Final Vegas Baby! post

In my last post I promised to show you the two reasons why I traveled to Vegas.

Remember this post? The Marriage of Thibeault and Yamuna.

Thibeault (my cousin François' son) and his wife Yamuna had been staying in Vegas while Thibeault trained for his career as an Ultimate Fighter. Since they had come all the way from London I figured the least I could do was travel to the next state to visit them.

We had a great time. They are one fun, gracious, intelligent, couple.

Thibeault, along with Audrey,(another Ultimate Fighter and his best friend) were being filmed for a French documentary. Lucky me, I got to tag along while we attended a club where the final filming took place.

Yamuna, Audrey, Cleo and Thibeault.

Lots of posing and silliness.

Notice my makeover, compliments of Yamuna. (She did a great job, and made it fun, too.)

The filming was rather difficult to deal with. Luckily the cameras weren't directed at me too often. (Yes, I might show up in the background crowd of a French documentary)

Yamuna, Thibeault and Audrey.

What a great time! So glad I made the effort.

(And no, I wasn't tempted to gamble even once. Always makes me feel like I'm throwing my money away.)

Cool visit! That sounds like a lot of fun. I always hated casinos, but I've never been to one in Vegas. A guy I used to work with was into the ultimate fighting. That is some crazy stuff.

What fun! Wow is all I can say about the Ultimate Fighting. One tough young man.
I too go to Vegas but don't bet so much else to do and money too hard earned to waste.

I would feel the same way if someone I knew had traveled that far. Plus what a fun place to meet up! Your makeover looks great. Now you just need a short black skirt like all the other girls and you'd think you were all sisters! Great trip Victoria.
