Vacation is over, South Florida. After two weeks of back-to-back long weekends, we are finally returning to our same ol' routine for a while at least. In case you were elsewhere visiting ungrateful relatives, here is what you missed over the weekend:

We were a bit annoyed we weren't allowed to photograph Lady Gaga's performance at the Fontainebleau on New Year's Eve. Especially since everyone and their mother probably snapped photos of her performance. Click here to view the full slide show -- sans Gaga.
