Have you ever been to Vegas?
David and I made our way to Sin City for 48 hours this past weekend. What brought us so far for a weekend you might ask? Some awesome friends of course! We were invited to share and celebrate in the wedding of our friends Andric and Amanda. It was a fun trip for so many reasons. First, our friends got married!!!! What is not great about that. We stayed at a dump of a hotel which allowed for great stories to follow. We didn’t gamble but we did eat a lot. We learned how to play craps and I sort of want to try my new skills out at Foxwoods. We saw naked Cirque du Soleil and my goodness are those performers strong. We walked the strip and “people watched” to our hearts content. We drank some interesting cocktails and danced ironically. We saw impersonators and water shows and listened to great music. We did not get enough sleep. But, we had a good time! Vegas in 48 hours is intense and exciting and hypnotic and not nearly enough time to see it all. But, definitely a great place to celebrate our friends!
Landing at sunset in the desertWhat you might not be able to tell from this picture is that the women with the blond hair is Holly Madison. That is right, she went to the same performance as us! A random bachelor in drag finds his way to Andric. Singing Michael Jackson. I love how casual the gamblers are about this.
Ugh our unfortunate hotel. We wanted to save money so we went to Circus Circus otherwise known as the mistake in the desert! Sheesh what a sad hotel room that was. Next time we will absolutely splurge and stay at the Wynn.Mornings in Vegas are quiet. Teacher clock still woke us before much of the city. The Wynn was so pretty inside.
Interesting horse outside of the Wynn. Clearly, having come from Circus Circus this hotel left an impression on me.
