    I need so much water and nonalcoholic drinks right now. Bought a water and a Coke Zero.

    Also bought a sprinkles cupcake for DH.

    Played for about 5seconds and lost the money

    Loved following along. Are you flying Southwest? I’m also flying SAT to LAS in 3 weeks via SWA. Though I’ve already had a 4 hour change due to a cancelled flight, I’m concerned of another last minute change, due to all the Boeing issues. If you flew SWA both ways, did you have any issues?

    I was lucky. I had no issues with either flight

    Great trip report! Great fun! Sorry it wasn't a winner, at least financially.

    You didn't win gambling wise but you had IMO a seriously winning trip because you had a blast! Next time you'll do both! Thanks for taking us along a super fun ride.

    Final wrap up:

    There is no doubt I had a winning trip.
    The amount of time I got to spend with my sister (I only see usually two times a year) and my childhood friend was priceless.

    Brunch at border grill was the best meal! We went from ordering food to drinking mimosas and talking and repeated that a few times. Made for a fantastic, leisurely brunch.
    Favorite items were shrimp and grits, steak and eggs, potatoes and lobster corn pancake things. But everything was good, no disappointments.

    Because of the amazing Border Grill brunch, we skipped Herringbone the next day to eat a normal brunch... Bouchon! Again, another great brunch. So many good places to eat in Vegas.

    Daybed was worth it, just to see how excited my sister was when I told her. It was nice to have somewhere dedicated for us and also get some yummy food and drinks.

    The new lobby bar at Ballys made great drinks and had good wine choices! They also have nice stemwear, if that matters to you.

    Cosmo room was soooo worth it. I combined their "ditch everyday" promo, used my free sterling night on the expensive Saturday and thanks to Marriott status I got an upgrade.
    We ended up watching so many balcony shows from the terrace.

    I haven't seen much about Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars so...
    It was a fun thing to do for a drink but I probably won't go again (unless LV is making an appearance).
    We waited in a line for about 30 minutes at 530pm. There were definitely open tables and we noticed not many people stayed longer than a drink and snack.
    Being a fan of her shows, I was also disappointed to find out that most of the flowers there are fake.

    My husband may have some Vegas envy hearing about the recap so there might be another trip in my near future. We will see!!

    It depends on the day. I've been seeing some people get really great rates midweek.
    Mine actually went up after I booked it, glad I locked in at the lower rate!

    For what it's worth, I wouldnt go with an upper daybed, I was considering at the lower cost but it would have been a lot going up and down stairs.
