Vegas Style

Scott and I just returned home from a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. It was Scott's very first time visiting Vegas, and I was so excited to experience all of the magic that is the strip with him. Since we're not the drinking or gambling type, we spent our days walking around the strip sipping hot coffees, munching on yummy treats, seeing shows, and enjoying our holiday vacation together.

The weather in Las Vegas was pretty similar to ours in Phoenix, but along the strip it felt extra chilly. Since we were doing so much walking in and out of hotels, we found it only appropriate to layer up. I'm always colder than Scott is, so my layers exceeded his, but we were still both so cozy and were ready for an afternoon of exploring.

During our trip, hot coffees were in abundance. If we weren't in need of a drink to warm us up, we were needing an extra caffeine kick to boost us up and keep us going through the night. Since Illy espresso was everywhere in Vegas, it was usually what were drinking. When I was in Europe a few years ago Illy was everywhere as well and quickly became my favorite!

I picked up this cute skinny tie for Scott a few weeks ago. I originally was going to give it to him for Christmas, but I thought he might like to wear it while we were in Vegas. He really likes it and may now be on a tie kick! I am definitely not opposed to this idea!

A sweet couple shot this photo of the two of us. We were standing on this walking overpass where it's common to take photos, so this man asked us if we wanted a photo together. Scott and I may have gotten pushed into take photos of this foreign couple for a good five minutes. It was actually kind of funny.
