Sunday morning I flew to Vegas for the big annual commercial real estate conference. I go every year but last year I was too pregnant ha!  

A bunch of us from our company went so it was so fun hanging out with them (because we never see each other...we are all always on the road) and seeing our friends in the business that are our clients too!

View from my 51st floor hotel room at Elara.  We stay there because it's a Hilton property so we can get points, plus there's no casino so it's easier to deal with.  

Landed around 1pm local time and checked in the jetted off to see my friend Jodie who used to be our client.  We've traveled many of miles together.  It was awesome to catch up with her!  We met at the Wynn parasol bar.  Dirty gin martini was calling my name.  

Still at the Wynn we went over to our client dinner at Costa Di Mare.  

Cocktail hour overlooked this pool and we had a fancy dinner just inside but with open doors to this view.  It was amazing food and great company!

All of us from our company went out afterwards to Mandalay Bay.  Well first Laura and I went to an engineers (one we use) party at the pool at Hard Rock.  Then met up with everyone else at Mandalay.  Got to my room at 12:30a which felt like 3:30a to me ha!!  Yikes. 

I was up at 4:30 (my body was still on east coast time) ready for a morning of meetings. So we did those then headed to the pool for a few.  As in like 30 min.

Then, sushi samba with our GC that we love so much!  Five cucumber martinis later for some, I only had two drinks and too much amazing food, we rolled out of there. 

Sea bass...omg so good. 

Ken had booked this ride back to his hotel so we jumped in with him and Laura and I went to one of our clients happy hour.  

Good times at the happy hour socializing. Then I met up with coworkers at Giada's restaurant. It was amazing!!!!!

First, a glass of rose from the bar while our table was getting ready. 

Ridiculous food again. 

A huge pepper mill. 


I got surf and turf. Check out that bacon!

I got up again at the crack of dawn yesterday morning and flew to Salt Lake City for a final walk through on a building I built there.  I was there for five hours checking on some other sites then flew back to Charlotte. Landed just before midnight.  This morning came early but I was glad to be home!!!!  Tmw I'm off for another escapade!  Busy busy. Chat soon!!!
