The day after my birthday, Irwin told me to pack for the weekend because we were going to leave right after work. I was excited and anxious, anxious because I had no idea what to pack. All he had said was to pack something nice and just regular clothes. I managed to throw all sorts of outfits into my overnight bag to only use one. We get to the airport, and as we're in line for security, he hands me my boarding pass: VEGAS??!! I was extremely excited because that meant I would be able to see my bff, Uri. If that were the sole reason we were there, I would have been just as happy.
It turns out he had one more surprise up his sleeve: The Beatles "Love" show.
Did I ever mention I'm a Beatles fan? Well I am. I LOOOOOOOOOVE them. And Irwin picked the show and decided it was perfect to fulfill my Beatlemania-ness and complete his Valentine's Day "requirement".
The weekend was absolute perfection. Irwin scored a huge suite at Thehotel at Mandalay Bay, we honestly could have fit another 2 couples in there, and discovered a second bathroom on the second day. It also had this awesome little "kit" in the snack bar of our room, called "the Love Box". It was an intimacy kit. You can imagine what was in there... Lunch at Hash House a Go Go where I had the best Bloody Mary of my life, possibly because it had bacon in it. Yup. Bacon. And white toast. Trust me, it was delicious. The portion sizes were ridiculous. Apparently this place was on Man vs. Food - to finish a REGULAR sized plate of food. It was completely delicious though. Then shopping galore at the ginormous Forever 21 at Fashion Show Mall - we got lost, and just when we thought the store was ending, we'd walk into another room. Then chilled for a bit, and went to the show. AH-mazing. At one point in the show, the cast walked off into the audience, and lucky me, I had an empty seat near the aisle, and one of the cast members sat there and put his arm around me. Sweeeeet. Now I can't stop listening to the Beatles.
I'm so lucky, blessed, thankful, for the most wonderful boyfriend/best friend I could ever have. I was smiles all weekend. I love you my dear, thank you again for the best birthday/Vday ever.
