Vegas was wonderful. The Wynn was beyond wonderful. It is a very high end place, and although we didn't look the part, I think we each felt a teeny bit extra special. Their music, ambiance, decor, details, room, etc, was so nice. It's a very romantic resort, but it's also quite relaxing.
We saw Jersey Boys at the Palazzo. I can't recommend this show enough. To date, it's the best show I have ever seen in Las Vegas. It was spectacular.
The highlight of the trip was seeing Nick Newman from Young and the Restless. (his real name is Joshua Morrow) As college girls, Kim, Melissa, and others I can't recall watched this show between classes. If one of us missed it, we filled one another in on what happened. Nick was newly on the show then. He is still on to this day, and let me tell you he is a HOTTIE. My mom spotted him, called Erin, and then they began calling me. After nine calls to my phone, I finally saw that Erin wanted to get a hold of me. She was trying to explain to me where to go to find him. She could leave her spot, because she was waiting for her drink.
I found him, disconnected, and proceeded to sneak a photo of him with my cell phone (that I forgot to save). His friend saw me, so I said, "I am sorry, but that is Nick Newman." He grabbed him, and he said, "What's your name." Inside I was cursing my damn dad for naming me Bonnie. How uncool is that name? But I digress....he gave me a HUG, and I took a picture with him. Ahhhhh
The only glitch in the trip was that my breast pump had a faulty piece. After two days of engorgement, I had to express milk by hand. I did look quite filled out though, and that was kind of fun for a change. See? Look for the positive in every situation, and you are sure to find it!
It was the perfect getaway. I needed a little break from home. I got to laugh a lot with my sister and mom, drink some darn good (& spendy) drinks, lay in the sun, shop without kids, eat without kids, and know that my husband was taking good care of our children.
