Viva Las Vegas...Celine, me, and papa...

My dad & I VIVA'D Las Vegas :) 
We left on Friday, April 8th and came home Sunday, the 10th.
Such a GREAT getaway w/ the best dad in the whole world.

Why, you ask, did we Viva Las Vegas?...come in close...& I'll tell you.
You've probably heard of Celine Dion. No big deal, but she's one of the most ridiculously amazing singers of all time. Well, we were lucky enough to go see her live. LIVE! 

Here's the back story..."Once upon a time there was a young child named Kelsey born in 1991. Her father, Alan, loved Celine  & wanted to share her greatness with his daughter. So, they would listen to cd after cd & find themselves dumbfounded at her voice. Years went by. They continued to always share a love of her & wanted to eventually see & listen to her live. To their surprise, she started performing in sin city. They purchased the tickets in the early months of the year 2010. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, & many moons later, the time had FINALLY arrived. April 9, 2011 slowly crept up on them & then all of a sudden, (BAM) they were in the car road tripping it down there. Nothing could contain them. They were thrilled. They were ecstatic. They were ready."
So, there's how this all came about. We have daddy-daughter dates all the time & this one crawled up to the top of the list. 

Went running in the morn down the strip{shocked?? shouldn't be
(what we thought was only 2 miles turned into 5. That's what happens with us :))
Walked through the mall
M&M World
thumbs up to m&ms
they're a must have in the sorensen family

The Coca-Cola Store

super creepy coke bear...we had to get a pic

Rainforest Cafe for some dinner before the show

Then...on to the concert

oh hey celine
My Heart Will Go On & The Reason may or may not have brought a tear to my eye.
We couldn't believe we were actually there. It was absolutely amazing & I wouldn't trade that experience for anything.

Driving home the next was over...but it was amazing. We listened to Celine practically the entire way & we both ended up having her songs stuck in our heads for the next few days after that.
We were just fine with that though. 

Best getaway ever.
Thanks dad. I couldn't have asked for a better time with you. 
You're amazing & the best dad anyone could ever ask for :)
Love you!

So that happened,
& tonight, KC, Brett, & myself decided the condo need a little rearranging.
Mainly because we didn't want to do our homework.
Also, because we were too claustrophobic. 

KC provided dinner...his delish homemade pizza. It twas spectacular.

Then we started with the creative moving of the furniture.

Darth watched over & made sure everything went as planned.

& then we took apart the table because it was taking up WAY too much space.

We ended the night with some Rock Band...rockin out fo sho.

It's been a good time.
Now, all that's left to do is finish up with finals...let's hope we can survive :)
