Valentine’s Day fell on a long weekend, so the stars lined up for a Recession-ific mini vacation to Vegas!
This time, we stayed at the Silverton Casino, one of my faves because they have real live Mermaids there! A little off the strip, and not much glitz, but overall, a pretty decent Casino.

We started our trip at 5:30am, got some coffee (our new addiction) and headed out on the road to Sin City. We always forget that Los Angeles still has a winter, and up in the mountains, they had a decent amount of snow! Some people even pulled over so their kids could play in the snow!

Las Vegas was “covered” in snow!

The first night we were there (Valentine’s Day night), we went to see “Tony and Tina’s Italian Wedding” at the Planet Hollywood Casino.

It was fun because we had wedding receptions on the brain. We really felt like we were at a wedding, but we think it might have been more fun if we had a bigger group of friends there too. All the women got Roses since it was Valentine’s day!

Just like a real wedding reception, they played the Y.M.C.A and all the “guests” got to dance. haha

They even served real wedding cake!

After the dinner/show, it was photoshoot time. haha

On Sunday, we started the day with Dunkin Donuts!!!!! Yes! They have Dunkin Donuts in Las Vegas now!

Next, we started our Lovely Vegas Suburb roadtrip. Yep. We visited the Green Valley Ranch hotel, the Red Rocks Casino, and some random Golf Club that Irving wanted to check out…(yea, he owes me for that one).

But look what we saw on the drive!! That’s right… Seven Eleven is coming soon ya’ll!

But the best part of the whollllllle trip?! The Silverton Casino’s slots giveaway prize!! They were giving away Snuggies!!! HAHAHAHA We just thought this was HIL-ARIOUS

Indeed this Valentine’s Day (our 8th!) was almost as good as our 2nd Valentine’s Day in Paris!
