A Very happy Vegas V-day


Have I mentioned how much I hate having Jason travel? Ignore that because after this week I may have changed my mind. He's been in Vegas working for the past several weeks and my dad came out for a visit (more on that later), so I was so nice to dump the kids on him as soon as he got here and jet off to Vegas with Jason in the name of Valentines Day. He really is an amazing "Papa", not only was he nice enough to watch the kids but he was genuinely excited about it (so were the kids) AND the house was sparkling clean when we got back. How many grandpa's do that?? Thanks so much, Dad, it was so nice to get away and not stress about the kids. As soon as I flew in Jason whisked me away in a convertible (we felt 10 years younger, but probably didn't look nearly as cool as we felt) to our beautiful high rise suite overlooking the strip before making our dinner reservations then off to a show. So romantic, so fun and so spoiled. We go to Vegas all the time but we've never been to a real show so I thought it was time we splurged. We went to the Cirque de Solei show, "Ka" and it was such a dissappointment. Maybe I would have liked it more if we hadn't spent $150 on the tickets. It was too artsy fartsy and I kept bouncing my leg and wiggling in my seat just to stay awake. Afterwards we were both so tired and it was freezing outside, but we just had to take a drive in the convertible, cause how often are we in Vegas without kids in a convertible? The next morning we ordered room service and dined on white chocolate and raspberry french toast in our bath robes. Dreamy, I know. Then Jason was off to work and I was off to bed for another 2 hours, waking up just in time to get ready and meet up with Jason and his sister for lunch. The only thing I had on my agenda after that was shopping, and lots of it. Four hours of shopping without kids just flys by. It was the perfect little getaway, thanks Jay for letting me tag along on your business trip :). It was so fun spending time together and pretending like we lived the high life. We've been together for like 11 Valentine's Days and this was by far my favorite. Happy Valentine's Day Jay, I love you! (Oh yeah, and I chopped my hair. It was so fun having the extensions, but after 2 years the new old Jamie is back).

I alwasy love it when I check my email and find it full of blog comments from you. Not only do I get a bunch of sweet comments, but I know that you're back in blogging action. Thanks for sharing your Vegas trip. It sounds like the perfect get away. You two are so young (Young, get it? Young in an age way too:), cute and in love. I LOVE it! As I read through your post I just kept thinking, "Poor Jason, he has to live like this all the time." Okay, so maybe he doesn't eat white chocolate french toast in his bathrobe (who knows?) but those business trips can't be all that bad. I'm glad you got such a wonderful, well deserved break. You couldn't have found a better babysitter either. I can't wait to hear more! Love you!

Me again! I just realized that I forgot to tell you how cute your hair is. What a cute trendy sister I have! I keep picturing you with long hair. Now that I have a visual on you I think I've got the right picture in my head. Love it!

You went to Vegas and didn't tell us!! We could have had lunch together! Ok, nevermind, you were with your honey on a romantic weekend! It sounds like you had fun! Except the 'Ka" part...next time you want to see a show, let a local (hint hint ;)) tell you what to see, and if I (I mean they) can hook you up with sweet locals deals! Your hair is adorable! We miss you guys!

sleeping in and shopping for 4 hours (with money) = dream come true.
