Nate and I recently found out that he and I are going to be flown out to Las Vegas in October… Long story for another time. But, yes, a whirlwind, sorta-business trip to Vegas is in our near future. Although I’ve known about it for awhile, I didn’t want to get my hopes up until two tickets were officially purchased.
Which happened today.
Which was followed by much cheering, sad cart-wheel attempts (done in a very-happy fashion), and then a few exaggerated skips around the living room. Really, thank goodness I don’t get over-excited about things! I don’t know that our lamps would have survived.
Once the drama of the moment settled, however, I came to a crashing halt on the living room carpet and gasped, “What am I going to WEAR?”
No, seriously, what AM I going to wear??
So while I DO plan on going shopping for at least one or two dressy tanks or tops to go with my skinny jeans, I thought, “Hmmm, why not bring a bit of New England to Vegas?”
Why not bring a bit of ME to Vegas? (Well, all of me is going, but you know what I mean…)
So, I thought these might be some pieces that could work.

I’m pretty sure that I should pack the flannels just in case the desert gets cold at night…
… and and my favorite moose hat.
Accessories are totally the rage when it comes to outfits that come together perfectly. I wonder if people in Las Vegas would be proud of the tomato I grew in my VERY own garden?
Sorry, I didn’t think a veggie could count as an accessory either. But I really was proud of that tomato.
Okay, back to being serious here…
I’m guessing that I should probably be a little bit heavier on the eye makeup…
No, WAY heavier.
Oh, and I probably should bring a really nice dress, in case I want to get hitched… again. I mean, you only have the oppertunity to get married to your husband AGAIN by Elvis for the FIRST time ONCE. (Yeah, I don’t get it either).
Nah, you’re right, those are too crazy…
I’m starting to think that Vegas will never be the same again.
It’s a good thing that whatever happens in Vegas…
