Viva Las Vegas 2014: Friday-Saturday

TpT Vegas 2014
Laura, Paul, Amy and Lisa

From Laura's Point of View:
The name All Y'all Need came about from playing with our first initials - Amy, Laura, and Lisa. All. Amy and Laura are sisters, and Lisa is their cousin. Amy is a librarian, Laura is a speech path, and Lisa teaches Kg.  Lisa's mom, Billie, also went to Vegas. So sometimes we were BALL. And when Amy and Lisa were together, it was AL. Laura and Lisa were LL. And when we met Paul….well, it was ALL with Paul.  We are from Texas, so we must always say y'all.

We all got to Vegas on July 4 along with 329,196 other visitors. The Venetian is wonderful!  I wish Disney would have hotel rooms this big for their prices!

We headed out to the old-school Flamingo to see Olivia Newton-John! Lisa was NOT AT ALL excited.  But, ONJ was a class act - humble, gracious, talented, pretty… We had forgotten some of the country songs she sang.  Please Mr. Please, anyone?

The Strip was a blur of people and fireworks.   Inside a construction tunnel, Billie unintentionally broke up a fight because she reminded the guys of their mothers.

We slept in on Saturday because we are old.   Except for Lisa.

And, this was Celine Dion night! Celine was the whole reason Billie came along. We got dressed up, went to Caesar's Palace, and wondered why the doors weren't open.    Red flag, anyone?

Meanwhile, Amy and Lisa were connecting with Kindergarten Smorgasboard through Insta.  Pretty much forgetting about Celine totally.    Just before showtime, the ushers - followed by security guards - came out to announce the show was canceled. We do not believe Celine was really sick.   We say she pulled a diva move.   She is now and forever Celine Di-OFF!

The fun thing that happened was that Mr. Greg and The Mister wanted to ride The High Roller,  and invited us to tag along.   So, tag we did.   The High Roller is a must-do!

Sunday morning Lisa was talking to Mrs. Balius through Insta.   We set off to meet Mrs. Balius at The Bellagio.    It was my favorite hotel with the flowers and glass art.

Sunday night's show was "Love" - The Beatles, Cirque du Soleil… Billie loved the show. I like it in retrospect, but I felt like it was overwhelming - stuff and people coming from everywhere. My favorite scene was "Something".

Afterwards, we went to The Cosmopolitan and walked around (fancy schmancy).  When we left, there was a girl outside in a headdress, pasties, a thong, and heels. So sad. I thought about the Colin Raye song "I Think About You" often.

Next up - the SDE conferences and more fangirl sightings!
