What Happens In Vegas...

So for those of you who don't know, I lived in Las Vegas for a year while I was pregnant. Punkin was actually born there. I was enrolled in culinary school and living in San Diego at the time and was just going to transfer out to Vegas, which was a huge place in the culinary industry. I was just getting ready to get everything in place for a job I was taking at the Wynn casino as a sous chef in the catering and banquet department {which would have been perfect for me since I want to own my own catering business someday} when I found out I was pregnant. Since working in the culinary world means working 12 hour days, 7 days a week, I decided to stick with teaching and have normal hours and keep my insurance.

While I would definitely never move back to Vegas, I still always have a blast whenever I am there visiting friends. At the end of the week, Jon and I will be going to Las Vegas so that I can get some of my stuff that is still at my ex's parent's house. Our whole house was packed up after we moved and is still sitting in their garage. I won't be able to get everything {we had a 3 bedroom house full of stuff!} but it will be nice to have some of the more important stuff. Like my paperwork, clothes and kitchen stuff! This will be Jon's first time actually being in Vegas {he drove through it once} and I am excited to show him around and have him meet one of my best friends who lives out there {she actually moved out there with me and was with me through everything}. I am also a little nervous because this will be the first time that I have been away from Punkin for so long {even though it's only 2 days! Ha!}. My Mom will be watching her for us and while I will admit that I am so excited to actually get a break {I can't remember the last time I had one of those but I think it was only for a couple of hours while I went out on a date with my now-fiance}, it's going to be extremely strange to not have her with me. This girl has been by my side since the day she was born! But it will be so good for Jon and I to have some time to ourselves. He has gone all out and has set everything up for Thursday night. The details are to remain a surprise {even to me!} but I know that it's going to be a lot of fun. So if you don't hear me from me for a few days, it's because I am here...
