We had one heck of a trip for our anniversary this year!!! Jon & I have missed being together the past 2 years on our anniversary since he was deployed so we had to make up for those lost celebrations. So for our 7th wedding anniversary we took off for VeGaS!!!

We flew direct from XNA to Vegas on Allegiant Air's first flight which started off things right. "Elvis" gave away free t-shirts and decks or cards as we boarded the plane and there was even a showgirl there to greet us at the airport. We were so excited to get there! We arrived in Vegas about 10pm and took the shuttle down the strip to our hotel. The strip is so amazing and alive with all the lights and people and excitement, it was the perfect time to arrive. We were blessed with a anniversary gift of a swanky suite at the Palazzo for our stay which was so awesome. The views were of Treasure Island, the pools and strip. It couldn't have been any better!

I won't give a play by play of the entire weekend but just some of the highlights...

One of our families favorite things to do, especially me being in the food business, is try new restaraunts. Vegas did NOT dissapoint with providing tons of options for dining at new places. We did sushi for lunch one day at RA in the Fashion Show Mall and it was amazing. Great music, staff and vibe along with the BEST sushi we have ever had. Jon ordered their special Las Vegas roll which was better than any desse

rt you'll ever have! For an appertizer we had these one of a kind Spicy Pineapple Cream Cheese Wontons which I am now struggling to re-create at home. Anyway try RA for sure if you are into Sushi.[gallery columns="2"]

My favorite place we ate the entire time was Yolos, in the Planet Hollywood Hotel. It was an upscale and super yummy mexican restaraunt. They had superior Chips and Salsa that were so beautifully presented as well. I ordered street tacos that were dIvINe! We MUST eat there again when we go back.

Overall, out trip to Vegas was a great trip exploring a city together just Jon and I. We have been together for 9 years total and 7 years of marriage...of course they haven't been perfect but I wouldn't want to share my life, or this trip with anyone but him. He's the best! I am so blessed and lucky (since we are talking Vegas) to be able to call him my husband. He is a great husband, always seeking to make me happy, but he's also an awesome dad, man of God, provider and a great soldier.
