laurann and i have been talking about planning a tanning trip for a few months but never actually made a plan. we decided at the last minute to take advantage of the tail end of my spring break and go to las vegas for the get a tan. seriously, our main goal was to get a tan. we stayed at southpoint spa and casino and really liked it. the pool was nice, and we spent the majority of the time out there.

after sitting in the car driving all day and sitting at the pool (and maybe eating some treats), we needed a little exercise. we put on our gym shoes (and aged ourselves at least 10 years) and went to the strip. we parked a few hotels away and walked. feel free to laugh at us because we totally laughed at ourselves, but we did feel a lot less lazy after getting a little exercise.
beautiful blooms at the bellagio
my sandwich was so huge i couldn't even open my mouth big enough to eat it.
highly recommend the s'mores cheesecake at cheesecake factory. hence the need for the walking shoes.
dinner on the way back home. i might be the last person on the planet to try this stuff. i basically died. it is so amazing. i tried the coconut the week after, and it was amazing! if i'm not the last person on the planet to try it, you HAVE to try it. you'll thank me later.

the worst part of the trip was about 10 minutes out of las vegas. we hit terrible traffic. we drove 12 miles in 2 hours. luckily there were 2 of us to entertain each other. once we got outside out of that, the rest of the drive home wasn't too bad.
the weather was beautiful, and the weekend was so much fun. #operationgetatan will definitely be happening again.
