    My Trip Report

    It's finally time for another Vegas trip!!! Less than 24 hours until takeoff, and we are checked in! This will be trip #13, I think. I kind of lost track of my earlier ones! All of my other TRs have been solo. This one will be with my daughter, I'll call her S, so this trip will be a bit different. Still lots and lots and lots of gambling, drinking, food. But also some shows and other activities to help fill the time between gambling. We will be there for 7 nights, my longest trip yet! And I need to find something to do to help keep the gambling budget inline! Hopefully winning, so I don't have to worry about the budget!

    We fly out Tuesday 11ish AM. S happened to stumble into a great deal a few months backed and booked the flights. So we're flying Frontier (meh) but we got the round trip at $140 each, and that included a checked bag each, so can't complain about the price! Should be landing before 1 Vegas time! Hopefully there will be no delays, as I want to make the group meet at 5!

    Our first two nights are comped at Cosmo!! My first time staying there, yeah! I have a Terrace Studio comped, and will pay $30 to upgrade to Fountain View, plus resort fees. Hoping to be able to get some of that taken off at the backend.

    The other 5 nights are comped at Paris with a Burgundy room, Eifel view. Diamond, so no fees! Still deciding whether we want to take the view or opt for the quiet side. We'll see.

    Things on our to-do list as of now:

    -Lots of VP, some slots, VP, Mississippi Stud, VP
    -We have tickets to 3 shows, Love, KA, and Zumanity all free thanks for MyVegas
    -Diamond show tickets, not sure what yet
    -The High Roller - bar car of course. Have not done this yet!
    -Lots of drinking
    -Food will depend on what we feel like. I have $100 diamond dinner to spend, probably a steak house,
    need to get to In N out this trip. Maybe Peppermill?
    -An evening crawling down Fremont
    -Hopefully some spa time (I say this every time and never make it)
    -Pool time? Eh, we'll see
    -VMB Meet up on Tuesday!
    -Saturday I have a group pull with Brian Christopher

    A dealt Royal on triple play or five play VP would be most appreciated! Have never had a dealt royal so that's a big goal!

    And this may be too much to ask, but it would be awesome to get a nice big win early in the trip so I can play on house money the rest of the week!

    I will try to keep this live, but since I won't be solo we will see where it goes! In any case, I'm hoping to post lots of pics of huge wins!

    See ya in Vegas!!

    My eldest daughter is 4 she’s already said she can’t wait till she’s old enough to go to Vegas!
    A mother daughter trip would be so much fun.
    Good luck will keep everything crossed for that big win for you :)

    Well, by "group" it's just the two of us. And I'm pretty sure you can tell we are together. We've been told we look like "sisters", mostly by drunk men, and dealers hoping for a good tip! :woot: LOL and I'll take that!

    Here's a pic from last year's Tunica / Nashville Girls' week!

    It is so much fun once they become adults AND still want to hang out with Mom! But enjoy her now, because the time will fly!

    The best is a mother / daughters trip. I have four daughters and the youngest turned 21 in 1984. So we hit Vegas Oct.13 of that year the birthday of one daughter turning 26 Oh what a great time we all had. Stayed at Flamingo pool side. Enjoy every minute I sure did. Still look at pics and laugh at all the shenanigans that when on. That's when Harrah's had the Karaoke bar out front....we are not singers.

    Thank you for all the good wishes everyone! I love, love, love that my kids actually want to spend time with me as adults. My daughter and I do a yearly gambling trip! Even my son still enjoys spending time with his mom. We need to do another trip the three of us, but he just had a baby (the one in my pic) so it's a little harder for him to get away. But of course, now I have a huge reason to go visit him more often!

    For those of you in town this week, I know there's a few! I will make sure to wear my VMB wristband, so if you see me, say hi!!

    @Richard Alpert, will you make it to the VMB meet Tuesday?

    You two do look alike. You already win the clone award.

    Looking forward to that royal pic! Sorry I’ll miss you this time. Maybe in the future.

    Thanks! Nobody can say she is not my daughter. Lol

    I am soooo excited to stay at Cosmo for my first time. I hope I can sleep tonight.

    @Ezzy711 I hope out trips match up again soon!

    Work is done, client is happy, packing done. I have a glass of wine and ready to relax. Up at 6 to get ready!

    Good luck Astribling - very cool you can do this with your daughter ! I totally agree with your comment how lucky you are that she wants to hang out with Mum !

    My son and I have a trip planned for his 21st in 16 months time (kind of weird he has been able to drink legally here for nearly 2 years already - but I guess he will be seasoned by the time we get to Vegas :)

    You will have a great time! It's kind of funny, when I go with my daughter it's obvious we are related. But I've been to tunica with my son, and sometimes get fun t looks. Like what is that cougar doing with that young man. Lol
