Date night: Book of Mormon

It seems like forever ago, It was actually January 21st. 
We were both home P said lets do something and I said find something for us to do.

Well, he stumbled across the musical, Book of Mormon as an option.
If you didn't know they do a lottery before every performance to fill the open seats. 
If you win the lottery it is $25 (cash only) and they give you a seat, pretty good for a musical)
We found this out when P lived in Chicago, but was never chosen.

We also planned a free dinner concert plan just incase we didn't get tickets. 
So we headed out to Hollywood and crossed our fingers.
We filled out our ballots with those little tiny pencils you can barely write with 
and took a seat on the floor  of the beautiful foyer. 

Well, they did the lottery and little did we know if was opening night.
They just kept drawing which seemed like 40+ names. 
They finally drew P's name and boom we were in!

YAY! it was so exciting.
We took out our handy dandy yelp out and found an awsome gastro pub that had pizzas & salads,
( I don't remember the name but its across the street from Amoeba)
which we probably would have never found. 

Than headed back over to the show.
Little did we know that our seats were in the FIRST ROW, it was so cool to see them sweat and spit as they sang, it made them more human.
It was not what I was expecting, I am not sure what I was expecting.
BUT, I absolutely loved it.
Go team Arnold. :)

Date night: Vegas

Back in January, ( P's birthday to be exact)
We had an opportunity to fly to Vegas for free for dinner 

So a few people from his work hoped in the plane and off we went

The air port in Vegas is parallel to the strip and these are photos from when we were landing

We landed and promptly went to dinner at Tommy Bahamas. We didn't have a lot of time since we were picking up P's boss who was flying to Vegas that night. 

And than we came home. It was a pretty fun last minute birthday dinner instead of going to Disneyland as planned.

Have you ever done anything crazy, last minute?

Marathon #9: recap

So, marathon #9.. What can I say..
You were hot, you were miserable and you were.. Fun?!

Yeah this marathon was just about having fun and enjoying the experience. 
We walked most of it for fear of over heating, in which my mom and I have have both been through and it is not fun. My dr had also told me that if I did not drink enough wart I could have contractions and well that didn't sound like fun either.
In total I probably drank 10 liters (yup 5 of those 2L bottles of soda) and went to the bathroom over 12x, that is not an exaggeration. 

My hands even swelled up to the point I couldn't bend them.. But hey I finished.
Ate some mcdonalds and my hands immediately went down, probably from high intake of water without the salt intake.

All in all, we finished.. That's what matters.

Here are the photos we took along the way
 (I can't figure out how to arrange them on my ipad, so deal with it)

Marathon #9

Yup, I can not believe this is MARATHON #9.. geez.
Here are my thoughts, emotions, and words on the matter. 
(Here's a recap of last years race, in case you missed it.)

Listen up, mother marathon .. I AM NOT AFRAID OF YOU!
Did I get your attention? Good, its about time.
Yup, its taken me over 10 years and 9 of these things to get the guts to say that.

Well, the thing is that this race is strictly for fun.
Yeah, I have always said that but this time it is for real.
This baby and I are not going to PR, we are not aiming for a magic time, I don't really care about the weather.. that much, and you know the time change. Yeah, well I won't sleep anyways.

I am out there to finish smiling and have fun. That's it
