Before the trip, there were some issues where people made me feel like I wasn't going to enjoy my trip. Thank goodness it didn't affect it too much. In fact, despite the little bit of awkwardness I felt, I think something good came out of it. Its healthy to be honest about your feelings and speak your mind rather than have people play a guessing game. I know that I often joke that the world revolves around me but it makes me wonder if people really truly feel that the world revolves around them. Whatever it may be, I say screw with it and do what makes YOU happy. If people choose to moan and groan over situations rather than try to do something about it to change it, then there is nothing that I can do about that. Like I usually say, "sounds like a personal problem to me"!
Anyway... when it came down to the trip, I had such a blast! The "party train" tolerated my loud and annoying self, somehow. Big props to them for being able to do it and having such great sense of humor.
We stayed at the lovely Bellagio and we certainly had a front row center view of the water fountain that gives a remarkable water show every 30 minutes. Breathtaking and beautiful... I loved it!
I just took these pictures real quick and don't feel like looking for the pictures online.
(found this online in brown. mine's "vanilla")
Its simple and SO me. I love it and it does everything I need a purse to do.
I've never been a HUGE fan of COACH or any of the other brands because I would much rather pay for high quality leather than the same amount for canvas. I also am not fond of signature monograms. I like my bags plain and simple and this is just perfect for me. What I love most about this is the feel of the calf skin leather. I usually love lambskin leather a lot more... but I am not going to complain about this one. *swoons* Thanks Baby!
Went back to our room for the water shows. Found ourselves at the Wynn buffet. I hate to admit but it wasn't my favorite in Vegas. I had high expectations but was left pretty disappointed. Oh well... first time for everything and I wouldn't know that I didn't like it if I didn't try it, right?
Hustled and got into Tryst and cut everyone in line at XS... without paying a dime. Whoever told us that everyone has to pay and there are no special treatments were lying or weren't so lucky. I've been wanting to check out XS for a long time now and this is the first time I actually made it (I hate and usually refuse to wait in lines). The club itself was beautiful and I had so much fun dancing in the water... but I wasn't enjoying the overcrowded dance floor so much. I would much rather be at a smaller club or lounge with better music and more room to dance. Oh well... I hope I don't come off as I am complaining because I'm not. I had a great time and glad that I went. I just think I would rather check out other clubs the next time I get a chance.
The next morning, we had to say our goodbyes to Vegas. After packing, we went to check out the new city center at Aria. BEAUTIFUL place! I didn't realize how much I loved interesting architecture. The place was amazing and I fell in love with everything there except for the prices on the mochas. Ugh... my first $7 cup of WCM... but it was pretty darn good.
We had lunch at the famous Pink's. I'm not a big fan of hot dogs... but this one was pretty damn good. I know it doesn't look so appetizing but it really is YUM!
Chili fries... with onions (my own addition). Mmmmmm!!
We went back to Aria after lunch and did a little gambling before hitting the road. I lost $16 on the slots after about 3 minutes and called it quits! I've never had luck in gambling... sucks. Sam loves craps (the name of the game still makes me giggle) and so I joined him at the tables. I got there and thats when he started coming up. It was his turn to roll and the older men at the table were cheering him on and telling him that the lady next to him must be his good luck charm. He agreed. He bets small... but after the end of his rolls, he cashed out and was $463 richer. Whoot! I was a happy camper and he was a lot sexier when he wins! HAHA... totally kidding!
We ended our trip over dinner at a pho restaurant in Placentia. This is how I ended it:
It would take me forever to go through all the details but although the trip was mellow, the laughing was nonstop. I love my party train and really look forward to our next trip together.
P.S. I'm not allowed to get into details on the most memorable parts because what happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, but the memories live on in my heart. Always.
