Vegas, baby!

Went to Vegas this weekend with some of my favorite girls in the whole world. Simmons, Clarke, and I all flew in on Friday night to stay the weekend with Stephanie at her house in Henderson. Because she's a VIP, she was able to hook us up with some FAB perks, such as tickets to a Boyz II Men concert (yes, I'm serious) and then comps into the Ghostbar and Rain at The Palms.

We spent Saturday mostly just taking it easy. We drove down the Strip with the top down on the convertible, went and visited Sigfried and Roy's fabulous white tigers (and lions and alpacas - very odd), and then hit an outlet mall where we all made FAB purchases! Then we cruised back and Steph made us a fiesta in honor of Cinco de Mayo -- deLISH! After dinner, we got all gussied up and went to the Boyz II Men concert, which was seriously one of the most hilarious things ever!!! Clearly, we needed some adult beverages in order to enjoy the concert, but once the girls started rushing the stage, we quickly got the giggles! At one point, I even ran down to the stage and caught a rose that one of the "Boyz" threw to me. After the concert, we headed over to The Palms where we ran into a pack of professional British rugby players. We did what any normal group of red-blooded American girls would do and made them hang out with us the rest of the night! : ) The Ghostbar was awesome and we also boogied down at Rain a little bit, but by the end of the night, our feet were killing us and all we wanted to do was go home and eat more enchiladas...so we did. : )

On Sunday, Steph woke me and Clarke up by siccing the dogs on us. We drove down to Boulder City (near the dam) and had some greasy breakfast, then headed back for a day by the pool. I have a sunburn, but it was so nice to just lounge around with my girls! We had dinner in celebration of Sarah's birthday (next weekend) and then all left for the airport. : ( It was so sad to say goodbye, but on the other hand it was nice knowing that we're all going to make it a priority to still get together.

It's Cinco de Mayo, therefore MARGARITA TIME!

All dolled up and ready for a night on the town.

There they are ladies, BOYZ II MEN are at it again. Jealous?!

A candid snapped of me with one of the beautiful British boys!

The end of the night and the glasses and jammies are out. So are all the left-overs that we quickly demolished! : )
