Our weekend getaway :)

What a fun weekend we had!!! When I say that Jason is my best friend I truly mean it. I know that the phrase “best friend” is thrown around a lot but when I speak of Jason I truly mean it. He is the first person I want to call when I receive good news and the first person I want to hold and comfort me when there is bad news. We have been through a lot in our eleven years of marriage, we have grown up together. I wont lie or try to sugar coat things like it is easy or perfect. Jason and I are both very open about the fact that we have been to marriage counseling a couple of times in our marriage. In the beginning we were young, scared, and thrown LOTS of challenges. With this said, it is the hard and difficult times that mean so much to me. We loved each other enough to FIGHT, WORK, and HOLD on to each other as we figured out what we needed to do. One of the things that we have made a big priority is weekly {if possible} date night. Jason’s parents taught us by example early in our marriage. At times it is hard making sure that Nana or Bubba’s nurse is available to watch our sweet babes BUT it is a priority. So, this weekend was an added bonus to what would be our typical date night.


As we sat at dinner one night on our getaway weekend we talked about our favorite year together. We both agreed that it had to be this past year. It just seems to get better each year. Life is hard, that’s a fact that will never change, but it seems easier when you have your best friend by your side.


I am so grateful for this weekend that Jason and I had to spend together.

We had so much fun!!!

We ate a TON!!!!
Ummm.... Can I just say that the deserts were my fave!!!!
We went and saw Blue Man Group.
We walked around a TON
Oh, and did I mention all of the deserts??
We went on a Gondola ride....
Where this guy sang to us....
and it was pretty romantic. :)
We stayed at the Paris Hotel and one night.....
We went to the top of the tower ....
To see this view of the city......
and maybe kiss a little. :)
We also went to the M&M store {4 stories high} and
the Coca Cola store.
{where I got a diet coke christmas ornament.... thought it was fitting.}
We got Diet Cokes from the fountain and ate Peanut M&M's.
{Bubba is allergic to peanuts so we don't get to do that often} 
We watched some shows on the strip.... 
and we found some.... 
amazing art to look at.
Over all the entire weekend was......
Pretty awesome!!!!
