Friday Faves and Vegas Recap
Earlier than the usual Friday Faves publish, I wished to share some Vegas adventures! We met up with Betsy and Jeremy (our San Diego besties and journey buddies) final weekend and had the perfect time purchasing, playing, people-watching, and consuming all the ridiculous meals. It was our fifth journey to Vegas collectively (!) and we wished to strive a brand new resort. We usually love the Venetian and Bellagio, however determined to remain on the Wynn and have been NOT dissatisfied. It’s undoubtedly our new place. I want I might have snapped a pic of our room with the panoramic view. Every little thing was just lately renovated, the rooms and property have been attractive, and the service and meals have been glorious. Extremely suggest it when you’re planning a visit to Vegas anytime quickly.
Additionally wished to say right here that I booked the journey utilizing our AMEX platinum card, which has SO many advantages. We get free entry to a number of airport lounges (clutch when touring with the children) and likewise get resort credit score, late checkout, and room upgrades when obtainable. It’s by far my favourite bank card, particularly for motels and journey.
Friday afternoon, the Pilot and I walked across the Strip and into the Caesar’s Boards outlets, then stopped for appetizers and iced tea at True Meals. It was that tough level of the day while you don’t desire a full lunch to smash your dinner, however undoubtedly need somewhat snack to carry you over. True Meals was excellent! We had dinner reservations that evening on the Mirage, which is the place we met up with Betsy and Jeremy.
ALWAYS the seafood tower:
The Pilot and I shared a Wagyu steak, and likewise ordered Caesar salad, broccolini, and the perfect onion rings to share with the desk. Every little thing was scrumptious and perfectly-cooked. After that, we had tickets to see LOVE, which is the Beatles-themed Cirque du Soliel present.
Cirque tends to be somewhat trippy, however I all the time respect the immersive expertise and breathtaking performances. We’ve seen just a few Cirque du Soleil reveals and this was in all probability my favourite one! (I additionally love O on the Bellagio.) It additionally made me understand how a lot I like Beatles music? Each single track that got here on, I assumed, “Oh, I like this track.”
We referred to as it an earlier evening as a result of Betsy and I have been signed up for a Saturday am SOULCYCLE class. It was my first one and I completely want we had a studio right here in Tucson. I’ll undoubtedly hunt down extra courses once we journey! The teacher J was so enjoyable and had a ton of power. I additionally loved the truth that SOULCYCLE isn’t targeted on screens or metrics; you push your self relying on the way you’re feeling and what you want from the exercise. The 45-minute class flew by and I used to be drenched in sweat afterwards.
After class, we grabbed breakfast from Urth Caffé, which was additionally conveniently positioned within the resort. I had the gluten-free avocado toast with hen sausage and a decaf almond milk latte:
We went again to the room to vary after which walked to the Paris resort for lunch at one in all our fave spots, Mon Ami Gabi. They’ve modified the menu (it’s a lot smaller now), however I had an superior salmon and kale salad.
After that, we parted methods. The boys went off to gamble and Betsy and I set off for purchasing at Dry Bar. We shopped for hours on the Discussion board Outlets and Trend Present mall. Vegas has EVERYTHING.
After our purchasing occasion and our recent blowouts, we obtained prepared for dinner at RPM Italian, which opened just lately.
I’ve been eager to strive RPM (OG reader mates will bear in mind my lady crush on Giuliana Rancic) and it exceeded my expectations by a landslide. It’s the perfect Italian meals we’ve had outdoors of Italy. Every little thing was beautifully-plated and SO flavorful with out being greasy or heavy. We had stuffed squash blossoms, caviar and burrata, recent pasta, cocktails, and I had the fish for my entree. We additionally loved a fantastic dessert (I can’t bear in mind what it was referred to as, but it surely was like a baked alaska that they flambéed desk aspect, with a lot gusto.)
Dinner was AMAZING. Betsy and J went again to the resort to relax and the Pilot and I spent the late evening exploring the strip, choosing up Milk Bar for the kiddos, and having fun with a cocktail. I can’t imagine how a lot I walked on Saturday! My watched died, however earlier than it did, I had already hit 25k steps!
Sunday morning was extra low-key. We simply had breakfast on the resort the our mates earlier than catching our flight again to Tucson. It was the proper little recharge of a weekend, and I’m so completely happy we get to see this crew once more subsequent month! (plus all the children can hang around collectively!)

Trend + magnificence:
Acquired a brand new pair of Golden Goose sneakers in Vegas! I’ve been on the hunt for an ideal impartial, so right here’s the pair I selected.
