Fabulous Lost Wages

Two weeks ago I went to Las Vegas for a friend's bachelorette party. It was a quick (and early!) trip. Our flight left Denver at 7:20 AM, and then we left Vegas at 7 AM two days later to head home. We ended up barely napping Saturday night/Sunday morning before our flight home. Needless to say, I was exhausted! Fun was had by all, but I sure was glad to get home and sleep in my own bed and get back to a regular sleep schedule!

I don't want to share pictures of the other girls here on the interwebs, but here are some snapshots of the quick trip. I didn't snap pictures of everything we did - we saw Thunder from Down Under (so great!), but to take a picture with the guys was $20, so I passed. I'm on a budget, ya know.

we got suckered into this. but I came home with a really pretty pearl ring, so I'm not TOO upset ;)
we did some of this both days at the pool and it was wonderful
it's grainy, but this is what I wore our first night out: black top, neon orange lace skirt & red wedges
what I wore to explore Fremont Street & eat at In-N-Out Burger for the first time
and what I wore the second night - same shoes as the night before. we walked to the other end of the strip this night, hence the blisters on my heels I mentioned before...

making faces & taking selfies while I waited for the other girls to finish getting ready
the mothership - across the street was as close as I got :(

Vegas was fun, especially with the girls, but laying low at home is more my speed, I'm thinking. My Mr. heads to Vegas this coming weekend for the corresponding Bachelor Party, so we'll see what he thinks of Sin City.

Happy Sunday! I've got to go on my long run this afternoon (my Dad and I plan to do another half marathon in September) - wish me luck!

Navy & Neon

I know, I know. I tell my real life friends about my blog, and then POOF! disappear for a few days. But I've been busy (I know everyone says that and it's my least favorite excuse to hear come out of peoples' mouths because it means "I was too busy for YOU") but, I was busy! I mean, I went to Vegas. BUSYBUSYBUSY. So, cut me some slack, will ya?

I went to Lost Wages for a dear friend's bachelorette party for a quick 48 hours - pictures to come! We  had fun, but Vegas isn't really my speed - it's a bit too fast. Consider Sin City the fast lane - I'm waaaay over in the right lane, with the little old ladies merging. Regardless of the difference in speeds, we merged lanes and had a fun girls' trip. I think our bride-to-be is ready for her bride-dom & wife-dom (just made those up - ya like?)

And here's that maxi skirt again. And twirling. Again ;)

I'll be here the rest of the week, simply because my life is slowing down for the next 2.5 days, but then picks up again right after! Whoever said summer is a slower time was just doesn't stop!
