One of the things that I’m disappointed I didn’t get to do while in Vegas was go shopping. Before we left I’d discovered that there’s a huge discount shopping mall about 10 miles from the strip and I’d hoped to get over there. My wardrobe needs some freshening up and since the Canadian dollar is higher than the US dollar right now I might have really found some deals and saved some money too.
I’m not sure what I would have purchased as I need a little bit of everything from more casual clothes to dressy clothes. Perhaps some port authority clothing, and some shoes too? I don’t know.
As it is the only new clothing I came back with were some t-shirts, a B-5 media baseball cap and two CSI Las Vegas t-shirts. I love that tv show and since I was in Vegas I had to buy a shirt.
I also kept hearing how great the food in Vegas was supposed to be, but the only restaurant that we made it to was The Outback. We have that restaurant here and while the food was good I was hoping to get a chance to eat at restaurants or eat food that I don’t get a chance to eat very often. I think most of the rest of our meals were room service as I was too sick to go anywhere on Friday and room service certainly came in handy for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.
We really did enjoy Vegas though – despite my illness and a few complaints. Hopefully we’ll go back sometime in the new year. If we go back we’d like to go when the weather is similar to what we experienced this past week. It was always pretty much between 70F and 80F and very comfortable.
