Waking Up In Vegas ...

Are you singing Katy Perry in your head courtesy of my post title? Good, cuz that song has been swirling in my head all week! I am so very excited to be heading to Las Vegas on Sunday!! Hubby and I will be staying for a week to celebrate our birthdays and 10-year anniversary. Normally 3 to 4 days is more than enough time to party it up - especially since by day 3 you are usually broke and dehydrated from being hungover the entire trip - but we are going to take it easy, lounge by the pools, shop, see a couple shows, and enjoy the desert heat!!

This week has been full of laundry and setting aside stuff to pack, running last minute errands and putting together all the essentials the kids will need next week for their stay with Nana and Papa. I originally intended to bring a couple books from the Sookie Stackhouse series (which I may still do), but with all the rave reviews of Something Borrowed, I picked up a copy to take on our trip. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the previews look great!

And in between all the pre-vacation chaos and normal every day life, I am now hooked on Words With Friends on my iPhone. Scrabble with my peeps - fabulous! Wanna play? My player id is 'aprilbaker23'.

I was thinking of going through the archives and re-posting some oldies but goodies here on dot...dot...dot... while I am away all next week. I will not be taking my laptop (gasp!) with me, and I don't wanna leave y'all hanging. Any favorites come to mind that you would like to see again??

Something Borrowed is a great book, I can't wait for the movie! I have read all of the Emily Giffin books and have loved them all!
I will definitely hit you up for some Words with Friends, I am so addicted... (Chackett32)

Katy Perry. Ugh!

It's not that I don't like her because I used to. BUT she's coming her in July for a show and since January, they've been hella (yeah, I'm old school like that!) promoting her show like she's the second coming of God or something.

And I am sooooooooo over her now.

Hope you have a wonderful time in Vegas!
