So the cold I came home with isn't so fun (damn planes), but otherwise it was an amazing weekend.
Highlights: Awesome company. Played $10 and cashed out at $23! Came home with money! Dancing with my girlfriends. Amazing food.
Friday night Ro's sister Rach used a connection to get us into Pure, a nightclub at Caesars, ahead of the line and right into the table service section. We also got free drinks.

I was completely done by 2 (aka 5am on the east coast!) and headed back with Ro to get some sleep.
Saturday we hit up the pool for most of morning, then Ro and I got some lunch at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant.
|Fuji apple and fennel salad with cheese and candied nuts. Amazing!|
After a quick round on the slots, and a 20 minute lay down, I was ready for Saturday night.
First we watched the sirens show outside of Treasure Island, then we headed to Lavo (at the Palazzo) for an amazing dinner...
A quick stop to watch the fountain show outside of the Bellagio...
Then it was on to our big night at Haze (at the Aria)... complete with table service, bouncer escorts to the bathroom, and some choice seating placement, next to rapper J.Cole!
It was a night to remember.
Sunday Ro and I got up, got ready, and were out the door by 9. Her sister was sweet enough to give us a ride to the airport. A brief snooze on the plane help the ride home go a lot quicker then the ride there.
It was such a fun weekend, and a much needed break. But it was so good to get home and see my baby and my boy again. Gwen held my hand all the way home, occasionally putting it to her face, which just melted my heart.
I was definitely a little hard to get up for work today. I can't decide if this should count as a longer week or a shorter one... this weekend is when Trav, Gwen, and I head to Pittsburgh for my work event. We leave Friday, so I'm not working Friday, but then I have to work Saturday and part of Sunday... but then I have Monday off to drive home. Its going to be another fun, but tiring weekend.
For now, back to work.
Updated to Add: I can't believe I forgot to mention how Trav and Gwen did on their own... As luck would have it, my MIL was in town (staying at Willy's) for unrelated reasons, so they headed over there both days. A nice distraction. But they did great, and I think they would have done great anyway. Yay!
