Vegas & Ramblings

I recently went to Vegas with 3 girlfriends (Annie, J Stelz and Eliza) and what did we do? We ate & ate & ate like a bunch of little hungry caterpillars. A little preview of the gratuitous food pictures that I took at Social House. This is only 1/8 of our meal. Scallops with soft shell crab in the foreground ("God's Fingers") and lettuce wrapped cod in the back.

I need to catch up w/ this thing. I need to post about our tour of Half Acre Brewery and Avec, picnic in the park for Labor Day, last Cubs game, trip to Indiana to see my family...and our plans for our upcoming 1 year anniversary trip. Tyson surprised me with plans to a place I've wanted to visit for more than 10 YEARS!

I need this:
