Photos from Vegas

We went to Las Vegas last weekend along with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. We had an awesome time together! We all got along really well and did almost everything together. I got to eat crab legs at my favorite crab leg place, the Mandalay Bay, and I also got cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory! YUM!

Hubby and me at the airport the night we left. Hubby, his mom, and his sister playing the slots at our hotel, the 4 QueensI love this picture! Here we are in front of the New York, New York Hotel and Casino. I want to stay at this one sometime!

Here we are in front of the Excalibur. I think this one looks really neat too!


Here is Hubby with a Vegas show girl, dressed in the typical feathers and beads!
Hubby, Mom, and Sis waiting inside Bally's for the Price is Right show that we saw! See the name tags!
Here I am with the host of the Vegas Price is Right show. He is actually the host of the game show "Whammy" on the Game Show Network.
We went to the South Point Casino one night so I could watch this PRINCE impersonator. I loved Prince when I was in high school. This guy is better than the real thing! I saw him 3 years ago in Vegas and made it a point to find him this time too! He really is awesome.....he looks, sounds, and even dances like Prince. I was on Cloud 9! The other 3 in my group gambled while I watched the show.
This was during the song "Raspberry Beret." See the fluzy girl dancing with her hat on?
I took this picture while we were driving back from the Prince show. The car was moving and I was sure I did not get the picture, but I did!
This is Snoop Dog in the navy letterman-like coat. He was filming a video on Fremont Street one night. He was the only celebrity we saw in Vegas.
Here we are at breakfast at the restaurant inside our hotel, which was really pretty good!
Inside Caesar's Palace. Remember when Joey on "F*R*I*E*N*D*S" worked as one of these guys?
I like this picture too! The lights behind us are awesome, and notice the Bally's sign? Typical VEGAS, baby!!!
I took this picture to show B1 and B2. I tried to explain how everything in Vegas is lit up in neon, even the McDonald's! They didn't really understand what I was talking about, so I took the picture for them.
Here we are on Fremont Street, in front of our hotel. We were waiting for the lazer light show.

As I start this comment (probably my first on your site, though I've been reading FOR-ever) I'll tell you that I graduated HS in '87 from BTHSE, and you are living the life I always thought I would have.

That said, it was so awesome finally to see so many pics of you and your hubby. He looks just like the quintessential coach, you know.

Also, and forgive my presumptiousness, but the picture you keep on your sidebar does not do you the justice of these other pictures. Maybe it's just Vegas, but you look barely old enough to drink in these pictures :-)

Sorry to get so personal, but I've been reading you for awhile...

Casachristy: thank you for your comment. I am always interested in meeting new people. And yes, I agree that I need to update my sidebar picture. I haven't liked it for awhile now but just haven't taken time to update it. I will soon. Also, what did you mean when you said that "I am living the life that you always thought you would have"? Also, my husband isn't sure whether to take your comment about him looking like the "quintessential coach" as a positive one or a negative one! Ha ha! We know many coaches who are simply just that, and not teachers 1st. Anyway, you can send me an e-mail if you like because I would like to chat with you more!

Hope to hear from you soon!
