Viva Las Vegas!

So Rob and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on September 27th in Las Vegas. Rob had a conference there for work so I tagged along. My friend, Ashley (who is living in Denver) flew out and stayed with us for the beginning of the week. She left on Wednesday and then Rob and I celebrated our anniversary for the rest of the time after he was finished with his conference. We actually got to do THREE Cirque du Soleil shows!!! (We are HUGE fans) We had been to Las Vegas previously, and on that trip we saw "O," which was incredible. This trip we started out with "Love," which is the Beatles tribute. Here are a few pics before the show:

The three of us also saw "Mystere," which is also an unbelievable show!

Rob and I finished up the week with "KA," which is the only Cirque du Soleil show that I have seen that actually told an understandable story. As was the case with "O," in "KA" the stage is an integral part of the show!

During the week, Ashley and I visited Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum at The Venetian which was a lot of fun! Here are a few pics from that:

Lenny Kravitz and me

Brittany Spears hanging from a "stripper" pole-would you expect different?

Yes....I was helping Ben win at poker!

For our anniversary, Rob took me to Tiffany's and bought me a charm bracelet and earrings. Thanks to Ashley we have these pics to commemorate the event! (Did I mention what a great husband I have?!)

(Everyone should experience the "blue box")

And here are just some other pics from our great week in Vegas!

We stayed at the Mandalay Bay (beautiful resort)

Since the House of Blues was in our resort, we ate there quite a few times!
