Viva Las Vegas

I've survived my weekend trip to Las Vegas!  Pictures are to come soon, but for now enjoy the few I pulled from online.

We stayed at the Flamingo!

Awkward and Awesome Thursday


The picture is blurry, so you can't get how truly strange it is.  But I was caught putting my scarf on Maggie (what?! She looked cold - haha).

Becoming a regular at McDonald's for my daily dose of Diet Coke. Luckily it's just one of the McDonald's in town.

Staring down a woman waiting for her to finish trying on the last pair of shoes in my size - I just HAD to have them.


Maggie actually letting me put a scarf on her, I think she secretly likes it.

Finalizing my plans for VEGAS!

Having pizza at the office yesterday - thanks to another snow day in Missouri.

Grandma making my FAVORITE cookies and giving me a tin full.

Realizing that I've been carrying around the same pair of sunglasses for over 4 months now.  I'm notarious for losing them. *knock on wood*

Hostess with the Mostess

This image is what comes to my mind when I think of hosting a get together.  Why?  I have no idea!  I always imagine the 50's housewife who seems picture perfect; from her hair, which never seems to have a strand out of place to her hostess apron that never seems to have a spec of dirt on it.  I mean how do they not spill anything on themselves while cooking?  I never can manage NOT making a mess.

Anyways, I have a sudden urge to purchase a hostess apron for all the get togethers I want to throw this coming year.  Here are a few that I've found online... my favorite is the one from Anthropologie - isn't it adorable!?!

Think Pink

With Valentine's Day a week away, I thought what better way to get in the mood than a little pink inspiration.

A while back I showed off a picture of my Dad's new puppy, Zella.  It was a horrible picture, but I talked about it here.  I finally uploaded pictures on my computer.  So now I can show off the pup.

The first 2 were taken right after my Dad picked her up (September 2010).

My sister and her dog, Thomas, trying to snap some pictures at Christmas time.
She grew so fast!
