In just THREE more wake-ups I'll be getting ready to head to the airport for an amazing vacation.  I haven't been on a vacation in almost four years!!  There has been a long weekend here and there, but not a run away for almost a week and have a crazy good time with a bunch of friends kind of vacation.  In fact, I have never been on vacation with so many people all at once ever.
This trip is going to be to Las Vegas to celebrate the Bachelor and Bachelorette who will be getting hitched in THE Tulsa wedding of 2014.  (Sarah and Kyle's wedding was even in Brides of Oklahoma Magazine!!)  They are one of the most genuine, sweet, thoughtful couples I've ever met.  In the picture above you get an idea of how many people love this couple and that's not even everyone going.  I mean, you have to be great if you can get all of these busy people to coordinate their schedules for your weekend, right?  

Now that you've met the guests of honor, let's meet the other players along for the ride starting at the top and working our way down and to the right:

LB & Andy - I love these two!  They are another adorable engaged couple.  LB is Sarah's Maid of Honor.  I've really enjoyed getting to know her over the last few years.  She has the rare award of actually making me blush once. Doesn't happen often, but she made it happen.

Janet & Spence - These are Sarah's awesome parents.  They are SO MUCH fun!  Normally you'd be a little weirded out by the bride's mom coming to the bachelorette party, but not Janet, she's a blast!

Erin & Adam - Love these two!  Adam is hands down the world's best winker.  Erin was Sarah's college roommate and happens to be Andy's sister.  We like to keep it all in the group. She's a sweetheart.

Nick & Kristen - Nick is Sarah's brother.  I don't get to see these two very often so it will be fun to see them too!

Holly & Cole - Holly is Sarah's Matron of Honor. She and LB have put so much hard work into organizing this trip!  It will be fun to enjoy the fruits of their labor.  I don't know Holly well, but it will be fun to get to know her better on this trip.

Ma & Thomas - These two handsome devils can be so much fun. Ma is an accomplished ballet choreographer and Thomas is a successful attorney that I've known since before he started law school.  Thomas is one of Kyle's fraternity brothers from their undergrad days.

Calvin - Calvin is also a fraternity brother of Kyle's.  He also happens to be a coworker of mine AND a law student so I get to see him quite often on campus.

Susan & Paul - Susan is one of my nearest and dearest girlfriends in the whole wide world.  She's been there for me in my darkest days and for that I'll be forever grateful.  Sarah is such an INCLUSIVE kind of person, she invited my two Vegas friends to join us in the weekend fun.  Susan's husband, Paul, is from England and teaches me all kinds of filthy British sayings!

Heather & Paul - Paul is Sarah's other brother.  He and his wife are always the life of the party.  They do THE cutest Christmas cards with their growing family too.  It's going to be so much fun to cut loose with these two!

Lauren - I've never met Lauren, but I've heard she and I are the most likely to flash strangers together so I already feel like we'll be fast friends!

Bill - need I say more?!  We don't do sappy, but he's my person.  My go to person where I can be myself, don't have to have a filter, can be 100% me, and he keeps me grounded.  We are known to be "wildly inappropriate" so us being cut loose in Vegas without any responsibilities to drive or work the next day is going to be beyond wildly inappropriate!  I also can't wait for my bestie worlds to collide when Susan, Kerri, and Bill are all together. It's going to be great!

Kerri - Kerri is my other nearest and dearest girlfriend in the whole wide world!  She's been my crisis call at 1am on a couple of different occasions.  I can always count on her!  We haven't seen each other in over three years.  We have been counting down our reunion since there were over 100 days to go, so the fact that there are only THREE more wake-ups is so amazing.

Megan - Megan is a hoot too.  Little known fact about Megan, she doesn't have a heart.  KIDDING!  But really, her tear ducts must be broken because girl didn't cry one tear during Fault in Our Stars while the rest of us were sobbing.  She's my fellow single gal on this trip.  I can't wait to see what all these wing women and wing men come up with for the two of us.  She says she's going to live vicariously through me (the wilder one), but I plan on seeing how much mischief I can get her roped into!

Wow, this post started out with the intention of being a short little blurb to explain where I'll be when I run away later this week and it turned into a super long post introducing you to all of the pretty people I will be hanging with this weekend.  As my brother says, beautiful people have to stick together.  Here's hoping we make it out the other side alive!  I can't wait to get this shindig under way!
