Time for Vegas!
Kyle Thomas and I got up early, got checked out, and hit the 10 East on our way to Las Vegas. Viva Las Vegas baby! After a Starbucks run and veggie salad from Subway, we were completely ready for the 2.5 hours to Vegas. And the drive turned out to be pretty fun. I got a tweet from Rose McGowan (@rosemcgowan)!! She had seen my tweet to her earlier that morning and she responded! She tweeted that I should’ve said ‘hi’ to her at the Katy Perry concert! Woo hoo! Rose McGowan wanted me to say hello to her! Wowza! That’s big! Then we stopped in Barstow to pick up several bags of ice! We brought along a cooler full of ‘beverages’ that needed to be nice and frosty cool for when we arrived in Vegas! I mean, hey, people are going to need something to drink, right?! Darth and I are thoughtful like that, what can I say?!
We continued our drive…all the while tweeting and snapping photos…but also checking out some of the sites from Holly Madison’s guide to Las Vegas, The Showgirl Next Door, which I brought along in hopes of getting signed by Holly herself.
We finally arrived in Vegas around 2pm and got to our hotel, the Cosmopolitan! This hotel is super fab, let me tell you. It is young and hip and posh and I just adore it! Seriously, I would move into the Cosmopolitan if I could. Not only is the entire hotel beautiful, the rooms are equally gorgeous. We had some time to kill before checking into our room, so it was straight to Betsey Johnson across the steet at Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile shops for more birthday goodies! And this lucky doll scored again with a pink sparkly tutu dress, a jeweled bow necklace and some blinged-out heels with glittery bows on them. Love, love, love!!!
Then we headed back to the Cosmopolitan to get into our room and get ready for dinner with family and friends. And the Cosmo did not disappoint with the best room we’ve had thus far.
We stayed in a 1,200 sqft wrap around suite. And it had the most gorgeous views of the entire strip, including the Belagio Fountains.
We then got ready to go out to dinner. The restaurant of choice? Sugar Factory Brassiere, doi! And on the way there, which is a brief walk across the street, I was getting a ton of attention in my pink princess party dress. My father-in-law Rickmeister even commented that he thought I got more stares than my BIL Colin does when walking around on a busy street. And he’s a 6’5″ NFL QB! Needless to say, I was quite pleased by that comment. I mean, who doesn’t love getting lots of attention?!
When we got to Sugar Factory, we had a table reserved that was ready for us. Everyone’s food was so delicious! SF has a really broad menu, so everyone was able to find something they wanted. And the first thing I found was the perfect way to kick off my birthday dinner!
Kyle Thomas had a Hubba Bubba martini and even my dad, Twade, got in on the action with a Cinammon Toast Crunch Martini. Yummy! We took some more pictures, ate all of our food, and then headed back to our suite to party!
We still had a lot of things to do on the evening agenda, including present-opening, birthday cake-eating and a little bit more drinking! All with my closest friends and family! So back to the Cosmopolitan for the rest of the evenings events!
