John and I - first time we've seen each other in 3 years!

The alarm goes off at 6:00 am and I snooze until about 6:30am when I wake up and check in……only to find I am already in boarding group B - 15 minutes after our flight is “released” for check in!! WTF?!?!?!  And not the first 30 in B, no I am like B43.  Grrrrrrrrrrr!  I think about going back to sleep since I didn’t get in until after 3am but figure I have a long day ahead of me so I need to get some work done! 

 

8:30 am rolls around and my phone goes off……it’s Melanie!  She’s actually up and working and managed to beat me on check in! LOL. She’s in the first A boarding group - WHAT??  Now I am really upset since she only beat me by like 5 minutes but obviously that made all the difference in the world!!

 

She picks me up in the afternoon to eat burgers at this Kilroy’s she took my friends Lisa and Michelle to before.

  Michael doesn’t have to be at the airport until 3pm so he decides to join us.  We get there only to find out they don’t serve food now until after 4pm.  It’s already almost 2pm so we opt to just do a PT’s Pub near the car rental return at the airport so Michael won’t be late.  We enjoy a quick burger special and say our goodbyes and Mel and I are off to Town Center again to stand in line for Blue Martini so we can stake out good tables.

  We have a little bit of time to kill so we go into Borders so I can try to work some more. 

 

4pm and we are the first ones in line at the Blue Martini. We were meeting most of my RLFs from work there as well as some of the TB’s for happy hour and eventually dinner.  We had planned to do the patio but way too hot so we opted for indoors with the AC on blast.  Pomegranate martinis please!  We decided since we might change the venue for the pre meet, we want to talk to the manager to see what they can do for us.  He was incredibly gracious and accommodating and hopefully Mel and I might see him for dinner or something the next time I am in town as he’s a newbie to Vegas and sounds like a bit of a foodie.  We talked to him about TravBuddy so hopefully we have a new recruit as well!  

 

My "real life friends" begin to arrive and I continue to enjoy more Pomegranate martinis.

  YUMMY!  There were only a couple of TBs at happy hour so it was really nice to see my my two worlds collide!  Most of the attendees were people were co-workers, a couple of my attorneys, and even a long lost friend who I hadn’t seen in about 3 years.  I will admit that some of my real life friends are on TB now or have been for a little bit and I am slowly getting them more involved and addicted.  Michelle (gemmi05),  Lisa (LisaBrook21), Kim (BundysMom) and John (JohnFutrell) are all people I’ve known for years who I managed to talk into signing up for Travbuddy.  Make sure to say hi to them sometime!! :D 

 

The more we hung out at Blue Martini, the more we are sure this is the perfect venue for our pre-meet in September.

Our escalator pose..HA HA
  When Melanie and I were talking to the manager, he indicated they have a live band and DJ nightly so we could be in one place and not even have to worry about leaving and finding a club to dance in if people want. 

 

Seems like the time flies and it’s already time to head out to Firefly’s for our dinner reservations.  We are losing most of my friends except for Qiana who is already meeting another group at the restaurant later for dinner so she’s gonna hang out with us first.  And another of my friends, Raul, is meeting us at the restaurant.  Mel and I run out of Blue Martini, late as usual but fortunately RJ and Amy are on their way so they can check in with us and my friend Raul is already at the bar.  Mel and I love Firefly's on Paradise and it's been awhile since I have been so I was excited to go back!

 

For dinner, we had RJ (RJster1982), his friend Amy (xxaimsxx), Melanie and I of course, Melissa (Melissa919),  Nancy (FancyNancy), and my friends Raul and Qiana.

The dinner gang!
  Melissa had two friends join at the end of dinner - Aimee and unfortunately, I did not catch the name of the other person.  John (JPChoi) abandoned us and I ended up using Melanie’s phone to text John with a guilt trip!! HAHA.  Melanie was intercepting the messages at first and then after she kept saying, “OMG, you are sex texting on my phone!” She eneded up handing me the phone to continue the silliness we started.  John and I are planning a trip to the North Pole now - I can't wait!! HA HA HA 

 

Hard to believe but it was already late pretty late and Mel, RJ, and I had to be up and out in four hours to catch our plane.  Mel and I had to make a pit stop at the store to pick up one last surprise for the meet and we could go home and sleep...for a couple hours maybe! LOL  We got to Mel’s house, printed boarding passes, played in TB a bit, she uploaded all my pics to CDs so I had room this weekend for more pics.

Qiana, me, and Raul
  I got to see Mel's office, complete with all the computers which was hilarious.  She's got her three computers (and actually a 4th one too I spotted) but barely any desk space! LOL.  Melanie's got a super nice house in Vegas and hard to believe she lives about 10 minutes from my house!  Wish we had known each other before I moved last year but she probably will move back to LA and would've abandoned me just like everyone else! HA HA HA.  We finished playing on TB (and noted that RJ already uploaded photos from dinner but what's worse, is Sal already commented on them just after landing in Kansas City - can you say "addicts"? Hee Hee).  It was time for a little sleep - or to at least try for a couple hours.

 

Hard to believe the day was “finally” going to be here - our first TB plane meet up…HA HA.
