what happens in Vegas, ends up on my blog.

Vegas was too much fun. I thought 3 nights would be enough, but I certainly didn't want to leave.

We really didn't take very many pictures while we were there. We arrived Monday and headed straight for our favorite place on the strip, Diablo's. Next time you go to Vegas, you must check it out. Fantastic mexican food, amazing margaritas/sangria and a hoppin' happy hour. They'll even let you stand on the bar to spin their Wheel 'o Drinks every 30 minutes for the happy hour special!

please excuse my post-flying look.

Next stop, Coyote Ugly for some giant boots of margarita - it's how all Okie's drink their 'ritas.

We spent all day Tuesday walking the strip, checking our Fremont Street and grabbing drinks in all the casinos along the way. Heath and I got all fancied up and went out for dinner and drinks that evening. We met up with my parents at a piano bar later. No pics were taken that night. We left the camera in room in an attempt to prevent me from losing/breaking yet another camera.

Speaking of, here is our room at MGM Grand. I was pretty impressed. Especially for a whopping $67 a night! Can't beat that deal with a stick!

We decided to take it easy Wednesday. Which is exactly what I did. By the pool.

Ah. Perfection.

Wednesday evening we went and saw Mystere. It was pretty incredible. On our last Vegas adventure, we saw Zumanity - the 'sensual side of cirque du soleil'. I don't recommend it, unless you're into watching soft porn with a roomful of strangers. Mystere, on the other hand, was quite suitable to watch with the parentals.

After the show, we hit up Diablo's for a second time. Fajitas and beer - what a way to end the night.

We flew out Thursday afternoon. We had just enough time to drop some cash on the Roulette tables before heading out.

I'm ready to go back tomorrow. Any takers?

Wow this sounds like my kinda trip, eating, drinking and a really cheap room. I cant belive you got such a nice room at that price. I love the rita in the boot, so funny. Im glad you had a great time.

Your trip sounds like so much fun - I'm jealous! And next time we're in Vegas (which is hopefully soon), we will definitely have to give Diablo's a try. And where did you get that awesome deal for MGM??
