Is everyone tired of hearing about my birthday yet? I'm sure by now only my immediate family is reading anything related to this topic.... anywho, I promise to keep it short.... here we go!

Chad had been talking about my "Birthday Surprise" all last week. Saturday was the day and I was stoked!

We started the morning off with breakfast at Kneaders. Mmmmm. Best breakfast, ever. After that we went home and Chad told me to get ready. Without giving anything away he told me what to wear, and what to bring to change into.

Soon enough we were heading south. Then we stopped at Walmart. I figured we would turn around from there and head back into town. But we started heading south again. I had no idea where we were going. I thought he was just going south to trick me. Because unless you are headed all the way down to Vegas, there's nothing south of us except desert.

Again, nothing to do with my story,  my super delicious cake that Chad made
Lucky me... I was going to Vegas! We shopped, wandered around, shopped some more and found these beauties. I am in love with my new boots! Chad also found something for him too :)

fancy suit, that we got a killer deal on, for our fancy date
I found two pair of boots I like and couldn't decided so we bought both, went out to the car, got my outfit, changed in the bathroom (difficult), then tried on both boots and pranced around a random store. As soon as I saw these I knew they had to be mine. So we returned the other pair and took these lovelies with us! Thanks Chad :)

Just ignore the fact that my face looks as yellow as my tights
We spent the rest of the evening dressed up and all of a sudden were treated much differently. Normally we are in sneakers and t-shirts because we are walking around a lot and have to drive an hour and a half. We were getting the up and down glances from everyone and people were much more helpful and friendly everywhere we went. Note to self/everyone: dress nice in Vegas, it's much more fun!

Normally in Vegas we eat at gas stations and WalGreens. And then we carry around our goodies in a shopping bag and eat while we wander. Classy people. What can I say, we're super cheap. This was a Birthday surprise though so we went to a fancy shmancy restaurant, inside the Wynn, instead. An added bonus, we sat along the wall that opened up to the casino, so we could still people watch.

After dinner we wandered around until the very wee hours of the morning. It's fun to shop during the day but you just can't beat people watching on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. I had a rockin' birthday, thanks honey! Let's do it again real soon ;)


  1. I love the blue dress and the yellow tights! I'm going to be planning my first trip to Vegas in September and I am really excited. I think I like your comfy sneakers and t-shirt Vegas though!
