Waking Up In Vegas Part 2

This post is WAY overdue!
We went to Vegas back in March and I am just now getting around to sharing part 2 of our great trip with my fam.
What can I say? Bloggin has just been like a bit of a chore lately and that is when it is zerooo fun.
I have taken a step back and have decided when I have the time I will blog.
When I dont? I won't.
That doesn't mean I don't still love blogging because I sooooo do.
Just sometimes real life gets in the way and that is A-okay.
Did I mention the fact I am planning a wedding??

Anywho....let's recap.
So back in March Kevin Rex and I traveled to Viva Las Vegas with my family for a mini vacay.
It was fabulous.

Our 2nd day in Vegas.
Look at that pretty sunrise over those mountains.

We did our morning routine of my daddo fetching breakfast for us.
The man is a rise and shine kinda gambler.
We spent the mornings sippin mimosas and playing nickel slots and 5 dollar black jack.
High rollers.


If it's not appropriate to wear a weave in Vegas, then I don't know when it is.
Roxxxxy came out to play....and pretty much stayed all trip so I could cut down on the hair primping. Any excuse not to wash my hair is fine by me.


Our trip was right during the beginning of March Madness and we felt the need to sport our Kentucky Blue.
We beat Florida that day.
It was a good day.

We spent our 2nd day out doing some site seeing and a lil shopping.





I spy with my little eye Loueeeey Veee.



Our next trip to Vegas post wedding will be spent here.
It's amazing. So glitzy and glamorous.
It's the new hot spot....or so the casino workers said.
Crystals and bling bling dripping from the ceilings everywhere in the Cosmo


Who doesn't need their pic in a stiletto?

Even baby brother played along...with encouragement.


Who wouldn't want to hang out here?

Lunch was at Margaritaville
It's a tradition of mine and Kev's.
We always split the nachos. Delish.
Mom and I strolled down to the Sugar Factory. I wanted to see what all the buzz was about.
They had some amazing desserts and apparently every celebrity in hollywood has their own lollipop in that store.



After walking around all day and doing a little damage at the Roulette table, we came back to the hotel and had a mini power nap and got ready for a night out.


I swear my dad does smile. ha!
Mama and I rocking the animal print for our dinner at Joe's.
Joe's is mine and Kev's favorite restaurant in Vegas. They have the most amazing seafood. My parents loved it!
My mama has on 4 inch heels (i have on flats). She is NOT that tall like the rest of us.

Love my mama!

Love him so much too :-)


Baby bro sometimes gives me sas when I am breaking out the camera.
he loves me though.

Love these 4 so much. Most imporant people in my life :-)


Clearly Day 2 was a success!
And we stopped to watch the fountain show on the way home from dinner.
This was my third time in Vegas and I still had not watched the famous water show at Bellagio.
It was so cool!
The water choreographed to music was very pretty and it was one of my most favorite things I have done in Vegas. I know I am a sucker for the little things.


Hope y'all are having a great week!!!
