Trip Updates - Vegas Bachelorette and Laguna Beach Anniversary

I'm now two-thirds of the way through my travel-gauntlet summer. I'm having fun, but I'm exhausted!

I have tons of travel tales and pictures but I thought I'd share two recent trips...
Las Vegas for my Sorority Sister's Bachelorette Party and Laguna Beach for our 3rd Anniversary.

First, Las Vegas!

8 of us spent 2 fun-filled days in Vegas. We stayed at the Venetian (love that hotel). We went out to The Bank at the Bellagio one night and Marquee at the Cosmopolitan the other night. I really liked The Bank, but did not like Marquee (it was way way too crowded and the multi-level stairwells were a pain). I also had a lot of fun at pool party at the Venetian during the day.

Here's the Gamma Phis that were in attendance.

(Clearly I didn't the memo about which way to turn)

Second, our 3rd Wedding Anniversary in Laguna Beach.

Before we left we exchanged gifts (as usual)

The 3rd anniversary is the "leather anniversary" (that makes me laugh for some reason).

So the Mr. got me a leather travel jewelery case.

And I got him a leather grilling mit.

Then we drove down to Orange County and checked into the Ayres Hotel, had champagne and strawberries, and then got ready for dinner.

We had dinner at Studio at The Montage in Laguna Beach.

Amazing gourmet food! Seriously to die for. And the view was one of the best in the world.

Then the next morning we had a couples massage at The Ayres Hotel (we stayed there because a sweet friend gave us a Groupon for a free night and a couples massage). I really enjoyed the massage but I don't really understand the point of a couples massage. It's not like you talk or hang out during it, ya know?

Overall, we had a very wonderful Anniversary! Thanks for all of the well wishes for us on the blog and twitter.

I have more pictures and travel tales to come soon, so stay tuned!

We did a couples massage on our honeymoon and I thought the same thing.
Really overrated...
You look so pretty in all your dresses!

Ha my husband and I did a couples massage on our honeymoon and he thought it was weird. He expected we'd be more "coupley" ... but it was a first for both of us so now we know.

Love how creative you were with your leather gifts! Perfect!
