    My Trip Report

    Soon after my last solo trip to Vegas in May, I convinced 4 (all too willing) friends to go on a girls trip with me to see Britney before her residency ended.

    I've known these women (girls) since elementary school (except for one but she's a high school friend). Most of us have gone from elementary to high school together. One is a Vegas virgin and the other three have been at least once.
    It's going to be an amazing fun trip but I probably won't gamble as much as normal.

    Follow along for lots of drinking, eating and Vegas pics!

    Went to happy hour before the airport for some good texmex

    And then got a wine in the airport

    Ready to get to the city I love!

    So funny, had to text a friend of mine who is coincidently going same weekend as me (and apparently you and your friends) to see if this was her "crew". She is meeting three other longtime friends (two of whom are in medicine) for an all girls trip "to see Brittany" as well!

    Apparently, the answer is no...

    have fun, see you out there!

    Made it to Vegas!

    Two flamingo go rooms and my friend checked in and sweet talked one of the rooms to be a fountain view while getting both rooms across the hall from each other.

    Highlights from the night when the majority of us got in around 9pm were:

    O'Sheas to teach the ladies the fun of video poker. Not much progress in gambling because one of them thought she lost her phone. She swore it was at the bar. Turns out we found it on the bed, in the hotel room.

    Went to Cosmo and ordered 4 flower drinks and a glass of wine. B and I can't remember why we thought this was a good idea.

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    Everyone was tired after we left Cosmo. I ended the night thinking I was go downstairs after everyone was up to their room and gamble! That was not happening.

    All 5 of us went up the wrong elevator and got lost going to our rooms. our combination of very smart women couldn't figure out room directions when we're super tired.

    Ended up being hungry (and super thirsty for water) and my roomie was too. Time to check out Eatwell.

    Really good sandwiches, red velvet cookie was so big and the pizza was okay. When I'd go back it will be for the sandwiches.

    Here's the menu they offer at the bar, in room at Cromwell dining and 24/7 at the counter

    Damn. That menu makes me salivate, as well as the pics. Definitely checking out Cromwell next month. Haven't been since it was Barbary Coast/Bills. How did you like it?

    I like Cromwell a lot. Eatwell is a much needed 24/7 option for them and it was tasty!

    Admitted defeat for gambling right now and talking a walk on the strip. Also I've already hit 10,000 steps for the day after (all the walking we did last night)

    So I've had terrible cell service at flamingo. Sorry I haven't updated since lunch yesterday

    After that we did a visit to the pool (it was freezing in the shade) and the. Went downtown, had happy hour at Oscars and then to my request of the ponies. Turns out the girls didn't like sigma derby at the D because it was so smokey, we didn't get drinks offered to us and there was no logic and skill behind the winners. (That's gambling) after that we tried to go to le thai but it was crowded so we went to pizza rock.

    Woke up at 6am and my phone was dead. Sadly I can't share my photos of me WINNING with the rules of parlay. My phone was dead in the room. Parlayed up to 50cent video poker and hit 4 deuces at Cromwell!!
    Up a bit, that includes the money paid out for food and tips!
