Las Vegas Vacation

I've finally found a few minutes to make a post... I've been awfully busy being in Vegas and all! My bf and I decided to spend Christmas in Vegas this year and escape the cold and ice and have a nice break from work.

I've been to Vegas once before and this time I had a very different experience. While the first time there was spent partying, drinking and dancing all night, this time I went to a bunch of shows/productions and did more touristy things.

Day 1: The Blue Man Group- This was my favorite show we saw.
Day 2: Cirque de Soleil's Ka- This show has an amazing set! And was basically just really rad
Day 3: Cirque de Soleil's Mysterie- This was Vegas's first and original Cirque show, so it has a bunch of random and weird things, but also lots of really cool acrobatics and pole climbing. It was also very funny. I recommend seeing it.
Day 4: David Copperfield- Some of this magic tricks were impressive of course, but I wouldn't see him again. Not only was it really cheesy, I didn't feel like he was putting any heart into it, and instead was just going through the motions.

There were two restaurants we ate at which I loved! One was Serendipity 3, outside of Ceasers Palace. They are famous for their deserts like their frozen hot chocolate and sundaes. We ordered a sundae to share and couldn't even finish it between the two of us it was so big and rich. The other restaurant I loved was The Sugar Factory outside of Paris. With gourmet cupcakes, hello kitty adornments, and lollipops, how could I not fall in love?! We went one day for dinner- I ordered a ratatouille crepe- and the next day for breakfast- I got the biggest pancake I had ever seen! It was the size of a pizza!We did other tourist things as well like check out Madame Tussuad's, wander through the various hotels, walk down Fremont Street and the Strip. We also went to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. There was a pool of stingrays that you were actually allowed to touch! I think stingrays are super cute so I was pumped to get to touch one!

Over all we had a really great trip. Despite having done so much there was still a ton of other things I wanted to do; like, go bowling, go to the neon bone yard, see the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon, go thrift store shopping, and go to more clubs. I guess I will just have to do all that next time!

Hope you all had a great Holiday!
