Last Wednesday I got up at 3am and drove 600 miles to Las Vegas with two friends for the wedding of some good friends of ours. Vegas is SO far outside the realm of my normal life, but it was a fantastic time of hanging out with old friends, meeting new friends, and having a total blast the entire time. It’s back to reality today, but I can say without a doubt that I’m happy we made the trip happen.
Thanks to some amazing hookups that happened because of some people we met at a club as well as some great planning by the bride and groom, we got to enjoy a fantastic wedding in a private suite (complete with a friend dressed as Elvis who officiated, the bride who was stunning in a bright red dress, and the wedding party all dressed up as different characters), have a blast dancing a great nightclub for free until the wee hours of the morning, spend two days in private pool side cabanas, and spend the night with old friends & new friends at a VIP party in the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa at the Palms Fantasy Tower with a private performance by the Ying Yang Twins.
I don’t think I have EVER used this word before, but it was epic. I definitely didn’t feel like a 33 year old married Mom – you know, until the next morning when I’d slip my heels off and crash into bed again. 😉 I can’t imagine living that lifestyle long term, but it was sure a fun 3 day vacation!
