Buddy Pass Nightmare//

Day One//Las Vegas Journey
Thursday afternoon Dusty and I hopped on a flight from Birmingham ((AL)) to Phoenix ((AZ)) and soon thereafter ended up stuck in Phoenix with only the hope of catching a flight the following day. We planned the trip a couple months ago, cancelled and rescheduled to visit a Maryland high school pal and to meet up with dp’s Mom && brother there to support Miss Alabama ((Miss AL is brother’s long term girlfriend-Crazy, right?!))  in the Miss USA pageant at the Planet Hollywood Hotel && Casino. Anywho, back to the traveling hell story//After calling up an overpriced shuttle, from airport to the Days Inn in Tempe we set out on foot to a brewery couple blocks down and was delighted with the home made beer selections.

their peach brew was a fav

Oatmeal Stout 

the college and graduate housing around the Tempe area was fantastic, look at those neat curtains//

after a night of hanging at the brewery, running into a girly from Alabama which whom I’ve taken several classes with, and stumbling back to the hotel we made it early to the airport Friday morning//but not early enough. We missed the 6:45 am one and everything else was over-sold so we ended up making a last minute decision to rent Toyota Prius and drive the 6 hours from Phoenix to Vegas through the desert.  It was crazy beautiful! Many more pictures to come in next post//
