    My Trip Report

    PreTrip Report:
    I had the best time posting live for my first solo trip and plan to do a live TR for my dirty 30 in vegas!!

    The plans have changed many times but to save yall the annoying details here's the up-to-date info:
    I booked 2 hotel rooms at the Linq:
    Myself & B
    - B is one of my best childhood friends who has bailed on Vegas for 2 other times... one of which was my bachelorette
    A & M - A is my husband and M is his good friend

    Huge Condo behind MGM:
    Mom & Dad
    - gave them a really hard time months ago that everyone else in my family was coming except for them... except now both of my siblings have backed out on this trip (both had valid reasons, i guess) and my parents are still going because "Erica never asks for anything" :D
    But truthfully I love spending time with my parents who moved from TX (close to me) to IN about 8 years ago. I'll see them as much as I can!


    My plans:
    Saturday: Border Grill Brunch reservation (one of my favorites), Mystere with B at 7pm (never seen it before)
    Sunday: Jazz Brunch reservation with B, A & M
    Monday: Mat Franco with parents
    High Roller (bough enough of the day passes with drinking for everyone on travelzoo when they were about $13pp)
    Fremont (I love Fremont!!)
    MAG is always a must for me and it will probably be my birthday breakfast on Tuesday

    I'm up for any suggestions, tips, good karma, etc. Can't wait for it to be next Friday!

    I've never gone to vegas with so many people before! I actually typed out an email for my parents and B with the brunch reservations, show ticket times, etc today because they were asking for vegas plans. This is wayyy over planning compared to my normal trips.

    Oh side note, B is a Vegas Virgin! Everyone else A & I have been to Vegas with - M was Memorial Day 2016 and my parents were Valentines weekend 2015.

    Well in less than 24 hours, I'll be in my favorite city!! All my big events seem to happen in vegas... engagement, bachelorette, 30th and assorted random fun weekends :)

    I've checked A & I into Southwest (we have B5 and A55 positions) and am now finishing my pre-vegas prep by watching vegas movies! "Last Vegas" is currently my favorite because it shows so much vegas and the cast is great

    Pictures will start being posted tomorrow.
    Cheers! (to 30 years :D )

    A & I walked over to cvs. He wanted some healthy stuff and I ended up getting champs and cheetos for B and I

    [​IMG]

    Back in my room waiting for B and M to get here (they found each other at the airport because they landed at basically the same time)

    And if you were wondering, yes, my baileys was delicious and no, I haven't won any money. But still so much more Vegas to day!
