My birthday was yesterday [the 30th] and it was great!
On Saturday Matt and I went to Monster Mini Golf because I looove mini golf. I wish I could find some places with moving obstacles and crazy course set-ups, but I think mini golf has pretty much lost it's popularity :(
However, I really liked the monster theme and black light activated course this place had and it ended up being a lot of fun. Matt and I even tied on the score--60 points each! They also had an arcade which I wasn't expecting [I ended up getting a cute wiggy eye elephant ring with our tickets] and their birthday party rooms were set-up like a spooky haunted mansion. We received a buy one get one coupon so we will probably go back and try to beat our scores. :D We ended the night by coming home and stuffing our faces with cookie cake--my favorite kind of cake!
On Sunday we lounged around and then got dressed to go see CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: OVO! I have been wanting to go to one of their show's since I heard about them in middle school-- so I was pretty excited when Matt gave me the tickets on Christmas. Before heading to the big top we had dinner at Iberian Pig and tried a few of the tapas. It was all really good and they even surprised me with a birthday desert which I had been secretly eyeing on the menu. Mango, raspberry, and passion fruit sorbet rolled in white chocolate, served with fresh whipped cream and seasonal berries...it was amazing.
Once we arrived at the show and found our seats I became even more excited. Our seats were great--dead-on center! Everything about the show was just as I had imagined and now I am even more determined to see their other shows now. I really want to see "O" in Las Vegas...has anyone seen it?
