Well, our first trip away post baby #2 was a success.

We were in Vegas for 4 nights 5 days and it seemed like forever! Both Mike and I needed to get away and reconnect again. We both needed to unplug from work, relax and enjoy just being us. It was everything.

Honestly, I thought it was probably one of the best trips that we’ve had to Vegas thus far. Minus the fact that we couldn’t see all the shows we wanted because everyone decided to take a “break” the week we were there. (ahem.. BackStreet Boys)

But even without the shows it was still great.

We laid out by the pool basically everyday. Rain or Shine. (and yes it rained a couple days while we were there, in and out) We went to the Day Club Pool, which was an interesting site. It’s basically a bunch of singles who are prowling around looking for their next “hook up.” Very entertaining to watch… which for Mike and I was fun because we love people watching.

And let me tell you. Vegas. That is some good people watching.

After we hung out by the pool, we got dressed up and went to some fabulous dinners! One of our favorites, STK Steak which is in the Cosmopolitan and Giada which is in the Cromwell. This time we tried a new place, Jean Georges Steakhouse which is in the ARIA. And there I finally tried my first Oyster on the halfshell. So think raw oysters topped with some sauce and then slurp it down.

I was seriously so proud of myself. Although to be honest when the waitress put it in front of me and I moved the raw oyster with a fork I had a mild panic attack. It was mushy and slimy. Ugh… Mike must have saw my face because he put his hand on my hand and said “don’t overthink it. If you overthink it, you won’t like it because you’ve already told yourself you won’t.” So I took a deep breathe, topped it with lemon juice, cocktail sauce and a little Tabasco (per the waitresses recommendation) and ate it.

Honestly, it wasn’t as bad as I thought. It was pretty good. Although, because I’m a texture person and everything in that bite was one note I think I’d like it more if it was on a cracker and had some crunch to it. But I did it! That’s the important part!

Beyond dinner we did a few shows which is always fun and not something we typically do back home. We saw Jeff Dunham (a hilarious ventriloquist, Absinthe (probably one of the best shows in Vegas) and MindFreak which is the Criss Angel magic show. It was so much fun. I seriously can’t wait to go back, whenever that is!
