Sitting in my swanky hotel....alone :)

Arrived in Vegas on an uneventful flight that I had the pleasure of sitting by a chatty young man... okay, he might have been 30-35 but he was so nice and could tell I was not comfortable flying... he chatted while we took off and it made the trip go by fast. It was only 1hr 24min in the air.
For some reason I spilled my whole story to him about the band and fear of the plane seat and blah blah blah.... Now I think why couldn't I have just shut up already...

NSV: plane seat was awesome, plenty of room and the belt had 8-10" left on the tail of it!

Arrived and checked into a beautiful suite and thought about hanging and ordering something from in suite dining but couldn't find anything that sounded band friendly so check this shit out......
I went downstairs and entered a restaurant BY MY SELF and ordered a meal and enjoyed it quite a bit. (baked chicken breast and some yummy smashed yams)  Then promptly lost $50 in a slot machine and called it quits.
So now I am hanging in the room, watching some tv and thinking about hitting up the spa tomorrow for a haircut as I didn't get around to it before leaving. The rest of my crew gets here tomorrow afternoon so I may go do a walk of the strip and scout out some coffee if I can't get an appointment for my hair.

They actually have a scale in the bathroom! A Scale! nothing like keeping you accountable :) 
Well my peeps, I've bored you enough about my little adventure.....Goodnight!

  1. Sounds like fun :-)

    I can so relate to your chat on the plane - I always seem to find myself talking to strangers whilst traveling!

    Hope you get some time to enjoy yourself

  3. Yes, definitely go to the spa! Spend some time in the steam room or sauna, have a massage or something and luxuriate in your time alone and your new, hot bod. Have a great time!

  5. Ahhh...a day alone AND in Vegas! Sounds like fun. I would put in a complaint to the hotel about the scale--or reset it so it reads really low. LOL. I wonder what is going through their minds when they thought a scale would be a great accessory--why not a luffah (sp?)or a free bottle of wine or something useful.

  10. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Vegas, ALONE? I'd LOVE it!!! Seems hubby and I have such different tastes, it's sometimes hard for the 2 of us to do anything which pleases both of us. Of course, I am the person who enjoys going anywhere alone. Think it's left over from the days when the kids were little and I couldn't even be alone in the bathroom! Oh wait! Now I have 3 cats and 2 of them love the bathroom, so I STILL can't get any alone time in there!
