What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas

Or ends up on a blog!! DUH in the famous words of Kristen! Haha kidding Emily. I can't be that girl spilling all the bachelorette beans!! The weekend was a blast, I may or may not still be recovering. (Well, I am in fact recovering. The sinus fairy gave me a visit right before I left, and whatever cold or sinus problem I was having all trip is still with me.) I had to call in sick today at work, and slept for a solid 12 hours. and I still feel sick as I write this.

enough about snot and more about vegas!
I spent the weekend with these four lovely girls, including the beautiful bride to be in less than two weeks! We were college friends, coming from the (cough cough - see I told you I was sick) best university in the state.. UT of course..HOOK EM. 

Natalie and Patty planned a great party, so I had to share some of the things we did. In my humble opinion, here are some things you need to know about Vegas, specifically, bachelorette party style:

#1. Do NOT stay at Excalibur. I got to Vegas a day and half early and stayed here because it was so cheap. I then moved over to MGM with the girls. I know these trips are expensive, weddings are always expensive. But a saving a few dollars at you lungs expense? Don't do it! The place was truly an ashtray in disguise. .

#2. DO stay at the MGM! Almost as cheap and very fun, clean, remodeled, well kept etc.

Do carve out time to see the Hoover dam or Grand Canyon. I'm a nerd at heart, and when my dad tried to take me to a fatty beef buffet I said heck no, lets go the mountains! and to the mountains we went. It was a 40 minute drive out of Vegas, and we stopped in Boulder City for lunch. I used to watch 'Fools Rush In' on repeat as a tween and I couldn't miss seeing this spot where half the movie was filmed.


This little crevice scared the bejesus out of me. Don't fall!

Do NOT forget this self tanner. Everyone looks fabulous in Vegas so put in a few extra bits of effort. 
Werk it girls!

DO THISSS!! Book a stripper class, even if you aren't in Vegas. It was such a workout, and actually educational. All the tricks were so incredibly hard I left with a new respect for strippers. Which is odd, given I hate strip clubs. If you wanna see a funny video of yours truly spinning on a pole,  email me! .. I don't think the Hubs would appreciate me sharing it on this here blog...

Do shop for Vegas attire in Vegas. Shopping is awesome there, and the SYLK boutique had two Vegas- appropriate dresses for $35 a piece. Now that's a good deal!

Do pin the bachelorette's sash, so it doesn't bug her while out. That sash got us all kinds of freebies and attention, so it was a must have!

DO take the groom with you, everywhere you go. lol. Cutest wedding craft ever from Natalie, the bride's sister!

And last, but definitely not least. DO go to the Thunder from Down Under. Hands down the most fun night! And that's all I will say about that... lol..

If you really want some dirt... go see my videos on the vine app, my username is modersuburbaniiiite (4 i's) .... ..... and I'll stop there. LOL. Lets just say we saw some crazies while in Vegas.   

Love peace and chicken grease y'all.
