Las Vegas: Moms Gone Wild

Las Vegas is one of my "happy places."  I don't go very often, but I really do love it.  Glitz, glamour, sugar, coffee, liquor, lights, sounds, crazy people watching... it's all there.  And it was so much fun the last time we went -- over Thanksgiving weekend -- that it's taken me a month to even write about it!

I am only including these two photos of me and KP, even though there are many, many more from our capers around the hotel and casino, mall and environs.  We had a scavenger hunt, for goodness' sake, and our list of things to do was extensive; a sampling:

* introduce yourself to a stranger
* take a picture with a statue (this was accomplished several times - extra credit)
* compliment a stranger on his/her hair
* make a friend
* take a picture with Elvis (statues, impersonators and velvet portraits all OK)

We also had the brilliant idea to make 3 "days" out of 2, by separating our days into shifts (9 am - 6 pm for shopping, gambling and spa, 9 pm - 3 am for dinner, fun and gambling, then sleep, then more fun in the morning). Hey, if you're a mom and you only have a few days in Vegas, you're gonna make the most of what you've got, right?

(Disclaimer: I talk big, but let me tell you that KP and I had the Brambleberry Fizz drinks -- in our hands in the pix to the left -- and we didn't drink any more after that.... we were both brambled and fizzed.... Some girls can't handle Vegas, I suppose!)
