thoughtless thursday...

thoughtless thursday is brought to you by the adorable, pregnant katie over at life in the fulmer lane!!
if you don't know her, go check out her blog! love her!
the rules for T.T. as stated by katie...
Here's the deal. Pick a picture (or a bunch) of WHATEVER you want. No explanation needed (but is more than welcome).

i decided to go with a bunch of pictures this week!
this is a long post, you can just look at pics if you'd like :)


3 years ago at this very time in march i went to VEGAS with my bestie laura and our friend morgan.
we planned the trip over my other bestie,whitney's, birthday.
she ended up not being able to come though :(
it was my first time to vegas, laura and morgan had already been a few times.
here are some pics from our trip. we actually didn't even take that many pics.
at the airport having a drink before getting on the plane.
me, morgan and laurai hated my hair back in those days!!!

this is pic on the way to dinner our first night, we were on a moving sidewalk... morgan had been to vegas more than once.
she knew the right people.
we met her friend for dinner and he paid... here we are in a limo on our way to the palm's hotel....
at da club...since morgan knew this one guy we got into the club for free and got all of our drinks free.
not sure who he was and laura and i never did find out his real name.
fine by me though, i don't mind free stuff! ha!
my phone went in the toilet that night...

the next morning we grabbed breakfast.... giant margaritas of course...
then we walked the strip and did a little tourist shopping...
the second night we got all dolled up and went to dinner.
no pictures of that.
then we met up with some of my friends from minnesota that were living in utah.
we decided to change and have a "minnesota" night at the bar AMERICA in New York, New York. us girls all wearing jeans and hollister sweatshirts...haha
i think this was the next morning, me outside our hotel...
my phone also went into a giant cup of water that morning.
we went and ate a giant brunch then i guess i changed again to go do some shopping on the strip.
on our last night we decided to not hang out with morgan's friend, ha.
we were prepared to pay to get into some club, the line was really long, so we went to sit in a little bar right outside of JET before the doors opened.
one of the club promoters approached us and asked if we would be willing to walk in the club with a group of guys.
the deal for us was we would get in free, be in VIP and have bottle service all night.
all we had to do was walk in with these guys.
um, sure....
we will walk into the club with them and then drink all their booze.
so we did.... we had so much fun!!!
we danced ALL night long!
drank WAY TOO MUCH!!
lost morgan for WAY TOO LONG.
then celebrated with more drinks @4 when we finally found her!! ha!
me and laura in the bathroom happy we found morgan!
this is us when we left the club... i don't think i had hardly any makeup on by the time we left at 5 it all sweated off.
the next morning was ROUGH to say the least!
we had to check out by 11.
morgan was smart and she kept her room pass so we went down to the pool area and went to sleep on the chairs. thanks for taking my pic laura...
this is us right before leaving vegas...
i wish we had more pictures, we went out to dinner each night and got all dressed up but i don't have any pictures of that. we spent time by the pool each day as well, there was a lazy river. i loved our hotel!

it's funny to look at what we wore, i think the fashions have changed!!
if i was in vegas this year, i wouldn't be wearing jeans!!
i'd be wearing adorable party dresses!!

okay, longest post ever....

i have a 3 day weekend, i'm going to south dakota to visit family and for my cousin's graduation!! :)
happy thursday, have a great weekend everyone!!!

btw, after two plunges while submerged in water my phone did survive the trip somehow....

How cute are you? It doesn't matter what color your hair is, or the length you still look incredible! I envy you! Such a pretty girl.

I love your pictures. I've been jonesing for a Vegas trip - this may tip me over the edge!

I think your hair was cute, but I like it better brunette.

Jessica said...

This is like torture! I want to go to Vegas so bad, but I've decided it's not worth it until I'm 21. Now I'm 21 and Dearest isn't! Why wait? Because I made the mistake of telling him I wouldn't go until he "could"...GREAT!

katie + bret said...

Oh my gosh I didn't even recognize you with the blonde hair - Too cute!

Ah, I love VEGAS!!! Looks like you girls had a complete BLAST!

Shelby Bukhenik said...

AmberDenae said...

P.S. I left you an award on my blog, beautiful! :) xo

Lucy Marie said...

Girl I hardly recognized you with blond hair! I dont' know if I've ever seen some one who can pull of both light and dark hair so well.

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

How fun! I've always wanted to go to Vegas! Through me off with those blonde locks, I love it!

Dionne said...

Good that your phone survived! Looks like a blast! I always have fun in Vegas!

Meg said...

Those pictures are fun! I definitely am a fan of your darker hair as opposed to your blond hair; however, that trips look so much fun! I would have been drunk the entire weekend and it looks like you were, lol. That drink before the plane ride is wicked big! Yum-O! I loved your Thoughtless Thursday post. :)

Shayla said...

Hey girl i havent been here in a while :(

I Loved all of your pics!!! you look so different with blonde hair, but I agree brunette is better :)!!!!

that is so awesome about all the free club stuff haha that would NEVER in a million years happen to me LOL

I can't wait to sneak back and see more about your wedding plans :))))!!!!

Jamie Pickle said...

Awww, fun times with the girlies.

When I was in college we ALWAYS went out in jeans, a cute tank and flip flops. Now when we go out I have to get all decked out!! Crazy!

Katie said...

awww, what FUN! and how sweet of you to say such sweet things about my blog :)

and wow blonde hair!! you look good BOTH ways!!! that's just not fair ... ;)

thanks for playing and thanks for sharing!!! :)

Sadako said...

Great pics--you look like you are having SO much fun!

Katy Mary said...

Looks like so much fun! Vegas is on my list of places I want to go ASAP. My friends keep saying they want my Bachelorette Party to be there but I think I'd rather experience it before that lol.

Kristen said...

You look so different as a blonde, but you pull both blond and brunette off well!

Neely said...

Cute pics cute girls and you look super super cute!!! Love the hair :)

Becca said...

What cute pics! SOOO much fun. It is so crazy to see you as a blonde!

PorkStar said...

Nice pictures!!!

I'm trying to catch up with your blog, so sorry I've been one lousy reader.

Hayley said...

lol I was going to ask how the phone fared at the end of the trip! your vegas trip sounds like all of mine, before I had kids... now when we go to vegas, we get buzzed by like 2 drinks and are in bed by nine haha we've become such pansies. makes for a cheap vacay, though! Isn't it weird all the perks that pretty girls get when they go there? my best friend lived there for a few years and i'd go visit her, and we never ever had to buy anything when we went out. it was awesome. now they'd be denying me like that scene from knocked up.

it was so weird to see you blond! i wouldn't have recognized you! I like it, though. but i like your dark hair much better :D

Crazy Shenanigans said...

At first I didn't recognize you with the blonde hair!!! I love the America restaurant in vegas! It's so fun!

PaigeR530 said...

I could not figure out why you posted a bunch of pictures without you in them until I FINALLY realized that you used to be a blonde! OMG I didn't even recognize you! VERY few people can pull of dark and light hair like you can!

Emily @ Longley's in San Diego said...

Love Vegas! I think i'm one of the only people who likes to go there to relax ha. I have a friend who always has connections when she's there, but since we live only a few hours away she gets the fun part of driving back hung over ha.

Love Lace said...

I had to look twice to find you in the pictures! I didn't recognize you with blonde hair! How fun! I've never been to Vegas, but hope to go sometime soon!

Meant to be a mom said...

How fun, I hardly even knew that was you. Its funny because I like your hair in these pics but I do agree you look gorgeous as a brunette :)
It looks like you ladies had a blast, Jealous! So fun!

Miss*Kimmy said...
