Favorite Things Thursday!

With my upcoming vacation (I know, everyone is sick of hearing about it! Lol) I wanted to blog about one of my favorite places which is also the kickoff to my trip home and to wonderful boyfriend.... VEGAS! If you've never had the opportunity to visit Sin City, I suggest you do! This was actually where ex-hubs and I spent our honeymoon on our journey to our new base here in Utah. We stayed at the Aladdin which is now Planet Hollywood
What we didn't know on our arrival that day was that this was the last night the Aladdin would be the Aladdin. The next night was the grand reveal of Planet Hollywood. Anyone know who owns PH?? Sylvestor Stallone along with some other big name celebs. We got to see him across the casino floor and for a small town girl from small town GA, that was huge!
After that we ventured to Vegas a few times a year and have enjoyed some of its beautiful perks such as the Bellagio Water Show
And the Treasure Island Sirens of TI show
Vegas is home to many things to see and do from free to pricey. We stuck with mostly free and would spend our time wandering the various hotels and scenery. Just going in and out of the casino's is fun! They each have unique themes and specialties among them. One of my absolute favorites is the Venetian and I was lucky enough to go on a romantic gondola ride with my (ex) hubs. Too bad it wasn't all I ever dreamed about with a drunk husband and his friend almost tipping us out of the boat. Good and bad thing about Las Vegas, alcohol is literally sold in excessive gallons on street corners!

This trip to Vegas I will be staying at Circus Circus and I hear it will be quite entertaining. I've never been in this particular casino before but I look forward to something new. Lets just hope there aren't any clowns around, or I'll get no sleep. Me = deathly afraid of clowns.

I won't be blogging while I'm away but I look forward to catching up with all of you once I return and hopefully having a romantic (EEK!!) reunion story with boyfriend!! Love to you all and have a great weekend and upcoming week!!
