The Mom that Didn't Sleep

Wow.

What a whirlwind of a trip.

48 hours.

I'm exhausted.

Vegas was FUN.

Not just fun, fun. But, AH-MAZING Fun!

The best kind right?

I've got tons of photos to edit and post.

Tons of smokey laundry to wash.

Lots of skin to moisturize (man Vegas is a desert isn't it?).

Ellen was spectacular. I was star-struck the minute I stepped into the Colosseum and saw the stage set up for her show. (Show airs Monday)

When she rose from the floor and stood there waving and dancing, I was just in awe.

She was everything in person that you could expect; funny, talented, and gorgeous!

Bette Midler, who is performing her stage show at Caesars, was one of her guests.

As was singer, PINK!!! She is hot, so adorable, and a fabulous performer!!

Magician Hans Vlok or Blok, or VLOGGGUUUCCHHH (no i didn't just clear my throat) was also there. Think Fabio, with shorter hair, fan blowing at him like he's trapped in a windstorm, and making stuff disappear!

We danced for 3 hours straight, and me in my heels....oh my aching feet.

Check back in a few days for some more, i'll have my pics uploaded by then.

Sunday is catch up on sleep day.

Do you know you aren't allowed to sleep in Vegas, it's a rule. I think it's because your judgement is clouded by casino smoke and 3 feet tall drink-glasses(the ones with the strap around your neck) full of liquidy deliciousness.

And, when you're under that influence you make poor decisions like going "all in" with a two of hearts and a 9 of spades, start pole dancing at the sports bar, or when you buy a sculpture of the Statue of Liberty in the New York, New York gift shop for $3200.

Yeah, they like when you don't sleep.
