Valentine's Day in Vegas!!

Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Well, before anything gets said about my weekend in Vegas, I just want to point out that the Judge Girls' swim team won the 3A State Championships and the boys team took fourth, a mere 32 points behind first place! It was a great meet and I am so glad I got to be a part of it again!! Moving on.....Vegas was wonderful, as always and it was fabulous seeing Jeff again. Before I left, I used the gift certificate Jeff had given me for Christmas to the Avenues Day Spa and was rejuvenated by the time I got to Vegas. We stayed at the Monte Carlo this time which was nice because we were right on the strip. Our view was of all of the construction that is going on, but we saw gorgeous sunsets since we were facing west. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel, we walked the strip back and forth at least twice a day and shoped and gambled. Last time, we only played at Treasure Island and we both one. This time, we started playing at TI, then Jeff wanted to play at a different hotel (even though I told him that it wouldn't work) so we both played at Mandalay Bay where we both lost. Not cool. So we retreated to TI, our favorite place to play so far. Once back to TI, we both won thus proving that I was right. On Valentine's night, we went and ate sushi at Caesar's Palace at a restaurant called Hyakumi. It was really good! We ordered a California roll, Yellowtail roll, and a Spicy Tuna roll and all three were heavenly!! To drink, I got an apple martini and it was so delicious I wanted to get another one, but decided not to! We went to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the MIrage and saw gorgeous dolphins, this darling baby tiger, white tigers, and lions. Other than that, we just hung out, saw the water show at the Bellagio about 10 times, and enjoyed each others' company! Now, it's only about three and a half weeks until spring break when who knows what I'll be up to!

Io e Jeff ci siamo divertiti molto a Las Vegas! Siamo stati al Monte Carlo che era bello perche' e' in mezzo alla Strip. Siamo andati a giocare a blackjack al Treasure Island due volte e abbiamo vinto tutte due le volte. Siamo andati a vedere i delfini al Mirage dove c'era anche una tigre che era appena nata. Per San Valentino, siamo andati a mangiare sushi al Caesar's Palace in un ristorante che si chiama Hyakumi. Io ho preso da bere un apple martini che erano favoloso! Poi, da mangiare abbiamo preso un California roll, Yellowtail roll, e un Spicy Tuna roll che era buonissimi!!! Adesso, dobiamo solo aspettare tre settimane per spring break (quando vedro' Jeff ancora) e non si sa ancora cosa faro'!!!!!
