After that, we headed out to shop a little bit before lunch. BFF got a work phone call, so while she was handling that, I wondered around the fancy shops. I went to Fendi and looked at a diamond and white ceramic watch. It looked good on me, so I asked how much it was. $1,895. Hmmm...I will put that on my wish list. She then showed me one with MORE diamonds and I told her that I like things a little more simple. So, she showed me a slightly smaller version with no diamonds which I actually like the best. She said that it was only $895. After the $1,895, it seems so reasonable until I realized that I'm NOT RICH and I needed to get the hell out of there. Whew.
However, I did stop and take a look at Tiffany. For those of you that have read my blog from the beginning (so sorry!), you might remember that I rewarded myself with a Tiffany key necklace for successfully kickstarting my fitness regime. I went to a personal trainer, started running, & went to Jazzercise for 8 weeks. It was a big deal at the time and I wanted big incentive. Recently, they have come out with locks as well. I found out that the lock that I wanted was $80. I decided that would be my momento from Vegas.
By then, it was time for lunch and we met the other girls at Olives at the Bellagio. The food was good, but I don't remember what I had and the waiter was kind of an ass. I was disappointed because I think it is an EXCELLENT restaurant. I would definitely try it again. The tapenade alone was worth a repeat trip!
After lunch, it was time to head to Jazz on the Strip for the taping. A few time a year, Jazzercise instructors (like BFF & a couple of other girls that were with us) get instructional videos with new routines. This was a live taping of one of those events. We were warned that it could last up to 4 hours, so we prepared for a Jazzercise-athon. After the first hour, I realized that I could work out so much better on carpet (it was in a hotel ballroom.) My feet barely hurt and I was absolutely ready to keep going. They only had to restart taping a couple of times, so we ended after 2.5 hours. I thought it was fantastic and I'm looking forward to doing some of the new routines when they come out next month.
After Jazzing, we went to the Burger Joint at the Flamingo for dinner. We put on dry clothes but we were exhausted and feeling kind sore, so we didn't want anything fancy. Plus, we knew we had to get up the next day and do even more!
After dinner, we briefly played some slots, then retired for the night.
