Vegas Countdown: 5 Days

Monday, February 2, 2009

We leave for Las Vegas on Saturday. I feel so unprepared.

We are going with a group of friends and we have not planned a thing. That's all fine and good, but it is unlike me to not do a ton of research when going somewhere. But hey, we're winging it. We'll see how it goes.

More than anything, I'm excited to see our friends. The group of us going are spread out from New York to D.C. to North Carolina, so we don't get to spend time together nearly as much as we wish we did.

We're actually meeting up with the North Carolina gang in Atlanta, where we somehow all managed to get on the same connecting flight out to Las Vegas. So excited!

At the moment, my biggest challenge is that I feel like I have nothing to wear in Vegas. The problem is that the temperatures are likely going to be low 60s, and well, I have very little clothing appropriate for that temperature range. Because here, where I live? We swing from one extreme (freezing) to another (hot) pretty quickly. The "spring" and "fall" seasons are relatively short, so I can usually squeak by on the clothing that I have.

But for Vegas? For vacation? Unfortunately, a shopping trip is in order.

Have I ever expressed here my hatred of shopping? Not sure. Anyway, I know, I'm weird. But I hate it. Mostly because I absolutely HATE the mall. HATE HATE HATE.

Furniture shopping, electronics shopping, grocery shopping, craft shopping, internet shopping? All fine. I can even enjoy it. All of these things can be done without stepping foot near a mall.

But clothes shopping? Loathe.

Wish me luck.

Good Luck, it always seems that when you need specific types of clothing - it always seems like you cannot actually find anything. I hope your shopping trip is successful though :)

Hey I'll also be in Vegas this weekend for my bachelorette party! It's going to be a good one. Like you I am having a lot of trouble finding things to wear! I am resorting to raiding the back of my closet for old dresses that I have not had a chance to wear yet! Hopefully I'll find something.

The casinos are absolutely freezing, so make sure you have plenty of hoodies and such (layers are always best), and you have to take multiple because they will stink like smoke if you spend more than 5 minutes at a machine, especially if some 95-year-old lady is sitting next to you smoking her unfiltered Winstons. But I digress. :)

Indoor it's always chilly so bring some cardigans. Skirts should be fine. Make sure you bring comfortable shoes. I always walk a lot in Vegas.
Enjoy your trip. Have fun and relax!

i agree with everyone's comments. vegas itself is HOT, but no humidity. it does get kinda chilly at night. i would pack some febreeze since smoking is allowed in the casinos!
