Vegas Part III: Ziplines & Sunshine

(You can find Part I and Part II here!)

Yay for fringe bikinis and Coop’s arrival!

C’mon…you didn’t think that between Coop and I, we wouldn’t fit in some crazy healthy eats, too, right?? Having kitchens on vacation = amazing.

Why did we do this? Because Rob Dyrdek did. And we are obsessed.

I’d have killed for a turnout like that when I was a dancer…sheesh. In schooling Coop on the ballet positions, he whipped out this fifth position. Like a pro. He’s going to kill me for posting this. πŸ˜‰

We frolicked around Fremont Street and drank our 50 oz drinks….and thoroughly enjoyed them. I didn’t even come close to finishing that bad boy.

…which led to shenanigans like this…

Yes, afterwards we realized that we were not even doing correct “double dutch” hand motions. We are quite a group.

Obviously, we asked every street performer to play the Sexy Sax Man song.

We ran back SO fast when we heard this violinist start to play after we walked by. I have not laughed this hard in a very long time…pretty sure I snorted again in this one.

Biggest omelette of all time.

Banana bread that came with our humungo fruit platter at Peppermill.

I will take him as a waiter any day, thanks.

…not sure where my eyebrows went during that picture….

After the waiter kept forgetting Allie’s drinks, he brought her 16 Diet Cokes at once.

Happy birthday, Allie and Grandma!!!

Have a great weekend, everyone! I will be back to regular posting next week. More recipes, art, and ramblings. Hope you enjoyed the Vegas recaps, though! xoxoxo

Vegas Part II: Oscar Sings the Sexy Sax

….and thus begins Part II of about 4! (Coop has not even arrived yet!) As promised, once I finish switching the blog over to its new name and domain, I will make a “Best Of” Vegas post…along with some recipes and fitness posts I have in mind. 
You can find Part I here. 
We concluded with a teaser about a certain video about a certain someone singing the Sexy Sax Man song to strangers along the Strip.
Here is a taste of our trip. Enjoy my snorting.
Allie really wanted to see Cirque du Soleil‘s Love while we were out here. I had seen it before (along with Zumanity and Mystere), but could never turn down an invite to a Cirque show! They are AMAZING, from the tricks to the music to the choreography, and I marveled at how gorgeous and fit the women in the show were. Talk about talent…and muscles!!!

This was when the phone we picked up in the booth actually started talking to us…

The Don’s first vacation picture with another male! Lucky guy, surrounded by women all day! πŸ˜‰

Volcano at The Mirage

Look at that blue guy’s snout!!!

Seasonal display at The Bellagio

Had to stop for the iconic water show at Bellagio!

Stay tuned for Part III and IV….Coop arrives and adventures ensue, more videos,….and yes. More sexy saxophone.

Vegas Part I: Oscar Does Yoga & The Sexy Sax Man


As I am fighting off a weird stomach bug (acquired the last few days of my trip….great!), I haven’t been able to do much the last few days, and regressed today. NOT fun.

Anyway, the next few posts will be mostly picture documentation of our Vegas trip. I will eventually put together a Best Of Vegas post, as I have been there many times, and it seems like many of you will be making a visit within the next year. In the meantime, I finally came up with the right name for my blog, and I will be using the Vegas trip recap posts to hold you guys over while I make the switch to my own domain (and to WordPress!). Slowly but surely! There will be some major construction going on, but I promise it will be worth it! Any WP lovers, feel free to give me tips…this is confusing!

In the mean time, keep checking here until I debut my new blog (although all of my posts will transfer over to the newbie, too) with a new look, a giveaway, and a fitness/health post! Can’t wait, lots of new things comin’….just stick with me!

But for now….VEGAS, BABY!

Part One

Their first Vegas gamble!
Excited! But this would be the last picture taken with my iPhone before it got stolen…

Donald Butler from the Chargers


My seat for most of the trip…in the back with the bags!

Oscar stretching it out before we go out…

“I call this ‘scorpion!’ See my pinchers?”

Windiest day ever!!!

Yardhouse is my dream come true…

“I’m not getting a sig on my beeper…” 
Beers make moms hide in bushes…

…and make us smile pretty….

 …and watch Sexy Sax Man Sergio Flores on our phones…

….and CRY laughing for a solid hour. Surprised no one clapped when we finally left the restaurant. But we continued the sexy saxophoning well into the trip…

In my backseat with the leftovers!

Part II will come…..bringing about some videos of Oscar sexy-saxin’ in public, Coop arrives and we have a pretty sweet dance party, and we get some street performers on the Strip to perform the George Michael hit for us. First videos on here ever!

More to come. Now I will continue to sit here and try to stomach my ginger ale as I attempt to decipher this WordPress mumbo jumbo! xoxox
