I confess that I originally wasn't going to go at all. MJ's friends were going for a Birthday. We've been traveling a lot and I just didn't want to pay for another trip. It gets expensive and I needed a break so I told him I'd sit this one out but then changed my mind. I always have a really fun time hanging out with this couple and I couldn't bear to have MJ go to Vegas with out me!! I didn't want to miss out.
I confess that I chipped the nail polish on my big toe pretty badly a few days before the trip and refused to get my pedicure re done. I'd just gotten one not too long ago and rather then spend precious time getting another pedicure since every other nail was still good I went to Target and found a bottle of nail polish in as close to the color as I could find so I could just touch it up. It was $3.99 vs time I didn't have and $20.00 bucks so I took the easy route.
I confess that this trip was the first time I've ever ever had to pay to check my baggage and we had to share one suitcase because Spirit charges to carry on and check luggage. They also charge for drinks and snacks. You can't even get a tiny watered down soda and a mini bag of pretzels for free on that joint. They don't even offer any actual food options unless you count cup o noodles. Yes, cup o noodles!!! They claim that their awesome bare bones policy is to reduce prices for their valued customers allowing us to only pay for what we want but in reality it's just their way of showing up with the cheapest fare in search engines and duping you into thinking you are getting a bargain. Hello!! I'm traveling. I NEED luggage and you want me to pay just to carry on a bag with me? Also, their seats don't recline so they can pack more people in and get more money. They do have some rows with additional leg room but of course you pay for that. You also pay if you want to choose your seat in advance (we didn't). What's next? Charging to use the restroom? I wouldn't put it past them because not everyone needs to go to the bathroom on every flight right? Might as well just pay for what you need.
I confess that we ate at McDonald's twice!! It was right next to our hotel. Sometimes you just need a quick bite to eat to tide you over and you need it to be cheap! I got a grilled chicken breast salad after we checked in and then a Egg White delight the next morning for breakfast. Both healthy aside from the major sodium explosion but that is going to happen regardless of where we eat.
I confess that on Saturday I put on my bikini then ended up taking a nap instead (yes, still wearing my bikini and cover up). What had happened was that MJ woke up earlier then anyone should ever wake up in Vegas. He left to go sky diving with the birthday boy at 7:30am!! When he got back he was obviously beat and I was just getting up and moving around. I went and got us McD's then checked out the pool but when I came back and saw him all cozy in the bed it seemed like a better idea to join him.
I confess that we did not bust out the DSLR. Not once. We brought it and I even charged the battery but it sat in the room all weekend. I just wasn't feeling it. We've been to Vegas several times and I know we'll be going back so I just stuck to the cell and my little point and shoot. We really didn't take that many pictures period. Eh. Whatever.
|Not a bad touch up job on the pedicure. Right?|
I also confess that these are my wedding sandals from 2010!! Still going strong
I confess that Vegas brings out my inner 21 year old hoochie mama that wants to dress like one, booze it up and dance all night. I did not wear the black mini and crop top I bought but I will be saving it for next time. The first night we hung out in the quad area until about midnight. It's this new really cool area that has a new giant London eye like Ferris wheel. The birthday boy isn't really a "club" guy nor was he dressed appropriately to get into one but when we go to Vegas we like to get in a night of dancing. It's literally, the only time I feel the desire or the energy to do it so I like to take advantage of it. I love dancing. In San Diego the music usually sucks for 50% of the night but in Vegas the music is great all night long. We got to The Bank at Bellagio around 10:30pm and didn't leave until 2am. Most of that time was spent on the dance floor. There was no stage so MJ got to dance with me the whole night. It was so much fun, minus the drunk guy that kept spilling his drink on us. MJ literally removed the drink from his hand, put it on the table, and I don't even think he noticed.
Another fun Vegas trip on the books!!! I can't wait to go back.
