Vegas adventures

Vegas recap continues 🙂

Pool party

While we were in Vegas, we stayed at the Signature, which is where the Pilot and I stayed last time we were there for the Pac-12 tournament. It’s adjacent to the MGM, where all of the basketball games are held, so it makes it a convenient spot. I guess they’re moving the tournament to the new arena by the Monte Carlo next year, so we may explore staying somewhere else.

We shared a suite, so there were two rooms exactly like the ones we had last time

Hotel room 3

with an adjoining lounge area, including a kitchen, dining room table,

and balcony.

Our main mission was to watch the Wildcats play, and since Betsy’s beloved Bruins lost in the first round, she was an honorary Wildcat for the night. 😉

When we bought our tickets, the regular sessions were sold out, and all they had left were tickets for the tournament. So, we bought those, and figured we could get Friday game tickets when we got into town. We got majorly hooked up on, which is a verified ticket resale option, so you know everything is legit. We were right behind the basket and the Oregon band. 

The crowd was also about 90% U of A fans, which was amazing. We sat next to an entire row of loud and hilarious Arizona fans. 

Basketball game

We ended up losing in overtime -after I was positive the game was over, so it was pretty thrilling- and we managed to sell our tickets for Saturday. We thought about going to the game anyway, but figured it would be more fun to go to dinner and clubbing instead. The Pilot went down to the arena and sold the tickets fairly quickly. I’m convinced it was the mustache.


Saturday afternoon, we spent some time shopping before the boys went off to gamble. Betsy and I continued our shopping blitz through the Forum Shops and then hit up the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood. We all ubered it back to the hotel to get ready for dinner at Craftsteak!

Dinner was so good, and we were all so full we wanted to crawl into a food coma and sleep forever, but we rallied and headed over to Hakkasan. 


Drinks + dancing is one of my favorite things, even though the DJ played techno music the whole time. Do clubs play hip hop anymore? I don’t even know. Also, I totally felt like the scene from Knocked Up when the two moms are trying to get into the club. BUT we got in for free and didn’t have to wait in line.

Probably because I’m a high roller.

Even though it was lovely to enjoy some time with fellow adults, SLEEP IN, and feel refreshed to head back into the 24/7 parenting duties, there’s nothing like coming home to your babies. I missed them so much.

Now we’re getting back in the swing of things, which has been extra fun with Daylight Savings. I never understood why people complain about it. I get it now haha.

Hope you’re enjoying the day and I’ll see ya in the morning!

    I have wondered this about bloggers forever — what do you guys use to take your pictures from so high up? I used to think it was maybe a selfie stick, but it the pic of you and Betsy it’s clearly not a selfie and the angle is WAY above you. Is it a giant tripod??

      It’s a tall husband 😉

    Oh vegas shenanigans…I have gone with my squad yearly the past few summers and we always come back with stories. I have the opposite experience with eating in vegas. I barely eat and am never hungry…probably because my body is constantly trying to digest the ridiculous amounts of champagne I’ve consumed.

    I’m a hip hop girl myself…but sadly most of the good places play EDM. When I went in August my group split up since some liked hip hop so we would go to places that had separate rooms for both. I’ll just say that the hip hop room always felt like the back of the bus. One nite we went to Drais around 4a and it was good.

    Sorry to hear about the Cats…my Wildcats (Villanova) lost too…so sad!

      haha that’s so funny! i always eat ALLTHEFOOD 🙂
      that’s a bummer about the hip hop music. we saw that hakkasan had a hip hop room as we were leaving, but it didn’t looking like a lot of fun. i’ll have to check out drais next time

    No time change is one of the many reasons I love living in Arizona

    • Fitnessista on March 14, 2016 at 9:57 pm

      i think it’s why it’s so confusing for me. growing up in AZ, i wasn’t used to it at all

    Looks like you had a blast in Vegas!! Such a fun city!

  6. sam on March 15, 2016 at 5:49 am

    Looks like so much fun! I’ve never been to Vegas, but I’m from Jersey and so Atlantic City does the trick for now. I know Vegas is SO much better though, so I can’t wait to go someday.

  7. Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! on March 15, 2016 at 7:07 am

    I’ve never been to Vegas but I REALLY REALLY want to go! This is giving me even more encouragement!

  8. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on March 15, 2016 at 9:15 am

    Haha I can’t remember the last time I officially went “clubbing” so I have no clue what’s in anymore. Oh the joys of getting old, but honestly I really would rather go to be early most nights.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2016 at 10:48 am

      sleep > anything haha

  9. Crystal on March 15, 2016 at 10:17 am

    The days of drinking and dancing are long gone for me. I’m more likely to go shopping, then to a fancy dinner, and then back to my hotel room to watch Nick at Night, lol. My introverted husband would probably die if I tried to take him to a club! Looks like you and your Pilot had a good time 🙂

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2016 at 10:47 am

      haha that sounds perfect 🙂 i’m about fancy dinner then jammies, too, but if we get the chance to go OUT out, i take it 🙂
      hope you had a great weekend!

    Looks like you guys had a blast! Where are your cute nude peep toe heels from? I have been looking for a pair like that! Thanks!

  11. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on March 15, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    I love Vegas! Glad you had fun!

  12. Megan on March 17, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    I live in Vegas and I’ve never been clubbing, haha. My husband is in the middle of mustache March, too. (I am so excited for April to get here.) Glad you had fun while you were here.
