Las Vegas/Grand Canyon 2009

This is my third time to Las Vegas and I never get tired – never. In fact, I miss it already while waiting at the airport for our flight back. haha. Anyways there was much planned for the four days we were there – Grand Canyon, outlets, dinner and a show, chinatown and of course In ‘N Out burger. =P

We stayed one night at Wynn and 2 nights at Encore, bc we both have never stayed there and wanted to try both. The two hotels are connected thru a hallway so it wasn’t a hassle at all to move our stuff. If you go to slickdeals and type in what you want to look for, you can find good deals on there that ppl post right away. This was where hubby was able to find both rooms for $109 per night – not too shabby at a 5 star hotel. I definitely prefer Encore over Wynn any day but who wouldn’t. The suites were over 700 sq ft and everything was so modern and new. haha. love it!

We went to two outlets – one 20 miles away but took us forever bc we hit traffic from ppl driving back to LA. I should’ve checked the outlet stores first bc I prob wouldn’t have gone there again. The best thing out of it was I was able to find the 219 brush and Love Nectar lipglass there so I guess all is good. The second store, I picked up 2 eyeshadows (Tete a Tint & Signed Sealed) and 2 lippies (1N & 3N). Sorry Nu! I didn’t see any 2N’s there. =/


chillin under the shade at the Wynn pool. haha.

Got dolled up for dinner and caught Mystere later

I did my hair and makeup tutorial in the Encore bathroom but when I transferred it over to my laptop, it didn’t transfer and I deleted the files on the card to save some space. Sob =/ Ah well, guess I have to recreate it again, but at least I was able to save the intro. haha.

We dined at Daniel Boulard’s restaurant at Wynn and I completely forgot that I ate at the same restaurant in NYC when my friend took me there. =P
Next day, we headed over to the Grand Canyon north side. Hubby was having so much fun that I practically dragged him to go with me to the canyon. haha. It estimated a 6 hr drive but we got there a little over 4 hrs – not too bad. He was glad he went though bc it was definitely an experience we didn’t want to miss. The drive to and from was just as gorgeous!
I asked hubby to pose. haha. isn’t he fierce?!

Just gorgeous!
I am so ready to go back! haha. We did find “chinatown” and got some chinese eats and boba drinks. Then finished off the day with carryout from there as well as In ‘n Out. haha. Definitely a great trip altogether. =)
