What I'm Packing for Vegas

If you haven't noticed, Hottie Scottie and I love Vegas.  The first few times we went I packed so many clothes.  I mean so many clothes that it looked like I was moving there.  Over the trips, though, I've learned how to consolidate outfits and re-use.  My goal for this trip was to just take a carry-on but with all of the airline rules for hair care/make-up products we will have to check a bag.

Anyway, I should say that when we go to Vegas we do not go clubbing.  As a matter of fact, I have not been to one single club while in Vegas.  Sure, there are a couple that I'd like to go to just to say that I've been but I have no desire to pay a ridiculous cover charge, wait out in a huge line to be picked to come in, and then pay upwards of $10 for a drink.  It's just not my thing.  In my younger days you can bet that I would have been all over it.  LOL

Having said that, none of the clothes I'm taking are over-the-top or club-worthy.

We have got our trips down to a science.  We get in early Friday afternoon and fly out late Sunday night.  So I need 4 to 5 outfits in that time period.

Clearly, I still need iron.

I am also taking a pair of jeans "just-in-case".  I figure anything that I need and I don't have then that will just give me an excuse to go shopping.  Woohoo!

I always try to carry larger purses so that I can bring along an extra pair of shoes.  My friend, Janice, thinks that is hilarious but if you have ever walked the Las Vegas Strip in 3 1/2 inch heels then you understand the need for a spare pair.

I know a few people have commented on how often we go out to Vegas, look for a post on "How to stay in Vegas for free" very soon.
