Two Words....Vegas Baby!

That's right. This time tomorrow I will be the city that truly never sleeps. I will be there to attend a wedding of a dear friend and her beau. Three lovely nights away from home. Consisting of 11 meals in peace without having to cut up anyone else's food. No one crawling into my bed in the wee hours of the morning, at least uninvited anyway(just kidding, honey). Mr. Weasel will be staying at home with the gang(he's such a good guy).

Thursday night will be our 'girls night out' not quite a bachelorette party, but a chance to have some girl time together that we don't get very often living 2 states away from each other. And we will be meeting up with the fellas later in the evening anyway.

Friday at noon will be the wedding. I know what you are thinking, but there will be no flying Elvi involved. No matter how much I begged. No drive through wedding chapel. And no silly costumes or themes. I know, I know, why bother getting married in Vegas then, right?

They have decided to tie the nuptial knot at Red Rock Canyon. A beautiful mountain lookout in the middle of the desert. It's an absolutely gorgeous nature park right outside of Las Vegas.

In front of an intimate group of family and friends they will exchange vows. And then the party shall begin! I'm not sure of the exact game plan yet, but I trust that it will turn out well. I do not know what the rest of the weekend holds in store, but hey, we're in Vegas, where the sky is the limit. I'm sure I will find some opportunity to hit the tables, lots of good food and free drinks a flowin'.

So I am off to Vegas for what's sure to be a grand old time. You won't here from me until Monday and the less I blog about it, the better time that I had. What happens in Vegas, well.....you know.

Wow. Hope you all have a lot of fun! Personally, ever since Mel Torme passed on, my longing to go to Vegas has diminished quite a bit. You must hit the M&Ms factory!!

Have fun! I got married in Vegas, at the MGM, in the back; it was great. Here's 5 bucks, put it on red.

ND, Did you have to supply your own Flying Elvi? Consider your bet placed.

Captain, Time to go back. Wisk the wife away and renew your vows with Shaft.

Tom, I gaurantee I'll have fun. You can still see Mel do his bit at the wax museum. The m&m factory, is that where I can place NukeDad's bet?

Your husband's a brave man to let you out for not only three days but three days in Vegas while he "will be staying at home with the gang". I agree, good guy.

Every once in while you have to let your hair down and have fun (not too much). Helps to recharge the batteries. Put 5 bucks on red for me...

OOHH YEEEAHH!! I got married in Vegas as well. But really? There are a LOT more fun things to do in Vegas besides get married. Hey, I'm but a 4 hour drive away...

Woohoo!!! Have a fabulous time! Vegas weddings rock :) My opinion may be a little skewed though. I got married at the Paris, and loved it!

Congratulations to your friend, and can't wait to read all about it ;)

WOO! I hope you have a BLAST! And, no offense to your hub or kids, but to have that be an ALONE trip is just AWESOME! Let us know how it goes!
