Leaving (for) Las Vegas!!

Yep, folks, I'm leaving for Las Vegas tomorrow morning. It's so strange - I really never had any desire to go, but, here we are!

My youngest brother, Ricky, turned 21 this year (hooray!), and my other brother, Adam, wanted to take him on a trip to celebrate. After doing some research, they chose Las Vegas.

A few weeks ago, Adam was telling me about their plans to go. All of the sudden, he stops himself and says, "Wait - why aren't you and Lindsay joining us?!?!"

Lindsay and I checked our calendars and we realized that we could totally go - we could plan the first sibling vacation!!

So, now, all four of us are going to Las Vegas, and we are absolutely thrilled. We got tickets to see Penn & Teller (YAY!!!). We've gotten lots of good suggestions of places to go, things to see, and buffets to patronize.

Do you have any suggestions? Any memories of a trip to Vegas that stand out?

Wish us luck - we'll be back $1,000,000 richer!! :)

Penn & Teller was great... until Penn selected *me* for one of the illusions! I won't tell you which one it was until after I know you've seen it, but let's just say the set-up scared me so much I cried like a baby. On stage. In front of the whole audience. And my boyfriend and his parents. Penn asked me if I wanted to use the escape clause and go back down to my seat, to which I eagerly said yes. Of course, there was no real danger. Imagine me, stage fright!

I hope you have a wonderful time and happy new year!
