I Think I’m Too Old For Las Vegas

If you live in California and drive to Las Vegas, you know that this sign always means that you're on your way to a weekend of fun!

This past weekend, Jason and I went to Las Vegas with family and friends to celebrate my littlest brother’s 30th birthday party. Well, lots of my family and friends bowl on a league and they were having their “sweeps”, or final games of the season, in Vegas. They’ve done it for years, and while we haven’t gone in quite a few years, it’s always a blast.

But here’s the problem with Vegas. My 40 year old brain shuts off and my 20 year old brain takes over. I forget that I’m too old to stay up gambling and drinking and partying like a rock star all night. I forget that I need to eat 3 meals a day, and that I need to drink a ton of water. I forget that I need 8 hours of sleep. I forget that when I do party like a rock star, I can only do it one night, not two.

So my 20 year old brain took over this weekend and coming home on Sunday I was exhausted. Now, nearly a week later, I’m still trying to catch up on sleep and recover from a weekend of too much partying and not enough of doing anything healthy.

It was a blast, a huge blast, and I loved every minute of it.

But next year? I think instead of hanging out all night with the 30 year olds, I’ll be heading to bed at 10:30 with the other old people.

  1. Oh, bite your tongue, no one is too old for Vegas!! All you have to do is midday, excuse yourself and go take a power nap.

    To be honest, my last trip to Vegas sucked because not only was I having the same feeling but I had a throat infection and was in so much pain I couldn’t even drink. Boo!!

    Cute pics!

  2. Listen, when you go to Vegas, you have to blow it out. Stay up all night and sleep during the day!
