Scenes from my weekend - Las Vegas



Quick tabata circuit






The Space Shuttle Enterprise arrived in NYC on Friday and is hanging out in a hangar at JFK

A quick 36 hour trip to Las Vegas for much needed girls' weekend with my sister, cousin and good friend. The other reason we traveled to Vegas - to see Jon Bon Jovi play Tiger Jams, a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

We arrived Saturday morning. The sun was warm and skies blue. We lunched by the pool and had a massage. We watched movies in our room and chatted, catching up on life. My sister insisted on working out so we came up with a quick tabata circuit to spike her heart rate. It was kind of fun sitting on the couch yelling out the time intervals while she sweated her way through the exercises.

I have mentioned before that I have been a Bon Jovi fan for pretty much my entire life. His music and songs bring back memories of fifth grade field trips and dances in the school cafeteria when Slippery When Wet topped the charts. His music appears again in my life's soundtrack during high school and a summer spent doing a community service project far from home. While the concert wasn't a typical Bon Jovi show (it was just Jon and a back-up band), it was great fun to rock out and watch Jon dance around on stage and do what he does best.

No, we didn't leave the hotel during the 36 hours that we were there. There was no gambling or over-indulging in food and drink. There really wasn't any reason too. It was perfect just to spend time in the company of these women in my life.

It was so well worth it and I'm glad that we all were able to get away. I'm so glad that you are feeling better. Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

What a great weekend! Glad you had a wonderful time and spoilt yourself a bit. We all need that from time to time, and you look like you are having a ball! I have been to Vegas and was totally fascinated by the buildings, the lights and the whole experience!
For your next break away, are you planning on any surfing experiences? Things are probably starting to get a bit warmer for you as well (because they are starting to get a bit chilly over here!). I have been out in the water a bit and have been catching some good waves on my longboard. I am practicing paddling on at an angle now so that I can go across the wave and not straight.
Stay well and glad the recovery is going well, Bron

Aw, nice!!! Nothing like a quick getaway to rejuvenate.

I saw Jon Bon Jovi perform when I was 18 - it was awesome. HE was awesome.

That pretty much sums it up - Bon Jovi is awesome. However, I don't think that my hair was big enough for the show.

Thanks Bron! It was a very fun weekend and nice to get away, even if it was only for 36 hours! Vegas is definitely an experience like no other. It was warm here but it's turned cold again. I know that my husband is itching to get in the water here but we aren't really planning any surfing vacations. We'll probably head out to Long Island sometime this summer.

Good for you for practicing your angled take-offs! So much fun to go across the face of the wave vs. straight into the beach.

Thanks! Definitely a much needed little break.
