holy smokes. so one more thing. dave suprised me last week since i was out of town for my birthday by taking me to vegas for the cirque du soleil show "O." OH. MY. AMAZING! it was incredible. it's a water show and has a stage that comes up and down out of the water so one minute someone is diving in from incredible heights, and the next, someone is running across stage covered in fire. if you've never heard of or seen a cirque, i highly recommend it. this one may have spoiled me though. definitely the best i have seen. i had been dying to see it and now i know why. i love the cirque and this was such a great way to celebrate. all dave told me was that we were going "north-east." i had no idea what he meant. i kept thinking we were going to victorville or something "fun" like that. haha. so we drove up in the morning, hung out in vegas for a few,
saw the show,
ATE CAFE RIO. (oh man...funniest story. cafe rio in vegas closes at 10. we got there at 10. dave runs to the door and it is locked, but out walks a family. being the polite gentleman that he is, he holds the door for all of them and then walks inside. he was so embarrassed...but so proud that he was able to get me cafe rio.) and then drove home. it was a blast. i just loved that dave knew exactly what i needed for my birthday this year. 8 hours in the car with just him. :) for reals! we had such a great time. i love spending time with him. with school and all the other craziness, sometimes i feel like we hardly see eachother, so it was such a great adventure. at the end of it all he just looked at me and said "yeah, don't think i'll ever be able to top this." and i totally agreed. haha. i just love and adore him more than i ever thought possible and am SO grateful for the adventures we have together.
