Off to Vegas we go...


The Kilgores are off to Vegas this weekend! The Mister will be turning the big 3-5 on Monday, and he said he could think of no better place to be celebrating than at a black jack table in a casino on the Vegas strip with me. Ha! I've never been to Vegas before, so I'm really looking forward to this trip. We'll be shacking up at the Mirage for three nights, then moving over to the Flamingo for our last two days. The pools at both look a-ma-zing, and we plan to go every day -- since it'll be around 100 degrees for most of the week (whoa!) On Tuesday we're taking a day trip to the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam, and I couldn't be more excited -- the Grand Canyon is a place I've wanted to visit ever since I was a kid and saw a picture of it in a book. And we'd love to see a show and go to a special dinner out and about -- suggestions welcome!

Of course, I definitely want to find a great vintage shop while we're on the trip. I'm a little bummed that most of "old Vegas" is long gone -- I love everything here! -- but I'm hoping that we'll still see a few mid-century touches around town. And the lights! I am really, really looking forward to seeing all the lights. I've heard there's nothing else like it. 

I'll be popping in from time to time next week, but if you want, please keep in touch here + here. Viva Las Vegas! Have a great weekend

  1. Natalie--I am not sure if their of these things would interest you or if you have already been there, but these are two of Westin and my favorite activities in Vegas.

    And the Pinball Hall of Fame (they have my favorite game Theater of Magic among the 100's of games--also some of the best townie people watching of all time): http://www.pinballmuseum.org/
