Viva Las Vegas!

We spent the last few days in Las Vegas with my best friend from high school & her husband celebrating our 30th birthdays. It was my first time in Vegas & definitely lived up to the hype!!

When we got in, we were so tired from the time change & early flight, that the first thing we did, was nap! 😉 I’m not even embarrassed to admit it. That evening we went to dinner at Olives, recommended by another friend, and had an amazing view of the Bellagio fountains. The experience was so fun & entertaining, and the food was amazing too!  Friday, we spent the morning checking out the area, grabbed an early lunch & then went to the pool. The pools in Vegas are amazing, and we probably would have spent our entire trip there if it hadn’t rained so much. But we did get one day of sunshine & poolside margaritas!! My swimsuit is this ruffle bandeau in stripes from Victoria’s Secret, I loved it so much!! In the late afternoon we went to the Stratosphere to get the best view of the strip & go on the rides, which I definitely wouldn’t have probably agreed to before those margaritas! 😉 Then went out on the strip for dinner & drinks, to round out what felt like a 36 hour long day.

What happens in Vegas… is hangovers.

Saturday we had brunch at the Hash House, and had their famous chicken & waffles, then headed to Fremont Street. I loved this area, it has a totally different vibe than the strip, and has so many charming restaurants & pubs. It rained most of the morning but then cleared up & was the perfect overcast afternoon for walking around. We went to Container Park, which is another super fun spot, did some beer tasting & had lunch in one of the little rooftop cafes. Saturday night, we went to see Eric Church at the Hard Rock, which was INCREDIBLE. I have wanted to see him in concert forever, he is our favorite & we were sooo excited to find out that he was going to be there while we were in town. He puts on such an amazing show, we definitely didn’t want it to end!!

We also had the pleasure of visiting the Rent the Runway store at the Cosmopolitan, and spent the morning trying on dresses which was so much fun!! I will share more about our trip there & some of my favorite dresses, but ultimately I chose this Cynthia Rowley romper, I loved the long sleeves & the way it fit. If you’re thinking of renting this for an event or a night out, you can get $20 off your first rental, which brings this to only $30! And bonus, it has pockets!! I loved it & would totally rent this again!
Vegas was an amazing time, definitely enough fun to make me realize I can’t hang like I used to! 😉 At the end of the day, we couldn’t be happier to be back home though. A kid free vacation was much needed, but made us feel extra grateful to have our babies to come home to. 
Now just working on my recovery. Wishing you all a happy week ahead! XO

  1. Looks like your friend has as great of a style as you do. Where did she get that adorable chambray dress or maybe it is a romper????

  2. Oh my gosh, this is too fun. As a Vegas local, I always get a kick out of seeing where people go when they come here to vacation. Freemont is a total blast and Container Park is definitely a place locals enjoy, too. There's more culture there than The Strip. 😉 Symphony Park is also fabulous and has a great children's museum if Vegas + kids ever happened in the future for ya'll. Lake Las Vegas is also a great place to check out and stay at if you want a vaca free from The Strip's nightlife. <3

  3. What a fun weekend, happy 30th birthday!! I just want to say, you look amazing…would you ever consider doing a post on what you do post-baby to get back in shape? My 1st baby is nearing one year old and let's just say I could use some tips. Love your blog as always, I've been a reader for a couple years 🙂

  4. I know you've told us where you got you shoes before… But I can't remember!! Ps I've been searching the web for homes in Georgia! We live in Colorado but I can't get over how beautiful Georgia looks!!

  5. VEGAS!!!! My very favorite place in the world! Hub and I used to go every single year before we had babies and I miss it so much! I think we're going to try to go next year for our anniversary! I'm sure a lot has changed in five years since we've been there.

  6. I live in Vegas! Total bummer it rained most of the weekend though, we're having some weird weather lately! And extra happy to hear you enjoyed Downtown (Fremont), us locals definitely love it there way more than the strip! And I have yet been to check out Container Park, Probably should.. haha Glad you enjoyed your trip! Love hearing other peoples experiences here!

  9. I've been all over the West coast, but never to Vegas. I'm now determined to get there and see Britney before she's done. Go ahead, make fun… unless you want in? 😉

  10. Are those the old navy jeans ?? Also, tan shirt?

    I've been to Vegas about 1/2 dozen times. At 37, I can't hang ….. I'm a "I'd rather be in the hotel & in bed by 10".

  11. Love love love Eric Church! He is our favorite too:) We saw him last February and May and I wanted to see him in Vegas so badly but my husband had a work conflict 🙁 I'm so jealous!
