Part 1

October is officially my favorite month for two reasons: I got married in October and also because it's Breast Cancer Awareness month :)

I have been super busy traveling (valid excuse for not updating my blog, ha!) And when I say 'super busy' I'm talking about traveling to 2 different states and a country, all in one month! Well well well...going back to my one year wedding anniversary weekend in Vegas- let me start off by saying that it was AMAZING (I have the sweetest husband EVER, seriously)! We got there on a Thursday. Checked into our hotel (Aria), dropped our luggage into our room and went out for a stroll. We got hungry pretty fast so we grabbed dinner at Serendipity, watched the fountain show at the Bellagio, went back to our room and passed out. Next morning we woke up pretty early, got ready and continued where we had left off the night before. By around 1 pm, Hubs left to go attend the Friday prayer and I went back to the hotel to offer my Friday prayer. After hubs was done, he picked me up from the hotel and we continued walking along the Las Vegas Blvd. At about 7 pm, we grabbed some popcorn and went to watch Cirque Du Soleil (Zarkana)- which, by the way, was aahhhh-mazing! After the show, we walked around some more and returned to our room by midnight. As I enter the room, I find a plate with chocolate covered strawberries, rose petals, a single red rose, gift bags and 2 cards on the bed. I read the card first and cried like a baby.  I will cry if I read the card right now and I will probably cry when I read it 10 years from now. It was the sweetest ever! When I opened the gift bag, I almost DIED. There they were, the beautiful Louboutins. Y'all, I fell in love. I think I jumped up and down for ten minutes in disbelief. Ahhhhhhhh. The second bag had the cutest Uggs ever (breast cancer edition).

Even though we were in a different state, hubs coordinated with the staff of Aria and put together a great surprise- leaving me speechless, once again.

The morning of our anniversary, we ate breakfast and explored the north end of the strip. We were so tired of walking so much that we had to stop by the mall and grab us some crocs. After purchasing the ever so great crocs, we ate our anniversary lunch at RA sushi which was followed by a romantic gondola ride at the Venetian. After the gondola ride, we walked over to Paris and went up the Eiffel Tower. Later, we grabbed some dinner and called it a night. We woke up early again on Sunday. I quickly packed and got ready. We went to eat the buffet over at the Cosmopolitan and after that we hoped on a plane back to Chicago. 

It has been a great one year with this sweet guy I have the honor of calling my husband. I have been blessed and I can't stop thanking God for sending such an amazing guy my way.

With that said, stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!

Happy November :)
