My *Golden* 30th Birthday! {VEGAS baby}

For my 30th birthday, I had planned wayyyy in advance (like 9-10 mo. ago, no joke) and told everyone to save the date for this trip... It felt like forever, maybe because it was... so when the time came to pack up and fly out, I was literally jumping outta my skin with excitement!

This was by far, THE MOST FABULOUS Vegas trip to date...lucky me!! After realizing we'd have to reserve multiple hotel rooms, with not a large common area to all hang and people having to share rooms - that was just not what I wanted. So we decided to rent an AWESOMELY huge house, about 10 minutes from the strip - definitely goin that route the next time too!

You get WAY more space, everyone gets their own room, you can stock up the kitchen with food/drinks, and everyone can do their own thing during the daytime (like me, the earliest-bird of us all, could get up & enjoy a cup of coffee & a bagel out by the pool while everyone else slept - magical!)

AND, the cherry on that cake was that it was CHEAPER than a hotel stay! We only had about 1/2 the amount of people that this house can actually sleep, and we still only paid $68/night (if we had a full house, it would've dropped down to only $43/night)!! And cab rides were about $20-25 depending on specific drop-off location... but split by 4 or 5 people - it's nothin!

There were obviously TOO many pictures taken to preserve the memory of this wonderful weekend away... but here are a few collages to help tell the story:
