Vegas Part 3

We started Wednesday off with the breakfast buffet at MGM. The food was delish! There was breakfast food & salads, fried shrimp, etc. I had a breakfast flauta that was really good. Then there was dessert.
I mentioned that I had chips & dip for breakfast Monday. That was the beginning of weird breakfast. After eating my breakfast I had chocolate cheesecake that was really good, pistachio gelato - OMG sooooo good!! Then there was a very dry scone that I didn't eat. My 13 yr. old neighbor's scones are way better.

After breakfast we went to TV City. It's an area in MGM where they bring you to watch a show that is in production to see what you think about it. They told us that they screened Partners (my new fave show this season) so we were hoping for something great. Sadly, we didn't get it. We're not supposed to give any details so I'll just say that it was military & a little interesting but not enough to watch every week. After that we did the CSI Experience. There was a crime scene that you looked at & took notes & then went through all the steps like they do on CSI. It wasn't  exactly what I thought it was going to be but it was fun. We went to the Venetian & to the wax museum.
This pic of Allison cracks me up!
My boy Snoop!

After the wax museum it was time to shop! We went to the shops at the Palazzo. I've been saying for awhile that I was buying something good while we were in Vegas. Our anniversary & my birthday is in October & I've worked a ton of Overtime. The shopping in Vegas is second to none if you're interested in designer stores.  I don't generally shop at places like that but when in Vegas!!!

We got a little something at Michael Kors! It's a wristlet for your iPhone & there's room for credit cards. Perfect for when you don't feel like carrying a bag. It's purple & as salesman Drew told us, is made from a new material that is water resistant! We loved salesman Drew. He was the gay BFF I've always wanted!
A little Tory Burch! Part of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.  How could I not buy it?? I'm giving to charity!
While I tried on the fabulous Louboutins Dean & Joey sat at a bar & drank beer. I didn't buy them but I realllly wanted them. See those behind my head? $3800 & a chick who I would guess was in her 20's waltzed in picked them up, told the saleslady her size & bought them like it was nothing. WOW! While I was trying on shoes & Allison was trying to convince me to buy them, Dean & Joey were drinking a beer in the bar by the store. When we finished with the Louboutin's Dean showed us these things.
They had them in Margarita & Cosmo flavors. We chose Cosmo & they were sooooo good. It's an adult Popsicle! Allison & I are even on the SnoBar Facebook page because the marketing guy just happened to be in the bar & saw us buy it & he wanted to take our pic.

Another stop on our list was Holsteins for a Bam-Boozled shake. SOOOOOO GOOD!!! We  were all getting hungry by this point so we had some fries to go with our shakes.
They hit the spot!
My shake was the Drunken Monkey. It was Reese's, banana, Malt & Frangelico. It was really good.

Wednesday night was Tony-n-Tina's Wedding. Funniest show ever! It was a big Italian wedding with a pregnant bridesmaid, a drunk Priest, crazy parents, a skank ho step mom. SOOOO funny! It was just like being at a wedding & reception. There was food & cake & dancing. One of the groomsmen pulled me onto the dance floor & spun me all over the place & dipped me. OMG. The wedding singer got in Allison's face & she sang part of Sweet Caroline. 
Dean got a hard hat & put on the stage to help with the YMCA. It was hysterical! The food was good too. The only disappointment & I know everyone doesn't feel the same as me is that the wedding cake didn't have butter cream icing. It was that whipped crap. BLECH! There's no point eating cake if it doesn't have butter cream.

After the wedding we attempted to have drinks at Rhumbar but there was 1 bartender & a party of 30 so we moved on. We watched the Volcano at Mirage. It's always cool looking.
That day when we got back to our room at 6:00 to change for the wedding our room hadn't been cleaned. The cleaning ladies were still in the hall so we hung out in Allison & Joey's room while we waited. Well, the ladies disappeared & our room still wasn't cleaned. We got ready for the wedding & called housekeeping. They gave us a line about how they were still cleaning but they'd send someone up. When we got back everything was clean & we had turn down service with chocolate by the bed.
The slippers were a nice touch but I think they were a men's size 14 judging by how they swallowed my feet!
Only one more day!!!


  1. Oh how fun in Vegas! I often wondered who buys shoes at that price and if anybody ever. I guess some do, must be millionaires. I love Michael Kors purses and we can afford them cause they're not in the thousands, lol...Christine

  2. Sounds like you are having a blast on your trip. Happy birthday AND anniversary!

  3. Oh my! I wish I had been with you to shop!! :)

  4. I am realizing there is more to vegas than gambling. I hadn't thought of all of these other things to do! The Canadian has gone out several times - to gamble & to play hockey. One time I had to wire him money to get home. Seriously.
    So I always refuse vegas trips. May have to rethink....
    Love that Dean was in the show HA!!
