We're so money

Thursday night -- we NEEDED champagne to celebrate that we're all in Vegas together!!
Beth, me, and Kendra in one of the Cabs o' Creepiness on our way to The Palms on Friday night. At least this driver was just silent and surly and not the sex-game peddler or the commenting-on-my-breasts guy. Hottest Girls in Vegas on the roof of The Palms -- also known as the patio at Ghost Bar. In case you were wondering, the HGinV are Beth, Becki, me, Kendra and Karen. Who knew when we met that 15 years later we'd be in Sin City celebrating our third decade. Awesome. Taking a break from dancing at Rain (also at The Palms). Reason I look sort of intense and/or evil? Unknown.
My look of horror as we watch the train wreck behind us. As P.I.C. is fond of saying: "That's a LadyMan, man!" The guy he/she is macking on has no clue and they started making out seconds later. I seriously couldn't stop watching.
The restaurant by the pool. Just call me Ms. New Booty. That's just one of the many boot-related jokes from the weekend.
Beth and I -- we've been friends for 24 years. Love her. Anyway. We're standing outside the Bellagio on Saturday night waiting for the water show to start. Random fact #1: she was responsible for my hairstyles both nights. I liked them so much that I am now blaming her for the $100 in Bumble & Bumble products I bought when I got home. But my hair looks fabulous. You know, for when I'm home all the time. Random fact #2: We used to write each other's name on our homework because we knew we'd get the same grade anyway. Geeks, party of two?
So that's it. For now. Karen took some great pictures, don't you think?

I DO think! You look gorgeous in all these photos!!!! And I'm in love with the one of you in the boot - just classic!

Janet said...

Yes! I have a good friend who always has a camera as well... a habit borne of yearbook editing. But your photos are amazing! I'm loving the hair and all the smiles.

Mis bootie.

How do you ladies handle all that hotness?

You walked around breaking hearts! If a man comes up to you in LoDo some night this summer and says he reads your blog
it's me! If you say "Thank you" I'll throw in a free martini. ;)

Peace

Okie said...

I, for one, find that intense/evil look very sexy.

Sandra Dee said...

Aww. Aren't y'all just the cutest?!

dasi said...

Awesome pics!! I'm so glad you guys had such a good time. Vegas will never be the same, I'm sure!!

Jill said...

The intense/evil look: I would actually call it "smoldering and seductive".

Bumble and Bumble is FANTASTIC, as is your hair. Those products--totally responsible for the relatively flattering shots of me from TequilaCon floating about the internet. Go Beth!

Hope said...

Ha! I LOVE the pic of you with the she-man. That's hilarious!

Whinger said...

Yay for Bumble & Bumble. And when you buy it, you can't look at the price. You have to just move on.

Also, that was SO not a man. There is no Adam's Apple, the Giveaway of Drag Queens.

Cheryl said...

Awesome pictures. And your hair is gorgeous so the money was well-spent.

Kendra said...

I still contend that it WAS a man. That back was far too muscular and the hands were made for stubborn pickle jar opening.

Karen said...

It was a woman. She was clearly not pretty enough or glammed out enough to be a drag queen. She just has the misfortune of being a SheMan.
Love, love, love Bumble and Bumble. Although expensive, the products last a long time.

Amber said...

LadyMan. It was clearly a man. Dressed as a lady. A real ugly, man postured, man-handed, bad taste in lady clothes MAN.

ShyRocket said...

Whooosh, you are beautiful and v v gorgeous. Your profile pic doesnt do you justice!

ShyRocket said...

I agree with Jill but would add... "DEEP & smouldering and seductive!!!"

Kiki said...

You guys look like you're having soooooo much fun!!! Have one for me!

Alice said...

I now know what "mannish" means. . . still not sure if "she" was a boy or girl yet. Leaning towards girl though. But mannish.
The look is like you just told some hot guy you were about to do something naughty to him and he called you on it. Ok, so now what was the naughty thing you did?
Now I have have that song stuck in my head. . . . . booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, boo!

Mr. Fabulous said...

That look that you called evil/intense?

Hottest. Look. Ever.

Jon said...

Nice pack of hot women. I'll bet the guys were swarming.

All those teeth showing... GAWGIOUS!

beckibee said...

I'm with Beth, it was a woman. She was just ugly.

Kyahgirl said...

Rico said...

Two thumbs up all around for those pictures! Welcome home, why you came back, we'll never know.

Shirazi said...

Happy and beautiful.
