weekend review: Vegas baby!

This weekend was just what I needed! Our friends from northern Utah came down and we spent our Saturday in Vegas!


Despite our sore feet and that hour or so of Eric and I almost killing each other because we were starving.... We had a GREAT time! I have missed Kyndra SO much! It was fun being able to spend the whole day sightseeing with our husbands. I think that's the first time Eric and I have ever been to Vegas and not done any shopping :).... but we did ride the NY, NY roller coaster. It is crazy, fun! And we saw Pete Rose, that made the boys day! And we ate at Margarita Ville, did you see the size of those nachos?? Eric and I shared and hardly made a dent!
I love the weekends, I love Vegas, I love my friends, and I LOVE my hubs!


P.S. Are we friends on twitter??
P.P.S. Seriously.... thank you for the amazing, encouraging, and sweet comments on my last post. I am so grateful to have so many amazing bloggy friends! Makes my world seem a lot less lonely right now :)

Isn't it funny how much a blog can help? There are so many times I sit down to write a post, because I am sad or angry and by the time I am done writing it seems like I just sat through a therapy session. Especially whe n you get comments and advice. I love the blog world!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

New to your blog and I love this Vegas trip. We are in Monterey now and hoping to make it down there before we leave. And per your last post, as a military family, girl I feel your pain! Everytime we move, it is tough, but in the end we appreciate the memories and specialness of each place we live (and how it helps us grown together as a family).

Ana said...

i so wanna go to vegas!!!

Leenie said...

I miss Vegas! I have never been on any rides the last time we went, so next time we go... definitely will have to hit that up. And the food!

Megan said...

Vegas + friends is a great combo :) My fiance actually lived in Vegas as a teenager, so I've been a few times. Weird to think of living there!

Karm said...

AWE I love Vegas, I cannot wait to go back with the boys (:
Those are lovely photos.. and I cannot believe you went on that roller coaster!!! I just get the heebie jeebies just looking at it haha But sounds like a great weekend, we all need one of those. Especially with great friends (:

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

Dear sweet Courtney...I was so heartbroken for you after reading your last post. I am so sad that you are having a hard time. Change IS hard...and I can only pray that things start looking up for you very soon. Maybe once you get all settled in things will be much better. I have no doubt that you will make tons of new friends and it will someday soon feel like home. Please know I'm thinking about you lots...and sending extra prayers up and positive thoughts your way.

NOW, VEGAS!? That is so awesome that you all got to go there and have lots of fun! I've never been, but it is on my list! I think it looks so magical...all bright lights and excitement! Although, I'll have to stay off the roller coasters....I'm the most motion sick person on earth. Booooo! :(

Hope you week has started off well! BIG HUGS to you! xoxo

Gagan said...

SO jealous, I only recently went to Vegas and already want to go back! It's so much fun! And forever 21 has similar and very pretty blazers too! :)

Baby Meg said...

How fun, there is just nothing like Vegas, huh? To answer your question from my blog, I live in the Boise, Idaho area but will be moving to St. George hopefully by next fall! I LOVE it there!!

Erin said...

What a fun trip to Vegas! I feel like I know at least 3 different people that were in Vegas this weekend! Crazy! You and Eric are darling...even when you're trying to kill each other over hunger!

Kirsten & Ryan said...

ah i love this, i am from vegas and this just makes me miss it so much.

i just read your previous post and i feel the exact same way. the winter depresses me, i didn't even know there was seasonal depression before i got to college in utah. sometimes, particularly today, i feel like i need to get out, i need to see the sun and be warm and not suffer. but soon it will be worth it.

i hope you are feeling better. im sure you will soon love your new home. at least you will always have your husband there with you.

Shalyn said...

I read this post last week and my dad (I am on a business trip with him) had just asked me what I wanted to lunch and I showed him the pic of the nachos and told him THAT is what I want. I got .99 taco bell nachos instead...ha! CUTE photos!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

It looks like you had an amazing time in Vegas! I love that city! And Pete Rose... that's awesome!

Diane Writes said...

Wow Vegas! This place is in my list of places to visit. Hopefully, one day, I'll manage to see the place. But of course, aside from the place, what makes you happy is the company of your husband, family and friends. You are blessed to have them. :D
