Viva Las Vegas | A Girl’s Birthday Trip

Even though what happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, we had too much fun to keep it to ourselves!

Karyn (my sister if you’re an internet stranger reading this!) and I both have August birthdays, and so this year to celebrate, my mom suggested a trip to Vegas, and we couldn’t say no! I think it was her excuse to go, since it probably wouldn’t be an ideal trip for my Dad, but nevertheless, it was so much fun.

We explored the strip, ate a ton of super delicious food (always a priority), saw 2 shows, and lost $10 playing Black Jack (the digital version, since we were all too nervous to play at a real table! #newbies).

During our time there, we stayed at the Palazzo which was everything and more. I mean, the bathroom had a double french-door to enter. Yes, the bathroom. The beds has those oversized fluffy pillows (my favorite part of any hotel), and we got upgraded to a room that overlooked the strip on the 32nd floor. No big deal!

I hope you enjoy this little video as much as I enjoyed our time there! I’d do it all again tomorrow if we could!

Thanks for the birthday trip of a lifetime Mom (and Karyn!). Let’s go back next year!

PS – I’ve had a lot of questions about the backpack I’ve been wearing a lot lately, and it’s a Kelly Moore Bag! You can shop for it here (for the record, all her bags are amazing!)
