    Ok let’s recap, Luck has still been horrendous, checking out of Mirage today and into Palazzo so hoping my luck will change.

    Saturday we went to Stratosphere to do the tier match I read about on VMB, unfortunately they stopped doing it at the end of September. The girl I was asking at the comp desk seemed really put out that I asked a question stopping her from chatting with her colleagues.

    We went to Aria as we both had Myvegas rewards for the Patisserie. We stopped playing the game a while ago but thought we might as well used our remaining gold coins, love it here, great iced coffee, crepes and pastries! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    On to Forum Shoppes, I haven’t been in this mall for years, as a shopaholic this mall is wonderful. We didn’t stay too long, the late nights and jet lag were catching up on us. I had been up at 3am to edit the Vlogs which takes 3-4 hours, so back to the Mirage and after some relaxing in the jacuzzi tub, I was asleep at 7:30 pm lol

    My only pic worthy slot hit

    Yesterday was a great day!
    Hubby decided to treat us to a cabana, I emailed my host Saturday night and he made sure I got one Sunday, I was lucky enough to get this comped in the summer and the boys love it. I find it so relaxing and it forces me to just chill out at the pool for a few hours. Sunday cost was $350 without food and beverage and without gratuity.
    A fun day at the pool and the hottest day so far! And cheaper than a few hours in the casino!

    The steak tacos from the pool cafe was a particular highlight for my son! [​IMG]
    We also had pepperoni pizza and Italian chopped salad from CPK,which was delicious!

    Last night we took a Lyft to Paris for circus 1903, a good show for kids, the best part was hubby and son were chosen to go on stage for a part in the show... so funny!!!
    I can’t see this show lasting much longer, the theatre was less than half full, and while it was a good evening with a child, I’m happy we got two free tickets (diamond tier match) I would not want to pay full price!

    After the show we met up with Trooper97 to pick up some Trooperware tees I ordered in the UK! We met him before a couple of years ago when he used to deal I the Linq. So exciting as we watched his Vlogs for years.

    Got a Lyft back to Mirage, tucked the boys in for the night and got my ass handed to me again in the casino
    Checking out this morning from the Mirage, so far just enjoying coffee and pastries in bed from Roasted bean while I catch up on YouTube/ VMB/ Instagram and get the next Vlog edited.

    Thank you for following along,this is probably a bit boring lol

    Loving your blog and the vids .... hope your luck improves majorly

    I feel comfortable at the Mirage but the casino (slots) are brutal to me too ... we’ve stayed there countless times and I’ve never had a single hand-pay there

    Looks like we’ll be going back there too as my “offers” from my “host” at Bellagio are appalling (Plat)

    Good luck to you, over the road ... as I’ve said before, watching your vlogs, we feel as if we’re with you

    Sam_margues - I have 3 tickets to the Rascal Flatts show at the Venetian for Wednesday, October 11 at 8:00. I can not use the tickets so if your family would like to go, I can email the tickets to you.. Private message me if you would like to have the tickets. I sent you a PM earlier.

    Always love to watch your videos!! You have a wonderful family. I really hope your luck changes in the casino. I swear that the casinos must be doing something to these slot machines, really tightening them up.:grrr: I avoid them pretty much.I try to stick to table games and sports betting. Good luck guys!!!

    Love the part of the video where you are driving down the Strip. Sometimes, when you are sitting inside a casino all day, you forget how beautiful the Strip really is. Walking and seeing all the hotels is so much fun. And it's a good exercise and keeps you from losing too much money at the slots!! Thanks again for the great vlogs!!:clap:
