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…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
