Slice of Life - Viva Las Vegas!

School has started up once again and I can’t say that I am not excited. I am not looking forward to all of the work, but I love being in the classroom!

While working on my ever-growing list of assignments, I can’t help but look back at my winter break experiences. Having recently turned twenty-one, my mom planned a trip to Las Vegas! I knew this trip was going to be amazing, but testing as well because we were not only taking one of my grandmas, we were taking both! After surviving a quick flight and one very aviophobic grandma, we made it!

We spent three days exploring, playing slots, dancing, shopping, and most importantly laughing. I was in awe as we took in the water show, the strip at night, and the beautiful hotels. My favorite place was old Freemont Street. I met up with my roommate from freshman year and had the time of my life. I became closer to my mom and learned that my grandmas are two of the wisest people I know. In the end, I wouldn’t have rather went with anyone else!

This week’s lessons:
Appreciate the people in your life, especially family. Be smart, live in the moment, and make your life worth looking back upon. Cheers!


  1. What a beautiful trip with the beautiful people in your life. You have made lasting memories.

  2. Welcome to slicing! I agree ...appreciate the people in your life. How sweet that both grandmas could join you! (I also learned a new word...aviophobic!)
    Thanks for sharing your story.

  3. I went to Vegas for the first time for a conference last fall. I had not left the hotel for the whole week since everything I needed was in the massive hotel that seemed like a mall/hotel/convention center and the days were really busy, but someone told me I had to see the water show, and I was so glad we ventured out to see it. I am glad you got to experience this with your family.

  4. I really enjoyed reflecting on my day too. I think reflection is an important part of learning! Great story Jordan =)
