Vegas is the Balm!

I love Vegas. Love it! Yes it's dirty and has it's sketchy parts, but if you do Vegas right? It's a complete blast.

On Friday I drove down to spend the weekend with Sara, Rhonda and Kate. We do this every Spring to celebrate Sara and Rhonda's Birthdays - it's a short trip but it's always so much fun. I was hesitant about the weather since this is what I was driving into...
In a word - ominous.

After a few hours of rain and clouds the sun came out! Let me tell you, that drive is so pretty. When I lived in Vegas (I have now decided to dedicate an entire post to my 18 months in sin city) I made that drive hundreds of times, never get sick of it. Especially the narrows...so cool.
I finally arrived and was able to go to dinner with Sara and my sister! Andrea is my favorite, I love that I was able to see her for a few hours. We shared a ginormous sundae and laughed super hard...good times.

Sara and I got back to the house just after Kate and Rhonda arrived! We hugged and chatted before popping in the hilarious '17 Again' (Have we talked about the unattainable gorgeous that is Zac Efron? I know he's a fetus, but I totally get why girls faint at the sight of him - the kid is beautiful).

The next day we ate at 'Hash House A Go Go'. D. Lish. Next time you're in Summerlin you MUST go! Rhonda and I ordered the Fried Chicken and Waffles (why haven't I ever put those two things together before?). The portions are huge...as evidenced by our expressions at the ginormity of our plates.

Kate ordered the bus-sized pancake. Holy Johnnies. Oh yeah, those are bits of Snickers in there...
After stuffing ourselves to the rafters, it was time to shop! H&M, Banana, Martin & Osa...the day was warm and balmy and beautiful and how I loved spending time with my dearest friends. Remarkably, we were feeling snacky and got some frozen treats at Yogurtland.
We sat and people watched for about an hour. People watching in Vegas? Pretty sure that can't be topped.

We ended the night eating pasta and creme' brulee at Magianno's, then curling up on the couch to watch 'Overboard'.
We lunched the next day before going our separate ways. I LOVE these girls. I had such a great time and I'm already trying to find a way to meet up in Vegas in a few weekends (too soon?). Good thing the annual girls trip is only two months away!

So glad you had fun and more importantly, that you're back safe and sound! {So we can now do lunch, of course.}

Rhonda Can't Help You said...

Yippee! Looking forward to next year!
