Last September, Bart and I went home to Vegas for Labor Day. Our flight back to Austin got canceled. We got $200 worth of airline credit (in hindsight, we totally should have pushed for more).
Originally, I was planning on using that credit to fly to Maine and meet up with my mom and Landen this summer, but that trip got shelved eventually for various boring reasons.
So instead, last night, I bought myself a ticket to Las Vegas in July, a few days after my summer class is done. I'll be spending a full week there with my family, and I am confident that the week will involve many good times around Las Vegas, a great deal of delicious food, much movie viewing, and other various good times.
We'll also be going up to Cedar City for two days for the Shakespeare Festival. That weekend will also be Merrick's birthday, so she and her lovely husband will be driving down from Provo to meet us in Cedar City for a birthday lunch and "The Taming of the Shrew." (The choice of show and Merrick's birthday are a coincidental match-up, I assure you).
And, if all that wasn't good enough, it appears very likely that Kayla and Wes will be coming up from Arizona for a few days. I have met Kayla at least once before in real life, but I don't actually really remember it. Than, via Miss Nemesis' comment section and my unusual name, we discovered that we both had desk jobs that allowed for many many emails to be sent during the course of a work day and, viola, fake friends! I'm ridiculously excited.
Alas, Bart cannot come with me as 1) we have only $200 of credit, 2) he'll be in school and 3) he'll be working. This is unfortunate, but cannot really be helped. But someone needs to pay for that whole. . . . $85 my ticket cost after the vouchers.
