Perspective

I'm heading to Vegas this weekend.

Most people would be counting down the days, hours, minutes until the flight left and I'm just here going 'Oh snap, I need to get my butt in gear'. It's kind of crazy ya know?!?

But a lot of stuff has happened since this time last year.

This time last year I was just a girlfriend heading to Vegas for the third time for a kickball tournament. I was still a complete over packer, but not anything crazy like the first time I went to Vegas. I didn't have my Louis Vuitton, but was hoping to win the tournament so I could buy one.

C and I were almost at the 2.5 year dating mark and we had talked about marriage but it still it seemed like such a foreign concept. We were happy and winning the tournament really was an incredible experience.

Fast forward to this year and everything is different.

We are married and this year both Spice girls are joining us.

I have very little ambition or interest in packing a suitcase and will probably pack four outfits, one being our uniform for Saturday. The date has really sneaked up this year and both Le Husband and I are in complete disbelief that we leave this week. It honestly doesn't seem like October kickball time.

Honestly, I feel kind of disrespectful of the whole experience. This is the first time Sportyspice will be in Vegas and I'm trying to catch her excitement but right now it's kind of hard. I'm trying to use her bright wide eyed energy to rev myself up and I'm kind of getting there.

It's going to be super exciting to be there with both sisters and my husband, something I have yet to experience. And I'm incredibly hopeful we can defend our title and come home champions on Saturday. The competition has stepped up DRASTICALLY this year and we will have to play tough as nails all day to get to the finals and win, but I'm confident if the team concentrates we will win.

Soooooo....basically this post is HELP ME GET HYPED FOR VEGAS and wish my team luck purdy please!?!!?
