Vegas Baby

After a quick 48 hour trip to Vegas, we're backkk.
We left at 8am Friday morning, it only took 4.5 hours to get there. This trip I wanted to knock out a few things I have always wanted to do in LV. We usually are in a group so this was nice just us two to hit some spots up solo. 

Up first, Peppermill. I have loved and followed Holly Madison (Hef's ex) for years, remember seeing this restaurant on her show and we finally got to check it out. 

We then hit the Miracle Mile shops since it was gloomy out. I also wanted to try a drink from Sugar Factory but $17 dollars later, I wasn't too impressed. 

After catching an hour nap, we headed to dinner at Rao's. Best service and a delicious Italian dinner. We stopped for a drink at Fizz which was a cool lounge.

Off to see Absinthe we went. Definitely a twisted, inappropriate show wrapped with amazing acrobat acts. Husband thought it was funny, I'm still confused how I felt.

Next door was Serendipity, so we had to stop in for some Frozen Hot Chocolate. Sadly I was not impressed. At least now I know..

Called it a night since hubs was doing Spartan Saturday morning...
I slept in until 9, showered and headed for Starbucks. I thankfully reserved a chair at the private pool at Golden Nugget, for $20, so worth it.
It was a beautiful day, had a great spot at the pool, and made a friend (her husband was at the run too) and we people watched and chatted all day. 

This was the view from our room, the pool was at the top right. 

We had dinner with the husband's Uncle at Hank's Steakhouse and called it a night so we could hit the road early. 

Awesome Shark Tank, with the water slide going thru the shark tank. Yes we went on it.

Until next time..

Not impressed with the frozen hot chocolate?! I've heard raving reviews...ugh. That's a little depressing. It looks yummy!

This looks like an awesome weekend! That slide is crazy!! I had the frozen hot chocolate at the Serendipity in NYC and I wasn't that impressed either! So disappointing!
