    Last minute trip to Vegas - flying out after work tomorrow, back Sunday!

    Not sure if I'll to a Live TR (I often do, but we'll see).

    Got room at Paris and flight booked, will check with Cosmo host to see if I can get a room there...

    Woo-hoo! Can't believe I talked hubs into it!

    Awesome! That's how the majority of my Vegas trips are planned the day or two before! Only thing that's painful is the awfully high plane tickets, but that's quickly forgotten when landing in Vegas.

    I know the last day or two plans of going to Vegas is one of the best.

    Have a great trip. Lets see lots of Hand Pays.

    I usually have a packing list so I don't forget things. Now I will only have a few hours when I get home tonight to pack, AND I'm going to try to carry on :S

    Sure is - $850 and no direct flight because I can't risk driving to Omaha (work/time wise) so flying from Lincoln, which is more convenient anyway.

    That was one of the hardest things to convince husband of, the increased (double) flight cost.

    Haha, thanks!

    I have excellent persuasion and negotiation skills :) ;)

    Just have to figure out what they want. Sometimes it's monetary (i.e. a gun in hubs case) or committing to do something you've been putting off or just hate doing. This time I promised to eat healthier again as well.

    Spousal bribery seems to be the key.

    See you this weekend. Safe travels. I hope the casino stocks up on cherries.

    You should start playing the wild cherries machine!

    Have an awesome trip! Last minute trips are always so much fun. I'm looking forward to following along or reading your TR if live doesn't work out. Good luck!!

    Being spontaneous is lovely! Safe travels and perhaps we will meet @ Cosmo on Saturday. May you have many a hand pay this trip. Cheers :)

    Good luck! I'm very envious of a spontaneous trip. I think every one of my trips has come with months of planning.

    Thanks all! I'm going to be lazy and not respond to all the messages this time (mostly to not set myself up for failure when I don't when I get there). I do appreciate the well wishes and enjoy the comments though!

    I can't believe I pulled this off so far. Not telling most folks I work with, they already think I'm a degen! If I tell anyone tomorrow, I can just about guarantee they'll think it's an April fools joke!

    Now I just need to get my bag packed and make sure I leave work in time to make the plane and connection!

    You'll be proud of this - I almost always double book Cosmo and CET. We stay at cosmo, but I am milking my CET offers for all their worth.

    So...staying at cosmo - terrace suite with a freeplay offer (I assume 600 ish and 200 resort credit, that's the usual). And I double booked at Paris because only place close with a room (pho was available before the conference call ). Got another 300 FP there, but have to stay through Sunday night to get it. So I'll be checking out from my phone at work on monday, lmao!
