why yes, yes there is :lol:
alright, i'm giving the blog-as-i-go thing a try for a few days- i have a ton of pics, but some of them are in my phone, and some in my camera. and guess who left their camera usb adapter at home? i always forget one thing when i travel, and well, this time it's that darn cord. SO, instead of waiting until i get home and doing one big post like i normally do, i'm bloggin' what i got so far minus a few camera pics. Chiso's taking a nap and i'm bored.
we are in the fabulous Las Vegas, NV for Musclemania Fitness AmericaWeekend - Sonny is competing in his last show of the year!
Chiso was NOT feeling his first plane ride. i'm hoping and praying the return flight is a million times better. our plane touched down around midnight, and after getting our luggage, renting a car, etc., we finally made it to our hotel, tired & hoongry.
Matt & Sonny had an after-the-club breakfast in the hotel cafe,
and they brought mine up to the room since Chiso needed to be put down for bed immediately. i had whole wheat toast, egg whites, hash browns, and the saltiest piece of ham on earth :shock:
energized after some much needed rest, we were ready to get into something the next day. while Sonny attended meetings, waited in super long lines (he's somewhere under that water slide)
does media interviews, take pics and all that jazz,
Chiso, uncle Thew,
hit the strip!
i justified our Whole Foods trip by scoping out the room service menu for kicks like i always do and ummmmm..... half a grapefruit for 3.75? only in vegas.
1st up, we fueled up for all the walking we were about to do!
of course i had a sandwich.
whole wheat, grilled chicken, avocado, tomato, cucumbers, mushrooms, provolone cheese, and stone ground mustard, pressed. classic!
let the walking begin!
we saw the famous welcome to las Vegas sign, the m&m store, the underground forum shoppes in Caesars Palace, fashion show mall... the usual, lol! we also stopped at The Bellagio to catch the water show and have dessert.
Chi watched and sat still like a big boy for the entire performance. he deserved a standing ovation from Mommy!
or some sugar-free strawberry gelato, that works too.
Matt got a 3 layer mini cheesecake that was so creamy.
oh just eat it already.
after more walking, we headed back to the hotel for dinner @ The Grotto.
no idea what kinda bread this was but it was so moist and chewy on the inside, and crunchy on the outside.
and i got the seared ahi tuna with grilled red potatoes, asparagus, french green beans, red & yellow tomatoes, and a boiled egg. the host hotel restaurants have special menus just for fitness america weekend, and i ordered from that since i knew it would be super clean and healthy. even still, most restaurants will accommodate your requests (omit oil, butter, dressing on the side, etc.) if you just ASK!
aaand i ended the day with a bed time snack that Sonny can't have yet-
ok that went fairly well- i'll try again during the next nap.
