Vegas without a hangover? Earlier this month when I was visiting my family in Nor-Cal, we took a short mid-week trip to Vegas. A bit of business and fun so I invited my mom and sister who were both on Spring break from teaching at a local college and elementary school. I thought a pre-Mother’s Day celebration in Sin City would be fun since we won’t be able to spend May 1oth together (that’s next Sunday already if you still need time to shop for mom).
Virgin America was having a super sale and temps were in the 80’s the entire time so we had some R&R in the sun, minus the pool parties, during our 48 hours in Vegas. Here’s my little Sin City diary along with my mom and sister…
<I love finding mid-week sales on Virgin America which is in Terminal 2 in SFO, which also happens to have a Pinkberry>
<I learned traveling while pregnant whether it’s a 1 or 12 hour flight comes with its challenges, and it’s so important to be comfortable so Adidas sneakers were the footwear of choice>
<JetSet – Getting ready to board with my mom and sister. I threw on my Old Navy ‘Jetset’ tee and I have post coming next month with my top tips for flying while pregnant from handling nausea to the not-so-stylish compression socks that are a MUST>
<Something New! / Something Old! – We stayed on the strip, but took the monorail and a taxi to the old part of Vegas on Fremont Street where I’d never been before. It felt like walking back in time and there were plenty of $5 BlackJack tables>
<We checked out ‘Container Park‘ just a few blocks from Fremont St. which is a start-up community founded by Zappos founder, Tony Hsieh, as he is trying to rebuild that part of the city>
<Jubilee & Amaretto Sours (sparkling H20 for me) – We all ended up seeing the show Jubilee at Bally’s which was a very classic entertaining Vegas show! PS – I don’t recommend organizing shows ahead of time just in case you’re tired or change plans. We got our show tickets at Tix4Tonight that has 10 official booths all over Vegas and you can get 1/2 price tix to tons of shows last minute>
<Heels & Spring Prints! – It was fun to have a night out, although, we went to bed right after the show. I wore a wrap chain print dress by Calvin Klein>
<Get Ready to Walk! Vegas involves a LOT of walking, but we hung out near the newly renovated LINQ hotel and shopping center with a Kitson and Sephora nearby. It’s right in the middle of everything and the entrance to ride on the new High Roller ferris wheel>
<Before heading to the airport we had to stop by the Bellagio – a definite tourist spot for photos in Vegas as they always have something new>
When was your last girl’s getaway either with friends or family?
