Vegas Bound

A friend spotted this pic on Yahoo from my modeling days
As of today at 5pm I will officially be on vacation!  I’m heading off to Las Vegas with my two sisters and my BFF is meeting us there.  The very same BFF I forgot to take a picture with who came to visit last month and will be moving to Alaska for three years.  I get a 2nd chance; and there is no way I can forget to take a single picture in three days.  She loves Vegas so when I told her we were going she was in.   Once again, I’m astounded by all of the things a so called low maintenance person such as myself needs.  I have a medium sized rolling suitcase (the small one wasn't big enough) and an entire bag dedicated exclusively to hair supplies and toiletries.  I HATE packing.   My mind is still racing about all of the things I could have forgotten.   Having to leave from work means that I had even less time to obsess and linger over my suitcase.  I’m going straight from work to my mom’s house where my older sister will be dropping of my nephew for safe keeping.   She’s driving us up to her house.  I’ll spend the night there and we’ll drive to Vegas on Friday morning and come back Monday.  My little sister is flying in Friday night.  It’s been three long years since I’ve been.  Mj had his turn to go with the boys and now it’s mine.  This trip is on point budget wise.  We're driving up there in a hybrid, staying at my time share right on the strip and I found us Groupons for a night out and a show.  That's how I roll.

There is another vacation ahead in the not so distant future.  A real vacation that even requires a passport!  Any guesses?  I've had weekend getaways and a trip to Delaware to visit the in laws but aside from that our last "real" vacation was our honeymoon in Oahu two years ago.  The timing of this trip was going to be very bad for work so for a while I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to go but it looks like it’s going to work out.  We haven’t nailed down the dates or itinerary just yet but I’m giddy with excitement and have been having a ball researching it obsessively for the last two weeks.

But first...some Vegas shenanigans with the girls are in order.  Can't wait.

  2. Enjoy Vegas.....I hate packing too I always think that I'm forgetting something, and I end up packing way too much because I like to have options since you never know what may happen.

    1. I know...it's awful. You can't pack for EVERY contingency but you want to then you run out of space. Hopefully I didn't forget anything.

    1. Yep!! I know you love it. I checked your blog and when you click comment yours pop up in a new window whereas mine don't-which might be the difference. Go to your comments settings, change it to embedded and see if that does the trick.
