"I Love The Vegas!"

Is it seriously July already?! Where has the year gone? Well, Jeremy and I just got back from our little vacation to LAS VEGAS! We had had this vacation planned for about a month and half and were definitely looking forward to getting away for a bit. Just like our trip to Vegas, earlier this year, we met up with our good friends, Greg and Britany, for our fun filled weekend.

We stayed at the Planet Hollywood during our three and a half day trip and enjoyed hanging out in "The Vegas." The Planet Hollywood hotel is still in the process of getting a "face lift" from it's former life as the Aladdin. The decor of the casino, lobby and pool were very modern; however, to our slight disappointment, our room on the 10th floor was still the Aladdin motif! Bummer. Maybe next time we'll get to see the modern and chic rooms.

On Friday night, we had a great time at Rumjungle in Mandalay Bay. Rumjungle is a restaurant/club with a fun atmosphere and delicious food. Plus, what club in Vegas would be complete without go-go dancers in elevated cages!

During the day on Saturday, Britany and I went to a beauty trade show, which was the whole reason this trip came to be. The trade show was fun and there were so many cool hair, makeup and nail vendors. While wandering through the show, I bought a curling iron for way cheap and we bought some very delicious, oven baked popcorn! While Britany and I were at the trade show, Jeremy and Greg entered a poker tournament in our casino. And a big congrats is in order for my poker-playing-husband, who placed 9th out of 112 people and won $118! Woo Woo!!

Besides all that, we spent the rest of the weekend laying out by the pool, taking turns showering in the bathroom with no door (kinda weird), playing in the casino, eating, and my personal (I got some new makeup and a cute new pair of jeans)!

All in all, it was once again another fun weekend in Vegas! Of course, Jeremy already wants to plan another trip back, and I'm all up for it as long as he keeps his promise that we can finally go see "Phantom of the Opera." :)
Viva Las Vegas!

It sounds like you guys had a great time! Tell Jeremy to ask Jared about Phantom of the Opera...he didn't want to go either, but he LOVED it and would go again if given the chance! You guys look great in your pics! I'm glad you had fun shopping!
