The Beach Babes Take Las Vegas

I think in the last two weeks I have only been home 4 or 5 days.  I have a little catching up to do!!

Two weeks ago I headed to Las Vegas with the Beach Babes - amazing women I have known over 20 years!
We stayed at the World Mart Condos that Julie and Shauna are owners in.  It was a ways from the strip but they had a free shuttle that took us back and forth.

The weather was amazing!

I tried to pretend I was back in Paris - didn't quite work!

Or maybe I should have pretended I was in Rome!

or New York City!

Regardless of where the Beach Babes go they have fun and we did!

We saw two shows while we were there.  Friday night was Le Reve which was totally amazing!

 And Saturday night we saw Donny and Marie and I was in love!

We also walked and walked and walked and walked - I think we almost made it up and down the entire strip!  We checked out all the amazing, over the top hotels.  My favorite was the Bellagio with the beautiful chihuly glass ceiling.

 They had some pretty amazing holiday decor too.

We enjoyed an amazing buffet brunch at The Wicked Spoon - this was no Golden Corral!!

And we had to enjoy some frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity!

Ok - so I had to enjoy it twice!  April and I had dinner there before one of the shows while the other gals were at the David Copperfield Show.

 We had a glorious time and just enjoyed being together.  Las Vegas is a little over stimulating after a few days but fun!

On the recommendation of several blog readers we had lunch at the Burger Bar.  Not overly impressed.

The shows outside the hotels on the strip at night were fun to watch. 

The water show at the Bellagio

and the Volcano show at the Mirage.

We ended our stay in Vegas with the Gospel Brunch at The  House of Blues - so fun!

I did manage to lose one dollar in one of these!  Yeah - I live on the edge!

Viva Las Vegas!
