Vegas Virgin

Yes, you read that right. I’m a Vegas virgin.

And yes, I know you’re ultra confused how a gal who loves any and all things gaudy, sequined, shiny, fuchsia, leopard, sparkly (you get the picture) could have lived a life thus far without visiting my potential mothership of a city. Well, wonder no more because I’ll be gracing Vegas with my prescence later this afternoon!

The hardest part about preparing to travel to Las Vegas was deciding which pieces of my always flamboyant wardrobe would be accompanying me.

How much gaudy is too much?

How much gaudy is too much?

Good thing I have my trusty sidekick, Ted, who helped me narrow down my sequins.

Good thing I have my trusty side kick to help me narrow down my sequins.

He leaned toward the pink. Surprised?

But Tedstar was beyond disgusted to see that I was packing my Aunt Nancy’s 1960s white mini dress – you know, just in case I meet Mr. Right Now and decide to get hitched after knowing someone all of one day in Vegas (I mean, it can happen, right?).

Disgusted to see I was packing a white dress "just in case" I meet Mr. Right Now and decide to get hitched Vegas style.

Mr. Bear was so disgusted, he refused to move off of the white garment.

Then the little love of my life laid down on my wedding mini, staking his claim by rubbing his scent and dark fur all over the place.

So he laid down on my wedding mini, staking his claim.

She’s MINE.

Of course after all of 14 minutes of helping me choose attire and throwing a tantrum over non-existent wedding bells, Teddy was exhausted.

And then surrendered to sleep, as he was exhausted after three minutes of helping me pack.

Surrendered to sleep.

Keep your fingers crossed that all of my bling makes it through airport security and that I don’t bring a Mr. CBXB back to Nashville with me.

Look out Vegas, here I come!

    Have FUN!!!
    beware of those men on the sidewalks handing out porn cards….seriously, they piss me off…… they are totally in your face and just watch who they give them to…..families with little kids in tow.

  2. Beware of corners period!
    I turned a corner off an escalator and walked right into a FUR DRESSED PIMP! BLAZING BLUE TOP HAT AND SUNGLASSES. no lie.
    I was not sure if I wanted to walk AROUND him ….or work for him. it could work , ya know. They like sparkle…be aware. AND for God’s sake, drink up…I mean responsibly.

    We will be waiting for the all clear sign…when you are sober. Saturday maybe?

    • Sober Saturday is not in my future. Sunday, maybe. Just maybe there will be an all clear!

      As for the pimp in the blue top hat and sunglasses – hello! I think I may have asked him to call me. Kinda gross but so tempting…I mean, he was in a blue top hat for Godsake!

  3. Have a fab time! But I agree with Ted, your all his! No shotgun weddings! hehe! =^.^=

  4. Have fun! I’ve only been there once myself. I slept on a park bench until some cop told us we couldn’t sleep on the park benches…whatever! The only reason not to have a shotgun wedding is because a more traditional one will have a kickass open bar! Do that! THe open bar one.

    Yay!!! How exciting for you! I think everyone should visit Vegas at least once in their life–there is just so much to take in! Make sure to take plenty of pictures and have fun! πŸ™‚

  6. Have you sufficiently warned them? It would only be fair…

  7. Love Vegas!!! Eat fabulous, go to at least one nightclub event hosted by a celeb, and put a few chips all on 27. All that advice has always worked for me! πŸ˜‰

    • Loved the advice! I did eat fabulously, I went to a pool part at the Hard Rock Casino hosted by R. Kelly (and the endless people watching could have kept me entertained for the rest of my life) and I watched a friend win $7,500 on the penny slot machines!

    If you do end up getting hitched make sure it is officiated by an Elvis.
    That’s the only way to get married in Vegas.

  9. Nancy says:

    Have a fabulous time! I am soon to follow.

  10. OMG! Hard to believe you’ve never been to Vegas. Hubby’s family has a tradition that everyone goes when someone turns 21…that included me. I had a blast…fell in love with craps. My bio-father actually lives out there, but I don’t really go to visit him. Trips to the Vegas are all for me.

    Love Love Love VEGAS! It’s my favorite place to party at. Been there many times. Make sure you take a bunch of porn cards, or as I call them “Slapper Cards”. You’ll see. They are great to throw around at parties and embarrass your friends!

    Dress wild, have fun, party hard! Remember, what happens in Vegas….

    • Oh boy…Vegas is now my favorite place to party, too! My hands are shaking as I type this comment (I’d like to say from lack of sleep but I think I’m in major alcohol DT)…I didn’t collect too many Slapper Cards this time around, so I’ll start my collection during my next trip. And there will be a next trip!! πŸ™‚

  14. I know you’ll have a fab time so looking forward to seeing the pics; Tedstar has nothing to worry he’ll ALWAYS be your best boy

  15. Ms B. BAD says:

    Based on IG photo updates I know you are having fun! Cant wait to read more about your trip!

  16. Aaawww! Ted is so adorable; he doesn’t want mommy to go.

    • He didn’t want me to go and typically is such a baby when I return – you know, ignoring me in cat fashion, making me ‘pay’ for being gone. But he was a stage 1 clinger when I got home last night (which made this mama one happy lady!).

  17. John says:

    I suppose your back home by now? Hope you had fun down on the Strip. We don’t go there but once a month for an eve drive. Hey, my admin panel somehow got a radio box ticked that stopped updates being delivered to me from my blog buddies. Sucks! Was wondering what the heck happened. Don’t do anything naughty down there… πŸ˜‰

  18. Not nearly enough sequins fyi!
    Although I have a sneaking suspicion (holy parental flashback phrase) that you dressed the part just fine!!!
    DYING for stories….

  19. FreeUrCloset says:

    Haha, we seriously expect to see one of those ‘creepy Ted waiting by the door, as you try to sneak back into your house’ pic … or are you saving that for Halloween? LMAO! So glad you got a chance to visit one of our favorite cities! Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    XOXO Nensi & Natasha

Holla at me!
