I am packing my bags

Head 'em up! Move 'em out!
Boston Vacation 005
This Thursday morning, family vacation commences and we are headed to Vegas, baby!

What happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas. You'll want to see pictures, won't you? Of course, David will be snapping away. But, look out Pawn Stars! David gifted me with a brand spanking new Canon SX210. No, I won't be pawning it. I'll be taking pictures of everything Vegas! Maybe I'll get a picture with Chumlee and Rick at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop.

If you know anything about me, you know that right this very moment, I'm a little panicked about my wardrobe. Shoes?! Oh, my. I took off work tomorrow just to go buy shoes. Well, that and get a haircut. And go to Target and look at hats. And finish laundry. And pack. And try on clothes. And repack. And jewelry? That will take hours to pick out. Yee haw! I love vacation!

Do tell. What do you like to do in Vegas?
We're all ears.

Happy Happy!


  1. Have a nice trip Mindy. Remember it is HOT in Vegas! sandi

  2. Yes, Sandi. We had low 100's in Texas last week and are heading to low 100's in Las Vegas this weekend. But, everyone keeps trying to reassure me that it is a dry heat. No humidity. So, the good news is, my hair will not frizz up as I'm sweating. Cool. haha ~Mindy

  3. We are going to VEGAS TOO! We will be there the 5th - 8th. We are going to Gold and Silver Pawn TOO! I'm gonna ask Rick and Big Hoss if they remember you. Tell the to watch out for Nancy and I'll ask if they remember Mindy.

  4. Have a fabulous trip in Vegas!! Sounds fun. Be prepared for a line at the Pawn Star shop, a friend of mine said they waited for quite a while just to get in and didn't even get to see Chumly and the gang:(
    Safe travels!!!~Elisa

  14. Oh how I love Vegas! Have a GREAT time and say hello to the quarter slot machines for me...they all know who I am!

  15. My one and only trip was during the NFR Rodeo finals. Andy said the best tickets are for the horse and bull sales during the day. I enjoyed piddling around downtown. The strip was just too much for me - remember I'm from a little spot in the road! Susan
