Viva Las Vegas 2015 | Girls Trip!

3 days, 3 nights, 7 girls, countless cocktails and 1 city simply known as

Vegas

 

 

Girls trip to Vegas… can you imagine?   Well, we did, we made it happen and now I am going to cram three days worth of photos into one post.

Friday, January 16th.

It was a bright and early start to the day for Kristen, Jess, Tina and I so of course Bloody Mary’s were of utmost importance.  Apparently all Kristen had to do was bat her eyelashes a bit to our fight attendant and the next thing I know we all had double Mary’s.   To say I was feeling mighty fine by the time we landed is an understatement.   And no, those weren’t all mine.

I don’t think.

  Cheers!

First stop:  Planet Hollywood to check-in, kiss Britney, unpack and get lunch while we waited for Cyndi’s flight to get in!

image

Britney’s show was on hiatus while we were out there.  That makes TWICE I have been in Vegas and haven’t seen her.   This is a real life tragedy for this guilty Britney lover.

Moving on… elevator mirror selfies for the WIN!

Cyndi’s arrival meant it was finally time for Vodka SLUSHIES!

image

Complete with red tongues!

We spent the afternoon walking and checking out the sights.  In Vegas, there is never a dull moment.

This mirror selfie is clearly well AFTER the vodka slushies.

A day of walking and cocktail sipping left us wiped by early evening.  Pathetic, huh? I blame the 9am bloody mary’s, the four shots of vodka in my slushy, the beers and whatever else went down the hatch.   Whew!   Carrie’s flight got in after 9pm so Cyndi and I rallied to walk around and have another cocktail with her.   Bonus: vodka induced shopping for the WIN.  I mean, check out this killer midnight purchase!  🙂

Want to know something super crappy about our first day in Vegas?  Tyree was also to fly in by Friday night, but her flight was CANCELLED without notification.   She was at the airport ready to rock n roll before she even found out.  No email, no phone call and no indication that it was going to be cancelled since she had checked in 24 hours prior.   Ridiculous don’t ya say?  Do NOT use Cheapoair.com.   They will screw you right on over.   Thankfully Southwest Airlines was able to book her a Saturday morning flight.

Saturday, January 17th.

The morning started with an early workout and then we took off walking while we waited for Tyree’s flight to make it in.  First stop, Bellagio.

Then on to Caesar’s Forum Shops where Jessica and I ordered the BEST Bloody Mary’s we have ever had.   $20 for this baby, but it was 100% worth it.     Highly recommend. 🙂

We watched the creepiest statue show I have ever seen before making the hike back to the hotel to meet up Tyree!

image

Jess, me and Tina!

The gang finally together!

.

Saturday was hands down one of our best days there.

I don’t think we laughed as much that weekend as we did that day.

.

We hung out at our hotel bar to watch the end of the Iowa game.

image

.

Gambled and drank.

image

Walked to numerous hotels.

image

 

Made Cyndi into a MapQuest pin.

image

 

These four insane girls rode the Roller Coaster at New York, New York.

image

.

I mean, LOOK at that beast.   Hell no.

image

 

Carrie and her thought process coming alive.   I had too much alcohol in mine.

image

 

MGM Grand allowed us some couch sitting while the cocktails continued to flow.   It’s vacation.  Don’t judge.   Ok, well… some of us drank far more than others.

Tina played it cool <— smart cookie.   Some of the rest of us… ahem….. 😉 ❤

image

After the MGM we made our way BACK to New York, New York for some Coyote Ugly action!

image

We were the first in line to get in!  Causing trouble everywhere we went…

image

Coyote Ugly was straight up awesome.  Shots, dancing, singing, game playing, photo taking craziness all around.  It was fantastic.

Soon we found ourselves making the long walk back to the hotel to call it a night.   I don’t have picture proof, but, trust me when I say, if you go to Vegas with Kristen and you find yourself needing some food, stat, she will just help herself to any passerby’s food.   Straight up hysterical.

Sunday, January 18th.

Breakfast and coffee (bloody mary’s for a few.,. names witheld for judgement… hahaha) followed by the long walk to the Venetian.   Worth the walk to see the Gondolas in the middle of the hotel.

image

Carlo’s Bakery even has their own shop there.   We didn’t care to stand in the 25 minute wait of a line, but I am sure it would have been absolutely worth it!

image

After some shopping we decided to head back to the hotel to drop off our goodies.  Tina apparantly wanted to get in an extra workout for the day by walking down the up moving escalator.  In flip flops of all shoes too.  Funniest moment of the morning, hands down.  If only she would have opened up her shopping bag for tips from the crowd that gathered to watch.

image

Next stop: Fremont Street for the afternoon.

image

.

image

.

Lunch, gambling, cocktails, shopping and more walking.   We didn’t get to see the canopy light display due to us being there during the day, but Fremont street is a must to experience, regardless.

image

.

After Fremont Street we headed back to the Strip to check off our last bucket list items.

Stop 1: Sprinkle’s Cupcakes.

image

.

They have a freaking Cupcake ATM machine.  Yes, yes, I DID get mine from the ATM machine.   We need one of these babies in Omaha.

image

.

Next stop: The High Roller

image

5 of us purchased tickets to the 30 minute giant Ferris wheel.  This thing was MASSIVE.  Normally I am terrified of heights, but this thing moved incredibly slow and seemed so secure that it didn’t really phase me.  Shocking.

Oh, but I did take a Dramamine tablet prior. 😉

After the Ferris Wheel, Jessica & Cyndi split off to attend the Bone Thugs N Harmony concert.  Ya…. That happened.   Tina and Kristen grabbed pizza and headed back to the hotel.  Carrie, Tyree and I went to an outside bar for a few cocktails, then headed to dinner and finished up with a little walking before calling the Vegas trip an official rap at midnight.

Vegas Girls Trip 2015 was a success.   I had so much fun with each of these girlies.   It was a laid back, casual vacay.   Tyree and I actually served as the only connecting points for everyone.   I knew all the girls really well.  Tyree knew all of them but Tina, who she met briefly a few months back.    Carrie knew everyone but 3.   Cyndi only really knew 2 of us…. etc.    It was really cool to see how everyone got along.

And honestly, it was like we had all been friends for years.

Until next time.
