    Your vacation looks just awesome! Great food, great company, good workout, fun entertainment and blessed sunshine! Of course, the burning question I had was “wonder what Lisa was reading…” ?

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Actually I have a post coming next week about what I’m reading!

      1. emmaclaire

        Great! My library hold list was getting a little short, and I always find some gems in your reviews!

        1. Lisa Eirene

          I’ve read some really good ones lately!

  2. Courtney

    What a fun weekend! I am definitely going to remember those places for a future visit.

    Speaking of coffee, I had the best cup of coffee at the new Pine State last weekend. I’ve emailed them to find out what it was because it was honestly like tasting a fine red wine or chocolate. It was life changing. I’m sure it doesn’t come in Keurig pods (LOL) but it’d be worth breaking out our other coffee maker. I’ll let you know if I find out.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      YES! That is what this coffee was like. Heavenly. Would love to know the name when you find out.

    OMG – I love Vegas!! It has been far too long since I’ve been and reading about your fun makes me think it is time to plan a trip. Glad you got to hook up with friends and have a great weekend.
    And, so glad you did Jello shots – years since I did those, too!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      They were pretty darn good! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Coco

    Sounds like so much fun. I’ve only been to Vegas once, 10 years ago!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Time to go again! A lot has changed in 10 years. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Carla

    and I be living vicariously.

    When we were in Vegas – the hardest thing to find was a decent cup of coffee! It was all so weak. We finally found one at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yeah. I’m not a Starbucks fan so the pickins are slim!

  8. Biz

    I WANT TO GO TO VEGAS! Yep, I had to shout that! I think I would just go crazy with all the restaurants, not so much the gambling!

    Glad you had so much fun – next time – book a later flight Sunday! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I think it’s time you go! And I agree, a later flight is definitely preferred!

    You are looking damn fabulous, Lisa! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And kudos to your friend Anna! Working for the Peace Corp is one hell of a comittment!
