I dropped every single bit of responsibility I have in the world and flew off to Vegas for 6 nights with Isaac.

I can't thank my wonderful parents and in-loves (in-laws:) enough for taking over kid duty while Isaac and I were away. They were more than wonderful.

It was a delightfully carefree, relaxing trip.

We ate delicious meals. Cleaned up after none of them. We relaxed by the pool. And read and talked and read some more. I read over a thousand pages. Aesthetic stance. And guess who finally got on the Hunger Games wagon?!! Isaac read the first two and loved 'em. I mean, who wouldn't? After typing that paragraph, I'm realizing how my views of 'a super fun vacation' have changed a bit over the years....Reading for lengthy uninterrupted amounts of time is one of my top highlights of the trip. While the rest of the city was going strong all night, I was asleep by 11:00 every night. REST!!! What a treat and a rarity these busy days. Sisters, I hear you calling me Sour Grams as you read this.

The wonderful views at the Bellagio. 

Brunch at Jasmine's in the Bellagio, overlooking the fountains

And then, the other nice views ; )

This was my third time to come with Isaac on his annual work trip here. Yet, I skipped the last two trips because of our two young kiddos.

Not much had changed.

Almost everything in Vegas is still big and shiny. Or gaudy.

We went to Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio's restaurant, Craftsteak. 

We went to several other AMAZING places to eat as well.
There were also some business events with Isaac's work peeps. A lady was doing Yoga poses inside this inflatable ball. Entertaining?  Interesting. 

And here is a blurry picture of Isaac and I in the lobby of our busy, massive, fun hotel. Can't believe it's the only picture we took. 

Despite the lack of pictures of me and my man, Isaac and I had a fabulous time on our getaway. 
I was just so lazy. So lazy that I didn't even ask anyone besides the concierge to take a decent pic of us. 

Now, a couple of off-topic things.

My mom's mom, my Memaw, passed away very early this morning. She was almost 88 years old and a very, very special lady. She was loved deeply by our family. I'll be posting more about her in the days to come. 

Also, Annette had her first ballet recital tonight, so I'll be posting about that soon, too.

Good Night and
love on those grandmothers.
