I knew we had a fun night planned ahead, so naturally, that required a bit of fuel :)
Possibly the MOST fun moment of the trip was when Chase and Jessica made their appearance (cause remember, dude was bummed it was going to be "just us" which he later explained it was only cause he'd always been gambling with the boys, etc, etc. Yeah yeah) I had made reservations for us to eat at a swanky casino steakhouse and let Chase and Jessica in on the plans. So, they snuck up behind us at the table where Chase said to Chris from behind "good luck with that ace sir". You shoulda seen him! It was like he was 5 again on Christmas morning!
Dang... maybe Chase should have been the one in the office holding the sign...
It was such a happy moment for me! All that planning, all that stressing and all that worrying was worth that one moment! He was SO excited! Needless to say we spent the rest of that dinner talking about how we got the room, who else wanted to be there but couldn't and all the awesome plans we had for the rest of the weekend. Sweet success. Best best part of all? I got wife-of-the-year award from the hubs! Seriously, he couldn't stop thanking me all weekend for planning the whole thing... I ate.it.up.
Here's a pic of the crew shortly after the sneak attack.
The bday boy and his bff.
This is what you get for your 30th bday at swanky casino steakhouses... one bite of cake.

Back in our room... my unsuccessful attempt at photographing the lights from our room.
The next morning we headed out for a gourmet McD's breakfast... that's how it's done... Vegas style.
This is the other part of our hotel (Wynn-Encore) Oh, and me and the bday hubs and my gourmet, Vegas, McD's coffee.
After walking a gazillion and a half miles on the strip. SO many things to see!
Ready for the Jabbawockeez? We are!
What a show! Too bad we couldn't document it (no pics allowed). I'm telling you... a trip to Vegas would be worth just getting to see this... they were awesome entertainers!
Ready for a night out!
Sorry for the lack of photos... promise I'm getting better about that! It was a very memorable trip, and we had a fantastic time! Even if you don't like gambling... Vegas is a site to see! On a serious note... as a believer, it was a bit overwhelming to see glimpses of the dark side of Vegas. Maybe I'll save that for another post.
Just so you know... no crazy secrets up this girls sleeve for at least a good ohhh month or two ;) I think I'm addicted!
