Las Vegas Without My Kids

What do you get when you combine four nights of restful sleep, solo bathroom visits, amazing food, furniture, and a Michael Jackson slot machine? if you were thinking a much needed break to Las Vegas without my kids than you would be right!!


My parents and brother work in the furniture business and they had me go to Vegas with them to help them work at the gigantic furniture market that is held there every six months. We also did so many fun things and ate such great food. I met so many nice people and this was really the break I needed. This summer has been nutso to say the least.

So because if you don’t instagram things these days it basically never happened,  here is my week through iPhone pics.


Oh if your wondering if I won any money playing the slot machine or bingo the answer would be no. Also bingo is not for the slow minded it seriously gets intense!

My husband held down the fort while I was gone and was amazing. The girls had a blast sleeping on the tramp, making tinfoil dinners and getting new my little pony’s. They probably want me to leave more often.

As much as I loved being away the welcome back hugs I got were the best!

I feel refreshed and ready for my life that I love as a mom again, but don’t be surprised if you catch me daydreaming about how awesome it was to pee in peace without tiny visitors barging in.

    I can totally relate to the nutso summer! That’s what I’ve been feeling this summer for sure. Hooray for a great getaway.

    I’m so glad you got away for a few days! It’s so important to do something that refreshes us as moms and wives. I can totally relate to the zero privacy in the bathroom – grrr. LOL.
