One Night in Vegas - USA Road Trip Part 3

When you go to Vegas, people presume you are going for a number of reasons:
1) Gambling
2) Drinking
3) The clubs
4) The hotels

No-one expected the reason we were driving to Las Vegas from LA was to see Britney Spears. But it's true! We drove to Vegas via Baker to spend just one night in Vegas and for one reason only - to see Britney.

It has been said before and I am sure it will be said again that I am a slight fan girl when it comes to Britney. This was the 7th time I had seen her live, and thankfully it lived up to every expectation.

However to get there we had a five hour drive from Anaheim (after checking lost property at Disneyland) to Las Vegas. The road was mostly long and straight, and great to drive. We listened to Ms Spears the entire way and it was awesome. And HOT!

Love these roads and in 99 degrees F with the top down this is what road trips are meant to be
Someone kindly drew our journey on the side of a building in Baker
We arrived at 4pm and drove up to the Mirage, handed our keys to the valet and checked in. Next stop was out strip view room for a quick change of outfit and then straight to the pool. Five minutes later, with a margarita in hand we were loving Vegas and getting slightly merry.

Reliving the bachelorette party!
Dinner was at Guy Fieri's Diner. The food was delicious and portion sizes gigantic but it was perfect for sharing and to fill us up for the night ahead. Next stop was BRITNEY!!!!

The Mac n Cheese burger to the left, and truffle fries to the right - both are highly recommended!!!
Britney's Piece of Me show is at Planet Hollywood, which thankfully is central on the Strip so we were able to make it to the venue with plenty of time to get drinks and take pictures. When we were shown to our seats I almost cried. We were only seven rows back! We were close enough that we could see her without a camera zoom and it made the performance even better. What's more, we were surrounded by Britney fans who joined me in singing every word to every song. We danced, we sang and we enjoyed a delicious margarita that I hold solely responsible for the final picture below! The show was everything we hoped for and more. The set was incredible, the set list was perfect and the atmosphere was brilliant. The great seat helped and getting covered in the confetti added a certain something but halfway through L turning to me and saying we should see if we can come again in 2017 was my highlight. I am so lucky to have a wife that is willing to indulge me!

It's Britney B!tch
Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol!!!
