I thought I would have plenty of time to create the perfect review once I returned home from vacation but now that I'm here I realize how busy things are back in reality, so I'll keep it short.

My boyfriend (Ever/CertPharmT15) and I had been planning a nice long vacation in California to visit with my family whom I hadn't seen in over 9 months, and we thought it would be fun if we made a pit stop in Vegas while on the west coast.

On Friday, May 25, my mom, her husband, Ever and I piled into the car and headed off on our 3 1/2 hour drive to "sin city".  We planned on arriving sometime between 2 and 3pm, checking into the hotel, getting lunch, and heading to the Colosseum.  As far as I was aware we didn't have any tickets for the show and the plan was to wait in the stand by line and get whatever was available.  At 6:00pm Ever and I were dressed in our "Celine wear" (I wore a white suit and he wore a matching white dress shirt and slacks) and approaching the dreaded stand by line.  There was about 15 people ahead of us in line so my hopes for getting anything in the front were fading fast.  Around 7:00pm, my mom and her husband showed up saying they had decided to see if they could get tickets too.  At 8:00pm, it was finally our turn at the ticket counter.  My mom and her husband were able to get tickets in 1mezz 4 row B, which they were extremely excited about.  Then when I asked what the closest tickets available were a woman with a walkie talkie and clipboard walked up and said she had just released 2 Orch 4 row AA tickets. Ever immediately handed over his credit card.  I was so excited to have front row again, I ran over to my mom and told her the good news.  While I was talking to my mom and her husband I noticed that Ever was talking to someone we knew who worked at the box office, but I figured he was just saying a quick hello.

Next we headed into the Colosseum, gave a quick hug to my mom, and went to our seats.  Shortly after we sat down, that all too familiar voice "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to A New Day..." just after, the camera swiveled a little and began to zoom in on Ever and I.  I gave it a little wave figuring it would would move on but it didn't.  Suddenly Ever stood up next to me, reached for my hand and asked me to stand up with him.  My heart began to pound!  As I stood the lights in the Colosseum dimmed and 2 spot lights focused in on us.  Ever bent down onto one knee still holding my hand.  It was then that the Colosseum exploded, all I could hear was the screams and cheers of the crowd.  I glanced to my right and saw that we were still on screen.  Next Ever reached in his pocket, pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him.  I immediately said YES and pulled him to his feet.  We hugged for a bit then turned and waived to the audience then to the camera and sat down.  The camera man gave us a thumbs up then began pulling out as the music began.

As for the actual show, IT WAS AMAZING! Celine was full of energy and playful as always.  I really enjoyed the changes and the new costumes.

The one piece that really impressed me was River Deep Mountain High.  I have never liked the song so I figured the performance would forgettable on my list. Boy was I wrong!  It was amazing...probably my new favorite of the show.  Celine was smoking hot and the dancers were phenomenal.

At the end Celine gave the rose to the couple next to us, they had just gotten married before the show and they were really excited that Celine had known.

After the show ended, we had so many people come down to us and congratulate us, it was so nice.  As we were walking towards the lobby, Patrick Angelil approached us, gave us both a hug and congratulated us as well.  We also ran into Michael, who was super sweet as usual and we told him how Ever and I had met because of Celine so it made sense for him to propose at the show.  The rest of the night, everywhere we went we heard "oh those are the ones who got engaged".  It was really cool, I felt like a star.

The next day, we stopped by the Colosseum to say another thank you to those who made the proposal possible and we ran into Dion (one of the dancers).  He was walking up behind us and remembered us from the night before. He said congrats and told us that Celine and the dancers had been warming up backstage when he saw us on screen.  He said he yelled for everyone and they all ran over to watch.  It really made me feel special.

The rest of the day and the next were spent just hanging out, casino hopping and shopping.  It was a nice change from my regular hectic Vegas trips.

Congratulations to my daughter (Stacy) & my future son-in-law (Ever).

The show was incredible (my 2nd time) but I will never forget the 'proposal'.  

Public thanks to Ever for letting me in on the secret ahead of time so I could be there to see him "pop-the-question".

Jen (aka...Stacy's mama)

I thought I would have plenty of time to create the perfect review once I returned home from vacation but now that I'm here I realize how busy things are back in reality, so I'll keep it short.

