Viva Las Vegas!

While Beth is in Phily, I will spending my day running around like a chicken with my head cut off getting ready to go to Nevada tomorrow to visit my Aunt and my cousins. They happen to live in Vegas.

Karyn (my sister) celebrated her 40th birthday this year back in December, and this is how we decided to celebrate: girlie time in Vegas. My mom and Karyn left on Wednesday and will be there an entire week. Abby and I leave tomorrow. She’s picking me up at 4:45 am…yikes! We will have fun visiting all of the amazing casinos…not to gamble, of course, but to look around. They have places that resemble New York City, Paris, and Venise. They have malls in these casinos that are astounding. It truly is an amazing place.  We will also be staying overnight in a little hotel in the mountains for some R&R. But mostly we will have fun because my Aunt is one of the funniest people ever. I never see my mom laugh so hard and long as when she’s with Aunt Fran. My Vegas family is just really fun. They are the kind of people who bring the party with them wherever they go.

The only sad part is leaving my husband and children. Jason is so gracious to not just let me go, but really joyfully release me. He is happy for me to have time away, even if it is at a cost to him (in more ways than one). I. love. this. man.

So Beth, enjoy Philly! I’ll try to blog while in Vegas.

Elvis, here I come!

  1. aww, thanks for the wishes. It’s been so relaxing. I went to bed at 10:15 and woke up at 7:15. Not too bad! I don’t need to be at the of fice until 9:30 so I’m just reading and relaxing. Have fun in Vegas! Aren’t our boys so kind to us?

  2. Have a BLAST! Can’t wait to hear about all your Vegas ventures! (sounds like a good blog title for when you return) 🙂

  3. So happy for you Laurie that you get time away like this. What memories you ladies will have. Praying that you all are refreshed!!!
