Las Vegas 2014 - Part 2

The 1st show we went to that week was Cirque du Soleil's "O". They don't allow pictures during the show, but I loved their ceiling and couldn't resist taking a picture before the show began. The show was awesome! It was the most expensive one we did while there, but it was worth the money.

The other highlight of the trip was Bass Pro Shop. Since it was my 2nd time there, I didn't take as many pictures. But I still had to take a few for Josh. 

I wanted to get Josh's Christmas shopping done, but since they are located in a warmer climate, they didn't have the things I wanted. So I'll just have to order it online. But I did buy Christmas for most of his family there. I'll wait until then to post those pictures. I did buy Josh a few things while I was there. He has declared the coffee mug is his new favorite because its so big. I think the Hershey one is just as big, but he hasn't used it yet. 

The 2nd show of the week was at Treasure Island Casino. My mom's condo always does a sales pitch to get you to buy or upgrade. The reward we chose was 2 tickets to Cirque du Soleil's Mystere, including dinner at The Buffet in the Treasure Island Casino. I've never tagged along for the sales pitch, but decided I would this year. We got the SLOOOOWEST lady. She would literally walk 5 steps and have to stop and catch her breath. She was an older lady and I think she just does it to get out a few times each week so she can eat bacon without her family getting after her. I actually left early, but my mom had to stay for the whole pitch before they would give her the tickets. We looked at the tickets online and we got a screaming deal, which was a good thing since it took a few hours!

Since my mom had paid for all the gas to travel and the condo fees, I decided to buy us both tickets to see Wicked. While we were waiting for the show to start, we learned it was the last night the production would be there. Neither of us had seen it before and we loved it! I'm so glad we were able to go. 

Our last day in Vegas was very relaxing. I decided to spend the morning at the Spa located in the South Point Casino, which is right next to the condo. They wouldn't allow you to have your phone turned on inside, so I didn't get any pictures. But let me just say it was pure heaven! I spent some time in the Jacuzzi before my massage. And again after my massage. As I was leaving I asked them if I could just buy a day pass in the future and found out I could. So if I go again, I'll probably spend a lot more time there.

The last night, we decided to eat out at a Mexican restaurant a friend suggested called Ricardo's. It was really good. I'll spare you the picture of my dinner, but I couldn't resist this gorgeous cake they had on display to promote their catering business.

I am so jealous of all your shows! I love that you bought magnets at them all. That's what I do too. ;) Looks like it was a great trip!
