I just have some great news that I wanted to share with you – I will be going to the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender this April! This will be my first VLV, and I have been way too excited beyond words to go since I initially got into the vintage/rockabilly style. It has everything any retro enthusiast could ever hope to have under one roof – rockabilly music, dancing, great shopping, vintage cars, retro bowling, burlesque – I could go on and on. Making the trip just was not really in the cards for me or my boyfriend recently, so I was really hoping to make it in 2013. Disappointing, but I tried to hold on to the fact that I could go in 2013. Well, I don’t know what happened today, but my boyfriend made all of the plans for us to go, from flight to hotel room to tickets, and got it all in the span of about 45 minutes! I was so excited I could barely speak. He was talking about going to Disney World in the next few months with his family’s Disney Vacation Club points, which is something he really wanted to do, as he loves anything Disney. He knows that Disney is not really my thing (I find it a little too “fantasy” for me), and he said he wanted to do something I wanted to do as well, and started planning for Viva. I couldn’t believe it! We are going to be there for the entire time, minus a few early events on the Thursday because my boyfriend has classes later in the afternoon that he does not want to miss (He is going for his second bachelor’s in computer science), and that’s fine. But after that, we are there the whole weekend. We will be staying close by – no rental car needed 🙂
All I need to do is save my money so I can (of course!) have some decent spending money while over there. I also plan on bringing a huge box of my business cards to network with other bloggers, retailers, and rockabilly/vintage enthusiasts. And naturally, I will be taking pictures and reporting on everything straight from Viva. I want to give you such great reporting that you feel like you are there as well!
April seems too far away, but it is working its way here. It is 89 days until Viva Las Vegas – I will be counting down every day!
