Fall Break in Las Vegas

I am officially back to the land of the working people. P.S. I hate it. Can't we just always be on vacation? No? Okay, well I guess I'll just tell you what we did while we were on vacation.

We just got back from 7 nights in Las Vegas. Don't get me wrong, Vegas is still our city, but 7 nights was a little long. Our butts dragged all the way home!

We packed in a ton in the week we were there!

I always love being in Vegas during March Madness or during football season. Everyone is so pumped to cheer on their teams. Our football gear is always a huge hit!


We saw Nathan Burton's comedy magic show. It was awesome, we really enjoyed it. We got our tickets on Groupon.com for $10 each! You can't beat that!

We saw Zarkana at the Aria Hotel & Casino. 


Wow, this hotel is gorgeous and Zarkana was AWESOME. It was one of our favorites!



We also saw Love at the Mirage. The music was good, but it wasn't our favorite show. 


It didn't have the WOW factor that I feel like most Cirque shows have. If you loved the Beatles, you would love this show.


We love the MYVegas app. We got our Zarkana and Love tickets for free. Plus we got 2 free buffets from all the station casinos. This allowed us to visit some more places we had never been to, plus get free food! That's a win-win!

We were also able to go to the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef Aquarium. 


It was really neat to see all the animals! 





We got to see the divers trying to get a tiger shark to go into a separate holding tank to get examined by the vet! We also got this free from MYVegas!

We stayed at the Gold Coast for 4 nights and the Golden Gate hotel for 3 nights.



We enjoyed both places, but I really like staying downtown, this is our room at the Golden Gate. We upgraded to a suite. 

We went bowling, watched The Martian in 3D (can you say awesome?!?) and The Intern. Oh yeah and we also got massages! 


Plus add in all the walking we did. We were busy people! Here are some of the random pictures from the week!










One of the best things to watch in Vegas is the fountain show at the Belliago. Here is a clip of one of the shows we watched this time!


We sucked in the gambling department this trip, but we can't always be winners, right? That's my story at least!

Until next time, 

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.


We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 


The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
