Yeah, yeah. I've been back from Vegas for awhile and I still haven't posted about it. Get over it. ;) I was distracted with some other personal things, then it was our one year anniversay and then I was being a lazy butt. So now, I think its time to let you know how my first time to Vegas went.
Hubs and I made it to Vegas around 10:00 on Wednesday morning. We found the Planet Hollywood, the hotel we were staying at, right away, but parking was issue. It took us about 15-20 minutes just to figure out where we were supposed to park for our hotel. Once we finally found that we walked over to the hotel; and what a walk it was. The hotel told us that our room wouldn't be ready until 1:00. So we decided to walk around.
That was an awful idea. Especially in flip flops. The first thing that happened to us in Vegas was we got stopped by one of those guys trying to offer you free tickets to a show if you just go listen to a presentation. He would not leave us alone. Eventually he asked us for a $20 "deposit" and at the point we played the "we don't have any money on us" card. We finally got out of there; it took awhile though. After an hour of walking we got tired and realized we were hungry so we stopped at a little food court. Hubs had Chipotle and I had Panda Express. Both were super tasty!
We got back to the hotel around 12:00, hoping that our room would be ready. And it was! We were relieved, but were not looking forward to walking all the way back out to our car to get our luggage. We went to our room first to rest for a bit then trekked all the way back to the car to get our stuff.
The rest of the day went as follows: casino action, Hubs won $300 from the Wheel of Fortune quarter slots, we went to dinner and paid way too much for cocktails [$9.50; that was the first and last time we did that on our stay in Vegas] and then some more slots.
In the middle of that I contacted Honey. We had talked about meeting up in Vegas since we were both going to be there at the same time. I wasn't sure if that was going to happen, but I was going to try! We finally met up at Imperial Palace so Honey could play some roulette. Afterwards, we watched the water show at the Bellagio; which was amazing. Go see it!
