    My Trip Report

    Pre-Trip Report ...

    I'm finally ready! I can't believe I will be taking off tomorrow morning to Vegas! I have been waiting since Feb to go & its finally here - I am outtie! I am finally all packed. Just yesterday my boyfriends mom surprised me with a new Coach purse for the trip, so far things are looking good! I am trying to convince myself that I will be ok on the flight. I am fine with flying, ijust experience major nervousness while waiting to actually get on the plane. Basically its a combined feeling of being excited, scared, impatient & nervousness. All that combined can really turn my stomach. [​IMG] But either way - I am looking forward to getting the hardest part outta the way~ Please wish me luck

    We are staying @ NY NY , I mentioned before we are going with a bunch of friends. Age range from 21-28. I am really looking forward to this vacation. I don't plan on gambling too much. I am really looking forward to seeing our Park Avenue Deluxe room. I plan on sleeping in, lots of shopping, staying up and dancing till the weeeee hours of the morning, eating some good food, try to go downtown this time & basically just enjoying the city I love so much! I will be there from Friday - Monday, my co-worker is there already and said that CineVegas is on & cracking. She said there are a lot of celebrities everywhere. Lets see if I can run into any of them. COOL! [​IMG]

    I probably won't post after 10am (West coast) because I will be off of work by then, and its off to do all my last min things, head to a graduation & then watch the Laker's play & off too bed. I will be leaving for the airport first thing in the morning. Our plane leaves @ 9:30am & drops in Sin City @ 10:50am! By tomorrow I will be sipping on some yummy drinks.

    Many thanks to all of you helped get my trip started & planned! I will think of all of you guys while there & I can't wait to tell you guys all about it! Thanks, thanks, & more thanks for all those that helped with lots of the NY NY tips! [​IMG]

    Much love,
    Landa [​IMG]

    Edited to add: I probably won't post a trip report til late next week .. Can't wait to tell you guys all about it! Till then ......

    have fun, and be sure to ask for a really really high floor.. at lease +25 or higher to get away from the rumble of the rollercoaster.

    Have fun Landa! I'll toast your plane's arrival as I'm making my way over to the LV Hilton....

    Maybe we'll bump into each other while we're gazing at celebrities!

    I'm guessing that most of the celebs are at the Palms where Cinevegas is going on? Or are they everywhere? I recently read that the lounge at Ellis Island has been frequented by Drew Carey and Nicholas Cage, who apparently enjoy the locals karaoke there!

    Vegas, here we come!!!

    This is why I love reading Norm Clarke's column--he always says what clubs and restaurants celebs are spotted in--Bellagio restaurants and clubs come up frequently too, in addition to Palms, sometimes Hard Rock. The column is also where I read about Drew Carey doing karaoke at Ellis Island (he's also jammed with the band at Riviera I've heard) I rarely see celebs. I hate it when I get home and read in the gossip column that such & such was at the same casino the same time I was--I READ these gossip columns, I KNOW what these people look like--how come I never see 'em?? Oh well, another Vegas mystery..... :rolleyes:

    Landa,

    When you write your trip report, please describe your park avenue deluxe room and whether you think it was worth the price. The wife and I usually stay at the NY NY and have always had a standard or broadway deluxe room. I would be curious as if it is worth the upgrade cost. We are going to be in Vegas this weekend too (Sat – Tues) but are staying at the TI and Palms because my wife wants to try something different than the usual (NYNY). I’m envious of you because your staying in my favorite casino and your beating us out there by a day. Can’t wait. Enjoy.

    Thanks for all the well wishes guys! I managed to sneak out of a graduation dinner earlier this evening, and while doing last min things I figured that I would come on to see the boards one last time.

    Heathcat – I plan on shopping lots & spending time in the casino’s drinking up with my girls & my honey. If you see a bunch of loud girls giggling way too loud – That’s probably us!! HE HE

    rkintx - If I remember I will really try to capture our room with pic's & details. We are taking a digital camera but it always seems to fail on us when we need it most - so I brought some back up disposal’s for our trip.

    I am already feeling early jitters for the plane, my honey can tell its bothering me a lot, so he has been extra gentle with me these past couple of hours. AHH I hate nerves! It will all be over soon. Even with the Lakers on right now, my nerves are still getting to me [​IMG] . Lets hope it passes soon!

    Serious now – I am off the boards till I come back. If I post again it’s probably because I can’t sleep! OK serious now – I am logging off till I come back –

    Bye guys & good night! [​IMG]

    Vegas here I come .................

    Hi Everybody,

    I love how people get excited about Vegas on this board. My husband thinks I am crazy [​IMG] when I count down the days to Vegas (I am going from July 12th to the 15th). It is refreshing to see that there are adults that enjoy life like you all do.
