By now you are probably sick to death of my Vegas time. lol So here is the finale. [at last]
After charging my chariot and getting about an hour or so of rest, I could no longer sit still. Called Lu and she was at the Mall in the Planet Hollywood Hotel area. She headed back and I met her in the Paris lobby. When we got outside there was a bus getting ready to load and no way through the sidewalk area for me. We figured there would be a ramp by the stairs, no such luck. So we went back by the bus and figured we would have to wait until they got loaded to get through. A young man, who most might have looked at with ‘hoodlum’ tag, looked over and asked if we needed to get on the bus. We told him no we need to get by on the sidewalk. He was adorable, he moved the crowd out of our way to let us through. Never judge a book by its cover. He had the best smile ever. We did all the ty’s and yw’s and headed to the light to cross the driveway.
We got to the people mover escalators and kind of wondered how to go up. I have never been up a moving ramp before. lol There was one not moving but it had a rope crossing it. Just then a young man opened the rope and let us go up. It was a bit steep and i was a tad nervous going up. Lu was behind me making sure I did not tip. Lucky for her I didn’t 🙂 Then, OMG, Heaven!! The mall…
Poor Lu had to stop to every shoe store with me. lol I so wanted a pair of square toe chunky heeled boots. Unfortunately my ankles and drop foot issue + a bit of swelling made getting the dang boots on quite difficult. But, she was such a sport and went along with me. Kelly and Cynthia called and we met up with them. We checked a couple more shoes stores, lol then decided it was time for a drink!! Woo Hoo! We went to Fat Tuesdays and wow the cups they had! lol Lu and I got these HUGE cups of lava flows and then she and Kelly had a couple jello shots. Cynthia and Kelly got lil small girly drinks. lol
Kelly, Cynthia and Lu. See our biggee cups! lol The lava flow tasted nothing like the one I had in hawaii years ago, so Kelly took it up to the nice guy and he dumped it and refilled it with a pina colada for FREE!! lol So cool of him! We finally realized we needed food. lol So we went into Planet Hollywood and found an awesome sandwich shop. Must remember the name! They had the best sandwiches around. Rog finally found us, and he got some dinner as well. Cyn and Kel went back to their hotels and Lu, Rog and I went and did a couple slots then back into the mall. Rog hung for a few then I guess shopping wasn’t his thing! lol I got the kids some Vegas t-shirts and stuff. My damn chair was not fully charged as stupid me so excited did not let it charge enough. So we figured we had better head back. [only time i remembered i was in the chair as it hindered my time, dang thing] Going back down the ramp was a fun experience. Was waiting to go flying down. Lu held on the back to make sure it didn’t! lol
We finally got back to the Paris, got Laurie up and we met in the bar area. Kelly, after winning at the slots, came on over as well. We had our martinis. Sadly we were too late for the two for one martinis. lol We hung out for a bit and then Laurie had to go back up as she was leaving early in the morning. 😦 Pics and hugzzz all around. Then Lu headed up to her room as well. Kelly and I went and played slots until almost 3am. Kelly won a couple more times too. Lucky. 🙂 Then up we went.
I woke up around 8am, making poor Rog get up as well. I wanted to spend a lil time with Lu, Cyn, and Kel before we had to head home. We had room service breakfast. Oh mercy…I had vanilla bean French toast and cappuccino. I was in heaven. Rog was shocked as i had already gotten ready to go. lol Cynthia came over and up to our room and we hung out for a few, then went downstairs to meet Lu and Kel for coffee and what not. Rog got the van all packed and ready and let me hang with the girls. He really is a ‘gem’! Love you Rog!! The girls were staying until Tuesday. Lu and Cyn were going to a convention for packaging for their shops.
It was quite hard to say goodbye for me. We all hugged and took a few more pics. Then it was time. Rog and i headed back up to the room, did the checkout and went to the parking for the van. Once we got in the van the tears rolled some. I did not want the weekend to end. I am so hoping that this becomes a yearly thing or even every other. The women are truly fabulous! This will be something I remember and cherish forever!! Thanks to all the fabulous ladies that have made my life even more full!
Blessings and Hope!!
