Weekly Goal #6 and Las Vegas

I want to give the biggest congratulations to Emily, Lee, and Lulu for being together as such an adorable family after a very long wait. You can absolutely feel and see the love in their pictures. They are going to be such great parents. I know everyone is reading, but I just had to say how happy I am for them!

My personal goal of the week is to say thank you as many times as possible every day. And my task goal is to make some headway on a few blog posts that I have swirling in my head that will take some time to actually get out what I want to say. They are about what I have learned being a parent and improvements that I want to make as a parent.

Justin and I went to Las Vegas this weekend. It was a lot of fun! I am very tired because we stayed up really late every night. I LOVE to gamble - Black Jack. I almost always win, and I did this trip as well, which always makes things a little more fun! We ate some amazing meals, shopped, and saw the Cirque du Soleil show, Ka. George Clooney was eating at the table next to us at Nine Steakhouse!!!!! I was drooling over him. It was very hard for me being away from Lucy, but she did great with my parents. I know she had a lot of fun. She was napping when our plane landed, so she stayed home and my sister picked us up from the airport. She woke up while we were on our way home and my mom had her outside when we pulled up. I jumped out of the care - I think it may have still been moving - and she got the biggest grin and came running to me shouting MAMAMAMAMA! It was so awesome to be with her again. I missed her terribly and still really worry about leaving her.

I wish I had taken more pictures. I only got a few from the night we went to Ka.

So glad you had a great time! I LOOOVE Vegas! Ka was an awesome show!

You were very good to restrain yourself from running up to George and kissing him :) I might have gotten arrested! lol

I'm glad you had fun in Vegas. I LOVE Vegas. So much. Pre-baby, we used to go every three months or so. The Cirque shows are the best. We saw LOVE three times it was so great. Ka was amazing, too. I love staying at the fun hotels, eating at the great restaurants (Nine is awesome), and seeing the great shows. I can't wait to go again one day! I'm so happy you had a great time! (And you give me hope; I've been joking that it will be 17 years before we go again, but maybe in a year or two?!)

I saw Ka a couple years ago in Vegas and LOVED it. You look great. I'm sure leaving Lucy was hard but sounds like she did well.

Yay for winning at Black Jack. I am so not a lucky gambler.

I so badly wish that we could have been there to play with y'all. John misses his best friend Justin. Kelly, you look beautiful in those pictures!

Great pictures from Vegas!! Who took those? Kate and I had a great time with you guys, and we need to do it again soon. I am glad you won some cheese as well. Whenever you feel down and out, at least you know you will be happier than our dealer "Jimmie"

You guys are one gorgeous couple!!!!

Laurie said...

You guys are so glamorous! I've never been to Vegas, and doubt I'll ever go (unless we ever had the chance to see a boxing match there), but sounds like fun...especially since you were up on black jack!

Norah said...

We love Vegas! Good thing we live close to Atlantic City in NJ so my husband can gamble. Would you believe he put in our Home Study how much he likes to gamble?! Black Jack was always his game until this past year when he discoverd Texas Holdem. We were in AC this weekend celebrating V-day and getting the gambling out of his system..hehehe. Lovely pics BTW!!!

Ok this post reminds me I owe you an email! Vegas....ahh I'm so jealous! George Cloney? You bitch!! :) I miss Vegas - last time I went was when Teegan was about the same age as Addy is now. You are so brave to leave Lucy. I get paralyzed by fear about the very idea which is probably not good for either of us.

I am looking forward to your goal!!!!!!!

Wow, I have never been to Vegas. Looks like fun! I have always wanted to see the Cirque show. That is so cute what Lucy said when she saw you. I have been away from Jade one night before and almost couldn't stand it. I don't know what I'll do when we have her stay with my parents when we go to get our son. I will have to do some trial runs for a few nights. before.

Shawna said...

Glad you and Justin got away for the weekend and had a fun time!

Sarah said...

That's another good thing about being a mamma...coming home from vacation is fun! I love Lucy's Valentine pics, too.

Jenn said...

Wow, what I wouldn't give for a night or two out with Brian! It sounds like you had fun and Lucy did well away from you.
It's always nice to get away, but coming back home is the best!

Sherri said...

I miss you guys! I have never seen anybody good when I've been in Vegas. But Clooney doesn't hold a candle to sweet Justin! What a great time. I bet Lucy had fun too.
