It's Friday, But It's Not A Flashback!


This is where I've been for the past few days...land of bright lights, big spenders, flashy shows, and flashy women. I am none of these, so of course I stick out like a very sore thumb. And that's OK...we just bring country to town. I think Las Vegas appreciates our downhome presence.

It's very pink here. And that makes me happy, of course. Flamingoes roam the property. I've decided we need some back home. Our flamingoes might be of the plastic variety, but I'll not make an issue of that. You won't either, right?

Photobucket
Wayne. Brady. Rocks. My. World. We're seeing him live. Tonight. Yeah, just a bit excited. I really want to give him a hug. Do you think he'd mind?

Photobucket
My parents believe their lives will not be complete until they have seen Cher perform live on stage. Their completion will be finalized at 7:30 tomorrow night. I'll let y'all know if she's fully dressed the entire time. But really, I highly doubt it. I may have to sneak backstage and borrow some of her wigs.

I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend...if I win big on the penny slots (woo, I'm a rebel!) I'll be sure to spread the love around to all my bloggy peeps. Yesterday I won $18! No, I won't spend it all in one place.

Happy weekend, everybody!

Wowzers! Have a fabulous, and prosperous time!

Sissy said...

Can't even imagine Vegas although I do love a slot machine. But I hate it when my hands smell afterwards like metal. Metal that hundreds of other germy people have touched. Oh my. I might have to go wash my hands.

Amy said...

Have the most fun!! Did you wear those pink shoes? How was Wayne? Details!!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I hope you are habbing a gud time.

I hab a code.

I want chicken soup.

I love Wayne.

I'm on too many drugs.

Heather said...

Hope Wayne is all he's cracked up to be (that was kind of a pun, get it?).

Good luck on the slots, you crazy girl. $18...what'll that buy ya?

I wanna see a pic of you in the shoes, darnit.

Mrs. S said...

I love WB too. He's hot and funny.

Cher, I don't really get. I don't think she sings pretty or is pretty....but that's just me! It's not my generation, I guess.

Vicki said...

You won't look country in those shoes!...You never look country anyway.

Julie said...

Looks like you are having fun, I am envious you are seeing Wayne, I would love to... tell us how it was :) Congrats on the $18

Teri said...

That looks like so much fun.

Except for the Cher part. Ick.

But everything else there is pretty cool. Win big today!

Kat said...

I wanna see a picture of you in the shoes. And the outfit that went with said shoes.

Have fun at Wayne Brady! Michael and I went to see Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood in concert a few months ago and it was hilarious. I ate too much at dinner before we went, and felt like I was having a heart attack the entire time. You know, laughing so hard you don't make any noise, but the tears come rolling down your face? Great show!

Heather said...

If I was there, I'd make SURE we snuck backstage to try on some wigs...and possibly a few props...and most definitely some shoes. And then, we'd dance out on stage like one of the back up dancers and twirl around in our finery.

I need a vacation...

Rhea said...

I'm jealous! I've never been to Vegas. I don't think it's really my kind of place, but it's somewhere I need to visit at least ONCE in my life, I figure.

Have fun! Win BIG!

Jori-O said...

Hey welcome to my town! I wish I had some fabulous hook-up to pass along to you, but unfortch, Cher and I had a falling out last year and we aren't currently speaking.... =) Hope you enjoy your stay!

sassy stephanie said...

My parents moved to Vegas last month. I need to go visit soon.

Girl, why didn't you call me? I can throw down some serious pennies.

Tiffany said...

I would have so met you there if I had known. Easy drive and you and me in Vegas?

Forget about it.

I left a message on swirl girl saying I wouldn't be caught dead with you in an applebees but Vegas... oh yeah baby.

scargosun said...

I cannot WAIT to hear about this. :)

Debbie said...

I hope you have a fantabulous time...in those hot pink shoes...hugging Wayne Brady...and dancing with Cher ;)

Live.Love.Eat said...

If I could turn back time, if I could find a way..........la la la. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brandy said...

Gorgeous pictures...can't wait to see more. Especially if you get your hands on the wigs.

Have fun, win big!!

Tori said...

SO jealous that you're gonna get to see Wayne Brady! We love him around here... he's just too freakin' funny! Have fun!

angie said...

Can't wait to hear all the details! Win big! :)

Kim said...

I am sooo jealous! My trip to Vegas was cut short! We really want to go back someday! Maybe that will happen when my kids get out of college. Oh wait a minute, by then I will have grandkids and still be broke!

Have fun!

Jennifer P. said...

I was at the Flamingo exactly a year ago! Deja vu :)! Doesn't it smell awfully coconut-y in there?

Win big on those penny slots and I hope Cher doesn't crumble to dust before your eyes :)!

I'm betting Cher is as naked and legally possible! Hope your parents survive!

Veggie Mom said...

Never been to Vegas! Play a couple of slots for me, will ya? BTW, You TOTALLY Rock! If ya wanna see how I Rock, please tune in. And come join in the fun!

CaraBee said...

My sister got married in Vegas about 10 years ago. It was great. Everyone else left ahead of me and I had 6 hours to kill before my flight. I was too cheap to throw down $75 for the Cirque du Soleil show that I REALLY wanted to see. So I went out and played quarter slots and managed to lose $200 in 45 minutes. I could have gone to the show and bought tickets for two strangers with the money I carelessly gambled away. I've always kicked myself for that. Of course, it was part of $500 I had won the day before so I wasn't completely depressed, but still.

Hope you're having a fabulous time!

Insane Mama said...

$18.00 Wow! Don't get all crazy now. Cher, my parents love her too!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Hi! Just got back from Vegas this afternoon. Didn't go to the strip this time round though. We stayed at the Nugget for Bikefest. Just took a fat nap to catch up on sleep and now I'm wide awake. Hope you're having as much fun as I did!

Tony C said...

Wow, I love Vegas. Is that wrong? Should I feel guilty?

I hope not because I want to go back soon.

The Nice One said...

Looks like you had fun.
My trip to vegas, not as much fun. But at least I have some GREAT stories to tell. I mean..not everyone gets the experience of having strangers walk into their hotel room, right? :)
