"Thanks Mollie for letting me be a guest blogger for the Mollie Morgan Blogspot. And for those of you who do not know me, well, all you need to know is that I am a single girl from Memphis and I work for Elvis. Seriously. I live, eat, and breathe the city of Memphis. But for the next couple of days I will not bore you with Memphis facts. I have been assigned to report on the fabulous town of Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be my first time there, next to the time my parents took me when I was about 10 years old (thanks Mom and Dad) so that trip doesn’t count. Needless to say, I am overwhelmed with excitement and nervousness. I am nervous because a) I haven’t flown in years, b) of how much money I am going to spend (because I don’t have any), and c) there is no telling what might happen while I am there. Did I mention I am going with a group of 9 people, a combination of friends from high school and college, and we are no where near the maturity level we are supposed to be on. Now combine that with Las Vegas and you have yourself some stories. If you have seen the movie “The Hangover”, I can only think about the parallel circumstances we might get ourselves into. I am assuming this is why Mollie asked me to blog about this trip.
I started packing 2 days ago. This is just who I am – a planner. I can’t help it. I even planned out the nights in Vegas. I really need to relax. Maybe Vegas is the solution to that problem. Anyway, I have tried to pack as little as possible, but we all know how girls are – that’s just not happening. I have also done my research on how much alcohol you can pack in your checked bag (this is my way of saving money) and you can pack up to 5 liters! Do you realize how much liquor that is? If not, go to a liquor store and find out. It blew me away. So I have the vodka packed, along with my dresses and heels, so I think I am set. Nothing else really matters, right?
We have a couple things planned for our 4 day, 3 night trip. A couple Cirque shows, shopping, drinking, you know the drill. I am going to try to keep up with is as best as I can, for your entertainment only.
