Livin' it up in Vegas!....

Our Beautiful Hotel-The Venetian!

We weren't originally going to stay at the Venetian, but in the end, we ended up treating ourselves to a week full of luxury(and probably the last time for the next 20 years!) I have never seen (nor stayed) in a hotel so nice in my entire life!! WOw, the Venetian was absolutely gorgeous and worthy of each of it's 5 stars! I think Ryan and I felt like too little kids being treated to the worlds largest ice-cream Sundae and were ridiculously giddy about it the entire time! We had debated whether to stay there or in it's newer addition(The Palazzo) but they are both the same rooms now, same style, and are both connected to eachother so it made no difference! It was so cool-the night we went to phantom, we literally took the elevator down 28 floors, got out, took a left, and walked right into the Phantom of the Opera Theatre! THe show by the way, was AMAZING! The special effects, the atmosphere, even the lighting was spectaculor. It was awesome. We basically just walked around all week, did some shopping, ate some really yummy food, watched movies and sports-center on our flat screens in the same room at the SAME time(one for each of us!) stayed up late, and slept in even later. Doesn't get much better than that, does it?! Our last night there, we saw Jersey Boys. Now, apparently there are a lot of contraversial oppinions of this show....I'm sure I could say a lot of things about this show, but if I am going to say one thing it would be this: So FUN! Yes, there were a lot of things that I could have done with out-blah blah blah,but I don't want to talk about that-It was amazing! The singing was phenomenal, you know all the songs from growing up no matter how old you are, and personally, I'd say if you get a chance to go see it, DO it!! So so so much fun!

Of course I went straight for the room service menu!

And I swear Ryan played with the remote control blinds/shades/curtains for 10 mins!

Ideal reading spot!(you know I gotta have one of those!)

My "luxurious" pose!LOL(This will only be humorous to a select few of you, but I couldn't resist!)~

These are pics of inside the Venetian Hotel, where their shopping and restaurants and are. It's so gorgeous and it feels and looks just like you're in Venice!

THese are some of the Palazzo which is attached to the Venetian! So pretty!

We had such a great time, and I'm ready to do it again already!.....(*sigh*if only!hehe!)
