Our Honeymoon!

I was browsing some of my old posts on this blog, and I realized...I never shared my honeymoon pictures! Unfortunately, our (then) camera broke the night before we headed to Vegas, so all the pictures I have are with my IPhone. You know what they say, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas". Needless to say, we had an awesome time, and got to do so many fun and relaxing things. I wanted to share a few with you...In no particular order...

We stayed at the ARIA, which is absolutely gorgeous!!! Thanks to a certain persuasive blonde, we were able to slip the check-in desk worker $25 bucks, which upgraded us from a deluxe room to a corner suite!! It was like an beautiful and spacious. One Bedroom, two bathrooms, dining area, living room and kitchenette.

Jon and I saw two shows: The Beatles Love Cirque Du Soleil, and The Holly Madison Peep-Show. We really enjoyed both shows, and recommend them!

We also ate some of the most wonderful food on our trip. Our favorites were: Olives @ Bellagio, Jean George Steakhouse @ Aria, Jean-Phillipe Patisserie @ Aria, and The Pub @ Monte Carlo. Below, you'll see a picture of the best onion rings on the planet...

It seemed like everywhere we went, nearly every bar and restaurant had the same house drink...The Bloody Mary. They like to make them super spicy with hot peppers...My favorite was at Olives inside the Bellagio. Jon and I sat on the patio overlooking the famous Bellagio was amazing!

To appease Jon, we spent one night at Club Haze @ The Aria. It was loud, hot, but we had a blast dancing the night away. 

Before I sum this post up, I have to tell you about the most incredible spa that Jon and I went to. Hotel Aria sells wristbands for $30, which gives you one-day access to their spa. We relaxed on hot coals, swam in warm salt water pools, napped in a room made entirely of salt (helps to clear your sinuses), and steamed in the eucalyptus steam rooms. It was THE most relaxing thing I've ever done. We loved it so much we spent nearly an entire day there...and wished we had gone back for another day.

We are both SO appreciative to Jon's mother, who payed for our honeymoon!! Is if that in itself weren't absolutely amazing, she also watched Riley while we were gone and cleaned our house top to bottom! She is so generous, and we are so very grateful!
