Still deflating and trying to get back into the swing of things since Las Vegas / Thanksgiving. A sign that the organization bug is still alive and buzzing?? Once home, I actually unpacked and washed my clothes right away. This normally doesn’t happen until the suitcase has been laying in the middle of the bedroom floor for about a week. So *high5*! I also made it to the grocery store and gym today. I’m moving slow (still not 100%), but things are getting done. Go me!
Wish I had an awesome post full of tons of pics, but Vegas was very low key this year, probably because I wasn’t feeling the greatest. I do however have pics of food…Of course! I’ll save those for Friday.
I’m having a hard time getting back into the blogging, work side of things. I’m working on it, but it’s definitely moving at a slower than I would like pace. The goals for the rest of the week:
- get the workouts in, even if they are only cardio, get ’em, done!
- get back to the blog and shop routine
- work on a custom order I have since I’ve FINALLY received all of the supplies for it.
That’s about all I can handle for now. Anybody else having a hard time getting back to their “normal” pre-long weekend/holiday/out of town/family in town life? I’m really struggling this time.
Before I go I’ll leave you guys with a mini photo recap…
The drive out was beautiful, especially during sunset. We didn’t make the best time, but it wasn’t our record worse (8 hours a few years ago).
In preparation for the trip I found a new favorite nail polish, this awesome grey from Essie, Mind Your Mittens. It’s a great break from black, but still edgy and sophisticated, LOVE!
I was finally able to talk the BF into seeing a cirque show. We had wonderful seats and it was fabulous, we both LOVED it! It totally re-ignited my desire to take tissu and contortion classes!!!
For some reason this trip produced a lot of bloody marys consumption, which is odd because I never drink them. I was more than pleasantly surprised, they hit the s-p-o-t! This is a pic of the BLT Bloody Mary, can you say yum?!
We usually have Thanksgiving dinner at the Wynn, but not this year, more on that Friday. I was totally excited that we ended up having brekky there one day because it’s always exciting to see their holiday floral displays. Check my favorite from this year! I’m in love, it’s so me, the only thing that would have made it MORE me would have been if they were unicorns or My Little Pony! 😉 Simply beautiful!
Another delish bloody mary, this one had Bakon Vodka and Mezcal. Oh yes please! It packed quite the punch, and if I hadn’t been with family, I would have had another and tried the Bloody Bull, it has beef broth and a Slim Jim, c’mon!!
We also were lucky enough to catch Bill Cosby’s latest stand up tour while he was in town. Wish I could rave about it, but at least we got to see him, and that’s pretty cool.
I also found my Christmas present this year! Hope Santa realizes just how good I’ve been!! *HONK*HONK*
The drive home also had beautiful views , volcano clouds and snow capped mountains included, can’t complain about that.
~Til next time Vegas~
