State line...Buffalo Bill's and the huge roller coaster

Friday 11/20/2009.....we arrived at state line about 12:30pm and we went straight to the Outlet Mall!! Did a little shopping before heading to our destination, Las Vegas, NV!!  We arrived around 2:45pm and checked in to the Exalibur Hotel. We got Tower 1, 4th floor.

We rested a bit before heading out to grab some lunch with the rest of the family...grabbed some chinese food and went out for a walk on the strip. The streets weren't too crowded so the walk was pretty good. After a couple hours of walking around and taking pictures of some of the hotels and a cool looking cantina, we headed back to the hotel to get my things ready for my cousin's bachelorette party at the Moon Club @ Palms Hotel :) 

My cousin came to pick me up and we took of to the Luxor where she was staying and got ready there to head out to our friends room still at the Luxor hotel.

Outlet Mall!
When we got to the room it was all decorated with fun party favors and lots of alcohol!! After several drinks in the room we took a taxi to the Palms hotel to have a some more drinks there till we were able to go into Moon. We couldn't get in until 11pm so we waited a while. Once 11pm came walked over to the entrance and were taken to the elevator that took us up to the 53rd floor!!! OMG...it was awesome! We walked in only to walk out to the deck where you could see ALL of Vegas and it's bright lights!! This place was crazy, I think they call it Moon because when you are getting your dance on you look up and the whole roof opens up and you are dancing under the Moon!!  I loved it :)

We then walked over to the next club (they were linked together) The Playboy Club, this place was great! There are Playboy bunnies at the tables where you can play cards, next to them is the dance floor and around it are all these nice comfy couches.

Inside outlet mall...
I liked club Moon because of the outside deck, but the Playboy club because of the music. LOL....I personally thought it was better at the Playboy Club!

All of us dance the night away and then took off back to the hotel for a good night rest for her wedding the next day, that happened to be at 12pm. So, no staying up too late the night before :D

Saturday, got up early we to the Buffet at the Exalibur which was pretty good, they have a $29 buffet where you can have all you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner up until 10pm! For someone on a budget like me that was a pretty great bargain!! Seems like most hotels have it because I saw the same thing at the Luxor but for $32.

This was new to me, but again I haven't been to Vegas in over 6yrs, so they may have had this for a while already, but it was new to me.....ha ha ha!!  After breakfast we walked around the casino and then went back to our room to get ready for my cousin's wedding!!

We arrived at the Chapel about 12:15pm for her 12:30pm wedding. It was sooo beautiful! After the ceremony we went back to the hotel and grabbed some lunch at the buffet!! (all you do is show your wrist band and get it)....afterwards we walked around and gambled a bit. We played the slot machines for a while and drank some Chi-chi's which were yummy....we then walked around the strip at night and took the tram from Exalibur to Mandalay Bay which was pretty fun! Man, but was it chilly out! We just went back into the hotel and drank to keep warm and walked around and headed back to our rooms :)

Next day we got up grabbed some breakfast got our things ready to head back home! My trip was pretty short and did what I could on a budget and short time, but it was fun and now I want to go back again!! LOL.
