Snooki and Jionni hosted a Spring Break party -- wonder if she ever thought she'd be hosting a baby shower a year later? Credit: PRN/PR Photos

The hot mess that is Snooki — and her suprisingly doting now-fiancee, Jionni LaValle — had a rather torrid courtship (played out on TV) before the proverbial sh*t hit the fan and she announced her pregnancy and engagement. Regardless of how we think her baby will turn out (Will it be born with pink and blonde extensions? A penchant for getting arrested?), we have the scoop on where and when it all went down.

  • March 2011: Simpler times at the Luxor Hotel – Las Vegas, NV
  • Snooks kicked off last year’s Spring Break season by hosting a party at the Vegas spin-off of Los Angeles club LAX with her then-new BF in tow. While she may have been a bit sloppy (I mean, just look at her), she reportedly earned $25,000 just to dance and drink for a few hours at the club. Unlike the hotel’s ancient Egyptian vibe, LAX features deep red leather interiors, oversized mirrors and glittering chandeliers, as well as an A-List crowd. (However, the room rates are pretty cheap here — some serious bang for your buck.) And with the Luxor possibly making $45,000 in bar fees from one shot of Snooki, it’s not surprising she has been often welcomed back to the City of Sin since.
