frugal feathers: vegas baby




dress ~ kirna zabete for Target, thrifted: $6.99
tights ~ Marshalls: $1.99
shoes ~ thrifted: $5.99
belt ~ came with another dress: free

as you are reading this, chances are i will either be sleeping or drinking or eating. our little sister celebrated her 30th birthday on wednesday, so chris and i decided to make a surprise visit to her and her husband in vegas. she has no idea.

the main reason we are visiting is, of course, to see my sis and to celebrate her birthday. however, i do have an ulterior motive. you see, chris has never been to vegas, and all of his friends keep talking about an infamous bachelor party there this summer. i decided that the first time chris went to vegas would not be for his bachelor party. it just doesn't sound good...it sounds, perhaps, like the plot of a hilarious movie.

so we're in vegas, and even though i'm writing this post ahead of time, i can only assume we're having fun.

do you have big weekend plans?

have a great one!

  3. She is going to be so surprised! That sounds like such a fun trip. I've never been to Vegas but I don't blame you for taking Chris before his bachelor party :)

  5. Those tights are super cute! And have a ton of fun in Vegas- when I was there, I didn't do a ton of gambling, but the food and drinks and shopping and shows were amazing! Everything is so...sparkly!

  6. YES! I love that you guys made a surprise visit to see your sister! How fun! And that's hilarious because the reason Joe and I are going to Vegas in March is well... we shall say our 2 year anniversary as bf & gf... but he has an ulterior motive as well... he has never been and loves to gamble! Oh well, I'm down for the fun! :)

    Also, that dress is adorable! I can't believe you thrifted it for $7!

  7. How fun! Surprise trips to Vegas are always a good idea:) My first trip to Vegas was for my bachelorette party. When I went back with my husband, it was definitely a different trip!!

  9. oh yes, shades of "The Hangover". Hilarious movie and not to be repeated. Let's see is Chris by chance a dentist or a school teacher? hahahaha. Good plan, Megan. Get him there under your conditions and hopefully all will be fine. See you on Monday for "I.M."!
