Hiya pretty people!
I am back home from Las Vegas after a hellish day of traveling yesterday.
We had a great time, the weather was lovely
We walked our bums off ( I wish actually) and ate some tasty food (as well as some not so tasty food - such is life)
Since it was a lot packed into a few days, I am gonna point form it for you :-)
-Hot sunny weather
-perfectly temperatured nights
-best filet minion evah!
-super cold brewskis
-frequently getting I'd ( This never happens here since the legal drinking age is 19, in fact it never happened the first time I went to Vegas last year. For a girl turning 27 in a couple weeks it feels good to young enough to be under 21! )
-Fremont Street ( aka Old Vegas) possibly my favorite time! This is the Vegas I always pictured. The light show in the dome was amazing. It was Queen, which is one of my all time fave bands, so I caught I little on video :-)
-Time away from dreaded day job
-Baby white tigers and gigantic lions in the Mirages Secret Garden
(literally having a cat nap - tongue out an all!)
...the best pro? Dan gave me my birthday present early! A new digital camera :-) I have a big one for jewellery, but was wanting ( I felt needing) a small one for trips etc. Now if you follow my blog you know I work in the photography industry, so this made me a happy girl!
-Ordering grapefruit juice for breakfast only to find out it was $7!!!
-windy weather stopped me from seeing the Bellagio fountain and the show at Treasure Island - yet again! Still have never seen either!
(both days no fountains!)
-rowdy partyers across the hall from us on the second and third night. For some reason they felt the need to party in the hallway at 4am. I mean, c'mon I knows its vegas but it doesn't give the excuse to be an asshole!
....and the biggest con of all:
- terrible flight home experience :
Our plane was an hour late even arriving to the gate, then when we boarded the attendant accidentally let a woman and her child on our plane who were not supposed to be on it! We were the last to board because of our seat numbers, which meant there was no room for our bags except the back of the plane.
Finally we take off, only to get 30 minutes in, and have the captain tell us they are having electrical issues and that we are turning around and heading back to vegas!
So, we were the last off the plane, because our bags were in the back.
Then we finally board the new plane ( last again) and get going - 3.5 hours later that we should have been. We got to the airport originally at 1pm. We landed finally at 9:30pm
A lot of traveling and time for a 2:20 minute flight!
Alas, I am happy to be home, even if it is raining. I am happy I was with Dan, Mr. Cool Calm and Collected, and I am happy be back at the bench with some new inspiration :-)
I'll leave you with a little Freddie :-)
