Weekend Highlights – Viva Las Vegas + blog news

Hey friends! How are you today? I am back after a bit of a whirlwind trip. The hubs birthday is later this week, and this year I wanted to surprise him with a little Vegas trip. When we went to a friend’s wedding in Vegas last year, he was so disappointed that the Golden Nugget’s famous shark tank was closed. I knew I wanted to take him back to experience it.

So Friday when he got home from work, I finally spilled on the surprise.  I just love when a good surprise works out.  He had no idea, and was so excited.  We soaked up a little time snuggling our babies before it was time to drop them off with grandma.  Then we were off to the airport to catch a later flight.

We didn’t get to our hotel until a little after 9 pm and arriving into Vegas in full swing is always a little overwhelming.  There were SO MANY people out and about.

Saturday morning, in true Emily form, I was up bright and early. I was really hoping to sleep in, since I so rarely have the opportunity.  But sadly, it was just not in the cards. Instead, I let the hubs sleep in and got a quick arm and cardio workout in. The rest of Saturday was spent largely at the pool, relaxing and being enthralled by the sharks. The hotel we stayed at has a huge tank that the pool wraps around. The sharks and fish going by were so mesmerizing. We also each went down the water slide a few times. It had been years since I had been on a water slide, and I forgot how much fun they could be!  The water slide actually cuts through the tank, which is pretty cool even though you are moving so fast, you can’t really see much.

Saturday evening we went to dinner and did lots of Vegas exploring, including checking out some of the old casinos. The decor in some of them was so cool. All the old school, fancy decor of yesteryear. Check out this ceiling, it was my favorite of the old casinos.

Sunday we headed to the airport pretty early, eager to reunite with our little loves.

Now for some blog related news. As my schedule and life obligations have changed over the last year, the time I have to devote to the blog has been limited. I still love connecting with you all, but may be posting less or taking some time away from the blog as I figure things out.

Love – Em
