It’s a lot like going to your first junior high dance.
You obsess over what to wear. Change your outfit at least three times. Tease your hair out until it almost defies gravity or just threatens to fall out all together. And at the end of the day, you just pray that when you show up you’ll actually see somebody you know, so you don’t have to hide out in the bathroom until it’s all over. :)
Yea it’s a lot like that.
In FACT, if they ever decided to pipe “Love of a Lifetime” through the speakers on the trade show floor, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference at all! :) Last year was mine & Justin’s very first time at WPPI. And to say that it was just a tad overwhelming, would be the understatement of the MILLENNIUM! I think anytime you put 10,000 photographers in one place, let alone Vegas, it’s going to be pretty scary. :)
So for any of you guys that are headed out to Vegas, we just wanted to post up a couple of the places that we’ll be this week so you’ll know where to find us. That way we can all be overwhelmed together!! Or at the very least, sway back & forth and hum “love of a lifetime” until we feel better. Y’know whatever strikes our fancy at the time!

We actually flew in yesterday, so I’ll just leave you with a little recap of our Valentine’s Day. First off, we are staying in a suite at the totally lush The Signature hotel at MGM Grand, which prohibit both smoking AND slot machines…in Vegas!! Talk about your rare find! We walked in and the whole place smells like a spa. Definitely the kind of home base we’re going to need for this week! Here’s the view from our suite:
We went out for dinner last night for Valentine’s Day and our first course was the tiniest food I’ve ever seen! So we did the only you could do in a situation like that….took a picture of it! :)
And here are our super successful attempts at a self-portrait. I swear we’re professionals!
And last but not least, we found out yesterday that Josh & Beth’s wedding was the Valentine’s Day feature on the LBB!! I hope you all had an awesome Valentines!!
**We’re going to try to blog every day that we’re out here to keep you updated on all the debauchery, so stay tuned for that! Tomorrow we’ll be revealing the winner of our “see the light” contest and our lucky 2,000th commenter!
