Viva Las Vegas!

So you may have noticed that I wasn’t around much last week. I was just in Vegas for a little bit of a getaway. I have to say it was so nice to get away, and I had the opportunity to sit at the pool with some cocktails as well as try out some wonderful restaurants. It’s funny though – we decided to go in April because it’s usually not that hot. We wanted to be able to enjoy the pool and be outside without sweating. Well what do you know? It was like 100 degrees almost every day that we were there. No joke. But we still had a blast.

Can’t really complain about this view at dinner…

While drinking this at The Sugar Factory

Stopped in the Bellagio to check out Jean Phillippe Chocolates

All of these desserts looked amazing

I couldn’t leave without trying the Gelato. I got Cappuccino and Oreo (on the bottom)

And you better bet I ate it all

Although I wanted to stick my tongue under the Chocolate Falls

A delicious drink from Trevi in the Caesars Forum Shops

We loved breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi in Paris. Too bad it wasn’t the real Paris.

But the BEST brunch in Vegas is Bouchon. I’m still thinking about it.

This was the best Cheese Danish I’ve ever had in my life.

I’m still dreaming about it. Seriously.

The main part of my breakfast was good too. Lots o’ bacon.

We went to Serendipity 3 for Brunch.

But really only so I could get one of these…

Frrrozen Oreo Hot Chocolate

And it was amazing.

BUT – I didn’t appreciate that the waitress asked me if I wanted Marshmallows (and proceeded to tell me that it’s so much better with them) – and didn’t tell me they cost extra. Seriously lady? At least be up front about it. I wouldn’t mind spending the extra money if I was told about it first, ya know? But for me to find out when I get the bill? That’s shady.

This drink from Wolfgang Puck Cafe in MGM was amazing.

I had that after we went on a Scoot Car Tour of Red Rock Canyon.

We rode around in these…

And we got to see some beautiful sites

Seriously…how beautiful is that?

I highly recommend trying this out. The two leaders were awesome. And we had so much fun!

And driving around in those little cars was so much fun! Can you believe they go like 60 mph?

It was hot that day, but with the breeze in that little car it didn’t feel that hot.

Which is a good thing.

Because it got HOT there.

So we spent a lot of time here:

And the drinks were refreshing

Even at Happy Hour!

You can’t beat $5 Sangria

And we went to Holstein’s at the Cosmopolitan so I could have this:

And let me tell you – I LOVED IT! I’m going to recreate it at home.

It was so good.

I could’ve had one every single day.

Even Freddy Kruger was out!

We got to see Kevin James & Ray Romano. They were funny.

I love Kevin James. The King of Queens is our favorite show!

What are your favorite things to do in Vegas? Any favorite restaurants?
