G E T A W A Y :: Las Vegas

Last week was my spring break, so I spent nine days in Las Vegas with my family.  (Rob was out in the field on his 3rd FEX so he couldn't come.  It was so weird without him!)  While it wasn't your typical Las Vegas trip, (I never stepped foot in a club and I gambled a full four bucks at the penny slots) it was exactly what I needed.  I spent the majority of the week lounging by the pool, working on my tan.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous all week; 85 and sunny.  My brother drove up from 29 Palms on Sunday and it was nice to have the family together--which hasn't happened for more than 24 hours since before he got back from Afghanistan.

Easter morning at the Excalibur pool
We stayed at the Excalibur the first night and the Paris for the rest of the week.  I can't believe how massive all of the hotels on the strip are and the details inside.  I swear it felt like I was eating crepes in a real cafe in Paris!

Tuesday night we saw Jersey Boys and Wednesday night we saw Cirque Du Soliel Mystere.  I loved both shows and we did not stop singing songs from Jersey Boys the entire week.  I ordered my dad the soundtrack from my phone so that it would arrive at home when we did.

While I had an amazing time, I was definitely ready in some aspects to come home.  I ate WAY too much at buffets over the week and I missed Rob like crazy.  It will be so nice to get back into a routine and not eat every single meal out at a restaurant.  Plus it seems like we brought the warm weather back to Virginia with us...in the 70s and 80s this week :)  This spring break trip definitely just started my countdown until summer!

    1. LOVED it! I'll be honest...I wasn't sold on the show before I went. I didn't understand why it had such a huge following but my mom really wanted to see it so we went and of course all hopped on the bandwagon. "Oh what a night" is on constant replay in my brain this week ha ha

    Oh and by the way...I CANNOT believe you are the muff family! I was stalking your FAQ's the other day and about died when I saw that. You have no idea how epic that episode is in our family. Not in a bad way, but in this would so be us hilarious way!

  10. Hi Samantha! I just saw your comment on my post at Mal's Miles. I don't even know where I came up with the idea to listen to books while running, but it has become such a good source of motivation for me to run. I find myself wanting to run just to find out what happens next! Definitely worth trying :)
