Vegas!

Oh Yeah. We're cool :) This is my roomate and I with the giant Opti-free tear drop at the Optometry convention in Vegas. It was a lot of fun...got lots of free stuff, sat by the pool, ate a ton of food, and got to do some sightseeing. Here's some highlights....

Contacts and Figure Skating, two of my favorite things! Turns out the olympic silver medalists in ice dancing are the spokespeople for Acuvue Oasis contact lenses so they made an appearance at the conference. I was very excited about this. However my friends were not, so I made the trek over to see them by myself on Friday. They gave a little talk on the wonders of Acuvue Oasis lenses (I actually have friends who say they are the best contacts they've ever had) and then they did an autograph session. So yay I got an autograph!!

Yesterday we decided to brave the heat and go exploring......it was like walking in an oven (it was around 110 degrees that day) but it was worth it to get to see the hotels and stuff. Here's a view down the strip.......

And below is a view of the water show at the Bellagio.

After the sightseeing we went to a Cirque du Soleil show called Mystere which was amazing. Some of the costumes and props were kinda creepy though and there was definitely the potential for nightmares after watching it. But the stuff they can do (the bending and swinging and flipping) is really really cool. Anyways I have some more pictures on my flickr site if you want to check them out. It's nice to be back in Chicago but I really have to work my butt of this month to get ready for boards. I kept telling myself that after Vegas I would start studying hard...and thats now....so I've gotta get to work :(
