well ive gone and done it!

today, 12:04

Some of you may have read my dilemma about booking a deal when the SO was out of work. I held off until after I had finished my exams, thankfully she has got a new job:) I had found a great deal for a week in the mirage in September but sadly I had to pass it up.

Now that everything is over I had a look yest and just booked it anyway! Heading to mirage for a week in September 14/9- 21/9. Flying from dublin with one stop in Phily. £918 pp. I really can't wait. I have seen that cee lo green ( not sure of the spelling) has a new show starting in ph, we plan to see that and love. Last time round we planned for too much and were stressing about seeing everything.

The only plans we are making is those two shows and a nice steak dinner some evening that's it! Going to take this one as it comes and spend more time chilling by the (no doubt incredibly busy) pool gambling and eating ourselves to death :)

Hope to have a budget of about $250 a day gambling for the seven days. Plan to try some craps this trip, however I'm mainly a bj player. The most slots I played last time was waiting for the flight home. Hopefully the poker room is kinder to me than ph was, I've never had so many bad beats at the tables as I did last time.

So all in all thanks everyone for their kind advice on my trip todate. I'm thoroughly excited and no doubt il be on here everyday for hints tips and the odd thread about something!

We are also planning less this time, past visits we seem to have been on a permanent timetable so it will be nice to make decisions on what to do on the day.

Glad you have a trip sorted!
