Vacation wooo

I'm flying to Las Vegas tomorrow for [personal profile] augustphoenix and [personal profile] royalarchivist's wedding! I'm excited but right now it's "finish up last-minute things at the office OMG" time and it's making my head spin ...

But I'm looking forward to it. This is the first honest-to-goodness traveling vacation [personal profile] ratzeo and I have taken together, and we are splurging accordingly. Along with the wedding, we're going to be busy with fancy food (reservations at Le Cirque, yum!) and watching shows (front row seats for Phantom of the Opera and Cirque du Soleil's O, OMG!). All that and a 5-star hotel to come back to each night, whee.

I think it'll be good for me to take a break. Normally around this time of year I take Labor Day week off for a "stay-cation" at home. For various reasons, I didn't do it this year, and I think the lack of rest and recharge time is wearing on me. Not that Vegas is going to be particularly restful; but I think the mental break will do me good. Plus, y'know, I'll be celebrating with friends and watching shows, so that's worlds better than going to work.

I'll leave you with this amazing recipe for coffee cake. It really is awesome. (Just ... do yourself a favor and knock 1/2 cup of sugar from the cake ingredients, and 1/2 stick of butter from the topping. There's no way to make this healthy, but this way you won't feel sick after eating a couple of pieces.)
