Give me all your tacky, all your drinks and all your Avengers Las Vegas

I'm back from Vegas. Bosco is back home from my mother's and now I'm just trying to overcome my candy crush addiction thanks to the long plan ride.

We stayed at the Luxor. The rooms are a little dated. I mean there was a phone with a cord right next to the toilet but they were clean. How much time do you really spend in the room anyway? If you're me not much.

I'm a sucker for Egyptian themed anything. Well I'm a sucker for anything themed which is why I love Vegas.




The first night we got in we saw Penn and Teller. It was a really good show. I'm a big fan of Penn after seeing him on Celebrity Apprentice. Penn and Teller are really great magicians but they also showed you how some tricks are done and talked about how you should never spend money on a medium and talked a bit about how they trick people. I should change that to Penn talked because Teller never speaks. If you go to Vegas check out their show.


We spent quite a bit of time at the Mandalay Bay and Excalibur since they are both connected to the Luxor. We went to Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay. It's a small aquarium but their shark tank is HUGE. You walk through a tunnel to get to the rest of the shark tank (see pic above taken in the tunnel). I really loved the tunnel an watching the sharks and fish swim all around you.


I love jelly fish when you can admire them safely behind glass.




Decorating ideas for the new apartment? I think Derek might object....



Japanese garden in the Bellagio. I heard this nice flute music and then realized there was actually a guy there playing the flute.

It was a bit cooler than I expected so we spent more time wandering around hotels rather than at the pool. Ah well, can't control the weather. It was still nice out just not hot enough to lounge by the pool.



We met some nice Canadians over two dollar bud light drafts once night and at Margaritaville we sat next to a nice couple from Texas. If you're in Vegas go to Margaritaville at the Flamingo unless you don't like watching bartenders do fun tricks with bottles and giving you free shots then avoid it at all costs.

And most of the pictures of Derek and I look like this. I refuse to use a selfie stick!


I almost forgot two of my favorite Vegas pics.



Spiderman is proposing to me and all the other Avengers are not pleased. But where is Iron Man and Black Widow?

Sorry for all the photos but it's Vegas and vacation and I can't help myself.

    1. I really enjoyed the flowers and they change the display so every time I go I always check out what they have going on.

  4. Great photos and commentary. Now I want to go to Vegas! I've only driven passed it once on the way to CA. My husband's been there a couple times for work and said it was depressing. He lied! I should go and run off with a Superhero, serves my husband right!

    1. I love it! Maybe he's worried Thor will whisk you away.

  5. Vegas is amazing isn't it? I've been several times, and find something new to enjoy each time. I can't believe the weather wasn't hot enough to sunbathe though!

    Love the photos. Now I want to go again! Vegas is only a 4 hour drive from our house in AZ so maybe we'll go again soon. I really want to visit the Wynn and see Britney doing her thing. Was Mariah Carey there, or has she finished her stint in Vegas already?

    1. This was my third time and won't be my last. Mariah is still performing there I believe. I don't think Derek would want to go to that show though ha ha.
