"Charge it to Skullcandy"

Eric, Me, Lucy and Brooke {Lu's sitter} on our flight back home
Sadly this is the only pic from the trip since my camera went MIA

A couple weekends ago Eric and I headed to vegas on a couples trip with a bunch of his BYU buddies and their wives (and one girlfriend) Eric goes on an annual guys golf trip with this group of guys. But all their wives are so great and so fun we thought it would be fun to do a first of what will hopefully be annual couples weekend.
The reason for the "charge it to skullcandy" title is cuz that was Eric's favorite line for the weekend. One of the couples was Jeremy and Kristen Andrus. Jeremy is an owner and President of Skullcandy (some of their earphones worn above by Eric) Skullcandy has a sponsorship with the hard Rock Hotel in Vegas so we got the official Skullcandy hook up all weekend, comped suites, luxury transportation, last minute MMA tickets right up front. So we did our share of Skullcandy name dropping to get what we wanted. Thanks Jeremy and Kristin!
SInce Vegas weekends are always fun and action packed and my poor poor camera was lost on this trip, after getting some great pics of everyone the first night :(
I will just share some highlights...
- number one highlight was bringing Lucy with us cuz she is still nursing and plus she's too tiny for me to feel comfortable leaving home but also bringing Brooke our sitter. It was the best of all worlds, Lu was there so I could see her and fed her but Brooke room was across the hall so I could drop her off for dinner, shows and whatever, and at night Brooke would put her down in a crib in her room then when we got home Id pick her up and move her to the crib in our room. so I could have her close all night. Thanks Brookie!
- Meeting up with everyone the first day our our favorite Mexican restaurant Pink Taco for shrimp tacos. Yum.
- Dinner at our very favorite Sushi Samba, omakasi meal was as always fabulous. Everyone agreed.
- Seeing "o" cirque du soliel's water show... (actually it was a little boring this time, I think they made some changes... and I dont think I would see it again)
- limos rides
-the guys "glory days" stories
-staying up late
- Guys golf outing on Saturday morning while the girls spa-ed and lunched at Canyon Ranch. It as fun to get to know the wives I didn't know very well a little better. They are all so great.
-A little stop at DVF with the girls at dessert crepes at the Palazzo
- trying to get on TV at the Hard Rock pool while they were filming Rehab and Real World. PS it is all scripted, I saw the scripts.
- Lounging at the pool a bit
- That MMA fight Skullcandy hooked up for us. Even though I have seen tons of them, this one was the bloodiest. Not a huge fan of that.
- Dinner at Mastero's Steakhouse, service was horrible, food was amazing. All got $100 giftcards thanks to Brock for complaining about the terrible service. But really 45 mins for bread?? After we had asked everyone who walked by for it? We were starting to think we were being Punk'd. It was that bad.
- Our tour of Vegas in the Party bus "the driver thought we were going where??"
"Booty Poppin'"
- farewell breakfast on our last morning
- Skullcandy gifts in our room
- Knowing Max and Ady were in complete heaven and well taken care of at my moms house. Thanks Meema!
and lots of fun conversation.

Such a great group and such a good time! Same time next year everyone?? Cabo? NYC? A destination wedding for Brock and AJ perhaps?
