friday loves vol. 5

Friday, June 24, 2016

Our last Friday in Las Vegas. This is so bittersweet, so I wanted to share some of our favorite places and parts of the city that never sleeps from our local perspective.

lyfe kitchen
Our go-to restaurant! We found this place when I was pregnant and instantly fell in love with its organic, locally grown menu and how food allergy friendly it is. I was dairy-free for Sophia for over a year and I could always count on eating something delicious off of the menu without feeling like I was missing out. 

donut time off of Charleston
The best donut place in town. It's open 24 hours a day and seriously delicious. A sweet friend of mine told me about it and when I mentioned it to Austen he informed me that he already knew it was the best donut place around. Practicing self-control here is really hard.

the district at green valley
There are so many cute shops with palm trees wrapped in lights lining the cobblestone center street. I love being able to take Sophia on a little walk that ends with some time in the splash pad. It's perfect when Austen's running errands nearby but we need some play time, or when family is in town and wants to gamble at a local casino (aka: not on The Strip). There are farmers markets, music nights, and all sorts of sweet events held here, too. 

I will so miss this place! Austen's been into half a dozen quilt shops, either with me or his grandma + great aunt, and his first response was, "It's so big." And it really is. I will especially miss their fabulous sale room. 

It's been forever since I've last been, but it's the cutest little coffee shop in Summerlin. If you need a little dose of something other than Starbucks, this is somewhere I recommend! It has a very young, hipster feel to it that totally spoke to the hipster-college-town girl in me.

mt. charleston and red rock
Mt. Charleston is one of our favorite places to escape the desert heat. There are so many great hiking trails of various difficulty levels and lengths, from short hikes to over night trails. There is a darling little restaurant with cabins; we spent our first anniversary up there and it was so sweet! There's a small ski resort that I've heard is decent for being so close to the valley (we always went to Southern Utah).
