super late vegas recap

Hey y'all! 
Remember that time I mentioned I was going to Vegas? 
Exactly a month ago today? 
Well, I am finally getting around to recapping the trip. 
I am just going to post all of the pictures at the end of the post; 
in case anyone just wants to skip those. 

This was a work trip 
and, of course, the days were filled with conference sessions, 
which were mostly interesting. 
But the evenings were free and I loved exploring Vegas. 

Now for me, 
any trip is going to revolve around food! 
I am a foodie and I love experiencing new restaurants. 
This is my fair warning, 
there will be many food pictures in this post. ;)

Getting to Vegas was a headache. 
Flight delay due to a brake line failure on the initial airplane out of Atlanta. 
I finally made it to Vegas 3 hours late. 
Granted I am thankful that they found the malfunction before takeoff. 
I am sure that would have been an interesting landing! 

I stayed at the Mandalay Bay Resort. 
I really enjoyed the Mandalay! 
My favorite part was probably the Shark Reef Aquarium. 
They also had a ton of great restaurants on site. 

One night I just wandered the Strip, sightseeing. 
I stopped in M&M world. 
I am talking 4 floors of M&M stuff! 
Another night, I went to the Bellagio Fountains. 
I absolutely loved the Fountains, 
a definite must see for anyone visiting Vegas. 

I loved flying over the Grand Canyon on the flight back home. 
Luckily, the trip back from Vegas was pretty much hassle free. 
I actually landed 20 minutes early in Savannah! 

I really do LOVE flying!

Spectacular Bellagio Fountains! 

An Irish Pub ... this was my favorite restaurant! 

Guinness Beef Stew & French Press Coffee at the Irish Pub

  Caramel Latte Milkshake...seriously, the best milkshake EVER!

These nachos were enormous! 

Meatball Sub & Sweet Potato Fries

Chicken Burrito ... the tortilla was fresh made!

  1. Yay you saw the water show! It's amazing right? You actually saw A LOT! I've been there more times than I can count and haven't experienced half of these places lol :)

    Thanks for linking up for MMG!

  2. Beautiful pics! We didn't make it to Vegas for my birthday - we went to Costco instead! Ha ha … I'll get there someday! I HATE flying. I would rather drive straight for two days to get somewhere than spend eight hours flying!
