Getting Nailed in Vegas Baby!!


My flight was really early yesterday morning, so all I had on the way to the airport was coffee (much needed coffee!). At one point on the plane, I did eat my leftover hummus and veggie wrap I brought with me from Tuesday night’s dinner. It was exactly what I needed.

I’m guessing the three bloody mary’s and 2 beers on the way there counted as lunch.

Dinner was at the Eiffel Tower restaurant in the Paris casino. It was a french restaurant, so of course my dinner was off menu. I was created a lovely red kale, green bean, and mushroom dish. I think it was the best on at the table!


Yesterday was a wash, unless hiking around Vegas in spiky silver heels good. Today is a going to be a run day on the treadmill at the resort.


Well, we had a great and adventurous day yesterday! The flight was really early, and I traveled with my own 12 pack of vodka! Yes….if they are less than 3 ounces, you’re cleared through TSA.

We landed in Vegas around 11am, hit up the resort village we’re staying at, and got back to drinking. After a little while AC and I decided we needed a pedicure. The concierge at the resort pointed us towards a place down the street, and she and I took off while the other girls took naps and/or hug by the pool. What looked on the map like a block or two walk, turned into a nearly 2 mile hike into the ghetto of vegas. We found the studio – Get Nailed 24/7, and timidly walked into the door. We walk in the door wondering if it was a nail salon or a porn site. Anyway, we managed to get our pedicures, and admired the man there who looked better in a dress than I did.

We eventually got back to the room, chilled out for a bit, and then got ready for a night on the town! Tonight was our more formal night, and so we were all dressed up. When you go out, you realize that Vegas isn’t a dressy and glam place. It’s old people with fanny packs and hookers. We looked killer anyway.

Dinner was nice, and then it was off to the Excalibur Hotel for the Australian Male Review show, the Thunder from Down Under. It was fun and a little kitschy, but totally a good time.

We had intentions of staying out all night, and even had a second wind by then, but we eventually decided we were fading. By the time we went to bed, we had been up for 23 hours.

Today should be more fun, and I’ll be sure to update everyone….though things may be edited a bit 😉
