Terrorizing Nevada

Tonight I leave for Las Vegas to celebrate my 40th birthday tomorrow.  Whew, that's a hard number to type.

The last two weeks have been tremendously stressful as my husband and I decided to pursue an opportunity that benefits our daughter but has really put us in an emotional tailspin. So I am really looking forward to these three days away.

Because I have no metal bandwidth left, I told Chad earlier in the week there would be no itinerary for this weekend. We're going to get off that plane, get to the hotel and wing it. Just fly by the seat of our pants. Be impulsive.

Easy for me. Hard for him. Chad is a planner. He likes to know what he's doing and when he's doing it. He wants to so badly plan something for Saturday night. It's Las Vegas. We will find something to do. Nobody gets off a plane in Las Vegas, looks around and says, "Well this place sucks" and goes home.

I know one thing for sure. There will be food, there will be alcohol, and there will be me at some point, somewhere on the strip, randomly bursting out into song and serenading a total stranger because that's just what I do.

I am very excited.

Enjoy!

As a fellow planner, I understand Chad's pain. But once he gets through that, the good times will roll.

Have a great time!

Enjoy a Saturday night planned out. Chad will have has hands full with options!

Be sure to say hi to Lions at MGM Grand and then head to their buffet. It was great in 2009 when I had my honeymoon there.

If you're into museums, go to the Mob Museum near Fremont street and a walk down the road takes you to the Pawn Stars store.

Otherwise have fun.

So basically you've told Chad to plan to be spontaneous? :)

Anyways, have a wonderful time!!

Birthday twinsies! I'm turning 40 tomorrow as well!

I wish I could just head out to Vegas for a weekend, but my wife is a planner as well. And, further to that, her plans usually cost $$$ ("I want to go to this show, and then go to that show...")

Have a great trip, and a great day!

Happy birthday, CJ! I know it's not the usual thing, but knowing you've been working hard to get into shape you might consider getting out of the city for a bit of hiking. Red Rock Canyon is just outside of the city, it's breath-taking, and has lots of hikes that are suitable for all fitness levels.
