on a Las Vegas synopsis...

this is my happy Vegas face.

Needless to say, Vegas was pure brilliance. I have discovered a new love and adoration for martinis, John Travolta impersonators and two of my coworkers.

A few highlights include: winning $50 on a slot machine, realizing my coworkers girlfriend is a BFF waiting to happen, dressing up for the fancy company dinner at The Bellagio, A MARTINI BAR AHHHH, enjoying more free drinks than may have been necessary, bonding with my manager, getting into an actual club without too much hassle, dancing with a random kid who was wearing Kanye West glasses, staying out (almost) all night and, of course, jumping up and down on the hotel bed, singing quite loudly to Beyoncé.

It's moments like these that I would like to kiss my job on the mouth. You know, if it had one.

  3. You have just made me 10x million more excited because I am going to Vegas for a wedding in August (okay, still a while from now), because it just so happens that one of my former roommates is from Las Vegas and well, I guess we'll just have to make it a big weekend party and stay at the strip.

  19. oh, now that sounds SO fun!!! And you are a-dorable, of course. :)

    I've been an awful little commenter lately, but I just got caught up on your blog... how EXCITING that you get to go on such a nice long trip!! That's the way we always traveled when I was a kid-- in the car for hours, no matter where we were going, and I saw SO much of the country that way. It was wonderful. So I hope you have an absolutely FANTASTIC roadtrip with that hubby of yours!! I cannot wait to hear all about it!
