Happy hump day, everyone! I’m just over here settling back into my home after spending the last 2 days in Vegas! If you read my post yesterday, you know I was pretty happy to get out of the house while they re-piped our sewer line. Now I have a pile of dirt as a backyard. Which is now covered by an unexpected blizzard. Cleaning Jackson’s paws every time he goes outside is going to be a real ball of a time.
In brighter news, Vegas was a blast. I left Monday morning and got back Tuesday evening, all for a quick work trip with Cassy from Fed and Fit. In case you didn’t hear about it already, I teamed up with Cassy for her newest and biggest project yet: her Fed and Fit Book! This book will be filled with 175 squeaky clean paleo recipes PLUS a 28 day guide to food and fitness for ramping up your healthy lifestyle! I teamed up with her on the fitness portion, so I created all the workouts for the program, all of which you can do with no equipment! Anywho, we needed to get some fitness photos together and get some photos of different movements for the workouts, so we both hopped on a plane to meet with our publisher in Vegas and got to work right away.
After a few hours of photos, it was time for the best thing in the whole world: curry. You need to understand something about me…I f*cking love curry. Not just like, “oh yeah, curry is like, my jam” (in Olivia from the Bachelor voice). Curry is not just my jam, it’s what I want to eat for every meal. For my very last meal. So when Cassy told me about a hole in the wall, off the strip, but totally well known place called Lotus of Siam, I was 1000000% in. And it was all I was dreaming about the entire day. Once we got there, I quickly ordered a thai iced tea, which was so sugary and naughty and delicious and then I decided on the crispy duck panang at a spice level 3 (I asked for mild and he recommended it). Well, it was an intense 3. But an amazing 3. The curry was so freaking flavorful and you could tell so much kaffir lime had gone into the dish, so even though it was super spicy, it was calmed down by the citrus flavor. It was epic. No seriously you guys, I’m already planning to go there when I’m back in Vegas in June. The only part that sucked was they gave me a gigantic spoon to eat with. So every time I would put the spoon in my mouth, it would burn my lips. There was no getting around it. But it was worth every burn. I could have eaten another order of that stuff. Absolutely. I’ll be dreaming of that place for weeks.
After dinner, we quickly hurried over to the Luxor to see the Blue Man Group. When Cassy and I decided we needed to go to Vegas, she instantly said we should see a show. And since the last cirque show I saw made me fall asleep, I thought either the BMG or the Jabbawockeez would be fun to see. BMG did not disappoint. I thought it was awesome, funny, interactive and left you feeling like you got your money’s worth. After the show, I instantly wanted to wikipedia the guys and find out there story. How did they get started? Has it been the same guys over the many years they’ve had the show? What do they look like? How much do they make in Vegas? Do they party hard? Do they make up their own stuff? I want to know all the things. But I have sh*t to do, like write this post. And drink this cocktail.
