After eating we walked around Deep Ellum and hung out on the rooftop of one of the bars. It was hot and sticky outside, so we didn't stay long. But Amber took these awesome pictures with her phone while we were there.
Today I worked and it was pretty busy. During calls I worked on my crocheting. I'm becoming quite the master ;) Hopefully these little squares will turn into a super cute blanket for someone special.
Speaking of someone special, I want to share these adorable pictures of my nieces. Aren't they the cutest?!
Here is Willa with her BFF Audrey
I'm so excited because I get to see them tomorrow. I'm looking forward to swimming and hanging out with my friends.
Now I will leave you with a random picture. I've killed most of my plants this year, and I figured this one was dying a slow death. Out of nowhere these blooms popped up and only lasted for a couple of days.

Then we walked around looking for souvenirs to take back home. I saw this beautiful dress in one of the stores. I wanted it so bad!
We had seen an In and Out Burger when we took the shuttle to our hotel on the first day. It wasn't on the strip, so we debated on taking a taxi there. Finally we decided to go to see what the fuss was about.
The food was ok. It wasn't as great as I had expected. But I'm glad we went regardless.
After lunch we went back to the hotel to gamble. I sat down at a Sex in the City slot machine and put in $5. I ended up getting up to $71. When I got down to $50 I cashed out. But I thought that was pretty amazing considering I only had $5.
Later we had to catch the shuttle to the airport and check in. We got through security pretty fast so we ate at California Pizza Chicken while we waited to board. Then we got a giant cinnamon roll to take on the plane :) We didn't get back to Dallas until about 11:30pm. Needless to say I was exhausted. I spent all day Monday sleeping. I felt like I needed another vacation to recover from this one!
After lunch we went back to the room to get ready for the weeding. Of course, we were late! I thought it would take about 30 minutes to get to the hotel that the wedding was at. But then we were running behind. And we had to walk through an entire hotel to get to the monorail. If you have never been to Vegas, let me just tell you that those hotels are freaking huge! So that probably took the longest. Then we had to catch the monorail. Once we got off, we ran around like crazy trying to find the chapel. Luckily we made it just in time. As the music was playing we ran in, changed shoes, and threw on our headbands.

After the wedding we went back to Kristin and Tom's suit to have cake and visit.
Here we are catching the monorail.
Later me, Amber, Stacey and Kyle went out for Mexican food. Then we walked down the strip.

We were so tired when we got back to the hotel room so we just passed out. That seemed to be the theme while on vacation :)
