Beatles LOVE

This weekend I went to Las Vegas with a couple of friends in my ward. We went to attend a photography workshop on lighting. The workshop was all day today. It was really great... but I felt kind of lost. I need to buy some lighting equipment and I need to start practicing... a lot. The workshop was awesome though and I was blown away by these photographers. Their photos are incredible.

We are staying with my BFF Lolly. We came in late Friday night and were gone all day today.. I wanted to spend some quality time with my BFF. So we had a girls night on the town and went to see "Beatles LOVE". We both had never seen this show and had been wanting to. I have been talking about wanting to see it for the past year because I had heard it was so awesome. So... we got ready (I got Lollified) and took some pictures before we left. I love our girls night outings. I miss them.

We drove down to the strip to the Mirage Hotel & Casino and when I started to see the signs... I started to get more and more excited for the show. I have always wanted to see Cirque De Soleil. When we got to the theater, we got our tickets and I started to check out the theater. Kind of trippy in an awesome way. Kind of like what a lot of the Beatles music is. :o)

Then we sat down for our show. It was about an  hour and a half with no breaks. The whole show I sat in amazement watching them dance and do these amazing tricks that they make look so easy. It was always so visually pleasing too. Always doing something different. I think some of my favorite numbers was "Help" they did these cool roller skating tricks, I loved "Lucy in the sky with Diamonds" cause they made us look like we were in space. Also "Octopus's Garden" they had some amazing jelly fish costumes and did a good job of making it look like they were in the sea. They did a lot of really awesome things. I loved it. We both did. Makes me want to go back and see other Cirque De Soleil shows.

After the show we took a few pictures and headed back home. So glad that I got to see Lolly and that we could have a fun night out seeing an awesome show. It was great to get away for the weekend. Thanks Lolly!

I saw O and loved it. I thought about it for a long time afterwards. Cirque du Soleil is awesome. I think the next time I go to Vegas I want to see all of their shows.
