Happy Friday everyone!!! Woohooooo! We made it. The weekend is near!! We have a few plans with our friends this weekend, but nothing too crazy and I am a-okay with that! I’m sure this weekend will be a little less crazy than last weekend in VEGAS!!
Our college friends invited us to go out to Vegas for the weekend with them so ofcourse, we said YES! We can’t say no to a good trip with great friends! 🙂
When we arrived, we grabbed an uber from the airport and actually got stuck in the parking garage at the airport in the uber for over an hour because they closed down the airport and all surrounding roads because Trump was in town and actually leaving on Air Force One. While the wait was super inconvenient, we did get to see the motorcades come in and the plane take off so that was kind of cool.
But, the absolutely highlight of my trip was running into THIS guy while we were just casually walking to lunch one day. If you don’t know (are you living under a ROCK?), this is Peter from this season of The Bachelor. I was a total fan girl and ran right up to him, introduced myself and asked if we could take a picture together. He could not have been nicer and so genuine. I didn’t get any spoilers, but I am totally rooting for him! 🙂
Friday night we got to see the water fountain show at the Bellagio, which is always so fun!
Then we went to dinner at the Sugar Factory.
It was yummy and crowded, but quick for a good meal before our evening plans!
Next, we headed over to the Mirage to see the Beatles Cirque Du Soleil show and you guys, it was SOO phenomenal. Obviously the music was so good, but all of the acrobatic stunts were out of this world. There was always so much going on, you didn’t know which way you should be looking. I highly recommend seeing this show if you are ever in Vegas. It was absolutely amazing.
The girlies with the beetle bug.
Jonny and me!
Us and our sweet friends!!!
The next morning we had brunch at Primrose.
It was super yummy and we realized Biden had breakfast here one day earlier… just missed him!!
So I am not sure if I have told you all about my new obsession with playing Texas Hold ‘Em Poker. Like it is my favorite thing ever. But, I have only played in games with our group of friends… never at a casino and definitely not in Vegas. But, I figured I should give it a shot to say I tried. Jonny and I signed up for the poker tournament starting with 34 players at 3 different tables. Well, we both made it to the last table and placed 5th and 6th overall! Ofcourse, only the first 4 players won money… so we were SOOO close. But I was proud of myself for being the last girl standing and making it all the way to 6th place. I had a freaking blast and would have played in 10 more tournaments, but they last about 3 hours soo that is a long commitment. LOL.
After a little more gambling (we did not win any money… :)). We made it to sushi for dinner.
Soo yummy! and it was happy hour so a lot of our food was half priced!
After dinner we headed over to Jimmy Kimmel’s comedy club for a stand up show. He obviously wasn’t there, but the acts were pretty good. Not my favorite, but it was a fun way to end the night.
After the show we headed back to the hotel, Tropicana to call it a night. The hotel was actually very nice and not as pricey as the big resorts (we have stayed at the MGM and the Venetian before which are both nice, but can be pricey). My lovely husband booked us a 6am flight home Sunday morning, which was great in theory. LOL. We did get to bed at a decent hour, but when we were walking through the hotel at 4am with our luggage to get to the uber pick up spot, I was AMAZED at the amount of people who were still up gambling and partying. I am too old for those kind of late nights and lack of sleep these days. 😉
We had a blast touring Vegas, losing all our money, and hanging with our sweet friends!!
After Europe, Arizona, and Vegas, I need a traveling break…for a bit. We have a couple trips planned to Georgia, Chicago, and Austin, possibly Denver, but… where should we go next? I am dreaming of a tropical vacation on a beach somewhere… but like not too far because I am tired of plane rides. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Tell me what trips you have taken recently, or are coming up soon, or tell me what your dream vacation destination would be if you could go anywhere right now!!!
