Sadly, the fountains didn't play because it was extremely windy, and my desire to go up into the Eiffel Tower was struck down because of the infernal wind. So I ended up going back to our hotel (The Flamingo) and played slots for several hours. Was up about $50 but, in true Vegas fashion, gave it right back to the house.
The next day I actually woke up and worked out in the fitness center (which was a good thing--sweated out all the alcohol) and got ready for the tradeshow. It was a good day--we got a lot of contacts and it was pretty productive. But I won't bore you with business....
After the reception where our company received an award and I had this lovely drink,
we went to dinner at Margaritaville, and surprise surprise! More alcohol. As I was taking a picture with my coworker, a man did rabbit ears behind my head. I turned around and said, "You owe me a drink!" He bought me a shot of tequila and I found out he was at the same tradeshow as we. As you can see from the pic, I don't do tequila very well. After the shot and another couple of drinks, though, I was tipsy tipsy tipsy! (and with a fresh coat of lipstick to boot!)
At this point, I was done. Finito. Tired as hell and quite tipsy to boot. But, my coworkers peer pressured me (I felt like I was in 6th grade) to go out with them to the Shadow Lounge at Caesar's Palace, promising to have me back to my room by midnight. I stumbled in about 2 am.
My last day in Vegas, I dragged ass the whole time at the tradeshow, and left at 3 to catch my 6 pm flight. Got on the plane, got into Dallas at 11, and didn't get to sleep until after 1 am, with the 45-minute drive home and all. Much thanks to my dear dear Husband, who kindly woke up at 4 am with me and took me to the airport the day I left, and picked me up at 11 pm the day I got back.
It was a fun time, but I'm glad to be back to normal. That place is a little too crazy for me. Then again, it's not stopping me from planning another trip there soon--I want to share it with DH!
Isn't he a cutie? He was deceptively heavy, though...
I know this post is short, but I'm still a bit tired from the trip--didn't get to Dallas on Thursday night until 11 pm, then the 45 minute drive home and the settling in didn't put me in my bed until nearly 2 am. Today DH is at a friend's birthday party, but I am here, blogging to you fine people, attempting to recover from my Vegas trip.....
More later, I promise!!!!
