Where Did the Past 2 Years Go?

Hola friends!  I’m done with traveling for work for the year…yippee skippee!  Now I can get back to my regularly scheduled blogging.  Oh wait, my slaking started before I started traveling….hmmm.  Ok, well now I’m REALLY going to get back in the swing of things!  Promise.  There shall be consistent updates on Diesel, on us and on our adventures.  Plus, Christmas is coming up and it’s just the most wonderful holiday EVER, so you can bet that I’ll have a lot to Christmas related posts coming up.

Well, Jeremy and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago on October 27th!  Whoop whoop!  2 years down…many, many, many, many more to go.   Let’s take a moment to reminiscence, shall we?

That was a fun trip down memory lane, wasn’t it?  Anyway, I was traveling for work on the day of our anniversary, so we planned a vacation for the following week.  Where did we go, you ask?  LAS VEGAS!

We spent about 4 days in “the city that doesn’t sleep,” and enjoyed various activities such as laying by the pool, making sports bets (Jeremy), shopping (Sara), watching the Lions in the habitat, eating, walking around The Strip and seeing a show. 

During our stay, we resided at The Signature at MGM Grand and I highly recommend it!  We were on the 37th floor (out of 38) and had an awesome view of the city.  Our room even had a kitchenette in it complete with a mini fridge, microwave, dishes, silverware, cups, placemats, everything!  It was nice because we brought a lot of snacks and if we had leftovers from meals, we could always re-heat them later.

Not our actual room, but it looked just like this!

The view.

As I mentioned, we took in a show too.  We saw Cirque de Soleil’s Ka, which is showing at the MGM Grand.  It was a really cool show!  The performers do so many crazy tricks and jumps and the theater itself is pretty amazing.  The only thing that was a bit odd was the plot.  Of course, there was no dialogue and generally one could grasp the concept of the story…but there were moments where Jeremy and I looked at each and said, “Are we on drugs?  This is so strange!”  But ehhh, that’s Vegas for you, and we’re still really glad that we saw the show.

All in all, it was an enjoyable trip for our 2nd anniversary!  Here are some additional pictures from the trip:

Just arrived…it was 12:30am, which is why we both look tired.

About to go see Ka.

And before I complete his post, here is a picture of our Diesel.  No post would be complete without him, would it?  Stay tuned for my next post and a new segment on our blog, which could quite possibly turn into a weekly segment, called, “What did Diesel Eat Now?”

Happy anniversary, you guys!

I loved this Vegas post so much. It reminded me of our trip in June. I really had a good time there and would go back.

Looks like you had tons of fun. That room is huge!!
