Viva Las Vegas

I went to Las Vegas this weekend with a friend. We bought tickets for the Miranda Lambert/George Strait concert at the MGM Grand so we drove down on Saturday. We left in the morning and got there early afternoon and found our hotel. It was right off the strip and just about a block away from the MGM Grand.

The concert was Saturday night and it was fantastic. I’ve seen Miranda before, but never George. It was really good, even if we were sitting pretty close to the top. We had some really nice people next to us and it just ended up being a great time.  

On Sunday morning, we drove over to Hoover Dam because I had never been there. We paid the 30 bucks to go inside the dam. It was fun to see and the tour guide was great. I just think it was a little pricey.  But now I’ve been there.

After the adventure at the dam we hit up a couple of the outlet malls and did some shopping. I bought a few things from Crabtree & Evelyn and then splurged and got me a new purse from the Fossil outlet.  We finished off the shopping at the Forum at Caesars Palace and I got a few things at Sephora and then we went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner and dessert.

Before dinner we also wandered around the casino because it was Super Bowl Sunday and there were all kinds of fans out. It was really a fun place to people watch for a bit.  We drove home on Monday.
Las Vegas isn’t my favorite place, but it is fun to visit once in a while.  My grandparents lived there when I was a kid and we used to visit them for a week every around Christmas so I have some really happy memories there.  It was a nice 3-day weekend and a much needed break. Now I’m back to work. And that’s good too.
