wolfpack

Vegas... What happens there, stays there, right?  So how can I sum up this weekend without giving away too many secrets? There were injuries.  There was choking.  There were tears.  There were bruises, blisters, vomit, and even a little blood.  But there were also lots of high-fives, WHOOHOO!s, balloon hats, shirtless Aussies and Journey.  Oh, and obviously lots of alcohol.  (Although strangely not as much as past years... I guess this is what 31 feels like?)

If those things aren't indicators of a successful stay in Vegas, then I don’t know what is.

Celebrating our arrival with champagne in our limo.

Checking into the Venetian and getting our VIP bracelets (with more champagne).

Leeza's date for the weekend, Alejandro.

Then off to Tao Beach pool party!  My favorite thing to do in Vegas.




About to eat at Gonzalez Y Gonzalez! (We are down to 7 girls at this point, uh-oh!)

Full of yummy Mexican food and ready for Thunder Down Under! (Down to only 6 girls now, oops!)  We were old ladies this night and didn't make it out past 11pm.  But in our defense, we'd been awake since 5am that morning to catch our flight, and had been drinking since 10am.
And back to Tao Beach on day 2.  See, I told you there were balloon hats!



After stuffing our bellies with Italian food at Dal Toro, we're ready for our second night out.  All 8 of us this time!

Tao Nightclub was so much fun!

The bachelorette making new friends!

We spent our last few hours on Sunday relaxing in the pool, not wanting to leave the sunshine.  Ok, that's a lie.  I was ready to get out of that hot sun!


Viva Las Vegas!

xo,
Rachael

    1. If you ever go to Vegas with a group of girls, the wristbands are a must!! We each paid $70 ahead of time for something called the "bachelorette blowout package", which included tons of free drinks at the pool and different clubs, and no waiting in lines to get into places all weekend. I guess technically the drinks aren't "free" since we paid $70, but considering a beer is about $10, I think it was a good deal.

    1. Haha we both left comments for each other about maxi dresses, how funny! Oh and I did find a hat at Old Navy but I didn't wear it and am going to return it. It's a little tight on the old noggin!
