Vegas, Finally!!!

VEGAS was a success…

I get to cross number 43 off my 101 in 1001 days list! This past weekend Scott and I went to Vegas and met up with my two bff’s and a fiancĂ©. We had such an amazing time!

We started off the trip by dropping khloe off at a friend’s house, she was so excited to stay with the kids and have a yard she didn’t care that mommy and daddy were leaving, she was too busy in her new backyard.

2 hours after we were on the road I pulled over at a gas station to let Scott take the wheel…after a quick run into the bathroom I get back into the car, to find that Scott had just found a $100 bill on the ground outside!!! Hello gambling money for VEGAS!

We checked into our hotel room and after a quick change of clothes on my part, umm hello, a girl has to look cute in Vegas at all times, we hit the strip to walk around and enjoy the afternoon.

We headed back to the hotel, got ready to hit up our favorite dinner buffet at MGM Grand and then gamble at our favorite casino, New York New York. Dinner was yummy and the gambling was great! Scott put in $20 bucks and left with $136! So we were up $216 dollars on Friday night! I played a sex and the city slot machine and got a nice little winning, I think like $40 from a $20.

Our friends arrived at about 11 pm. We met them back at the hotel and had a drink while Kate and I opened our birthday presents. Kate got me a bunch of Benefit make-up, my fav! It is all the stuff needed to look like a bronzed beauty! Kar got me an amazing candle and perfume from anthropologie and a bottle of wine that is in fact called “Mad Housewife”! How freakin’ funny is that?!!?

We hit up a few bars and then ended the night at Casino Royale where Scott got a lesson in craps and a got a lesson in Roulette. It was such a fun night and perfect first night in Vegas.

Saturday we were up and ready to go to the pool at 9 am, oh the glorious pool! We got a prime location to people watch and lay under the sun that finally came out at full force around 10am. Scott and I hit up the hotel buffet and let me tell you, I ate everything but the kitchen sink. Here goes the list: fried chicken, biscuit and eggs, french toast and waffles, prime rib and watermelon and then a plate full of yummy desserts….oh yes, who could forget a mimosa to wash it all down! This little piggy rolled herself back to the pool to read all the trashy magazines a girl could wish for, plus a little fashion as well!

At around 3 the girls headed across the street to Caesar’s Palace to have happy hour at The Cheesecake Factory while the boys went to Planet Hollywood to watch the final 4 games. Happy hour was tons of fun; the Factory has the best sangria I have had in a long time…

After going back to the room to get dolled up for a night on the town VIP style, {while trying to get ourselves unlost from the casino at Caesar’s Palace we were stopped by Anthony and asked if we wanted to go to PURE that night…of course we did! And of course we got tons of free VIP passes and free drink passes, score!} we headed to PF Changs for dinner to celebrate the April birthdays, me, Kate and John! I enjoyed an ah-maz-ing Asian Pear Mojito, talk about heaven, it was delightful, to say the least! After dinner we headed to PURE and to make a long story short, Kar was extremely tired and decided it would be in her best interest to head back to the hotel and hit the hay…thus Kate and I partied VIP style at PURE while the boys gambled the night away! PURE, by far, was the best club I have experienced in VEGAS. We got in for free, didn’t have to wait more then 20 minutes in line and once we got in we spent a whole whooping $30 all night on drinks! How did we only spend $30, we were VIP baby! We spent most of the night in the VIP section, the same VIP section as Ryan Cabrera and Leona Lewis, who was there to celebrate her birthday!

This is the side of Ryan Cabrera

in case you were wondering, smoking kills!

partying in VIP, the girl in the yellow was from canada!

The drive home on Sunday was torture to say the least! Scott and I were so tired I felt like the 5 hour drive took 10! When we got home we snuggled with khloe on the couch all night…

Conclusion, Vegas was the bomb!

this is deep...like arm floaties deep

this week has been rather hellacious. HMM, did you know hellacious has a variety of meanings; 1 : exceptionally powerful or violent 2 : remarkably good 3 : extremely difficult 4 : extraordinarily large, thanks Merriam-Webster online! I am obviously referring to the 3rd definition, extremely difficult.

