Las Vegas: The Fun

I want to document a few more details of our Vegas trip before I forget! You can see Part 1: The Strip here.

We got to Vegas on a Friday night and checked into our room at Harrah's. Doug's dad's friend is somewhat of a high-roller there and was sweet enough to get us a free room! This is the view from our window-



We ate dinner at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill. It was delicious and made me feel like I was back in the south! It had been waaaay too long since I'd had fried okra.


We also enjoyed the 32oz margaritas in mason jars :)


(Sidenote: I always try to do the "skinny-arm-girl" pose but I'm pretty sure I look ridiculous doing it. What am I doing wrong!?)


One of my favorite parts of the trip was the buffet. Ohmyword, it was gooooood. I eat like a man, as you can see. I'm definitely a meat and potatoes kinda girl.


And I can throw back some dessert with the best of them! I believe you have to get your money's worth in a buffet :)


We walked the strip and gambled for all of Saturday afternoon, then got dolled up for a big night out! Doug and I aren't so much into nightlife, but we made an exception for Vegas :)


I wore this adorable dress that I've had and loved for years, but I only brought one pair of shoes to wear with it. These.


I lasted about 30 minutes in them, before I had to go back and change! haha I'm a wimp when it comes to heels, and these were way higher than any I've worn!

We headed over to the Rio for dinner and drinks, and that's where I ran into Jake Pavelka


And this was probably the highlight of our trip- the dad that I nanny for is a poker player, and he has a good friend that works at the Palms. He asked me if we'd like to be on the VIP list at Ghostbar, the nightclub/bar there....to which I said of course! It was such a cool experience, probably the first and last time I'll ever be on a VIP list! :) 

When we got there, we walked past the long line of people waiting to get in and told the bouncer our names. He put us in a separate line, where we didn't have to pay, and we went right up, to the 55th floor!  See that white overhang right above where it says PALMS on the side? That's the club! 


It has an amazing outdoor area that overlooks the strip.



And these are the suites that Hugh Hefner owns. You may remember these pools from a Girls Next Door episode!


I think that's all of the details I can remember! Lots of good food, poker, and sights made it the perfect getaway weekend! We are already planning our next trip to Vegas :)

Sounds like you guys had some pretty helpful connections!

You had all the right connections!!! I think I would have been to shy or stunned to actually talk to Jake, and that's if I even recognized him! (I'm soo bad with faces!)

You highrollers, you! So glad you had a great time. I think your skinny girl arm looks good! Also, I think it's time I start making margaritas in giant mason jars. YUM!

It looks like y'all had a blast. Toby has one of the bars in Tunica and now I want to get someone to go with me.
