And I won't judge you if you shake your head at all the things I did in Vegas. I don't do Vegas the way most people do, because my past five trips have been for a kickball tournament. Yes, I go to Las Vegas for kickball. The first year we went it was a whirlwind of 'holy moly', but then it became, 'cool fun'. Le Husband and I enjoy eating good food and experiencing the location, more than drinking like a fish, so we try to find some things 'off the beaten path'. Oh and since we're playing for $10,000 we don't like to imbibe and dehydrate ourselves the day before the tourney. Afterwards is a totally different story, of course.
In order to get this post out ASAP, I figured I'd link up with Kathy, and make it a confession post. Hopefully that's okay with y'all, and Kathy.
On my 2014 Vegas trip, I confess ...
// I introduced Trip to Vegas. Yes, that means I brought a bear on our trip.
// We brought our suitcases to the bar. Our flight was delayed and we knew if we headed to our hotel first we wouldn't make it out to the bar to meet everyone. We landed in Vegas at 12am local time, which was 3am EST. I'm happy to report we stayed out until 3am Vegas time #champs!
// I changed in the bathroom airport and rocked a headband to hide my non showered hair. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to look good in Vegas. #takeabathhippy
// I was blown away by our free upgrade in our hotel room. For whatever reason the concierge at Treasure Island decided to give us an upgrade to this amazing strip view. #asknoquestions
// Our visit to Hash House A Go Go was incredible, as always. If you visit one food place in Vegas, make it Hash House!!!
// We finally bought our one year anniversary present. Since the first year's gift is paper, Le Husband and I decided to buy a new painting together to add to our other Tom Everhart piece. We were walking in the mall and Le Husband made a beeline for the art gallery, which I thought was strange. Until I saw the amazing pieces. It took us awhile, but we settled on this adorable Snoopy and Woodstock painting. I can't wait to hang it in our apartment.
Isn't it lovely?!?! Proud new owners… #cheesesohard
// I was mega geeked to go to the Battlefield Vegas shooting range. Le Husband had been talking about it forever, and it sounded like a fun way to spend time on our Friday.
// I was uber impressed with Le Husband's shooting abilities. I did well myself, but he kicked major butt.
// I was a bit overwhelmed with the MP5 automatic feature, but was highly impressed with how well I handled the firepower of the sniper rifle. #shootinggunsisfun

// I snapped this picture in the elevator because I loved how the dress looked. I haven't worn it in forever and it made me look tiny! #classyiknow
// Our dinner at the Top of the World restaurant in the Stratosphere was one of my favorite meals of the weekend. The food was delicious, the view was incredible and obviously the company was fantastic. If you're a foodie, I highly suggest going to this restaurant. Just be aware the top moves and you'll definitely feel weird the first fifteen minutes or so, but then it becomes old hat.
// I lost our amazing professional picture we bought from TOTW and I'm still angry about it. I plan to call the restaurant and see if we can get a reprint, because y'all, it was one of the best pictures [minus our wedding pictures] we've ever taken together. DRATDRATDRAT!
// I'm still extremely bitter about our loss in the tournament. We made it through a very tough day of competition, only to lose by one run in the finals. YES! The finals. WE lost 10Gs by one run. ONE RUN because people didn't play the way they should have and someone lost the ball in the lights. UGH! #bitterbuspartyofone.
// I can't even say, 'It's okay, I still love my team' because it's been a mess this season. We had a good run, the outcome blows.
// I was in the air during the Cowboys DOMINATION of the Seahawks. I rocked my tshirt, but I missed out on the fun. #superbummedbutIlltakethewin.
// We had the two smoothest flights in the world and I'm so thankful I didn't have a freak out moment.
// I worked from home on Monday because I was so tired. So happy to have an understanding boss, that doesn't ask questions. #yesididworkbutalsotookanap
// This Vegas trip was one of my favorites, despite the kickball outcome.
// I still haven't recapped last year's Vegas trip. Maybe I'll do that next week, just for kicks?
So there you go, ladies. My Las Vegas trip in a confessions post. If you're looking to head to Vegas, shoot me an email and I'll give you an even more detailed version of our trip, if you want. I always feel like death when I leave Sin City, but it's always a fun experience.
