"Soft-Core Friday" - Super Bowl in Vegas: Round 2

Happy Soft-Core Friday to you all! I missed last week because I was too busy trying to shove way too much stuff into a far too small carry on bag so you can imagine how much time that took! Why was I packing, you ask? Because it was time to head to Vegas for Super Bowl again this year...YAHOO!

I had initially declined Blog Boy's invite to do SB in LV part 2 due to logistical issues but as the good travel karma Gods would have it, it ended up working out perfectly and I was able to join in the fun. And fun it was!

Personally, I think this year was even better than last year because we had a smaller group to maneuver and plan around and more time for great food, good fun, and lots of gaming.

I would be afraid to count the number of calories eaten or amount of vodka consumed but I like to pretend that none of that counts since there wasn't a lot of sleep to be had so I needed the extra fuel and liquids right?  I'm sure it all balances it out somehow, or at least that's what I'm telling myself.

The best part of the trip was getting to hang out with Blog Boy. There is just something about him that makes me so happy to be around him and we have so much awesome good travel karma between the two of us, I know there is never anything to worry about because it's all going to be awesome and fun. He really, truly is one of my favorite people.

I also got to see some other friends that are local to the area including my darling Yve from Lazidaisical so that was truly the icing on the cake of an already great couple of days. Vegas is great and all, but it's the people I get to see while I'm there that really makes me love going there now.

Today's SCF song is a little bit of a departure from the norm but I had the privilege of seeing Santana up close and live on this trip and although I was a casual fan prior to seeing the show, I am full blown starstruck now! That man can play a guitar like no one else and it was such an awesome concert! Enjoy his genius!
