Gaga in Vegas

A few weeks ago at the end of January, I fly to Las Vegas for the weekend with Kevin to meet up with my parents. We were only there for less than 48 hours so we had a jam-packed weekend of activities. Kev and I stayed at the Encore in Wynn because it’s nice but also because we wanted to go to the Encore which is our favorite spa.

We landed in Vegas on Friday night and had one night cap with my parents. We had an appointment at the Encore spa bright and early the next morning. We had an amazing, relaxing time. Not only was the massage great it was also nice having my mom there so I had some company while soaking in the Jacuzzi pool. It was also just as rewarding to see how much my mom enjoyed the whole experience.

My mom hamin’ it up

On Saturday night we saw Lady Gage perform at her Enigma tour. That was the main reason we went to Vegas–I bought my mom the concert tickets as a Christmas/Mother’s Day gift. We were general admission but there were seriously the best standing seats in the house because we were so close. Lady Gaga is such an amazing performer and she’s just as good live as on her album or on TV. I feel especially lucky to have gone to her show on that particular night because Bradley Cooper was there and he went on stage at the end to perform “Shallows” with her!!!

On Sunday morning we slept in, had lunch, then walked around for a bit before Kev and I headed to the airport to fly back to NYC. I’m not a huge fan of Vegas because I’m not a gambler and I hate the smell of cigarette smoke, but it is definitely fun for a weekend. I was there for the right amount of time and it was nice catching up with my parents.
