Trading in my hiking shoes for heels, the BMA’s reminded me of another reason Vegas is so awesome – the entertainment!!!

(That, and I have the best boyfriend ever.)

One week before the show: We’re standing in the kitchen; he’s reading the mail, and I’m making lunch.

Him: Any shows you’re interested in going to over the next couple of weeks?

Me: Um…the Billboard Music Awards are coming up…that would be pretty awesome.

Him: Ok, let me see what I can do.

A few hours later…

Him: Done

Me: What?

Him: Billboard Music Awards, this Sunday…hopefully, decent seats.

Me: Dances around the apartment like Miley Cyus circa this year, but post Hannah Montana…

Fast Forward…

The night was freaking awesome!!!

Highlights of the night: Seeing Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Miley Cyrus, Julia Michaels, Celine Dion, Cher, and Imagine Dragons perform!

Also…seeing Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Ludacris, Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus’s little sister present!

So in other words, everything!

Walking into the event, which took place at the T-Mobile Arena was really neat; the energy was super high as fans lined the streets hoping to see all of their favorite celebrities arriving to the venue.

Of course it was like 90 degrees out, but I didn’t mind the heat one bit. I think I’m starting to get used to this crazy dry heat.
