With Texas being two hours different than Nevada time, if it was 8 AM in Texas, that meant it was 6 AM in Vegas. So, I basically woke up every single day we were in Vegas at 6-6:30 AM. With no alarm clock. Sad, yup, but it made getting back to Texas time that much easier!
Anyway, so my mom and I wake up early, get ready, and head down to breakfast. Today was the first day of the conference, but the first session I wanted to attend didn't start til 11 or so, so my mom and I decided to explore the strip some more. We headed down towards the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Hotel. Yes, the one with the gondolas.

Following my presentation, I went upstairs and changed because tonight was Beatles LOVE! We headed to dinner at Mesa Grill, the restaurant owned by Bobby Flay. It was soooooo good...

The show was absolutely amazing! If you've never seen a Cirque du Soleil show, you should go. It was my first one and I was blown away. I have seen a lot of good shows in my life, and it was definitely in the top few. Especially since I'm a Beatles fan! The dancing, acrobatics, gymnastics, etc etc--- just fantastic.
And now to leave you with one of my favorite Beatles' quotes:
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
