Greetings from Las Vegas! I'm here on Day Two of a much-needed girls trip...yay for vacation! To celebrate, today's Five on Friday list is dedicated to my top 5 vacations:
ONE | Los Angeles/San Francisco (2013)
My big trip last year was a West Coast adventure with some great friends - it included my first visit to Los Angeles, plus a road trip up the iconic Pacific Coast Highway to spend a few days in San Francisco. Along the way, we squeezed in a day trip to Disneyland, a tour of the Warner Brothers Studios (including the Pretty Little Liars set!), a surfer day in Venice Beach, an overnight in Santa Barbara, and tons of delicious dining experiences, including my first trip to In-N-Out Burger and dinner at Sur (of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules fame!).
TWO | Japan (2007)
THREE | Florida (2014)
FOUR | Greece (2010)
When someone offers you a free trip to Greece, you say yes! A few years ago, I was working at an all-girls high school and my boss asked me to be one of the chaperones on the school's annual summer trip to Europe. I would have been psyched to go anywhere, but I was absolutely thrilled when I found out I would be going to Greece, since that had long been at the top of my travel wish list. This itinerary was jam-packed - we saw all the historical sites in Athens, but also had time for the beach and more relaxed vibe of Santorini. With 50 American teenagers by my side, it really was the ultimate girls trip!
My first (and only other) trip to Vegas was a BFF vacay with a gal you all know well...my co-blogger, M! This vacation was amazing because of course we had lots of quality gal talk while we took in the casinos, pool, and bar scene, but it also stands out because we had our first live encounter with a very special man that weekend...our celebrity crush, Michael Buble! M and I had only one long weekend to go away that worked for both of us, so when she looked up Michael's tour dates and saw that he was going to be performing in Vegas that weekend, our decision was basically made for us. Yes, we selected a vacation destination based solely on Michael Buble's tour schedule haha...but honestly, what more of a reason did we need to go to Vegas?! I'm excited to be back there again this weekend for another fantastic trip!
Hopefully Lady Luck will be on my side this weekend...do you have any recommendations for things to do in Vegas?
