    Smooth ride and I am now in my Parlor suite. It is a little odd that I am on, for me, a relatively low floor, but I like this room at the very end of the hallway facing the strip. I see rooftops more than I normally do though. Also, for the first time my flowers weren't here when I arrived. Not a big deal but ya'll know how much I LOVE Wynn so wanted to mention FWIW when she isn't absolutely perfect.

    You've seen the pics before but here are some in any event before I unpack and settle in.

    More to come but I failed again on the light packing front. I WAS MUCH more organized this time and brought less than I otherwise do. but still brought a lot though a whole other suitcase was needed to pack what I bought yesterday, including a telescope, wide lens for astrophotography and a bunch of other items, so my question from two nights ago as to whether I should take my binoculars because of weight kind of became moot. I had decided to pack them and realized on the flight that my lack of sleep caused me to slip as I think they are still in my apartment....

    Now that I have gotten some tiny so so (verses great karma) out of the way, let the trip get started with some champagne!

    I wish I was like you when I grow up but since I’m way older than you, I’ll live through your posts

    That room looks so familiar. I was just in one about 3 weeks ago. Not in the pics, but the mirrors on the ceiling are nice. Love em. Can't wait to get back.

    Entrance, powder room, bathroom and awesome walk in closest, which is one of the features I love about the Wynn Parlor Suite that the Encore Parlor Suite does not have.

    This morning at JFK. Terminal 4 was VERY busy. I hope to not be returning in 19 days with any ADDITIONAL luggage.

    Okay, I've got one hour and 7 minutes before the 2 pm Wynn Master Class on making the perfect cocktail. Going to unpack, shower and get rollin'!

    I love my mother so much and wanted to share in all of her elegance that she is also one of us.

    I called to tell her I had landed and was safely in my suite, etc. She knows I was up all night and that I have the cocktail master class coming up

    She said please be careful, 1000% of out love and then says "and I have to say selfishly you can't get sick because I am already packing for 'my' trip to Vegas (via me) and have already started working on my budget."

    I am still cracking up and my heart is full.

    As I've said before, @Flowers, you are so very blessed to have a Mom who loves Vegas at 88 and is planning ahead like her daughter. Funny about leaving the binoculars at home after all the indecision!:oops:
    Have a magnificent trip, be safe, Win-Win-Win, eat well and ENJOY!!!!

    Still sanitizing:) but almost finished. Will just freshen up and head over to the class and will then come back and get all dolled up before experiencing the new Black Card/Chairman's Lounge (currently at Tableau between 4 and 7 pm on Friday and Saturday nights) and dinner at Costa at 6:30. :love::love::love:

    Noticed that this seems new,; this tray to hold water, plastic cups and the ice bucket. Maybe this was here all along but I like this tray, enough to buy it if the price is reasonable and is available in the Wynn Home Store. Unlike the room service coffee cups, this would be uhmm, noticable if it went missing. :haha:

    Something I am genuinely curious about: You sanitize your room when you get there. Do you not trust housekeeping? I know you have mentioned appreciation for when housekeeping does touch all your stuff to organize your toiletries. I would be more concerned about the latter, especially since housekeeping is in and out of other people's rooms all day.

    OMG. Everything is right in the world.

    You may remember I talked about the awesome HK service bu Maria Gonzales. And well. I started getting annoyed as I really wanted those mini sandwiches as part of the amenity as the champagne is getting me.

    Well guess who knocks o n my door 5 minutes ago, which literally brought me to tears? Maria Gonzales. She is now with room service and she just delivered the most beautiful flowers.

    OMG. I have to fix my face Not kidding. My trip just got made. Wow.

    Okay. Later.
