Great weekend (Part 1)

See, I told you I’d post a little extra something since my Saturday blog was full of info for writers. Aren't I nice? Seriously, if you knew me in real life, you'd think I'm nice as hell. Or you'd think I'm an a-hole. Definitely one of the two.

Anyway, I had the greatest weekend! I darted out of work Friday like my ass was on fire and headed straight to this new shopping plaza on Lake Mead Blvd. in Henderson that I love, love, love. I absolutely hate to shop, but this plaza has a Target, a Marshall’s, a Famous Footwear, and a Ross Dress for Less (opening soon), so this place is like heaven to me.

I can’t wait for the new Ross to open! I love Ross—look at these four cute tops I bought at the store on Eastern and Serene last week. Total cost: $35.

I swear, I should be in a 12-step program for cute Ross tops; I have about 40 in my closet, arranged according to color. If I’m having a bad day or feeling the slightest bit depressed, I just head to Ross and pick up a new top for $7.99 and everything is back to being perfect!

So after work on Friday, I struck gold at Famous Footwear, where I found these Steve Madden Girl wedges. How freakin’ cute are these? Plus, I’m like 5’8” in them, which of course makes me look soooo much thinner. Seriously, that’s how heels work—it’s like magic! (P.S. My ankles are not that fat in real life; it's just the angle of the camera.)

Then Friday night my super cute and sexy BF and I went to a party at the MGM Grand by invitation of my beloved blogging buddy Hurricane Mikey. They had a very cool suite with a balcony, which was awesome, but the best part was that everybody there was like the nicest person on earth--Mikey's peeps are as awesome as he is! I got to meet some of Mikey’s family, including his sister Amy, who got married Saturday at the Special Memories Wedding Chapel. Amy is an absolute doll, plus she’s a Deadhead, which I love because you don’t get to meet many Deadheads in Vegas. Personally, I love the Dead, and can’t hide my amusement when I forget to put my cell phone on vibrate at work and “Uncle John’s Band” emanates from my cubicle. Yeah, then I’ll wonder why they chose me for random drug screening…

I also got to meet some of Mikey’s blog readers who follow my blog now, too. OMG, what a thrill! People seem to love the Courtney stories! Here I am with Drew from Wisconsin. He was really, really nice and has amazing calves, which you can’t see here, from doing step aerobics.

Whew! I’ll tell you about the rest of my weekend on Tuesday. It’s all good!

Sounds like so much fun. Those tops are crazy at that prize. And the photo of you is gorgeous - you have the greatest smile! I want to know if you saw the calves first or he drew your attention to them????

Oh, Lilly, you're so sweet! I look at pictures of myself and hope I'm much better looking in real life-ha!

He showed us his calves first, but man!, they were quite impressive!

Ok, skinny bitch, stop showing off the size 0 shirts. I couldn't fit my arm into one of those. LOL

I'm bringing my video camera to Vegas, and taking my blog readers on a video tour of our weekend! Well, only the clean stuff, I'm sure. :)

Awww...looks like you had a blast! And the tops - adorable!

I want those shirts. If you e-mail me, I'll give you my address. Sounds like your weekend was almost as fun as mine, but then nothing can really beat putting up shelves and a table for folding clothes (my favorite job on earth...NOT!) in a laundry room can it?

In high school I had a bumper sticker on my old, olive green, beat-up Toyota that read "There's Nothing Like a Grateful Dead Concert" I saw them eight times at Red Rocks, their favorite place to play. (Now I have a new shiny white Nissan with an Obama sticker!) I'm still a total Dead Head - always have been, always will be. In fact, we played Friend of the Devil at our show a couple of weeks ago.;-)

Loves the tops.

Can't wait for our weekend. We will have a killer time:)

My sister and I both LOVE Ross. It is the best store ever built.
