Our first July 4th was so fun! That morning, we found an awesome mall about 3 miles from us called Town Square. It reminded me of Riverwoods in Provo - nice and clean!! Rare for Vegas. I'll definitely be back :) Jaren even let me get some great sale stuff at H&M and picked out a way cute shirt for me, haha. He's so fun to take shopping. He must have been feeling guilty for his big golf clubs purchase last week...
Then we grabbed a bite to eat at Chile's and decided we would just head over to the strip and try to find something to do that night. LITTLE DID I KNOW that Jaren already had plans of his own. We have been talking about going to a show all month, but we didn't want to see a Cirque De Soleil because we've seen something like that just last year along with the Donnie and Marie show with my family. They were incredible shows and definitely my favorite part about Las Vegas. If I had it my way, every LV vacation would be spent in the theaters. The Cirque shows are AMAZING, but expensive, and really.. once you see one, you've seen 'em all.
I've had my eyes on ONE billboard for past 4 weeks: Celine.
Jaren knew it. With our final days together coming to a close, I was trying not to get my hopes up. I was just happy to be here and would follow jaren anywhere. So that night, he suggested we park at Caesar's Palace and walk around and maybe catch a water show at the Bellagio nearby (our make-shift fireworks). We walked into Ceasar's right next to the box office, so we decided to go take a look just to see how much tickets were for Celine. It looked like a show was about to start! I was soo jealous of all the people going into the Colosseum theatre. I was daydreaming so much I didn't even notice jar walking up to the ticket-takers. He was like... "let's just go in here and see how much tickets are."I was pulling his arm and telling him that there was no way they'd let us through without tickets. DUH. He didn't listen to me and we went through security. I was getting worried they'd kick us out so I just tried to be discrete. 
Then BAM. He whips two tickets out of his wallet.
My eyes opened so wide and my jaw, even wider. I just stared at jaren, then I started laughing so hard. Then I cried. Then we went up a *few* escalators to our seats, haha. They weren't the closest, but it was just right! I kept asking him how much he spent and how he did this and when he bought them. I was in heaven. I had absolutely no idea this was coming!!! He is getting soo good at surprising me. I was grinning from ear to ear the whole show. She is such a strong, amazing singer!!! She did all my favorites: I'm Your Lady, Beauty and the Beast, even Open Arms and that one by Adel, Rollin' in the Deep (which was WAY better when she sang it). She did that thing that happens at every concert when the performers leave and it stays dark, and everyone chants ENCORE! Jaren leaned over to me and said, "She better come back and sing Titanic. That's the only one I know!" hahaha. Sure enough.... he was right! It was so cool. SO COOL. 
We made a few stops on the way back to our car... (notice he's "playing" all by himself). And I had to get a pic with Tiffany's! We matched. 
Jaren is so thoughtful and LIVES for surprising me. I'm so lucky to have him. He spoils me rotten! 
Better watch out, jar. I'm gonna get you back! ;)
