Happy 50th Birthday, Greg! {Las Vegas}

Our trip started with a 6:00 AM flight to Las Vegas to celebrate our BFFs Greg's 50th birthday soirée. I still cannot believe we are celebrating 50. Wow! Greg's birthday was on July 3rd.

J & I and 12 of our best buds stayed at the gorgeous Aria resort. The views we're beautiful, and the amenities even better. Aria is by far one of the nicest places I've stayed in Vegas. There was not that usual "cheese" factor.

Casey, Tom, Jeff, and I began each morning with daily coffee tawk in the VIP lounge. Complimentary drinks and breakfast were served. We love our coffee tawks.

We spent three days in our luxurious cabana where our own server delivered libation after libation and delicious foods. It was a life of luxury that I can get used to. It also helps that our besties are world class gamblers who love to share the lifestyle with us.

We spent a lot of time in the pool due to the fact that temperatures exceeded 100 degrees each day.

For lunch, we dined poolside in our cabana. The food was yummy. I can say that I devoured a perfectly cooked burger each day. 
In the evenings, we dined at a couple of Vegas' hotspots: FIX at Bellagio and Sirio at Aria.

I really enjoyed my $25.00 premium margarita at FIX.

We were also fortunate to see one of my all-time favorites, Olivia Newton John at The Flamingo. Yes! She dazzled with her top songs from Xanadu and Grease. She is still gorgeous and sings so well sans autotune. Lol! She is definitely still "hopelessly devoted to you".

We all also had a fun time dancing the night away at a newish club, Liason. Lance Bass of N'Sync fame was also in the crowd.

We had a great time in Vegas celebrating our besties 50th! We LOVE you, Greg!

We also enjoyed our final Vegas nightcap at Lobby Bar. Cheers. 

On day four, we boarded a jet plane for Grand Junction, CO. Stay tuned!

Greg is 50, y'all!


  1. Looks like a blast! Y'all know how to celebrate turning 50!

  2. Now that's how you celebrate a 50th birthday! It looks like a lot of fun was had by everyone, Ron. I kept my 50th on the quiet side. It looks like a great place to stay, too.

  3. Looks like you all had a blast together. You get the award for best tan and legs! LOL...

  4. Good morning, Ron! Let me first extend a belated 50th birthday to Greg! I agree with paperjunk that y'all really know how to celebrate a special birthday in style--a cabana with your personal server, but I wouldn't have expected anything different! G's cake is beautiful, and I sure hope that you enjoyed that $25 margarita--I would have sipped it VERY slowly! ;) Have a great day! xoxo

  5. What a fun way to celebrate turning 50!! Enjoy the next part of your trip Ron!

  6. This looks like a great way to turn 50! Loved the pics you all were having such a great time. My one trip there was amazing and lots of fun. I'm not a gambler but enjoyed the lights and people watching for sure. Big Hugs to you and your bestie! Fun trip!


  7. Ron, It looks like you have wonderful (and a little crazy) friends.. LOL! J and you take some wonderful trips and seem to have such a fun time. Happy Birthday to Greg.

  8. Happy birthday Ron, it's a beautiful decade, although you don't look a day older than 41! I'm so glad you went to Vegas, what a great place to celebrate with fun and crazy friends!

  9. Happy Birthday to your friend Greg! My husband just turned 50 in June and mine is coming up in Oct. Your friend celebrated in style! Looks like y'all had a great time together. Love his cute cake.

  10. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GREG! What a fun time. And no mention of any Hangovers ;)

  11. You guys had WAAAAAY too much fun! Happy Birthday to Greg.

  12. Was the Margarita worth the price?

  13. That margarita! Whoo hoo! What a fabulous time.

  14. 50's the new 40. No, 30. No, I'd say around 42. Happy sort of 42 to Greg!

  15. Welcome to Fabulous at 50 Las Vegas! Celebrating with friends in style is the only way to turn 50. I am thrilled to read a glowing review of Olivia Newton John's show at Flamingo. I love seeing a show in the Flamingo showroom- I like a little vintage in my Vegas. Glad you and J had fun in Vegas, and I'm looking forward to "visiting" Colorado with you both. Great trip report!
