This past weekend Eric and I made a quick trip down to Las Vegas with our friends Nate and Erin Wathen. For a weekend of relaxation and the best food on earth.
We checked in HERE
and proceeded to do all the things we love to do while NOT on vacation with the kids. Sleep in, take 2 hours to leave the room in the morning, go to the spa, do a little shopping (even Eric) and eat dinner at places our kids would surely embarass us.
Don't get me wrong, I like family vacations, I would even say they are my preference, even though they are busy. But its nice do to weekends away with just the 2 of us. Well, and Nate and Erin, who we had tons of fun with.

Also, Saturday is our Body for Life free day, the one day a week we can eat whenever and whatever we want. And we did. I will spare you the details of how much we ate but I will just say, if you are going to have a free day, Vegas is the place to do it. Eric and I are total foodies, and so we love how many fantastic restaurants there are in Vegas. Too many for one weekend.

The weather was so nice, 70's and sunny. We did some walking around between shopping and relaxing.

These are all the pretty flowers growing outside the hotel and in the Bellagio's conservatory. So pretty, I cannot wait for Spring.

If you notice in almost all the pics I am in, I am covering my upper lip, I am experiencing some painful cold sores this winter, another reason to look forward to Spring.

Saturday night, we went to OUR FAVORITE, absolute best sushi place ever Nobu. It was so good, then we all went to see Cirque du Soliel's "O" show at the Bellagio. It was one of my favorite I have seen, The stage was a ll water, and had synchronized swimmers, dancers, divers and so much going on. We all loved it!

Another highlight of the trip was this little patesserie we found in our hotel called 
It has these chocolate fountains in the store, and tons of beautiful treats and the best crepe I have ever eaten. (pictured below)
Sorry, if it seems like I am over emphasizing the good food, but seriously BEST. FREE DAY. EVER.

But, I think the best part of the trip for me was seeing Eric be able to relax. This guys has been working insane hours at work lately and really needed the break, it was good to see him unwind. He even fell asleep during our couples massage, I think the break was good for him. Dosen't he look refreshed?

When we got home, the kids were happy to see us but even happier to see what we brought them. It's funny, I remember when my parents got home from a trip, we were like "Hi mom and dad, what did you bring us?" All kids are the same. Max got a green dinosaur stuffed animal and Ady got a lady bug necklace. They were loving it!
