Dear May 22,

An all-day meeting with a client does not make a happy Val.

Dear Academy of Country Music Awards

Thank you for giving me an excuse to:
  1. Go to Las Vegas for the weekend (22hour road trip) with the girls
  2. Harmonize to N*sync in the car
  3. Stay in the MGM Grand and have some quality pool time in 107-degree weather (I love tan lines)
  4. Dress up fancy and attend the Awards show in style
  5. Be in the same vicinity as Nicole Kidman, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Jewel, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland (new fave) and Reba McEntire...just to name a few...I feel like we all connected
  6. Eat an In-N-out cheeseburger (animal style) and a strawberry shake
  7. Reconnect with my inner cowgirl
Best weekend trip for under $100 of my life.
So far.

*Of course, NONE of this would have been possible without the hookup from Noelle's sister's best friend who works for CBS and gave us the tickets. Thank you sister's best friend, thank you Erica, thank you Noelle (and thank you Laura for driving 12 hours - getting us there and back safe-n-sound).
