Alright my dolls!
We are back for part two of my Vegas vacation. If you haven’t read part one yet, make sure to go and see what I did my first two days. Let’s not waste time and jump right into it!
Day 3: Minimum Sight-Seeing & Walking The Strip
Makeup selfieee!! ❤
We headed to Planet Hollywood for free parking, walked through the Miracle Mile Shops, and headed straight to Bellagio to see their Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. (We took pictures on our way there).
It was absolutely beautiful in there. It was crowded so we just walked right through and left.
We got to see the Bellagio Fountain Show. The song that played that afternoon was “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga. CL really enjoyed it.
After the water show, we headed to one of the Monorail stations because CL wanted to ride it. We did a round trip to see where it ended before getting off to find tacos.
Let me rant for a little here lol…..
We were looking for Tacos El Gordo on the north end of the strip. I don’t remember where we got off, but it took us an hour just to get there. And when we got there, we literally waited in line for ANOTHER HOUR. Alex and I had to separate due to their stupid line system (specialty tacos in one and asada/carnitas, etc in another). It was the STUPIDEST thing EVER and some asshole cut me off so I went off on him…I didn’t take a picture of the place or the food because I was fuming by the time I got my food. As good as the food was, I do not recommend the place. Overpriced, wait is too long, and it was EXTREMELY crowded. After that ordeal, we walked back to the Monorail.
I tried to take a photo on the way back to cheer us up.
We got off behind Planet Hollywood and guess what you guys? WE WERE IN THE WRONG PARKING GARAGE!! We had to do MORE walking, I didn’t know if I should be mad, cry or laugh because it had been a long day. Possibly the most stressful for CL too. Anyway, we laughed it off and walked around to the correct garage.
After making Hunida wait for such a long time (I’m sooo sorry lovee!!!) we headed to her place to meet her fuzzy babies….I’m sooo happy I got to meet them. I was more excited to meet Benji (not pictured) but I fell in LOVE with Sushi! He was chubby and loveable! They laughed when I asked “is he fat or does he just look like that?” LMAO
Sushi was so CUTE. Honestly. I miss him. He loved the attention. I tried to pet Twinkle Star but she was too shy. Finally, third time(?) was the charm. She actually let me pet her and rub her belly and she jumped onto the cat tree and posed for me! T_T What a sweetheart!
Alex stayed inside a bit to smoke with Hunida and her bf while CL and I waited outside. I’m pretty sure CL and I heard something in the bushes but couldn’t figure out what it was LMAO. When they came down, we headed to Fashion Show Mall (picture taken earlier in the day).
While there, we got treats from Honeymee. My boys got a soft serve cone, while I got a Matcha tea. I know Hunida and her bf weren’t fans of it, but I didn’t mind it that much? I’ve tasted worse. Definitely tasted very watered down though.
We walked around the mall and went into a few stores looking for souvenirs and a sweater for me because I needed one. All the stores had those soft teddy sweaters that are apparently trending but I didn’t want one of those, so when Hunida took me to Cotton On, I found the perfect, olive hoodie in the men’s section, lol. You’ll see me wearing it in photos of Day 4. We also saw two photobooths and took some pics there. Thanks to Hunida for the second pic! ❤
Soon we got hungry, soo…fast forward to the place we chose for dinner:
I got the Tequila Sunburn Glazed Salmon topped with pineapple-mango salsa with green beans and cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes on the side. Alex chose the Lobster mac and cheese and a flight of drinks.
That salmon! So juicy and delicious. I would love to recreate this glaze and salsa at home. Thanks Hunida for recommending this place, I also recommend!.
After dinner we went back to the strip. The lovely Hunida decided to skip work (I love you, thank you!) so we walked around for a few hours. I found IT’Sugar as we walked by and went in there to find the Dwight Shrute Bobblehead that my brother in law told me he had seen there. The store is pretty neat inside too. Huge candy sculptures and big candy in general.
I think we walked a bit more before parting ways because it was around midnight when we were heading back to the parking garage. I was really tired after a long day of walking. I was ready to sleep.
Day 4: More Walking + Sight-Seeing
Alright, LAST DAY! We did the same thing as the day before, more walking and sight-seeing, so I won’t bore you with details. After checking out, we went to a taco shop behind the Stratosphere Tower on the north end of the strip called Tacos Mexico.
Whoa! Delicious! The service was lovely, the wait wasn’t bad, food was delicious! I recommend this place over Tacos El Gordo. Since we were so close to the Strat Tower, I wanted to stop and take photos. There was a souvenir shop in the corner so we walked in there too and got a few more things.
This is the sweater I got the day before at Cotton On.
We left and parked at Treasure Island (free parking) and walked towards Caesars Palace Forum Shops to catch The Fall of Atlantis Show. We stopped at The Mirage on the way for photos.
Walking through The Forum Shops was insane. I am SO MAD that they make you walk the entire mall JUST to see the Atlantis show. So stupid but also genius marketing, lol. We stopped at the Fountain of the Gods because I can’t believe something this HUGE is inside a building. It’s insane.
The show was pretty cool. I had never seen an animatronic show, CL really enjoyed it, especially when there was fire. Neat. On the way back I took a pic in front of the xmas tree.
That’s all we had time to see that afternoon so we headed back to our car and headed to Container Park so CL could play. He was a bit upset when we got there, but somehow I convinced him to go play and we turned that frown into a smile. While we waited for Hunida and her bf, I took some pictures of the place. Super cool.
Love the treehouse in the middle but the tallest section was closed off.
When they got there, Alex went off with them to grab snacks while I watched CL. Shortly after we went to the strip to eat at Pin-Up Pizza. I couldn’t resist going after Hunida blogged about it a few months back. The slices are huge! I got a margarita (yum) but couldn’t finish it!
I wanted more photos with Hunida before taking off. Thanks to Hunida’s bf for taking our family photo! 🙂
When I was taking group photos, Batman walked by and took one for us and also took a selfie with us! 😀 Hunida was glad he didn’t ask for tips!
We headed out to Insomnia Cookies right away to try those infamous cookie ice cream sandwiches Hunida loves. I must say I’m impressed. I got a white chocolate macadamia cookie and a snicker doodle with cookies and cream ice cream.
Big Chicken was visible right outside the window and since Hunida and her bf shared a slice of pizza, they were still hungry. Alex ended up getting sliders and I had half of one, super delicious and juicy. I’ve never had a chicken sandwich like this one. Best I’ve tried.
We talked a bit more with them before saying goodbye. I really loved our conversations and I really didn’t want to leave but we needed to catch our flight. 😦 Thanks Hunida for hanging out with us!! ❤
We tried to drive by The Mirage to see if we could catch the volcano but we barely missed it, I think I got like three seconds of it when it was starting on video.
We barely caught our flight because dropping the car off and getting through the security gates took longer than expected. Luckily we made it on time. Overall it was a great trip, though I did learn that flying scares me and gives me real anxiety. I had a hard time relaxing during the flight, no kidding. So. Much. Turbulence.
And just in time like promised, I was able to finish editing my VLOG highlights. The beginning I do talk a bit and show you some souvenirs I got over there, I made sure to time stamp the video in the description of when it starts.
Thanks if you watch! I worked so hard on it and I enjoyed editing it 🙂
It was raining and cold when we landed. I miss the warm Vegas weather. I cannot wait to go back, hopefully next March… I’m going to shut up now because this post is preeeetyyyy long, I’m sorry!! Thanks so much for stopping by guys!
