I’m writing this in advance because this weekend, Mike and I are in Las Vegas. It’s our first no-kids getaway since…um…gosh…maybe two-and-a-half years? Anyway, we are looking forward to spending time together, AND we are finally seeing Britney Spears! Mike gave me tickets to see her show for Christmas eight months ago so I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for months. I spent some birthday gift certificates on my concert outfit: I bought this fun skirt (it was missing a few sequin/mirror things so it was 60% off, and then I just replaced them myself) and this top (also on sale). I can’t wait!
