Last weekend, two tired mamas sought R&R in sin city, Las Vegas.

Among the party goers and night crawlers, the two of us had an unconventional (and un-sinful) kind of fun.

What happens in Vegas...we pretty much defied that lingo by doing what overworked mamas do -- chilling, relaxing, and conducting girl talk.

See? You don't need a lot of booze and hard partying for a good time -- and our good time included:

Staying at the beautiful and modern Aria Hotel and Resort.
Can't say enough good things about it.

Aria at night.

A view of the mountain from our room

Spending Saturday morning at the luxurious Wynn Encore spa

Inside the gorgeous Encore.

Getting (un)dressed for a good time

Lounging after time in the sauna

 Spending the afternoon at Elements Salon and Spa

See the excitement on my face? Massage and facial time!

Attending a fabulous show at night

Please excuse my after-facial blotch

Chowing down delicious food

My gourmet -- and highly decorated -- burger

J's savory ahi

Sharing a creamy Nepolian

Walking around the strip

Miss the sun already

Taking a detour at Caesar's palace

And last but not least, spending time at H & M

Hmm...this season's Grandpa blazer looks awfully tempting.

Sure we dented our bank accounts, but it was worth every penny.

When was the last time you went on an R & R with your girlfriend(s)?


  1. Wow it seems you had an amazing time there! I'm so jelous! I have never been in a R&R with my girl friends, but I'd more than love to!

  2. Seems like you had a great time and a well deserved break :-) Your hotel looks amazing.
    I haven't been on a trip like that with my friends for years!

    Chic 'n Cheap Living

  9. That is my idea of a good weekend too!!! It makes me want to take a weekend of R&R soon!

  10. Looks fun! I have a soft spot for Vegas since I was married there. Come to think of it I haven't been on a trip with my girl friends since I've been married.

  11. The burger looks yummy. I've always wanted to visit vegas so thank you for these pictures. The last time I went on an R&R with my best friend has to be early november, when she came to London. xo


  12. Seems like everyone is going to vegas! My parents are there right now and so are my in laws. Looks like you had fun! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog!

  13. vegas is my dream destination- looks like u had a fabulous time!

  14. Sounds like such a good time! I haven't had a tame Vegas trip yet... I think I'm still in a phase where I need to drink till my liver hates me in Vegas!

  15. Glad you had an awesome time. That's what its all about. I stayed at The Venetian when I went in April.

  16. You had so much fun in Vegas, I love the spa idea.

    I am going next week!!

    Can't wait.



  17. Aria looks like a beuatiful hotel. I would like to stay there one day, or even at Cosmopolitan but it's too expensive for me.

    So far, I have only stayed at Paris and Treasure Island.

    Your Vegas trip looks relaxing. I have only gone to party and have always needed a couple days to recover when I get home.
