I can still hear the slot machines in my head! We had such a great time in Vegas but it feels good to be home. Las Vegas is not a cheap place to go. Where else can you spend $60 dollars on an appetizer and two drinks at any restaurant? Walking around Vegas during the holidays you would have no idea our economy isn't doing well right now. There were people everywhere and loads of foreign tourists. At times it felt like we were in a different country.

We weren't real lucky with the slot machines (I don't like them because they just eat my money). One night when James was playing poker I had to ask for more money because I kept losing. Luckily James did well with poker and covered some of my losses.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. We had some good meals and had tickets for KA. We went in the theater and were waiting for the show to begin. All of a sudden all of the lights went on and someone made an announcement that the show was canceled because of technical difficulties. Everyone thought he was joking and nobody got up. James realized he wasn't and we rushed to the ticket line and got to exchange for tickets on Friday night. I'm glad we got to go. It was absolutely amazing, especially the set. We were mesmerized!

We had a great time but are glad to be home. It was nice to have a mini vacation.

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Hawaii. That's where else you can spend $60 on 2 drinks and an appetizer. Highway robbery I tell ya, ROBBERY!
Glad you had fun but I'm like you, there's no place like home :)

I'm so glad you guys had a great time!

I remember feeling the same way about Vegas - I was SO ready to be home because there is no other place on earth where I felt like every single person I talked to wanted my money - either for gambling, eating, site-seeing, shows, etc. It's non-stop diarrhea of the wallet. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I will never forget my 14.00 bottle of water at the Pussy Cat Dolls show in Vegas. DAYUM!

Happy belated Thanksgiving!! Even if Vegas is EXPENSIVE--what an awesome way to spend your holiday!

I'm so glad you had a great time! I'm still jealous, but glad. Vegas is really expensive, but oh so much fun. Good thing you were able to exchange your tickets so you could still catch the show. Sounds like fun to me.
