What a nice way to wake up this morning! I had been battling a disgusting round of food poisoning (never eating SUBWAY again), but this morning I could not feel crappy anymore. In my inbox was an e-mail from my best friend with the photos from her camera in Vegas!!!
It was so wonderful. I was reminded of all the nice weather, and the fun adventures we had.
We left for Vegas early in the morning from Edmonton, Alberta. We were at the airport for 4:30 *yuck* from there we landed in Phoenix for an hour and then on to Vegas. It was great from the beginning. Alberta has been really cold this winter (like always I guess) and we still had snow so both of us were happy to get out of our sweat pants and into something that showed a little more skin, and off we went.
We stayed at the Monte Carlo, which was nice, but we could have done without the screaming child in the room next to us!!
The first thing on the agenda was the outlet mall. Irene LOVES to shop!!! We got matching COACH bags… we call them our friendship purses.
After shopping Temika and Dan Sperry picked us up…. Can I just say they are the nicest, sweetest couple in Vegas! They took us to The Peppermill, which I could not believe the portion sizes! WOW! I love the interior as well, so cheezy “retro” Vegas… The food was good but I had an awful headache which made it hard to eat, must have been the early morning travel, mixed with excitement. They even drove the strip with us after dinner, back to the hotel. It was AMAZING at night, all the lights. I just loved it! And it was so nice and warm, it was great to feel the warm breeze from the open car windows (as the cabbie earlier refused to let me open his). The strip was so busy as we happened to be there over Spring Break.
We went to Club XS that night and Irene’s friend who lives in Vegas 1/2 the time met us there. It was packed, but luckily he was able to find us. The clubs are so neat, I love the ones with the outdoor sections, and pools. I think its so much nicer than the clubs we have here. It get’s too hot and stuffy.
The drinks in Vegas are STRONG…. That’s all I have to say about that….
