I lost my CTR ring in Vegas

Many of you know I went to Las Vegas this last weekend. So here I am, back home safe and sound but with about a billion stories to share. :) Lucky you! Problem is, since there are a billion stories, if I tried to write them all down in one post it would be really long; really entertaining, but REALLY long so I am pleased to present to you "The Seven Days of Vegas" (please note, I was not in Las Vegas for seven days, but I will be presenting stories over the next seven days):

Day 1~

We, the five of us that went, stayed in a time share about 2 miles from Las Vegas Boulevard so we decided to rent a car. I think that renting cars is fun, you never know what you're going to end up with and I've always had a good experience. So, we go to the Hertz counter, they give us the spiel, and tell us where to find our car. Look what we got! Hello Sunshine!

Ha ha, totally kidding! Here she is for reals.

Note the expression change. All in all, we were pleased with the Impala; she done good by us. Holla!

Bonus story:

I bought some REALLY, really cute shoes and just had to take them on my trip. You have to take cute going out shoes to Vegas! See how pretty!

So. Flippin'. Cute! Naturally, I wanted to wear these shoes, they complimented my outfit nicely and so I popped them on and off we went. (Pictures of me on this night will be posted when my friend is able to get me copies of them). We were going to grab some dinner and then hit some clubs, I got through the parking garage and casino of Caesar's Palace and across the street to Margaritaville before I decided I love my feet too much to put them through so much torture. I needed a Plan B pronto. Since we were at touristy Margaritaville, I decided to scope out the flip flop collection as a solution for my problem. Ta da!

Did I mention they cost $40? I was NOT happy. Little did I know, this was an omen of things to come on this trip. You can imagine how sassy I must have looked getting my groove on in these babies. Oh yeah.

P.S. I really did lose my CTR ring. Sad, huh?! I was driving home when I noticed that my best friend for the last 5 years was missing, Kim gave it to me for my birthday. :( It was too big, I really should have been more careful. I wonder if someone will get me a new one (wink wink, only 85 days 'til my birthday).

You made my night with your comment!
So I thought all my rights were revoked from setting you up anymore...first Aaron which lets face it was a punk, then JD who became a text stalker...
anyways Jason is my cousin who... is happily married. Yup, the good ones really are taken!

Sounds like a fun time, minus the whole CTR ring thing. I'll keep that in mind when I do your birthday shopping.

Oh, and you remember when we hung out in Vegas a few years ago and got those henna tattoos, which we thought were so cool? That was a fun time!

Those are some cute shoes!! too bad they were so short lived.(in Vegas I mean). Thank goodness for flip flops:)!

jennifer hulet said...

I can't wait to hear about the rest of your trip!!!

Brigitte said...

You are so funny! Those pictures are hilarious.... I love your different expressions. And the shoes!!! Oh the beautiful shoes, both of them are pretty cute. What a shame you couldn't handle the sexiness of the heals though... you gotta tough it out and put those feet back in their place. Comfort is totally overrated. ;)

btw, you are a great story teller. You make everything entertaining. :)
