1st Anniversary: Vegas Vacation

Eric surprised me with  15-rows-from the front tickets to see "The Lion King" at Mandalay Bay--- the one broadway show I've wanted to see since 1. I watched the Lion King Broadway behind-the-scenes on the Disney Channel over 10 years ago & 2. I LOVE the music from the movie, how could I NOT want to see this show?!

The music was AMAZING!! Made me miss being in the pit orchestra (cello) for Bakersfield Musical Theater!
Laying out at the pool... at the hotel we will NEVER stay at again (Just say no to any Consolidated Resort).. pool was nice though!

I adjusted immediately to the 107 degree weather because I'm from Bakersfield, CA, and you never really get over that heat shock.

I gave Eric seasons 3 & 4 of The Office for his present and he's been watching it non-stop (well, that AND Burn Notice). 

Best anniversary ever! Can't believe it's been a year already!

*Note I said "First Anniversary" and not "One Year Anniversary" since anniversary means "the yearly recurrence of the date of a past event" and thus conveys year anyway. Thank you, Google for preventing me from making that grammar error.


  1. Happy Anniversary!! You look so beautiful (as always), and so happy. We went to a play for our anniversary this year too--Beauty and the Beast. Must be the thing to do! Lion King is definitely next on my list. I hope Year #2 is even better for you both!!

  2. Happy 1st Anniversary!! :) Go Eric! Way to treat your wife like a princess she is! :) Xoxo

  3. Happy first anniversary!! And I must say I'm SO JEALOUS of you seeing The Lion King Broadway show, off Broadway I guess? I'm glad it plays elsewhere though cause I'm DYING to see it and I'm not sure when/if I'll ever be back in NYC!

    LOVE your movie list to the side as well, if I might say. Fabulous taste!
