Let me start off by saying that this weekend was THE weekend. Like the one I will remember endlessly, unforgettably, for the rest of my life. In May, I had gone ahead and finally purchased the tickets of a lifetime- my almost 17-year-old dream was about to come true- I purchased tickets for Britney Spears' Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. I swore the day was going to take forever to get here, but it came and it went, and it was all sorts of magical (imagine getting to see someone you have been listening to since you were 10?! Exactly). We packed up and headed to Vegas Friday after work, dropped of Zoey at her "pet hotel" (ha!), completely cheated and gave into my cravings for Wendy's, and we were off. We ended up in Primm, Nevada, stayed at some random resort LITERALLY feet away from the state line, and jetted off to sleep, for in less than 24 hours I was about to live my life-long dream. (PLEASE IMAGINE ME LAUGHING AT MYSELF WHILE I TYPE ALL OF THIS BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I SOUND SO DRAMATIC, IT IS SOO TRUE!). Anyway, the next morning, we got up, ate, when to the mall next door, then drove 30 minutes to Vegas, where we totally scored at Savers, I tried my first chai latte from Starbucks, and gambled away at the Hard Rock Hotel while we waited for our room to be ready. Hours passed, we checked in, and got ready. Let's just say that the rest of the night was beyond EPIC, I saw Britney close-by, I teared up, and just like that, it was over. Unreal. I have to go back. And get closer. Afterwards, we stayed at Planet Hollywood and gambled some more while I drank some cool (pun intended) water, since the show left me with a dry throat. It rained the next day off and on, but it didn't ruin my plans of finally stopping around random places and taking photos of this insane pair of headphones, courtesy of Skullcandy. This pair is actually made for women, and their line comes in a variety of designs, along with a chic pouch and comfortable ear pads with one of the clearest, "natural sounding vocals and and custom-tuned acoustics". Not bad for a brand that started off as one for "just the guys".
