Date Night

(Last week)
My husband called me on Monday afternoon and asked if my mom would mind watching the kids (she was coming in town for 2 days) on Tuesday night because he had a fun date idea. He wanted to surprise me so I had NO idea what we were doing! We pulled up in front of the Hard Rock Casino so I figured concert... but I had no idea we were going to see.........

Yep, (if you can even tell who that is) Colbie Caillat! We were about 3 people from the stage it was SO amazing! Jason Reeves opened for her (please look him up on itunes or youtube!) he was GREAT! If you are a fan of Colbie it was neat to find out that her, Jason Reeves, and Jason Mraz all grew up together writing songs!! The best part of the whole night... it was free! When you live in LV you can become a member of this tickets program where you pay $89 to join and at last minute they will post that a certain performer or concert needs more people so you "grab" (via email) the tickets and just show up. Dustin's bud at work is in it and he has a membership for 4 tickets and grabbed tickets for us. We are joining so if you will ever be in the area let us know we can get you tickets to shows and if you already live here let me know if you are interested because we would LOVE to share tickets with everyone!! Dustin's bud has seen Blue Man Group, he saw Gavin when he was here a couple of days ago... so many fun things to do and all sorts of concerts are always available!

I do have such a sweet husband who knows I would love this kind of thing...and then to surprise me.... even better!!

What a sweet husband. That sounds like so much fun! We were able to see Colbie Caillat while we were in St. George last. She is great, I'm glad you guys were able to go! Plus, free babysitter... even better! :)

Hey Samye! What a fun date night!! You guys are so cute! And way to go to get rid of your cell phones! My sister has never had one and just uses a track phone when they travel and it works for them!!! It always drives us nuts because we can't ALWAYS get a hold of her but it works for them!! You have such a cute little family! And your Africa trip looks AWESOME, what a neat experience! We need to play in a few months when my little guy gets a little bigger, we live so close!!!
