Our Little Getaway

This weekend Travis and I took a much needed little getaway to Las Vegas. Vegas is probably our favorite little place to escape. We try to go at least once, if not twice a year. We are planning on 3 times this year; once more for my birthday in June, and then *hopefully* for something else in September!

Anyways, we stayed at the lovely Treasure Island. Last time we stayed there we received an awesome room upgrade. We were hoping for the royal treatment again this time, but it didn't happen. However, our room was still great. And for $61 bucks a night, you cannot beat it.

We basically just hung out at hotels near ours, and threw all of our money away. The first night we went to dinner at Maggianos, considering we get a discount thanks to our lovely jobs. We were waiting for a table, and Travis comes back from the restroom and says, "you will never guess who is here". Two of our favorite regulars from my last store were there. They are the nicest couple you will ever meet. And for some strange reason they love Travis and I. They had already been sat. What were the odds of running into them in Vegas, let alone at the same restaurant. But then when we got sat, they sat us at the table next to them! It was so crazy, but it was awesome to see them.

Travis and I have always wanted to see a show while we are in Vegas, however the budget has never allowed for it to happen. On our last day there (we were only there 2 days!) we came back to the room after our money to find a message on the phone. It was the hotel offering 2 for 1 tickets to Mystere, the Cirque de Soleil show at our hotel. We looked at each other, put our shoes back on and ran down to the box office to see if tickets were still available. The line was insane, but it went pretty fast. We finally got to the front and found out they still had tickets. So, we got two tickets for $120 bucks! Not bad considering the people behind us in line had paid $130 each. Not only did we get two tickets for that price, but they were in the 5th row.

The show ended up being *AMAZING*, and worth every penny. Especially when during one of the stage changes, they picked Travis out and took him onstage and locked him in a cage. It was pretty funny and so random. We had a great time and next on our list is to see Le Reve at Wynn.

Overall, getting away was just what we needed. I am a firm believer in little getaway trips, at least twice a year. It is so good to just get out of town, spend some quality time together and decompress.

** We only took one picture the whole time we were there, and now I cannot find my cord to upload my picture. As soon as I find it I will post it!

  1. THAT would have Seriously KICKED ass, if you would have gotten a photo of Travis in a Cage. I love it. I'm so glad you had a good time. I am a firm believer that get a ways are very much needed.
