Preggers in Las Vegas


This past weekend, my belly and I joined up with my parents and my aunt and uncle to celebrate my favorite twins' birthday - Laura and Connor turned 21!

I still remember visiting them in the hospital when they were born. Laura only weighed 1.5 lbs and looked like a very tiny frog!

Now that you have that odd visual in your head, back to Vegas!

We got in Friday afternoon and joined the group for dinner at a favorite of theirs, Mon Ami Gabi inside Paris. It was amazing. In true Melina form, I ate my food before I couldn't remember to take a picture, but I had a wonderful tomato salad and a huge bowl of mussels. The restaurant is known for their steak frites, which is what Laura, my aunt Kathy and dad all had. Everyone finished their meal off with a few stolen bites of profiteroles courtesy of the birthday kids.

We ended the first night downtown to show the twins some of the older casinos, including the Golden Nugget.

Saturday, we spent the day shopping at Caesars Palace and hit up our pool at the Rio. It was a nice, relaxing day. That night, we got ready for another scrumptious dinner, this time off the strip at Ferraros.  

And this dinner was to.die.for. Laura and I got the bucatini carbonara pasta and it was insane. I've never had better carbonara in my life. It was one of those meals that's so delicious that you can't decide what's more painful, leaving some on your plate or finishing those last bites even when you're ridiculously full. Again, no pictures, but a photo wouldn't do it justice. I highly recommend this place!

Then it was off to MGM Grand to catch the Cirque de Soleil show, KA. The show was amazing. It was my first Cirque de Soleil performance, and I loved it. The set and acrobats were just too cool. I was entertained the entire time, and our fourth row seats didn't hurt either!

We had a short but fantastic weekend. Oh and if you're wondering if anyone won big - I got lucky on one of the slots at the end of Saturday night and won $400. I said all weekend that I just wanted to win enough money to buy this light fixture for the nursery, and I did!

Thank you twins for letting me join in on your birthday fun. Looking forward to having some serious cocktails with you once this baby is born.

Love you guys! xoxo
