what do tigers dream of when they take their little tiger snooze?

Folks. Seriously. How am I 29 and just NOW experiencing Vegas?!
It. Was. Amazing.
And I have to admit... I wasn't the best blogger while there... I didn't take a lot of photos. With the photos I do have, however, I thought I would break this post into the good and the bad. Here we go....

Vegas - 'The Good'

- Going in December proved to be a wonderful time of the year. Not as crowded as (I hear) it usually is and it was decorated to the hilt with Christmas decor!!!

- Guy and I won big our first day. We found this little 5 cent slot machine that continued to shell out the cash. First $56, then $158, then $87, etc etc.

{our magical little machine.... a hidden gem for sure!}

- The food. Ohhhhh the food. So many amazing options! We ate like kings the entire weekend!

{our Friday night dinner spot in The Bellagio}

- The cowboys! I've never seen so many 10 gallon hats (is that what you call them??) And these aren't your Texas cowboys.... they're your Montana/Wyoming/Utah cowboys... a breed I've never seen!

- THE SHOPPING. As plentiful and high end as everyone says. I contained myself....since going to Vegas was our Christmas in of itself but I had to get a few things.

{Anthro ikat bowls... perfect to spice up my white plates for a dinner party!}

Vegas - 'The Bad'

- Remember how I said we were winning big? Didn't last long. We were up a few hundred the first day.... lost it all the second day. You know how everyone says 'bet on black?' Yeah, notsomuch.

 - The smoke. Granted, it could have been WAY worse and I thank the amount of oxygen they pump into those casinos but it still was funky and not in a good way.

- No Cirque shows! Apparently we arrived when most of the shows are on their holiday break before the Christmas and New Years weeks. BOO.

So there you have it... a ridiculously fun weekend with my favorite person. I will most certainly be back to Vegas in the near future. Want to come????

I love Vegas. My favorite thing to play is War. I get intimidated by everything else. One time I turned $50 into $1800 in 15 minutes playing War. And I spent/gambled it all way in 24 hours. It was a great 24 hours.

oh you KNOW i am always game to visiting vegas. but see i rarely gamble because i hate losing. and yea the cig smoke makes me want to do the tacky hooker outfits you see on many of the women (maybe not so much in december, i dunno) but it's vegas and vegas is grand.

glad you had fun!
