the countdown begins

Vegas is in ten days.  If you are going with us, you are super excited.  If you aren't, curb your jealousy. I plan to spend the next 10 blogs telling you all about my prepping for the trip.  Will you care? I don't know. It just sounds like a fun way to spend my time blogging for the next few weeks.

Today, I worked out for the first time in almost a month.  The ladies at Curves were surprisingly enthusiastic to see my return to the gym.  Am I that witty and fun during a workout that my antics are enough to make someone I don't know well miss me?  I say yes. 

After the workout, I went tanning.  I didn't enjoy it.  It was a stand up bed.  Not a fan.  Which reminds me that there wasn't a fan in the room which is why I must have ended up so sweaty after 15 minutes.

I am stinking and sweaty.  And drinking a cocktail to prep my body for the onslaught of alcohol that will occur in Vegas.

In the meantime, I started packing this weekend.  I want a fun black dress for the birthday dinner on Saturday.  I have two options for dresses.  Anyone who knows me, knows I will pack both but I thought I'd get YOUR opinion.

Forgive the crappy lighting and phone pics.  And ignore the messy, messy bedroom.

Option #1:
Purchased at Ross for a whopping 18.99.  Had a toddler in tow who said Mommy looked pretty.  It was an obvious purchase after that compliment!

Option #2
Purchased about a million years ago for a cruise Eric and I went on in 2001.  I had completely forgotten I had the dress.  Eric and Alexander were reorganizing Alexander's closet and Eric came across it.  He reminded me of how much I loved this dress.  I did...and still do. 
 10 years later.

  So, now I need your input.
Which dress should travel to Vegas when I celebrate the big 4-0?

  1. Like them both. Pack both - after all how much can the second one weigh?
    That is my solution 'cause I can't decide between two!! Love, Mom


What say ye?
