Vegas, Baby

Hi guys πŸ˜€ HAPPY FRIDAY! What are you up to this weekend??

We got into Vegas at about 1am Vegas time, which is 4am Valdizzy time. I *tried* to sleep on the plane, but airplane sleep is quite different than real sleep. Needless to say, the ol’ internal clock is a little out of whack today! Sorry I’m late posting :/

We took the shuttle from the airport to the hotel and couldn’t believe how Austin Powers-ish our rooms are!



TV and sitting area

bed (2)

Powder room (The little black screen in the mirror is a TV)

bed (1)

View of the pool, which we’ll definitely be hitting up after our Insanity workout

bed (3)

And an apple, which I’m about to eat before we start our mission for some FOOD!


See ya later today with some fun Vegas pics and shenanigans…and those important people we’re seeing tonight πŸ˜‰

Have a very Happy Friday!


Something to talk about: Have you been to Vegas before? If so, what’s your favorite hotel?? My favorite by far, is the Bellagio. I LOVE the dancing fountains, the shops… and the gelato πŸ˜‰

    Been to Vegas a couple times. I love New York, New York and co-sign on the fountains at the Bellagio–best free entertainment in town.

  2. Heather (Heather's Dish) on April 23, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    how cool is that room?! i’ve never been to vegas before, but i’ve heard that the bellagio is the best πŸ™‚

  3. Marissa on April 23, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Is that TI? I stayed there in Feb! Vegas is a ton of fun!!

  4. Jessica @ How Sweet on April 23, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Jealous! I want to go. πŸ™‚ I’ve only ever stayed at the Bellagio – incredible!

  5. Jessica @ Dairy Free Bety on April 23, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    I stayed at the Aladin once, it was insane. We got a great deal and had this CRAZY room. It had double doors opening into the bathroom… Huge beautiful windows… super swanky… Loved it!

    Vegas is so much fun, I want to do a trip just for the shopping! πŸ™‚
    Maybe our honeymoon! πŸ˜‰

    I’ve got to go with you on the Bellagio there. I took my first trip to Vegas this Christmas with my family (my parents LOVE that place). It’s absolutely stunning – the Chihuly ceiling in the lobby is my favorite. Unfortunately, it was too chilly to use the pool, so I am utterly jealous because it was just about the coolest pool ever. Go see the Beatles LOVE Cirque de Soleil show. My favorite thing we did by FAR.

  7. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin on April 23, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Wow that room looks SO cool! I love the beds and thinks its hysterical that there’s a TV in the bathroom mirror. I’ve never been to Vegas but we had our conference for work in Reno, which is no where near as cool… Have a blast!!

  8. Katie on April 23, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    The view from your room looks like the Flamingo pool, but your room looks WAY nicer than the one I had there a couple of weeks ago!

  9. Allison @ Food For Healing on April 23, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    looks beautiful!

    I’ve never been, but wouldn’t mind going one day just to check it all out

  10. Bethany (Not Unless I'm Being Chased) on April 23, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    I was in Vegas for an educational conference a few years ago (I’d love to know who picked that location for an “educational” event!). I’m with you on the Bellagio; I think it’s so elegant.
    The first time I saw the Bellagio was in Ocean’s Eleven and I remember thinking it looked kind of cheesy, but when you see the fountains in person, it’s so awesome!

  11. Lauren @ eater not a runner on April 23, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    The only hotel I’ve ever stayed at is Treasure Island, but I’d love to stay at the Wynn….have a great time!

  12. Katie on April 23, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Oooh late night! I agree- airplane sleep is way different than real sleep! Hope you get some good sleep tonight!

    I’ve been to Vegas befoe but I was really young. Hopefully we can go once we move out West this summer!

  13. Nikki on April 23, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Definitely the Wynn. It’s pricey but worth it! The beds are amazzzzing and the pool, heaven!

  14. Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) on April 23, 2010 at 4:55 pm

    I have never been to Vegas. My husband has and he said it is crazy…can’t wait to see what you are up to! Have fun!!!

