I'd Rather Be in Vegas...

I had every intention of linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesday today to share our favorite vacation spot, but real life got in the way, and I barely had time to prepare my post.  Nothing earth shattering or terrible happened, just a string of little things that all added up to one big fat typical Monday…

I was crazy busy at work trying to get caught up from being out unexpectedly on Friday with Olivia (and I’m still not caught up) and then Jacob was in a terrible mood when I picked him up from his first day at summer camp.  He said that he had a lot of fun, but he doesn’t do well with change, so we were somewhat prepared for it, but that doesn’t make it any easier.  We then got home extra late because I had to fight with the insurance/doctor’s office/pharmacy over a prescription because the doctor’s office coded something incorrectly (and we still haven’t gotten it resolved), and then I couldn’t cook as originally planned because it was too late to start by the time we got home.  To top it all off, I’m coming down with a sore throat and I’m feeling pretty exhausted and unfortunately I won’t be able to take off of work for myself because I’ve been out too many times recently to take care of sick babies. 

Whew, definitely a Monday, but I’m trying not to let it get the best of me.  Just going to end this post, head downstairs, curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a bowl of frozen yogurt, and watch The Bachelorette.  At least Mondays are good for something, right? 

And since this is supposed to be a vacation link-up, I’ll leave you with some pictures of B and me in our favorite place… Vegas, BABY!  We've been 8 times and I'm itching to go back.  I could really use a vacay right about now and I'd much rather be in Vegas...

Thanks for listening to me whine.  :o)

  1. 8 times?! I have yet to go once. Haha! Hoping your Tuesday is way better than your Monday!

  2. Wow girl! 8 times? I've been once and it was a lot of fun, but I know I won't ever get Drew back there. Hoping you get back there soon.

  3. I'm itching for a Vegas trip too!!! Let's go! :) I love Vegas! I loved looking through all your pics too! Sorry your Monday sucked, hoping today is better!

  4. If we lived next to each other, I'd bring over some vino for us to share. I hope you don't get sick and also hope today is a better day than yesterday. It's crazy how some days run so smoothly and other days deserve a smack in the face. Bahaha! At least The Bachelorette was waiting for you. Whew! Jojo to the rescue! Haha!

    Here's hoping you have the best Tuesday ever!

    Your Vegas pictures are so fun. Gosh, that's a fun place!

    A Marie fun fact: My family went to Vegas way back before I turned 21...I couldn't yet drink, so my dad said my sister and I could go see any show we wanted. So, of course we picked "The Thunder from Down Under!" Oh my lordy, that was a good time. A reaaally good time. Hahaha! ;)

    1. OMG, Marie, I'm dying! That is so funny that y'all chose Thunder from Down Under!!!! I don't think B would want to accompany me to that one. Hehe. I can only imagine your dad's face when you told him you wanted to see that one! Hahahaha.

  5. Oh my...I'm so sorry you had a rough day! Take plenty of Vitamin C and maybe you can kick the sickness before it even gets fully started! Hope you have a better day today! I love Vegas...can't wait to go back!

  6. Aw awesome Vegas pics. I've never been there. Love that gold dress you have on in one of the photos. Such fun shots.

  7. Vegas is on my bucket list of places to visit. It looks like such a great time.

  8. I've never been to Vegas but I hear it's so fun! My husband and I want to go for a weekend sometime.


  9. Aww I'm so sorry that Monday was such a pain for you - I hope the rest of the week is much better!! xo, Biana

  10. I can't believe you've been to Vegas 8 times! Wow! Tim and I went for my 30th birthday, but haven't been there since. It was horribly hot (4th of July weekend) but we really loved it. I could rave about the food all day long! Great pictures!

  11. You really need a day off, friend! I hope you feel better soon!

  12. Being off unexpectedly is the worst! Actually, the catching up is probably the worst part! Hope you get back on track soon! Hopefully looking back on those fun vacations made you feel a little happier! :)

  13. First off, I am sorry that you have had a rough couple of days. I totally get all of the chaos and how it throws everything off. I have had a few of those days lately and have been dreaming about going on vacation soon too. My countdown is on (26 days). I love Vegas and I am a short hour flight from there (I have a ton of Southwest points). When you go next, let me know and my husband and I may be able to sneak down there. We have family there too so it gives us an excuse to see them as well.

  14. I didn't read any blogs yesterday because I was doing my recap (lord those take so long...) I'm sorry you had a rough day!!! I hate days like that. I hope the rest of your week gets much much better! And can I have your body. Please?? like RIGHT NOW. damn girl!

  15. Sounds like a rough Monday! So sorry! Monday's always hit hard, don't they? Hope your week ended up being a good one!
