I think travel is super important. I think its a million times more valuable in life then things. Seeing the world is my ultimate dream, but I suppose I’ll start here. In the good ole’ USA. I’ve never been to Vegas & boy was I in for a treat.
It all started as soon as we got on the plane. There I was, in my leopard coat, leather backpack, really sleek black jeans and converse, looking cool as ever. AND MY HUSBAND AND I WEREN’T SEATED TOGETHER. Idk what it is about planes now where they separate everyone traveling together, and buying their tickets together. I was in row 39. THE LAST ROW POSSIBLE. & I was all, tight. I have a window. NOPE. Because my seat was the last possible seat on the plane I was the only window seat sans window. So I plugged in my headphones, got my book out, and read. I read the whole thing. I love this series. If you’re interested, I’ll put a link for them on Amazon.
You’ll love it more if you read them in order. My husband in row 9 sent me a drink. THANK YOU JON. I married a good one girls. Find yourself a good one.
All this is not why you came here. Sorry. I get really off topic when I’m anxious. Anyone else have anxiety?
Welcome to the Adult Playground where you’ll be up for 4 days straight & try to see as much as possible. I’ll insert some photos that summarize my first day. (We spent Friday-Tuesday there)
- Me & My wonderful hubby. 2. The strip. SO MANY LIGHTS. 3. Me outside The Mentalist. (WHICH WAS NUTS. Idk how he knew that stuff!!) – Also, that sky is a CEILING. yep. Currently inside of a mall type venue. 4. I just thought this was funny. Take it as you wish.
Unfortunately none of the people taking photos for me were photographers. BUT. The Bellagio was awesome. There was the world’s largest chocolate fountain, the gardens (the peacock is all made from flowers) & the lobby itself was pretty rad. Idk where I was bossing out with my winnings, but I needed to include this. So you can get me. The real me. lol.
ITS BRITNEY BITCH! That was the one thing I really wanted to do while we were there. LOVED IT. I really enjoyed it. If you’re a Britney fan, and ever find yourself in Vegas between now and Dec. 31st when her residency ends, you should totally see her.
That night we also saw Mat Franco a magician who was the winner of America’s Got Talent… last year? Don’t quote me. BUT HE WAS AWESOME. No pictures allowed, cause… magic. But also a show I really [needed] to attend while I visited. Outside the Mat Franco Theater I met Maleficent and the Evil Queen (Grimhilde).
In case you haven’t already noticed, I tried to maximize my glitter output while in Vegas, because my Michigan town doesn’t really do that. Most people here wear hoodies & tennis shoes. WHICH IS UNACCEPTABLE. Okay? I wore these beautiful Vera Wang Lavender flats until I couldn’t stand it anymore cause my fitbit said we walked an average of 23,000 steps a day. Which is kind of a lot when you’re wearing flats.
The Venetian was kind of amazing. THERE IS A RIVER IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS PLACE. & you can hire a little man to row you through it in a cute little boat that props has a special name, but I don’t know what it is. OH. BTW. All these places I’m naming are casinos & hotels, & show venues, & like buffet locations, & like, anything you’d wanna do, ever places.
Here we are! At the iconic Vegas sign. It was pretty emotional because we were in Vegas VERY shortly after the mass shooting at Mandalay Bay. There were beautiful tributes, memorials, flowers, & loved ones leaving items for lives lost. So fucking tragic. Idk what is wrong with the world. I kind of love this picture tho because it shows that I’m a real human behind this computer. Which people often forget. I’m so truly sorry if you have a loved one that was lost in this sickly tragic event.
On a happier note, Mandalay Bay has an AMAZING Aquarium & if you stick around long enough in wonderland – you’ll see how crazy I am for animals. 1. Lion Fish. 2. Me in a sea tunnel and the fish swim all around. 3. THE biggest shark I’ve ever seen in an aquarium. What I loved about this aquarium specifically was that they had the LARGEST aquatic animals I have EVER seen in captivity. It was INSANE. The sea turtle was at least 3 ft. wide, and the shark had to be 8-9 ft AT LEAST. I loved it. I probably could have stood there all day.
The last day of our trip we went to the Hoover Dam. I kinda hated it. If I’m really honest. It just wasn’t that exciting. BUT my husband loved it. (He’s an engineer.) I mean, it is an amazing engineering project and its massive. But, not that exciting. We walked over the bridge & then we walked over the top of it. That’s lake mead in the bottom right and the white line is calcium from when the dam almost flooded a million years ago. [I would be a terrible tour guide – dates are not my thing]
Its hard to sum up a trip to Las Vegas in just a few short paragraphs, but we stayed up all night, ate at a Bellagio Buffet, saw a Comedian, won a ton of money & paid for our whole trip which was really cool & best of all – made some great memories. Till next time.
