Vegas baby

I met up with my wonderful sister this past weekend in vegas- and we had a blast. Yes, I lost money, but not as much as I thought I would. Hubby made me set a limit or budget, if you will, and I stuck to it! (Well, very close to it, which was at least the point for him). What was great was that by the end of the weekend I was all gambled out. YES! ME! I was. It felt good too. On Saturday night, the sister and I just relaxed in our awesome hotel room, snacked and played cards. We fell asleep watching SNL.

I was up at the butt crack of dawn for the earliest of all flights back to SF. I used my united miles for the roundtrip so I can’t complain too badly. Sunday I was home by 9:30am, in my bed, sleeping. Ah- nothing like getting in your own bed after a flight and a nice shower. Sister, on the other hand, and bless her heart, had a red eye flight Sunday night, AND she gained 3 hours coming from Vegas on pacific time to Florida on east coast time. Hopefully she’ll get her sleep caught up.

It occurred to me that in another 2 weeks I’ll be back in Vegas. No, not because I have a gambling problem- a college friend of my hubby’s is getting married there (during the week). And, we’ll meet up with a cousin I have seen in years. Maybe I’ll play a few rounds of craps and blackjack though. 🙂
