Vegas and Grand Canyon Adventure

Grand CanyonA friend and I recently visited Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon! It was a fast whirlwind of a trip but we got to see some awesome things. Highlights included the Grand Canyon of course, but also watching the fountain show at the Bellagio and seeing some of the Las Vegas arts district.

The day we arrived I had an awesome lobster roll at Lobster ME inside The Venetian. Would love to see one of those in my local mall, but we’re too far from any ocean and I imagine the prices would deter most customers from becoming regulars. It was a super tasty splurge though!

My friend let me drag her to see Vegas! The Show and I spent the rest of our trip curious about the history of the town. I found out that our hotel was the largest in the world when it was built in 1969 and Elvis Presley performed 58 consecutive sold out shows there shortly after it opened.

This trip was only the second time I’d been in Las Vegas with the first trip way back when I was 13 years old. The strip has changed completely since then, with many towering skyscrapers replacing the old classics. I wonder how different it will look another 23 years into the future!



ShermanHi everybody! I’m Ms. Pitt, your host here at this funny little blog. After not writing anything for nearly a year, it seemed like a good time for a reboot. A little about me, I am 36 years old and live about a mile outside Minneapolis, MN with my husband, Jon, and pup, Sherman. We’ve got odd senses of humor, but generally keep out of trouble. We married in 2004, at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, and it was the perfect event for us – geeky, whimsical, and TONS of fun! It’s great to go back every year and reminisce.

I’m a raging optimist, except when I’m not. I’m introverted and a little too practical, and I sometimes take things too literally – but just for fun. It’s like a nerdy game I play in my brain. I’d like to become a recovering perfectionist someday. I love great food, entertainment, and technology, too!
