Las Vegas Trip 2015

I've been meaning to post about my recent trip to Vegas, but work has been so busy. This is a really busy time of year with all of the different programs we have going on like competency days, preceptor workshops, new grad orientation, etc., but I don't want to bore you with that nursey stuff!

3 weeks ago myself, husband, and two brothers went to Las Vegas for a little getaway. My husband and I have been to Vegas before back in 2009 (before he was my husband hehe). My brothers have never been so I really excited for them.

We were there from Tuesday-Saturday. A lot of time spent was walking up and down the strip looking at and walking through all of the hotels, man did my legs/feet hurt! Some other highlights of the trip were that I learned to play craps, we saw Gordon Ramsay walking through our hotel, saw Britney Spears in concert at Planet Hollywood, watched the Bellagio fountains like a million times (my favorite thing to do in Vegas), took pictures at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, ate some amazing food, and of course had some sibling bonding. If you follow me in Instagram/Twitter you probably have seen most of these pictures. My apologies if I overwhelmed your feed with Vegas pics, I couldn't help myself.

This sign is pretty south of the strip,  I don't think we realized that when we decided to walk here hah!
Chihuly glass at The Bellagio, so pretty. 
We stayed at the Paris hotel
Went up in the Eiffel Tower, this is 460 ft above the strip overlooking the Bellagio Fountains.
Breakfast at Mon Amie Gabi in our hotel. I've always wanted to eat here since it is one of the only restaurants right on the strip. It was great for people watching and the food was really good.
We had breakfast at Le Village Buffet in our hotel. The food itself was ok, but the desserts were where it was at! This was hands down the best creme brûlée I've ever had. In. My. Life.
In-n-Out Burger! We ended up having to take a bus, a taxi, and a bit of walking to get there but it was so worth it!
I wish I had taken more pictures of the food at Bacchanal Buffet as Caesar's Palace. OMG. We all agreed that this was some of the best food we've ever eaten. If you're going to Vegas please do yourself a favor and eat here.
It's always exciting to find Dachshund things in unexpected places!


  1. I'm jealous! It looks like you had an amazing time! I would love to go back to Vegas. All of the food looks sooo good! I want that In-N-Out Burger nowww.

  2. Emily, I think I love In-N-Out so much is because I can't get it here on the East Coast!
