Hope your week is off to a great start! MSP and I took the shortest trip of our life this weekend to go to his brother’s wedding in Vegas. Our flight landed in LV on Saturday at 9:07 AM and departed the next morning at 9:30 AM. Literally 24 hours in Vegas. I don’t know how people travel for meetings all in the same day and still function like normal human beings. We were totally wiped by the time we got home – flying really zaps my energy. Must be all that wing flapping LOL!
Food for on the plane (an Emergen-C packet, Ezekial AB&H sandwich, and a sliced up Asian pear). I always have to bring food in case we become one of those planes that gets stuck on the tarmac for hours. This girl must have her food. I also have to buy a big bottle of water once I get through security for that same reason. If nothing else, I know how to over-prepare.
A view of mountains somewhere between home and Las Vegas. I’m guessing maybe this was over Utah?
I’ve flown a zillion times and I STILL love to look out the window. I’m such a 5-year old about some things!
A little tomato juice during the flight:
We landed, checked in to the hotel, said hello briefly to the family then got changed to go to the ceremony.
The wedding was beautiful! And I love my new SIL’s sense of humor – check out the shoes she wore under her wedding dress:
The reception was equally beautiful and the food was amazing! Don’t ask me why of all the photos I was taking I neglected to take a pic of my plate, but I can tell you it was chock full of delicious herbed veggies, salad greens and a salmon with a little cream sauce. Absolutely delicious!
Afterward we went back to the hotel to change out of our dressy clothes.
Legs = looking about the same level of blinding whiteness they did in the middle of winter. I need to start wearing shorts when I run.
We took a stroll with the family up the Las Vegas strip to see the Bellagio water show, which I will NEVER tire of seeing. So gorgeous! We dropped a few quarters in some slot machines and then the next thing you know it’s LATE and time for bed. I’d hoped that maybe we could visit some of the great places we did during our April Vegas trip (and maybe eat more of that amazing Italian food or some crepes) but the time flew by SO fast.
The next morning we were up at the crack of dawn, and in a taxi back to the airport by 7:00 AM.
The trip was over in the blink of an eye! Hence the lack of exciting pictures to share with you.
Have you ever gone on a 24-hour trip? Does it completely wear you out? Or do you feel energized by the excitement?
And speaking of excitement:
(do ya love the sexy cheffer skull cap? hahahaha!)
Next post will cover the start of my journey at holistic culinary school! Wahooo! Stay tuned…
