For my amazing husband’s 29th birthday I decided to surprise him with a trip to Vegas. It took 2 months to plan and it was one of the hardest secrets in my entire life to keep. I had his family take him out for his family birthday dinner and after when we got to the car I broke the news to him that we were actually going to the airport. His response… well I guess you will just have to watch the video at the bottom.
We boarded at 11pm and arrived in Vegas at 12:15am. I booked us a room at the Flamingo Hotel. This is the same hotel that we went to for our honeymoon in 2017. We absolutely fell in love with the location, retro vibe, and some of the best black jack and craps tables. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a newly renovated suite that overlooked the strip.
The next morning when we were on our way to breakfast where we usually get a day pass to eat unlimited meals at 8 different Vegas buffets, we were stopped for a promotional deal where they would give us tickets to any show if we sat through an “info” meeting about timeshares. I really didn’t want to do it but free tickets were on the line, so we went for it. Never again. We got a free breakfast, $75 dinner voucher, and $100 in cash to tell this incredibly pushy salesman that we weren’t going to buy a time share. In my mind it so was not worth it.
The rest of the day we spent window shopping at the forum at Caesars Palace and let me just tell you, that place is so dangerously amazing. I could spend all day there. For dinner we went to a steak restaurant that was located in our hotel. I seriously can not brag on the Flamingo Hotel enough. If we wanted to we could literally never leave since it has everything you would every want. We learned how to play craps and had a blast at a table with many other Texans.
Before we knew it, the next day we were on our way back home with a little extra change in our pockets and full excitement to be moving into our new home.
We got all moved in and have been loving our new little place, city, friends, and taking a leap of faith. A lot of change has occurred within these last few weeks but we are enjoying it all. I haven’t felt this sure about where I am supposed to be in life since I married my incredible husband. God has been so faithful and loved us through it all. We know that we are here for a purpose.
