The Vegas Wedding Vacation Show: Part III

Wow… who knew it would take so many posts to share with you the details of my Vegas trip!  We packed SO much into the three days we were in Vegas.  I guess it just takes time.  I promise, I’ll eventually share details of this lovely lady’s wedding…

But first, let’s talk about the fun we had on Saturday!

Saturday afternoon, Jaede and I needed breakfast and we certainly needed more than toast.  We found our way to the free Brunch that the hotel offered when we checked in.

Love the name, love the food, and loved the french toast.  Seriously, if you’re in Vegas and need some french toast, come here.  Jaede and I may have gone back twice.  AND… I also vowed to figure out how to make this french toast at home.  Insanely delicious (and so not Jenny Craig… oops!)

After our brunch, it was time to shop it out.  The bride wanted to do some shopping at the Forum Shops at Caesar’s… and who were we to turn her down!  Jaede and I got lost a little bit in Sephora.  I purchased a fabulous new blush and my first red lipstick in YEARS.

I ended up buying Runway Red by Too Faced.

My new favorite blush… Orgasm by Nars. This is one that’s always featured in mags as a VERY universally flattering blush. Love. It!

After shopping it out, it was time to get back to the room to get ready for the evening dinner.  Angela planned a family/wedding party dinner at our very favorite restaurant in Vegas – Firefly.

Trying out the new makeup…

We first heard about Firefly via an episode of Racheal Ray’s $40 a Day show on Food Network, and always make it a necessary stop during trips to the desert.

They serve the most delicious Spanish tapas… and Saturday night was no exception.  The food was amazing as was the company… I only wish I had a picture of the gazpacho I enjoyed.  It was HEAVENLY.

The Kel-Ang Show: Firefly Edition

Ang very wisely decided that we should keep Saturday night as an early night.  Dinner with the family and then some beauty sleep so we were all gorgeous the next day for the wedding.

The next morning, Jaede and I decided to kick it up a little bit and try out the spa at the Cosmopolitan.

We both had scheduled 80 minute massages and couldn’t WAIT to get on the table.  I’ll tell you… I wore the most unsupportive shoes the entire time in Vegas, so I had the therapist spend some extra time on my feet.  Thank goodness we made time for these!

Does she look excited or what?

I was whining that I missed yoga, so I struck a pose or two on the way to the locker room!

After all that massaging and another slice of French Toast, it was time to get ready… Stay tuned!
