Jared and I spent the last few days in Vegas. He had to fly there on Tuesday for his FINAL competition (they won first place!!!), so I flew there on Wednesday to meet him and vacation for a few days. We had an amazing time!! We stayed at Red Rock Resort (the pics above), which is about 30 minutes from the strip, the first night and then went to the strip for the next two. I loved Red Rock! It is nestled up against the beautiful mountains and is equipped with all the fun of the strip but minus the crowds, "Vegas smell" and noise. We went to the strip on Thursday and I sat at the blackjack table for at least 12 hours. No Joke. We will just say that I was unlucky and it didn't turn out in my favor. Darn! :) Jared was also unlucky at the poker table. Which is not the norm. This week is the World Series of Poker, so I think he was up against some tough competition. Well, maybe that was just his excuse :)
In addition to gambling too much, we walked the entire strip, had lovely food and drinks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Here are a few pics from the trip.. I didn't take that many because I didn't take my good camera.
After being gone from home 9 out of the last 13 nights... I am THANKFUL to be home with Jared and Louie! I have never been more excited to take a shower in my our bathroom in my life!
I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!!!
