Vegas - Recovery & Recap (The Beginning)

Instagram pic from when we landed in Las Vegas (which I noticed has the location tagged as Orlando. Um... interesting?)

I'm back! Why is it so exhausting to get back from vacation? Who knows. I'm trying to catch up, but in the meantime here's our first day in Vegas:
Really, really early in the morning when my parents dropped us off at the airport. 
Picture from the airplane. (I'm easily amused. It's not like you get to see Lake Mead or the Grand Canyon from a plane window everyday, though. I don't, anyway.) 
Gotta do a little gambling as soon as you get to a casino. (See the machine? Penny slots. That's mostly what we played. Pretty crazy, I know.)
Our suite at The Venetian. When we checked in, the guy saw that we were from Alabama and asked Jared which team he's for. Apparently the guy was a big college football fan, and when Jared said we're Bama fans he upgraded our suite for us, lol. Nice way to start the trip! (Roll Tide.)
No, I don't normally wear sunglasses inside but my eye was an incredible mess after the flight.
Some pictures I took while we were walking on the strip the first night.

Since we were gone for 6 days, and I took 2 outfits for each day, plus all the regular vacation pictures - there are a ton. I'll have a few outfit posts with some random Vegas pictures mixed in, but don't worry, you'll mostly be spared from the touristy madness :)

Awesome, can't wait to see more pictures! The big project I'm working on right now (that's keeping me away from the blog) might just have something to do with hotels in Vegas. I've already said too much ;o)
