Happy Monday!! Today I am back with day two of my Vegas trip recap!! We were only in Vegas for two days so I guess this is technically also the last Vegas recap? LOL!! So let’s get to it!! It you missed part one (which included pics from the Maroon 5 concert!!!!) you can catch that here.
After our super long night out we didn’t get up until 10am Vegas time and promptly headed down to our hotel’s restaurant/bar for breakfast and bottomless mimosas!! Afterwards we headed out to see the sights!!
First of all can I just say how weird it is to see palm trees outside when it’s so cold outside?? The whole time we were in Vegas it was in the 30’s and 40’s!! BRRRR!! I guess I never thought about it being cold there??
The first thing we did was head to the Bellagio to go shopping!! On the way we stopped in an outdoor mall and I got these awesome Ray-Ban Wayfarers as my “Vegas Souvenir”! I have been needing a good pair of shades and these are perfect!!
After my purchase we headed into the Bellagio and did a little shopping! I have to admit right now that I have never been in such high end stores before!!! We went to Louis Vuitton, Yves St Laurent, and Chanel just to name a few!! While in Chanel Rebekah got herself a souvenir and I fell in love with this necklace…
…it goes perfectly with my Old Navy vest and Maurice’s top, right? HA! While super expensive and totally out of my price range, I did fall completely in love with it!!
After shopping we headed back out to the strip and caught the water show in front of the Bellagio on our way out! How cool is that?? I love that it plays different music and was different every time we saw it!
We walked all the way down to New York New York, stopping in lots of hotels on our way only to find that most of them had the exact same high end shops with the exact same stuff?? Weird!!
We cabbed it from New York New York to Caesar’s Palace and totally had a “Hangover” moment!! I can’t even tell you how bad I wanted to ask someone if the hotel was pager friendly!!! HAHAHA!!
After getting lost in Caesar’s and walking in a huge circle, we finally found our way out and headed to our next destination, Serendipity!!
You know we had to try the Frozen Hot Chocolate and we got lunch/dinner too!! Y’all. All I wanted was a chili dog and they brought me this massive thing!!! OMG!! Needless to say, I only ate the dog, no bun and no coleslaw. HA! I also got the Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate instead of the original and it was amazing!!!
It was dark by the time we finished our meal and so we headed to the High Roller next!! The High Roller is a 550-foot tall giant Ferris wheel!!
It currently holds the title for world’s tallest ferris wheel and never stops moving. It is moving when you jump on and still moving when you jump off. the cabins you ride in are totally enclosed and can fit up to 40 people. We were lucky in our timing and only rode with six other people! Go us!!
We walked some more after The High Roller, ran into DJ Khaled (first celeb sighting!!), and took a rode on a gondola at The Venetian!!
We then hiked down to the Wynn and walked through the lobby. The Wynn’s lobby was absolutely gorgeous!! Everything is made out of flowers and they still had some Christmas decorations up. I was in love and would definitely stay there next time I go to Vegas!!
We caught a cab from the Wynn back to the Bellagio because we had ticket to O!! O was the first Cirque show I have ever seen and I have to say the bar is officially set high!! This show was amazing and now I want to see more!!
After O we hiked it back to our hotel, packed our bags, and passed out! Rebekah and I got all of two hours of sleep before we had to head to the airport to catch our 5am flight back to Dallas. What is up with weird flight times to and from Vegas?? Ugh!!!
We made a few quick stops in Dallas before heading back to Arkansas…Trader Joes, Starbucks, and Mi Cocina!! I am also happy to report that I got a few new mugs to add to my collection…
Overall I had a BLAST in Vegas and I will definitely go again if given the opportunity! However, I will try to go back when it’s a little warmer outside! LOL!!
Have you ever been to Vegas??
What was your favorite thing to so/see??
