So last week my hubby took me to Las Vegas for my 30th birthday (which was April 13th)!
I had NEVER been before, and we had a blast! Two of my bestest friends, Lauren and Becky, got to join us along with their hubbies! We stayed at our time share {the wyndham grand desert}, a "country mile" from the strip! One of my favorite things that I got to do was go to the Neon Boneyard where they have all the OLD neon signs that don't work anymore.

I wish I could tell you the history on all of these signs, but to be honest, I didn't even listen. I was too busy taking photos of them and getting some really COOL new textures to use! Hope you enjoy!

This one is for Erik (my husband) who is now addicted to playing Black Jack!

This one above was one of my FAVS. It was actually the old STARDUST sign, but they used the letters to spell out the word TRUST!

This one was actually used on an episode of CSI Las Vegas...which we watch EVERY week! How cool is that?

The funny thing is that Becky and Shane just celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary, so we had to take a pic by this sign.

(Lauren and Jerrod just celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary, but they didn't come to the boneyard with us)

Just to preface, I had to sign a waiver saying that I would not "publish" the photos that I took or, you know...sell them Rolling Stone...HAHAHA!!


  1. WOW~! WHat a great photoshoot- Looks like a blast! Glad you had a great 30th Bday!!!

  2. Sell 'em! They are too awesome not to! Just kidding, but really you can't?
    Jenn, the angles are amazing! It looks like something out a Texas Monthly magazine, was Las Vegas. Scratch that..a book! The colors are so rich and your right, the textures are eye-catching!
    Okay, and the pictures of Becky (and the ones with Shane) are GORGEOUS!!!!! I'll bet she loved them! They are some of the best pics I've ever seen of her. You really captured her.
    So wish I could have been there with ya'll!!!

  3. Oh, and my favorites are the black jack sign because it looks at first like you were on top of the building. My other favorites are the boneyards sign, the trust sign, free parking, and the one of you jumping. Haha...that's awesome! I totally want a copy to put in Kya's room so I can keep telling her "that's aunt Jenn" and she'll always think you're going to leap for joy when she sees you.

  4. Cool pictures! The first if my fav to Tawny!
