Thanksgiving Flashback February 14, 2009

Filed under: Vegas — airingdirtylaundry @ 11:01 am

You may have missed this one, but I totally skipped over writing about our trip to Vegas over Thanksgiving.  I meant to, I truly did, but days passed, and then weeks, and then with the craziness of Christmas and family coming in town to stay with us, it got overlooked, and forgotten.  A few weeks ago, I thought about finally posting about it, but purposely decided to wait until now.

The bottom line is that we had a great time.  A fantastic time.  Of all the times we’ve been there, this was the best.

We went into a few casinos that we’ve never been in, we ate at a few places that we’ve never eaten at before, and we even stayed at a different hotel–Mandalay Bay instead of Planet Hollywood.

It was my first time playing Three Card Poker, which I quickly fell in love with.  Maybe because I went on a streak where I couldn’t NOT win money at it.

We both made some new friends . . .

And, most importantly, it was on that trip that we conceived a child.  

Sometimes what happens in Vegas . . .doesn’t stay there.
