We survived Vegas

I'm back in WI.  Tan, tired, and broke.  Sounds like a good time to work on some free house projects, right?  I thought so.  That is what we'll be doing all weekend, and I will hopefully be catching up with my favorite blogs as well.  I took next to no photos on this trip, lame for a blogger, I know.  I did snap a couple shots of our 'GO' room at the Flamingo, it was pretty rad.
I loved the hot pink accents and that groovy white vinyl headboard!  The bathrooms have tv's in the mirror.  I watched Friends while I was getting ready one day - the one where Ross and Rachel get the hot nanny 'Molly' - in case you were wondering.....
Our room overlooked the Bellagio fountain show, so that was pretty awesome.  However, we were underwhelmed by the strip attractions, I can't say anything really stood out. We went to the VooDoo lounge on top of the Rio for the awesome views, unfortunately the vodka tonic I got tasted like the bartender made it with dishwater.  And it was $10.  Wah Wah. 
This is before I actually tried the drink. 
I think Shaun's was better than mine.  Or maybe he has lower standards.
At least we got to look at this for awhile.  The view, not the dudes on the stairs.  We did not get one photo of the two of us over the entire trip.  Bummer.  But we got some neat individual shots using the 'nighttime' shooting mode on the Rebel.  Without even trying, the lights created some awesome effects. 
Cool, huh?  I thought so.


  1. Welcome back to reality! That looks like you had some serious fun.

  2. WELCOME BACK! I was wondering where you were! Looks like you had a great time!

  3. TVs in the mirror?! My husband better not get on a blogroll kick and read that, he wants a tv in our bathroom SO BAD!

  4. Hahaha, "tired, tan and broke" - so true of a Vegas vacation, huh? That's exactly how we felt after our 3-day getaway there!

    Looks like you guys had tons of fun!

  5. Vegas is so much fun - the people watching alone is worth the trip! Glad you a good time :)

  6. That room looks awesome! And TVs in the mirror is very posh. Glad you guys had such a good time!!

  7. That's it. The next time we're going to Vegas, we're staying at the Flamingo! I loved their pool the last time I was at LV and now the room looks sooo cool.

    Love the 2nd to last pic!

  8. Yeah for Vegas! Love that room and it looks like you guys had a great time!

  9. TV in the mirror?? No. Way.

    Looks like you guys had a great trip! Fortunately there are no photos of my last escapade down there. Hehe.

  10. So awesome!! I wants to go! Thanks for sharing and happy monday ! xo

  11. Aww... You guys are adorable! I am glad to hear you had a pretty good time. I don't think vacations ever totally live up to the hype...

  12. Welcome back to reality! Vegas is fun for awhile, but it gets to be overwhelming when you think about how much money is thrown around there. I've been to the VooDoo Lounge as well, doesn't it make you feel like a rock star when you're up there?? I did, anyway. :) Sorry to hear about the over-priced, underwhelming drink!


Thanks so much for reading....your comments mean a lot to me!
