I ain’t lost, just wandering

All I can think of is Vegas, Vegas, Vegas. I have about a month before I go. (leave on Oct. 14) I don’t like a scheduled vacation but I’ve been apprehensive about what the hell I would do in Vegas since I don’t gamble. So I decided to have somewhat of a plan. It isn’t too planned but I have enough to do.

Tuesday: I arrive at 1PM I can’t check into my hotel until 4pm so I’m going to the mall beside the hotel and grab a bite to eat at Cheeseburger Las Vegas (a restaurant only in Vegas and Hawaii). I will have my suitcase with me so I can’t go into any stores. Once I check into the Elara, I will be in awe of the great suite and probably not want to leave. The suite is about as big as my house! I have nothing else plan for Tuesday. I will probably walk the strip when it gets dark and that’s it.

Wednesday: My first full day in Las Vegas! I hope I got some sleep. At 8AM, I’m going to the Bellagio for their breakfast buffet. Afterwards, I will wonder around and window shop.  I’m so excited about wandering around the Bellagio. Then I have a hotel meeting back at my hotel at 10:45. Free time until 7PM. I’m considering walking to Epic Thift Store. I love thrifting! I’m just not sure I can walk 6 miles (total ) with my foot problems. But it would be so cool to go to a Vegas thrift shop…off The Strip. Maybe I’ll take a cab? Then it is time to get ready for Britney Spears! I’m hoping to get VIP tickets. ::crossing fingers:: I am buying my tickets the Sunday or Monday before I leave. Then I’m free for the night. I’ll be drinking. I’ll be drinking. 🙂 Oh yeah, have to get dinner somewhere.

Thursday: My last full day in Vegas. Short trip.  Breakfast at someplace Vegas- like. I’m considering the buffet at Caesars Palace but I’m not sure I want to spend that much money on food. Regardless, I have to spend some time at Caesars. At 11AM, I have a dolphin show at the Mirage. I am definitely going to Kardashian Khaos at the Mirage after the show (judge away). They have these cheap guitar picks and a latte mug I really want. Free time. Then at 5:30 I’m going to the Hitzville show (Motown tribute show). Afterwards I have a  $50 dinner gift certificate to use. I’m not sure where I can go to dinner yet. I should probably check that out.

Friday:  Ugh. I have to leave. I have a 5.5 hour flight to New Jersey. That is a looong flight to me. Then I get on another (short) flight to go home.

I’m the most excited about being able to drink fruity alcoholic drinks. 🙂 I don’t have to drive anywhere so I can drink in restaurants!!!1!!! I will drink so much in Vegas…but I won’t get drunk. I will definitely have at least 2 drinks a day. I also want to try the roller coaster at New York, New York. I have never been on a roller coaster in my life! Maybe I’ll even go to a club (sooo not in the plans). I’ve never been to a club.

So what did you do in Vegas? Britney, dolphins and drink. Sounds good to me.

P.S. I am totally going off my #NoRedMeat (or pork) diet during my Vegas trip. Then when I get back I’ll do a cleanse.

Knitting projects of the week: No need for weekly pics since the pieces don’t look much different week to week. I worked on my shawl and hat. I want to take a knitting project on the plane. I think I’m taking something new and easy. I would hate to take something I’ve been working on and have something happen to it. I will probably start a new shawl or scarf.


I’m supposed to do my juice cleanse this Sunday.  I have my organic apple juice ready to go.
