On Friday, I received a Facebook message from our friend, Jason. It said that he and a few other friends were planning a trip to Vegas to celebrate his 30th birthday in February. The message was inviting us to come along… inviting EVERYONE to come along.
When Michael and I sat down at the dinner table on Friday night, I brought up the subject. A short time later, we had already decided that yes, we would indeed join everybody in Vegas.
On our honeymoon, we vowed to travel more while we can. We decided that spending the money to travel is worth it, and we should take advantage of the opportunities to travel before kids. We already have a trip booked to Charlotte to visit friends next month, and we’re in the very early stages of planning an anniversary trip to Seattle/San Francisco next summer. So, Vegas… we figured, why the hell not?
So, on Sunday, after we checked with my brother and his fiancee to make sure they’d be able and willing to take care of Tessa for a long weekend, we went ahead and booked our flights. Yeahhh, Vegas!
Now we’re collectively trying to decide where to stay. One of our friends had been working with a travel agent and they suggested New York New York, but we are also looking into Treasure Island since it seems to have a better location on the strip. Another option is possibly a condo rental, and of course we are open to other suggestions at this point. Budget is definitely a factor (nobody wants to spend a lot of money on a room we’re not going to spend a lot of time in), but we also want it to be nice. No nasty Vegas hotel rooms for us. So we’ll see what happens.
In the meantime, we are definitely booked for Vegas in February! The way it works out, we’ll actually be there for Michael’s birthday, so it’ll be extra fun and special for us, too. Can’t wait!
