Saturday Morning Scene Vegas Style!

Greetings from Vegas!
I'm sitting along a NY city street scene enjoying my Starbucks.
Life is grand!

Our first full day here was wondeful.  We walked along the strip, checked out some of the other hotels, they're all amazing!  The Cosmopolitan so far ranks our favorite, by far the most swanky, the entire place was literally dripping with crystals.  Gorgeous!  We ate.  We drank.  I bought an adorable hat and some great new aviator sunnies.  Just call me Ms. Fashionable!  We checked out Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay and The Lion's Den at MGM Grand.  I won six bucks on the penny slots!  We saw Cirque de Soleil Zumanity which was uh-mazing!  My husband said any show where there's that many topless women is a-ok in his book. And I've already learned a thing or 2 about Sin City:

You can never be wearing enough glitter.....same goes for cologne
Your top can never be cut too low, your skirt never too high.....no matter the age or size
Paying 16.50 for 2 beers is good deal because later you will pay almost $40 for 2 of those frozen drinks
The casino's really ARE like mazes meant to keep you in!
Vegas by day vs Vegas at night......two totally different places

This morning we're going to the pool and then it's off to Paris and The Venetian for a little taste of Italy!
Happy Saturday Friends!!

My husband was in Vegas this weekend. He flew in for his best friends wedding and unfortunately he was only able to go for a day and half. He stayed at Caesar's Palace and said it was really nice. Vegas is one of our stops this month on our cross country tour and we're staying at the Stratosphere. I'm looking at shows to book now and I'll have to check out the one you mentioned.

So exciting and I'm glad you're living it up! I could not agree more with everything you said about Vegas. We loved Zumanity too, especially those chicks that get in the wine glass fish bowl thingy.

I've never been to the Cosmopolitan, but the hubs and I checked out the Mandalay Bay shark reef thing when we were on our honeymoon there. :)

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Oh, and by the way - my dress was not maternity - it's from J. Crew, so you should pick one up too! The color is called "Jade," which is why I had to have it. :)

Hope your 30th was fantastic! I'm finally catching up on my blog reading (that's what days off are for, right?). Vegas is definitely an interesting place.. my favorite are all the people handing out the "call girl" cards on the street.. only in Vegas!
