Viva Las Vegas part 1

My sister and I took a girls trip to Vegas! We have never taken a trip together 'just for fun' and we had a blast! 
I didn't take a ton of pictures but there are still too many to share in one post so I'll split them up over the next few posts. (if you are looking for stitching, you might want to skip the next few posts - I did take something but I didn't put in a single stitch)

We had a 6:00am flight out of Houston.  We drove to Houston Sunday night but neither of us slept well and we got up at 3:45 to head to the airport. We thought we might be a little early (better early than late) but the airport was already busy. We made our way to our gate and after a stop in Phoenix to change planes we were on our way to Vegas.

We arrived too early to check in to our hotel so we rented a car (Jeep) and drove out to Hoover Dam. We took a tour of the power plant. I'm always amazed when I see huge building projects that were built before 'modern technology'.

This place is huge. 

A definite must-see but might I suggest you not do it in August!

Just a note before you see this next photo. It's August, we are in the desert, if we had put on makeup when we got up at 3:45am it would have melted off by now. We both had already taken our hats off before we decided to jump out and take a selfie with the Jeep.

I warned you ahead of time!

We weren't going to need the Jeep again so we returned it and headed to our hotel.

The view from our room.

By the time we got checked in it was mid-afternoon and only having had a snack at the airport for breakfast we were tired and hungry so we headed downstairs and found a place to sit in the a/c and catch our breath before heading back out in the heat.

More later!

Hi Tina! Oh, I'm sure your sister and you had a great time. I love going to Las Vegas. I'm not a gambler but love the shows, the lights and of course the food. Thank you so much for popping in to see me. I'm in The Woodlands in Texas. Where are you?

Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Tina, it looks like you had a fabulous time. Those nachos look incredible. Glad you were able to take in the Hoover Dam! The picture of you and your sister is a good one. Thank you for sharing!
