Vegas Baby

Trey had a trip to Vegas scheduled for work to attend the ConAgg show, so I tagged along with him for a few days. We left late Friday night so we would have a full day on Saturday to see the sights. Friday night we stayed at the Embassy Suites, but on Saturday we moved to the MGM Signature. MGM Signature is awesome! Great suites with very comfortable beds. We had a great view of the pool, but because the weather was so yuck there was not much scenery at the pool. Saturday we spent most of the day walking around and looking at some of the different hotels and casinos. I love the different architecture in Vegas. While we were getting ready for dinner, some of Trey's friends from Milwaukee called and asked us to dinner. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Lakeside Grill at the Wynn Hotel. I had a filet with truffle macaroni and cheese. That was the best mac and cheese I have ever put in my mouth! During the meal different shows were performed on the water. The first show was a large inflatable frog that came out from the top of the waterfall. The frog sang and danced to a song. I was just as entertained by watching Trey and 2 of his coworkers pull their phones out and video the show. After a fabulous dinner, Trey and I went to see La Reve! Awesome show that I recommend for anyone going to Vegas. My kids would have loved it as well. After the show we headed back to our room, but stopped by the Eifell Tower at Paris for a look over the strip. Trey does not like heights so this was not his favorite thing to do, but the views were fabulous.

Sunday, Trey and I spent most of the day just walking around again. We had brunch at the Sugar Factory! Oh my, what a great place to eat. I had Belgian Waffles topped with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and melted white chocolate. Wow, is all I can say about that meal. We continued our tour of the different hotels and rode the gondolas at the Venetian after brunch, but had to go back early to get ready for a dinner with Trey's customers. For dinner we ate at Emerills at the MGM. I had Mahi Mahi with garlic mashed potatoes. It was really good, but the best part was of course the dessert. My favorite Creme Brulee!!! AWESOME! After dinner we had a late night of entertaining customers at the Piano Bar at New York New York! Fun times, but I really found out how old I was when I woke up the next morning.
Monday, Trey and I completed our tour of the different hotels today. We had lunch at Serendipity III. It was pretty good, but not my favorite place. We did have one of their famous frozen hot chocolate. It was good. For dinner we ate at Galaghers at New York New York with customers. It was a great steak place, but my steak was way too big. We ended the night with a few drinks with Trey's boss and ran into a few people from Milwaukee we had not seen in a while. I flew home on Tuesday by myself and Trey will be home Thursday. He is working hard I'm sure at all the special dinners and breakfasts he is having with customers the next few days. He loves his new job and I am so happy! He is getting to do lots of great new things and is truly excited about working. The trip was wonderful and I hope I get to go back to Vegas in '12 when Trey goes for MineExpo!
