Its Friday, Friday, Friday.  Do you have that song stuck in your head now?  Kenny and I fly out for Las Vegas very early in the morning tomorrow so I decided to do a Vegas themed Five on Friday because I am pretty excited for our mini vacay!

The Wynn - This is my favorite casino/hotel.  I love everything about it.  Kenny and were up in the air between staying here and the Mirage where we stayed last year.  But we finally settled on the Wynn and I am so excited.  It is so beautiful and I can't wait to park myself by the pool.  We don't really gamble so for me it is all about the pool and the bars that are the best for people watching.
La Reve - Le Reve is the Cirque De Soleil show we decided on.  We were between this one and KA which is the one where the lady died a few weeks ago.  So it is no longer running.  I have heard good things about this show.  I adored Love last year and almost went to see it again.  But this time I wanted to see something different.

Restaurants - Last year we planned out a lot of where we were going to eat but this time we are flying by the seat of our pants. We have zero reservations and there are even a few dive places I want to go eat.  Kenny knows all the places because he goes twice a year for a market.  It is nice to be familiar with a city like Vegas.  You can just go and do without worrying about anything.  Anyone have some great recommendations?  

Flight Anxiety- A few days before a trip I start to get super anxious about my flights.  Not because I am worried that they are crash.  More like I am worried I will miss my connection or something will happen and we will lose time on our vacation.  I don't get anxious about the return flights because by then the vacation is over.  Just on the way there.  Praying to the travel gods all goes well.

I could only think of four things about Las Vegas so I will share this amazing recipe that I made last week with you.  It is from Skinny Mom. Click HERE to get the recipe.  Kenny loved these enchiladas and I liked them a lot too.  I doubled the recipe and froze a pan of them for a night I didn't feel like cooking. I am hoping they freeze okay.  It makes them extra good when they are a lightened up version of Mexican food!

I am actually planning to trip to Vegas in the fall and I've been looking online for some fun things to do while i'm out there. It's a family trip, so I'm not looking for anything too wild, maybe some nice relaxing pool, or a water park. I do however to sneak away from the family at least one day and take advantage of all of the Las Vegas golf specials I've been reading about online. Have you played any golf in Vegas?

First time by the blog, and am SUPER jealous of your trip! And those enchiladas. :)

There's more you can enjoy in a hotel casino than gambling. They offer fine dining, good music, and other amenities which you and your family can take advantage of. Relaxation and entertainment at its finest are what hotel casinos are known for.
