Vegas Eats

So, I am still married and my daughter may not be speaking to me. I just experienced what seemed like an hour of yelling at her on a video call. Turns out my sweet daughter did not hear all the angry things that I was yelling until I accidentally un-muted the call.  Note to self: remember when you have muted someone because her show is bugging you while you are trying to blog… Maybe she’ll forgive me after I post this???

After a brief meltdown, a small band-aid for my ego and a sincere apology to my daughter, I am off and blogging. This time I want to check out a few of the websites that talk about different places to eat in Vegas. It seems that Vegas is an exciting place for a twenty something; so, we will give it a whirl. Maybe this 40 something can have some fun too, hahaha.

I am going to check out the following:


China Poblano is a Chinese/Mexican fusion. The chef’s name is José Andrés. The Yelp rating is 3.5 and TripAdvisor rates it a 4. I like both Mexican food and Chinese so a fusion menu sounds delicious. One of the reviews I read mentioned a tasting menu? That sounds like it is right up my hungry alley!


Studio B is at the top of the list on this website for buffets. It is affordable for brunch/lunch during weekdays, according to the author. It is located at M Resort. They will send you 2 or more free buffet coupons every month if you sign up for their players club. There is free beer, a good variety of food, and the author kept emphasizing how affordable it is. We will keep this in mind as we try to stretch our dollar.


Crepe Expectations is a place that serves burgers hahaha. I LOVE CREPES!! This place has both sweet and savory crepes. Google rates it as a 4.7, while Yelp and Trip Advisor rate it a 4.5. This is definitely somewhere that we would visit if we decide to go to Vegas. CREPES!!!!!!

Those Guys Pies is a pizza joint. I really thought it was going to be dessert pies. They rate a 4 on both Trip Advisor and Yelp. I think we could try the Shroom pizza? It has good reviews. The pizza has mushrooms, garlic and goat cheese. You can buy a 14 inch for $17.


Ace Donuts serves really good doughnuts. I looked at the photos and want to go there on one of the mornings while in Vegas. No reviews necessary.

Rosallie is a French cafe. The place scored a 5 on Trip Advisor and Facebook gave it a 4.8.  This place has a variety of coffee, quiches and sandwiches. I happen to love all three. We may have to try this place.

Goodwich is another sandwich place. I really like sandwiches. I don’t know if my daughter will appreciate sandwiches and doughnuts the whole time we are in Vegas.

Mama & Kayla 25th year celebration.

So, this is my second post. I have had to text Kayla a few times to try to figure it out. I finally figured out how to get a picture from my phone to the computer but am not quite sure how I will put it on this computer. I already upset my husband because I became impatient (hysterical) as he patiently tried to help. I think we are getting divorced. I hope that our only follower appreciates this effort.

To celebrate my daughter’s life and our relationship we are going to take a trip. She has listed some possible activities for the trip so here are some of the things that I enjoy doing with my free time are:

  • spending time with my children
  • antiquing
  • thrifting
  • facial time
  • hanging out with my dogs
  • making something beautiful with my hands
  • watching some good TV or cinema
  • enjoying a basketball game (in person)
  • eating something delicious

I would love to go somewhere we can do something we enjoy, something new and exciting, eat great food, and spend time appreciating each other.


When did she grow up?

This has been an adventure so far, phew! Now Kayla is the one with all the answers, hahahaha. She (Kayla) is painstakingly trying to show someone (me) who is negative tech savvy how to use google hangout, create an account on this wordpress business and get motivated to do something outside of my comfort zone.

I long for the days before smart phones. When people just had to wait to see me in person or until I got home to speak to me. Now I am letting the world or the 3 people (including me and Kayla) who have looked at the blog thus far what we are planning. Not sure how I feel about this. This rant is enough for my first time out.

Even though I am complaining, I am looking forward to celebrating my sweet daughter’s life and our relationship. Here is to this quarter century celebration!



First Kayla Post

I am using this blog to document my adventure in finding a place to travel with my mom for my 25th birthday. I want to find a place where we can: relax, have fun, and bond. I am also looking to make it more frugal. ($2000 or less including the flight). I have 8 more months to plan and I’m happy to bring you all along for the journey.

I am also using this to bond with my mom. I want to lessen the miles between us and show others how great family relationships can be.
