    Last night was pretty low key. Hit the diamond lounge for a snack before gambling a bit. Wasn't feeling it again but at least this time I broke even.
    Grabbed some Chinese from the food court and went to bed.
    This morning we slept in before heading over to Harrah's Oyster Bar for our celebration dinner/lunch.
    Everything was amazing. I got the Lobster Bisque in a bread bowl and Rob got the seafood pan roast. We split both.

    We also got the seafood risotto and jambalaya to go for dinner tonight.
    Housekeeping was making up our room when we got back so we dropped the food and headed back downstairs.
    Hit the sports book to place a bet for my friend at work and then checked out the Habitat.

    Now we are back up to the room.
    I'm either getting sick or the dry air and smoke from the casinos are attacking my allergies so I feel like I am. I'm on the verge of losing my voice, and we are reaching the end of our gambling budget, so this might be a relax in the room kinda night. We shall see how it goes.

    Finally got a second to set up my tablet with the keyboard so I can use the actual website to comment on your comments.
    Thanks everyone for the positive feedback.
    Awww, you are very welcome. This makes me feel better about posting so many pictures. :)

    Thanks! The calzone was pretty amazing. Even the leftovers that were cold the next morning were yummy.


    Thanks, I work for a holistic Doctor that has a protocol for a gallbladder cleanse but my husband is deep in denial. I will see about feeding him more Apple juice now tho. Good to know. And GWAR was for sure a must do concert once in your life.

    Oh that's funny!! Never in my life did I think to myself that I would attend one of their shows but I'm glad I did.

    We were SHOCKED when we saw what we got for such a cheap price. The week before thanksgiving is definitely the time to get the bargains.

    Gawd I hope not.

    I couldn't stop walking around saying: "Babe, this is bigger than our house!!!!!"

    Oh for sure, I was turned on the second I saw it. :headbang:

    Rob is currently taking a nap and I'm getting ready to call my mom and wish her a Happy Thanksgiving.
    Speaking of that, HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :woohoo::woohoo:

    Last night we played a small amount of gamble but didn't win anything.
    This morning we woke around noon and by we I mean me.
    Got up and headed out to Madame Tussaud's wax museum. It was the one thing on our list we didn't do.
    I had a Myvegas coupon for a free visit and the hubby had to buy his own.
    It was cute and killed some time

    We are home. It took us almost ten hours to get home, it normally takes us eight. Part of it was leaving later than normal due to meeting friends for breakfast. The rest I blame on the fact that people got wise last year that if you leave on Sunday after a four day weekend the traffic is horrendous and therefore they stole our idea of leaving on Saturday.
    At any rate, we are home. The dogs are back in our loving arms and SOOOOOOO happy. As am I to see them. I will do a proper trip wrap up tomorrow but I am so tired right now that I just want to crawl in bed with my furry children and sleep for a week.

    Enjoyed your TR @cvkelz - looked like a great time to be in Vegas, and snagging a suite was icing on the cake. We really like that suite at Mirage too!
    Hope it was just an allergy thing - stay well and thanks for taking us along.
