What Happens In Vegas...

So The Boyfriend and I are thinking about taking a trip to Vegas. We have never been there together, and while I go at least once a year for work (trade shows and what not) I think it would be splendid to go together. In an effort to get the ball rolling on this one, I'm putting together a list to send him of reasons why I think we should go, ASAP. Feel free to leave me a comment if you can think of anything I should add...I'm totally open for suggestions.

Re: Las Vegas

Hi Honey! How are you? I hope you had a great day at work. Hey, I was thinking! We should expedite our trip to Las Vegas, per our initial discussion the other day. In case you need further convincing, I've put together a list of reasons why I think we should go:

1. It's Cheap. Vegas is just FILLED with deals right now. Travelocity dot com has three nights plus airfare right now at the Mandalay bay for $266 per person, and $340 for the Wynn.
2. Food. Some of the best restaurants in the world are in Las Vegas. And we all know the way to your heart in through your stomach! Need I say more?

3. Shopping! While were there, we can shop! Okay, this might not be fun for you, but I promise I'll go into all of the stores you like if you come with me too. Maybe I'll even let you in the dressing room with me, if you promise not to tell anyone!!!
4. Day Drinking. I know you love nothing more than a tipsy Erin in the afternoon! Who doesn't? I'd love to sit at that fancy-schmancy bar in the Bellagio with you, drinking a nice big glass of Pinot and recanting our life's adventures while snacking on cocktail nuts and popcorn. Sounds like heaven to me.
5. Shows! We could go see a funny show, a magic show, or a naughty show! I'm down for whatevs. Entertain me!

6. The Weather. It's so nice and hot and dry there! And I've always wanted to lay poolside with you and sip pina coladas. With cute little umbrellas! And fruit on sticks!! I'll wear my leopard print bikini!!!
7. Room Service. Remember that one time in San Diego when we ordered burgers and fries at one in the morning and made the biggest mess and I got ketchup all over myself? I want to recreate that moment. Enough said.
8. Neon. I'm feeling like I might be a tad neon deficient. I need a hefty dose.

9. Pretty Girls. I promise I won't be jealous. In Sin City, pretty girls are everywhere. Plus, I'm made of hugs, kisses and sunshine, and they are made of Botox, silicone and pleather.
10. We Need A Vacation. Even if it's just for a weekend. And I love you. To the moon and back, a million times. XOXO.


  1. I loved your letter and can't imagine him not caving...

  2. LOL I love this post! I want to go to Vegas SO BAD! If you can believe it I have NEVER been. Well actually I flew in twice... hubby picked me up at the airport and wisked me out to Dumont sand dunes! =(((
    You are going to have SO MUCH FUN! I am jealous!

  3. Have an amazing time!!!!!!
    We got married in Vegas nearly 9 yrs and $299 ago :)

  4. Awwww BF better say yes to this! I haven't been to Vegas since Feb. 2008. Had a traumatizing time there at a tradeshow (was helping a friend out with her job).

  5. OMG I love this letter!!!! Vegas is awesome!

  6. Check out my post series from May 2009 about Vegas - great suggestions there!! Have a safe trip!!

  7. This letter convinced me so it's sure to convince him!

  8. haha- He better say yes. As I'm reading I was thinking, oh man, I could never say No to that. Number 9 is my favorite!!

  9. Hell, I'll go with you based on #4 alone. In fact, I'd go to the bus stop based on #4 alone.


  10. vegas or bust baybay! mind if I hide in your suitcase?!

  11. Hahaha! I think this letter says it all... he will be convinced enough already.

  12. Haha, I'm convinced! I love vegas! Hope he says yes :)

  13. I've only been to Vegas once. And I was 16, so it totally doesn't count.
    The husband went for his sister's wedding...but he was 19.

    You just convinced me to go to Vegas.
    I'm stealing your letter and personalizing it. :)

    11. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

  14. This is the most hilarious, and yet effective request for vacay I have ever seen! Nice job!

  15. I love it!!! If that doesn't convince him, I don't know what will. I've only driven through Vegas on a cross country trip over 5 years ago. My husband is going to take some convincing....I'll take some tips from your letter, haha.


Thanks for your comments! Hope you stop by again soon! XO!
