November 17 I completely overbooked myself.
My cousin came in from San Francisco and her plane was delayed. Then off we went immediately to the boys’ MMA class.
When we got there they had the parents participate- Both boys didn’t want to fight me! Samuel said he doesn’t fight girls and Aram just wanted to be mister independent. He kept saying, “mom, just go…”
Samuel found a dad to partner with, and I reluctantly left Aram. John McCarthy came over and I was joking about how Aram didn’t want anything to do with me helping. He goes, “Well I’ll be his partner for the class!” He jumped in and participated in the entire class with Aram. What a cool guy….
When the class was over we raced back to our neck of the woods. Dropped the kids off with Mali, and ran off to the Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy event. Rolls-Royce that weekend was also showing off their new Phantom Hybrid.
We left the event and went home to change. At that point we were running way way behind schedule! We were supposed to meet my friend and her friends for drinks before the new Twilight movie, but between the flight delay, the bomb in the bus on Ventura Blvd (yes, bomb) and being overly exhausted, we couldn’t quite do it.
We did, however, make it to the 12:45AM showing of Breaking Dawn (which was fun in the beginning and took an overly strange turn at the end…) My phone started dying by this point so I have no pictures.
At 6AM we arose and got ready to head out to Las Vegas.
When we got there the room was much bigger than we anticipated. The staff kept opening more and more locked doors that led to bedrooms and bathrooms….
Then we went to an “ice bar” which is basically a bar inside a giant freezer with some crazy ice scultptures. They call it “minus 5″ because that is how cold it is…but we soon figured out they meant Celsius…We weren’t roughing it as bad as we thought.
The highlight of Minus 5 were the cocktails in ice cocktail glasses! They were not only delicious, but we got to shatter them when we left.
I decided to smoke a cigar. I figured all the junk was getting in my lungs in the casino anyway, why not join in? Ohhhh I am so not a smoker. I got the worst headache and had to go up to the room to clear my head after partaking in a vanilla flavored stogie.
I actually won money in Vegas! I almost lost all my winnings at a Black Jack table, but then, luckily, won it all back!
I discovered how much I hated Penny Slots! They have the worst return and totally drain you! $50 min. Black Jack is safer! (not kidding!)
We Finally made it home where my parents were waiting with the boys! Monta! and Sprinkles Cupcakes!
