I Already Miss It...

Being on the plane with my honey

anticipating the arrival,

and having alone moments with my man,

while walking the strip.

Even though we never got to eat here,

we got to stay here!

I miss my hubby being silly

as I got silly!

Even though I don't miss losing money

and getting exciting thinking this was going to bring in the cash....when it didn't,

I still got to enjoy this scenery

and this show

and moments like these!

I'm so ready to go back!

Six Word Saturday!

Haven't Decided What To Do Today!

I already did my 3 mile walk this morning at least. I also saw some perfect photo opportunities but I didn't have my camera. Thinking about taking pictures today but I just don't know where to go. Perhaps I'll look up some parks in the area. I don't know. I feel like I'm in a funk right now. Maybe because I just miss Vegas already. I hate that it takes so long for our vacations to come but when they do come, they go by so fast.

Anyways, head over to Cate's to see what others are doing.

Five Question Friday!

1. Do you know how to play a musical instrument?
Nope. Not very musically inclined. I do know Chopsticks on the piano but that's as far as it goes for me. Not winning any awards here.

2. What is your pet peeve while driving?
Seriously? I can seriously fill this whole post with pet peeves but I won't.

{Disclaimer: First of all, I have gotten better and I have chilled out but I am guilty of having road rage. Hey! I said I've chilled out!! I live here in California so it seems we are always in a rush....which we are cause of the stupid traffic....ALL THE TIME! When there is a clearing, we step on it to get away from it.}

So anyways, my pet peeve right now is when you have a slow driver in the fast lane. UGH! People, slow lane is for slow pokes. MOVE. OVER!!

3. Would you rather have a housekeeper or unlimited spa services?
Hmmm....neither? My house isn't that big as it is and I think it would be ridiculous to have a housekeeper. Plus it just has "LAZY" written all over it. I prefer to clean my own house, thank you very much.
As for unlimited spa services, honestly, I don't think I would use it much cause I never go now as it is. Perhaps because of money so then if it is unlimited, maybe I would use it. Okay, whatever...I'll say the unlimited spa services. You convinced me!

4. Is there a song that you hear that will take you back to the moment, like a junior high or high school dance?
Not a dance or anything but I do remember in High School when I was taking driver's education and there were two other girls and myself with the teacher taking turns driving and I remember the song Mercedes Boy by Pebbles was playing on the radio. I just looked that song up yesterday on Youtube to play for my daughter. Memories!

5. What song best represents your life right now?
Well, only thing I can think of at the moment, cause we just got back from Vegas is...

~~~~'s Friday and I'm happy! Hope you all are also! Have a great weekend!!

Writing Assignment: Hey Lover!

When I saw this weeks prompts from Mama Kat, I knew this was the one I wanted to do.

2.) Write a poem about a picture.

Hey Lover

Hey Lover
It's just you and me
Together alone
The way it used to be.

Hey Lover
You make me smile
The things you say
Are so worthwhile.

Hey Lover
These moments we share
Each and every day
This great love affair.

Hey Lover
The love I have for you
After all these years
If only you knew.

Hey Lover
My partner, my husband, my life
I couldn't be any happier
Being your wife!

Mama's Losin' It

Now head on over to Mama Kat's and join in. It's fun!

I Love Sugar!


While in Vegas this past weekend, we came across this super cute store.

I mean, I had seen pictures and ads like this...

But I didn't realize how super cute the lollipops were.


Look how pretty, sparkly and how fun these look!

I love all things sparkly!

I do!

Sure, it's a little more than I want to spend for a lollipop ($22.50 or $25 online) but you get to keep the stem and just replace the lollipop when you're done.

I know......Sweet!!
{no pun intended}

No, I didn't get one this time but I did get this for my daughter but in hot pink.

Next super cute store to hit...

Can we just say.....YUM?!?!

What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas!

With as many times as we have been to Vegas, there was bound to be some stories I could share, right?! Of course!

So, I have decided to share one. Let's get started now, shall we....

One word........E-Brake! When we have rented cars in the past, we get playful with them. In Vegas, we do it all the time. When we're in the parking garages, we will be coming up to another car and pull the e-brake and then bust up laughing. With it being in the parking garage, the screech echos so it sounds louder than ever. It's so funny but I'm sure the cars in front of us didn't appreciate the humor in it.

Disclaimer: We don't do this anymore!!! This was something we did when we were younger!!

So, one time we were driving down Tropicana Blvd and I was driving, as always. Yes, I'm the one that is driving all the time when we are doing these fun little destructive things. Anyways, while we were driving, we spotted a target. Some guy walking down the street and as we got right up on him, we pulled the e-brake and made such a loud screech and you should have seen this guy jump. We scared this poor guy. He probably thought a car was seriously going to hit him.

We have a video of it. You can't actually see the guy get scared cause we passed him but you hear me laughing and my husband laughing and saying the guy got scared. I was going to share the video but it may just become annoying from my laughing the whole time and just the whole thing being childish. So, I decided not to cause I don't want to annoy.


Well, we'll be coming home tomorrow. I'm sure we've been having lots of fun but since I'm writing this Saturday morning before our flight, I can only imagine the fun we are having by the time you all are reading this. I know I will be sad to leave tomorrow too. Until then.....I'm gonna enjoy it while I'm still here...or there, since I'm not there yet. Um....well, you know what I mean! ;o)

Heading To Vegas With My Hubby!

The Strip from the plane Pictures, Images and Photos


This is what we will be seeing in about 10 hours, that's if there are no delays at the airport. I can't wait!! A little bummed that we'll be there without our daughter on Father's Day but since my parent's are taking care of her, we got a camera and mic and signed my parent's up for Skype so that we can see each other and my daughter can wish her daddy a Happy Father's Day. Yah for Skype!!!!!

Again, I've lines up some daily post for all of you. Be sure to check back each day!


Now head on over to Cate's to see what everyone else is doing!