  15. Catherine on April 23, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    I was in Vegas this time last year at the Mandalay Bay hotel… loved it!!! I was with some girlies who like to drink a little (ok, a ton) more than I do so I can’t say it was my kind of trip, but the hotel was totally fab. Enjoy yourself!!

  16. on April 23, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    omh those rooms are crazy!! only in vegan baby πŸ˜‰

  17. Sana on April 23, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    I went when I was 10 year old! I had the best time everrr!!!

  18. Ana (AnActive Adventure) on April 23, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    So awesome!!! I have never been to Vegas, but my boyfriend has and says it is the best ever!!! Have fun girl πŸ™‚

  19. VeggieGirl on April 23, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    You know I’ve done Vegas πŸ˜‰

  20. Mama Pea on April 23, 2010 at 5:18 pm

    I’ve never been to Vegas. I’d have to bring a defibrillator for Pea Daddy. He’s a bit sheltered. :0

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:26 pm

      LOL. you two need a trip out here! i’ll babysit πŸ™‚

  21. ellie on April 23, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    I love Vegas! I’ve stayed at a few hotels but my favorite is definitely the Venetian. It’s gorgeous!!!

  22. Emily on April 23, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    That looks SO fun. Wish I was in Vegas:) Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  23. Kristin on April 23, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I love Vegas, so much in fact my fiance and I are getting married in the Caesar’s Palace Venus Garden there in October πŸ™‚

  24. shelly on April 23, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    I took my husband to Vegas for his 40th last year. We stayed at Paris and loved it!

  25. Danielle (Coffee Run) on April 23, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Your room is so cool! I was in vegas last summer and we stayed in the glass pyramid hotel (gah…I can’t remember the name)! I remember going for a run and it being SO easy because the land was completely flat πŸ˜€

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:25 pm

      luxor! my brother LOVES that hotel!

  26. Shayna @ Cuts and Curves on April 23, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    My husband and I had our honeymoon in vegas in august! We love it there πŸ™‚

    We stayed at the Venetian, but my all time favorite hotel on the strip was the Wynn. If you haven’t toured through it, give it a go. It’s incredibly beautiful. My hubby’s fave was the same as yours, the Bellagio. he was fond of all the fountains.

    my parents are in Vegas right now too. I’m so jealous of you all. I wish I was soaking up some rays and shopping till my hearts content!

  27. Shayna @ Cuts and Curves on April 23, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    Oh p.s. there is the greatest Nordstrum’s rack in vegas. Look it up, if you have time. We used a shopping cart to haul all our stuff around the store haha, and we walked away with some incredible purchases.

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:25 pm

      YES i can’t wait to hit it up!

  28. breakingsilence @ Freshman -15 on April 23, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Ahh, that pool looks fantastic.

  29. Donna on April 23, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    OMGoodness! Those beds are super nice! I’ve been a couple of times in the blistering hot and stayed at the Bellagio and Caesars, but I would love to try the Venetian or Palazzo next! It’s a lot closer of a walk to the mall! πŸ˜›

  30. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on April 23, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    The Venetian was my favorite but the Luxor and Ceasar’s Palace was pretty cool too.

  31. Laura @ Backstage Pass to Health & Happiness on April 23, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Have a GREAT time in Vegas!

    I am jealous, I was going to go there soon for a girlfriend getaway but it all kinda fell through. Maybe in the fall!

    My favorite hotel has to be the Bellagio – the garden and sculpture area is awesome. I have only stayed at the Golden Nugget, which is actually pretty nice but so far away (in Old Vegas – Fremont Street). The pool was super fun with a shark tank in the middle of it!

  32. LisaG on April 23, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    I’ve only been to Vegas once and stayed at the Wynn. It was in June and almost too hot to even swim. Have a wonderful trip.

  33. Bec on April 23, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Have a great weekend girly!

  34. Tay on April 23, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    I’ve been twice, and both times stayed at MGM. I’d love to stay somewhere with themed hotel rooms! I had no idea the Bellagio sold gelato or I definitely would’ve found some while I was there last month!

