For months before Vegas, my girlfriends and I committed to a #VegasDiet. And I say it using that dorky hashtag because it basically consisted of us tweeting one another pics of our light fare using that designation. As we quickly grew weary of the seriousness in reminding one another about our diets (LAY OFF ME I'M STARVING), we started tweeting images in jest of water bottles or air with the hashtag #vegasdiet. Preparing for the trip was a restricting activity which was only fun because we constantly texted about our deprivation- misery loves company, and company in misery makes for some hilarious jokes.

But make no mistake- the day after Vegas my friend sent me a picture of a HUGE piece of pizza with the notation #postvegasdiet. Sho' nuff, eat up girl.
Oh and also, a lot of people commented saying they were surprised Vegas was expensive. I felt it best to clarify why I thought it was expensive (I know people are familiar with Vegas so I don't think I'm unleashing any 'in' secrets): Vegas is one of those places where you can easily get good deals on Flights and hotels... but in general, everything is just more expensive. My Chipolte Bowl was $12.50. My smoothie was $6.25. Drinks were about $15-$28 dollars, which to grown-up me, is just a bit of a gouger. And it all adds up. I budgeted for it but there was always that voice in my head saying "what the $*&%!".
Happy Monday! I work one day today before 3 days of vacation (Go America!) so it shan't be too bad. Have a great one!
