The cake!!
I woke up quite early today due to me still trying to adjust to Vegas time. Me and Wendy chatted for a while and then Wendy very kindly bought me room service breakfast as a birthday treat. After that we went to the pool to reserve some chairs for the other TB's that were coming over later. This is when we found out that they have guys checking everyone entering the pool area for hotel keys. Wendy spoke to Melanie who then said they were going to the Flamingo and that we would meet at the Harley Davidson Cafe at 5pm. this is when I also found out that the original birthday girl Melissa wasn't going to be there so it was now up to me to play the part of birthday girl.

Since we had a few hours and i'm really not a lying in the sun person I went back to the room and made myself an appointment at the spa.
30 and thrilling. Again...


Me and Wendy got to the HD Cafe bang on 5pm. They were still setting up the table so we waited for everyone else at the bar. Not long after everybody was seated with me and Adrian somewhere near the middle for celebration purposes. I was really having trouble staying awake that evening and I wasn't very hungry so agreed to split a meal with Julie. I wasn't drinking either until Melanie surprised a few of us with shots of Patron. I'm not normally a shots person but I couldn't say no and to my surprise, actually liked it!! I was also presented with a "30 and thrilling" sash and after dinner the HUGE cake arrived. Me and Adrian blew out the candles and cut the cake and dished out the slices.

After the bill was sorted we all headed for the Mix lounge in Mandalay Bay. This is where we found out that there was some sort of event and they were charging too much money earlier than we had been informed. So instead we went to the Eye Candy place in the casino. I didn't last long though and had to bail out early to get some sleep.
