I don’t know if spending 30 hours in Vegas is the best or worst idea we’ve ever had.
On the one hand, we had all day yesterday to recover, and considering that I didn’t leave the house once, slept on and off all day, watched two movies and many hours of television, and I still feel like I want to die today, I can’t really imagine what I would feel like if I didn’t have all of yesterday to try to recover.
On the other hand, because I only had 30 hours, I went as hard as I could and packed as much as I could in those mere 30 hours. It has been years, YEARS, since I went to bed at 5 am, and now I know why. Perhaps if I spread my fun out over two nights, I wouldn’t have been so miserable yesterday? I’m not sure.
Being one of the first to leave also led to some major fear of missing out, which wasn’t fun. What if Sunday night was more fun than Saturday night? What if I miss out on the MOST FUN NIGHT EVER? What if something super awesome happens right after I leave? Even though I was assured yesterday that I didn’t really miss out on anything, I had some major FOMO going on Sunday night.
Yeah. So anyway. I’m back. And I had a lot of fun. However, a few conclusions:
1) Unless it is a gay club rocking some awesome 80s and 90s music, clubs and I don’t click. We went to Tao and while it appeared people were having a lot of fun there, I couldn’t understand why. No matter what level of intoxication you are at, clubs are just not for me.
2) Renting a cabana is absolutely necessary to a pool day and worth every penny. Also? The “old people pool” is your friend. You don’t have time for that Tao Beach nonsense.
3) Despite telling yourself numerous times that you will “win so much money your trip will be free,” you will, undoubtedly, leave with far less money than you came with. You will spend at least twice as much as you plan to spend. It is just a fact.
4) Spirit airlines is the worst airline in the United States.
And now, some photos:

What are your thoughts about the overnight Vegas trip? Yay or nay?
