Hey hey! So I am back! What a whirlwind the past couple of weeks have been. The reception went off without a hitch and was just so, so much fun. I promise I’ll post pics as soon as I get them, can’t wait to share all the wedding magic with you guys! In the meantime here’s pics from our recent Vegas girls trip..so fun 🙂
I headed to Vegas after visiting Derek in San Diego and met up with my bestie, Sonalee and her cousins and friends there. Girls trips are always so much fun! This trip was a little different as we’re all more grown up now so the things we enjoy doing are a little different from our past Vegas trips.
Like fine dining was huge for us this time. Absolutely LOVED all of the restaurants at the Encore/Wynn hotels. Had these gluten free Lobster eggs benedict, just as delicious as it looks. Already told Derek that we have to try and recreate it. Then we came up with the idea of doing a whole lobster filled weekend. Gotta love a theme haha.
Honestly I’ve been to Vegas like 15 times now and I never get sick of it. People always ask me why, and it’s the hotels really. Everything is just so grand and gorgeous and the decor is always changing. How can you not fall in love with this giant vase of flowers?! Stunning.
So if you know me, you know that every day at 2pm I’m watching General Hospital on ABC. Been watching since the summer I turned 17 and will probably never stop. What you might not know is that I’ll watch a little bit of The Chew before hand if I have time. So when we were walking through The Venetian and randomly stumbled upon chef Mario Batali’s restaurant, Otto, you know I convinced the girls we had to come back for dinner. Here’s the charcuterie board we had. Delicious.
So Sonalee wasn’t here for my bachelorette party (she lives in Australia) and she wanted to make up for it. I was a little hesitant cause I’m not into the typical stripper/Thunder from down under thing, it’s just never been my thing, but she knows me well enough and guess what her and our friend Bijal surprised me with? Tics to the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show!! The best surprise ever 🙂 In all my trips to Vegas I’ve never been to a Cirque show and let me tell you guys, you have to go. It was incredible! And the music, he really was a legend.
Another thing I had never done before was ziplining. Bijal found out that they do zip lining in Old Vegas so we bought tics and headed over there. The area of Fremont Street is not really my scene, but zip lining was crazy fun!! Not gonna lie, I was freaking out a little cause you’re so high up, but I tried to act cool cause the other girls seemed totally unphased while we were waiting.
At the end of the ride, the cable jerked to stop us which I had no idea it was gonna do and we were dangling above the ground for what seemed like 5 minutes until it slowly brought us into the offloading area. That scared the you know what out of me. They need to warn you about these things!! Regardless it was so fun and I’ve already told Derek we need to go back 😉
So even though our trip was a little more mature, we still partied 4 out of 5 nights, lol. Hey I guess that’s what happens when your friends are all moms and want to maximize their time away from their kids! Not complaining, it was so much fun. On our last day we decided to take it easy though and had dinner at Katsuya which was in our hotel. We stayed at the W which was inside the SLS hotel. Really pretty. Had gold leaf caviar sushi, so fancy and so good. If you guys have the chance to go to Katsuya (they have several locations around the world) definitely go.
So ya our plan of taking it easy was demolished as soon as the girls heard that Snoop Dogg was performing at Drai’s. Long story short we had an amazing time and I mean how can you not when you’re watching Snoop perform and the Bellagio is the backdrop?? LOVE Vegas.
I’ll have our Vegas Vlog up for you guys soon! How many times have you guys gone? What’s your favourite thing about Vegas?
