Worth the Wait!

Back in November of 2007 (feels like forever ago) Justin surprised me with tickets to Celine Dion for our anniversary. I had been wanting to see her in Vegas forever and then it ended and I was so bummed out. So when I saw these tickets I started screaming I was so excited! He had lined up babysitters, we were going to spend the night, it was going to be great. Plus....it was only two days away! WRONG! I got looking at the tickets and they said Nov. 2008. Oh! What a bummer! Poor Justin was so disappointed! Oh well, at least we had something to look forward to next year. Well, November 2008 rolled around (we'd had another baby by now, and didn't know if the concert was even a possibility) And come to find out, the concert had been postponed to February! We were begining to think this just wasn't meant to be! Lucky for us, time flies, and let me just say....It was worth the wait! It was the best concert I have ever been to. (Not that I have been to a lot, but still) She was totally amazing! I loved every second of it! We had incredible seats too, so that was just another bonus! When she walked out on the ramp we were only 8 rows back! It was awesome! It all worked out great. My super awesome mom kept my kids (with a little help from a great sister and sister-in-laws) and we got to spend the night. A night away is nothing short of a miracle when you have five kids! It was so fun to spend time with Justin. We ate A LOT, shopped just a little (I didn't marry a big shopping fan) and had a great time. Now Justin thinks he's already off the hook for our anniversary this year....wrong again!! :)

Waiting for the concert to start

I couldn't believe how close we were!

I'm so glad we snuck our cameras in! :)

How can someone sing so good, and look so good too?! WOW!

I am glad that it was worth the wait. I have heard that she is really good, and her concert's are the best. And the best part would that you were able to go just the 2 of you. I love doing things like that. I am jealous. And how did you get your camera's in? I thought they were kinda like the Nazi's when it came to that.

Looks like you had a really good time. I'm jealous that you got to get away for the night. Your right that it takes a miracle to get away when you have 5 kids. Glad you had fun!

I'm glad it was worth the wait for you! I was excited for you when you said you got to stay over night. I hope I can look that good when I'm as old as Celine! (I wish I could look that good now!)

Holy awesome concert! I bet that was amazing...sounds like it was a blast. Good for you! I laughed when you said that getting away with 5 kids is a miracle, cuz I totally feel that way with only 4!! That's so fun for you guys!

I'm so glad you guys made it there and got to spend the night, but most of all eat some good food. I know deep down that was really the best part!
