Shiny Disco Balls...

Hello lovelies, Mama's back with Vegas recap 2011. It was a quick and dirty trip but I survived (though my dogs are still barking from all the walking I did.) Note to self, just because the Kardashians can manage to traipse through the airport in high heel boots doesn't mean Mama can or should.  Sore feet is NO way to start a shopping walking tour of Vegas. 

We stayed at Aria Hotel in the new City Centre. Yes its a beautiful hotel, but also extremely modern and we couldn't help but feel that it was missing the charm and kitschy over-the-topness that Vegas is known for. I think that Wynn (where we stayed last January) has the perfect mix of Vegas flair and contemporary sophistication (in my extremely valuable opinion.)  


At the mega huge CES Consumer Electronic Show (the reason we were in Vegas), Husbands company HSTi, with their Wireless Media Stick, was voted the Best Android Accessory of the CES 2011 by Android Central. Yeah, I'm a bit stoked!



I'm not gonna lie, we ate a lot and one of our fave restaurants was Julian Serrano Tapas. We had fabulous Ceviche, Tapas and of course a super delicious Paella. Muy sabroso!

Later we went to Haze, the main club in Aria.
 Feathers, rhinestones and fabulous
 Drugs, Rock and Roll, Bad Ass, Vegas Hoes, Late Nights, booty Calls, Shiny Disco Balls...
Only one pic of Mama. Husband never remembers to take pics...

 The music was pretty amazing and even better when Maroon 5 hit the stage at around 1:30am.  While we were standing in the casino I saw Adam Levine ( pure hotness) and band walk by, I had to seriously do a double take but then there they were later that night playing a few songs in Haze. Prerequisite Vegas celebrity sighting- check! 



I wished I'd taken more pics while I was there but Husband had our camera in his briefcase and my crackberry takes terrible pics.  So this is all I can share for now. The best is yet to come though, next post is dedicated to the shop shop shoppping recap. Stay tuned kids...

Huge congratulations are in order! Whoo hoo for your hubby!

I love Vegas, and I'm not a very big partier. There is so much to see and do! I love the mall inside Caesar's. I also really like going to shows. The wax museum is always fun, too! (Do you hear that? The "Nerd Alert Alarms" just went off. Ha ha!)

Glad you had fun!

xoxo

Kate Gene said...

P. S. My husband always forgets to take pictures, too. LOL! I wish we could have a professional photographer follow us around. I often don't make it into pictures because I'm the one holding the camera!

DeefromCG said...

Hiiiiii, so glad youre back! Your post makes me want to go to Vegas (like going to Italy first and then taking a plane to Vegas in Rome sigh).
Don´t worry, my husband never takes pictures of me, except in the red dress on NYE, means I need more Lanvin dresses.
Paella looks really good and so does ...hubby ;) Really handsome. But I love the picture of you the most, you look like a celebrity !
Van´t wait for the shopping post...I bet I want everything you got.

DeefromCG said...

Looks like you had a fantastic time. And I like the crackberry pictures - they're more authentic!

Sara Louise said...

I can't wait for your shopping post! And so jealous you were there when Adam Levine sauntered on by...

Kelsey said...

The Aria is beautiful, but I agree that it is missing the Vegas charm. I prefer to stay at the Bellagio. I am so jealous that you saw Adam Levine, I think I would have had a heart attack.

Sarah said...

Wow amazing, congrats to husband's company! Looks like a fabulous time!
