to celebrate my 3-day weekend, i have decided to take a short trip to...
my friend erica (see more about her in this post) had already planned a trip and suggested that i meet her there. the big deal about this trip is that i have not gotten to go to vegas since i have turned 21. ever since my big birthday i have really wanted to have the 'vegas experience,' but with everyone's work schedules and other responsibilities getting in the way, my friends and i have never been able to coordinate spending any time there.
this being said, when i found out erica was going, i felt a tiny pang of jealousy. i know most people feel that going to vegas is overrated, but it's something i've never gotten to do! i feel like in our society, it's almost a rite of passage. i do have to admit, though, that i am a little nervous about the whole thing. randy won't be able to come because he is working, and i haven't met the other people erica is going with. but you know what, i am going to look at this as an opportunity to do something that will be very fun - i will get to see erica (it's been since december!) and i can cross it off my list of things to do. i also haven't had a girls trip in a loooooong time (if ever. sad, i know!) so i am very much looking forward to whatever vegas has in store for us.
after the weekend i will definitely make sure to share pictures and any stories with you guys. i promise to be safe and use good judgment (that's for you, dad), but i am looking forward to cutting loose a little and having fun with one of my best friends! erica's birthday is right after the trip, so we are celebrating my new-found sense of adventure as well as another great year of erica's life!
until next time..
