5 for Friday: Las Vegas Getaway

Linking up with Darci, April, Natasha and Christina for 5 on Friday!  Here are 5 fun things we did on our Vegas vacation last week.


1. Party!
When in Rome!  We thoroughly enjoyed the nightlife!  From bars and clubs to shows and sights, the Vegas nighttime playground was thrilling to explore ;)

 
 
 

2. National Treasures 
We took a couple day trips to visit Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.  As much as I like to tease JK for encouraging me to visit places I read about in history books or studied in geography class, they were both quite the site to see.  The history of the Colorado river, droughts, flooding, and the great depression were brought to life with our visits to these national treasures.

 




3. Gamble (a little)
Neither of us are big gamblers, but we did bet on the national championship game (I picked Auburn) and play a little blackjack.  No big wins or losses to report, but it would be nice if the sports bets could pay out for the team that deserved to win....

4. Eat, eat and eat
Ya'll, food in this town is serious business!  From buffets to cafes, we ate and ate and ate until we couldn't move.  That's the best part of vacation, right?


5. Tourist stops
Walking the Las Vegas strip is probably the only way I didn't gain 10 pounds last week.  We loved checking out the sights and sounds of Vegas.  We ventured Fremont Street, loved the Bellagio fountians, and checked out a few shops Nashville isn't graced with (new fav men's store-Suit Supply).
