Can you believe it’s January 2nd already? I was lucky enough to end the year on a high note and wanted to share my trip to Vegas today, starting with a vlog of the day Adam and I saw Britney’s show!

We flew into Vegas on Tuesday night and saw Britney on Wednesday after a crazy day of walking all over The Strip. According to Adam’s FitBit we walked over 12 miles that day – definitely the most I have moved in a very long time!!!
Our legs were so sore by the end of the day but in a satisfying way because it meant we did a lot. Seeing Britney’s show was the highlight of the day. She did all of her hits so the crowd could sing along!
As much fun as we had, slipping into our bed that night felt so good. We stayed at The Aria which is our favorite resort in Vegas; their beds are so comfortable!
Adam and I have stayed at so many different resorts on The Strip over the last decade (Caesar’s Palace, MGM Grand, Paris, etc.) but The Aria is the one we keep coming back to. It’s one of the newer resorts and it’s less gambling focused and instead features a nice spa, upscale restaurants, a very nice fitness center, shopping and more. Of course there is gambling too.
This was the first trip to Vegas that Adam and I actually didn’t gamble at all. Usually we’ll play a little Blackjack and Poker but the weather was so nice outside that we really wanted to spend our time walking around. It’s not every day that us Floridians experience temperatures in the 60s during the day!
Each night we booked ourselves into a show. We saw Britney on Wednesday and then we took an Uber over to see Penn & Teller’s magic show on Thursday at The Rio. This was our third time seeing the show – we LOVE it! Every time we see the show it’s been changed at least a little bit.
This time they had everyone in the crowd take four cards at random before the show started. During the show they had us rip all four cards in half and then shuffle the pieces without looking.
Somehow at the end of all the shuffling and then a game of “he loves me, he loves me not” to get rid of most of the card pieces we ended up with just two card pieces left… and they formed one full card! I don’t know how that happened but it’s so cool!
On Friday night we went to see Cirque du Soleil’s Mystére at Treasure Island. If you’ve never seen a Cirque du Soleil show they all contain aerial acrobatics, dramatic dance, regular acrobatics and more.
Adam and I have seen every Cirque show out in Vegas besides The Beatles Love and Michael Jackson One. My favorite is O, Adam’s favorite is KÀ but both of us agree Mystére is our second favorite. We were worried it wouldn’t be good because it’s considered a legacy show but it was incredible!
After a third night of fun, it was time to return back to The Aria and pack. We had to check out of the resort at 1pm on Saturday, but our flight wasn’t until 10pm so we just hung out and watched sports in one of the lounges. Before we knew it the time had come to board the plane home.
I was sad that the trip was ending but excited to get home to see Cecil. He was at my mom’s while we were gone where I am sure he was spoiled but I think we can all agree there is no place like home!
Have you been to Vegas? What’s your favorite show/resort/thing to do?
