Back to Britain!

Well I hitched a lift from Vegas and arrived home yesterday just in time to celebrate my birthday!
I started my celebrations in the airport when it was 12am UK time & was given some cards from friends...
I loved Vegas and am already planning a trip to take my mum there. I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it not being a gambler (this photo is staged!).
The attention to detail of each hotel/casino was amazing, look at the Venetian,
A canal INSIDE a hotel!
I LOVED the Paris hotel of course and brought some lovely Parisenne pieces which I will show you in a later post.
We stayed at the Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino Resort and I know you should try somewhere new on any return visits but I'd happily return there. It was smaller than many of the other casinos and we have a lovely room and the location was perfect.
Some of the more opulent hotels were lovely but I'm a simple girl with simple tastes... we did sample the Bellagio breakfast buffet though!
As well as 28oz Prime Rib!
(Vegetarians look away now!)
And here are just a few other photos taken through the trip,
I got the great idea from Suzanne Duda at Pink Roses to do a journal whilst in Vegas (you can read about hers here)... I brought the journals, photo corners and so on for my friends for Easter so we could all complete them on our trip.
Unfortunately my friend Kelly & I never found the time or energy to complete ours but our friend Barry who dare I say as a "boy" we thought wouldn't embrace the idea completed his religiously and it looked fantastic so had to share it with you!
It's great to be home to nice weather as it snowed whilst I was away. The poor people on the flight a day before ours were delayed 9 hours because of the weather, that's on top of the 10.5 hour flight!
Now I have 191 posts on google reader to get through and lot's of post's to prepare for you as I have lot's to show and tell!
Hope I wasn't one of them people that has bored everyone with her holiday photos!

Wow Victoria, what an amazing place, it's lovely to see all your photos, I don't imagine I'll ever go there. Happy (belated) birthday wishes to you.

Looks like you had a fun trip! We stayed at the Luxor - wouldn't do that again. My favorite was the Paris too - so French!!
