Our visit with Kirk

This weekend we were lucky enough to spend some time with a friend of mine from Dallas. He was visiting Las Vegas so we met him there. It was so good to catch up with him and share some good food and good times! Here are some pictures from our visit.



Kirk walking down the strip





I can never get this guy to smile for a picture.


I took a few pictures of our hotel too... this place was amazing. It opened on March 1 and I think they were just trying to get people out there so we got a room for very cheap. I don't think we'll ever get that good of a deal there again... but I would definitely go back, especially for the pool (which I didn't get to enjoy because of all the wind)




This was right across from registration... you can't really tell here but the walls had water running down them.




There were two walls made of lilies, they were so neat.





They were real too!



Another view of the lobby... it was all so elegant.




There were complimentary beverage stations throughout the casino.





I didn't get a great picture of the pool because the wind was blowing so hard but it was amazing. I can't wait to go back and lay by it all day long!



A view from the outside. It's so new they are still working on the landscaping.



We got robes and slippers in our room






The bedroom had a window to the bathroom... it was really cool!













If you can't tell... that's a TV in the bathroom mirror.





They even turned down our bed...



And left us mints!!




You can't really tell from this but we had a great view of the strip.
The place was really high-tech... they had blinds for the window that would go up and down with just the touch of a button. Also the lights in the room were all controlled by sticking your room key in a little slot. Once you took the key out the lights would go off within a couple of minutes. Even the "Do Not Disturb" sign was electric. The pictures really don't do this place justice.. it was really incredible. The name of the hotel is "M". I would recommend it to anyone... I am just not sure it will be very affordable for long.

Okay, first of all....smokin' hot pics of you! You look fabulous! And the hotel looks awesome. Thanks for the info. We're thinking of possibly going that way for our anniversary.

Wow Candi.. you look amazing (you suck) and it made me smile to see Kirk again. I bet you had a blast with him... he is hilarious! That room looks like so much fun!

Jess has basically been living at the M for the last few months. He will love to hear that you stayed there and liked it. If you were there on a week day, you might have even crossed paths. He will still be there a couple more weeks finishing up the last few things.
