Hasta La Vista B's and Viva Las Vegas!

I had every intention of doing a fun recap of past Vegas trips for y'all before I left for my bestie Kristina's 5 Day Bachelorette Party Weekend extraordinaire in Sin City.  Butttt ... thanks to a Mystic tanning sesh, a CVS run, Target trip, bridesmaid dress pick-up, lingerie store stop and last minute packing till 2 a.m., I didn't get around to a proper pre-Vegas post for you ladies.  Please forgive.

Instead, I present you with this consolation prize.  Here is a pic of the 2 of us in middle school at the San Diego Zoo.  As if the short jean overalls weren't bad enough, I topped that look off with a snazzy fisherman hat over my mushroom cut.  You know you grew up in the 90s if ...
you ever rocked a smiliar look.
Included in my busy night last night was an almost panic attack when my Driver's License decided to play a little game of hide and seek with me. I found it eventually, but this is beginning to get ridiculous.  I need to get my life in order. 

In the meantime, I promise to keep you updated on all of our shenans via my Twitter account.  If you don't follow, you better get on it.  I can guarantee you there will be some entertaining tweets to be read & pics to be seen. 

As soon as our flight takes off tonight and the flight attendant makes her first round, I will have a frosty bevy in hand.  Wanna know how I know this trip is going to be good?  Yesterday we got our hotel suite comped.  Uh, yes please.  I can't believe I'll be walking stumbling down the gorgeous strip soon.  Eeeeeep!

A little overview of a few items on our agenda:
Lingerie Shower w/ a game of Pin the Macho on the Man (standard)
Thunder From Down Under
(May or may not be my 3rd time to see this show and uh, these Aussies NEVER get old!  If you go to Vegas with all your lady friends, this is a must.  You will be transformed when you walk into the room.  Just trust me.)
Pool Time
(You'll find me in the cabana w/ my big floppy hat and cover up on. The sun and I don't get along.)
(Hello the Forum Shops at Caesars)
Club it up
Eat a lot maybe throw a fancy din din in the mix
Fly back hungover hating my life

If my calculations are correct, this will be my 7th trip to Vegas.  It is seriously my favorite place ever. I have loved it from the moment I stepped off my first flight and walked into the slot machine filled airport.  The energy in Vegas is like none other and the people watching is phenom.  Remind me to tell y'all the story of the drunk motorized scooter guy who toppled off the sidewalk and onto Las Vegas Blvd. 
I cannot believe how many of you have told me you have never been to Vegas (unconstitutional!) or are about to go for the first time and need recommendations.  When I return, I will write a "Bargain Blonde's Guide to Vegas" post with my favorite spots and to-dos. 

The love of Vegas must be in my blood. My Grandparents were hardcore Vegas travelers so I know of a few hidden gems like the Peppermill ... Holly Madison's fave as well.  Last time we were there they were filming her show and asked if we wanted to be extras in the scene. Um, as much as I love to just stand around in Vegas, no thanks.  I've got some roulette to play.

I only packed 9 pairs of shoes this time and 10 or so dresses.  I consider that an accomplishment.  Don't you?  All righty, I'll catch you bargainistas on the flip side.  VIVA LAS VEGAS!  #ihopeidon'tdie

    Have fun on your trip!!

  12. Yay! You are going to have SOMUCHFUN!

    I am only a five hour drive from Vegas and I really should go more often. Problem is, I like to gamble way too much. Oh and last time I was there Jager kicked my ass. I woke up in bed with ONLY leggings on then fell out of bed and hit my head on the dresser before I crawled my ass to the bathroom to puke. Totally worth it though ;)

    Can't wait to see all the pics!

  13. You are friggin hilarious!!! Your schedule is intense and awesome and... you got the hotel suite comped?? I want your life.

    Couldn't agree with you more about the energy in Vegas. You can't find that anywhere else. The lights, the fountains, the sketchy guys handing out cards on the corner, and ohh the people watching. Only in Las Vegas. Can't wait for the Twitter updates :) Have so much fun, girlfriend!!!

  14. Sounds like a blast! I'd love to have you link up with me for "Flirting With Temptation Thursday," come check it out!

    I'm also having a great giveaway where you can win a $50 gift card to Victoria's Secret that ends Friday! Have a fabulous night doll!

    Kori xoxo

  15. I can't wait to hear the stories when you get back!!

  16. I have never been to Vegas! It is blasphemy I am aware. People are shocked when I tell them. I cannot believe you didn't want to be on reality television! I would not have turned that down! :)

  17. Wow...5 days?! I don't know if I could take Vegas for that long. My longest trip to date has been 4 nights and that was a bit much. I usually go for 3 nights :) I actually just went last weekend and it was my 7th trip as well...I agree that the atmosphere and energy there is like none other and it is DEFINITELY one of my top three favorite places. I'm already trying to plan my next trip!
