    So basically I've been getting freaking bombarded with VIMFP references on FB all week and the pics really started rolling in as people arrived in Vegas yesterday.

    I just could not freaking take it!

    I was able to free up a window of time after kid drop off this morning and before a soccer game Sunday where I could get away but alas the rooms were sold out/$300 per night and the flight was $980 round trip.

    I kept checking. $767 one-way to Vegas on the only flight that would get me there in time for the VIMFP beginning at 2pm Friday:

    Too much to pay, no way I'm shelling out $1,500+ for 36 hours in Vegas.

    Then this morning around 5am I note the 6:30am flight dropped last minute to $119. The 9:30 which might work after kid drop off is still $767. No F ing way.

    So I go about my business get kids ready and at exactly 7:37am check one last time before running he kids to school:

    DAMMNNNN THATS CHEAP!!!

    I quick grab a backpack and throw in 2 shirts, shoes, pair of jeans.

    so i text the authorities for final approval

    Grab some toiletries

    Book the flight at the red lights on way to 8am drop off all the while knowing boarding starts at 850am.

    Drop the kiddos like a bad habit, hop on the Kennedy, park and finish packing

    and roll thru TSA pre and I'm at the gate first in line for group 2 with an economy plus aisle for $118.20 literally 50 minutes after deciding to go to Vegas.

    Book golden gate as I walk down the jetway boarding...

    Ahhhh ....:: Vegas Bitches.....as Jordan Bellfore once said: "THE SHOW GOES ON!!!"

    I saw that picture on FB too, didn't realize it was you! Ahhh, nice to know in life you can count on death, taxes and BeeeJay breaking his vows regarding Vegas.

    And for the record, your wife must be a saint! I can only imagine if my husband called me up right now and said he was going to hop a flight to Vegas in an hour.

    ETA - Forgot the most important part: HAVE A BLAST!!!

    Love these surprises! Looking forward to many 8/6 Boner Deluxe quads, even 9/6 if you slide over to Plaza and avoid passing out from the scent!

    Good luck!!!