  35. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on April 23, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    I love Vegas….I think I go around 4 times a year. Hubby and I like boxing fight so we go to those often. I really like the Venetian because the rooms are big! What hotel are you staying at? Did you already mention that?

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:24 pm

      i’ll say which hotel we stayed at after we leave πŸ™‚ i put the pics up for guessing games though.

  36. Kelsey on April 23, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Ive been to vegas about 10 times πŸ™‚ my boyfriend lives there, so i travel back n forth. you should try to see the show KA its soooo good. most of the circus de soleil shows are good. have a good time. watch out for crazies πŸ™‚

  37. Ashley on April 23, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    last time i was in vegas, i stayed at the golden nugget, which was a total throwback to when vegas began on that side of town. but now that area is totally ghetto and scaaaaaary.
    however, the restaurant in golden nugget has a killer salad bar. it was delicious times.

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:24 pm

      whoa, good to know!

  38. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on April 23, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Never been to Vegas, but I want to! Love the Austin Powers room :p


  39. Emily on April 23, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    have fun in Vegas!! I love the Bellagio too; it’s where we stayed when we got married πŸ™‚

  40. Jenna on April 23, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Have funnnnn! I’ve never been to Vegas. I know, I know, I’m not living! Hopefully soon. πŸ™‚

  41. RhodeyGirl on April 23, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    I went to Vegas with my dad for work once. It was interesting. I ended up going out by myself after a business dinner and spent the night at Tao in the vip section with male Calvin Klein models dancing. It was an amazing evening I will never forget hahahahah! I had guts back in the day to go out alone like that!

    I also shopped my little heart out. I hope you have time to shop!

    • Fitnessista on April 23, 2010 at 9:23 pm

      haha sounds like a good night to me πŸ˜‰
      and the shopping has already began haha πŸ˜€

  42. Anne @ Your Kind of Salad on April 23, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Ooooh, I definitely have my favorites – but I love staying at the Venetian (the rooms are gorgeous!!); but I’m with you – I LOVE LOVE the Bellagio, it just makes feel like I’m really in Vegas πŸ™‚

  43. Kim on April 23, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    I’ll be in Vegas this Sunday till Wednesday to plan my wedding!!! Your pictures just got me sooo excited!! I want to be there now!!!!

  44. Judy (Cookbook Maven) on April 24, 2010 at 6:01 am

    We actually used to go regularly, but sadly it’s been a few years now.

    My favorite hotel we actually stayed in? The Mirage.

    Favorite hotel to wander around? It’s a toughie, but I’d have to say the Venetian.

    Altho I love wandering the desert shops at The Aladdin, and have wanted to stay there.

  45. Laury @ thefitnessriot on April 24, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    I have been to Vegas 6 times…..First off, I told my hubby NO Vegas this year, b/c we never venture out anywhere new–theres always SO much to do/ see in Vegas and it’s SUPER affordable (until we hit the casino & restaurant & clubs… yikes)

    However, seeing your pics is making me WAYYYY jealous πŸ˜‰

    My fav place to stay is Mirage or Caesars (Caesars pool is way better, but like the size of Mirage, not too big) I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Wynn…we had lunch at the beautiful place in there overlooking the golf course, most ah-maz-ing salad ever!

    I like how there’s SO much to do at Caesars, and I like the Mirage, Paris, Bellagio, Caesars part of the strip best, all the action!

    Tao=my heart

    And….WHERE is there a **Teavana** —that you can BUY iced tea by the glass?? Do tell??!! I missed that one!??

    Think I’ll go to Expedia right now and maybe check some rates πŸ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on April 24, 2010 at 7:54 pm

      at most teavanas you can!! πŸ™‚
      hope you get a vegas vacay sometime soon!

  46. Krista on April 24, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    Those are some FUNKY headboards! They’d probably keep me up all night…LOL!

  47. Keely Barr on August 5, 2012 at 9:12 am

    Ahhh, you stayed in the Flamingo! We did when we went in February this year! What did you think of it? xxx
