Viva Las Vegas!

Our very own Miss Arkansas, Alyse Eady, gave us every reason to go to a little town called LAS VEGAS! So me and two of my best friends packed up fancy duds that glittered and shimmered then headed to the city that literally never sleeps.

Not only did we get to see all the shopping, casinos, and crazy people  Vegas offered, we got to go and support our EEE sister in the 2011 Miss America pageant. So here are a few highlights of our weekend.

We got the privilege of staying at the hotel Bellagio! I highly recommend this place. It was absolutely incredible and we stayed on the 11th floor facing the amazing fountains. It was incredible! 
Erica and Joy
When we first arrived at the airport and our town car limo
was awaiting us. We felt a little bit special to say the least!
The guy quickly gave us a list of do's and don'ts while we stay. 

View from our hotel window of the strip and fountains.
It was glamorous!
"Lady Chocolate" was in our hotel. I wish she would have fit in my suitcase.
So during the day we spent all our time going into all of the hotels to see the special attraction in each one. We also did our fair share of the amazing shopping and eating! And YES we walked everywhere but ate everything! It cancelled out :)
Inside the Venetian. If I was to pick the most romantic hotel, this would win gold. The river ran through the entire length of the hotel and the guys steering the boat would sing these sweet love songs in Italian. In some parts of the day the hotel the ceiling was painted like a sunny day day in Paris the other half was Paris at sunset. 
The sunny day. There was lots of little bistro restaurants, accompanied by the best shopping in the Venetian.
First day of shopping down the strip. This was outside of Cesar's Palace.
The fire/lava show outside the Mirage Hotel
You could eat in the top of Eiffel Tower
Some of the moving statues and show inside of Cesar's Palace Hotel and casino.

Second day of shopping. Outside of a much needed Starbucks. Our feel were dying and we were exhausted.
The biggest H&M ever! Manicans were hanging from ceilings everywhere and it was 3 stories.
Inside our hotel room about to headed out for dinner
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum! It was fun but kind
of creep to see all the celebrities! They look so real!

Since she is my favorite Actress of all time
I got a little excited to see Cameron Diaz!

The only picture from the pageant just to prove we were THERE!

 That was just a few of the hundreds of pictures from our trip! The only sad part was we couldn't take our cameras into the actual Miss America pageant! Well we snuck them into our dresses but couldn't take "flash photography" cause it was live television. So we snapped one very quickly at the end. How many times in your life do you get to go to Miss America?! So we couldn't take any of the beautiful girls on stage in Planet Hollywood or of Alyse but she was absolutely stunning and represented the State of Arkansas so well. We thought she won the won the thing but came into a VERY close 1st runner up. Talk about on the edge of your seat and leaving with no voice!!

It was one of the best trips ever! Congratulations to Miss Alyse Eady once again!

With glitter still coming out of my suitcase and tired feet,
