Hello again!

This has been such great fun, updating you guys on everything!  So, as promised, in this post I will talk about my Honeymoon to Vegas.  It was awesome!

There we go!  We stayed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel which is wedged between all the big name hotels in Vegas, right on the strip.  Our next door neighbors were the Bellagio and Aria and across the street was Paris Paris.  At night we sat on the balcony and watched the water show that takes place in front of the Bellagio.

We pretty much did a little bit of everything in Vegas, from walking the entire length of the strip (from the Welcome to Vegas sign all the way to the Stratosphere), gambling, see shows, and partaking in the buffets!

Food!

Food!

Bigger food...

Bigger food…

We even walked down to the old part of Vegas and stopped by the Heart Attack Grill.

I'll take the one that is absolutely impossible to eat please!

When you arrive at the Heart Attack grill, you have the option to weigh yourself and if you are over 300 lbs then you eat free.  Even Patrick and I together did not weight that much!  As you walk in the door you are greeted by either a slutty nurse or a doctor who is respectably dressed.  They put you into a hospital gown, most likely for the oncoming slaughter of burgers and fries, and then you are issued a hospital name band.

This was taken before we ate, thank god for that.

After our food coma subsided, we headed out around this old part of Vegas.  We were told that the Neon Boneyard was a pretty cool place to check out.  It is exactly that.  Where all the old signs of Vegas go to die.

So yea, we walked around the Neon Boneyard for quite some time because it was just absolutely fascinating.

Oh and we also drank and gambled too…

Saw a lot of this...

We only saw one Elvis, sadly, and when we tried to go renew our vows and get married again in Vegas it was disappointingly EXPENSIVE!  How do drunk people manage to get married in Vegas, like, all the freakin’ time!?  It was a pain in the ass for us to manage it, and we were already married AND sober!

Oh, funny story…so we wanted to get a picture of the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign but when we walked up to it we saw that there was a line to wait in to get your picture taken in front of it.  WHAT?  STUPID?  So what did we do?

Stand behind the sign to capture the equally famous "Drive Carefully" sign...Welcome to Vegas's frowned upon brother...

Or stand to the side and annoy all those tourists who just stood in line for 20 minutes looking like fools...

All in all, it was the best time of our lives and Patrick asks me often, “When do you think we will go back?”

I hope someday soon, because it was AWESOME!

Until next time…
