    Good morning world! It's 9:00a and I am refreshed and ready for the day!

    But first more on last night at the Cos:
    First I spent some time with Britney Spears and doubled my money. I racked up a bunch of points and still have Freeplay left!

    Then I wanted to try the new Alfred Hitchcock machine. As I was walking over, I noticed someone filming on the opposite one. It was one of my favorite slot YouTubers...Diana! :)


    I was too nervous to say hi, and I didn't want to be rude and interrupt her filming, so I told my boyfriend I was just stoked to see her. He's like, "Where is she? Let's go say hi!" So after a bit, we went over and waved. She stopped filming to talk to us and is super sweet and very nice. :) We're both Californians so we talked about our cities for a little, and she gave us wrist bands! Lucky wristbands ;) SO COOL!

    Then we walked back to the Flamingo and I was beat from all the walking. Couple of shows on Food Network (yessss), then we fell asleep. :)

    Now it's a new day of fun and success! And I have the concert at....4:00p! Woo!

    Britney is one of the few machines that has given me frequent bonuses. And I haven't touched her in over two years. Lol

    Jackson looked so sad to see you go, @luck.ofthe.draw. Better buy him a toy while you're in Vegas. :p
    Always love your reports.

    I will buy him a toy and a new bow tie! He's so cute. :D I have Monday off so we get to hang out!

    Ha! I love that game! The bonuses and random things are fun, and the fact that if you don't line up a bonus, it can be triggered again .... Plus her music is so catchy! :D

    I'm glad you stopped to say hello to Diana; she is such a nice lady.

    No meet photos?

    I got the strawberry waffle and holy hell it is AMAZING (no syrup needed)! Malty and sweet with a hint of Vanilla, just like my grandma Omi used to make when I was growing up. :) Love when food takes you back.

    M got the eggs Benedict and it was delicious too! His potatoes were seasoned well and so tasty, and the Hollandaise sauce was pretty fabulous as well!

    Same here! I'm glad we tried it, it's a really good value for the price, but nothing tasted like a cheap diner either.

    We even got our last drinks to go!

    M ordered Tiramisu and I was too full to eat it. Lol

    Waiting for some openers I don't care about, then Good Charlotte! Thanks to VIP tix I scored a barricade spot - it was almost full!

    The Pearl theater is gorgeous!

    The Meet N Greet was fun, but I didn't ask any questions. Sound check was rad too! :) Group photo was awesome too! So exciting.

    Dudes you guys! M got a Royal Flush at the Flamingo and won $2k!

    Good Charlotte show was phenomenal! I was front row and danced my butt off!

    Also had an asshole cab driver who kicked me out of the car.

    Pics to follow! Phone is almost dead.
