    My Trip Report

    The time has finally arrived for my belated birthday Vegas trip. I've honestly lost count but this will be somewhere around my 18th or 19th trip to Vegas. We try to get to Vegas at least 1-2 times a year, and my husband goes a few more times a year for work.

    He has actually been in Vegas since Monday staying at the MGM for the HD Expo conference. It wraps up Friday and I am flying in (First Class, Delta airlines) to meet him. We will be staying at the Cosmo for 3 nights.

    We switched over to the Cosmo a few years ago and besides when he is traveling for work, its the only place we really stay now. We've got 3 nights comped in a fountain view Terrace 1 bedroom (I was offered 4 but my schedule only allows me to be there for 3 nights sadly), some food and beverage credit as well as some freeplay. I know everyone isn't a fan of the 1 bedroom layout, but I do love that Japanese soaking tub, and since my hubby gets up earlier than me it is nice to be able to close off the bedroom so I can get my beauty sleep without him keeping me awake.

    This is going to be kind of a low key trip, no shows or major plans. Just lots of gambling, eating, and drinking. We may visit The Secret Garden since I have a Myvegas reward, but I won't be upset if we don't either.

    I'm mostly packed, I have the bankroll ready to go (envelope system works for us), now Friday just needs to hurry up and get here!

    I'm hoping I'll have lots of slotporn to share with everyone.

    It's midnight, and I am too excited to sleep! I'll be in Vegas in 21 hours!

    I visited my local casino today to jumpstart my gambling bug (Like it really is ever off lol) but did terribly. Lost $340 in about 40 minutes. Hopefully my luck is better in Vegas!

    It’s finally time! I spent the morning getting the house and Kids taken care of (4 kids going 3 different places for the weekend made it a bit hectic!)

    I’m riding the bellair airport shuttle bus from my local casino to SeaTac airport. I live near the casino and it’s so nice not having to deal with driving in traffic or deal with parking at the airport.

    I’m on my way!!

    Made it to the airport and breezed through security thanks to Sky Priority. Now I’m at my gate and board in 1 hour 20 min.

    My husband is already in Vegas and checked into our room at Cosmo. I’m kind of bummed the room we got is not a renovated 1 bedroom. We are in the Chelsea tower floor 33.

    I was looking forward to seeing the renovated rooms in person.

    I was going to get a pre flight drink but the only bar near my gate was packed. Guess I’ll have to wait for drink service on the flight.
