Vegas Recap

Okay- you've been asking, so I'll share some details of my trip {yes I was going to anyway, ha!}. 

Vegas = 29th Birthday Amazingness

For real, this short 3 night getaway was mind blowingly fabulous.  Josh and I went with my Dad, his girlfriend, my older brother, and sis-n-law.  {note to any of my younger readers: if it hasn't happened yet, yes there will come a time when vacations with your family (and even to Vegas) will be the ones you cherish the most.}  My Dad treated, and he really knows how to indulge and show everyone a good time.

On our way to Vegas on Friday we stopped over in KY and had lunch with my Dad and younger half brother.  He's ten and for obvious reasons wasn't joining us on the trip. {Yep, pulled him out of school for a bit.  But I don't see him that often}.  Sadly I don't have any pictures of this...

But I do have some to share while we were in Vegas.  As you might assume, I spent a lot of time shopping, gambling, eating, drinking fantastic concoctions, and hitting up the spa.  We also went to The Beatles Love Show by Cirque.  Fantastic.  Here's a hodgepodge of some of the shots I got.

{That would be my handsome father and me.}

We all stayed at the Wynn Hotel in Salon Suites.  And in case you're wondering, they're amazing.  1800 square feet and absolutely beautiful.  Large living area, beautiful bedroom and bath, an extra bath, a massage room...   Our room was up at the top of the hotel and had an amazing view that I never really managed to get good pictures of.  But here's the living area of our room.


I won't bore you with more pictures of the space, but it was gorgeous.  And on to some other details...  Here's a shot of some of the things I brought along.


There was a lot of eating...

{Dad's girlfriend Lisa, Josh, Me, Sis-n-law Kim, Brother BJoe, and Dad}

{Sorry for blurry photo, only shot of Josh and me! Look, my sequin skirt made the trip.}
{So did my sequin dress, sadly I have no photos from that night!}

I squeezed in a quick bite with fellow blogger Amanda from Recycled Consign & Design.  That girl is absolutely gorgeous, sweet, and so much fun.  Love her.  {Can you believe we forgot to take a pic?? !}

Like every good girl, I dragged my butt out of bed for shopping... but so worth it.  Thank you coffee.


Some other fun photos from the weekend taken with my Instagram App for Iphone.  You want this app!

{Street shot, some of my jewelry, Josh snoozing, and a shot of my Jimmy Choo Lavish birthday shoes (Thanks Dad!).}

{With my sis-n-law.  Isn't she cute??! She and I were bf's in middle school, that's how she met my brother. 

Oh, and I had a fashion emergency b/c the dress I planned to wear for my birthday night wasn't a zip up (ie pull over the head variety), and my hair was already done.... I threw the above ensemble together though and I think it was pretty cute (thank goodness I did get up and go shopping, ha.}

My Dad and Lisa surprised me with a birthday cake.  They're clearly aware of my fondness for Louis Vuitton...

{We didn't even eat it b/c it was so pretty. It flew home with me. Gimme Some Sugar Bakery created it.}

If you've made it this far, I thank you.  I try not to babble about myself too often, but I couldn't resist sharing a little of the Vegas magic with you. It was an amazing birthday weekend.

xoxo,

That looks like so much fun! I can't believe I lived just a few hours away from Vegas for 4 years and NEVER WENT! I'll have to make a trip there sometime. I love your flats in the first pic--so cute!

Stephanie said...

i personally love hearing you babble about yourself. =)

what a fun trip. those jimmy choos, i die. and just to let you in on what i've got in store for me, my almost 3 year old was sitting on my lap looking at your pictures with me and she says "momma, look at the SHOES. so cute!" me- "which ones?" "THOSE momma!" guess which pair she was pointing at?!

Deanna Pai said...

That sounds FANTASTIC! Your outfits are so gorgeous, and those shoes! Le sigh. The birthday cake is incredible, too! I'd really might as well fill this comment box with lots and lots of exclamation points.

P.S. I completely understand about going away with family. I'm going to Puerto Rico with my friends on Friday, but my entire family will be in California and I'd do anything to change my plans and join them.

Calder Clark Designs said...

Ok I hate you. And yet, I adore you. Loved staying at the Wynn, but my suite didn't come with Jimmy Coos? Harrumph. ;) Happy birthday, girl! Let's go out to dinner and you can wear your Chooooos and a besequined number and I'll sport some Tuggs (Target's version of Uggs) and HOTT maternity jeans.

Melissa said...

Guuuurrrlll, you are one slick 'n sexy highroller ;)
This looks like such a wonderful time and you look uber-duber glam in every shot (way to take Vegas by the cojones, chica)
So happy, happy birthday to you -- lurv the b-day Jimmies, btw.
We hit up Vegas last year with our 4 year-old.
We don't drink or gamble but we had an amazing, unforgettable, totally glam time even with a kiddo in tow, if you can believe it.
So, so glad you had this wonderful escapade.
Cheers, Alcira
