I can't believe it. Leaving for Vegas tomorrow, and today, I wake up with a sore throat. I've been chasing my little one around with a Kleenex all week, so I guess it's no surprise. ****sigh**** Can't let it slow us down. Ugh. At least we're getting our hair done in Vegas tomorrow, maybe my hair will distract people from noticing my nose likely running? I can picture it already. Ugh. It all seems so very un-VegasChic-ish. Oh well, pretty sure I could crawl the strip with broken knee caps if I had to. Enough whining....and more meds........ Background- My sister and I live in different cities, so we have always made a point of getting together at least every quarter. Last November started our trips being in Vegas...hard to believe we are about to set out on trip #5. (Had been to Vegas a dozen times before the start of these regular trips). As much as we love our daily lives, for us Vegas is a little escape with a bit of glitzy fun on the side. Our Vegas priorities are gambling - with shopping, food, and one show thrown in every trip. We make it a point to try new things every time we go. Our loyalties belong to Cosmo & CET, but, we have Vegas ADD and always end up elsewhere as well. So much for our THEO. The Plan- I admit it now, my plan is a mess. I already said I have Vegas ADD, and I meant it. We were fortunate enough to make Gold at Cosmo and Diamond at CET, and we were just going to go and do nothing but gamble for three days. But, stuff keeps coming up. I haven't even bothered to make ANY dining reservations - normally I do. As busy as it is, I don't want it to be overly structured, and we're fine to take it as it comes. Highlights- - Meet my sis in Vancouver Airport, she's coming in from Winnipeg then we're direct to Vegas. - First night stay at Venetian - (first) - Slot tournament at Venetian (first) - Go to Wynn to get a haircut & style at the salon (first - going to start a tradition of doing high end salons each trip) - Go to SLS since it will be the shortest taxi fare as we're ever going to get from the strip (first) - Meet up with some other VMB'ers (first) - Staying at our Cosmo/PHO usual set up the other nights - Try and check out the Diamond lounges and some perks while there (first time) - Head to the Andrea Bocelli concert on Saturday night, playing at MGM (first) So looking forward to this trip, hope to get a lot of gambling in. Although this is trip #5, we have had only one single hand pay. Our average bet is $3.00 - $8.00 per spin, sometimes $10.00. Geez - starting to wonder if these penny slots aren't the worst bet in the house.....:evillaugh We will do our best to keep this live!
