Vegas Recap - Day 3

Alrighty - on to the last full day of our Vegas vacay...and the most enjoyable, if I do say so myself =)

Saturday was our "Lounge and Pool" day.  Our beautiful bride-to-be mentioned that she wanted part of her Vegas trip to be dedicated to pool lounging, so we took advantage of the amazing Mandalay Bay pool, and got a cabana on Saturday.

This was my first time ever getting a cabana at one of the pools, and even though it was a little pricey, it was absolutely worth every penny.  I highly recommend it!

We started the day with a little in-suite dining...

...and then put on our swim-suits, lotioned up, and headed to the pool!

The best pic of the inside - it had a ceiling fan, sofa, tv, ipod player, table, fridge and safe for all of our electronics when we wanted to explore!
We were all incredibly impressed with Mandalay Bay's pool.  It was extremely "luxurious" and not at all yucky.  I was a little concerned about going to a pool in Vegas, since I've heard some not-so-classy stories about things like Rehab at the Hard Rock hotel, but the concierge assured me that Mandalay Bay Beach was a little more chill and family-oriented.  They were right!  We couldn't have asked for a better pool experience.

They had a full beach, wave pool, lazy river (so fun!) and at least 2 other "lagoons", so we never had an issue with the pool getting crowded.  Overall, it was a great time!

After the pool, we headed back to the hotel to get ready to celebrate our lady of the hour!  We had a few pre-dinner snacks, a bridal shower, and then headed off to dinner.
Our selection of fruit and cheese...and a cake =)
Annie was super sweet and got everyone matching pj's for the trip!

Heading out for a night on the town!
We had lined up a delicious dinner at Battista's Hole in the Wall.  If you're ever in Vegas, this place is a must - it's right off the strip but the food is great and they serve you bottomless wine with your meal!

After dinner, everyone headed over to Cosmopolitan for a few drinks and to admire the scenery.  Cosmo is one of the newer casinos, and the inside is uber-girlie and fun!
One of the bars in Cosmopolitan - it's like you're inside a chandelier!
And that wrapped up our Saturday!  We definitely didn't want to have to wake up early for our flights the next day, but alas, all vacations must come to an end.

That's Vegas, Baby!


  1. That looks so fun! If Daniel ever goes back for work, I will definitely need to tag along (:
