Day 3 - Part I
Day 3 - Part II
Day 4 - Part I
Lunch was a doozy at RM Seafood, but we walked off our disappointment quickly and enjoyed our scenery...
|Las Vegas = Adult Disneyland|
|Happy 4th of July!|
|The closest I've ever been to NYC|
|Still haven't stayed here yet... Thinking about a Villa|
|I feel like a designer whore...|
We passed by this store and both glass walls were lined with these vintage sewing machines, it was super random and very cool! We had to snap a photo to send to the bf's Mom--she's the sewing machine Queen and super creative--always working on projects and creating beautiful quilts and other special pieces...
|Kinda hard to see..|
I was caught off guard by how adamant my man was on going in to my girl, Tiff's shop. The Designers and Collection pieces were displayed in the front where there were way too many people hoarding the glass counters...but that's not what he was interested in.
Nope, he wanted to go in the back where the engagement and wedding rings and bands were. WHAT? Yup. His idea.
He was excited to hopefully show me exactly what he liked for me, and then wanted to show me what he would wear. whosthisguy?!
We get to the back were there's maybe two other people and have the place to ourselves to window shop. He proceeded to point to the engagement rings he wasn't crazy about.. he tried to explain he wanted a ring that had diamonds all around, not just a single diamond or a few diamonds and a solid band...
You mean like this babe? ;)

We cooled off with some ice cream and treats from the Sugar Factory...
Then continued our journey to Fashion Show! We shopped until the sunset, and eagerly crossed the street to the Venetian.. we had an appetite and were saving the best for last!
We strolled through the Grand Canal Shops dodging people, still window shopping, and watching those on the gondolas and listening to the Italian Opera guys belt out those notes... It was sooo Venetian.. I loved it! (fun fact: the Venetian was the very first hotel I stayed at--when I was 13 the family stopped in Vegas mid-road trip and that's where we stayed--it'll always be special to me even if prefer the Bellagio;)
|Entrance to TAO|
|Not what you were expecting?!|
|Satay of Chilean Seabass|
We also ordered Crispy Lobster and Shrimp Dumplings with Ginger Jiang Kong Sauce, but I completely forgot to take a picture of it!! It was plated very nicely and came with five fried dumplings--and although I was expecting rice paper--I had never tried fried dumplings before, and they were amazing!
For our entree, we split the Wok-Seared New York Sirloin with Shiitake Mushrooms and Szechwan Potatoes...
It got late quickly, and I wanted to do was snuggle so we glanced at the dessert menu...
And I almost ordered the Mochi Tasting, but decided these would do..
And you would not believe my what my fortune cookie said!!
PS: On the walk back to our hotel, we ran across this guy.. I'm not sure why, but I found him hilarious and completely off the wall--I want to say out of place, but that's what makes Vegas, Vegas--everyone's out of place, which makes even the weirdos or people you would otherwise say don't belong, belong...
|You must be super hot in that wool kilt...|
Well... The lady in this picture was shit-faced and found this guy also appealing... except she invaded his personal space by getting all up in his business. So close in fact, she wanted to see how authentic this Scottish Lad was by lifting up his kilt...
|Or maybe there's a draft...|
I looked at my boyfriend, busted out laughing and nearly shouted, "THAT JUST HAPPENED!!!"
How's THAT for TMI!?
