Day One

13 May

Since I have far too much to write about in regards to Vegas, I’ve decided to break it up in to Days One through Four. Hopefully each individual day won’t be too “mind-numbling“ly boring for you (haha)…

The trip began with me having choosing to wake up at about 3:30 in the morning to get ready for the airport. I am totally not one of those people who can just wake up a few hours before their flight leaves, NOT get there exactly two hours before the flight and be totally confident that everything will turn out okay.

Nope. Not me.

In order for me not to develop another Bad Kitty Accessory Ulcer, I had to wake up early enough so that I could shower, dress, pack my makeup and hair stuff after using them and go over my luggage with a fine-toothed comb to make sure everything was there. Add in having to drop the car off at a parking lot and getting shuttled (albeit only a five-minute shuttle ride) to the airport and we’re talking having to wake up about five hours before my flight.

I know. I’m a whack job.

Anywho, the flight was pretty uneventful and soon we had landed in Sin City. Upon arriving at our hotel, the uber-fabulous MGM Signature, we immediately hit the pool and waited for our rooms to be available.

This pool was actually next door. We liked it okay, but we preferred the gated private pool at our tower. Needless to say, it was a pretty rough weekend being us.

Shockingly pale

Please disregard how ridiculously pale I am in the photo. And that’s me WITH a month of tanning in anticipation of the vacation. Au natural, I’m actually see-through. It’s pretty creepy…

Another sidenote: This was my first official drink of the trip. Let’s just say that many more followed. Many. More. But that’s a story for another day…

Upon pulling out my laptop – which was an Epic Fail by the way. It was WAY too slow to really get much accomplished, including watching the three movies that I had downloaded from iTunes. Nice way to waste $15 bucks – I realized that maybe we were having a bit of difficulty letting go of technology and enjoying the sun. Or maybe we were just enjoying both.

Too much technology? Probably.

When our room was ready, we were surprised with delicious food and some Vuelve Cliquot champagne from one of our friends who couldn’t make the trip!

Soooo yummy

Conn, seriously, yum! We missed you!

After banishing the Bachelorette to her room, we began to set up a spread of all our fun weekend paraphernalia we had been hoarding in anticipation of this eventful weekend…

Sorry, Mom...

A new-comer to the group was not a 12-inch (way too small for our group), not a 24-inch (hello, Guillermo), but a 48-inch inflatable penis. Sadly our new friend was never officially named but we did deem him Guillermo’s “big” brother! We’re classy like that.

The best part of Day One was definitely the Bachelorette’s reaction to all the fun toys!

Her shirt reads "and the City" in VERY small print

And she REALLY liked that lollipop…

    You look so chic on your lounge by the chair, I’m surprised the paparazzi wasn’t hounding you. I’ll be looking for your photo in this week’s Star Magazine.
