Viva Las Vegas!!!!

My ever so fabulous (and constantly traveling) parents bought us (us being - my husband, brother, sister-in-law, and I) a trip to Vegas for Christmas - 5 days and 4 nights in Sin City - how cool are my parents?! They actually took us last year to see Beatles "Love" and as I mentioned here it is the most visually stimulating, beautiful, amazing, mouth-wide-open for 1.5 hours, art/show/concert that I have EVER seen! I mean it is beyond, words - I will never be able to explain it - it is that AH.MAZ.ING!! So, what I am saying is if you are a Beatles fan - hell, even if you're not - go! Go now! Really, go! And just when we thought it couldn't get any better they bought all 6 of us tickets again! And when we thought it couldn't get any better, the tickets were front row!!!!! Ahhhhh, I wanna go see it 20 more times!

Okay, okay let me focus - lets get back to the post and the pics - the stuff you really want to see! :)

So, if you are in Nashville you know how cold it's been and if you're not, then you are probably still cold too...that is what made this trip so lovely..........65-70 and sunny. The whole time! Ahhh, I am soooo ready for flip flops and sun dresses!


So, the first night we stayed at the Bellagio.....and this was our view! How gorgeous!! They do a light show every 30 minutes (I think? Maybe 15? can't remember, all I know is I saw A LOT of them! :)) and they are done by music, so in the room you can put it on a channel that plays all the music with it, pretty cool huh?!


Trey got excited.....


Dinner at Olives at The Bellagio....on the water of the water show (that is it going off right behind us!)
This restaurant was to die for, I mean it, to die! I have pictures of every single plate of food we got, but I won't bore you.....but know, it was freaking fantastic!


This is the wall/ceiling and the pastry shop, and yes that is all chocolate dripping around!


My mom and I at the Diamond Lounge in Paris (where we stayed the rest of the trip) at noon.....that's Vegas for ya! How cute are the mini martini shot glasses?!


My absolute favorite place on the strip, Mon Ami Gabi. It is a French Steakhouse at Paris with a huge patio on the strip overlooking the watershow (you thought I was kidding when I said I saw it a lot!), the best food, the best wine, and frites come with everything!!! And if you know me, you know fries are my utter weakness!! The best people watching spot you can get! :)


There is a pretty funny story behind this pic.....long story short the usher took this picture for us, told us it was really cute, then took my camera and gave me a ticket to get it after the show, she took it to lost and found and it took what seemed like an hour to find lost and found and the guy that had it to get my camera back. We were late for dinner with everyone....and this is what we ended up with.....good times!
"Really Cute", right?! :)


Lunch at Bobby Flay's MESA at Caesars Palace (You probably get this a lot. This isn't the real Caesar's Palace is it? -HA!!) The margaritas are delicious!!

And the burger......mmmmmm,


Beautiful, Paris!


Walking for miles and miles on the strip.....


This is the entrance to the newest hotel at City Center, Aria. Huge and very very cool!
That entire back wall looked like.........
...............this! And it danced around, so cool!!


The entrance to LOVE, all kinds of lights and contsant Bealtes - loved loved loved it!


We couldn't go without a stop here again! Very cool lounge!


Right after the show....we were a little jacked! :)


My fabulous mom and daddy!


The awesome floors.......and they changed colors!


Last nigt at dinner - at Mon Ami Gabi, again - my bro and his sweet sweet wife


Me and the hubs........I think Trey is tired of the camera........ :)

I have about 40 more pics, but I think you get the gist. We had an absolutely amazing time and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to my Momma and Daddy! You guys rock!!!
