VEGAS!

Thank you so much for all the well-wishes for Vegas. We had such a great time, and my brother's film Easier with Practice won the Grand Jury prize at the CineVegas Film Festival!!! How incredible is that? He is off to Edinburgh now for another festival. This one is even bigger, so I am excited for more people to see the film!

I thought I would share some photos from our trip!


The movie had top billing on the marquee! 
My brother and I before the premiere.
Kyle on the red carpet! Thank goodness I am tall with long arms, I was able to take pictures above the press :).
Me and my hubby exploring Vegas.
The fountain show at the Bellagio is so beautiful! We watched it twice!
This art installation was at our hotel. It made me endlessly happy. There were lights that scrolled down to look like rain. It was seriously beautiful!
Look at those gorgeous umbrellas! So much inspiration in this photo! :)
Mike and I went to see the Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil show, and we loved it!! It was absolutely incredible. I love the Beatles so much, and they use original recordings that are remixed to fit the show. It is not a cover band or anything like that. That made it more amazing because no one can top the Fab Four! They also put Blackbird in the show which made me so happy. I will leave you with the lyrics to this amazing song:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Thank you so much for visiting! 

Have an amazing day,
kelly marie

PS. I am hoping to finish work early so I can enter Dawn's color contest! :)

  3. Ahhh...you were at the Bellagio! I went to see "Love" right after it opened and was enjoying it immensely...then the show broke down. :( They had to refund our money. Sad, huh? I lived there and haven't had the chance to go back...and now I moved away. I hope to go back and see the rest some day.

    Congrats to your brother and I'm so glad you had an amazing experience! That's what it's supposed to be like. YAY!!!
