What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas...it goes on the blog!


My partners in crime.




The resort where we stayed was breathtaking.


No vacation is complete without palm trees.

Dinner with Uncle Kerry.



We all had an amazing time in Las Vegas. I have been looking forward to this trip for so long, and can't believe it is over. We definitely did our part in helping boost the economy. We went on a three day shopping spree and spent money like it was going out of style, and we enjoyed every last second of it! Our husbands were happy we didn't drag them along with us on the all girls shopping trip. My husband would have wanted to shoot himself, especially when he found out some of the malls didn't close until midnight. He was baffled at how we could shop from 10:30 a.m. to midnight (straight, with no breaks, except for dinner). We shopped 'til we literally dropped. We dined ourselves silly and saw a fabulous Cirque Du Soleil show, KA. This show was incredible and definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I don't know how those performers did what they did. They were moving, twisting, flipping and bending like Gumbis.
The trip went rather smoothly, although we did lose a few items. Ashley left one of her entire shopping bags somewhere along the way, and even though we re-traced our steps we couldn't find the missing bag. My mom lost a pair of sunglasses, which also were never found, and I dropped my cell phone! Luckily Someone turned it in and they just called my husband today to let us know they were mailing it to us.
Ashley had to leave Saturday night, but my mom and I got to enjoy some R and R poolside on Sunday before heading home. I drove with my mom, and it didn't even seem that long because I got my mom's undivided attention for about 12 hours and I was loving the mommy- daughter time. Thank you mom for treating us to this much needed vacation. We had so much fun, we are making this a yearly tradition.

Well Lindsey my sweet. I'd like to say I am glad you had such a great time. But I am too jealous at the moment to have any good will. So why can't I do something like that? No really I am happy for you and love the pictures and the hotel looks beautiful and what a nice mother to do that for you two. Good for you both! You got the mall, I got stuck with Dan. He he.

What an awesome trip!!! I am so jealous! It sounded relaxing, but fun. If I had any say in it, I would make it an annual trip. How fun to get to spend time with your mom and Ashley.

I almost fell asleep just hearing about all that shopping. Thanks for leaving me out. But I wouldn't have minded the hotel and restaraunts. But i sure missed you sweetie! PS. I dont like the look of that make-up wearing goon. He didn't ask for your phone number did he?
