It's hard to imagine a bigger desert oasis than Las Vegas.
Cinnamon Stomberger

A few weeks ago I headed to Las Vegas. Not for a crazy time, but to host a baby shower! Ashley is due in June so I took advantage of being able to see her for a bit before Logan arrives and host a celebration in her honor. I stayed with her and her husband for three nights and then Melissa flew in and we stayed in a hotel for another three. It was the perfect getaway - a mix of friends, their family, relaxation and fun times!

Here are some cute photos of our great week together!

An exciting Wednesday night in Las Vegas - laptops, pups and Conan!

Updating her registry and parking in the special spot!

On Thursday night we headed to The Mirage to see "Love" - it was wonderful!

Melissa arrived on Friday and we headed out to explore The Strip.

The Paris hotel at night.

Headed to The Palms for the Britney Spears special concert,
it was announced that morning and we made it work!

Waiting for Britney to take the stage.

The guest DJ was Pauly D from Jersey Shore.

He was really good and very, very tan!

She put on a great show, her back up dancers were amazing!

One Saturday I hosted Ashley's baby shower at the home of RaeAnna's sister.

The theme was bees with yellow and black and white gingham.

Ashley's dog, Paisley, was the bee greeter!

Lots of generous gifts.



Big spread of great food.

With the mama-to-"bee"

Opening gifts.

With my dear college friends!

Out to dinner at our hotel on Saturday night.

My very first big Vegas buffet on Sunday morning.

Melissa and I then headed to The Strip to explore.

Our favorite spot to see each time we are there is Bellagio's Conservatory that is updated every season. Beautiful, beautiful!

This time the theme was a fantasy garden with a Ferris wheel, big butterflies and bright colors.

Watching the fountains in front of Bellagio.

Our last stop were the Lions at MGM - so sweet!
