My Special Day
I took the day off from both jobs in honor of my birthday. Yes, I turned 29 once again and what a great day I had!!
I woke up nice and early and opened the presents that my parents sent. The box was sitting in my living room for a whole week and I didn't open it! Amzing huh???? I just felt like it would be special to open my gifts on my actual birthday. I wanted my day to be special and it was. I got some great gifts, one of them was an adorable coach purse, matching wallet and matching watch. SWEET!! I got a few other gifts and that was a great way to start of my day.
After I opened the gifts and cleaned up, I headed over to my friend Doug's house where he had breakfast waiting for me. How sweet is that?? I bet it doesn't mean a lot to most people, but when someone cooks for me, even if they were already cooking and they simply made me an extra plate, it means a lot. It was especially meaningful to me because I shared with Doug my issues of late with eating and how much weight I've lost and why it's been such a stressful time. So, we ate breakfast and headed to the pool.
This week I decided to check out the Rio since I was given a key during the WPBT! I love bloggers!!! Love Love Love you guys!
Anyway, so I went to the Rio with my friend and it was so cool to actually hang out with someone by the pool instead of going alone. I usually always go by myself and that's cool, it's relaxing and it's a nice break from reality, but sometimes it's nice to have a someone to chat with and it makes the time go by really fast. We had great conversation, it was hot as hell - I think it peaked at 108 and I was in the pool about every 10 minutes. There will be a pool review up sometime in the next day or two! Take a trip over to LasVegasVegas.com sometime to check it out.
Anyway, after we left the Rio, I headed home and showered and changed and went back over to Doug's house. We hopped on his sport bike and rode up to Red Rock Canyon - SO COOL!!!! I had a blast. I totally have a need for speed and it's a beautiful drive. Once we arrived, we parked the bike and started hiking. Yes - I said hiking. I've never hiked in my life. I never even knew what hiking was. I mean, I thought it was walking through the woods or something. Oh my god did that trip take zap the energy out of me. I was tired as hell. I only made it about half way up the mountain before I was practically hyperventilating and had to stop for about 20 minutes. We sat down on a fairly high cliff and took in the scenery. Gorgeous. I can't wait to do it again. Next time I'm blocking out the whole day and I'm going to make it to the top! That's my new goal.
The rest of the night was perfect too. I can't say enough about how great my birthday was.
So, as you might have guessed, I was tired as hell on Sunday. Oh my god - I had such a hard time getting motivated to go to the Rio. I mean, usually I look so forward to Sundays in the Amazon Room and this sunday was special because the 50k HORSE Event was in full swing and I sat in the bleachers of this event last year. I knew it was going to be totally chaotic and off the hook and totally full of celebrities, but I had a hard time getting my ass over there. Once I finally got there I was thrilled! It was so exciting. I really think the 50K HORSE Event should be the new main event. I mean, honestly, in my opinion, you won't see a one hit wonder win this game. There is WAY too much skill involved. Your average joe is not going to sit down and play in this event and if he does, he'll be annihilated!! So, check out my latest article from Day one of the Horse Event. I think it turned out pretty good. I had a great time and can't wait to see how it plays out. I'm rooting for Phil Ivey!!!!
As of 11 p.m. Monday night he's going STRONG!!!!
