What could be better than a girls trip with your best friend? How about a girls trip to Sin City, Las Vegas? Cha-ching! Priceless!
Every now and then (and never soon enough), us two, crazy, fun loving FreeUrCloset besties, get to embark on our own little adventures. We’ve been BFFL (Best Friends For Life) for over two decades, and have shared tons of road trip memories (the good, bad, funny and fugly, lol).
This time, we treated ourselves to a looong overdue trip to one of our favorite places on Earth — Sin City.
Phoenix gridlock soon opened it’s way to beautiful desert landscapes.
First we encountered the all too familiar Joshua Tree Forest,
… and then, we found our selves surrounded by rubbles of boulders on both sides of Highway 93, looking eager to topple over and cause major road block. We were even able to capture the “Snoopy Rock” … if you don’t believe us, you can read more about it here !
Funny, we should mention that this must be a Snoopy (not to be confused with Snooki) capital because not too far from here, we’ve come across this sight:
Yes, Three Snoopy characters sitting on top of a rocket? No joke, here’s proof! We were also sad to see that our fellow New Yorker (from Queens) closed his pizza and rest stop at Nothing, AZ. We were really hoping he would turn it into ‘Something’, AZ …
The road went on and on mostly like this:
So we drove mostly like this:
Natasha and I went on and on, entertaining our selves (and oncoming traffic) mostly like this:
We past a Mariachi band, and a few odd little restaurants/gift shops, even a little place in Wikieup, AZ, that is famous for it’s “Rattle Snake Omelet”:
But when the topography changed to what resembled the Grand Canyon, we knew that our destination was less than an hour away!
Ah … decisions, decisions:
First the road took us over the Hoover Dam, via Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge ↑ , however, we felt cheated (and had to make a pit stop, hihihi), so we did the touristy thing. And it is true, no matter how many times we’ve passed the Hoover Dam, it always feels like the first time, and leaves us in awe.
Of course, this being a fashion blog and all, I couldn’t disappoint you. While my partner in crime used the amenities, I coerced an unsuspecting onlooker (who wasn’t checking out the Dam, wink wink) and asked him for a few pictures.
Honey, we’re home!
See you next time, with a few fun outfit posts in ‘Fabulous‘ Las Vegas, NV!
