A peek at this, A peek at that

Vegas was great.

Except for the part when my flight was delayed two hours.

And the part where I woke up with a cold on Saturday morning.

And the part where I came home and found out my car had been broken into.  I live in Oakland, it was only a matter of time.

And the part where I came home and found out my laptop was dead.  It seems to be permanent.  I guess the ole HP was saved during the rapture on May 21st.  So long laptop.

I'll share a couple Vegas pics, but should consult with the rest of the ladies before I post anything else...

First off: take a peek into our indescribably rad suite, booked by the best Maid of Honor in the world, and a complete surprise to us all.

The generous Maid of Honor, on the floor of the Bellagio

Our suite was in the Planet Hollywood hotel.  The theme of our suite was Batman & Robin

This creepy ensemble, worn by Jim Carrey as the Riddler, prevented me from falling asleep for over an hour the first night, because I was so creeped out by it.  It was watching me while I slept.

Try sleeping with that at the foot of your bed!

And this lovely portrait greeted me when I stepped into the bathroom in the middle of the night


Our delicious beds, strewn with lady clothes

And now, a peek into our adventures

Giving the thumbs-down to these man sandals

This should just never happen.

At Blush in the Wynn...we all disapproved of the music, and the douche who knocked a drink out of one of our hands, leaving glass all over the dance floor.

me somehow looking as greasy as if I had already danced for hours.  I had not.

ROSES! 3 FOOT LONG ROSES!

look at those free spirits

My butterfly, soon to be a bride.

On to Saturday...we spent much of the day poolside, eating frozen grapes.

The girls reading mags, wearing sunscreen

Saturday Night...a special night -- I'm not sharing any details, except for this moment at the bar in our suite.
I had such a memorable time, even though we all felt a little distant (ahem...too old?) from the sluttiness that was dripping everywhere.

It's not the same as it was in our young, college, single days.  Now that none of us are single, when we hit the clubs looking our finest, we spend the night practicing our karate to fend off any flirtatious men.  

Moving on.  Hear ye Hear ye: YOU ARE NOW ON NOTICE that you have less than 24 hours to enter the SUPER-SECRET GIVE AWAY.

And here is a peek at what the winner shall recieve


Oh, not close enough?  Ok, here's a better peek



  • Huge ass jar of pure pumpkin.  Some bloggers love this stuff.  I don't (except for in baking recipes).  My loss is your gain.  It is HUGE, so if it costs me $10 in S&H to send this to the winner, I may just do a drop kick and let the nearest homeless guy gnaw on the metal.
  • Two boxes of Panda black licorice.  These have fueled many-a-morning run.  They are delicious, with a short and natural ingredient list, and we were gifted two pallets of these boxes (read: about 24 boxes in all), so I'm sharing the wealth.
  • Chopsticks.  A gift to me that I don't want, so hopefully you do.
  • A book that you have most definitely heard of.  I won this by brilliantly answering a trivia question correctly.  However, I already own a copy.  A fresh copy is yours, hoping the winner does not already own this book like 80% of the population.
  • Four See's lollypops.  I think I made it clear that I'm obsessed with these.  You get one of each flavor so you can begin to grow your obsession: Chocolate, Vanilla, Cafe Latte, and BUTTERSCOTCH.
  • One no-caffeine package of Orange flavored Gu Chomps.  I like these better than Shot Blocks, and regularly eat them before runs and races.
  • Anything else I choose at my discretion to throw in the bag.

Oh, and it will all arrive in this San Francisco zippered canvas bag.  It is less fuzzy in real life.

I will pick a winner at random within 24 hours, and I'm sorry but to be fair to those who have entered, I cannot tell you how to enter :(  mwuhahaha.  It is a SECRET.  But the answer for how to enter is discoverable.  So Tick-Tock, the Clock Begins...
