Way back in January when I was in the midst of my week long birthday celebration I mentioned that one of the super fantastic presents that my husband Mike gave me were tickets to see Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes on the Jay & Silent Bob Get Old Tour! After all this waiting it was finally time for the big show!!

Now because Mike is awesome and tomorrow is the 11 year anniversary of when we started dating we turned tickets to the show into a little mid-week getaway! Yesterday I worked only half a day and then we headed to the Royal Pacific Resort over at Universal and checked in and kicked off a much needed 24 hour escape! The hotel is beautiful, we had a great room, we explored, we had drinks, we laughed. We had an absolutely spectacular meal at Emeril's - I mean seriously spectacular and after dinner we took our full and happy selves over to Hard Rock for the show!

Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier kicked off the show with an hour and a half Smodcast recording! Hysterical! I laughed so hard!! Then the next hour and a half was Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes - also hysterical and at parts a little sad but a magical evening! After the show Mike and I strolled back to the hotel in the pouring rain, we laughed and talked and went over our favorite parts of the show and the evening as a whole.

This morning we woke up to tornado warnings - WHAT?! I've probably mentioned before I am absolutely petrified to drive in the rain and the weather forecast was grim and had the rain not letting up until much later tonight. So we took our time getting ready for the day and checking out and then had a fabulous breakfast at one of the hotel's restaurants it was nice and relaxing and then hand in hand we walked and explored the hotel, did a little shopping and then I made a command decision - We're going home! As much as I would have loved to stay at the hotel I knew we had to get home too. So off we went, picked Hooper up from my friend's house and then came home. Sure I had a white knuckle grip on the steering wheel most of the way but we made it safe and sound and have not moved from the couch since! The fur babies have taken turns coming to cuddle with us I guess even though we were only gone over night they missed us!

I hope all my Florida friends are safe and sound as it is still absolutely pouring rain out there!
