Happy Weekend

This weekend: Late post, but we just got back from a weekend trip to Vegas. I am literally writing this post while trying to unwind with a beer (Papago Orange Blossom - yumm!). Las Vegas is about 5 1/2 hours from our house, so it's really convenient for us to drive there on a Friday and back on a Sunday. I even won some money while I was there!

  • We stayed at the Park MGM (formerly Monte Carlo) during this trip. It has been completely remodeled and now that the renovations are complete, we really enjoy the property and all the convenient ammenities. Eataly, the new restaurant marketplace, was a favorite of ours and I had an amazing cocktail at NoMad Bar. Also, if you drive to Vegas, they have a convenient parking garage connected to the hotel.
  • The Park MGM offers free craps lessons every day at 11AM and we took advantage of it since we've never played before. I don't think it's my game, though. I'm more of a Roulette kind-of-girl.
  • We saw Zumanity @ New York-New York. I thought it was fun, but it was very risque so I would not recommend it if you are uncomfortable with nudity (we saw a couple people walk out as soon as they realized the performers were topless).
  • During this trip, we didn't walk around as much as we normally do (mainly because it was freezing). We're planning on going back in April with my sister and her husband, so the weather should be more cooperative.
  • And finally, I'm anxious to get back to our regular routine. The dogs and I had been really good about going for multiple long walks and getting our steps in before my trips, so we're all ready to get back to it (except Ranger because that guy is so lazy). This new Apple Watch strap should help get me motivated again.
Have a great weekend!
