What a trip!

ok. I would be blogging for days if I went into details of our trip to Vegas, but some key words come to mind: relaxing, rekindling, incredible, fun, warm, satisfying, fulfilling, belly-filling, enlightening and many more...
We had an absolutely incredible time! We ate, we drank, we shopped, we laughed, we roller-coasted, we Cirque'd, we dammed, (ha... toured the Hoover Dam), we jacuzzied, we slept etc. Here are some photos:

There is lots and lots more, but here are a few highlights.

Vegas Baby

Well... Vegas is here. I booked this trip for Cam and I way back in August and now, we leave tomorrow! I am so excited and so nervous all at the same time! I haven't been away from Isla very much and this certainly will be the longest amount of time we have been separated. I know she will be in great hands (some time with Momo, Nana & Popi and Auntie Nicole & Uncle Chris), but I just don't want her to be a nightmare. Haha. Alas, this trip is about Cam & I having some very much needed, well deserved, greatly anticipated alone time to talk, sleep, eat and love. It really will be amazing. I will limit my Isla thoughts to 2 per day. BAAAHAAA. Yea right.
Well, talk soon everyone!

11 Months

Isla is 11 months old today. Wow. She is so big. I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone... I think I say that every month, but it's 100% true. I feel as though I blinked and here she is: crawling, laughing, trying to stand all by herself, dancing, waving, kissing etc... it's just amazing. She has brought so so so much enjoyment to our lives and she becomes more fun every day. She has quite the little personality... always wanting to be around the action. She is a lot like me in that sense. She continues to look exactly like Cam but every now and then, I see a little me in her. The biggest thing this month is trying to stand... and SLOWLY trying to walk. We walks across furniture all the time and loves to walk with us... so maybe soon?? I can't say I am too eager for that to begin. Needless to say, she simply rocks our world.

There. A little dose of Isla....

Birthday Karaoke

This Friday, December 10th is my 26th Birthday (seriously, when did I get old?). But, alas, I won't be here to celebrate... I will be celebrating in VEGAS sans the baby with my amazing husband! Needless to say, I wanted to do a little something with my girlfriends... so we decided upon Karaoke. Thanks to my amazing sister in law Nicole for planning such an epic event. With a few close girlfriends, we ate and sang the night away with some amazing renditions of hits, such as: "Push It" by Salt-n-Peppa, "Big Butts" by Sir Mix a Lot, "Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover" by Sophie B. Hawkins, "Summer Lovin'" by the cast of Grease, "You Were Meant For Me" by... I dunno and others. Needless to say, it was a really fun evening filled with lots of laughs and lots of terrible singing. Haha. Here are some photos.

What birthday par-tay is not complete with out a birthday shot...

My gorgeous friends: Jennifer and Nicole (also my amazing sister in law)

I'm Alive

Just a post to let you know that indeed, I am alive and have not fallen off the face of the planet. Woh... life can get really busy really fast. But I am back.
