las vegas, july 2010

Spent a couple days in Vegas to celebrate the boyfriend's 23rd birthday. Couldn't ask for an amazing trip with good company. Sweating in 100 degree weather. Checking in early at the Luxor. Mango Fat Tuesdays (extra shot) in one hand and a jalapeno pretzel on the other (TWICE!). Knocking out after two hours. $30 cab rides to Chinatown and back for cheap $4.95 food. Checking out early in the morning. Eggs Benedict from Hash House A Go Go. Mimosas. Fashion Show Mall. Shopping at Zara and ending up with a pair of camel colored trousers and black leggings. Finding a Vegas Hello Kitty at the ABC Store (reminds me of good times in Hawaii!). Checking in at Excalibur. Pool side. Sugar Factory. Driving down the strip at dusk. THE BUFFET AT THE WYNN! Wynn Signature Punch with Rum. Food Babies. Loud nights with eight people in one room. Checking out. Mr. Cashman slot machine. Fashion Show Mall for the ABC Store and Food Court. HOME.

To be honest, I'm not much of a Vegas girl and the weather was TERRIBLE. Flips flops over heels for the win. I'm not much of an alcoholic (like most people I know haha). Plus, it's too expensive for drinks and I'd rather use it towards yummy food. Can't wait till San Francisco next month. Weather will be oh so wonderful, food will be oh so tasty, and new clothes in my closet will be oh so beautiful.

If you can't already tell, my interest has slowly shifted from fashion and clothes to food and traveling. Sure, I have my share of shopping but not as much as it used to be. After many trips to Buffalo Exchange and realizing how much money I've wasted, I just can't keep wasting money on disposable clothing. I already have enough of that to last me for awhile. It just breaks my heart to know that the one thing that I've loved the most for so long isn't my number one priority right now. But until I can afford Marc by Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Chloe, and all the beautiful clothes both vintage and designer, traveling and food will do for now.

My boyfriend and I have been together for seven and a half years and the subject of marriage, weddings, and kids are always brought up (not just between ourselves, but others continuously asking when are we going to tie the knot). To be honest, it's more of us not ready to give up everything that we have going on now just yet. We're young and we won't be young for long so kids are definitely out of picture for the next ten years or so. Marriage, on the other hand is a different story. I love planning our future wedding. We plan on getting married in New York, engagement photos in Central Park, pretty ethereal dresses, beautiful centerpieces with New York's skyline in the background, and a honeymoon in Bora Bora. We're (or at least I am haha) aiming within four maybe five years. It will be definitely be an exciting chapter in our lives.

vegas part three

las vegas, march 2010

I will be spending a couple days this coming week in Vegas to celebrate my boyfriend's 23rd birthday! I'm so ready for some Fat Tuesdays, The Buffet at the Wynn, pretzels, Hash House, and so much more. Seriously, three Vegas trips in one year is way out of my character. I usually go to San Francisco but $22 for a night at the Luxor sounded tempting compared to $200/night in SF. My traveling as of right now (depending on my financial situation since of course I'm paying for most of my trips out of my own pocket while my mother pays for our family trip) are listed below:

July: Vegas
August: San Francisco and Napa Valley/Sonoma
December/January: New York City/Washington DC, Georgia, and Maui/Oahu
May/June: Japan or Europe

So excited. Now, must continue saving money to finance the trips!

This summer has worn me out and we're only halfway through! Since school ended, I've:

1. attended three graduations and three graduation parties in one day
2. hopped on a plane to Hawaii
3. bowling mondays!
4. getty museum with the only little gal I would ever babysit
5. miniature golfing
6. laker parade
7. kayaking with friends
8. dropped off my mother to the airport
9. happy hours at Yardhouse
10. lunch at Furaibo
11. endless shopping with my mother
12. three different 4th of July parties
13. billiards with the boyfriend
14. work work work to pay for it all!

I feel like life needs to slow down just a tad bit. Must recharge and refuel and start all over again.
