This past weekend I flew to Las Vegas to celebrate my childhood friends birthday! I did this last year if you followed a year ago! Here were the highlights:
- We got in plenty of pool time… which I have been seriously lacking in life! There is absolutely nothing better then hanging out with your people in a desert poolside… and also enjoying some BOMB cucumber vodka coolers!
We ate at some amazing restaurants, including Hexx Kitchen for dinner, Hash House A Go Go for breakfast (I said no to the chicken and waffles people… I am still regretting it), and with the BEST VIEW in tow, Lago at the Bellagio. Let me go ahead an recommend the Smoked Peach Margarita at Lago… Black salt (ugh, so good!) Besides that we did a few bars and clubs at night but not NEARLY as intense as the year before!
- My absolute FAVORITE part of the trip was Saturday afternoon when we got back from the pool, we had about 3 hours to kill before dinner and we kicked it in the hotel room. Now, what you need to know is that Chelsie and I have shared plenty a room/bed situations. But I was thankful I did not have to get my own room on this trip and I got to actually stay in Mike & Chelsie’s room. Now some of you might think this is weird, or not enough alone time… but I LOVED IT. I LOVE this couple! They are really fun. Those three hours were honestly the best of the trip. Mike and I had a somersault competition on the beds (mature… I am aware). We played every song form middle school we could think of… and of course sang to it. Mike and I watched twerking demonstrations on youtube and tried to learn how… ( I always go in instead of out… if that makes sense.) I LOVE this kind of quality time with my people and I laughed harder in those three hours than I have in MONTHS!
- Finally there is NOTHING in this world like a best friend. Cheslie and I are the perfect pair. Just to give you an idea as to what kind of friend she is. She still has your lip gloss you left in her purse 3 years ago. She will protect your clutch at the bar with her life. When you are crying she will pet you and braid your hair all at the same time. She will do ANYTHING you ask her to no questions asked and just be happy to be there for you. Now I on the other hand am the friend who… makes you stay at the bar later then you were planning, wonder why your feet hurt before you have flashbacks of jumping on the dance floor, make you say yes to a completely unplanned road trip and will give your ex an earful the next time I see them. There is no friend like Chelsie. Together, we fight for each other no matter what. I am lucky to have her. BFF UPDATE! Mike Proposed this past February! He texted me WAYYYY BACK in December asking me to figure out her ring size. THIS IS WHAT WE AS WOMEN DREAM OF FOR OUR FRIENDS! I am so thankful that these two have each other and I love the way they take care of each other. I cannot wait to be there for you two throughout your lives!
Just as an FYI… I am an AWESOME 3rd wheel! Don’t be afraid to bring me along! This was a MUCH vacation! I LOVE the sun and as a little hint I will absolutely be getting some more of it in the near future!
