viva las vegas

ok, this may be short because her highness could wake up any minute. this is my blog on the vegas trip. the hubby was in class from 8:30 to about 5:30 everyday we were there, so i got lots of me time. i read some great books, walked the strip a few times, and wandered the expo floor looking for freebies. on friday i stood in line for several hours waiting to get an autograph for the monkey. vanessa hudgens, gabriella from high school musical, was at vision expo doing autographs. i knew that the monkey would be thrilled, so there i stood waiting for her autograph. we had a lovely dinner Wednesday night at the grand luxe cafe in the venetian. we went to the hoya hospitality room thurs and fri night. we had gelato and watched the fountains at the bellagio. friday night after the hoya room we went to the marchon party. we only stayed for a little while, but it was great. they had an elvis impersonator and a shakira impersonator. some lady flashed elvis and he got "all shook up" and forgot the words to his song. we had a really great time, but we were glad to be home. we missed the girls terrible. monkey met us at the airport and dashed to us to give us hugs as soon as she saw us. then on to get her highness. she was delighted to see us, but wouldn't let us out of her sight. in fact sunday morning i had to stay in the nursery with her so she would stop screaming. she did really well yesterday with MDO. no crying until i picked her up in the afternoon. well that is the readers digest version of the trip.
