Memorial Day weekend happened to be my and Ben's birthday weekend. It was a special birthday weekend because he turned the big 3 - 0 on May 22 and I turned 29 on the 23rd. We actually didn't realize our birthdays fell on MDW until two weeks prior. We were trying to figure out why plane tickets were so expensive! Then my coworker pointed it out during my rant. Regardless, it was one of the BEST birthdays ever if not THE BEST.
There were plenty of laughs, birthday wishes, food, and my favorite - MARIAH CAREY! - to be had.
Shake Shack - Shack burger and fries
Amazing, but not blown away! Delicious nonetheless
Shack Shack - Red velvet concrete
Not a big fan of red velvet, but this was AMAZING!! GET THIS!
Serendipity 3 - Fried eggs benedict
AWFUL. Don't bother on the food
Serendipity 3 - Frrrozen hot chocolate
THIS is what you come for
Ben got me the ever so mainstream NuMe 5 - in - 1 Lustrum curling wand set. I've been wanting it for over a year now and I finally get to play with it, not just stare at it online. Hehe ;P
I LOVE IT!
Mariah was all over Caesar's Palace: magazines, posters, key cards
Blurry photo but she is still fierce, baby!
It's just a sweet, sweet fantasy baby
...except for me, this was real <3
One sweet day
The feels ya'll! <3
The birthday duo
Even though the weekend was supposed to be about his big 3 - 0, he made me feel like the queen of he weekend. Ever since I found out Mariah was coming to Vegas, I've been itching to go. What a sweetheart for sitting through a Mariah Carey concert. Thank goodness for iPhones! LOL :p
I already know 29 is going to be a great year. It's been a beautiful start to the end of my 20s. Bring on the adventures :)
