I’m heading off to Las Vegas tomorrow with Tom for a much anticipated getaway. My husband is a salesman, and he won a trip last year for reaching his quota. Unfortunately, that was right when his sister passed away, so we had to cancel the trip. His company is very graciously is sending on this little trip tomorrow.
I can’t wait. I happen to really like Las Vegas. Maybe it’s because I’m alone so much, but I really do enjoy the crowds and the lights and all the glitz and glamor. You can put me on a park bench just about anywhere in Las Vegas, and I’ll be happy for hours. It’s a very fun place to people-watch.
Tom and I have tickets to three shows-The Blue Man Group, Elton John, and Ray Romano and Kevin James. I couldn’t believe the choices! Barry Manilow and David Copperfield are also appearing there. There are also several musicals playing: Mama Mia, Phantom of the Opera, and Jersey Boys. It was really hard to decide what to do~all of it sounded like fun to me!
I really like those reality cooking shows, like Top Chef. Some of those chefs have restaurants in Vegas, so, yes, I plan to eat at least one of their restaurants. We haven’t made any dinner reservations yet, but I think I’m going to have a great time choosing where to eat.
So, people watching, dinners out, shows to watch, and four new books on my Kindle to read! I think I’m going to be very busy having fun. The best part? Tom and I made a pact to tell each other not to work. So I won’t have my computer, and he (hopefully) won’t be attached to his Blackberry. Everyone needs a break every now and then, right?
I’ll take pictures, and will be back here on Tuesday. In the meantime, thank you for stopping by!
