When Tammy and I realized we would be visiting Vegas only one week apart we thought it would be fun to both share our stories on her blog. I can't speak for Tam, but I personally had an amazing time on my trip. It was my first trip to Vegas and one of the funnest weekends of my life. There are so many things to say and so many pictures to share that I don't know how to fit it all in, but I'll try.
Ned's is a bookstore in Berkeley where I worked in college and where Miguel and I first met. We had so many amazing friends and memories there that when our friend J.R. suggested a reunion in Vegas over his birthday weekend we jumped at the chance. Lucky for all of us, J.R.'s parents have retired to Vegas recently and they helped to make our trip unforgettable. We got to our suite on Thursday night to find it fully stocked:
Once Jeanette arrived, having narrowly escaped a NY blizzard, we finally got to open our surprise... matching onesies!!!
By this point we were anxious to see the sights and hit the strip at about 1am.

After playing some slots and enjoying an early morning meal, we returned to the room to relax in the onesies:

The next morning was J.R.'s birthday and his parents brought over a huge Phillipino lunch with enough left overs to last the weekend and then some.

We couldn't stay in pajamas forever, so that night we got dressed up to hit the town.

And got our groove on...
