Viva Las Vegas!

Well we are on the flight home so I thought I'd update my blog with a few pics. I had my National Sales meeting again at The Palazzo/Venetian in Vegas. Always a great time as this meeting is all about reward and recognition for a year of hard work and success. We have a couple days of meetings, then what we like to call "prom night" which is our black tie awards night followed by a day of fun and various activities to choose from. I always visit the beautiful Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian (the world's largest spa at 140,000 sq feet) but next year I need to venture out for some of the other fun stuff people did. I heard about sushi making classes with sake tasting, helicopter tours, flight simulator, etc. After our full day of fun and relaxation the last night always features a headliner band that is a top-secret surprise. Usually the rumors start flying throughout the week but this is the first time in my Genentech experience that NO ONE had a clue until she walked out onstage! Katy Perry was a complete surprise and a fabulous entertainer! Our 11 year old daughter is seriously annoyed that we had a private Katy Perry concert!

and with Jean and Laurie

Katy Perry was fantastic!

Tommy flew in to join me on Wednesday night and we enjoyed a much needed fun weekend of R&R together. We caught 2 Cirque du Soleil shows, "O" at the Bellagio and Zumanity at NewYork, NY. We walked along the strip and shopped on Friday and Saturday and the weather was so nice we were able to grab lunch outside at Cabo Wabo! What a great time! 

The strip at night is pretty cool to see

Chinese Year of the Dragon - he blew fire every so often!

Now we are on the countdown to our REAL vacation to Sandals St. Lucia in 26 days for a belated 5 year wedding anniversary trip! Can't wait!
