Vegas Recap

As you know, I went to Vegas on vacation.  So I decided to give a few highlights my trip....

It was freaking cold. We went to Vegas last year when it snowed, and it was colder this time than it was last year. We Florida-folk don't handle weather like that well.

I didn't do my hair at all the entire time we were there and it didn't bother me one bit. You see, my hair is fairly long and super thick, making it somewhat of a chore to do anything with it. I did, however, wear headbands like everyday. I felt like a cute headband made up for the lack of fixing my hair.

During our first full day we watched the SEC Championship Game.  I am an Alabama fan.  John is a Florida fan.  This picture was taken before 'The Big Fight of '09' in which John and I argued in public over football... I can't say that I'm proud to admit that.  FYI- meters and football games could be fun, just not when your team beats the boyfriend's team , just saying...

My favorite part of the trip was going to see The Lion King.  AMAZING.  I'm not gonna lie, I teared up a little because it was stunning and absolutely beautiful.  If you ever get the chance you must go see it!  It is so worth it!

After The Lion King we ate at Roy's. The food is Hawaiian Fusion and it was yummy. I had a Lakanilau Roll, which is sushi with seared kobe beef wrapped around snow crab, tempura asparagus and avocado. It was to die for! And I also had some tuna on top of wasabi mashed potatoes.  It was absolutely delicious.

Our trip was great. We saw three shows, ate some yummy food, and hung out with some good friends.  I hate being that person that makes everyone stop every five seconds for a photo-op, so I didn't take many pictures.  I'm a little bummed, but it's all good. 

Ps- This last picture is for Alexandria because she loves flamingos, and there were flamingos at our hotel....

The recap is little on the random side, but it's all good because I happen to be pretty random.  I hoped you all enjoyed it!