Before I go into detail I have the post about Vegas all set and ready to go, I just need to take the time to download the pictures from Vegas so you don't just read a 85 page dissertation on our Vegas adventure. Instead you will have 85 pages of reading, and another 85 pages of pictures, won't that be fun!?!

Monday and Tuesday were just exhausting, because, well, aren't they always after a weekend jam packed with fun?! Wednesday is when the hellacious-ness really got ampted up.

I go to an extremely fun meeting for work every few weeks, and when ever I get back to the office I feel like this...

When I got home from work I had a voicemail from our landlord and she was letting us know our stupid-goodfornothing-ghettoass-nothingbettertodothenfindstupidissues hoa sent her a letter and the hoa guidelines that states we cannot put a stake in the ground for khloe to be able to run around the front yard...oh wait, that is the ONLY yard we have. Never mind that our neighborhood is so ghetto I am sometimes afraid to walk in the street or alley because people drive like a bat out of hell at 40+mph...if my baby khloe were to find herself out there she would be a pancake! And you better believe the person that did it would be dead and I would be behind bars! Thus, the little metal stake and the 15 foot little leash was not just something we thought would be fun, it is a NECESSITY! This new rule also means khlo-belle can no longer play with the neighbor girls. Khloe is at the stage where she runs around and will purposely play the "cat and mouse" chasing game, so she is NOT ALLOWED outside with some type of leash.

After this news i felt like this...

Yesterday I had a raging headache all afternoon, and thus I needed this....big time...

My last and final complaint is one that is hard for me to express. It is hard for me to express in words with out sounding like a total bratbroadbitch, which ever word you prefer to use.

The beauty of my blog is well, read the word before blog, it is all mine! This is where i get to track all of the memories Scott and I make, but is also an outlet for me. Sometimes I don't get to use it that way because I am afraid of who reads it. I have recently come to realize that I cannot make everyone love me, therefore I cannot be afraid to express my feelings and frustrations in the blog I created to document my life and the life of Scott and I. My feelings are always written across my face, I cannot hide if I am annoyed with you, frustrated or stressed. You can see it on my face like a bright red road cone. Therefore, if I don't express who I am on this blog how is it really a reflection of me?? good question right? I thought so too...so here it goes...don't judge me...

Scott is in the Navy and currently on "shore duty," that means he will not be deployed, aka he will sleep at home at night...which is completely wonderful and amazing. I am so grateful that we get to start our marriage and not have Scott take a fantastic voyage on a massive military metal floating piece of machinery. However, between working the 12 hour days, going to school and being on call almost every other weekend depending on him is like depending on social security when i am 65...fat chance! Don't get me wrong, Scott, as my husband is ridiculously dependable...even better then the old people underwear, Depends....hahaha... But dependable in the sense that when he has a Friday "off" we can have lunch, or that he can work on the damn invites so they can go in the mail tomorrow, notsomuch. It is a frustration that I know I am going to have to work through.

My fear is that right now he isn't supposed to be as busy as when he is back on sea duty. So if this is an easy workload, what the hell is going to happen when we go back to sea duty?!!! I want to have kids, and since I am pretty sure Scott will never go back to shore duty because he looooves being on a ship there will never be a "good" time. I know the reality of it is he will only get busier and busier as his career continues. I know that with 100000000% certainty because I grew up with my Dad being in the Navy, so it is kind of a no brainer to have that realization. In fact, I'd be pretty naive and blind to the situation if I did accept the realization.

One of my few downfalls (ha!) is that I might realize something and have to accept it but it doesn't mean I will be happy about it.

I know that I knew all of this when we started dating and got married. I am currently working at trying to figure out how to happily accept it and not always take it out on Scott and be upset.

maybe I need to remember this...
