Vegas: The Aftermath

Vegas was an AMAZING trip. So. Much. Fun! But, I'm not going to lie, the adventure wore me out.

I'm sitting on the couch right now, feeling exhausted, congested and dealing only with half a voice. I keep squeaking when I talk. And, this morning, I could only sing half the Britney Spears song on my drive in because my poor throat couldn't hit the high notes.

But, my current state is a small sacrifice for the fun I had in Sin City. I came back with a great tan, great memories with my best friends, and some great pictures. (And - I didn't lose a single dollar!) I can't wait to go back! But, with all we did, I know there is so much I didn't get to see and experience. And, I'm convinced that depending on who you travel with, the trip will unfold in a completely different manner.

For instance, when you go to Vegas with five other ladies, the city is basically handed to you on a silver platter. We were on all sorts of lists for some of the hottest clubs. We hardly paid for any drinks. And, the dinner where the manager brought us all complimentary champagne and chocolate fondue? Swoon!!!!!! And while the nights were filled with clubs and glamour, the days were filled with poolside mai tais and suntan lotion. Again: swoon!!

I would love to go with a cute boy on a little one-on-one excursion. ;) It was decided on the plane ride black that Vegas would not be a romantic vacation. Vegas would be a SEXY vacation. Sign me up!

Another Vegas trip I'm looking forward to? December 2010. When my little sister (finally!) turns 21, we're going as a family! Oh. My. Gosh. I already know we'll laugh until our abs hurt on this vacation.

Is it bad that I've already looked at Vegas flights for Fall this year?? I'm ready to go!

Vegas, Baby!

I'm off to Vegas tomorrow morning and meeting up with five of my best friends. Of the six of us, only one of us has ever been to this town of bright lights and low morals. Oh. My. Gosh. This is going to be so much fun!!

Wish me luck!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle... ARE YOU KIDDING ME!

Yesterday afternoon, my friend and I drove up I65 all the way from Nashville to Louisville with the top down. (Yes, we did blast country music! And, yes, I did feel like I was in a Carrie Underwood music video!) But, by the time we got to Indianapolis, the 80 degree weather and bright sunshine were distant memories. Perfect weather was replaced by forty degree temperatures, strong winds, storms and the promise of snow in the morning. Oh, Indianapolis, you always seem to welcome me home with the most cheerful of weather....

At home that night, I got out the holiday decorations. And, if I had gone by the weather, I should have put up the Christmas decorations instead of the Easter decorations. Seriously - it feels like December outside! (Don't worry Momma - the faux-chocolate rabbit is perched on the mantel anxiously awaiting your arrival!)

And, as I walked out to my car this morning, I experienced the strange juxtaposition of sleet hitting my face while birds chirped in the trees. And, I swear, I heard one bird say to the other, "What the tweet is going on here!?!"

Vegas in 10 days!!!!!!!
