part deux...

finally, i was able to get some photos to transfer from my phone to my computer. with that said, i have to tell you my new favorite is the WYNN and ENCORE too! the WYNN reminds me of a modern BELLAGIO. the pictures pretty much speak for themselves...enjoy!

speaking of the ROYAL WEDDING, i couldn't help but take a few photos of these amazing wedding cakes on display at a bakery as you entered the WYNN. i can only imagine what the cost is for one of these cakes, lol!

if you love butterflies, you'll love the WYNN! the butterfly motif can be found all over, on the ceilings and even the tiles on the floor!
i couldn't help but be attracted to all the beautiful drapery and how about those beautiful sconces!

plenty of fabulous places to shop!
check out the drapes, sofa and pillows.....loving the RED!

looking out at the waterfalls...

so much to see and do, especially at the WYNN and ENCORE! not to mention the beautiful beach clubs, wish i took a few photos. here's one from the outside of ENCORE:

next time i definitely want to stay over at the WYNN!

sorry, i don't have time to separate the photos between what were taken at the WYNN and those that were taken over at ENCORE.

a room with a view...

sorry for the delay in posting photos from our trip to vegas. NEVER again will i forget my camera, ugh! it's been a pain in the a$$ trying to download photos from my phone.

oh well, let's start with a view of the strip from our balcony. we ended up getting upgraded to the palms place. amazing how much has changed in vegas since my last visit about 6 years ago!
below are a couple of morning views:
notice the lights were still on in the photo below, lol! not sure what time i was up when this was taken? ha! ha!
here's a view from inside our room:

two televisions...still trying to understand the reason behind this? sports?!?! ha! ha!
kitchen area, clearly not needed in vegas! lol! at least not for us anyway! ha! ha!
yes, i am a sucker for photos. so below are some photos of the bathroom. ha! ha!

finally, here's a view of the pool over at the palms place:

check back later for some more photos. we had a fabulous time! couldn't ask for better weather, a little on the cool side in the morning and evening but the afternoons were PERFECT! i even managed to get a little color, ha! ha! not as much as i wanted, but there was so much to see and do! ha! ha!

heading home...

hope you all had a wonderful easter!

we ended up attending mass at a catholic church next to encore and the wynn. couldn't image not going to church on easter. i am episcoplian, my husband is catholic so it worked out.

we are currently sitting at the airport, passing time until our flight back to chicago. las vegas was a lot of fun, but i'm ready to head back home. 5 days is one too many in my eyes, lol! hopefully the weather in chicago is nice????

oh well, can't wait to share photos from our trip. seems like i am always forgetting something! this time i forgot my camera, thank god for my cell phone! ha! ha!

drats, can't seem to load a photo from my phone. guess i'll have to wait until we get home. check back later!
