Reason #86 why my roommate rocks...

Our Saturday morning conversation went something like this...

Me: Man, I really need a vacation.

Lisa: I know - me too.

Me: I think we should take a roadtrip...soon...before I start school.

Lisa: Well, I don't have anything to do next week....

Me:.....wanna go somewhere?

Lisa: Sure, why not.

The next couple of hours we looked at different options. Flying to California, taking the train to San Fransisco, Denver, flights to Boston, New York. Even looking at last minute cruise deals. We considered St. George - it's close and there's a possible free place to stay. But we decided on the city that never sleeps...Vegas. Lisa's cousin hooked us up with a major sweet deal on a nice hotel right off the strip. We're toying with the idea of renting a car (my car isn't that comfortable on long trips) and possibly going to see Lion King while we're there. We'll do a little shopping, touristy sight seeing and pool lounging...possibly. It's supposed to be low 60's and our hotel has a heated outdoor pool.

Yeah...I know. My roommate rocks.

Agreed. I think you both rock. And after reading your FB status (I'm a bit of a stalker, maybe?) and this blog post, I know exactly which hotel you're talking about...it is awesome. Be sure to do some H&M shopping for me. And maybe Thunder from Down Under... ;)

Would it be obnoxious to ask if Lisa's cousin could hook us up with a deal in St. George? Kidding. Sort of.

Have fun!

Have fun! I wish I could drive to Vegas- I think I'd go most every weekend. man, i love that place. Go get some LuvIt's Frozen Custard for me- it's acorss LV Blvd from the Stratosphere, next to a huge strip club called Olympic Gardens. It's kind of hidden, but trust me, it's SO worth finding. (Oh, and hey- be careful over by the convention center. You'll be fine in your hotel, but that's a sketchy neighborhood. Actually, pretty much all of downtown, the strip and surrounding areas are sketchy, so just always be careful!)

across, not acorss. And in hindsight, OG's isn't actually so big. But big enough to be a landmark to help you find LuvIt's.
