Bryce's friend Rhonda is the dean of career services at the University of Houston Law Center. They have been friends for a long time, since they went to law school. Luckily for us, Rhonda had a conference here in Las Vegas, so she got to visit. Went to lunch with Bryce one day and had dinner with us another. And we even saw the Cirque show Mystere WHICH WAS AWESOME.

Mystère is classic Cirque du Soleil, combining the powerful athleticism, high-energy acrobatics and inspiring imagery that has become the company's hallmark. Deemed a theatrical "flower in the desert," Mystère thrills generations of audiences with its exhilarating blend of whimsy, drama and the unimaginable brought to life on stage. Presented exclusively at Treasure Island, Mystère provides the ultimate discovery that life itself is a mystery.

I would add that it was CRAZY and weird and cool and amazing.

Seriously, how do they do that?

Before the show we went to dinner at the Grand Luxe Cafe in the Venetian, where we caught up on each other's lives (though I was the only one out of the loop) and had a great time. It's hard to believe that one of Rhonda's daughters is getting married and the other one is in college. Those girls gave Tyce a Cookie Monster tape when he was a toddler! We sang those songs until the tape fell to pieces.

I enjoyed spending time with my handsome husband!

And it's always nice having friends come into town. We need a good excuse to venture into the city!
