I went to Vegas with some girlfriends this weekend! We went to see Janet Jackson, who has a residency at Park MGM. It was also a belated birthday gift to my dad and birthday gift for my mom, so I drove with them and paid for the hotel room!
Here's what I spent (my friends spent more because they flew to Vegas):
Gas to and from: Parents paid for gas, but I want to say it was about $150 Roundtrip.
Parents' hotel room at the Wynn: $270.98, which breaks down to:
Room Rate - $194
Resort Fee - $45 (what does this really cover?)
Resort Fee Tax - $6.02
Tax - $25.96
Lunch at Yong Kang Street (a Taiwanese dim sum restaurant at Paris Casino): $96.28
Uber rides: My friend paid for this, and I need to reimburse her, but I want to say maybe $20 total?
Dinner at Eataly: $40.66
Ticket to Janet Jackson Metamorphosis Experience: $226.32
Hotel Room at Bally's (where the girls and I stayed): My share was $75.13 for the night.
We also got invited to a club, but we all got in for free! Plus, free drinks! So that was a score.
So, I spent a little under $900. Was it worth it? YES! How did I FEEL spending on all of those things? Happy. I was living in a lot of my values -- LOVE (for my family and friends), Freedom (to get away from work and studying this one weekend), Vitality (again, it was a mental break from everything, music always makes me happier and also I danced, A LOT!), Relationships/Loyalty (bonding time with girlfriends is always important to me) and Creativity (Just the lights at Janet's show inspired me, creatively!).

With so much Gratitude & Love,
