I thought about writing one long Vegas recap, but I decided to break it down a bit.
Let’s start with Thursday. Jason and I both worked until noon that day – then met up to get haircuts. I decided to get a few inches chopped off and I also got some bangs. I have no idea why I wanted to do that. I haven’t had bangs since 6th grade! It is so nice to be back to shorter hair though…
My dad drove us to the airport where we learned that there were seats available in First Class – for $200 we upgraded and didn’t have to pay for our 2 checked bags (which would have cost us $50) so we decided it was a good deal and was worth it (and it was!)
It was so nice to have 3 hours to eat, drink and talk! I’m planning on making some blog changes in the next few weeks and it was nice to have the time to really talk about it all. After 3 hours we were in Vegas!!!
We ended up renting a limo to get to our hotel – I forgot to snap a picture, maybe it was the excitement from getting there, or the drinks from the plane…
The Trump Hotel was fabulous – just a block off the Strip and across the street from the Wynn and Encore. Every day I reminded myself to take a pic of the outside of the Trump hotel – and I kept putting it off and then I never took one! Here’s a pic from their website:
But seriously, the service at Trump was great and we would definitely stay there again. I only wish they had a shuttle that would drop you off at the other end of the Strip (Mandalay Bay). I didn’t like paying for taxis all the time and walking around sure got tiring (more on that tomorrow).
I had a big Cobb salad with romaine, hard boiled eggs, bacon, bleu cheese, grape tomatoes, turkey breast, avocado:
Jason had the hot pepper sandwich with waffle fries:
And we shared the chips/salsa/ (and unpictured) guac:
And the guac was so good 🙂
We actually went to bed around 10pm on Thursday night – too tired to get out and do anything. I kept asking Jason if we are super boring for staying in that night – and he kept saying no, so please tell me he was right 🙂
Tomorrow I will write about our day on Friday – I am still getting into “back to normal” mode. You know the routine: laundry non stop for days, going back to work, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining!
What do you like do after getting home from a trip? I like to get a load of laundry started, take a shower and then take a nap.
love your new bangs and haircut, holly! super cute!
glad you did the upgrade on the seats – what a way to add fun to your vacation!
totally understand about being backlogged when you come home – i like to get everything tidied up, cleaned up etc asap!
looking forward to the next recap!
drinks from the plane??? just kidding. please tell me you went to mickey d’s at 3am!
gad wu had a koooooooooo time. i can’t wait until we can afford to go again. we were hoping to go next year sometime. maybe it can be for all bro’s? since da keem will be of age 🙂
Getting home from a trip…UNPACK! Do laundry, sort the mail, go groc shopping, and my HSP self is usually in a bit of a tizzy…trust me. THAT is more overwhelming to me than being in other loud situations.
So glad you guys had a blast and loved Trump.
Renting a limo..NICE!
And upgrading to first class basically only costing you $100 bc of the baggage situation..smart thinking.
He was right! Boyfriend and I were so worn out from traveling, we took it easy the first night. We kept commenting how crazy it was, being in Vegas and not running amok. There was plenty of time for that later!
no… you’re totally not boring! Jason and I usually gamble A LOT and stay up SUPER late in Vegas… last month, I did not place one chip on one table or roll one dice in craps… I was confused and thought, oh, this is it. I’m old. Jason just said we went on that trip for different things – restaurants, spa and shopping. 🙂
We were so sick during our trip to Las Vegas so we ended up taking huge afternoon naps and calling it a night pretty early each day. But I usually went to bed early and he stayed up with his dad to do more gambling.
