10 things I learned in Vegas Part II

Thursday, April 21

1. There are an exorbitant amount of naked bums in Vegas. Several that greeted us every morning as we came down in the elevator. And another very large one right outside our hotel. Lovely. Not that these pictures have anything to do with that.
2. The New York roller coaster was awesomeness. And so were our candid coaster pictures. To bad it also cost your dang arm to buy one.
3. The water show is at its absolute best when choreographed to Luck Be A Lady.
4. I want you to know that I looked like a freak while trying to make this picture -- Pressed up against our hotel window. Hyperventilating like I just ran a marathon. Glad the dang thing turned out. In a perfect overly cheesy kind of way.
5. And this is my special happy face after taking a delicious nap until 2pm and drinking my favorite chamomile tea while about to peruse a three-story H&M. 
Pretty sure that sentence just ruined the rest of my week.
6. These things were my favorite
7. I didn't learn this in Vegas. But husband is fine. And also a party animal
 8. Cheesy pretzles almost always taste better after 11:00. And turns out, they also make you grow a pair. To tell people off who are being nosy and rude and I'm pretty sure dishonest. You should know that this is a huge deal, as I've never really had any before. But then again ... what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. So maybe I left them there. Too bad.
9. Raspberry Gelato is best enjoyed while people watching and playing special people watching games.
10. This was most certainly the best trip ever. One that took my walking legs about two days to recover from. But one that was ridiculous in the best way possible.
I love you best friend. I've never had a better time with anyone.

Morgan said...

Amazing pictures! I'm one of those people that tries to take a picture of the TV screen with the ride pictures on it. Those things are always so expensive!

jacquelynnicole said...

so you've probably had eight katrillion (its a number) people tell you this eighty katrillion times, but man you guys are so cute together! So glad to hear your trip was a blast

Ana* said...

Miss Priss Morgan said...

Hooray for Las Vegas! I always take advantage of the fact that I live here and rarely get to see it through a visitor's eyes!

the Alton clan said...

Glad you enjoyed Vas Legas as I like to refer to it. The Belagio gardens and fountain show is my favorite Vegas freebie to enjoy too. I've lived 1 1/2 hrs. away my whole life, so Vegas is a frequented place for us...but I could also do w/out all the naked bums really :)

Alexandria said...

Gah I love everything about the Bellagio. From the water show to the food. Best place. Evah.

Sydney said...

Very cute!! I have little memories of Vegas but I haven't been since I was.. 12? Yes, it's been a few years! But lovely pictures! I have to say, Vegas is so much better at night though. I think the time zone is reversed there. You sleep during the day and come alive at night. Perhaps that's just me.

erica said...

cute! where'd ya get the red pants?

It's A Love Story said...

Im so glad your back!

Miss Jewells said...

Love these! I've been dying to go to Vegas...we've actually been tossing around the idea of trying to go later this year. This definitely made we want to go even more. Glad you two had a great time!

Lovely photos. The boy's been to Vegas a few hundred times (mostly for work) and I've still never been. I am motivated now to tack myself on to his next trip! Thanks for sharing. -Jenn

Oh gosh I loved this post. It left me with a smile on my face the whole time :) I love your little hair braids, and your layered lace top. Also, it is so cool to see how much fun you and your hubby have together all the time, even though you aren't newlyweds anymore. Inspiring, really.

Lastly, what lens did you use to take those first two shots?

Mr. Taylor and his Lady said...

I loved that you and your husband are so fashionably savy. I enjoy reading this blog every time I wake up in the morning; it starts my day off light and with a laugh.

Your trip looks so fun... and familiar lol my Hubby and I just went to Vegas for the weekend and stayed at the Bellagio. We went for the crepes and I want MORE!! He ran in the Baker to Vegas relay. Then of course we hit up both H&M's(the small one sucked!) and the Palm's resturaunt :) You wouldn't know there is a recession in Vegas cuz there were SO many people tossing out cash there lol
You're a talented girl and I love to check out your outfits :)

LOVE Vegas!! Your photos are awesome! We went two summers ago but didn't take many photos... just quick snap shots here and there... we are going back in October, so I can only hope to have photos as great as yours! Looks like you had a good time!

Melody's Voice said...

The trick is to take a picture of the picture of you on the roller-coaster. Just a trick I picked up growing up 5 minutes away from Magic Mountain and an hour from Disneyland.

ashlee bracken. said...

um, i live like an hour and a half from vegas, in st george.. and i dont think i've EVER had as much fun as you did. teach me your ways. maybe i've been to the vegas airport one too many times and it kind of ruins it for me. agreed though that their shopping is a death strike for me. sooooo much of it. its heaven.

Boston Sweetie said...

Girl- you and your hubs take such beautiful pictures. Glad you had an amazing time in Vegas!!

#6 is my favorite too! Luckily Dave Chihuly's a native of the Seattle area and I get spoiled with his masterpieces.

Cynthia said...

Such fun sweet photos!!!
I kind of want to go back to Vegas right now because of your posts. I've been before and I'm afraid to go back... seriously, Vegas sucks you in and spits you out! I might have to go for that H&M alone though.

holtkamp said...

glad you had such a great trip! love your pictures, especially your outfits in this post!

Your hubby looks great too. Do you help him with his outfits?

I am pretty sure you have raised the bar 50 feet higher for any man who wants to pursue me, since I have decided that I can't settle for less than a relationship like the one you have with your hubby. :)

Maybe you can find cheesy pretzels at home and then you'll feel like you did in Vegas?...

Cute photos! I was wondering what type of camera you were using? Me and my man are going traveling soon and I want to document our trip with some awesome photos but scared of taking a huge bulky thing with us. Is it worth it!?!! Oh the dilemmas :-)
