Viva Las Vegas! A Recap

I’m baaaaack!! OK, well I’ve been back for a few days now but have been trying to catch up on sleep and get my voice back after my bachelorette-party weekend. We did pretty much what we set out to do, which was party, drink, and paint the town red. Overall it was a good time (other than a little bit of $$ drama, but that tends to happen when you have a huge group of 17 people).

The best part was that all these different groups of ladies I’m friends/family with all got to meet and spend time with each other—and it seemed like everyone got along really well. :) Oh, and the other best part was that my room was upgraded to a SWEET junior suite—thanks, Cosmo!!

Some other highlights were…

Marquee Dayclub: This was probably my favorite part of the trip. The sun was shining, the DJ was awesome, and everyone had such a great time. I love day parties!

Chandelier Bar: One of the most unique bars I’ve ever seen (it’s built into a ginormous chandelier). The drinks were a little sweet but the ambiance was great, and this was also the only place where we got a picture taken of all 17 of us.

Wet Republic: The pool party at MGM Grand. Cray cray is all I have to say. :)


From L to R: Bridesmaid K, Bridesmaid M, me, Bridesmaid A.M., Bridesmaid T / Personal photo

Custom T-Shirts: So the shirt below was custom ordered by Bridesmaid A.I. The front says “The Future Mrs. [Mr. Mongoose]” and the back says “Buy me a shot, I’m tying the knot!”


Breakfast at Wicked Spoon in the Cosmo—yum!! / Personal photo

Additionally, she ordered shirts for all the girls who came—the front said “Mongoose’s Entourage” (and by Mongoose I mean my first name), and the back of the shirt had each girl’s name on it. SO freaking cute!!!

Pizza & Naughty Cupcake Night: The last night, all the girls came to my suite for drinks, games, music, pizza, and naughty cupcakes. A nice chill way to end a crazy trip. :)


Ordered from Secret Pizza in the Cosmo. So good. / Personal photo

Last photo of the trip—my red pumps and crown in the closet. I was trying to be artistic by Instagram’ing it. / Personal photo

What type of bachelorette party did/will you have?

    So so fun! It’s looks like you didn’t even have to leave the Cosmopolitan! How was Wicked Spoon? I keep meaning to get myself over there.

    @daniellekira: The pizza was DELICIS!!

    @Mrs. Genie: Wicked Spoon was great–it’s HUGE buffet with a gazillion different options–we only went for breakfast/brunch but everyone enjoyed it. Plus for $9 extra, you get unlimited mimosas :)
