Viva Las Vegas! Our 3rd Wedding Anniversary Trip

Last week, Adam and I took our 3rd wedding anniversary trip and I surprised Adam with the location! So if you were wondering how that went down, essentially I told him that we were a) taking an anniversary trip and b) he would need to pack "fancy" clothes for dates. It wasn't until the moment we got to the airport and printed our boarding passes that he knew we were going to Las Vegas! He was so stoked! 

Our first day consisted of taking care of checking in and a little bit of time for relaxing and checking out the hotel. We stayed at Palms Place Suites at the Palms Casino--our Studio Suite was perfect for us! It had a great comfy and soft bed, modern decor, a state-of-the-art kitchen, hardwood floors, a large bathroom with dividers (ps. if you live with your significant other, you understand the importance of having a bathroom divider i.e. keeping the really private stuff private whenever you can--and leaving more to the imagination!), a dreamy jacuzzi bath, and a waterfall shower. 

We spent our first day hanging out and watching cable for a bit--really low key! We actually don't have cable or TV at home, so it is always cool to enjoy some television when we are staying overnight somewhere! Adam put on a jacuzzi bubble bath for me and I enjoyed a glass of chilled pinot grigio from the comfort of my personal, oversized bath rub! The next morning, though, we decided to explore the city!

"5 Tips for Healthy Eyes" a Guest Post by This Brunette Blogs | Adovia Mineral Eye Gel

{Image Source}
Working a 40 hour week and working as a blogger full-time basically means I work 70-80 hours a week! Needless to say, I do not get as much sleep as I really should. I have a lot that I want to accomplish in a day, so that means when it comes down to choosing between 1 more blog post and 1 extra hour of sleep I choose the blog! I am sure you've been there, right? Not getting enough sleep is common, and it is pretty obvious when you have crazy dark circles under your eyes like me!
