I have NO words.....

S&!T People Say to Me

I am starting a new type of post. It's 'S&!T People Say'. I over hear a lot of things, especially in my line of work. Very random, random things. These will completely be taken out of context. I love it!

Just the Right Amount of Wrong

Remember this commercial:

The $3.9 billion Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is Las Vegas’ newest casino/resort. It features a 100,000-square-foot casino, 2,995 rooms, 36,000 square feet of shops, 10 restaurants and a buffet, the Marquee nightclub, a 43,000-square-foot spa and three pools.

Ryan and I just got back from Vegas. Our Disneyland. We gambled....played poker (seen some poker stars btw), gambled more, ate, gambled. You see where we are heading.

Our highlight of the trip was to visit The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. And how did they blow through $3.9 billion? Oh... on CHANDELIERS! They were everywhere. Even in bathrooms. I hate using the term "sexy", but that is exactly what this casino The center piece of the casino is this breathtaking three story chandelier. The chandelier, which took about a year to complete, combines more than 2 million crystal beads and three bars within a 10,000-square-foot space. The 65-foot tall fixture is made up of large crystal curtains combining layers of string that work to create a semitransparent skin around the interior. Like I said.....just the right amount of wrong.

Enjoy a tour of the Cosmopolitan through this photo gallery:

The lobby. Two story high video pillars that greet people.

The AMAZING chandelier.

Next time you are in Vegas.....stop by The Cosmopolitan, Aria and Wynn/Encore. These properties will blow your socks off!

Summer Cruise ~ The Epic

My mom, invited me on this amazing cruise this late summer. We also tagged along with step grandma Shirley and her daughter, Marie. This was my 2nd cruise. This truly was an amazing trip. The ship alone was worth every penny. I am just amazed on how this ginormous ship can stay afloat (I leave the engineering to the hubby). We set sail from Miami and our ports were St. Maartins, St. Thomas and Nassau, Bahamas.

The Ship ~ NCL's Epic

Epic is an understatement. This ship was massive. It is one of the largest at sea. It made it's maiden vogue just two months before we set sail.

Overall Length: 1,080 ft / 329.5 m
Guests: 4,100 (double occupancy)
Cruise Speed: 22 knots

The ship featured 20 restaurants ( of them was teppinaki), 3 water slides, an Ice bar, Blue Man Group, Cirque Show, Legions in Concert, Casino, rock wall, bowling and other activities. It even had an escalator and the largest chandelier at sea!

Here are a few photos that I stole off the net of the ship.

What our cabin looked like. Super roomy! Huge balcony.

Here are my photos of the trip....

Us in St. Maartin. It was the first day on land in 3 days. From left to right: Grandma Shirley, my Mom, Jill, Me, and Marie. The first stop in St. Maartin...we took a submarine to the reef and saw tons of fish and jelly fish. We also saw starfish and even a few turtles! St. Maartin is half Dutch and half French.

Our ship is St. Maartin.

What I woke up to....the first day of LAND. I NEEDED to get off ASAP!

I coxed my mom into eating sushi. Well, got her drunk first, then talked her into eating sushi for the first time. First stop was to teach her how to use chopsticks. She was happy when she was able to pick something up.

She looks terrified to eat the sushi. I started her off on Cali roll, Shrimp Tempura, and Spicy Tuna. For it being aboard a cruise was quite tasty and fresh!

Baby stingrays at Atlantis in Bahama's.

Saw Shark at Atlantis in Bahama's.

Atlantis in Bahama's. It was AMAZING there.

Amazing glass installations around Atlantis.

My mom and I on the beach in St. Thomas. MY FAVORITE part of the trip. Well the food was right up there....but this beach was amazing!

See how crystal clear the water is. I snorkeled. Yes, I snorkeled and LOVED it. (Remember this blog: Jamaica freak out moment). I feed the fish dog bones. There was hundreds of fish and just a beautiful day. Water was perfect. I swam and snorkeled for hours. Even seen barracuda fish and didn't freak out.

Iguanas around St. Thomas.

Ice Bar fun!!! Yes, the entire bar was made of ice. It was freezing....I had no socks or pants for that matter.

We had one major snag coming home. Our plane was delayed 7.5 hours. OMG! Sitting in a Ft. Lauderdale airport for that length of time....when you are tired and unburnt and just want to get home. Poor Grandma S. She was super sick. Plus, when we arrived in Phoenix, they had another 2 hour ride home. They didn't get there until 4:30. We were all up for 26 hours.

We all had a wonderful time. Even after the delay. It was great time to spend with my mom. I was very lucky I got this great opportunity!

Oh, and I got to knock off tons off my 101 list!
