Sunday Funday from Vegas!

I'm on a very impromptu trip to Vegas this weekend.  One of my friends and her bf decided to come pretty last minute, and asked if my bf and I wanted to join.  We thought, why not!  So here we are lol.  It's actually been 2 years since I was here last!  That's crazy, considering it's only like a 4 hour drive from LA.  I actually really love Vegas lol.  I mean... it's a fun atmosphere, there's lots of entertainment, fine dining, and shopping.  I also kind of feel like playing poker again.  Not that I ever really seriously played, but for a while I did play a lot more.  Many casinos offer poker room rates which are much lower than their regular rates.  Besides, if you come to Vegas regularly, they will hook you up anyway.  So I think my new goal in life is to come at least 4 times a year!  Let's see how that turns out.  ;)

In other news, I got Invisalign this week.  I had been considering it for a while and finally decided to do it.  I don't really have a lot to fix.  Just a slight bite correction.  So my plan is only 10 months.  But of course that all depends on how things go, and there will probably be a few more months of refinement period afterwards.  I'm just planning on having these things for a good year.  So far, I hate it!  Lol.  Everyone says it's the most uncomfortable in the first few days and then you get used to it.  I guess I'm still in the getting used to it stage.  I just feel so much pressure on my teeth, and the edges irritate my tongue.  When I take them off to eat, my teeth are all sore which makes it very hard to bite and chew.  Of course just the simple fact that I need to take them off before eating or drinking anything other than water is annoying already.  Then I have to immediately put them back on afterwards because I'm trying to be compliant and wear them for the prescribed 22 hours a day.  Oh, and I sound like I have a lisp when I talk with them on.  Sigh.  I feel like I paid a bunch of money to torture myself lol.  I'll report back next week.  Hopefully I'll have gotten used to it.

This week was the last week of Get Glutes Month 11 workouts.  I was only able to go to the gym 3 times though, since I found out about Vegas late and couldn't workout on the weekend like I had planned to.  But for the 3rd workout, I did pretty much combine the 3rd and 4th workouts from the program.  So I still got all the exercises in and I'm fine with that.  I wish I had done more cardio though, to offset the calories I've partaken in on the weekend lol.  But there is always next week.

Saturday 9/26 - So it is still over 100 degrees in Vegas, so this my day time outfit:


And for night time, we went to Michael Mina at the Bellagio for dinner.  It was great but I'd say you have to plan to spend around $200 per person.  We all got the tasting menu which was actually a lot of food.  I posted a picture of all the courses on my Instagram here lol.  My party was pretty happy with it.  They were very very slow though.  We sat down at around 7, and had to rush them to get out of there by 9:30 since we were late for our Cirque du Soleil Mystere show (which was also great).  So here's my night time outfit:




I think my clubbing days are over.  So this was as "hoochie" as I'd want to go in Vegas now lol.  

Today we spent a lot of time at the Bucchanal Buffet at Caesars!  I have to say I was a little disappointed.  Last time I went there, I thought it was phenomenal.  But this time they kind of fell below the mark.  Not to mention the line was extremely long (2 hour wait at 2 pm).  We paid $25 extra per person to skip the line, which used to be $15.  But still better than waiting in line for 2 hours since time = money lol.  I just thought it was not worth $80 at all.  So that was probably my last time going there.  Although I still ate a lot making it the only meal of the day today!  We are going home tomorrow, so it will be back to the grind on Tuesday!  There will be a lot of calories to work off lol.

Anyway, since the night never ends in Vegas, I will be heading down to the casino and test out my luck again.  =P  Hope you all had a great weekend!
