Vegas baby!

This past weekend Wes and I jetted off to Las Vegas to attend the wedding of one of my dearest friends. She and her new husband got married in Valley of Fire State Park, about an hour outside of Las Vegas. It was BEAUTIFUL and I’m sorry we didn’t get to do a little more exploring, although it was very hot so maybe that was a blessing!

We gathered a little after 5pm in a few spare patches of shade between the red rocks and watched them get married.

Later that evening we all went to celebrate at Fogo de Chao.

While in Las Vegas we stayed at the Signature at MGM Grand which was a great hotel – it’s 3 towers on the same property as the MGM Grand, but there are no casinos in the hotel. It was quiet, posh and a lovely place to stay. I would totally go back again.

Other things we did: dimsum brunch at the Rio, dinner at Hard Rock, visiting with my cousin and his wife and baby and took in the new Star Trek movie. All in all a great weekend.

And, the icing on the cake is that I finished the present just in time. I knit Jared Flood’s Umaro in just under 2 months. That’s a lot of seed stitch but I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I hope it keeps them warm together forever!
