For those of you who saw my post on my goals for 2018, you know that every month I’ll be reading one new book, learning one new recipe, and trying on new fitness studio. Well, I can proudly say I survived the first month with all my goals still on track, though it did require a lot of last-minute reading (about 70 pages if I’m being honest).
Have you ever had a meal so good that you didn’t want to brush your teeth before bed because you never wanted the taste of delicious steak to go away? If your answer is no then you’ve obviously never been to Bavette’s Bar & Boeuf. (And incase you were concerned about my dental hygiene – yes I did brush my teeth that night). Last night Jackson and I went there for a dinner to celebrate my birthday and his new position on a prestigious choir, (ok we had the reservation before we realized those things, but it’s always more fun to go out for a celebration) and the whole meal reminded me why I truly love good food.
The other week I was in Vegas for a work conference. First off, let me tell you that traveling for a work conference is one of the most exhausting things I have ever done. From the hours of networking to the long days in high heels, I’ll probably be recovering for a week. And it didn’t help that I was there during a heat wave. I left the hotel no more than 3 times – twice to get in Ubers to dinner, and once at night to see the fountain at the Bellagio. Mind you it was 101 degrees out at 11:30pm.
But after my conference ended I wanted to stay in Vegas an extra day to treat myself to a show. After looking at some reviews and seeing what had tickets available, I opted for the Michael Jackson ONE show by Cirque du Soliel. Not only was I able to find a ticket, but I got myself a front row seat.
