Is it just me, or is it so hard to get back into blogging after a vacation?

John and I went to Laughlin to see Gary Allan perform.  This was probably the best concert I've ever seen (granted, I've only been to Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, N'sync, and the like, LOL...actually, I did see Tom Petty, that was pretty awesome too).  Gary Allan has a better live voice than he does on his albums.  I'm definitely a little obsessed now.  Unfortunately, there isn't much info on him on the internet.  I do know he was married three times, has three daughters, and his 3rd wife committed suicide a few years ago :( So sad.  

SO close to stage!

The crowd - small & intimate

Seriously, he's awesome.  I highly recommend everyone going out and purchasing his "greatest hits" album.

John and I had an awesome time in Laughlin in addition to the concert.  We both love to gamble (we did get married in Vegas, after all), so gamble we did.  We're also both very cheap, so we don't gamble often (probably once or twice a year on vacation and once or twice a year when we go play Bingo).  We budget money for it and if we lose it all, that's that.  We're usually pretty good at making our money last and not losing it all the first night.  This particular vacation, we made money.  We had $140 gambling money and ended up buying all our food, souvenirs, onesie for Cami, drinks, a ride on the boat taxi, and more with that and managed to leave with $150!  I won $100 on blackjack and John won $136 playing Keno.  We also continually turned $5 into $20 on various machines.

First night out - clearly I didn't feel the need to get dressed up

Eating breakfast on Saturday

Beautiful river that Laughlin sits on

Sex and the City - this machine ALWAYS takes our money!

We won $600 the night before our wedding, ever since then we've done nothing but lose

Love my hubby

As you can see, we had a ton of fun in just the two nights we were gone.  We missed Camdyn like no other, but it's very healthy to have husband/wife time every now and then.  This is the cuteness that we came home to:

New outfit from my mom and sis!

Happy 4 month birthday baby girl!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

I'm glad you guys had an awesome time in Laughlin. I love it there! My Dad goes like, every weekend. :)
I also love how you didn't dress up because, dude, it's Laughlin, that's the last place you'd need to look hot whilst gambling. lol
