    Thank you! I know it will be amazing, and I'm hoping for lots of luck!! It was hard not to show my excitement at work today (secret fun, ya know) and it will be even harder tomorrow, ugh!

    Can't wait to follow your adventure @Texas Steph ! And you did SO well adding a night at Cosmo, one night is a PITA, and at $140? That's $70 a night, a total steal!

    On the work tangent, I avoid sharing Vegas with coworkers like the plague so if it's wrong, I'm right there with you on keeping playtime on the downlow!

    Have a Raspberry lemon drop for me too, and have an AMAZING time!

    PS maybe the hubs might venture into the barbershop speakeasy bar IF he likes any old-world vibe. Men can get a taste for being spoiled too, it's just finding what speaks to them, and this place will appeal to MANY guys that love old school "guy" luxury. (Think well-loved leather couches, cigars and neat single malts.) Heck, I am a woman, don't even like bars, and I want to hang out here! Good fellas, Don Draper, eat your heart out!

    Thanks so much!! I'm glad to know that others "get" my sly, stealthy, "not-having-any-fun-or- anything-sir", liar liar pants on fire secrecy!

    We haven't checked out the barbershop itself, but on our last trip we did get into the "secret" speakeasy inside for Karaoke with a live band. It was insane and so much fun!!!

    Thank you!
    Alas, I won't get fresh flowers delivered to my Wynn room (a little jelly!) but just being able to stay there, gratis, is great in itself!!

    I didn't know that place was real, just a song.
    Good luck!

    Woke up a few hrs ago to check in to our SW flight (got "A" group, whew!) and went back to bed.
    About to get ready for this loooong day on the job, ugh... and then early to bed. Gotta be up before the butt-crack of dawn to head to the airport! It's cool though, a few early morning cocktails should help me sleep on the plane, heh heh.

    Ugh, I know! But, better a short trip than NO trip... I'm gonna try to cram in as much fun as I can, so I probably won't be getting much sleep!

    I grew up in Beaumont, used to go to Delta Downs for horse racing just across the state line. I wonder if that is still around? Unfortunately, Lake Charles didn't have casino's back in the day.
