner lasted over 2 hours (if you have kids, you know how rare this is).

Then, we walked casino to casino just laughing, gambling and people watching. We ended up at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill for drinks and dessert: the banana cream pie to be exact. We seriously had such a great time. And, for the record, only lost $6.

Happy birthday, babe. I love you more today than ever.
