How was Vegas?

It just occurred to me that I haven't told you about Vegas!

Well, I will do so posthaste.

From our house to Sin City is about a 5 hour drive. We have our routine down and it goes pretty quick actually. We left on Friday night... but not until after 8:00. That was okay though because we brought two boxes of Red Bull! Yee-haw! Other than being pulled over for speeding down a two-lane highway in the middle of nowhere (and AMAZINGLY getting let off with a warning) it was an uneventful drive.

Realizing that we are now old and unable to keep up with the debaucherous atmosphere of the strip, we decided to book a room at a resort in Henderson, the next city over. It was really lovely. Hubs and I were perfectly happy to spend all day Saturday right there - breakfast at the Pancake House, lying by the pool drinking margaritas, and gambling in their huge casino. And the weather was perfect, just hot enough to make me feel like I finally got a little taste of summer before it's completely over.

Saturday night we saw Peepshow, Ho.lly Mad.ison's (from the Girls Next Door) show. It was pretty entertaining, and seeing Ho.lly up close and very personal was, surprisingly, a little self esteem booster! The girl actually has some meat on her bones - for a Pla.yboy model anyway. Of course all the other dancers were skinny as rails, but still. It's nice to see someone in entertainment (especially mostly-naked entertainment) that looks human. Well, minus the big fake rack, of course.

And that was it! We were exhausted after a day of drinking in the sun and it was a late show, so we went back to the hotel and went to bed. The next morning we checked out early and beat the traffic coming home.

Next up: The four-day weekend! Hubs and I are taking off on Thursday to visit some friends and wineries up north on the central coast. We'll only be there two nights, though, so we can have some down time at home on Saturday and Sunday. (And also because we're going broke with all this spending we're doing!)

Las Vegas sounds like it was lots of fun! DH is always saying if and when we go we HAVE to stay on the strip. I say no thanks.
Lucky you getting to take another vacation. I Already need another one.

I'm glad you had fun! The Strip is cool, but a bit over-rated. And I HATED that everyone in Vegas smokes!

I hope you enjoy the wineries, post pics of it! :)

Fun!! We are def going broke on vacas, but it keeps me occupied. First it was Charleston in July, Savannah in August, all these trips we spend $1500 easy. Now we decided to "try" to save for our Cruise in Nov. Before we know it we will be back and dreaming for another vaca. Atleast we have those off days in Nov, Dec, and Jan, maybe we'll make to 2011 saving for our next big adventure!
