Adventures in Vegas

As promised on Friday, pics of the Vegas trip are here!!!
Vegas is certainly an adventure...if you've been you know what I mean!

As I said in this post, Vegas was not relaxing. I did a TON of walking around, looking at all the hotels and things around the hotels. And I got in a bit of mall shopping (or window shopping at least!) which is always fun.

The one thing that we LOVED about Vegas was all the great restaurants. There were SO many to choose from, and the ones that we picked did not disappoint! What was even better was most of our meals were completely free because Jon was there for the conference!

So I will leave you with pictures to tell the rest of our Vegas adventure! Enjoy!

Ohhh, my feet were in paradise here!!! I'm obsessed with particular, red bottom ones! If only my budget was as excited as I was : ) Either way, it was fun looking!

World's largest chocolate fountain!!! Amazing!

This was my favorite meal of the entire week!!! At Emeril's Table 10. We started with maple cured bacon (which sounds great, but was even better...INCREDIBLE!!!!) & veal cheeks. We then moved on to lamb chops with brussel sprouts and my personal fav, lobster macaroni and cheese! YUM!We went to see Phantom which was amazing. We got to sit in the 4th row which was quite the experience!I loved walking by the "Eiffel tower" pretty much every night. Next up, walking by the real one!In front of the gondola rides at the Venetian. On second thought, next up Italy : )The beautiful Bellagio fountain!I won it "big" on this bad boy Panda machine! And apparently I bust out into an awkward robot dance when I win money : ) At the Foundation Room on the rooftop of Mandalay Bay. This was Jon's favorite meal of the week (lamb chops) favorite wine of the week (Louis Martini Cabernet).So there you have it! Our Adventures in Vegas!

While I thoroughly enjoyed my time off from the craziness of the PICU and grad school, it was nice to come back to the comforts of home. And while the Vegas adventure came to an end, certainly the life of this PICU nurse did not!!

Now begins the adventure of studying for boards and job hunting! There truly is never a dull moment in this PICU nurses life, and I wouldn't want it any other way!
