Back to Reality!

Back from Las Vegas where we spent the Holidays this year with great friends.  Unfortunately, the both of us got sick.....the flight home was wicked.  NOTE to self!...don't fly when you have a cold! We arrived home late on Saturday and have not ventured out yet. Have been spending the days resting and hopefully back to work tomorrow!   **Oh Joy!  Some pics of our travels!

The Bears!

I may know him! 

Neat display in a store!

Pretty Cool!

Our Christmas decorations at home!  On top of closet!

I spent the big 60th B'day in Vegas with the J's and Alan.  While I was having my shower, hubby went downstairs and got us champagne to start the day!  Then he gave me a beautiful pair of diamond earrings!  The J's gave me a flamingo for my Pandora bracelet, it is beautiful.  We went to Todd English Bar & Grill for dinner...it wasn't great food the first time around...I have never had a hot lobster roll so sent it back!  Picky or what but at this age....I am accustomed to certain things!  

Hubby, scotch & cigar!

Spent a couple of nights at the casino and the 5 O'clock Bar....great time.  Went with friends to Sam's Town and some other casinos off the strip.  Got to see a whole other side of Vegas and don't believe we will ever stay on the strip again.

Looks like a nice place to stay next time!

We took a drive to the Las Vegas Speedway.....Glittering Lights at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway will feature approximately 2.5 miles of lights, millions of twinkling lights, making for a great holiday experience for family and friends.  It was truly amazing to see and the funds raised go to Children's Charities.

So pretty!

New Years Eve, the strip was closed so we couldn't ring in the New Year with friends.  Our room at the Flamingo was directly across the street from Caesars Palace and not too far from the Bellagio where they have the "dancing waters" and the Cosmopolitan  where they also had fireworks.  We could see it all from the 14th floor! Simply amazing!

Ringing in 2015!

Jan 3 and time to leave....the J's picked us up, we spent the afternoon (after a terrific lunch) with them and they drove us to the airport.  Back to reality and freaking COLD and SNOW!

Been snowing ever since we got off the plane on Saturday night....OMG....and COLD!  I have one goal and desire for 2015! Anyone care to take a guess!!!! 

Fooling around with the camera before we left Las Vegas!  Great pic!  Miss you J.
