Things I'll (Kind of) Miss About Las Vegas:

Obviously, the people in the post below are the important things I'll miss about Las Vegas, but here are some of the less important things that I've enjoyed the past 2.5 years:

Most wonderful Mexican food EVER. I can't say enough about this place. It's on Spring Mt. and Rainbow. If you live here then you should go right now and if you plan a vacation to LV then be sure plan a meal here. It's worth the $30 cab ride from the strip.

Most wonderful sandwiches EVER. This is an east coast establishment that somehow made it's way to LV. You have to try the Bobby, the Cheese Steak and the Capastrami. Really, get all 3 and share. You won't be sorry.

I'll miss Waking up with the Wagners every day. They're a husband and wife team and they're dorky but I love them. Jake will miss Collete Wieland, a reporter that's on in the morning. He loves her more than me.

This is Town Square. We pretty much live here when it's not ridiculously hot outside. It's located just south of the strip. I recommend going here if you need a break from touristy Vegas things. Yes, it's just like every other Town Square in the country, but when you live in a place dominated by bright lights, gambling and shopping malls that are inside casinos, then this is a nice place that makes LV seem more "normal".

I'll especially miss our hikes at Mt. Charleston. I know the hiking in California will be a million times better, but Mt. Charleston will always hold a special place in my heart :)

I will miss snowfalls at Christmas.

The beautiful granite countertop that allowed for bread dough to knead and never stick.

Endless miles of mega-hotels that promised much, but took even more.

Oh, and I will miss Drew. Seriously. Please tell him to keep in touch and that our home is his home should he ever find his way to Texas.

And, I will always wonder about the beautiful girl on her journey toward her next client. I walked beside her for at least two blocks, stunned by her beauty, escorted by her 'john'. There was something I wanted to say to her, but knew that at that time it would mean nothing. I wish her, Peace.
