Honeymoon in Vegas

Hello my dear blogging friends! I know it's been like a year since my last confession, er I mean post. All I can say is that life can really take a road that devours up an entire year! So many things have taken place in the Life & Times of RevRee...I don't even know where to begin.

First of all, on October 16th I will be celebrating my first year Anniversary with my amazing husband "Flip"! It's hard to believe that it's been nearly 4 years since the day we met and already 1 year of marriage...

I suppose this post should be about where the frak I've been for the last year. But, instead I'm going to tell you all about our honeymoon! Isn't that exciting?!!....*cough* Hello?...

ANYWAY, as you can see from my post a year ago, I got married! The wedding was the most beautiful event ever...seriously is was fantastic! After our wedding, "Flip" and I decided to take a short 20 hour road trip to Las Vegas!



We left for Vegas at 2am Monday morning right after returning home from a 10 hour drive from our wedding. Then we had to drop the kids off, re-pack, then we headed right back out the door!

Needless to say, we made it for about 5 hours before "Flip" started seeing Sasquatches and gnomes running across the highway...so, we found a lovely Flying-J truck stop and closed our eyes for a moment...actually it was like 4 hours. Thankfully we didn't answer the knocking at our window of a "Lot Lizard"...AWKWARD!

Finally, bright and early that morning we get back on the road and saw some beautiful sights along the way...




Although some of you may think I stole these pictures from the Internets, I actually did take these photos! It's award winning stuff folks...the drive was long, we saw lots of mountains and lots of sand...the temperature went from 90 degrees to 40 degrees and raining once we reached Flagstaff...INSANE!

I am proud to say that I drove thru the wind and rain in the freakin' mountains while "Flip" took one last nap before entering the Nevada state line.

Once across state lines, we stopped at this little shack in the middle of nowhere..just like in the movies. I have to tell you, it was pretty AWESOME! You actually had to buy something if you wanted to use the bathroom...I have to admit, it's a genius idea because there's literally nowhere else to go! So, yeah...we had to buy something, cuz I had to go really bad!...what? I couldn't hold it!

After re-adjusting ourselves and "Flip" took over the driving duties...we made our way to the Hoover Dam at like midnight...it was a fantastic sight! I'd show you pictures of that too, but my camera just wasn't working and I didn't get any good shots...my bad, sorry...

OK, FINALLY, we drive into the beautiful city of lights, Casinos, free XXX flyer's and $1.99 Buffets -LAS VEGAS!



We find the hotel, park the car, grab all our luggage and make our way inside the hotel lobby. Once inside, we hear this loud Asian woman say to us as we pass by "YOU WANT TO SEE FREE SHOW?" I tried to ignore her, but she kept saying "LADY, YOU WANT TO SEE FREE SHOW?" So we stop and say, "sure"...

(At this time, I'd like to point out that I KNEW the entire time it was a total scam! I just want to state that for the record. "Flip" was onto her as well and just wanted to play along to see what the Lady's "trick" was. So, we we played her little game for a few moments...)

She continues
...

Asian Lady: "YOU CAN SEE 2 SHOW FOR FREE! WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE? LION KING?... THE BLUE MAN GROUP, ....THUNDER DOWN UNDER?..WHAT YOU WANT?"

"Flip":
"sure, we'll take 2 tickets to see the Blue man Group...they're free right?..."

The lovely Asian woman: "YES 100% FREE TO YOU! OK WONDERFUL, YOU JUST GIVE ME $100 DOLLARS AND I GIVE IT BACK TO YOU AFTER THE SHOW"

We walk away...

Asian Lady: *screaming* "YOU MISSING OUT ON A GREAT OPPORTUNITY! I WON'T BE HERE TOMORROW!!!"

We quickly speed walk away from the crazy Asian lady, trying to mix in with the crowd and get the frak away. We make our way to the check in line and finally it's our turn. Everything goes smoothly...we check in, get our keys to the room and head to the 15th floor.

We make out in the hotel elevator as we move up floors. (Hey, we're on our honeymoon, chill!)*DING* the elevator stops at our destination floor. We walk and walk down beautiful hallway after beautiful hallway...they all look the same. Anyway, we find our room take a deep breath and "Flip" opens the door...below is what we found in our room...



That's right folks, the room was in shambles!! It's like someone else had their honeymoon in OUR ROOM!!!! Needless to say, we weren't very happy. "Flip" got on the phone and politely demanded that this be fixed ASAP! The hotel manager came up to the room and was also devastated and disgusted with the sight. He apologized over and over again and said he had a honeymoon suit all ready for us on the 20th floor!

Below is what they gave us for $25 a night! I know, it's AWESOME!!!!



I won't go into detail, but I will say that the hot tub was pretty spectacular! If you look real closely at the picture of the hot tub... yeah, that's a window looking out onto the Vegas strip...and the window opens...that's all I'll say...

In closing...it was an amazing time that we will never forget. We had quite a few little escapades during our vacation and it was a blast! "Flip" is truly my best friend and the love of my life. I wouldn't want to take any adventure in life without him.

I'll leave you with some random pictures of a mini-Elvis, a mini-Marilyn Monroe, a Gold Elvis, an Alien, Street Performers and Hookers for your enjoyment!

Until next time, my blogging friends!

(NO IT WILL NOT BE A YEAR BEFORE I POST AGAIN!)

You stayed in the same room that I refused after viewing it with a black light, and being momentarily blinded by the ubiquitous glare of human secretion.

Also I was disappointed in the postage-stamp sized hot-tub window that the brochure dubbed a "sweeping Las Vegas vista where a couple* (* ideally) could practice the entire Kamasutra to the delight of passersby".

However I am glad that my impossibly high standards did not keep you from obviously having a much more enjoyable honeymoon than, well, Eva Braun, to cite one example. And I think I know a few reasons why:

1) Eva's fiance was too cheap to spring for anything above ground

2) Eva's fiance was apparently a control freak (I'm guessing that Flip lets you wear the pants

3) You and Flip probably left the firearms at home

4) Germ-infested or not, your room did have a hot tub

5) Apparently Eva and her beau did not make whoopie after marriage (wait, on second thought, this one is probably a tie)

6) Eva's beau did not have a "festive" name like Flip

7) You and Flip probably did not have irate neighbors trying to pound down the door (giving the benefit of the doubt here)

8) Eva and her beau did not have access to multiple channels on how to gamble, and pay-per-view porn featuring previous hotel guests

9) You and Flip were obviously able to sucessfully check out

10) Berlin was not invaded (unless that was a euphemism for one of your "activities")

Anyhoo, congrats. Try not to change each other.

(p.s. - was Flip pregnant in that picture?)
