We've finally booked it!  We're on our way to Las Vegas for some fun in Sin City.  We're also planning to renew our vows by Elvis.  We're doubly happy that Veronica and her boyfriend, along with a girlfriend of mine, will be joining us on this fun and retro journey.  Veronica and I are planning on having a girly afternoon for me to try on some of her dresses for "the big day"!  Stay tuned for future blogs with pictures!  After talking about it for so many years, I can't believe that we're actually doing it.

Husband has resigned himself to the fact that this potentially tacky journey will happen, so he's getting into the spirit of things.  Poor guy.  Many have suggested he go retro by donning a cool outfit - a la Grease or similar for the ceremony.  But a leather jacket in the heat of the desert seems like cruel and unusual punishment!  Besides, it's not really about that.  The surroundings will be distraction enough.  After all, the core of what we want to do is about being grateful to have each other and to celebrate 16 years of wonderful marriage.

We're now in the process of creating an agenda.  I'm sure there will be plenty of eating, drinking and laying around by the pool.  In the evenings, we are mulling over a show that features crooners, a traditional ventriloquist act or the Vegas hit - Cirque du Soleil's "O". 

A ceremony at Viva Las Vegas Chapel
It looks dreamy and tacky!

We still haven't finalized the location for the vow renewal.  I had originally wanted 'Graceland Chapel'.  Hey, if Jon Bon Jovi got hitched there, that's good enough for me!  But after doing a bit of research, 'Viva Las Vegas Chapel' looks good as well.  I'd love any recommendations you might have!  We're counting the days...

Congratulations Carol! Sounds like it's going to be a trip to remember. And it's great that Veronica and boyfriend will be going along with you. What fun! ;-)
