vegas baby

this past weekend my mom, nicky and i went to las vegas to see neil diamond. that's right, neil diamond. my mom got me tickets for my birthday and let me tell ya, it was a great show! he played all the hits and even this song which i was delighted to hear live. we were there for one night (which is the perfect amount of time to be in vegas as far as i'm concerned) and we packed in as much fun, sun, drinks and laughs as we could. thank you so much ma, it was a blast!
this next picture is my favorite. yes, that's nicky and i lying as flat as we could while driving through vegas in the back of my mom's cousin's truck. you know this is illegal right? maybe that's why it was so fun :D i have not laughed as hard as i did that night in a long time.
on the way home we saw a huge fire and listened to the top 30 hits from labor day 1990 on XM radio. i think this song was highlight. wait, maybe it was this one or this one. man, 1990 ruled! i'm actually embarrassed that i just linked those songs to my blog, but hey, trying to keep real people. and i'm not going to pretend that i didn't sing along to them all. i did. still know every word.

how was your labor day?

  2. anne, Neil Diamond!! Wow!! How amazing.. I can tell from the pictures that it was a blast. :) fun, fun.. Riding in the pickup looks too fun. :) That was so precious of your mom to do that for the three of you.. Ya'll will always have such sweet memories of that night. The pictures are so good. I love the big smiles.. The pic of Nicky in the window is really cool. It has such a 60's vibe to it. So happy for you all to get a great opportunity like that.. :) janet

  12. HAHAHAHA! So glad you were a bit naughty! Bet you giggled your butts off. I would've. Last girls night I had was last year for a concert, when we got back to our unit the whole place was locked up. We had to scale a gate to get in, and my short friend got stuck on the top of the gate. I almost pee-ed myself laughing. Hooray for friends! xoxo
