As If You Cared

I know picture posts are sometimes the dumbest ones of all.  BOOOORRRRRIIIIIINNNNGGG.  Especially vacation picture posts and kid picture posts.  It's like, "Hey, everyone acknowledge (or lie about) how cute my children are!"  And "Hey, aren't you all jealous of how fun my vacation looks?"  Something about it reeks of a desperate need for validation.  Or a serious lack of writing creativity.  Or, at the very least, a majorly boring life.  Personally, I go with option C.    So without further ado, here are my vacation pictures.  (My kid pics were right before this, in case you missed them).  

Dinner out.   Christie and I got together with our friend Jen.  The irony?  Jen lives in Salt Lake.  But when do we get together with her?  When she happens to be in Vegas the same weekend as us.  

This is my favorite picture of Christie. She has the same look on her face that my daughter gives me while saying, "What EVER."

Coldish, hurricane force winds hit Vegas the first two days we were there.  This is a picture of me freezing while simultaneously showing off our awesome view of our awesome pool.

More dinner out!  If you enlarge this picture, you'll see that two of these three people have demonic red eyes.  The other one has angelic blue eyes.  Who do you think came down to Vegas to get in trouble and party and who is going to heaven?  (Just kidding.  We didn't party at all.  We were very good and very boring.  Thanks for joining us for dinner on the Strip of Sin, Rychelle.)

Definitely one of the best parts of my trip.  I got my second ever pedicure.  Complete with massaging chair and irate Vietnamese woman.  EXCELLENT.

You can't go to Vegas without eating some seriously good desserts.  Or at least licking them.

You know I HAD to stop off at the Wynn and use my favorite bathroom ever.  Look at the height of those doors, people!

This is Christie in the car.

This is me and Christie in the car.

This is a picture of me taking a picture of Christie taking a picture of her odometer hitting 88,888.   Do we know how to get crazy or what?

There, that wasn't SO awful, was it? You may now commence with the obligatory "Looks like fun/wish I was there/nice pics!" comments.

How fun! Love Vegas, especially when Rychelle is there. She and I are going to NYC together. NYC won't even know what hit it!

I now feel very awkward posting pictures. And here I thought everyone else was totally into my life!

No obligatory "looks fun" from me, mine is SINCERE!

I actually love picture posts! That bathroom rocks. Why can't all bathrooms have doors like that? Time with friends always looks fun to me. And now I want an pedi by an irate Vietnamese woman.

That looked fun. Plus your hair is really cute that way.

I love picture posts - if it weren't for them, I'd rarely post these days. But, you forgot to tell the story about the pee on the floor in the nicest bathroom ever. Although i suppose that makes it seem not so nice, huh.

All I can say is that you girls look mighty nice! And that trip looks mighty relaxing! No lie!

Thanks for letting me see the inside of a women's bathroom. I was under the impression it just had a couch and TV in it, well and maybe some phones. Where do all the friends sit/stand when you are in the stall? You'd think they'd make the women's bathroom more cozy for when the groups of girls go in at the same time, or at least have a machine that gives out the 'Now Serving' numbers.
