30 before 30 update: VEGAS BABY!


I'm a bit late writing this one... but do you all remember a while back when I wrote my 30 before 30 list? Well, I have finally checked a couple things off. One of them is VEGAS. I went to Vegas for Spring Break for the first time and it was such a blast!

The excitement began on Tuesday when I arrived. I checked in to my hotel. Went back to my room, settled in and checked my bank account. To my horror they had added an extra zero, charging me 10 times what I was supposed to have been charged!!! 


It was a long drawn out process, that you may have read about on facebook, but finally things were sorted out and I got a room upgrade.... Check out that jacuzzi tub. Not too shabby, huh?



 


The first evening I was there, my beautiful friend got married!  I am soo insanely happy for her!! 

They had a very private ceremony with close family and a couple friends at a very nice little chapel. I feel so honored to have been a part of it. Then, of course, the next couple nights were spent celebrating!


 
We hung out on the strip and checked out a few different casinos. I played a little on the machines, and played black jack for the first time! It was pretty fun, and I tripled my money ($40... high roller! LOL!).

My friends went home on Thursday, and my cousin & her other half drove up from So Cal to go to Viva Las Vegas: Rockabilly Weekender with me! 


It was such a blast!!! A weekend of dressing up, going to concerts, bowling, a car show, shopping, meeting models and drinking!


Ready to go out for the first day of Viva!


Hair took forever, but I love it!

Met the beautiful Doris Mayday.

Cherry Dollface and her fiance.


Masuimi Max and Angelique Noire. Maisumi was hysterical!!



With the gorgeous Micheline Pitt and Erika Reno

Bowling Fun...


Music & Dancing! 




My overall first impression of Vegas was great. It is a fun time for sure, but it gets expensive fast! I am not much for gambling, so I was concerned that it wouldn't be all that I hoped for, but there is so much to do aside from gambling! I feel like I didn't get to do a lot because we were at Viva for most of the time, so I can't wait to go back!

Have you been to Vegas? What was your favorite thing to do? I'd love to hear about it in a comment!
