The Last Day.......

Thursday was our last day in Vegas. What a bummer. I wasn't ready to get back to the real world! Allison & Joey went on a tour of Hoover Dam. We did that last time so we skipped it.

I love Caesars!!
We had lunch!

I enjoyed having wine with lunch.

They brought a variety of bread. It was really good!
I love a wedge salad! I've been craving one since we got home & I had 2 while we were there.

I had the Greek pizza. DELISH. The Tzatziki sauce was AMAZEBALLS!!! It hurt my heart that I was so full I couldn't finish & I had to leave a couple of pieces so I didn't have to carry it around Vegas.

Dean took my picture after my little shopping trip at Michael's. Believe me, I was MUCH happier than I look in this picture.
I got some sunnies!
The Uptown Astor Shoulder Bag. I own him! Yes, I said him. This bag is much too fabulous to be just an it.
With the shoulder strap. It looks like a different bag! The shoulder strap can be removed too. The light is funky in this pic but the studs & chain strap are this gorgeous chocolaty rose gold metal.
The only gambling we did was Dean placed a bet on the LSU game.
He won!
Dean & I walked over to Margaritaville for a drink. I had a rum runner.
Andrea & Andrew made it! Remember when I said Allison was the funniest person I know besides her little sister? Meet Andrea, Allison's little sister! Her & hubs Andrew live in L.A. now. California not Louisiana. They drove over to meet us. We met at Margaritaville while we waited for Allison & Joey to get back.
Our next stop was The Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan.
At the Cosmopolitan you have to drink a Cosmo!!
Yes, I had on pants. I don't know why this picture came out like this.
Back in the room for a quick "Midnight Flight to Malibu" & to change before our last show. We had to change quickly because we needed to get back to Michael's before he closed.
I'd seen these earlier & decided I needed them & so did the girls. We each got a pair. The flip flop part is gold.
The last show! Once we were seated, the Usher came back & told us "we're not full tonight if you'd like to move closer". I was all over that because we were on the very top row. They weren't bad seats but of course we'd move closer if we could.
He switched out our tickets.

That's the stage & the "Million Dollar Piano". I was about to have a heart attack when I saw where the new seats were.
This was the end of the show. I LOVED THE PINK SO MUCH!! When he came out at the beginning he had on a gold jacket like this one but it didn't photograph well at all. That was the only disappointment. I ALWAYS bring a camera to concerts but I thought for sure there would be no picture taking because a lot of the other shows we've gone to have been that way. Not Elton! You could take all the pics you wanted but no videos. I was so mad that I didn't have my good camera.
After the show which was FABULOUS (I highly recommend going to see him if you have the opportunity), we met up with the rest of the group & went to Numb for a daiquiri. I got the Naked Colada. It was so good. The cups are these cool hologram type things.
We watched the fountains at the Bellagio one last time. I love those things. We made a quick stop at the hotel so I could change out of my dress & heels.
I needed to change because we were making the trek down to so we could go to Minus 5 in Monte Carlo. Have y'all heard of it? We saw it on the travel channel. EVERYTHING is made of ice. The benches, the tables, the glasses you drink out of, EVERYTHING. They provide the coats, gloves & boots (for a charge, it is Vegas after all). We went in & had a drink. It was fun. So different than anything we've ever seen. Next time we said we're going to splurge & get the fur coats!

Friday morning it was time to go home.
I was excited when I found out the limo was picking us up to bring us back to the airport. We had such an awesome trip! There's so much to do in Vegas that this trip was entirely different from our first trip & there are still things we didn't have time to do!



  1. Love your new sunnies and purse!!! :) Glad you had a great vacation!

  2. I'm so glad you had such a fab time, Traci! You certainly needed a break. Can't tell in the pic, but is your new lovely bag Pewter or Bronze (one pic looks one way & the other another). Either would be fantastic. Our "Chefy" son worked at Caesar's Palace early on in his career. He was in the restaurant that caters to all the super-high rollers (those who didn't blink at dropping a million dollars at one of the private gaming tables -- WHAT?), but I can't remember the name of that restaurant.

    Anyway, it's Saturday, & I hope you aren't having to work!


  3. Oh LORD that wedge and greek pizza look YUMMY!!
    I love your glasses and bags! I eyed a new pair of sunglasses at CVS today, but though $10 was too much - true story!! :) My boys break things.
    I am surprised EJ allowed cameras, as I have heard he is temperamental. I bet his show was FAB.
