The Wedding That Didn't Happen
BUT! Since it was Vegas and so cliche' I thought it would be fun for The Hubbo and I to get married while we were in Vegas! (Yes, I know we have been married for almost 11 years now, you get the idea). The extent of my planning to make this happen included packing a dress and a pair of heels so I'd look put together in the picture. After all, the picture is really what I wanted the most.
I did absolutely ZERO research on price, venues, etc. So the afternoon after the race The Hubbo and I went to a Starbucks, got out our phones, and started to see what it would take to make this happen. When we started pulling up themed Vegas weddings we were a little shocked to see that most of them were in the $800-$1500 range! Um no thanks!
I was thinking like a fast and furious 10 minute ceremony with Elvis leading us as we vowed our Hunk-o-Burning Love for each other with a quick photo and we'd be done with it. And I was hoping to do this all for less than $200. Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Elvis!
Turns out, Vegas has gotten real fancy y'all! The cheapest one we could find was the Wedding Wagon where they meet you at a location and do the ceremony and you buy the pictures or whatever else was in the package but they failed to call me back or answer my text. Rude!
So, sadly, we weren't able to get married in Vegas. Whomp Whomp!
But, we are married in real life so that's kinda cool, I guess. ;)
The High Roller
I found out about this by searching Google for fun things to do in Vegas and we also saw it during our Taxi ride when we were coming in from the airport.
This thing is so cool! It is the world's largest observation wheel reaching 550 feet high above the Las Vegas strip! The ride takes 30 minutes and the price for our 1:30pm ride was about $25 each. I wish we could have done it at night but we had shows to go to and figured during the day was our best bet. The crazy thing about this is that while it is moving pretty slowly, it didn't ever stop. Like ever! You had to get on while it was still in motion!
The Hubbo and I grabbed a cocktail and headed up to get on the High Roller and we had our fancy camera with us, totally making us look like tourists (#redhairdontcare) but we had a great time and got some pretty cool pics!
The Zombie Apocalypse Store
They had the coolest stuff! They had dehydrated food in bulk, bug out bags, weapons, first aid kits, anything you would need for a real disaster but they also had the fun stuff like t-shirts, zombie books, and Twinkies.
Rule #32 Enjoy the little things.
Bonus points for whoever can tell me what movie that is from!
We saw Cris Angel the first night and The Jabbawockeez the second night.
Both shows were a little over an hour long but I liked the Jabbawockeez the best!
The Cris Angel show was a little bit of a let down because he didn't do any of his big stunts. I understand that he's in a small venue but I was expecting more than the dove out of a hat trick. Also security was pretty tight there. Once you got into the theater you weren't allowed to take any pictures. I almost got us kicked out for taking the picture below.
Gambling + Winning
1. We can gamble in Oklahoma at the casinos ran by Native American tribes.
2. It's expensive.
We do like to play slots and I like to play roulette. I quickly lost my $20 on roulette and moved on to the slots where I won big money y'all!
Well not really big, but I turned $5 into $115 so it feels like a big deal. As soon as I hit the $115 I cashed out and walked away!
