You must write for yourself and not what you think people want to read ~Jodi Ellen Malpas


Well you sure are nosy, wanting to know all about me…I like it ๐Ÿ˜‚!!

You’re totally my people โœŒ๐Ÿพ. So here goes. I am Tanisha Finley an organized, thorough and detail-oriented planner, creator and administrator. My presence almost always indicates the beginning of something energetic and boisterous. Born and Raised in sunny โ˜€๏ธ Peoria, Arizona. I’m  the oldest of three siblings and the ONLY girl (which totally explains why I’m such a BOSS ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’๐Ÿพ). Happily married ๐Ÿ’ to my high school sweetheart ๐Ÿ’ž on 7-7-07 in my favorite city, Las Vegas and proud mother of 3 off-the-wall teenagers, between ages 14 and 17 years old.

I am totally obsessed with Las Vegas so I created Stay and Play Vegas DOT com so that I could share my love and knowledge with other Vegas travelers. My goal is to create an online travel directory (blog) for the financially conscious traveler, offering creative commentary, real reviews and trip consulting services.


Newsletter Title
