143.8…On The Road Again
Ugh…we just got home from Vegas. There was SO much traffic! It only took us 4 1/2 hours to get there on Saturday and almost 6 to get home today. Boo!
Yesterday we met a friend at Grand Lux Cafe in the Palazzo Hotel for lunch. We all split the spinach artichoke dip. Why is that stuff so good!?!
I ordered the lunch pizza and salad:
After lunch I went shopping at the Palazzo and Venetian hotels. Not too much to report on except a couple pairs of cheap sunglasses. :)
I met my husband back at our hotel, The Cosmopolitan, for some gambling. Then it was time to head to the sports book to watch some Monday Night Football. We ordered a slice of pizza and wings. I just ate two of the wings….I didn’t want to ruin my dinner.
While we were watching the game, a guy walked into the sports book wearing a robe, slippers, sunglasses on his head and was carrying a bottle of tequila.
Only in Las Vegas.
We went back to our room and some of our friends came up to join us for a drink. An awesome thing about the Cosmopolitan hotel is the balconies! Check out our view of the Bellagio water show:
Of the strip:
Then it was time to go to dinner. Here is the dress I bought the other day:
We walked over to Mastro’s Ocean Club for dinner.
The restaurant has a special “outdoor” section that looks so cool:
It almost looks like a space ship. We got to eat inside the “space ship.” Pretty cool!
I enjoyed a glass of wine:
And we all shared a huge seafood tower:
They even lit it up:
I split a bone-in Filet Mignon with my husband and had some creamed spinach.
It was aaaaaamazing!
We all shared a chocolate lava cake for dessert:
I was so full when I left there….good thing that was all we were doing. I barely wobbled home. :)
This morning I grabbed another iced latte from downstairs. This time I went with the Irish cream flavor. Eh. I liked the English toffee better.
I also bought a yogurt parfait.
We got packed up and hit the road for home. I already knew what I wanted for lunch.
Chipotle!!! I’m now addicted!
I miss Vegas but I’m glad to be home. I missed the kids and am ready to get back to my healthy eats!
Have any healthy goals this week? Me: get back into the gym and watch my calories. I brought my gym clothes to Vegas…too bad I never worked out. Oh well.
Sounds like you had a great time in Vegas. I love Vegas...all the shopping and dining and hotels. I could care less about the gambling.ReplyDelete
