    My Trip Report

    FINALLY! I am heading back tomorrow! Feels like it’s been forever since my last trip in November.

    There’s been a lot of stress and turnover at the job I took last September. After getting 2 offers from larger companies, salary was negotiated and I’ll be starting at the end of the month! After tomorrow, it’s time for a break!

    Packing and found I actually need 2 fuckin’ bags because I can’t decide what to wear! Jackson is trying to help.

    Chloe has no idea what the Suitcase means and is just....being Chlo.

    Snacks for the road + bath bomb for the room, Spa Finder gift cards and sunscreen! Hopefully my friend A (from previous trip reports) and I will be on the road from Southern California around noon or 1p tomorrow!

    Staying at Mandalay Bay the first 2 nights, then hopefully racking up a shitload of points at the Cosmo! So excited!

    “I want the easy, easy money...
    I could get lucky - things could go right...”

    Get into town safely, girl.
    A bit of a madhouse today so we
    ordered in-room pizza and some beers. Can’t pull myself away from the terrace view. Hope to see you tomorrow. :wave:

    I’m sure with Mother’s Day too it was fucking nuts! Hoping to leave as early as possible in the afternoon.... will see you sometime tomorrow, yay! Maybe we can all do dinner (unless you already have date night plans)?

    The pluses of taking my car: I’m comfortable with it, I’ve got roadside assistance through Hyundai, and don’t need to put down a stinkin’ deposit!

    Thanks for the wiggle-butt cat luck, @Richard Alpert ! I’m excited for the adventure! We’ll have slots, we’ll have food, we’ll venture off Strip.... it’ll be so fun!

    @Multifarious5 - just live vicariously through me, your trip is right around the corner!!

    Have a blast! Don’t know how you to stand to wait so long. Congrats on the new salary. Adorable kitties!

    Jealous your cats got you something for mother’s day. I gave each of mine the “good stuff” catnip at the end of the night so I can watch them go crazy then pass out.

    Can’t wait to follow your adventures. You and @ardee at the same time? I worry for anyone else in Vegas.

    LOL, this is the exact same reason I clicked in right away. I usually wait for the action to pick up a bit before starting these.
