I love birthdays!!! This last weekend for Lisa Taylor's 25th Birthday, 11 of our girlfriends headed to Las Vegas for a memorable vacation! We started the trip off Saturday at 6am in Corona Del Mar where everyone piled into Holly's car and my Dad's suburban and off we went!
About 3 hours later we arrived at our first stop. The Primm Outlets. I have never had so much fun shopping in all my life! After nearly 2 1/2 hours of credit card charges, we all left with some pretty good loot!
Next stop, Vegas! We checked into our hotel rooms at the MGM Grand around 3pm and then just messed around in the room until it was time to get on with the evening. I was pretty impressed that 11 girls were able to get ready with only 2 bathrooms.
Dinner was amazing! We all agreed on a restaurant at the Venetian where we enjoyed steaks, salmon filets, lamb chops, and gourmet pastas, topped off with some tiramasu and a "Happy Birthday" song for Lisa. Dinner was probably the biggest expense of the trip. (Oh wait...no, the shopping really broke the bank for me!)
The night really got started when we headed upstairs at the Venetian to TAO, the hottest club on the Vegas strip! It was by far the coolest thing I have ever done in Vegas. I'm not sure what was the best part...getting into the club VIP (thanks Holly!), dancing with 10 of my favorite friends, free drinks all night (ok...so too bad we don't really "drink"), or running into the Backstreet Boys for Howie D's Bachelor Party! I was on Cloud 9 all night!
And as if dancing at TAO wasn't enough, we rounded up the festivities at MGM's hottest club, Studio 54. Once again, VIP style (thanks Mia!) The music at this club was soooo amazing! All of us girls were eating up the attention the gentlemen were giving us on the dance floor. However, I was completely distracted by one of the male dancers there. Yes, its true, I was hot for the hired help. But let me just tell you...this man was AMAZING! Words cannot even describe to you. If you want details, just let me know!
After hours and hours of dancing we finally headed back to our rooms for oh... 3 hours of sleep so we could be on the road by 8am and back in time for church. Its so nice to have girlfriends to party... and pray with! Love you girls!
