vegas

This is the one and only "scenic" photo taken on my weekend trip to Las Vegas. 
I should also note that it was taken in the warmth of a cab due to the freezing cold weather. 
I'd first like to apologize for the quality of these photos. The iPhone camera just doesn't cut it inside casinos. Secondly, the weather in Vegas this weekend was miserable. We're talking an average 35 degrees with lots and lots of wind. We spent a combined total of maybe twenty minutes outside during the two day trip. Cab drivers and my warm leather jacket were definitely my best friends all weekend. Except for the mean one who wouldn't talk to me, he wasn't my best friend. Speaking of friends, Colton and I were in Vegas with one of our favorite couples (and good friends), Jen and Josh.

A few highlights from the trip included...

++ A delicious dinner consisting of Lobster, Mushroom, and Black Truffle Gnocchi at Fiamma.
++ Dancing the night away at Tabu.
++ Riding the New York New York Roller Coaster. I highly suggest riding it in the mid-afternoon when you're in serious need of a pick me up
++ A hilarious meal at Dick's Last Resort.
++ Winning $150 in Video Poker, Deuces Wild is where it's at!
++ Josh's extremely loud snoring. 


I hope you're all having a great day! 
P.S. I need a nap.

Did your neck and back hurt after that rollercoaster? I stayed at that hotel once and was so excited about the rollercoaster but it was painful. Hahah. Going to vegas with a big group is the best. Usually I would go in August when it was like 104 degrees. Glad you made some $$ though!

I have been to Dick's Last Resort at Myrtle Beach, SC. LOVE the place. Not so crazy about the food (not a big fish eater) but I love going. It's always so fun to read other people's hats. I would have loved to have worked here when I was a waitress. Being mean to the customers & saying what you really think to them-and have them think it's just part of the 'act' would be a dream come true!
