Las Vegas Trip

Wow! Time is flying! April 2011 will be over in 25 hours and we will be jumping into May with so much to do I feel like I need go 24/7 just to not start off behind.  Everything in the Diaz household is going at a fast pace as usual.

JD is staying SUPER busy with work! He puts in at least 50 hours, but even during the very limited time he has off he is getting calls and emails which always keep him on his toes. It has become a way of life for us.  We often joke that unless the stores are closed for a holiday he is never truly off!
We just took a 3 day business trip to Las Vegas which was really nice! It was with United and it was different then the one we went on in October. This one was primarily for a reward banquet. We did have 1 evening off and we went to see the Cirque Du Soleil show, Mystere. It plays at Treasure Island. Would I recommend it? ehhh... acrobatically it was superb!But we weren't able to watch the whole show because of the costumes (or lack of) so in parts we kept our heads down and eyes closed. But honestly, I suppose that for Las Vegas it was pretty mild. And we really did have a great time!

This trip we stayed at the MGM Grand. Last time we stayed at the Paris across from the Bellagio and loved it. I have to say that the whole MGM experience was just so much fun. JD spent most of his time in meetings so I enjoyed the shoe shop, spa and walking around the hotel exploring. I love how going to Las Vegas transports you from a normal world to something completely eccentric and a little overwhelming. There are so many ways to waste money so I get a little anxious there. I don't like to waste money, and if I spend money I want to make sure I am getting more than the value I spent, so I usually shop sales, etc. And I don't like to gamble, so Las Vegas is really out of my element, but there are some times you just have to loosen the strings and have a little fun. And we did!

 I was hoping to have some photos to share, but realized that I didn't actually take any! I can't believe that.... :(
