Well folks..........the day has finally arrived where I turn the BIG 3-0!! I can officially no longer claim the twenties and am now referred to by my husband as his 'OLD BAG.' :-)Dave took me to Vegas a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday and surprised me with balloons and gorgeous roses today. We completed the evening by indulging in fiesta cheese fondue, meats, and chocolate fondue at the Melting Pot. This is becoming an annual tradition. See pictures below..........

Dave is by far the BEST HUSBAND in the world because he took me to my favorite place on earth for my 30th birthday - LAS VEGAS!!! My actual birth date is not until January 27, but I wanted to see David Copperfield and he was only in Vegas through January 11. We stayed at the Luxor, ate at 3 buffets, gambled, shopped, saw David Copperfield and Criss Angel BeLIEve. It was a very 'magical' weekend. (haha - get it because we saw two magicians? ok ok.......moving on) It was the best birthday present ever!! Here are a few pictures from the trip:
Luxor Hotel - the hotel is in the shape of a pyramid so the inside was really cool looking.

On the first night, we went to our favorite buffet at Mandalay Bay. As you can tell from the pictures below, we definitely enjoyed ourselves! There were crab legs, shrimp and all the desserts you could ask for!

This was our second time seeing Criss Angel BeLIEve; however, I'm a huge fan of magic and illusions so I wanted to see it again. This time around, we had seats in Row D so we had a great view of the show. The show was amazing and I would highly recommend it!!
The next day, we went to the Bellagio for their breakfast buffet and I did a little shopping at the Caesar's forum shops while Dave bet on the football games.

On the last night, we went to see David Copperfield at the MGM Grand. I saw him many times when I was younger so I was really looking forward to seeing his Las Vegas show. While we were waiting for the show to start, they asked if I would be willing to participate in the show. I couldn't believe it and of course I said "yes." I was soooo excited that I could barely contain myself. During the show, David Copperfield selected me from the audience and I got to go on stage with him. He placed a paper butterfly on my shoulder and made it turn into a real butterfly right before my eyes. It was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. We weren't able to bring cameras into the theater, but here are some pictures outside of the theater.
Thank you to my husband for the best 30th birthday ever! I will never forget it!
