Vegas Day #4 - Going home & NKOTBSB

Apparently BFF got sick about 3am and I slept though it.  What a great friend I am!  Anyway, she is still feeling bad so she must have caught some sort of bug or something.  I hope it goes away soon!

We got up and took a limo (my first limo ride, can you believe it??) to the airport.  While we were having breakfast, a lady next to us started having a heart attack or stroke or something.  I hope she is okay!

At any rate, things were no longer going swimmingly, so it was truly time to go home.  After a less than fun flight (Spirit Airlines has trainee pilots, I decided), our friend ShareBear picked us up.  After a brief trip by our respective apartments to drop off luggage, we all went to dinner at Mattito's.  I decided I was still on vacation so I ordered a margarita.  BFF mostly looked like she wanted to throw up.

We went to the concert and it was FANTASTIC!!  Jordyn Sparks opened and I didn't realize she sang Battlefield.  I like that song.  I felt like a teenager.  I couldn't believe how all the New Kids' songs came back to me and I was singing along.  I like the Backstreet Boys, but I'LL BE LOVING the New Kids on the Block FOREVER.  :)  That Donnie has some rockin abs!  We had talked about bailing early because we were so tired, but we stayed through the entire encore.  The encore was Hanging Tough and Backstreet's Back.  How could we leave??

All in all one of the best weekends EVER!  California won't be able to top it (we leave in less than two days, yikes!) but it will be a different kind of fun.  For those of you that read all four days, bless you.  :)  Love you guys!!

Yesterday, I took a vacation day just to get caught up.  I will have you know that even with all the drinking and treats, I lost a half pound!  WOOHOO!! 

HUGS!!

Man, what a freakin trip! It really does sound like such a blast! And I believe you lost weight. That was a crap ton of workouts, and I'm sure a lot of additional walking. I'm so jealous of NKOTB more than anything, but sounds like a complete blast!

I'm so glad y'all had fun and I hope BFF gets to feeling better soon!
