Left Las Vegas...

...Last Friday. Sadly, I'm back (and sufficiently detoxed at this point). I traveled to the searing city in the desert last week with my Mom and sisters, Natasha and Stephanie. We had a lovely time eating, drinking, shopping and oh yes, playing the slots.

I'll let my little mosaic tell the tale...

From right to left:

1. My sisters Natasha (left) and Steph (right) waiting patiently for their morning meal.

2. Liberace's bowties. Love that guy.

3. A little terrier sculpture plucked directly from Liberace's boudoir.

4. The Wynn Resort. We were first-timers at this hotel. It's quite lovely. Great food too! We ate at Daniel Boulud Brasserie for dinner our first night in town.

5. Boo-tay adorns the front of the Riviera.

6. Rainbow Sprinkles anyone? Pour some in your morning java at the Peppermill.

7. Just like the real thing! Well, okay, not really.

8. Peppermill Restaurant. Great breakfast to be had at this Vegas institution.

9. One of the many Liberacemobiles.

10. I need this outfit!

11. Fireside Lounge at the Peppermill.

12. A must see if you're into the King of Bling. Get thee to the Liberace Museum!

Happy Monday everyone!!

Viva! Tom and I went to the Liberace Museum the day after our wedding (at the Graceland Wedding Chapel). It was all sorts of awesome. I bought a sparkly mirrored disco ball Xmas ornament from the gift shop. We went with my wacky aunt and uncle, and afterwards we had lunch at the Mexican restaurant next door. My uncle some dish with goat in it.

Let's hear it for good family times in Vegas!

I used to live a mile from Liberace Museum right off Tropicana. And I never went! That has been one of my regrets about things I didn't do while I lived there and your post makes it clear that I need to go sometime when I am back in Vegas! :D

The museum looks so much like his house in P.S.! I grew up in PS and we used to drive by to see if he was outside. LOVE HIM!

SOunds like you had a faboo time in LV!!! The Peppermill is one of my all time faves! Gotta love those huge portions they serve.

The Liberace Museum is always a good time. Next time, try visiting the Museum of Atomic Testing. It's scary in a good way.

HAHAHA, The BooTay really brings back some memeories (I am a former Las Vegas resident). I told my nieces that I was the 3rd girl from the left on the BooTay line up, and to to this day they think it is true, hahaha.
