Vegas Part 2 + $25 Visa Card Giveaway!!

 Happy Giveaway Monday ladies!  We checked out of our hotel last night at 10:00 and got to the airport by 11:00pm.  Our flight left at 1:30 this morning, and we got in at 6:30.  I ended up getting home at 8:00 this morning and went straight to bed since the Dramamine was still in full effect.  It was a nice, smooth flight and I actually slept a couple hours.  They had a few extra seats, so they let me move to an emply row with three seats and I sprawled out, and it was the best flight I’ve had in a while.  No motion sickness either!  I just woke up, so I apologize for this late post, but it’s still morning to me.  = )  We had a great time, and I’ll post more pictures on Wednesday.  For now, I want to share our photos from the first two days of our trip and announce a new giveaway.  I’ll break this post into 4 different ones so you can see everything we did on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  You can see my pictures from the first day hereKeep reading to see how to enter the giveaway today for a $25 Visa Card!!  And don’t forget to enter the giveaway for the Modcloth Pearl Stud Earrings here that ends today and the Oia Jules bracelet here that ends tomorrow!

The first afternoon we arrived in Vegas, we checked into our hotel, Flamingo.  We lost our money gambled just a little bit and then got ready to go see “O” Cirque du Soleil at Bellagio.  My dad had already bought tickets for us to do a few things, and this was one of them.  We bought seats for the second row, and they were pricey at $150 per ticket, but if you can go, I highly, highly recommend it.  It made all the difference in the world.  We were in the dead center of the theater and we could see everyone’s costumes, their facial expressions, everything.  I had never seen a Cirque du Soleil show before, so I was really excited.  It was amazing.  We ended up seeing another one a couple nights later, but this one was by far the best.  If you get the chance, definitely see this one and be sure to get good seats.  The only bad thing about this show is that every other show we went to during the week was just inferior.  Nothing even came close to comparing with this one.  No cameras are allowed in any of the theaters so I couldn’t get pictures, but you can read more about the show here.  It involved water, ropes, trapezes, and so much more!


On Friday we shopped at the Premium Outlet Mall for a little bit, and then had to stop by the famous Vegas sign on the way back for a quick picture.  It ended up being in the 50’s, rainy and really, really windy the first 3 days.
New York New York Casino.  See that awesome roller coaster?  My sister and I rode it last night.  It was awesome!
One of the shops in our hotel.  We just had to snap a quick picture.  Hey, everyone else was doing it!

  1. Following you on GFC and BlogLovin and I'm so excited you were in Vegas! Its my favorite place to vacation since my fiance loves to play poker and I love to make spa appts and drink $2 margaritas! I was proposed to last year under that very sign! <3
    Anywway, I'd spend my $25 on one of those necklaces right up there! $8.95 can't go wrong. Then I'd spend the remainder on the tweed skirt I had to give up at Target last weekend. Endless possibilities yet not in the budget!

  2. You look like you had such a fun time. I haven't been to Vegas in about nine years and am hoping to go back soon…and see a Cirque du Soleil show (I saw my first last month in Seattle).

    Oh yea the contest. I do already follow you on GFC and BlogLovin (Ms Morgans Reality Check) and hmm… $25 might just have to go towards a new outfit now that Spring is here!

    Make sure to come by and checkout the post I just did about a Pin Up Class I attended and the corresponding giveaway: Bombshell Basics dvd, hair embellishment, Honeymoon Red nailpolish and Rock a Fella lipstick.

  3. Looks like you had an amazing times! Great pics 🙂 I would spend the $25 on…either a pedicure or a new pair of capris that acutally fit haha! Or a mustache scarf…oh the possibilities are endless!

  4. So jealous you're in Vegas! I've never been! Definitely the perfect place to do a girl's trip.

    Well, since you're offering… I'm loving the polka dot Gap skimmers! Want to help me out?

    Glad you had a great trip!


  5. Following you on both and I would spend it at Ulta. I'm dying to hit that store up! I love Vegas. It looks like you had a great time. The Hubs didn't go on the trip with you or just no pics of him?

  6. I am so jealous of your trip! I have been wanting to go to Vegas forever! Lucky! I will get there soon I hope. I follow you via GFC and Bloglovin'. I would spend the 25 for a dress I found online!

  7. I would probably spend the $25 on Very Jane's website. Those cute Apple of My Eye necklaces are great.

    Love the pics from Vegas! Glad yall had fun and so glad you are back in town!! 🙂

  8. I follow you on everything and you know this! I'd spend that $25 at Target, I'm sure! 🙂 maybe a new running skirt of the half, I need one.

    PS when is your sister going to start a blog??

  9. Glad you're having a great time in Vegas! I just went in November and I really regret not seeing a Cirque show 🙁 If you get a chance, ride the Big Shot on top of the Stratosphere… such an exhilarating experience!!!!

    I would spend the gift card on a nice dinner of Mexican and margaritas!

  10. I'm following you on both! Let's see….how would I spend the money/card? Jamie (the cute curly-headed one in the pic with me) has a birthday at the end of the month so I'm sure I could amp up her gift a notch. OR I'm sure there's something we need at the house. OR gas, who doesn't need gas? Just a couple of ideas.

  11. All right, I did it, I joined bloglovin, now I am going to have to figure out how to use the app. =)

    There are so many things I want to spend $25, I don't think I can narrow it down yet. Ha.

  12. I follow you on GFC & Bloglovin' (mrsmommyb). I'd spend the $25 on stuff for our new house. We just put in all our applications – so we're just one step away from new construction! Can't wait!

  13. Glad you had fun in Vegas! I can't wait to go back!

    I would buy myself a graduation present since I will be done with esthetics school on the 28th! I might go get a facial since I've been giving them to people the last 6 months. 😉
