WHAT A WAY TO RING IN THE BIG THREE-OH! Boy oh boy, where do I even begin?! Let’s start from the beginning, shall we? Last Thursday, I told Tony that we were going to grab dinner in town – super casual. We hopped in the Jeep and little did know that not only were our bags packed, but our very good friend Candace from Candace Nicole Photography was in the back seat!! Now that he was good and confused, we headed to Dulles Airport for a 14 hour flight to spend 10 days in DUBAI!!! Dubai is that ONE place that Tony has had at the TOP of his bucket list, and I saved and saved and saved over the course of a year to make sure that he was going to see it in person!
Once we landed, we grabbed some Thai food below our beautiful Airbnb home, and then hit the hay. In the morning, we headed to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center – most definitely the mot beautiful building that I have ever seen!!! Sorry in advance for all of the pictures of it – I honestly couldn’t help myself.
Then, we had to walk around down by the City Walk and see the ever-so-famous, Burj Khalifa! It is the tallest building in the whole world, standing at 2,722 feet!! Thats 163 floors!! It TOWERS over the city! We walked around the mall, saw the aquarium, ate a ton of food, went to The Louvre, saw the newest Aladdin – we did ALL THE THINGS.
The other huge surprise for Tony’s birthday – a desert dune bashing followed by camels, falcons, middle eastern bbq, and a show! It was so much fun yall. I would do it again in a heart beat!
Peep all the pics we took – fair warning, there’s a lot!
