Vegas, Baby!

If you read this blog you know I love Vegas. That’s why I’m going this morning.

Vegas is a free for all. Taking a crap on the Strip is commonplace. I belong there. These are my people.

My BFF, Erika, and I do a trip at least once a year. We’ve been doing this for the past ten years. Then Ken and I usually do a trip once a year too.



But, today kicks off  the Beth/Erika Vegas trip.

Look! I actually created some cleavage! Thank you chicken cutlet bra inserts!


Vegas represents freedom for me. A chance to be free of obligations, to let my hair down (like I don’t do this every other day), to lose money after playing hours upon hours of blackjack, to a cocktail at 9:00 a.m.

We’ve had lots of interesting encounters over the years. Just walking down the Strip is an adventure.

You see unsightly things:


Gotta give the guy credit for originality:


You meet men who sing with you then put out a hit on you and stuff you in the trunk of their car.


You kiss statues that are really people and you hope you don’t get crabs:


You see Hangover wannabes:


And, you never know who you’re going to run into with big boobs:


Luke Walton from the Lakers. He’s tall with a big...


Grown drunk men with floaties:


Anonymous dudes who pose in front of your chair at the pool (yes, those are my feet, you can tell by the Morton’s Toe):


Toothless strangers who use your camera to take pictures of themselves:


This is why I love the HELL out of Vegas. Because you never know what you’re going to get, but it’s always a spanking good time. And sometimes Erika lets me spoon her and she brushes my hair afterwards.

Now let’s see if I can keep my promise to myself and actually use the fitness center at the Wynn. And run on the Strip. I’m in training you know. Even if it kills me.


Wynn Las Vegas

Cheers and here’s hoping I have lots of outrageous pics to add to this fine collection!

  1. ahhhhh, i LOVE vegas too. put a chip down on the roulette table for me. but if you win, its all mine!!! have fun!

  2. Have fun! I am a huge Vegas lover also, and The Wynn is a gorgeous hotel!!!!

  3. Ha ha! you are hysterical. I thougth I was the only one who liked to grope the wax figures/statues for the camera. Enjoy your trip!

  4. Can't wait to see what you dig up in Vegas this time! Have a great time--nothing better than quality time with a good friend.

  5. I wanna be there. Lucky you. Have a great time!

  6. Can't wait to see what you come back with this year, have fun!

  7. Vegas...not my favorite lunatic MIL lives there so we avoid LV at all cost now...(when I say lunatic I am nice...she is actually crazy as in she has never seen her only 2 grand kids, my kids by choice because she wanted grand daughters and well I have 2 boys! yep I scored in the in-law department!)
    Hope you will have a great time! if you see her tell her I did NOT say hello.

    A pic with a Lakers?? Yuk...I almost got sick while eating my breakfast....
    He was fine when he was playing NCAA and then he went from Red to Yellow + purple...the worst ever.

  8. Ahhhhh I LOVE Vegas! You're right about that place, anything goes. I love that everyone is a tourist and they're just happy to be carefree. It's kind of like Disneyland for grownups. Just be careful about which rides you ride ;)

    Thanks for your comment on my race yesterday!

  9. OMG, have a blast! I'm super jealous. By the way, is that really Dolly? I just love her.

  10. So jealous!! Have fun with your people!

  11. Love it! My friend Joy is from Vegas and had a homeless black woman chase her while she was out for a run on the strip!!

  12. OMG, love Vegas - for all the same reasons you do. That place is not real life and I think it's awesome! Have fun! :)

  13. Bahahaha. This is great. Go VEGAS!

  14. That is such an awesome photo collection! The drunk guy with floaties almost led to a car accident…shhhh.

    I have never done Vegas properly…just a quickie at the airport. A leg of my fantasy psycho road trip would have to include at least a drive down The Strip at night (since I would have kids with me, that would probably be the extent of that piece!).

    Hope you have a BLAST!!!

  15. OK, so then you have to go to Vegas in December now. I mean you HAVE to.

  16. My favorite thing in the whole wide world...

    Zion National Park: dirty-thirsty-hungry-tired-roughing it-hiking-running-rocks-hills


    Hopping in the car all sweaty and filthy, and taking the 2 hours drive to Vegas.

    Vegas: luxury-airconditioning-$50 bottles of red wine-massages-shmoozing by the pool-palm trees-late nights


  17. Congratualtions!!! Have fun!! My hubby and I are heading out that way this summer, just to get away. Let us know if you find a decent place to run while you're there.

    BTW, I know TONS of women (no pun intended) who would *love* to look like that in a pair of shorty shorts!

  18. Have a blast! And watch out with those chicken cutlets...I used them during a wedding rehearsal and one fell out on the altar!

  19. Wow. I've never been to Vegas, but this post has me ready to plan a trip. After, Costa Rica of course ... that looked even better. And maybe I'll need a trip to Boston, too. But then Vegas, definitely, Vegas. Actually Disney. So, it's Costa Rica, then Boston, then Disney, then Vegas.

  20. One man's "unsightly" is another man's "how much baby?"

  21. look walton - uggg hate him. just had to get that out.

    ummm your drink looks a little "gone-R" than Ken's. ;)

  22. have fun in vegas! im jealous!

  23. I was liking this blog/post until it got to the "you see unsightly things"...

    Do you know that person whos bottom you posted a picture of?

    Do you think its nice to secretly take a picture of a strangers behind and post it on your blog, essentially making fun of them?

    How would you feel if someone did it to you?

    If someone did that to me I would be hurt, even if my face wasn't in the photo.


  24. It looks like you're having a great time! Have fun! :)

  25. oooh, The Wynn--nice!! that's the way to do Vegas! my parents went there a few years ago and they still talk about it, like, every day. they even named their dog Wynn. they said the in-house Japanese restaurant was awesome, if you like sushi. running on the strip would be so cool! i love a run with interesting scenery! have fun!!

  26. Vegas is the best!!!
    Have an amazing trip!

  27. Sometimes, I almost forget that is what my city is like.... Living in Vegas is so different from vacationing in Vegas! (That's why we try to do a staycation every now and then!)

  28. i am glad you are getting a chance to relax and let loose! looks like you are having an amazing time! good for yoU!

  29. Whoo Hoo... Vegas Baby.. I need to go again... but without kids this time :)

  30. I love running on the Strip in the surreal.

  31. Um ok.. I'll never get that butt photo out of my head! LOL!

  32. Have fun -- looking forward to your pics. Kinda :-)

  33. 1. love chicken cutlet breast inserts as well. Amazing what we give up when we run (boobs).
    2. taking notes from your vegas trip for mine - so make them good.
    3. you look good with real clothes on! (don't you just love it when you hear that?)

  34. Have a great time Beth! Your Vegas pics illustrate the finest the city offers!

    Looking good in your street clothes!

  35. Ha, well if I ever venture back to Vegas I know who to try and rope into that trip ;) I've only been once as an "adult" (i.e. not a 12 year old) and while we had a great time going Out, we were totally broke the next morning (hello, expensive drinks AND dollars wasted on slot machines). Ah well, live and learn!

    Hope you have a new adventure in the city!
