Getting Settled Into Vegas & This Week’s Goals

 It’s officially been a little more than a week in Vegas for me. I’ve been busy getting settled into Vegas.

And that means some touristy things as well. I’ve actually never had a photo next to the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. And to make it even more Vegas cliché, I might add that an overweight Elvis took our photos.

But besides all the touristy things one can get up to in Vegas, you might be surprised to know that really Vegas isn’t “JUST” the Strip. That is really the main reason why people come to Vegas. The Strip.

The majority of people who live in Vegas rarely go to the Strip. Vegas outside of the Strip, is kind of more so small town-ish feeling. I mean the traffic can be crazy and so can the lines in the Costco.

I have NEVER seen a Costco so crowded. And just so you know… the lines go on and on for ages.

My lovely man, Johan sent me a housewarming gift. What an awesome man. Love him so much and miss him.
Also found an amazing running path right in my neighborhood.

I’m Thankful For…

Today is Thanksgiving.

When Thanksgiving comes around every year, I find myself thinking about everything I am thankful for.

I am thankful for… 

1. My life. That I get to live, love, and experience everything that I am living.
