Back from Vegas!

Hi stranger...miss me while I was gone? WHAT???? NO?? Pshhh, yeah right, stop denying it..you checked my blog everyday to see if I had updated, and everytime you were just devastated..until now... :) We had a great time in Vegas, but I was glad to get back home! If I had to eat one more meal that wasn't out of my refrigerator I was gonna die. Yes, literally die if I had to swipe my poor little debit card through those stupid little machines...for food..food that is automatically priced $750 more because you are eating in Vegas...ohmygosh, I am already rambling and it's only the first paragraph..this is gonna be fun.



On Wednesday Adam and I got up bright and early at 10:00am to head to the good ol state of Nevada..which by the way was one of the many states that was infected with the Swine Flu. Stupendous. I drove the first half while the princess...ahem...I mean, Adam..got to sleep for a little while longer. After about 2 1/2 hours we switched though, because I was exhausted from only getting a few hours of sleep the night before (I took a nap Tuesday afternoon..and acidentally slept for a few hours). Once we switched seats I just knew that I was going to get a good nap in and be nice and rested for the show that night. Do you think that happened? Of course it didn't! Why on earth would I actually take a nice long nap? I think I slept for about 30 minutes. I was just too excited I guess. As soon as we get into Vegas we checked into the hotel and I got ready for the Cirque du Soleil show while Toasty went and sat by the pool.

I wish I could write a big long paragraph about "O", but I am speechless about it. It was THE most amazing thing I have ever seen! We had perfect seats and I don't think I blinked the entire time. After we got out I couldn't even remember if I clapped..I don't think I moved at all during the show. Hmm here is a little video that I found on YouTube..but trust me, it doesn't even do justice on the real thang. Most of the show is performed over a big tank of water, but during certain points a stage thingy-ma-jig covers the water, so then it's like a hard floor....catch my drift on this? The whole point of going, I think, was so that I would finally shut up about going, but now that I have gone, I just want to see the other shows that they put on..uh oh!! Poor Adam :)


The rest of the trip was just filled with baseball games and eating! We would walk around at night to people watch, but as far as going out to all of the hot spots or gambling..nada. But, it was really a lot of fun! A few girls ended up coming so we hung out by the pool a lot..got a little fried!


Yesterday the team had a game at noon, then they flew back after, so I ended up driving home (well, I actually followed one of the girls back). We made perfect timing though, the guys got in about 30 minutes after I got home!


The first game Adam played in while we were there he went 1 for 5 with a single. The next game, o for 4. The third game he went 1 for 5 again with another single. Sooo..I wouldn't say it was the best series in history..but we'll take it. It seems like the whole team is kind of struggling right now, but somehow they are leading triple-a in wins..hmm..weird.


So, remember how I got a new phone before I left? Well, I took it back today and switched it out for a Blackberry Curve. I just couldn't bring myself to really love the other phone. It was not growin' on me like I had planned. It was the easiest thing ever to take it back too! I had prepared myself for it to be the most difficult thing that has ever happened, and it turns out, it happens all the time. That's what I get for being a drama queen.


Ohhh yes, little ol' me made a teensie weensie little mistake though before taking my phone back..I took a lot of pictures on that brand spankin new phone of mine while we were in Vegas..and forgot to transfer them onto the pooter (..that's the computers nickname) before I took it back. Shame on me...
