Snapshots from Vegas

On Friday night, Ashley, Jamila and I danced till our feet hurt at Luxor's ultra lounge, CatHouse.

Getting our groove on at CatHouse. All it took was one drink!

Posing outside Luxor. aka, the crotch shot.

Enjoying a delicious "breakfast" (it was 1 p.m.) at The Cafe at the Monte Carlo. 
Is that Eggs Benedict you spy? Why, yes it is.

High rises and Aria at the new City Center. We browsed the Louis Vuitton inside (Ashley's a fan) and tried on $600 "stunna shades."

Slurping our yard cup frozen drinks. Mine was blue ice and strawberry lemonade.

More sweets. Jamila and I show off our frosting shots picked up at The Cupcakery. Hers: heavy cream with shimmering pink sprinkles. Mine: rich chocolate with white jimmies.

Saturday night dinner at Tacos & Tequila consisted of a heaping of chicken nachos with a chipotle cheese sauce and creme fraiche, and a white peach margarita to wash it all down. So good I'm still dreaming about it.

It was almost time to leave but we couldn't check out Sunday and say goodbye before spending some time at the pool.

Jamila wanted to get some sun. I just didn't want to get burned. You know I have on 50 spf!

Friends and fun. A perfect combination.

Do you normally say Jimmies instead of sprinkles? I've never heard anyone from California use it. It was always my east coast friends who called them jimmies. Sooo.. what's the story?

And besides the sprinkles/jimmies fixation, glad to hear you had a great weekend in Vegas! You definitely deserved the trip
