    Some changes!

    Hey guys! This month is CRAZY busy but I have a few new changes!  Yesterday I set up my new blog design that I put together myself for once (hurray). Hope you guys like it! I redid everything from the social media icons and signature to the header and the little page bars. I tend to change my mind about what I want it to look like all the time and figured I’d start saving the money and putting those digital scrapbooking skills to good use! I thought these colors looked great for a nice chill summer so let me know what you think! I tried to keep it clean…

    Memorial Day Activities

    Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I worked Saturday and Sunday alone which was hectic but kind of nice since it was quiet. My three day weekend started Tuesday but I did manage to do a few things on Monday; namely a work hosted barbecue and dinner wth Carla and Michelle who were in town for the weekend. The barbecue was fun and it’s always interesting to see the people who live and say at the resort out f the office (and apparently quite tipsy). Dinner with the girls was at Chayo at the new Linq shopping center and we stopped by the Polaroid studio for a fun souvenir…

    Staycation at Flamingo

    I’ve done very little Vegas exploring since my partner in crime Ashley moved to Pittsburgh. It’s quite sad really, because we used to go get into all kinds of craziness and since she moved a while back, I don’t venture the Strip/clubs/pool the way I used to explore. Whenever she and her fiance come back to visit, I always find myself seeing new parts of the Strip. Naturally we did Vegas things: 1. A party pool. Flamingo- This place is INSANE. It’s not TECHNICALLY a big party pool, but it’s 21 and over, there’s a DJ, and most people are fairly drunk. On the flipside, unlike most party pools, the…

    Peggy Sue’s 50s Diner & Dinersaur Park

    I am a big roadtrip geek. I’m the kind of traveler who wants to see the world’s biggest ball of yarn, take dozens of pictures of craters in the ground, and stop at any kitschy Route 66 style diner or whatever along the road. I have passed Peggy Sue’s way too many times and on this trip, it was just up the street. We had to go.  We just had to. First off, this place is adorable. Perfect kitschy retro goodness. The food was pretty good and classic 50s diner fare. The best part- They have a park of DINERsaurs behind the restaurant!!! So you can eat burgers, drink ice…

    Calico Ghost Town

    The day after our slightly creepy camping night, we hit the ghost town. The wind had died down (thank God) so we were able to wander the town in the perfect temperature on a nice sunny day. We grabbed breakfast first inside the town and had all kinds of delicious countryish breakfast items. The restaurant overlooked one of the mines too which made for a cool backdrop. After breakfast we wandered some more, taking in one of the mines (pretty cool) and walking around the town. A lot of the old buildings are rumored to be haunted so some of the spots were a bit eerie. Lisa and I loaded…

    Summer

    Ok it’s not summer EVERYWHERE, but as soon as it hits 100 in Vegas, it’s basically summer. Things are pretty quiet for the moment since I rarely travel over holiday weekends (I’m not so fond of crowds and things are always so much more expensive). I found a great new travel site that I’m a little obsessed with! It’s called Tripoto and it’s all sorts of awesome. You post travel itineraries on the site so it’s a great way to share where you’ve been, tips, and all that good stuff. If you’re liking any of my trips, I am slowly trying to load them up to the site so you…

    Scissor Sister Camping Trip

    Don’t ask about the name… Anyone in the mood for ghost stories? I love camping. Granted, I’ve only really camped once in a tent but it was one of my fave trips ever (you can read about it here, especially if you’re a Twilight fan).  My friend Lisa and I had been meaning to do our Calico day trip for a couple of years now but could never get our schedules to match. We finally found a set of days and figured, we might as well get a cabin and stay the night. I love ghost towns and Lisa loves ghosts and Calico apparently has lots of ghosts. In fact,…

    Soul2Soul- Tim & Faith

    Finally got to see this!!! I’ve been dying to see this show and missed out last year. I figured it would come back since it ended shortly before Tim started his Two Lanes of Freedom tour (and he’s touring again this summer so hmmm…) and this time around there was a 20% discount. How could I pass that up??? I took two of my lovely coworkers with me and we grabbed a quick bite at the Venetian first. I’ve never been to a show in the Venetian Theater but had heard it was a really intimate venue. What an amazing show; we were almost all the way in the back…

    Whiskey in my Water

    If you know country, you can probably guess this is a Tyler Farr post. After meeting him a few weeks before, I decided I definitely needed to go to his show at the Silverton since you can’t really beat a $29 concert ticket (well I guess you CAN but that’s not the point lol).  Got great seats up front for the opener Ryan Whyte Maloney from The Voice. I had seen him perform with his band several times in the past few years and he’s pretty good. Tyler was AWESOME. So personable and a great performer. Super nice guy too. If you haven’t heard him yet, go check him out!
