Houston, I think we have a problem

June 6, 2013
I'm addicted to shopping. Whenever I fly back to the mitten, I spend way too much on clothes and jewelry. This trip was no exception. Between Vegas and Mitten, we celebrated Memorial day with a mini bbq with friends. Then Cody and I flew back to Michigan for the weddings of our friends Nick and Sarah, and Matt and Jennie. Cody was in Nick and Sarah's wedding so he attended the one. However, I was able to make it to both! I was also able to go to lunch and shopping with my mom and Mimi on Friday, and to my cousin Quinn's graduation from high school on Sunday. Needless to say it was a jam packed weekend. Photos below are from all the adventuring :)

Vegas FTW!

Holy VEGAS! What a trip! I'm not sure if I have ever had so much fun! We left on Thursday 5/17 and came back that Sunday. I went for my beautiful friend Cara's bachelorette party with our other friend Hayley. We had a short flight from Phoenix and took a cab to Treasure Island. We explored the town a bit, and my skirt was almost eaten by an escalator before we headed back to the hotel to get ready! That night, we went to Fat Tuesdays to get slushies, needless to say mine was Redbull flavored :). We then went out to Surrender night club at the Wynn after getting gussied up. The club surrounds the pool and was the most gorgeous bar I have ever seen! Unknown to us, LMFAO was playing that night which was amazing! Streamers and confetti were going, everyone was jumping and dancing, it was CRAZY!! Of all our nights there, it was by far my favorite!

Cara loves 'Mericuh!
Going to Surrender

Getting crazy!

We met a group of guys from Chicago reuniting from college, and the next day, we went to the Wet Republic pool party and met up with them for a while.
Pool time

That night, we met up with Cara's now husband and his best man and went to see the Cirque de Soleil show, Ka, which was great (although I was running off 4 hours sleep over 2 days so I fell asleep for a bit... oops!). We then went to Emeril's for dinner and drinks before heading to Chateau at the Paris hotel for the night. We were dancing our little behinds off when suddenly, a unicorn sighting! Ginuwine, the singer, live!! So amazing!
We're the three best friends that anyone could have!
Going out!

After another 4 hour nap, we got up and headed to the Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock hotel. Best pool ever! We spent hours at the pool and had to be dragged away! That night, we decided to go back to the Wynn and visit Tryst night club. We had a blast dancing together! Cara and our friend Stacey, who had joined us that morning left to gamble, and Hayley and I stayed out all night! We had such a blast and I cannot wait to go back! Hayley and I have been looking for excuses to celebrate ever since we left! Returning to work was a hard reality!
