We met up with Betsy and Jeremy (our San Diego besties and journey buddies) final weekend and had the perfect time procuring, playing, people-watching, and consuming all the ridiculous meals. It was our fifth journey to Vegas collectively (!) and we wished to strive a brand new resort. We sometimes love the Venetian and Bellagio, however determined to remain on the Wynn and have been NOT disenchanted. It’s undoubtedly our new place. I want I’d have snapped a pic of our room with the panoramic view. The whole lot was not too long ago renovated, the rooms and property have been attractive, and the service and meals have been glorious. Extremely suggest it in the event you’re planning a visit to Vegas anytime quickly.

Additionally wished to say right here that I booked the journey utilizing our AMEX platinum card, which has SO many advantages. We get free entry to a number of airport lounges (clutch when touring with the youngsters) and in addition get resort credit score, late checkout, and room upgrades when out there. It’s by far my favourite bank card, particularly for motels and journey.

Friday afternoon, the Pilot and I walked across the Strip and into the Caesar’s Boards outlets, then stopped for appetizers and iced tea at True Meals. It was that difficult level of the day if you don’t desire a full lunch to destroy your dinner, however undoubtedly need just a little snack to carry you over. True Meals was excellent! We had dinner reservations that night time on the Mirage, which is the place we met up with Betsy and Jeremy.

ALWAYS the seafood tower:

The Pilot and I shared a Wagyu steak, and in addition ordered Caesar salad, broccolini, and the perfect onion rings to share with the desk. The whole lot was scrumptious and perfectly-cooked. After that, we had tickets to see LOVE, which is the Beatles-themed Cirque du Soliel present.

Cirque tends to be just a little trippy, however I at all times recognize the immersive expertise and breathtaking performances. We’ve seen a couple of Cirque du Soleil exhibits and this was in all probability my favourite one! (I additionally love O on the Bellagio.) It additionally made me notice how a lot I like Beatles music? Each single track that got here on, I believed, “Oh, I really like this track.”

We referred to as it an earlier night time as a result of Betsy and I have been signed up for a Saturday am SOULCYCLE class. It was my first one and I completely want we had a studio right here in Tucson. I’ll undoubtedly hunt down extra lessons once we journey! The trainer J was so enjoyable and had a ton of vitality. I additionally loved the truth that SOULCYCLE isn’t targeted on screens or metrics; you push your self relying on the way you’re feeling and what you want from the exercise. The 45-minute class flew by and I used to be drenched in sweat afterwards.

After class, we grabbed breakfast from Urth Caffé, which was additionally conveniently situated within the resort. I had the gluten-free avocado toast with hen sausage and a decaf almond milk latte:

We went again to the room to alter after which walked to the Paris resort for lunch at one in all our fave spots, Mon Ami Gabi. They’ve modified the menu (it’s a lot smaller now), however I had an superior salmon and kale salad.

After that, we parted methods. The boys went off to gamble and Betsy and I set off for procuring at Dry Bar. We shopped for hours on the Discussion board Retailers and Trend Present mall. Vegas has EVERYTHING.

After our procuring social gathering and our contemporary blowouts, we received prepared for dinner at RPM Italian, which opened not too long ago.

I’ve been desirous to strive RPM (OG reader pals will keep in mind my lady crush on Giuliana Rancic) and it exceeded my expectations by a landslide. It’s the perfect Italian meals we’ve had exterior of Italy. The whole lot was beautifully-plated and SO flavorful with out being greasy or heavy. We had stuffed squash blossoms, caviar and burrata, contemporary pasta, cocktails, and I had the fish for my entree. We additionally loved an exquisite dessert (I can’t keep in mind what it was referred to as, nevertheless it was like a baked alaska that they flambéed desk facet, with a lot gusto.)

Dinner was AMAZING. Betsy and J went again to the resort to sit back and the Pilot and I spent the late night time exploring the strip, choosing up Milk Bar for the kiddos, and having fun with a cocktail. I can’t consider how a lot I walked on Saturday! My watched died, however earlier than it did, I had already hit 25k steps!

Sunday morning was extra low-key. We simply had breakfast on the resort the our pals earlier than catching our flight again to Tucson. It was the right little recharge of a weekend, and I’m so joyful we get to see this crew once more subsequent month! (plus all the youngsters can hang around collectively!)
