Viva Las Vegas!

Steve & I had an amazing vaca in Vegas last week. We stayed at the Trump and thought it was fabulous. It helped that Steve told the attendant checking us in that it was our 2nd honeymoon and she upgraded us to a room with a view of the Strip and higher up in the tower. Steve probably didn't like me parading around the room in my Trump robe pointing and shouting "You're FIRED!" all the time, but I just couldn't help myself!

We ate some fantastic food including: Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet at the Bellagio, (compliments of cousin Maria's stellar contacts); Indian cuisine at the Indian Oven (thank you to Jessica for that recommendation); Italian food at Venetian; traditional St Patty's day fare at Brett & Maria's home.

We balanced all this eating with lots of sight seeing and even spent time at the Trump fitness center, working those extra calories off in a posh environment.

We went to the Blue Man Show, which we highly recommend - very entertaining! We also rode two rides at the top of the Stratosphere... fun, but not scary enough. The Strip was gorgeous and entertaining at night... Pirate show at Treasure Island; Volcano eruption at Mirage; Water fountain show at Bellagio; Freaky people to watch... it is a people watchers paradise! Oh, the comedian we were so excited to see... "Andrew Dice Clay" ended up being a real disappointment, but live and learn, right?

Since we are hardy folks from the Midwest, we spent 2 hours each afternoon at the Trump pool sunny ourselves and getting our vitamin D replenished, even though the locals thought 77 degrees was freezing. Those silly natives! We got some nice color tho', so ha!

Simply having time to be with my hubby... priceless!
