Madyn before bed with one of his souvenirs :-)

This weekend we went to vegas. It was my first time there and I was really excited about it. We stayed at PH towers at westgate on the 24th floor, room 2430. We made it to vegas by noon, and got showered and ready for the day. The room was really nice. It was a 1 bedroom suite and included a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. It was amazing. The view was a "pool view." In the bedroom it had a jucuzzi tub right beside the bed. On Saturday we started out by going over to the cosmopolitan for lunch. We ate at holsteins. I had a hamburger and steak fries.

I loved how the fries came in the little bucket. The burger was delicious as were the fries!


After lunch we walked around the casino at the Cosmopolitan and gambled a little bit. The first slot machine I played was a goldfish game. I did not win at all on this game. We continued to walk and gamble for a little while. Then we moved on and continued down the strip. We were enjoying the beautiful weather. The only thing I wasn't enjoying were those people that were on every street corner that flipped out prostitutes cards with pictures of nude girls along with phone numbers. I avoided making eye contact with every single one of them, yet they'd just stick their flyers/cards right in your face regardless. The evening continued and eventually we met up with Brandon's brother and his fiance along with one of her friends. They were staying at the luxor. On the way to the luxor I encountered my first moving sidewalk. It was thoroughly amusing. We played a few games while were waiting for Chris, lindsey & Lindsay. After they got there they got checked in, we went and saw their room and then went back down to the casino while the girls changed/got ready. Then we went to get them some food. We stopped and waited on them outside on the strip. There were people dressed in many, many different character costumes such as buzz/woody. While we were waiting we took a picture together.

It was so nice to be with him as myself and not a mom for 3 days.

After they got their food we all went up to our room and hung out and relaxed after an afternoon full of walking around our legs and feet thanked us. We then went back out and gambled at various casino's. Brandon won $135 from gambling at a game we had no idea how it worked. It was nice and helped bring us back even to what we started the day with. After that we decided to call it a night and head back up to the room.

I decided I wanted to try out our jacuzzi tub. It took forever to fill up and was loud draining but it felt AMAZING to me.  I was completely relaxed and slept all night once I finally hit the bed. However I woke up at 6:30ish which is not normal. I attributed it to my anxiety. I was just wanting to keep going constantly.

Sunday morning we woke up and got showered & dressed then we hit the strip. After breakfast we had played a slot machine and won $35.00 which pretty much paid for breakfast minus $6. (Breakfast buffet was $41 total for the two of us). That morning we learned how to play craps. It was a lot of information but I loved seeing the guy explain it. It took about an hour but it flew by fast and I pretty much understood everything he had to say. It seems like a fun game to play and hopefully next time we're in vegas we'll be able to play! We also went up the eifell tower that morning. The view from the top of the tower was amazing. It was beautiful weather too. Nice and cool. After the eifell tower we continued walking around. That day we came back to the hotel room around 5:30 and I took a bath and then napped. We went back out at around 7:30 or 8ish that night. We wanted to go to dinner and see the sirens show at Treasure Island, but because we had wanted to wait for his brother and his brother was taking a little longer than expected we didn't make the sirens show. Dinner was delicious. We dined at "Gilley's" right by treasure Island. It was delicious. I had a hamburger and their regular fries. They were really busy, and the waitress had way too many tables so unfortunately brandon didn't get a refill or offered a refill til we were already done and about to leave.

Monday was a relaxing day and a day we used to get our souviners. Overall I really really enjoyed this vacation and can't wait to go back! There's still LOTS that we didn't get to do this time that I will want to do next time.

Last day in vegas and I was relaxing beside the bed in the awesome zebra print chair. I loved it and I know my sister would too if she had seen it!

Even though I was sad the vacation flew by this weekend, it was nice to be home with my sweet little man!


On Sunday we went up to the eifell tower and I was able to take pictures of the view. It's SO amazing to see everything from the top. The eifell tower is so cool, now I really want to see the real thing one day. While I marked one thing off my bucket list this weekend I also added one more.

Sunday was so much fun, but my knee started hurting that day and I'm only assuming it was due to all the walking we did. I really really enjoyed my vacation to vegas!


Sorry I'm late on posting these latest pictures, I just returned from our vacation to Las Vegas. It was my first time and I didn't want to miss anything so I decided I'd just post them when I got home.



First night in Vegas. We were waiting on brandon's brother/fiance and Brandon's cousin to meet us after they got their drinks and food before returning to our room for dinner. This is probably my personal favorite of us from the weekend, but there are others from the weekend I love too.

I think I made it farther this year then I did last year!! Yay me!

Here's yesterday's picture I was too tired to post.

Last night madyn was in another "lets take pictures with mommy" mood so that's what we did. We took several pictures but this one was my favorite. I had no idea he had shut his eyes. It was sweet. :)

Lookie what Brandon made! :) It's a sturdy toy organizer! Madyn's old one that came with the bins was just old and falling apart so Brandon made him a new one. :) I love it!

Excuse my lack of creativeness for today. I worked 9:45-5 then had to get shoes for my vegas trip and we went grocery shopping after that, so by the time I got home my natural daylight was gone. :( I hate using the flash on the camera, everything turns out WAY to bright and untrue to the color so forgive me. :)

Without further ado picture number 78 out of 365!

Our newest candle in our home. It smells amazing. I love it! and then our first family picture in the background. Madyn was approximately 15 months in that picture. :)

So my days are off by 1, but I promise I've been taking pictures every single day. I just miscounted somewhere last month. lol.

Today (Friday March 18, 2011) is day 77/365

My amazing son. He's SO full of personality. Every single minute its another facial expression. Oh man. I just noticed I used the same picture twice. lol. Oh well! :) I <3 that picture! ;)

I was taking pictures of my mr man today as usual. When I looked at this picture it instantly reminded me I've taken a picture similar to it before. So I went through my old pictures and found the one on the left. He was barely 2 years old in the picture on the left. Today he's so close to being 5! He's still got the same expression, only now his face is a lot less round. He definitely is not a baby anymore, as these pictures helped point out. His hair is a lot darker now then it started out. And it's thicker too (much to my surprise). Oh how I love him!


My son is a ninja. He did this without me knowing lol.

Snack time. I love touch of color. I can't help it. Some photographers aren't into it anymore and some define doing touch of color as a "newbie" skill. I however love it regardless.

This is the second room of our apartment. We had originally picked out apples for the theme, but after our trip to Disneyland the last time we incorporated mickey mouse. :) We also have mickey mouse wisk, pizza cutter and salt and pepper shaker (pictured above).

I love our theme kitchen, just wish it was bigger! There's hardly enough room for both of us to be in it! I need a BIG kitchen!

I had originally planned on doing a collage with all of the rooms of our house but it didn't happen today. So i'll aim for at least one room a night until I photograph every part of my house. :)

Tonight its Madyn's room.

Oh how I love my son. He truely is my life. He randomly sat on my lap tonight and said "mommy lets take pictures together" The only camera I had on hand was my cell phone one, but it did the job! We had a great day playing with play-doh, coloring, and playing candyland. Then I cuddled with him before his nap. I love my days off. Especially when they end like tonight did.
