Busy Busy Beaver...

It seems like it's been forever since my last post...because it has! I've been super busy here these past few weeks...

I got a chance to go down to Louisiana for my mom's birthday and my niece's 1st birthday. She quite enjoyed her presents. Her favourite was this little rock n' roll guitar she got. Sooo cute!

Anyway, the BIG weekend was this past one. We went to Las Vegas for the Right Online conference, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity. It was amazing! Over 1100 conservative bloggers and online activists came! It was pretty awesome, and I got to go to Las Vegas. How sweet is that?

That's the strip on Las Vegas Boulevard. I took it as we were descending onto the airport tarmac.

We stayed at the Venetian hotel , had some pretty awesome food at the Cheesecake Factory in Caesar's Palace Forum Shops, ate breakfast at the Hash House where they DO NOT skimp on portions, that's for sure, ate at Margariataville, and did a little gambling. I only played on 20 bucks and I ended up winning another 20 on top of that, so that was pretty cool because I'm not a big gambler.

We got to see the fountains at the Bellagio:

All in all, it was a pretty awesome weekend. I was able to take 2 days off of work and go on a semi- actual vacation! (What?!?!) I haven't had one of those in like 3 years (seriously). Can't wait for the next one, now! I've already started planning a couples trip to Vegas for about a year and half from now. EXCITING!

Anyway, I suppose life will get back to normal, here, shortly. Totally not looking forward to that (especially since it includes 5 day work weeks. I want 3 day ones!!!)
