It has been such a crazy week! We left Friday to come home to my parent’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. Then on Sunday we flew out from here to Vegas and back today. We went with Kane’s best friend and his wife and we all had a really good time. Today’s post is going to be all about our trip and then I’ll post about Thanksgiving and this weekend later. My sister is flying in tomorrow and then we head back on Sunday.
Here are the pictures from our week in Vegas:
One of the first things we did when we got to Vegas was walk around some of the casinos. This picture is in the The Cosmopolitan. This is one of my favorite places because it’s so modern and covered in diamonds!
Another picture from the Cosmo 🙂
We stayed at ARIA and loved it! When you walk into the building, it instantly smells like vanilla. It’s a nice change from the stale smoke smells of other casinos. This picture was taken in front of the waterfall wall at the ARIA.
This was the view from our room. We had floor to ceiling windows and the view was amazing.
Ready for a night out!
A random picture of Kane on a sky bridge 🙂
Christmas decorations in front of the Venetian! I love this time of year in Vegas.
With Shanda at our favorite Pub.
Our new sunglasses 😉
Of course we had to go to a show while we were there. We decided on Zarkana and it was a really good choice. We had perfect seats and the show was very entertaining.
In our room before the show.
One of the Zarkana characters took a picture with me…
…and then asked if he could take a picture of us…
…and then stole my phone and took random pictures of himself!
He gave my phone back to a random person and then everyone else proceeded to take pictures as well. I probably have about 20 on my phone!!
After the show at our favorite pub again 🙂
On our last full day there, we checked out the dolphins and animals at The Mirage.
The trainers with the dolphins.
Over all we had an excellent trip! My favorite part that I unfortunately don’t have pictures of right now was when we rode the New York, New York roller coaster four times! It’s actually a really good coaster and we had so much fun.
Story of the week: Our friend’s brother told him to bet $100 dollars on number 18 at a roulette table. If he won, he got 10%, if he lost, his brother would reimburse him the $100. We went up to the table all thinking what a stupid idea this was. He put down the $100 and we all stood and waited….and then the ball landed in the 18!! We couldn’t believe it! We were all screaming and everyone was walking over to our table wondering what had happened. He ended up winning $3600!! We did this on our last night there so it was the perfect way to end the trip! This is something that will probably never happen again and I literally still can’t believe it happened.
To make up for the days of being thankful that I missed, I would like to say that I’m very thankful we were able to go on this trip. We had so much fun, did a ton of shopping and got to experience Vegas with some good friends.
I hope everyone is having a great week! 🙂
