Yes, I’ve been a little MIA lately. There is just so much going on between my running, work, and all of our home projects. However, I figured I need to get back to it. What better way than to share my latest work trip – LAS VEGAS.
I’d like to say it was super exciting cause I’d never been to Vegas, or Nevada, for that matter.
We start with the early morning flight. Ok not super early, 7:30am, but I was landing in Vegas at 10:30am so early by Vegas standards.
The Hoover Dam
Super glad I looked out the window as we came in. I’ve never seen the Hoover Dam before so it was awesome to catch it from the air.
Desert and Mountains!
I’ve also never seen a desert before so I just LOVED checking it out for a while from the air.
I joked because based on our agenda for the conference I was really only going to get to see the airport. So, just in case
I played a quick slot when I landed. My dad asked me to play a dollar for him so I did! No, I didn’t win anything.
Please come to Tampa!!!
When I turned a corner I ran right into a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and freaked! It is the BEST coffee and I never get to have it! I wish I could have grabbed a second, so delish!
I caught an Uber to the hotel and then spent the day at the conference. Honestly, I crashed at 9pm cause it was midnight my time and I’d been up since 5am! I’ve never really experienced jet lag but I sure did this time. I woke up at 3am WIDE AWAKE! Thankfully, my roommate was also from Florida and having the same issue. So, at 4am we got up and went to the gym, cause why not!
After a full day of activities. We went to check out the Bellagio fountains. It was 11pm but I figured why not, it’s Vegas!
We also walked around a little bit and went into Caesar’s Palace. Which, FYI, the shops close at 11pm! However, the lights are all on and things were pretty to look at!
I got to head home the next day at 3:30pm Vegas time. I was grateful because we had an awesome pilot on the way home. He made sure to let us know that we were over the Grand Canyon. I didn’t snap and photos but it was absolutely beautiful! Something I really want to see in person!
I’m excited to get to mark this as a place I’ve visited! I’ve never been a big traveler, but I’m enjoying seeing more sights as I get older!Thanks for stopping by!
