The Date Night Diaries

If you missed the The Date Night Diaries blogs gone by, go here and here. For my birthday last month, my hubby had shopped for (all by himself!) and brought home a Bebe dress for me. I was excited to have a fun place to wear it out to. I will be the first to admit that I'm not really big on the "brand name" stuff. I don't care about labels....I care about cuteness. I am just as likely to wear a pair of Walmart Capri's than I am to wear a label. However, there is just something about Bebe that I love. I love almost every piece of clothing under the name.






I took the hubby to Rosemary's since he had never been. I had such an amazing time the first time I went, I just HAD to get back ASAP. And let me tell ya, it was just as good the second time. I ordered the "tasting" courses again, where you get 5 plates of a smaller portion of the chef's preferred food, while the husband had 3 courses of larger portions. All of our plates were fantastic. The service was perfection. As I've said before, skip the swank dining on the strip. Make a reservation at Rosemary's instead. You wont regret it.






We were enjoying our food so much that we almost showed up late for the main event- Kathy Griffin! Of course I didn't take any pictures.....because they weren't allowed......okay.....maybe... just... one.....or five. But I HAD to take something to remember that I was actually there! I had planned to get a T-shirt for myself and my friend, Dawn, but the lines were so damn long- full of hysterical gay guys that were really loud- that I didn't have the patience to stand in line. Which is why it made my pictures so essential.


Kathy was hilarious. The best part? Other than laughing until I cried, it was hearing her say "Fuuuuck!" instead of "F-BEEP!" like on TV. Sometimes, when I go long periods without a break from my kids, I start to feel like I need something adult to remind me that I'm still one myself. Hearing Kathy Griffin say fuck was just what I needed to remember I'm really 31, not 13. She made fun of the Lohans, Justin Timberlake, and most of all Miley Cyrus. She brought in a little shock factor, but I was surprised at how safe her routine was. I guess I was expecting my jaw to drop more than it did. This is Vegas, after all. It ain't Nebraska. Not that there's anything wrong with Nebraska! The thing I liked the most about her act? She is completely up-to-date. She was telling jokes about things that happened a few days before! Loved that. Would I recommend seeing her? Absolutely. As long as you don't mind her saying "holy fuck balls" every few minutes.


After the show, we hit the elevator in Mandalay Bay up to The Foundation Room. The place has amazing ambiance and, if you take a quick walk outside to their patio, you get views that no other hotel/casino can give you. It's fun to stand just outside the door, and listen to people's reactions as the first lay eyes on the view. "Wow!" "Holy shit!" and "Oh my god!" are common phrases there.









And, about an hour into The Foundation Room, My husband and I were tired and ready to go home. It was about 10:30pm. I know, I'm wild. But I had had my fill of fun for the night. Hopefully it wont be six months until my hubby and I can get out again....
