On a side note, I also learned that the journey to your destination can kill you, or at least come close to it. (Perhaps I should coin that adage?) We not only hit a massive amount of traffic on the way to Vegas, but we also hit a snow and ice storm on the way back that caused us to be stuck amongst other travelers on a mountain pass for hours. (This was in Southern California if you can believe it.) Well, I would prefer not to relive that traumatic ordeal, so here are a few pictures of what I wore to Las Vegas, taken at our first rest stop, the iconic Peggy Sue's Diner.
Can you believe that this dress was only $10? It certainly was a bargain, and so was stopping by Peggy Sue's Diner to take a glimpse at the gigantic jukebox that graces the entrance, not to mention the kitchy collection of dinosaurs outside the diner. We just popped in to use the restrooms and take a look around, but it was much more fun than your average truck stop. Had we been hungry, we would have definitely eaten lunch there.
So perhaps you are wondering why I am so dressed up for the roadtrip portion of our journey. Well, that all has to do with the destination. The night of our trip to Vegas, we had tickets to see Britney Spears' show "Piece of Me" at Planet Hollywood, (much to my husband's chagrin!). Just in case we arrived late due to traffic or a freak snow storm, I wanted to have my most fabulous self ready for a quick bite to eat and then the show.
I have a lot of guilty pleasures, but the music of Britney Spears just might be my biggest. I've been a "fan" since her first album came out, but I've never seen her in concert. Her show in Vegas seemed to be my big chance to see Britney live. What did I think of the show after waiting all these years? Apparently, Britney doesn't dance as much as she used to and for a lot of the show, her dancers just push her around on various props, but I guess that was good for me because it allowed me to take some cool photos for your enjoyment! I suppose that in this case the journey and the destination both had their pros and cons, but that's life!
