    Hello Fanatics! Less than 24 hours...

    Of course I have insomnia the night before I leave, so here it is 3:50am my last night at home before our trip... and I've been trying to fall asleep for 4 hours, no luck so here I am.

    We fly out tonight around 9pm, get into Vegas at 10:50pm. We decided to rent a car this time instead of using car services everywhere. So there will be a dash to get to the car rental place with the time our flight arrives (hopefully no delays) If nothing else, we will have to go get it the next day. We plan to go visit some outer casinos we've never been to so figured a car would be easier.

    As usual, We don't have any set in stone plans we like to play it by ear and see where the days take us when we come to Vegas. This is the first summer trip for me, I normally come in winter or early spring time so I bought a new swim suit to enjoy some pool time during the day. I plan on hitting up a spa for some relaxation as well.

    Besides that, We will see where the trip goes and I'll try to post lots of pictures for you all to enjoy. Maybe a little sleep now.

    Vegas, I know your calling... soon baby, soon.

    4am, rolling into bed for the night. Roamed Fremont street, ready for some sleep now. Hubby spent his money for the night with no luck, I came out even so overall not too bad.

    Staying at the golden gate, got a suite comped for 4 nights.

    More tomorrow:)

    We hit a buffet for dinner, now back downtown was feeling a little tired so drinking red bull and vodka for a pick me up, forgot to snap a shot of this wonder 4 win, but cashed this out at 500 even when I was done. Still wondering around Fremont street the hubs is up and down on cards.

    We will see if theres anymore luck tonight, but with the little wins here and there I'm up for my money for today so cant complain. Also got a sour patch kids slurpee eairlier that was super sweet but delicious! :)

    The strip tomorrow and group pull!

    Got a little behind on updating we made it back home this morning, caught up on sleep and just finished dinner.

    We met up with some other fanatics Wednesday for the group pull at the Bellagio, nice meeting you all! Before that we hit up the Cosmo. After group pull we headed back down for dinner and more gambling. Around 2am I was almost out of money for the day and went to spend my last 100 while the hubs threw his last 100 on blackjack, made 100 bucks last 2 hours while I wondered around on diffrent slots around 4am I was good and drunk and at around 200 when I wondered to the blackjack table to find hubby... he was up to 900 bucks on black Jack so I watched him for a bit longer than we went to bed with around 1200 at 5am.

    Thursday we got up around 11am and decided to go do some adventuring on our last day we drove down to green valley resort and spent that afternoon there, I had the best pizza ever at pizza rock for lunch and won 600 bucks on another eagle slot, hit a few other 1-2 hundred bonuses there through out the day and left up 1600 bucks.

    We than drove to the M resort for dinner a d more gambling, we decided to try the buffet there and OMG was it Ah-mazing! Sooo many choices, fresh food and pretty much everything I tried was good and they also offered free unlimited beer and wine with the buffet so very good value at only 25.99 a person, one of the best buffets I've had in Vegas in a while.

    Didnt win any money at the M, but overall the trip was a success for 4 days of gambling we only were down 400 bucks between the 2 of us from our gambling money, got to check out alot of new places and had a really fun trip. I would definitley rent a car again for the freedom it offers you to go wherever you want and no waiting on car services.

    Heres some random pics I dont think I uploaded.
