This post is titled "lately," but I almost titled it "rain, rain, go away."  I've concluded that part of my reason for feeling so "blah" this summer is because it's been so doggone rainy.  It's made this summer just weird.

On another note, I'm happy to have my husband back home. He's been gone for about a week.  I never sleep well when he's away.

He spent the first part of last week working a football camp, and then he spent the latter part of the week and weekend in Vegas.  A family friend is getting married, so "the boys" went to Vegas to celebrate his last days of his bachelorhood.  

When DK got back, I asked him the question I ask everyone when they return from a trip (this is important stuff, people):  "What did y'all eat?  What restaurants did you go to?  What did you order?" Call me crazy, but you will always have my full attention when you're talking about different restaurants and foods that you tried on a trip.  I was looking forward to hearing about the infamous casino buffets -- I've heard they're incredible.  But don't you know those crazy fools never ate at any of them??  I was SO disappointed.  Like, why did you go to Vegas if you didn't try a casino buffet??

They didn't spend a lot of time in the casinos, which I guess is a good thing. They mostly frequented bars, lounges, and clubs.  They ate a lot of wings, tacos, and nachos.  How boring is that?? DK said that's the difference in when only the boys go than when the girls are with them - ha! 

Of course I asked about all the other stuff: 

  • The wedding chapels.  They never saw any because they never went to "Old Vegas." Who goes to Vegas and doesn't go see the wedding chapels and stuff?  (Men without their wives and girlfriends, I guess.)
  • The lights.  DK admitted seeing the city lit up was kinda cool.
  • The prices.  Being the frugal person that I am, I am always curious about how much stuff costs in different places.  DK said that getting into a club cost you about $50 (and up). That didn't include drinks or anything; a drink could easily be $15-20. Uh, no. Not EVEN.  DK said that after doing that a night or two, they eventually found some little hole in the wall places with decent prices.
  • The prostitution. One of the things that comes to mind when I think Vegas is the legal prostitution. Now I don't condone prostitution -- I think it's just as disgusting as the next person -- but I asked DK what it looked like on the streets of Vegas.  If it looked like the movies (barely-dressed women looking to show a man a "good time..."). Nothing like the movies, he said. "Professional representatives" were handing out "business" cards with a number you could call and specify the type of girl/service you would like. Crazy.  I tested DK by asking, "So show me a card!  What did they look like?" He claims they never got one - ha! Good answer, my friend. :-)  I find it hard to believe that they never got one out of curiosity...because I probably would have. (My inquisitiveness has almost no limits, people. Except that I wouldn't have actually USED the information on the card - duh.)
Anyhoo, I didn't really start this post with intentions of recapping DK's Vegas trip, but he didn't have any good pictures for me to post to our little family scrapbook (this blog). They're guys, which means they didn't really take pictures. (So boring.) There are a couple of funny videos, but I think DK is purposely not forwarding those to me so they don't end up here. :-) They had the "guy's version" of a good time, which is all that matters, I guess.

Here's what the little one and I have been up to:

Taking advantage of what little "dry" time we've had.

National Ice Cream Day

I've been trying to keep her mind fresh since I've kept her out of preschool most of the summer. A few days a week, we take a little time to do educational activities.  I plan to do a separate post on that one day soon to record kind of what I did with her.

M actually went to school a couple of days this week, so I had the opportunity to try a new trail.  It was wet (ugh), and there were a couple of times where I almost bust my arse in the slippery mud.  But I got a halfway decent run.  I also went to my gym's Zumba class for the first time this week and released my inner Beyonce.  I know I'm super late with the Zumba craze, but now I see what the fuss is about.  I'll be going back 'cause it was fun, fun (and I'm sore today, which definitely makes it worth it). 

Hope everyone's having a good week!
