That would be my girl Erin. She hasn't changed a bit, I first met her at college and after a few encounters, we became fast friends. She actually is the one that introduced me and my now ex husband....that's ok, I forgave her long ago ;) ..
Anyway, I totally dig this girl, she's a little wild (but in a completely harmless way) and fetchin funny as all get out. I tend to be a little on the reserved side, but NOT her, she doesn't care.....she'll start talking to anyone and everyone. In the elevator, at the blackjack table, at the mall. I admire that, cuz I don't talk to anyone. I'm more of a don't look at me, don't talk to me kinda person.
So, I picked her up from the airport, a little late, on the account that I had a date!! Yay me!!
We checked into the Hilton, (Erin and I, not my date!) and bs'd into the wee hours of the mornin. We took the monorail to the strip and walked to the Fashion Show Mall. I wore crappy flip flops........note to self...NEVER wear again, blisters and raw skin in between my toes...ouch!
We shopped, walked, hit the Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace, walked some more and then made our way back to the hotel. There was some kind of fitness convention going on....so there were some mighty fine menfolk walkin around with all their muscles and fine bodies. I SO appreciate a man with muscles. Erin had to hand me a tissue once or twice cuz I guess I was drooling a little. Can ya blame me? Sheesh.
We ate dinner at Quark's which is a Star Trek themed restaurant, a little weird.. our "embassador" came to take our order...and they had full costumed people walking around. I'm so NOT a Trekkie.
After dinner we sat at the blackjack tables for awhile, well long enough to lose all the cash I had on hand. This cute guy sat down next to Erin and before I know it they are deep in conversation. A conversation that embarrasses me just a little, but E had no qualms about getting a guys opinion on something that I was wondering about. Something that I can talk to my girlfriends about,but not something that I would go up and talk to with a total stranger. She doesn't care, she just figures Hey, I'm never gonna see this person again, so....why not. Why not indeed. Needless to say, she ends up making friendly with the cute guy and he hangs with us for the next couple hours!
We all ended up losing our butts off and then went and danced the rest of the night at this little lounge that had a really good band, singer.....whatever they were. It was just a guy and the girl singer, but she was good and we had a great time.
I'm such a dork, cuz these were the only pictures I took.
Erin and I picked up my kids from their dad's house and took them to brunch. It was good to see them. Ash has been down there since Father's Day and of course Jordan lives there with his dad, so it was really good to see them both again. Ash will be home on Sunday, thank goodness. It's been too quiet and pretty lonely. Ah, aren't they cute!!
