Date Night

I just receieved the best birthday present ever! Seriously...I have an amazing husband! I told him that for my birthday I didn't want a gift, I wanted a super fun all planned date night. I picked up the sitter around 4:30 and we were off.

First stop we went to Ba-Ba-Reba a Tapas restaurant. It was SO good! We got six rounds of appetizers from shrimp and egg salad on toast to short rib stuffed piquillo pepper (they were all about bite sized so we each got to taste. And then we ordered our tapas- we got chicken and ham croquettes, skewered beef, crispy calamari and garlic shrimp. They were all smaller portions so you could try each of them and feel full yet not stuffed.

After dinner we went to La Reve! That was a really good surprise because I love seeing shows, and this one was incredible! It seemed a lot like a cirque show-but it was so neat! We had perfect seats too, 4 rows from the front...we could see all the action from right up close (thank you to local discounts...I can't believe what people actually pay for these tickets!!!)

After dinner we went to Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris Casino for dessert. We had reservations and at first they sat us in the restaurant until they heard we were only having desserts. Then they moved us out onto the "bar" (boy did we score here!!) The bar was right overlooking the Bellagio hotel so we could see the fountain shows perfectly!! AND- because they didn't want to upset us we got a lemon tart with raspberry sauce on the house ALONG with the desserts we ordered-a chocolate mousse and profiteroles (vanilla icecream filled pastry with hot fudge sauce) YUMMY!

It was such a wonderful date...and it made it so much easier to have reservations at the dinner and dessert places...i really do have the best husband in the whole wide world. It was such a fun date!! Thanks sweetie!!

Ah! Sounds like you had a lot of fun! Happy Birthday Samye! I wish we lived closer and could go on a double date. :) So I have an "it's a small world" story to tell you... I'll have to email you. I'll try to get to that today - just kind of funny.

Fun!! Get it all in before you have this new baby. Ky's parents are staying at the Paris from today until Thursday. We really wanted to go with them and stay in their hotel room,....but they didn't invite us. :) Hope everything is going good for you.

Happy Birthday, Samye! I'm glad you had a good one. Our anniversary was on your birthday, and we stayed at the Wynn. There were signs all over the place advertising La Reve. It looks awesome.
