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!

Wind Farms and Whimsy: A Weekend in Palm Springs

IMG_0214 2

Even in the stifling heat of August, Palm Springs, despite its smack-dab-in-the-middle-of-the-desert location, is a fantastic little place. It has lots of charm and character and, even better, wind farms! I was at a bachelorette party Saturday and Sunday, and we spent most of our time swimming and sunning and kind of playing pool volleyball. Great times! I also felt the need to include a photo of this really cute fabric-covered camera (film camera. With a giant flash. Love!).