My boyfriend (Ever/CertPharmT15) and I had been planning a nice long vacation in California to visit with my family whom I hadn't seen in over 9 months, and we thought it would be fun if we made a pit stop in Vegas while on the west coast.

On Friday, May 25, my mom, her husband, Ever and I piled into the car and headed off on our 3 1/2 hour drive to "sin city".  We planned on arriving sometime between 2 and 3pm, checking into the hotel, getting lunch, and heading to the Colosseum.  As far as I was aware we didn't have any tickets for the show and the plan was to wait in the stand by line and get whatever was available.  At 6:00pm Ever and I were dressed in our "Celine wear" (I wore a white suit and he wore a matching white dress shirt and slacks) and approaching the dreaded stand by line.  There was about 15 people ahead of us in line so my hopes for getting anything in the front were fading fast.  Around 7:00pm, my mom and her husband showed up saying they had decided to see if they could get tickets too.  At 8:00pm, it was finally our turn at the ticket counter.  My mom and her husband were able to get tickets in 1mezz 4 row B, which they were extremely excited about.  Then when I asked what the closest tickets available were a woman with a walkie talkie and clipboard walked up and said she had just released 2 Orch 4 row AA tickets. Ever immediately handed over his credit card.  I was so excited to have front row again, I ran over to my mom and told her the good news.  While I was talking to my mom and her husband I noticed that Ever was talking to someone we knew who worked at the box office, but I figured he was just saying a quick hello.

Next we headed into the Colosseum, gave a quick hug to my mom, and went to our seats.  Shortly after we sat down, that all too familiar voice "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to A New Day..." just after, the camera swiveled a little and began to zoom in on Ever and I.  I gave it a little wave figuring it would would move on but it didn't.  Suddenly Ever stood up next to me, reached for my hand and asked me to stand up with him.  My heart began to pound!  As I stood the lights in the Colosseum dimmed and 2 spot lights focused in on us.  Ever bent down onto one knee still holding my hand.  It was then that the Colosseum exploded, all I could hear was the screams and cheers of the crowd.  I glanced to my right and saw that we were still on screen.  Next Ever reached in his pocket, pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him.  I immediately said YES and pulled him to his feet.  We hugged for a bit then turned and waived to the audience then to the camera and sat down.  The camera man gave us a thumbs up then began pulling out as the music began.

As for the actual show, IT WAS AMAZING! Celine was full of energy and playful as always.  I really enjoyed the changes and the new costumes.

The one piece that really impressed me was River Deep Mountain High.  I have never liked the song so I figured the performance would forgettable on my list. Boy was I wrong!  It was amazing...probably my new favorite of the show.  Celine was smoking hot and the dancers were phenomenal.

The next day, we stopped by the Colosseum to say another thank you to those who made the proposal possible and we ran into Dion (one of the dancers).  He was walking up behind us and remembered us from the night before. He said congrats and told us that Celine and the dancers had been warming up backstage when he saw us on screen.  He said he yelled for everyone and they all ran over to watch.  It really made me feel special.

The rest of the day and the next were spent just hanging out, casino hopping and shopping.  It was a nice change from my regular hectic Vegas trips.
i liked the part where you said he immediately handed over his credit card. he's a good catch, hang on to this one  :msn-wink: oh and congrats on your proposal  :giggle:

Thank you guys for your kind words.  It surely was a magical night.  I'll never forget just arriving to Colosseum with a ring in my pocket and just counting down the minutes.  We went to Caesar's Palace before the show and there was a line at stanby.  I told Stacy that we were going to wait anyway so we got in line.  What she didn't know was that I had already Pre-arranged my tickets and my contact had them ready for me as soon as I walked up.  We stood in line anyway to give Stacy the illusion that we didn't have tickets and we got lucky to get front row.

You have no idea how much planning went into this, but it was all worth it!  I have never heard so many congratulations on one day.  Imagine 4,000 + people watching your proposal on the big screen and a good portion of them contratulating you on the way out of your seat, on the way out to the doors, on the way to pick up the pictues, on the way to the hotel and on the strip and casinos the next day or two.  AMAZING!!!!

BTW...
Love You babes!!  Thanks for being YOU!
Momma, you're going to be an awesome mother-in-law.  Thanks for the support and for being there with us. :)

It’s so crazy to read this almost 12 years later. Just a quick update... this is our family now.

We’re still going strong!
