    Good Evening lovely people.
    We spent a very lazy day in the room. Finally pried myself out of bed in time to get ready and head down for my 3:30 mani/pedi.
    It was a pretty good experience. I was the only one in the nail area so that was cool. The nail tech was very sweet and we bonded pretty fast. There was some sort of weird tension with her and the front desk lady. I sensed it when she went to get a new bottle of polish and returned mumbling something about having to "wait for her highness". It was confirmed when I was checking out and the tech brought my info up to the front desk chick. The front desk chick all but ignored the tech and was very shut down until the tech left and then she sprang to life asking how everything was and joking around with me. It was very odd, but I guess every workplace has their differences between employees.
    Here are a couple of pics I snapped of the nail area while she was getting the polish.

    I got back up to the room and we decided to order up some PF Chang's for dinner. We had some super old gift cards that we found a couple months ago and hoped they were still active. Turns out the $50.00 one was, but the two 10.00 ones I got from a couple of the half marathons were dead. It was cool, it still paid for dinner using the special Fathers Day menu option.

    And the Wonton Soup got eaten too fast to take a picture. Everything was super yummy.

    Now we are hanging out until we join the other VMBers for the meet up at 10:30 tonight.

    Pics of shenanigans to follow!

    Can you find out what they are going to do on 4th of july and the times they will have security check if they are? 4th of July runs on a sunday this year. I want to make sure I am in cosmo before they start doing it on 4th of july if they are. It will be packed and busy. I am going to a slot pull at 6pm, have free play to use there, and dinner at 8. I would like to be in cosmo by 4ish, 5pm the latest.

    Just got back from the meet up at Encore.
    We walked over to Encore around 9:30 and it wasn't a bad walk, it was just HOT!! We got there about 15 minutes early so we hit the bathrooms and stood around outside the lounge for a bit until @spdandpwr showed up and introduced himself. A very dapper gentleman in a nice suit. I felt under dressed in my shorts and sleeveless shirt.
    Other people were introduced and I apologize for not recognizing usernames. I know that @MikeOPensacola @TiffyChick and @Johnnguyen2 were there.
    It was a pretty great time. We all just sort of stood around and talked for a couple of hours while sipping cocktails.
    I'm not one for peopling, but this was a nice time and I'm glad we went.
    Mike was nice enough to show us to a good place to catch a cab back to PH. After walking there and then standing for a couple hours, we were ready to just get home instead of walking and I stand behind that decision. :D
    Here are some pictures that I took on the walk over.

    I would call them and double check. If they are doing that, your dinner reservation (if at Cosmo) should get you in.

    Honestly I like that they limit crowds on weekends, it really helped it be less crazy when Mike and I were there. It was awesome.

    The meetup seems fun!! Looks like a great time! :)
     
    Quality time for me!
    Starting off 2022 on the right foot! Winning!

    Man, I could really get used to this whole sleeping in/laying around in bed all morning thing.
    I remembered to hydrate last night so I didn't feel like total ass this morning - there is a win right there.
    Hubs is off to get some supplies at Walgreens while I get ready to face the afternoon. We don't have any plans today other than to go exploring in the casino(s).
    Tomorrow is when things start to get moving for us. We just booked out tickets to Meow Wolf for tomorrow morning and depending on how we feel after that, we might hit up the Pinball Hall of Fame. That has been on our list to see for years and we never seem to make it, so I'm hoping it's in the cards. Followed by more gambling.
    Wednesday we hop the Deuce downtown for the night to meet up with @MikeOPensacola and anyone else that is in town that wants to meet up. I figure it's going to be very chill, just slotting around and having cocktails all evening.
    I know the Hubs is getting antsy about how much time I'm spending in the room, but this is much needed relaxation for me y'all. I'm really digging not having to do anything on a schedule for a couple of days.
    I'll post more (hopefully pictures of winnings) a bit later when we hit the slots, but for now enjoy this selfie Hubs took of us last night while we waited for a cab. Also, ignore that my eye makeup went rogue and created an unintentional upside down cat eye situation. :kill:
