Road Trip: Destination Vegas

21 Mar

Shannon, me & Jenn

The title of this blog can be deceiving… though I did in fact take a road trip to Las Vegas over the weekend, it was not the glitz and glamour you’d expect.

My friend Jenn & I drove up to see our friend Shannon who moved to Sin City almost 2 years ago.  This was a great trip for me on many levels…

  • I’ve known Jenn since we worked at Bullocks right after high school (that tells you we’ve known eachother awhile since Bullocks has been closed forever!), and we’ve never gone on a road trip/overnighter together.
  • Shannon had baby #2 in January and I’ve yet to see this little one (and since she is terrible at sending me pix, the only one I have is from her at the hospital).
  • My first solo trip without my hubby since we’ve been married.  Good because it was GREAT hanging out with the girls for a weekend.  Bad because we’ve already been spending time apart while he is working in OC and I am out in the desert.

So it was a weekend of ‘You watch my kid while I take a shower’ and visa versa.  We went to dinner at Gordon Biersch… yum.  We barbequed… yum.  And we stayed up and talked. 

I love my girlfriends.  It is so interesting to have known them from when I was 18/19 to now when I am 32.  They have seen me through my twenties… supporting me during unhealthy relationships, giving me sometimes unwanted but much needed reality checks, helped me move from apartment to apartment, planning my wedding, and throwing me a baby shower.  We now swap recipes and compare notes on child-rearing.  And I love every minute of it.

    Shannon’s making me post this… It’s all my fault that she’s “… terrible at sending me pix…” ’cause I haven’t set her up yet!:^( I did set this up though http://members.cox.net/rach.bright Anyhow, glad you liked the BBQ… even though there were shrimps!:^) Hey… who ate all those shrimp BTW… I only had two?? You guys are welcome anytime… really enjoyed our time… hope to do it again soon. Sorry we won’t be making it to your house warming party next weekend… we’ll make it down there soon.

    Love in Christ,

    Phil

    Shannon & Phil… you KNOW I didn’t eat any of that stinkin’ shrimp. It must have been our Prego friend! 🙂
