Hey there, happy Friday! Today is an especially happy Friday because Laura and I are in Vegas for the weekend. We got here yesterday morning and we are having a total blast so far.
The view from our room at the Cosmopolitan. . .
Our room. . .
Lunch. . . super good!!
Sisters. . . both with pink problems. . .
Afternoon pool time. . .
Followed by a quick workout. .. Laura had to check out the boxing ring. .. I mean, seriously have you ever stayed in a hotel with a boxing ring? Craziness in Vegas. . .
And then some wandering. .. and if you go to Vegas – you must! check out this chocolate place – Vosges (in Cesar’s Palace). .. samples and deliciousness.
Then, dinner!! When in Vegas – you have to go to at least 1 buffet. Laura had heard good things about the buffet at Cesar’s Palace –Bacchanal (literally means feast of the Gods!). And it was super good. My highlights –> the best tacos I have had since living in Mexico, the sweet potato tator tots and fries and the dessert.
And yes, 3 out of the 4 pictures I took were of the desserts.
A quick stop at the Bellagio fountains – one of my favs – and we were back home for a earlier night to rest up for our weekend. . .
I am here for a medical conference (rheumatology and musculoskeletal medicine baby!), which is only from 8-1 every morning, and then Laura and I have the rest of the day to hang out. She is currently sleeping in and I am waiting for my conference to start. The only problem with Vegas is that it is 2 hours behind MN, so I was awake at 5am!!
I stayed in bed until 6am and then decided I might as well get up. . . I hit up the fitness center for some treadmill time –> 6 miles and a beautiful sunrise over the Las Vegas strip with the mountains in the background. #gooddecision.
Now, just have to get my latte fix and I will be good to go!
We are planning on doing some walking around today, more laying by the pool, checking out Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant BURGR, and heading to downtown Las Vegas for some gambling and the light show.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Vegas?? Any recommendations for Laura and I?
And what are you up to this weekend???
