Vegas Vacation!

Shane and I went to Vegas for this 4 day weekend...for a little honeymoon.
We had soo much fun and did a lot in a little time!
I will just share a few pics!
Us in front of the Vegas sign.
Once we got to Vegas we checked in and headed down to Margaritaville for a late dinner.
Dinner at Margaritaville!

The husband at dinner! :)

Instead of getting 2 seperate meals we got appetizers...we do this all the time so we can sit and snack on different things!
Shrimp, crab and mushroom dip, Ahi Tuna (my favorite!) and Lava Lava Shrimp.

After dinner we saw that we could make it to the last showing of the Sirens at TI of the night. It's a very cute show but very loud!
Then we just walked around a little bit more and checked things out! Because duh, we are in the city that never sleeps!

The HOT volcano at the Mirage.

The beautiful ceiling at the Venetian.

I love this place!! Its absolutely beautiful!

Day 2: We woke up pretty early to get ourselves some chairs next to the pool. Then had breakfast in the food court. Then hit up the wave pool and the lazy river! We expected a bigger lazy river but still fun!
Delicious Watermelon Mojito.

Cupcake shop inside of our hotel!! Of course we had to try the Red velvet cupcake and a Strawberry with Cream cheese icing.

Ready to hit the strip after catching some rays!
We went to Caesars Palace first to check out the Forum shops, which takes about 2-3 hours to see everything!

In front of the fountain.

 Inside the forum shops! Soo pretty inside!!
We had a delicious late lunch/ early dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and this is the absolutely best Mojito I have ever had! I love me some fruity drinks and this was great! Passion fruit Mojito!
 I had never eaten here, so I had to text my bud Valerie and see what she recommended and she def. did not disappoint! We usually love the same foods and YEP I def. loved the Santa Fe BBQ chicken salad!!

Enough for 2 people!!
Once we refueled for more walking I noticed a line of people standing outside of a store in the forum shops and ol Dick Butkus was signing autographs and having a meet and greet! Shane is a sports fanatic so of course we had to meet him!

Shane has always heard rumors about a guy from Bruce knowing Dick...and after he asked Shane where he was from, he knew exactly where Bruce, MS was!! It was crazy! And Awesome! Shane was grinning from ear to ear! I loved seeing him that excited!!

Then we got some Gelato which topped off our day at Caesar's Palace!!

Then we went back to New York New York Hotel and Casino to ride the coaster.
And of course I had to take a picture with a showgirl!

Pretty cool coaster that starts out inside then goes outside then goes back inside of the casino!

I'm sure we walked about 3-4 miles!
We went to Paris to see the inside of the casino and hotel and I fell in love with the bathrooms there!!
I could soo see this sink in our guest bathroom/ hall bathroom!
I just love it!!
We had to checkout the MGM.
They had some cute kitties!! lol.

We were soo tired from all of the walking in our flip flops!! Shane's poor feet were so messed up after walking so much!! So we went back to the room to get ready for another day of walking!
