Gigi and Fiori's birthdays are four days apart at the end of March.  So when I saw that Justin Bieber was performing in Las Vegas on March 25, I knew what I was getting the girls for their gifts.  It was going to be Gigi's second Bieber concert with me, and Fiori's first concert evah, but I'm not even going to pretend I did it solely for them.  There's just something about this kid that's amazing, and he puts on a really good show. 

I don't know what I was thinking when I gave them the tickets without taking videos.  Who even am I?  I gave Gigi hers the night before, when we hanging out at my parents' house, just slid the envelope to her and said I was giving her an early gift.  She opened it, realized what it was, began screaming and jumping around, could barely breathe as she called her mom, pretty sure she punched me or something, and I quietly ducked away while she continued screaming and with my parents giving her the side-eye.

Fiori's reaction was the complete opposite.  We went over there the day of the concert, the day of her birthday, and gave her the gift.  She opened it, read it slowly, and was completely speechless with the biggest smile on her face.  Then she hugged her dog.  It was really sweet and the perfect reaction from her, the kid who never shuts up! 

That afternoon, I had to play it cool while getting ready.  After I straightened my hair, Claire asked if she could come to my meeting with me.  That's either a sign I need to actually "do" my hair more often, and that the only place I ever leave her home to go is GOTR meetings.  Anyway, so when I was ready DP took her out to the park so it would be easy for me to leave, and I made him take a couple of pictures of us.  That's why they turned out ridiculous.  I'm not even looking at the camera!

I picked up the girls and took pictures of them in front of my mom's house. Gigi had made signs to put up in my car windows, and I'm glad we left early to head to the MGM because we were gridlocked in concert traffic for damn near an hour on the exit ramp. People in cars around us kept commenting on how cute the girls were. 

Post Malone was the opener, and we got there just in time for his last song.  I settled the girls and told them I was going to get a beer.  When I got back to my seat, the girls were jumping around singing about getting saucy or something, and I knew they were having a good time already.  Bieber was great, of course, very engaging and like I knew it would be, just a really good show.  My favourite moment of the whole concert was the song he sang with just his guitar.  It was everyone else's too.
