Total States traveled from to meet here: 4
Total Nights we have been here so far: 5
Total Nights I will remember forever and hold tightly in my heart: 5
Burley and I were supposed to leave town this morning but thanks to the horrible team over at US Airways (No, they did not pay me to mention them) we have been blessed with one more day here in Nashvegas!
So tonight we will be ringing in the New Year with the people we love and I couldn't be any happier.
(Part of me thinks my family may have called the airlines and told them to screw us over... I don't think I would care even if that were true).
And now... In closing... Here are a few pics I have taken along the way.
Happy New Years, Thriftarians. Let's do right by 2012.
