Back to Life, Back to Reality

The Aria Hotel

My Mama and Aunt

Well, I'm back from Vegas and back to Reality. (Sigh.) I had a wonderful time with my mom and aunt from San Diego who I go with every year. The weather was extremely hot so we lounged by the pool in the mornings and afternoons and gambled/went to shows in the evening. The first show we saw was comedian Vinnie Favorito at The Flamingo where we were staying. His show was highly offensive and raunchy but hilarious at the same time. It was an interactive show and he basically made fun of people in the audience for about 80 minutes. I found myself turning to complete strangers sitting beside us with the look of "Oh my GOD, did he just SAY that???" on my face. At the end of his routine he gave away tickets to another comedy show playing on the strip and I won them by literally screaming like an idiot. (I was the loudest.) So he brought me up on stage and made fun of me being a blonde. At the end of his shtick he told me to kiss him on the cheek as a thank you for the tickets and as I leaned in for the kiss he quickly turned his head and kissed me on the lips! Hardy har har. Too bad the show I won the tickets for sucked. As in BAD. Stinky cheese-bad. But that's okay, that night we saw Cirque Du Soleil's Viva Elvis show at the new Aria Hotel and it was amazing! I also did some shopping in Sin City at the Premium Outlet Mall and at Victoria's Secret which we do not have in Canada yet. And I bought some awesome (but expensive) skin care products at a kiosk in the Planet Hollywood Mall that I will share with you in an upcoming post. I played the slots too and lost some money but at least I didn't go home entirely broke! Oh, and I still got a bit of a tan, even wearing SPF 100! ; ) I hope you had a great week! Stay tuned for a giveaway shortly!

This post makes me want to go to Vegas sooo bad. It's been almost two years since I've been. I stayed at the Flamingo too, it's a great location.
