Las Vegas: Shining Lights and Glitzy Glam

Of course staying up way past our camping bed time of 9:00 last night kept us in bed until 10:30 this morning, four and a half hours past the time I have been getting up for the past two weeks. Mr. Rogue had made reservations at the Country Club for brunch. We sat on the patio outside although it was a bit hot. I had all intentions of ordering a mimosa and French toast until I saw the burger on the menu. It wasn’t even an option, I ended up ordering the burger and a diet coke and I think it was the best burger I have ever had in my entire life.


Sitting on the back deck, overlooking the golf course, Mr. Rogue and I discussed my next year’s project. I had considered learning to play golf, something that Mr. Rogue has also expressed an interest in learning but I may be pregnant next year SO that was ruled out. The other things I want to do are all just as impractical doing while pregnant. So I am still grappling with what to chose.

We spent a lazy day around town before heading to the Belagio’s Prime Steakhouse for dinner. Again Mr. Rogue did so well with the arrangements. We had a wonderful table by the singing fountain, a delicious bottle of wine, and the steak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my God the steak was AMAZING. See I am salivating right now all over the keyboard looking at this photo.


After they removed our meal the waiter brought out a molten lava cake, my baby knows me so well and had preordered EXACTLY what I would have chosen off the desert menu, what a great surprise!



After dinner we had tickets to see O a show put on by Circus de Soleil which I have been dying to see. It was SO MUCH MORE than what I was expecting and I really had the words to transport everyone into how magical this show really is. Truly keeps you in rapture and awe on the edge of our seat. The things that they can accomplish are just MIND BOGGLING.



The show was amazing but we were also treated to another wonderful surprise. Circus de Soleil was sponsoring a gallery show of an artist Richard MacDonald in the waiting lobby and I was in rapture looking at his work. His pieces ranged anywhere from $30,000-$150,000 each and I felt that every penny was justified in the amazing angles and lines he created. I so wish I could win the lottery so I could fill my home with his beautiful work!




After the show we took a walk outside and watched the singing fountain for a while and then we were off to many bars and different hotels drinking in the sites of the city. A true Disney world for adults!


Although I am not really a Vegas person I did enjoy finally getting to the city. Would I go back maybe once or twice but in all honesty I prefer quieter moments over the hustle and bustle of Vegas.
