We just returned from Vegas to Jamie's parent's house in LA and I am so exhausted (and it's really hot, which we're trying to enjoy before heading back home to the cold!) A couple of things about our trip to Vegas:
1.) If Connor wasn't so cute (and also in the ever-improving and adorable stages of toddling) it might not be so hard to leave him for 3 days ... but it was hard! Jamie and I really had a hard time remembering what it was like to be with just each other. No strollers, no time constraints based on nap and bed times, no car seats or ba-bas or diaper changes, just Vegas fun. It was nice, but we were definitely on the fast-track home to our little booger when we woke up this morning! I just couldn't wait to pinch and kiss his chubby thighs. It was as good as I remembered! :)
2.) When we got to the hotel, they didn't have a king bed, non-smoking room available (even though we had reservations and Vegas is basically a dead-zone right now) so I asked for an upgrade and we got it! Sweet! Our room was a huge, bi-level suite with pink tile floor, huge mirrored closet doors, and a sitting area. In the middle of the room, we had a big jacuzzi (which of course we didn't even use - but it looked cool!). There were two separate "getting ready" areas, a toilet room, a stand-up shower and make-up / hair vanity. It was awesome and I think Jamie was kind-of impressed that I got them to give us the upgrade. We definitely didn't leave Vegas "in the money", but the suite kind-of made up for it!
3.) I like getting carded in Casinos. I guess that makes me old. But as a mommy, having someone think I look too young to loose my money on a penny slot makes me feel kind-of good! :)
So now we have a couple more days of relaxation with Jamie's parent's helping us out before a 12-hour day of flying on Saturday (boo).
PS- Pictures to come soon - I'm on Jamie's computer and I don't upload our pictures to his computer ... hopefully by the end of the weekend!
