Hi Friends 🙂
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).
Our room was lovely and the room service on Thursday night was wonderful:
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.
