LUCKY NO. 7: VEGAS RECAP

I spent last weekend in Las Vegas with my husband, Tony. This was our 4th trip to Sin City together – but it was my 7th trip. Needless to say, I love Vegas. I wish I could also tell you I love to gamble and spend my evenings fist pumping (is that still a thing?) with glow sticks. But, I do none of those things. Tony gambles a little while I watch and pull my hair out, but that is the extent of our casino mischief.

What I do love about Las Vegas is the escape from reality – the city dwells in the middle of the desert for Pete’s sake. I love the daytime mountain views juxtaposed with the gaudy marquees. I love the nighttime theatrics and the champagne brunches. I also have a weird obsession with pools –  a Vegas specialty.

In honor of my 7th trip to Vegas I thought I would share a mini review showcasing the highlights through the years. Enjoy:
