Road Trip Day 1 & 2 - Home to Las Vegas, NV

The weekend of December 18, 19 and 20, we had the chance to go to Las Vegas! We originally were going to go for a football game, but Andrew decided to sell his tickets. He made so much on his tickets though that it paid for our whole trip except food and activities so we decided to go anyway!

On Thursday, December 17, we drove from home straight down to Las Vegas! Andrew usually stays at South Point when he goes down for furniture market so we decided to stay there so he could show me around. :) The next morning, Andrew placed a couple of sports bets (I thought the Christmas tree at the betting counter was pretty cool all covered with sports balls. ;) ).

Then we hit up the outlets! Andrew spoiled me with a new Kate Spade wristlet!

From there we headed to the Stratosphere! We went straight to the top for a great view. :)

I love the Stratosphere shadow in this one!

After leaving the Stratosphere, we parked at Caesars Palace. There Andrew spoiled me again with a new Fitbit band from Tory Burch!

After leaving Caesars Palace, we walked across the street to The LINQ and visited Sprinkles Cupcakes under the shadow of the High Roller. :)

Then we had an early dinner at the Tilted Kilt while we waited for it to get dark. :)

Once it was dark, it was time to do a rotation on the High Roller! This was something I had wanted to do for a long time. I have this thing for Ferris wheels and this one in the biggest one in the world right now. :) Then we found out they were running a holiday special so instead of $36.95 per person at night it was only $20 per person!

They can also put up to 40 people at a time in each one of these cabins, but there were only 6 people in ours including us so we definitely hit it at a good time! A rotation takes 30 minutes so I was so excited to really see the Las Vegas lights at night!


Such a cool experience!

  1. Fun! I haven't done the High Roller yet, so I'm jealous. But I plan to on my next Vegas trip, when ever that ends up being.
