Weekend in Vegas: Pool, Party and Pure Nightclub

What a weekend we had celebrating our friends’ upcoming wedding! We took a road trip to Vegas for a double bachelorette party and had an amazing time. Seriously, if you don’t live less than four hours from Vegas, I feel for you. It’s so easy to pop over for two days—because that really all the time you need there—and then get home before The Walking Dead starts. We hung out by the pool at Paris, had a huge and delicious family-style meal at Carmine’s in The Forum Shops and then partied ourselves silly at Pure Nightclub in Caesar’s. I can’t wait to go back (and will be soon for Britney)!Vegas EDITED 1148353_10102115323771097_1065615514_nVegas EDITED 2 Vegas EDITED 3Vegas EDITED 4 Vegas EDITED 5 Vegas EDITED 6 Vegas EDITED 7 Vegas EDITED 8

Photos of the Day: Vegas Desert

We made it out alive! But just barely. There’s nothing that makes you realize how old you are more than a night in Vegas. There are more pictures to come later, but I handed these in for my photo assignment this week. These are the edited versions (which we’re not allowed to do for class) because I didn’t adjust my white balance and everything turned out a bit blue. Lessons learned!

We stopped at this funny gas station around the halfway mark that had moving, talking, um, statues? Robots? Not sure what they were, but they urged me to try to the brisket sold inside. (Nope.) We had a great weekend!

Road Trip Across (Half of) America

I can hardly believe it’s been seven years since I packed up my car and drove halfway across the country to California. I spent about a year in New York after college and then decided to try San Diego (before L.A….it’s been busy), so I went back to Oklahoma for a month, visited some friends and then drove to sunny Southern Cali.

Along the way, I took a few pictures. But the film got mixed up in the move once I finally arrived, so I didn’t see these photos until today! My husband found the rolls of film around the time we were getting the disposable cameras from our wedding developed, and the developed pictures have been sitting in our filing cabinet for a year and a half, waiting patiently to be looked at. So glad I went searching for something else and stumbled across these. There were even some pics from college in there! (Definitely more on that later.)
