Las Vegas

Nate, the hubs, is a huge fan of the credit card points. Just some background on Nate, if he can't brag about how cheap he got something he won't buy it. Now this applies with everything except vacations. He is like a kid in a candy store when it comes to vacations. He would spend A LOT of money on vacationing if I said yes. Our friends seek him out on vacation help because they know that Nate lives for planning vacations. He likes to always have a vacation on the horizon. We have been to many places since getting married but there is one place that we always go back to and that's Las Vegas. We used to average about 2-3 times a year prior to having Owen. Nate loves to play poker and I love shows of any sort. (Dance/Concerts/cirque de soleil/comedians/etc).  I used to love 3 card poker and slots too but not so much anymore since we only have one income, one kid, and one "on the way".  I also love laying by a pool (and reading) and we all know Vegas has amazing pools. So here we are, on a flight to Vegas. I have counted all the trips I can remember and I am up to 10 Vegas trips. Pretty sure Nate is like 15ish. I know, its disturbing to think how much money has been blown. Anyway since we have been saving for our adoption and Nate is all about a Vegas trip I told him that if he could get airfare and hotel paid for via credit card points then we could work it out. We usually go with friends or family but this time we ended up solo. Looking forward to the trip but anxious (more so than normal) about leaving Owen (that's another post). So I will let you know how the trip goes maybe even post a few blogs by the pool;)!
