    My Trip Report

    Ok so hubby and I are heading out after work tomorrow on a 6:45 flight from PDX to LAS. Need some grown up downtime after getting the kids back to school and prepping for some upcoming work travel.

    Have a great deal on midsize SUV rental through Alamo ( fastest kiosk in Vegas rental center) reserved on Costco travel website for $73 for 4 days Friday night - Monday night.
    Have three nights comp at Delano after check in we plan to hit a late dinner at Lupo. It's about the only place open MB that we haven't eaten at.

    I'm not the best at keeping these trip reports going LIVE, I either think no one will be interested in what I'm doing or I enjoy myself too much to get online and update. But I will do my best and try to grow some food porn and some big wins in.
    Will hopefully remember to post from Portland airport tomorrow, at least a carpet shot.

    Had a nice glass of wine and bowl of soup at the airport. SW gate agent just announced that the flight is going out 50% full, yippee I also overheard there are no connecting bags so if we are all on board we can depart early! First BIG WIN!

    Here we go, the true test of great food, if it's great the second time you have it! At Della's Kitchen awaiting the arrival of my chicken and waffles!! We have the same awesome waiter we had in June, his name is Kawin. It's super busy I haven't been here on a weekend in a long time. [​IMG]

    I'm wearing the same shoes! (I mean the Nikes...although the sandals are pretty cool, too!)
    Have fun at Penn & Teller. I get a kick out of those guys. Maybe Teller will surprise the audience and say something!
