Friiiiiiday, Friday....

1] Vegas: A full recap will be done sometime next week but for now here are some quick snapshots. The trip/vacation parts of Las Vegas were awesome. It was so much fun sharing the experience with SportySpice, BabySpice and Le Husband this year. We partied till early morning, ate at Hash House, saw the fountains, enjoyed good food and drinks, gambled and won money and just had a good vacation. Minus the fact our team lost. The loss was a BITTER pill to swallow Saturday and the bitterness probably won't go away for awhile. Right now though, I'm choosing to focus on the fabulous memories made with three of my favorite people.

2] Fall Fashion: Aka what fall fashion? I have yet to be really WOWed by anything this season. It's really all the same stuff it's been the past few years; boots, skinnies, leggings and big sweaters oh my...snooze. Where's the drama and the NEW?!?! Although, now that I think about it, this might be the best thing ever for my wallet because I'm not spending unnecessary money on outfits/deals/steals that I don't need. #walletwin!

3] Cowboys beat the Redskins: Yes, I know I'm late mentioning this, but the game was on while we were still in Vegas so I haven't had a chance to blog about the results until today. This game is always a huge game and until RG3 was added to the team it was pretty one sided on the Cowboy's end. We rocked the series for awhile, but recently it's been more back and forth aka MORE STRESS for a Dallas fan in DC. But, this weekend good prevailed [winkwink] and my boys brought home the WIN! #howboutthemcowboys!

4] End to the furlough: Woohoo, it's over and people are back to work, thank goodness! I personally was not affected but my dad was the first week. He was able to turn a bad situation into a good one and really used the time to help Mama B at home and just enjoyed the 'vacation'. I've had many friends affected though, and it's been a real run of the gambit in the area. There are those where the furlough has been more of an annoyance than anything, just a change in a routine, but no real difference with spending or budgeting. And others where the missed paychecks really changed and hurt their normal way of life. I'm hopeful the government keeps it's word on back-pay and really pray we don't have to go through this again. It gives our country a bad name and that is inexcusable.

5] THE HEAT: Yeah, I may be a tad bit behind with this movie, but it is bombdotcom y'all. I watched it this week and was rolling the entire time. The script is hilarious and McCarthy & Bullock are pure comedy perfection. For once, the adult language and content isn't just there for show, rather for comedy and to add a bit or reality to the situation. If you haven't watched this movie yet, go rent it this weekend, you won't be disappointed.
Happy Friday sweet lovely friends! < 3

I havent seen the Heat yet but now I want to see it. I was worried that it would be another over the top stupid movie but glad to hear it's funny. Maybe we'll watch it tonight :)
I'm not going to comment on the Skins/Cowboys game. Other than what I just commented :)
Glad you had a good time with the sissies and hubby--good people can make a good trip that much better!

Totally agree about the fall fashion... I only see myself buying some new leggings this year. :)

OMG! I love the title of your blog. SO creative! :) I agree about the fall fashion..but for me that's a good thing. I mean, you really can't go wrong with cute sweaters and boots:)

Courtney B said...

So sorry about your loss.... BUT I'm glad you LOVED Vegas! Can't wait for your recap!!
I agree, thank goodness the shut down is over. But here's hoping the decisions that were made are something we can all live with! The government these days, man! UGH!

I knew you'd end up having fun in Vegas...I mean I think it's probably impossible not to haha The Heat is absolutely hilarious! Loved it!

I want to see "The Heat" too - anything with Sandy B. (in my mind, we are friends...) is awesome!

We are Cowboy's fans too - it was a big win in our house! :)

I still haven't see The Heat (hangs head in shame) but I really want to!! Maybe we'll rebox it when my mom visits next week!

Bitzy said...

I had soo much fun with you!
(also, the official Bellagio account liked my fountain pics on instagram... I felt real legit)

K. Elizabeth @ YUMMommy said...

Yes, I am so glad to see the end to this government shutdown! I'm definitely going to be even more conscious of who I'll be voting into Congress in the next election. It's crazy how many families were put of out work. Thank goodness some of them will get back pay.

Glad you had fun in Vegas. It's still on my list of places to visit.

Hi there— stopping by your blog from the Five on Friday link up!

On my last trip to Vegas we went to Hash House too, and I ate my meal for 3 more meals after the fact! Looking forward to your recap of Vegas.

I just started blogging at ShowmeAshley.com – hope you’ll stop by sometime too!

Have a fun weekend!

I really want to see The Heat! I knew it was going to be good. I'm sorry your dad was affected by the furlough, and I just hope that everyone plans for future governmental issues. Nobody has savings these days, and then they can't support their families in these times!
