26 bloggers who traveled to Vegas for the first of many trips
48 hours in Vegas
6 hours I spent poolside
5 miles walked up and down the Vegas strip
7 casinos & hotels visited (Luxor, The Excalibur, New York, New York, The Bellagio, The Venetian, Caeser’s Palace, MGM Grand)
2 $5 wine glasses I enjoyed at the Venetian Happy Hour
9 dollars I spent (and lost) on gambling all weekend
4, the average number of hours slept per night while in Vegas
2 brave fiances/husbands who came on the trip
3 trips made to Starbucks
18 new blogs/twitter accounts and friends I have as a result of the trip
40 times people tried to hand us call-girl business cards
11 dollars, the cost of the Lemon Drop shot that pushed me over the edge on Saturday evening
2 trips made to the buffet line on Friday evening
50 text messages sent and received to bloggers in Vegas
1 fire hydrant that we almost ran into while walking
26 promises to meet-up, stay in touch and see each other again… SOON!

    Um, ok this one (esp the last part) made me all teary-eyed all over again! I can’t believe how many people I fell in love with this weekend!

    Also – KUDOS to you for only having TWO glasses of wine at happy hour on Saturday. I think I had 5. That’s more than a bottle.
