what happens in Vegas...

We got to spend the first half of the week in Las Vegas and I was totally looking forward to it! Eric has been so busy with work and I have been so busy with life and we really haven't seen each other. Eric had to do some business while we were there, but then we'd actually be able to relax together and play with Mia the rest of the time. The best part was the resort we stayed at, the Tahiti Village. This place is so family friendly and the pool/lazy river are AWESOME! Mia and I played at the pool all day until Eric called to say he finished early... yay! I found out when I picked him up that he finished early because he had food poisoning. Nooooo! So back to the pool for me and the babe while Eric tried not to kill over in our room. Thank heavens for my little bestie, this trip would have been super boring if it weren't for Mia. That girl just goes with the flow and really makes life funner! I'm so thankful she's mine!!


As if this mini trip wasn't full of enough no-fun surprises, when we were headed out of Vegas Eric asked me if I remembered to grab his wedding ring.

Ummm... 'scusey??

Apparently he forgot to put it on that morning and had asked me to get it before checking out. And apparently he forgot that most things go in one ear and out the other due to my mommy brain. I need 10 (thousand) reminders or a written list to remember my to-do's these days! And the best part was that Eric was excitedly talking about the new ring he would pick out if the ring wasn't ever turned in, ha ha! I was a big ball of stress for a few minutes until I realized it was replaceable. It made me sad to think of the ring that I surprised him with on our wedding day being gone forever... there are very few things I get sentimental over, but that is one of them! Luckily for Eric the ring was turned in and shipped back to us.... the man will live another day to tell the tales of being my husband ;)

This trip didn't go exactly as planned, obviously, ha ha! That just means we are going to have to go back asap and soak up the amazing pool and lazy river at Tahiti Village! And we'll be sure to starve the whole time to ensure our safety when it comes to food poisoning, HA!

My husband takes his off all.the.time and I warned him on his last trip (New Orleans for a bachelor party) that if he took it off to be "single" because of his friends, they were staying at a pretty crappy hotel that it wouldn't get sent back and he'd be in trouble. Luckily he kept it on...and hasn't lost it yet!

I have always wanted to go to Vegas!! It's on my bucket list :)

Andrea said...

You look so amazing! (I mean that in a totally non-creepy way...). :)

Lauren said...

I called Nick one day right after we got back from our honeymoon and asked if he was just not feeling being married that day because he hadn't put his ring on...I don't think he's taken it off since!

And seriously, momma you look amazing! I know I didn't look like that when elyse was Mia's age! way to go!

You did get some super cute pics! My husbands wedding ring was lost at the bottom of a lake last year. He now wears the cheapest band we could find! He says he wants to get a tattoo on his left ring finger, so he can't ever lose it :)

Dinah Gacon said...

Oh my gosh that pic of you and Mia is amazing, you look gorgeous lady..look at that figure ;-)

My (Eric) thought he lost his wedding ring once and I was so sad...luckily he found, but its the sentimental value of the original one!

So lucky that ring was found. Look at that post baby bikini bod!! You look great. I really love, love Vegas. I try to go once a year. There is just something about the excitement of that city even though I like to relax in it more then anything else.

I'm SO glad that Eric had his ring returned. I, too, don't get sentimental over a lot of things but that is one that I would get a little hysterical over.. just saying. And might I just add that it makes my heart skip a beat when you say things about hanging with your little bestie? I love how precious she is TO YOU and how BLESSED you KNOW you are to have her. Oh and of course, she was the prettiest baby at the pool, I'm sure! Hopefully Eric is feeling better! Happy Friday!

Jeff and Cali said...

Okay, my new goal in life is to look just like you after I have a baby.

You look AMAZING.

Katie said...

A cute bestie that loves being in the pool :) Sounds like a win there!!!

Andy's wedding ring was ruined. We had to get him another one. I just don't like that it isn't the ring we were married with.

Emily Beth said...

Ah! What a week you've had! I am so glad he found the wedding ring! That would scare me to death! Glad you had Mia to have fun with:)

Glad his ring got returned! I'm surprised my husband hasn't lost his. It's just slightly too big so it can slip right off on cold days. It went bouncing and rolling in a theater lobby once. But he's managed to keep a hold of it so far.

Ashley Smith said...

Totally jealous of your bikini bod! I'm 3 years post pregnancy and I'm still dragging myself to work out lol

Elle Vee said...

Aww it's a shame it didn't go to plan, but still a weekend away :)

Glad the ring was found!

Martha Woods said...

Wow, what a rocky trip! But it looks like you and Mia had a ton of fun at the pool. Sounds like your plan to starve through the next go-round is a wise one :D

Courtney said...

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad that they were able to ship it to you guys! I would have been sad about that too. I get really sentimental about things like that.

Holly said...

I'm glad they found his ring!!

Also, you look AMAZING!!! You don't even look like you've had a baby within the past year, so whatever you're doing, it's working :)
