"they say the neon lights are bright on Broadway..."

after the baptism and casual reception, we all paraded over to downtown nashvegas to get wild on the legendary Broadway street. the christmas lights that decorated the trees set the mood, and it felt wonderfully odd to have our hubbies with us on this trip. don't get me wrong, i adore an awesome girls trip, but when my hubs was there beside me to take in the touristy night life while holding my hand and making fun of some skeezy characters, it became a reliving moment of our college days. i miss those carefree days, but i wouldn't trade that for what i have now. no ma'am. no way. guess moments like these are what makes the past that much sweeter. here are some pics of us while bar-hopping along broadway...we make our way to the "graham central station" bar where it consisted of four levels and a lot of stairs that were not good for the inebriated souls such as myself. as soon as we walk in, we make our way to the closest bar top, and the guys order our drinks. with said drinks in hand, we march up to the next level when our eyes make full contact with the cage. oh yes. i said, "the cage." i take one look at KM and YB and we all say out loud, "let's do it!" KM hands tre my camera and *click*, the memory is documented with lots of sketchy facial expressions and laughs to capture our true feelings of the moment.admittedly, this floor level scared us so we found the stairs and move up another level. it was almost like the more we climbed up, the closer to our own little heaven we got because we found ourselves at the karaoke bar. score. entertainment at it's finest. with chairs, a close bar, and a manageable crowd. me likey. so we get settled in when all of a sudden we look up a see some dude with copious amounts of eyeliner do a fairly decent rendition of cher's "if i could turn back time." sold, sold, and SOLD! it was fantastic. fishnets and all.later in the night after ample liquid courage, KM and i agree to go up there and sing with YB's brother. we sang a variety of different songs which included, "baby got back," "love shack," and "ice, ice, stacy (err, i mean, baby)." full frontal and posterior gestures were also incorporated, thank you. then the DJs came out with props and the appropriate choreography for timberlake's SNL song, "dick in the box." pure awesomeness and hilarity. they start playing every golden song out there including jay's anthem: "i'm on a boat." here is a picture about an hour before closing time of YB performing the limbo. the gals got some mad skills, i tell ya!the wee hours of the morning are upon us now, and we wanted to make one last stop at "the stage" before the last call for alcohol was announced. so we walk on over and dance front row and center all while bouncing off our hubbies and singing our sweet little hearts out to some U2, sublime, hank williams, journey, and other classics. i love knowing every word to every song. makes me feel well traveled in each musical genre. overall, it was an awesome night with our bestestest. 3:30 in the morning never looked so good on us. ACK!
