Happy New Year!

So, we celebrated Christmas together at home this year. It was so nice to just relax together, watch the movies we had bought each other as gifts, and pretty much just be happy to not go to work. We went and saw the Blind Side on Christmas Eve (loved it!) and also saw Sherlock Holmes over break as well. After the craziness of the holidays and finals, we took a little vacation earlier this month. Thanks Southwest for having a sale in October and allowing us to book some very cheap flights! We spent a few days in Las Vegas shopping, sightseeing, and of course, eating at restaurants.

here's where we stayed:

Not a bad price but then they stick you with a mandatory $22 a day resort fee. But even with that it was still a pretty good price for the location (center strip, next to Mirage) and it was a brand new, good-sized room.

We are silly. One of the only pictures with both of us in it.
It actually might be the only one in focus.

One of the highlights was visiting Madame Tussaud's wax museum. It was pretty cool, although the gift shop sucked. Here we are with a few of our celebrity sightings:

In case you couldn't figure it out, from top to bottom:
Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones
Kevin shaking Al Roker's hand
Sarah with her plastic friend Britney Spears
Kevin blocking Angelina Jolie, because he wants Brad Pitt for himself
snuggling with Cameron Diaz
judging with Simon Cowell
and playing with... crap. I forgot who the trumpeter was. I just liked the disco piano.

And Kevin's temptation to gamble. A Star Wars slot machine.

The end.
