Viva Las Vegas!

So, I had a blast in Vegas.  It was a much needed relaxing getaway.  We went with our friends, Ron and Erika.

We left on Friday morning via direct flight through Delta.  Flight left on time and we arrived in Vegas on time.  Got luggage right away, and headed to the hotel, Monte Carlo.  We tried to check in, but our rooms were not ready yet, so we all headed to lunch at Serendipity 3.  I had been craving a crab Caesar salad from there since Thanksgiving.  Ate there then headed back to the hotel.  Our room was ready, but Erika and Ron's was not yet.  So, we all headed to our room, and Erika and I changed into bathing suits to head to the pool and take a nap while Kurt and Ron played some craps.  We stayed there a few hours, having a drink and napping.  Perfect lazy afternoon.  Went back to the room after that and showered, then found Kurt and Ron. playing craps.  Got ready and then decided to head to dinner at another great place, McCormack & Schmidt's.  Stopped and got some champagne after that and headed back to the room for the night.

Day two, Saturday, got up and used the hotel gym.  After that, headed with Kurt out to explore and then had lunch at Margaritaville.  Headed to The D hotel after that to buy tickets to a show that night and ended up playing some blackjack at Four Queens and poker at Golden Nugget.  Had dinner at Landry's, then headed back to The D to see Raack and Roll, which was super amusing.  Back to the room for the night.

Day three, Sunday.  Got up and worked out, then headed to my fav outlet mall while Erika hung at the pool and Kurt and Ron gambled downtown.  Ended up with some amazing purchases from the Tory Burch outlet and used a coupon for some awesome savings at the Gap outlet.  After that, Ron and Kurt picked me up and we went and picked up Erika for lunch at Diablo's in Monte Carlo.  Fun place.  That night, we had dinner at Sushi Robu in Caesar's, then headed to Pure, a nightclub there.  Did not really like the atmosphere there, so we headed back to Monte Carlo to hang at a lounge there called Ignite.  Had an absolute blast there, closing the place down.  Back to the room for the night.

Day 4, Monday.  Got up and worked out without Kurt, as someone was still drunk when he woke up, LOL.  And hungover.  After that, met Erika and Ron in Caesar's and had lunch at La Salsa.  I went after that to Fashion Square Mall, where I got some replacement foundation at the Chanel counter at Nordstrom's and some t-shirts at Zara.  Also got a quick pedi at this place in the middle of the mall called LAKA Manicure Express.  Got an amazing mod purple color.  Kurt picked me up after that and we chilled, then headed to dinner at Bubba Gump's.  Awesome food.  Next, Zarkana at Aria.  Show is a Cirque show and was amazing talent.  We were harassed quite a bit by the performers before the show.  One of them stole my purse and I had to chase them to get it back and another one made Kurt stand up and stole his seat next to me, LOL. It was a lot of fun.  Back to room for the night.

Day 5 was our travel day home.  I woke up and worked out, then packed everything up to leave.  BOO.  The weather was beyond amazing while we were there.  Perfect sundress and flip flop weather.  And, I came back to 28 degrees.  Ugh.
