    Hey yall, nice to meet you.

    I've been on and off lurking on these forums for around a year. I live in Houston, I'm a chick, and I'm in my late 20s. I've been to Vegas probably 5-6 times. I'm definitely a low roller.

    My family has been meeting up in Vegas over Christmas for the last few years. We started meeting there after a rough year where we lost my brother. It actually works out amazingly because we're all adults, so we can spend time together and then split up to escape. It also works because my parents are divorced, but they will both meet us in Vegas so we get to see mom and dad. This year we're skipping the new(ish) tradition, so I'm going for Thanksgiving instead with my bff.

    I love all the trip reports and advice. Thanks for making the internets a happier place!

    Welcome Kaylynn. There's nothing like this board...plenty of advice that makes you feel like a veteran when you're in Vegas.
    Have fun during Thanksgiving, never been that week of the year!

    Haha it's best friend forever. She's my homie. I really like walking around vegas and people watching. Like, I walk A LOT in Vegas. I drink copiously, so I don't always walk in straight lines. I love blackjack (but still use my handy dandy card to tell me what to do). I like video poker. I haven't played slots much.

    Hanging with family is cool as long as they're not interfering with my drinking

    I already wrote a TR recording my last 4 days travelling, but it's not in english. And it will take me a long time to translate it.

    Kaylynn welcome to the land of Vegas when you can't be in Vegas! I envy you being there at Christmas time, I've always wanted to be in the casino when they were playing Frank and Dino Christmas tunes and all of the other great Christmas songs. Enjoy your time at Thanksgiving, I'm sure all the Christmas decorations will be out in full force.:beer:

    As a side note...my condolences to you regarding your brothers passing. That's a part of life I've learned to really dislike. At age 61 I've lost both parents recently and numerous friends. Not much you can say other than it sucks:thumbsdown:

    Thanks. Sorry to hear about your loss as well.

    Xmas in Vegas is fun, but kind of weird. There seems to be a high concentration of foreigners. Very few kids (which is good). Weekend after is usually hopping!

    Welcome, Kaylynn!

    It's great to have another Texan join our board . We have many Texans here on VMB, including several of us from the Houston area.
