I was emailing Tiffany about our recent trip and thought I’d blog it.
Ahhh, vacation. A four day break from life and work did me a world of good. I had no idea how exhausted I was until I got decent sleep and lots of rest! It may seem backward to come back from the party city of Vegas rested, but that’s just what I did. The hotel bed was like sleeping on clouds. A king-sized bed might be in our future. God love Dave, but he hits and kicks me
all the time often throughout the night, so it was nice to get some space from his flailing limbs :-) He even slept for 10 hours, which never happens.
We ate at Gordon Ramsey’s Steakhouse and oh mylanta it was divine. I don’t like steak, it’s dumb, but the American Rib Cap I ate was one of the best meats I’ve ever eaten (sorry Matt, my veggie/vegan friend). I didn’t even have sauce on it. We had mac ‘n cheese and carrots as our sides, and oh my goodness people, it was the best. The best! We both decided we could live off that mac ‘n cheese for the rest of our lives, which says a lot for me because I’d live off ice cream if I could. Eating that meal made me understand why people splurge and eat fancy, quality meals; I get it foodies! Just thinking about it is making my mouth water. SOOOOOOOO good.
We saw Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil and it was breathtaking! The theater was small (small compared to The Fox) and 360 degrees, so you felt like the show was happening inches from your face. The aerialists are amazing athletes and artists. I held my breath a few times out of fear someone would fall, but they didn’t. It made me want to start flying from ropes, though Lord knows I’d scream bloody-murder for my mom to save me. I give the show five thumbs up and recommend it, or any of the Cirque du Soleil shows. While I can do without the rest of the Vegas scene ever again, I’d fly back in a heartbeat for a weekend to see a show and eat a delicious meal at GR’s Steakhouse.
Other than that we walked, gambled a bit, laughed, watched The Americans (Keri Russell’s new show on FX) on Dave’s laptop and enjoyed each other’s company. I felt like a new person with all the rest I got. It really lifted my spirits and renewed a steadfast spirit in me. It was the type of vacation that made me realize how important it is to take vacations/breaks.
