I wanted to share with you all my latest adventure. I was in Vegas from Thursday morning until Sunday moirning and had a blast. THe reason for the trip was to celebrate my college graduation. About 17 of us went and most of it was family from Mexico. I was really excited that they all got to go since it was more of a hassle for them to travel to the US. We stayed at the Circus Circus hotel and lucky for us, we were all able to stay in the same floor (not so lucky for the other guests but I will get to that later.) Here is a breakdown of what we did:

Thursday - went to the Hoover Dam and threw a coin into it. We did it so that we would have good luck with the gambling that we were going to do. After that, we stopped at the premium outlets so that some of my family members could shop. OMG, can they shop. We then all got dressed up and went to dinner. After that, we got in a hummer limo (I love those) and rode to the Rio hotel were we went dancing for a while. The crowd that was there was sort of rowdy so we decided to go gamble. We ended up at the Ceasar Palace and went to a nightclub called Cleopatras. They played some great Latin music and it got us all in a great mood. Then we went to the Paris Hotel and after that, most everyone wanted to go back to the hottel (it was 4am) but my cousin JJ, his friend and I werent done for the night. I ended up gamblinig until 9am. Yikes! I waas walking on the strip with a cold Corona at 9am. How scandalous! As I walked back into my room, my mom and sister were already showered and ready to go.


Friday - after getting two hours of sleep, we proceeded to go to the Bellagio for brunch. it was amazing. I think we spent close to two hours there. YUM YUM YUM!! WE then walked the strip and visited the hotels. i should mention, out of the 17 of us that went, only three of us had ever been to Vegas. So it was an eye opening experience for all of them. Once we got into the Ceasars Palace, I of course raced to the MAC shops with one of my cousins and spent close to an hour there.
My cousin got a makeover and bought close to $300 worth of merchandise. Then we went to the Paris Hotel and got on top of the Eiffel Tower. What an awesome view. It was really windy so we got down real quick. After that, we all went to dinner at a Japanese steak house as a celebratory dinner for my graduation. It was a great and yummy dinner. Some of my family went back to the hotel (the older folks
) and then we were ready to gamble to more. I think that night I got back into my room at about 4 am. Not too bad...


Saturday - visited more hotels (the Venetian, Treasure Island, Luxor, Excalibur) and made a stop at Sephora. Didn't buy anything there with the exception of some lip balm because my lips were chapped and I was really hung over. Went back to the hotel and took a nap. Got ready to go out for the night. A bunch of us decided that we wanted to see Zumanity (a Cirque Du Soleil show) and it was amazing. Anyone who goes to Vegas needs to see this. its for people 18 an dover so no kiddies allowed. Its not your typical circus. After that, we went to the Wynn Hotel (which is the newest hotel in Vegas, it opened on April 28, 2005) and it is awesome. Had drinks at one of the bars there and saw two of the water shows. We were there until about 4:30 am. Had the most expensive martini known to man ($17 for a Grey Goose martini). But it was gooooooooooood! After that, some of us went back to my hotel room because my mom, sister and I were leaving at 9am. We ate some cheese and drank some wine and talked the morning away. We were laughing so hard that security had to come knock on our door and tell us to be quiet.


It was such a great trip and I wish I was still there with my family. it was a great way to celebrate my college graduation.

Anyways, sorry if this post is so long but I just wanted to share it with you guys. Here are some pics from the trip.

Awesome, congrats on getting your degree! I will be so happy when I'm done with school. I have about 2 1/2 years left. Sounds like you had a blast in Vegas. That's cool that so many in your family were able to go. When we went to Vegas in January they were working on the Wynn Hotel. It looked really nice.

I love the Forum Shops. They so many types of stores that you could spend so many days there. They are a tad on the expensive side but well worth it.

The MAC store was sort of disappointing. They were out of a lot of stuff (not talking about the D'Bohemian line) and it is tiny! They did have plenty of MA's around but because it was so packed, you needed to wait your turn.

They also have the Fashion Mall by Treasure Island which has a Nordies that has a MAC counter. I didn't check that mall out but it will have to be visited next time I go.

I got up to Saturday and I was already exhausted.
Sounds like a great trip. I have yet to make that first trip to LV, but I'm hoping a special friend and I will sometime this year. Congrats on your graduation!!!

I was exhausted too but I figure that all these people made this special trip to celebrate ME that I had to give it my all. At my ripe age of 25 (soon to be 26) I was already starting to feel old.

If you need any recommendations on things to do, let me know. I have my there 5 times now and I am always finding new things.

Zumanity was amazing. I have seen one of the Cirque De Soleil show before, Alegria, and it was definately more family oriented. This one was for adults and it was so passionate and erotic. It really drew you in. The music was amazing. if anyone wants a copy of the CD, let me know and I will burn one for them. Its too bad that it is not out on DVD yet.
