Girls Weekend Number 1

I am so excited. Today 3 of my favorite college friends are making their way here for a "girls getaway." They were kind enough to come to me so I would not have to travel in my highly pregnant state. My travel time will be about 25 minutes to the Venetian hotel on the strip. We have a room for the night, reservations at Bouchon, and plans to stay up talking till the wee hours.

So I am going to be "out on vacation" this weekend. Yipee!

I have yet to hear from Angie, my "winner." The prize will be some freshly baked double chocolate Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. I broke down and called corporate headquarters to find out where I could buy a case of the frozen dough. I haven't been able to find any place in Vegas that sells them. They told me there was a distributor here in Vegas from whom I could purchase a case. 

With the cravings at their peak, I set out immediately for the industrial section of North Las Vegas to find the distribution warehouse of Otis Spunkmeyer. Lauren and I found the warehouse, purchased a case of my FAVORITE cookies and hurried home to bake some up. 

I am anxious to share some of these yummy treats with my winner. I hope to hear from her soon. 

Well I am off to get ready for my "girls getaway!" Have a great weekend everyone!

Haha!! I am laughing so hard right now. My mom (Sue Fiero) and I are coming to Vegas this weekend, and staying at the Venetian too! We are coming out tomorrow and plan to visit Bouchon while we are there. Maybe we will run into each other at some point, that would be hilarious! Have a great weekend!!

Sounds wonderful, and you will obviously have a great time. There's nothing better than a sleep-over with your buddies, no matter how "grown-up" you become...

I live in Utah and you can buy the frozen Otis cookie dough at Sams Club. You have to go back and ask the bakery, they don't keep them out but you can buy a box.

I am so jealous. I love the idea of a girls getaway. I need to convince my hubby that he can handle the kids for a day and a night or two. Have a great time!!

Before you know it, you'll be up in the wee hours but you'll be "chatting" with Noble not your girlfriends :-)
