my weekend trip!

so i hope you have all been having a wonderful week!! tomorrow is friday, which is always something to look forward to. and as if that isn't good enough, monday is president's day, which (for most people anyway), means an extra day off from work and school!! i'm lucky enough to have a short hiatus from both, so i'm very excited about that.

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..

Like my mom always told me when I went somewhere, "You just act like I'm sitting right there on your shoulder watching everything you do!"
Of course, my response was always the same: "Great, you can hold my beer!"
Have a fun and safe trip -- love, yur DAD
