So on January 11th, I turned the big 30 and as a treat for me birthday my boyfriend( now husband tee hee) decided that a trip to Vegas was neccessary and who I am to turn down a trip to Vegas.
We spent a few days planning the whole adventure, what shows we wanted to see and where we wanted to eat. Gordon Rasmay's steak was on the top of the list and we were able to spend my birthday supper there, but I will get to that.
So we left January 9th and landed in the sin ciyty our first night we took in the Blue man Group Show at the Monte Carlo, and then Friday night was Circe Du Soleils O and a trip to freemont street, we also through is some lovely restauratns and a day of shopping in there.
Then Saturday was my birthday, I woke up that morning feelin excited, it was my birthday, I was in Vegas and we were going to eat at Gordon Ramsay's Steak that night! Little did I know it was about to get a whole lot better, my boyfriend had a lil trick up his sleeve, while eating breakfast in the food court at our hotel, my boyfriend spotted the chapel he looks at me and then looks at the chapel and says soo you wanna? lol me thinking he is joking, replies with a sure Im down if you are..lol... he looked at me all serious like and said "finish your coffee" and now I am internally freaking out, is he serious? what the heck is going on, so we go into the chapel and he starts asking what we need to do to get hitched, and I am now realizing he is completely serious and have a perma smile on my face, the lovely ladies at the chapel tell us that we have to go to the court house, and then come back with the paper work and they can marry us.
Well since we had a few more things planned for that morning, my boyfriend looks at them and says, we will be back. So do whatever it is we had planned for the morning and then head back to the hotel, get dressed up in out dinner ware and head to the chapel.. this trip was not a quick one, it took us about two hours, so we get everything done and the wonderful court house and head back to our hotel.. we run up to the chapel and find out that we missed the minister by 15 minutes, boo, so we had to make an appointment for the next morning which we did.
so that evening we head to the Paris hotel for our supper reservation where we had the most delicious champagne I have ever tasted, and ate the most delicous food. We followed that with a trip up the Eiffel tower to watch the belaggio show. It was a wonderful evening.
We get up early the next morning, put on our wedding clothes( jeans and a tshirts because we are classy) and head to the chapel. We met with the minister to go out the ceremony at which point he asks us if we had rings, my boyfriend shakes his head no and says we didnt think that far ahead, but little did he know that I actually brought a set with me, not because I thought we were going to get married, but because I had intended proposing to him, so i pulled these lovely tungsten bands out of my pocket and asked if they would suffice, which shocked my Boyfriend,( we did get more traditional rings once we got home) 5 minutes later we were married, and I am the happiest girl in the world, it was the perfect way to celebrate my bithday !
So now I am a MRS, and am even more committed to my goals, as we have plans to maybe start a family.. I need to be healthy so when we have kids, I am always there for them.
