Best Laid Plans

Sometimes you plan outfits for a trip. Sometimes you try on said outfits approximate five times and you think you have nailed it. Nothing could be improved on and you are just simply good to go. Then you arrive at your trips destination and you try on an outfit. You look in the mirror and go “What on earth was I thinking? This doesn’t even look good!” I felt this way about half the clothes I packed for Vegas. I kept on trying clothes that I was so excited about before the trip but something was just off. So what’s a girl to do? Go shop at Zara across the street, five minutes away. And when that Zara happens to be having a massive sale, you let out a little scream and try to not look too giddy.

Thankfully Zara saved the day and just to happened to go with the heels and purse I had already brought to Vegas. I went to Zara originally the first day we were there and just got these items. But then I had immediate regret and the next morning I rushed over and walked in the doors the moment they opened. I bought a few more things and it was the perfect amount of retail therapy for a busy weekend. 

After I went shopping Andrew and I decided to go to the hot tub at the Venetian. The main level pool was being remodeled so I asked about where the other pools were. We were shown one that was completely empty and the guard said no one had been there all day. So Andrew and I had the entire pool/courtyard/three hot tubs to ourselves. I had gotten into the tub first and Andrew realized we needed towels. He put his phone back in his shorts and left. He came back and we relaxed for 30 minutes. Until we realized….his phone was still in his shorts. As was his wallet. That ended the relaxing morning promptly. Thankfully Andrew wasn’t too bummed out and we decided to just deal with the dead phone when we got back to Kansas. 

The rest of the day we spent playing blackjack at the Bellagio. I had refused to play it the previous trip because the tables were so crowded and it was nothing but older men playing. This time we found a really nice dealer, which makes a HUGE difference in how fun the game is, and I actually won money!
