We got into Vegas at about 11am, grabbed a quick bite, and headed over to the Las Vegas Convention Center to shop the first of three Cowboy Christmases. We managed to make it through the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Sands Convention Center, on Sunday Afternoon. Kelsey was just amazed with all the wonderful goodies: cowboy hats, halters, handmade saddles, bridles, bits, clothing, clothing, clothing and more clothing; jewelry, jewelry, jewelry and more jewelry; homegoods, tables, cowhide rugs, and everything else you could ever think of needing for a western ranch house. Oh, and let’s don’t forget the horse trailers. Loads of beautiful aluminum horse trailers with living quarters, complete with copper sinks, leather walls, leather couches, hardwood floors, granite countertops, flat-screen tvs and fireplaces. Some of those trailers cost more than our house- and would have to be pulled with a hot-shot truck that also cost more than our house. Fun to look at. Not so practical unless you’re rich, have a rich uncle, or Bloomer Trailer Company just wants to bestow their goodness upon you.
We were able to get to our room and get checked in at around 6:30. Going with the IAC conference is always fun because you get to use VIP check-in. Instead of waiting in line behind 30 people, you wait in line behind 2. Much better. They gave us a king suite with a view of the strip. And not just of the strip, but of the Bellagio Fountains. Our room was retro cool and included marble desk countertops, curtains that ran on a button, a brown velvet couch with pink velvet pillows, retro striped wall-paper, frosted glass walls in the bathroom, complete with a back-light that was…wait for it…pink. I mean we are at the Flamingo vegas right? We had three flat screen TVs, including one that was built into the mirror in the bathroom. Yes, you heard that right. Built into the mirror. How cool is that?
Here’s the pictures of our room and of the view. Enjoy!
