What Happens in Vegas (Part 1)

One of the most amazing parts of our Vegas vacation was not documented in pictures.  Sunday morning, Ashley and I went for massages at the spa in our hotel.  She found a great deal on Groupon and set it up for us ahead of time.  We both had been looking forward to it and really deserved to be pampered.  It was a very peaceful and tranquil experience.  We hit the steam room and lounge prior to our massages and soaked it the hot tub after to take advantage of the amenities.  The massage was wonderful- it really helped me relax and my feet felt so much better afterwards.  After the spa experience, we went back to our rooms to get ready to meet the boys for lunch.

For lunch, we headed to China Poblano at The Cosmopolitan.  This place was cool for multiple reasons.  First, it's a combination of two of my favorite types of food- Chinese and Mexican.  Second, everything was served as small plates, so we could try lots of things and we did!  For cocktails, Ashley and I tried the Blood Orange Margaritas, which were amazing.  From the Chinese part of the menu, we ordered When Pigs Fly (pork buns), potstickers, fried spring rolls, Sui Mai, and another dish.  From the Mexican part, we ordered a taco, queso, and empanadas. I loved the spring rolls, empanadas and pork buns.  The pork buns were something new for me and I'm glad I got to try them.  Everything was delicious and we left feeling very full.
