Vegas, baby!

Hallo meine Lieben,

I am linking up with the fabulous Lin from Linny's Vault and the wonderful Amber from Glitter And Dirt for some random Ten On Tuesday. Like I do every Tuesday. 

So here we go. 

1. The exciting news first: VEGAS, BABY! We will go on a trip to Las Vegas next month and I could not be more excited. I always wanted to see Vegas. We already ordered a travel guide but I need some recommendations from you. Have you been there? What do you like? What do we have to see or do?



2. I am listening to songs that I loved years and years ago and I fell in love with them all over again. This is one of them.




3. My hair is really annoying at the moment. I need a change. I am thinking about bangs but I am not sure. I'm really not a fan of my own hair. 

4. This is pretty inspiring. 



5. I got an app for my phone which tells me what shows are on TV tonight. I am not organized enough to remember that myself so this is really helpful. 

6. I started to watch an episode of The Mentalist eight times now and still haven't finished it. I'd say it is a shame because I really really like that show and I won't give up on that episode. Someday I will be able to watch the whole thing. 

7. Recently I have heard the German voice of Patrick Jane and it is terrible. I could never watch that show in German. Most shows are unbearable in German. The Big Bang Theory, Friends....bäh....

8. I hate to wake up ten minutes before my alarm goes off. I always think that it is in the middle of the night and that I can get much more sleep. It's a terrible feeling when you realize that you have to get up soon.

9. I have to say that I am totally riveted by the books by Jussi Adler Olsen. I love the way he writes and I love the characters. I am so glad I found another book series I love.

10. I will definitely gamble a bit when we are in Vegas. Black Jack, Poker, Roulette, one-armed bandit...Can't wait to have fun and lose some money!


Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  2. Yay to going to Vegas, Katrin! But wait, are you here in the States now??? :O I thought you were still in Germany! Have you brought or are you bringing your pets?

    As for Vegas, to be quite honest, I didn't love it, BUT hey, I'm not really a gambler and it is nice enough to visit it once. And I actually only been to the Strip, I was told there are little nice places here and there outside the strip. I'll copy a link from WishWishWish (let me find it) of such nice places ;). If you guys happen to go on a road trip I recommend that you go to Calico Ghost Town, but that's on the way to Vegas from Cali, hehe, so it'd be probably difficult to fit. Also, Peggy Sue diner is a must-go close to Calico (it's an original 50s diner).

    And I hate it too when I wake up before my alarm goes off! :/

    Hope you're having a wonderful week, sweet Katrin! :D

    Kitty hugs!

    1. Thank you so much for all your recommendations! I looked on the website of Calico Ghost town and it looks so cool and interesting. I would love to go there! And a 50s diner sounds like my kind of thing! Thank you so much, my friend!
      Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Here's a list with links to posts that Carrie posted ;).

    The Venetian is pretty cool to visit, btw. It's one of the most popular hotels in the Strip.

  4. The Mentalist is my boyfriend's favorite show and I want to watch it with him but I just can't for some reason....I think I'm just slightly too ADD to sit through it...but I will try harder one day haha.

    And yay for Vegas!!!!! I've only been there once and I was underage when I went so I don't really have any suggestions as to where to visit. I know you'll have a blast though!

  6. 1. You're gonna be in Vegas in Feb? Me too! I'll be there 2/10-2/13. My advice: visit all hotels on the strip, the 3-story M&M store, see Penn & Teller if you like magic & watch ZUMANITY. Also, hit up a couple night clubs, they're a lot of fun & have ladies nights were women get in free & get free drinks :)

    1. Damn it, I hit publish on accident.

      3. Mine's bugging the hell outta me right now too. I need to cut it.
      4. Wow. That's definitely an inspiration.
      6. I've never watched The Mentalist before but have heard it's pretty good. I'll probably catch it soon.
      8. Ha, Em & I were just talking about that today. It's awful.
      10. I go to Vegas at least 2x a year & Ive never played anything but the slot machines. Love them.

    2. You will be in vegas too? How awesome is that? We will be there at the same time! What will you do? I can't wait! Thanks for all the tipps! I definitely want to see Penn & Teller. I did not know that they have a show there! And free drinks sound awesome!
      I will definitely play some slot machines!

  7. Fingers crossed you WIN some money in Vegas! I have been 3 times... once when I was 17 with my Mom, but then twice since then with friends... which is always trouble. After the last time I decided I don't think I could do it again.... my body can't handle it! We drank too much, slept too little, ate tons of junk, and I may have even got a tattoo.... Trouble I tell ya. (We did have lots of fun though too...:)

    What is the app you got that tells you which shows are on that night?? ~Stephanie

      I hope my body can handle Vegas! :) I try not to drink too much and get some sleep! :) Maybe I will get a tattoo though. Hehe!

      The app is called "TV chaser". It is really good. It also gives you a short summary of the episodes.
      Have a fun week!

  8. DDDDUuuuuuuude, I love Vegas. I got hitched in Vegas. Vegas is the shiznit! I wanna go! Black Jack is my game. I love the downtown casions (versus casinos on the strip) because they are cheaper and have $1 Black Jack haha

    Thanks for linking up for 10 on Tuesday!

    1. One dollar Black Jack sounds awesome. I need to check that out! :) I can't wait to see Vegas!

  9. VIVA LAS VEGAS! For gambling, you HAVE HAVE HAVE to play craps, it's by far the most fun and apparently it also has the highest pay out. Your money always goes so fast in Black Jack and others but in this one, sometimes your money can sit on the table for awhile. Anyway, it's a blast!

    And I have a TV show app too - it's a serious lifesaver!

    1. I have never even heard about that game! I need to see what it is! High payout sounds awesome. hehe!

      And yeah, I check that app every day!
