Vacation in Vegas? 10 Reasons Why You May Already be Living the Life
If you’ve been following my instagram, you are well aware… I spent last week in Las Vegas. Enjoying a kid-free mini-vacation, while my husband was attending a conference. I intended to go and get lots of sleep, work lots from Starbucks, and workout every day. And while I did a little bit of the aforementioned, I mostly had a great time. Eating decadent foods, drinking exotic cocktails, and indulging in a few AMAZING shows.
As this was my first vacation in Vegas, I’m not going to put on my tour guide hat and tell you all of the things you must do like see Absinthe or eat at Sage. Instead, I’m going to share with you all of the reasons why if you can’t get away to Las Vegas, you still might be living a rock-star lifestyle and not even know it. Oh yes, my friends. Living with three kids is pretty much exactly like a vacation in Vegas.
1) There’s a definite blur between daytime and night time. Babies need bottles, kids wet beds, moms and dads are sleep-deprived. Who needs casinos when you can stay up all night from the comfort of your own home?
2) I see plenty of naked boys. I live with four of them.
3) Clothes (including undergarments) are constantly being thrown at me from people de-robing themselves. See #2.
5) I can always get a (boozy) drink when I need it. It’s called a refrigerator.
6) It smells bad. I think the cigarette smoke may be just as bad as a full diaper genie. Well, at least a half-full diaper genie.
7) It takes forever to get from Point A to Point B. But instead of going in and out of casinos and malls, I’m dodging lego bricks and searching for pacifiers. (Added bonus – I don’t have to do it in heels when I’m at home.)
8) Everyone demands attention. In Vegas it’s the ticket hawkers and prostitutes, at home it’s a fussy baby and a six-year-old cuddle monster. It’s almost the same.
9) Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Always necessary, no matter what time zone I wake up in.
10) Some call it Paradise. While many flock to Las Vegas for the decadence and good times; I definitely enjoyed my time whilst there. But the saying is definitely true… there’s no place like home.
