I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend! This week, I will be only posting about my big sweepstakes win. My husband and I got back late last night from our trip to Las Vegas, and we have a great time! Yes, I actually won this trip to Vegas to meet the UFC fighters and see the UFC fight 146. It was an experience that my husband and I will never forget. We received total VIP treatment all the way! And we even got some “free time” to sight-see for most of the day on Saturday (which we spent on the strip, of course)!
Friday started out with us getting up at 5am and heading to the airport for a 9:14am flight to Charlotte, NC (and this was my first flight ever….totally thought the plane would be bigger than what it was and very thankful I got to sit next to my husband on all flights). We had a 45 minute layover, then caught the next flight to Las Vegas which had us landing around 12:30 (ish), Pacific time. Yes, that is a 3 hour time change….we were exhausted by the time we went to bed Friday night. We spent most of that first day at our hotel (lots to see there anyway as we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino). Friday night, we were transported to Mandalay Bay and taken straight to the top floor for a private party for some of the fighters. My husband is a big fan of the UFC, so he was really excited about meeting some of these guys. I’ve not uploaded all of my pictures yet, but here are a couple taken on my cell:
How did I win this trip? And what, exactly, did it include? Check out this post. Come back on Wednesday for a look at what we did on Saturday!
