Hi lovely readers! As many of you know who follow the ATX Housewives FB page, I was just recently in the glorious city of Las Vegas with a ton of other women. I was there along with some of the other HITC ladies for the Connect Her Media conference that is held once a year! It was so much fun and I met so many awesome women who are just running the world like a boss and doing it well! It was very inspiring to be around the founder of our awesome community, Andrea Khoury from Northern Virginia HITC as well as the other super successful ladies who spoke, were on a panel or were there to hold round table sessions!
I went out a day early to hang with my little sis, Dad & Step-mom since they live out there half of the time. I got to take my sis to my most favorite restaurant in Vegas, Firefly! If you are ever out there, GO TO THIS restaurant! It is tapas style and every single dish is the most amazing thing you've ever had! I'm not exaggerating. And No they are not paying me to say this, it is just seriously that good. It's not on the strip either which makes it so chill and laid back even though it's a little fancy on the inside. It was so delicious that I didn't take a single photo, which is unusual for me.
Then Friday it was time to meet up with my other HITC ladies and spend some much needed pool time at the SLS hotel where the conference was held! I loved getting to know all of these gals and the sun tan didn't hurt either. Later that evening we were invited to a super yummy meal at Giordano's Pizza which was sooo good too! There was wine, pizza, pasta, salad and so many smart women there to network with! I wish they would open up a restaurant in Austin because I always thought I was more of a NYC pizza fan but I really enjoyed this Chicago style, it was ALL cheese and was freakin' delicious!
Saturday came around and we had a lovely breakfast from Got Milk? to start the day. We were then moving deep into speakers and the founder of Fab Fit Fun started the day, so awesome! Then came round table discussions, the Swag Suite and so much networking! I got to meet an amazing gal Poala from the very exciting Xcaret Adventures in Mexico and I will be there next month so that was pretty cool! Later that evening we had yet another delicious sponsored dinner from Johnny Rockets where I'm ashamed to admit it but I scarfed down chili cheese fries, tater tots, a salad (not too much of this item), a cheeseburger and a milk shake flight with chocolate, vanilla & strawberry! The strawberry was the best. I must be getting old because after dinner I did a little gambling at the slots and roulette table where I lost $20 and then I was ready to call it a night by 11pm, not kidding at all.
We moved right on along to Sunday for the keynote speaker from Mom Trends who was a really nice and insightful woman, I really enjoyed her talk! This led to more round tables and finally a panel that our founder was on so that was VERY cool! All in all my full weekend with a ton of women was informative, fun, hilarious and inspiring! Sometimes when you get a group of women together for that long of a time things can get cliquey, dramatic or catty but not with this group! Hallelujah!
I wrapped up Sunday with a gorgeous hike with my sis around Red Rock Canyon and the views there are INSANE! I hadn't ever experienced that side of Vegas so I was super impressed, it is a must see for sure! Put it on your bucket list people, the photos below don't even do it justice! Well I hope you enjoyed the little story of my amazing weekend with even more amazing women & I hope to see you all at the August event coming up at the end of the month!
