OMG...hard to believe Julie is leaving today...Waaahhhh! First Brett, then Dana, and ultimately Adrian left yesterday..Booooo! Now Julie goes home this afternoon and despite our best attempts, we couldn't talk her into changing her flight and staying another day...or two. LOL. After a completely useless morning (workwise) since our systems were down, I would end up being able to hang in the afternoon with the girls!
We took Julie on a whirlwind tour - first stop was food. Melanie suggested we go for Pho which was perfect since my throat was sore and I was a bit under the weather. We stopped at a cool place near Chinatown which Mel said is highly recommended. Not only did they have good Pho...they had BOBA!!!! OMG, time to tease our favorite Boba Whore (MzJulz85) - sorry chica!!!! Next it was off to satisfy Julie's sweet tooth and try frozen custard!!! WOW.
We call Louise to see what she's up to and find ourselves headed to Bellagio to show Julie the gardens and the fountain show but we quickly figured out it was time for them to switch the motif for the fall so it was under construction. WAAHHHH!!! But Louise called and she was in her room so we headed up and at least Julie could see the fountain show with a high roller view!!! Louise's room was INCREDIBLE...she had the most perfect view to the fountains and off to the left was Bill's Gambling Hall.
We goofed around in Louise's room a bit and watched the fountain show which was even more grand from up above. After the show, Julie was still checking the room out and came out of the bathroom with a question that floored us all. She said, "Can I have your shower cap?" WTF?!?! The look on all our faces was priceless! Apparently Julie's sister collects the various hotel toiletries and since Julie was flying, she didn't think she could fit the lotion or anything liquid in her carry on so she thought the shower cap would be good!!! HA HA. So, on your travels, collect the shower caps and we will all send them to Julie!!! :D
So, no trip to a hotel is complete without staging a few goofball photos, including Mel and I pretending to have a romantic moment in the tub together!!! LOL.
We decide to take Julie over to Caesar's so she can see the Forum Shops and we can goof around there. One of the first stops was the three story Fao Schwartz. OMG what a fun store!!!! Amazing the pics that emerged from that shopping adventure. My Tim (TYoungTX) tribute to his snake photo, to Melanie and her beavers!!! I am sure this firmly convinced Louise that we need to be committed!!! Mel and Julie played on the disco biscuit like video game, Mel found Galaga (check her out Brett!!) and I had fun trying to play with the little squirrel toys!! LOL.
Sadly, it was now time to take Julie to the airport and wish her a safe flight home too.
Mel and I dropped Louise off so she could go see a show and we headed home for a night of actual relaxing (aka blogging). We managed to stay up pretty late and John decided to stop by for a bit around 1am!! Such nightowls!! HA HA. We chatted for a bit, shared some of the silly photos of the weekend and it was time for him to leave and us to get some sleep since Mel and I had a big day Tuesday...it was tattoo time!!!! We said bye to John and I headed off to bed in anticipation of a busy day ahead!!!
