That's it! I am buying a private jet soon, any suggestions? Vegas recap and Mingle Monday!

So is 12 hours of driving worth Vegas? Yes!! But I really wish we didn't have to waste 12 hours in one weekend just to drive to and from there. Damn you traffic! I really want to buy a private jet. I wonder how much one of those is running nowadays. Do you think I will have enough money if I start saving for it? I need to be rich.

With all that being said... I had a fantastic time in Vegas and I am looking forward to my trip next weekend. Yep, you read that right I am going to Vegas next weekend as well...This time for a blackjack tournament (I got a free entry and a free hotel room so hell ya!)


So I left work at around 3:30 and hit the road. We didn't end up getting to Kevin's brother's house until 10 pm.  I wish that Keith and Autumn lived closer (like in southern CA) because they are a lot of fun to hang out with. They have two adorable kids as well who have grown so much since the last time we saw them. Children grow so quickly.

Kevin and his niece. He says he doesn't want kids but he is so good with them :)
On Friday we hung out with all of them at their place and also stayed there that night. We played rock band and Autumn and I chatted while the boys geeked out over music and star wars. It was a lot of fun and relaxing.


Ended up sleeping in pretty late. Saturday afternoon was full of lazy lounging around and playing with the kids. I played with their 5 (almost 6) year old son. We played Little Big Planet. I suck at video games. I really do. So much so that he kept telling me I was killing him and that I was horrible at the games. He kicked my butt big time on all the games I played with him. I think we all finally got ready and dressed at around 4 or 5. We then dropped the kids off at their babysitters for the night.

It was Autumn and Keith's anniversary. AWWW so we went and celebrated that with them down on the strip. We got them a room at the Riveria and we stayed at Planet Hollywood. We wouold have stayed at the same hotel or at hotels on the same side of the strip but I messed up with the reservations and by the time I booked ours Planet Hollywood was the only hotel with decently priced vacancies. Our room was gorgeous because we got upgraded to a VIP room since we checked in late and were giving a smoking room (which luckily didnt smell like smoke). The room was GORGEOUS! It had a huge tub and a comfortable huge bed. It was the Indiana Jones themed room and it had a bunch of actual props/costumes from the movies. Pretty kick ass for $90 if I do say so myself.

This is pretty much what our room looked like except without the chairs.
So we finally hit the strip around 9ish I think (I am horrible about remembering to look at the time). We all went to Pink's to eat. Yummy!! I love their hot dogs. We then walked down to Paris so that Kev and I could get our Eifel tower drink. I love those but I think Im over them now. I get one everytime I go and it does a great job of getting me buzzed but I think I am over how sweet it is. We then just walk the strip for a while. We went to Fat Tuesdays at MGM so that we could get our $1 jello shots (we only got 1, I wished we got more)... The night consisted of walking the strip and people watching. It was a lot of fun. We then went up to the room around 1:30 or 2. Kev passed out at 2:50 and Keith and Autumn stayed around till 3:30. I was wired but finally passed out around 5 am (damn 5 hour energy).
Real men drink fruity eifel tower drinks ;)

Yummy! No I wasn't really drinking both the drinks. Im not that hardcore
All in all Saturday was the VEGAS night. Everything that Vegas should be about and I had a lot of fun. Im still waiting on a couple of pictures from the night. Shall share those soon enough


I ended up waking up pretty early for some reason and just laid in bed watching American Wedding. I finally woke Kevin up around 10 am (checkout was at 11). I took a bath in the AWESOME tub because I just had to. You can't let a tub like that go to waste. We then checked out of our hotel and went down to the Riveria to check Keith and Autumn out.

I am really pissed at the Sahara because they wiped my comp dollars clean and I should have had $150 left and I had $.02. We went over there to eat at the NASCAR Cafe and we al shared a sampler. It was SOOO much food that even all 4 of us couldnt finish it. I also got a souvenir cup with strawberry margarita in it. YUMMY!  We hit the road at 2 pm and didnt get home until 8:30 pm.

Spinach dip sourdough bread bowl, poppers, wings, chicken fingers, sausages, onion rings, mozarella sticks all served on top of a bed of curly fries.

It was a very fun trip but Im still wiped out from it. I am excited for next weekend because there shall be gaming and more drinking. :) I hope your weekends all were great.
