I’m sorry to report that Photo of the Week is late this week because… Las Vegas. Enough said, right?

I spent the weekend hopping around Las Vegas in typical The Hangover fashion with my sister and my cousin. We stayed at the suite I won from Expedia at The Cosmopolitan, ate at STK, partied all over the strip and generally pretended to be millionaires. Then yesterday they left and I checked into a hostel located between an Elvis wedding chapel and an adult video store. Pretty much almost just as glamorous, right?

Photo A

Las Vegas Strip Helicopter Ride

In what was one of my favorite moments of the weekend, we took a helicopter ride over the strip! The views were stunning and it was an epic way to kick off a night.

Photo B

Las Vegas Nightclub

Inside XS nightclub, one of the most popular venues in Vegas.

Photo C

Week 75
Week 75

Doing a cocktail tasting at the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan. It was so much fun to hear from the mixologist all about the fancy cocktails I love so much.

Next week’s Photo of the Week will likely feature my first ever trip to the Grand Canyon! Which is your favorite photo this week?

      XS and Tryst — both in the Wynn — are my favorite places in Vegas!

    Oh I have to vote for A, no contest! What a gorgeous view. What a quintessential capture of Vegas. And it’s so clear!

      We’ve had clear skies… and freezing air! I was hoping it would be warmer here… wah.

    A…brilliant color contrats. I was hoping for a picture with both the Elvis wedding chapel and the adult video store in it.

    A gets my vote. The kalidescope of colors and the contrast with the sky is amazing.

    As a Californian I go to Vegas a lot… Already scheming on when to go back and I’m not even home yet! I actually like photo B the best, I love the red.

      Amanda I’m so jealous you get to go so frequently! I LOVE Vegas and I would love to be there once a year… but I’m not sure if my liver and my wallet can take it.

    I hope you took the helicopter tour where they are pouring the glasses of champagne freely before you go! It makes it even better :-).

      Heck yes! I will confess to you that I didn’t have a sip though… I was still hurting hard from the night before. My sister and cousin had my share 🙂

    The helicopter shot is awesome! I flew through Vegas twice this last week with my sister – didn’t know I should’ve also waved hi to you! I tried to take a photo out the airplane window and succeeded in blurry colors so really appreciate photo A!

      Aww, wish we had known 🙂 And yes, airplane photography is a difficult art form!

    I absolutely love photo A. I actually took a similar picture during a helicopter ride over Vegas on my 21st birthday! However, your picture looks 100 times more stunning as I only had my IPhone with me…. Lol!

    How did you win that trip from Expedia…random giveaway?

      Expedia sponsored a huge part at the TBEX conference and I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of a drawing!
