Pooh and I decided to spend our anniversary in Vegas this year. We figured we could drive up right after work on Saturday, party with our friends from Vegas that night, and spend some quality couple time on Sunday and Monday.
Saturday night we went with our buddy Gian and some friends to Piranha for drinks and dancing, followed by Artisan for some after hours drinks and dancing. It was craaazy fun but omg I was so exhausted by the end of the night…or morning…I have no idea when we left.
We stayed at the Vdara Hotel & Spa located near the Aria and Cosmopolitan. We LOVED our suite! It was spacious, stylish, and I loved that the windows were large and spanned across the the entire room. It had a full kitchen, remote controlled window shades, a large spa shower, and a lovely tub for 2.
After having some fun in our room, we thought we’d splash around a bit in the pool. The only thing we didn’t like was that the hotel was supposed to have a bar at the pool, but for some reason it was closed. Since we wanted to enjoy cocktails by the pool, we had to get them from the bar in the main lobby and carry them back to the pool area. It was just awkward because we had to take the elevator and go to the fancy lobby in our wet swim shorts. Aside from that, it was very relaxing.
Pooh and I explored the other casinos and gambled a bit (no big wins unfortunately). We were going to have a nice anniversary dinner at some fancy restaurant, but we figured we might as well try a bit of indulgence and go all out at a buffet. We went to the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace. We were very lucky to arrive for dinner early because the line was insane as we were leaving. We had a great time stuffing our faces…so romantic. :)
After dinner we thought we’d spend our last night in Vegas having fun out-n-about just the two of us. We went out for drinks at different bars in different casinos and went to Revolution in Mirage to get our dance on. I love that we can have so much fun even if it’s just the two of us. We’re not only boyfriends, we’re best friends. We had an amazing time and ended the night stuffing our faces with junk food in our hotel room while watching Family Guy.
Waking up on our last day in Vegas was a little surreal; as though I were still dreaming. The sunlight shone softly through the shades. The sheets were like clouds against my skin. I could feel Pooh’s warmth as he held me close and whispered “Good morning…happy anniversary…”. I just wanted to stay in bed and cuddle with Pooh forever. I’m very happy that we decided to get away for our anniversary. I still can’t believe it’s been 11 years. Time definitely flies when you’re having fun.
Unfortunately, our time at the Vdara in Vegas had ended and it was time to check out. We were sad for our anniversary weekend to come to an end but we had a 5 hour drive back to San Diego to enjoy…*sad face*.
JK! We always have fun on our road trips…it’s great quality time and we have so much fun singing along to our favorite songs at the top of our lungs.
