The way that every girls night ends:

Turns out that Brooke really likes hotels and jumping on the bed.

This weekend trip was all about laying around at the hotel, eating food and spending as much time as possible laughing and talking with my college bffs.

Room service is a very very good thing.

I am used to getting up early on Saturday mornings to run so sleeping in until 9 (Brookers even knew that we were on vacation and slept in), eating breakfast and going straight to the pool felt really good.

While at the pool there was a lady dressed up as a mermaid swimming around the pool.  Oh Vegas. 

Driving somewhere to get lunch would have taken way too much effort so chicken fingers were ordered to the room, at least we had celery and carrots with them.

While at the hotel we threw this gorgeous pregnant girl of ours a very classy baby shower.  Streamers, balloons, presents and candy…we have got to stop being so fancy.

IMG 0934

We decided that two meals in the hotel was probably enough so we hit up Delmonico for dinner.  All rolls should glisten with butter.

Our reservation wasn’t until a little later and so when our food came out Brooke had fallen asleep in her carseat on the other side of me and I still feel bad that she missed out on the deliciousness that we had.

Ribye and my homies that make me laugh so hard my stomach hurts.

Au gratin potatoes, creamed corn and cheesy grits.  The creamed corn was by far the best.

That looks like such a fun time!!!!! :) All that delicious food and spending time with family.

A few things I am doing today: well, it’s raining here so that changes my running plans. I am starting a new 2 week long series today that involves a lot of vegetables. So that is pretty exciting! :)

Running, eating, shopping, driving, unpacking a full car, moving my daughter into college 3,000 miles away from me :(

Hey- Do you have some tips for getting Brooke sleeping while away from home? We’re taking a vacation soon and I’m terrified ours won’t sleep! Then again if she falls asleep in a restaurant I guess you might not have the same problem, hah!

No big plans, baby b day party this aft after church.

Sorry to hijack but We just took a holiday with our 8 month old and I took the sheets from her cot to use in the portacot so it smelled like home and then tried to keep to the same bedtime routine as much as possible if we could… (Story, song etc…) as well as making sure she had her cuddly. Also tried to have one nap a day in the prtacot and the other could be on the move…. My main advice would just be to try and not worry too much! The sleep won’t be as great as it is at home but it won’t necessarily be terrible either :) she settled back into her normal routine within a day or so when we got home. Hope that helps!

Thanks! hijack appreciated!

That looks like a blast! 5 things today: church, going to the lake, and probably watching a movie today. I know that’s only three, but the lake will take all day! :)

That food looks delicious, and I LOVE chicken fingers. I woke up early today (surprise, surprise) so I’m reading blogs until my friend wakes up, then we are going to the museum of play and running around!

The way that every girls’ night ends? That’s how a lot of my nights end regardless of whether or not I’m with my girls ;)

5 things today: going to church, meeting a friend for coffee, going to the lake, stuffing myself with grilled corn on the cob, and [hopefully] roasting marshmallows.

Phish food is my favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor. Your trip sounds so relaxing and so you! This trip to Vegas has all the most important things- food, friends, hotels, and pools. It’s like an upscale sleepover party! After my long run today I am laying on the couch and not moving for the rest of the day. And I’m totally okay with that.

Janae,

I was just in Vegas for the first time last week! I don’t know the full layout of the city, but we stayed in the Paris hotel and while you are on vacation, take your friends to the Paris and *go to the crepe place* on the ground floor. You will not regret it! They have savory crepes and dessert crepes, and between me and my two girl friends, we split two crepes one day for lunch and they were awesome! A little pricey but totally worth it. We had the nutella crepe (which judging by the food you posted, I think you’ll love) and the fresh berry crepe! Let me know if you make it over there! <3

(And be careful if you do any of your runs outdoors…the strip can be a dangerous place in the early morning.)
