Back to Reality

What a beautiful city full of lights and laughter!! I am back from Las Vegas with many great memories. My feet are still achy from all the miles we must have walked total. Lots of hilarious quotes from throughout the trip to be laughed at for a long while :)

  • "I the thought the flight was 40 minutes to Vegas"
  • " Oh I know that guy, I was with him last night"
  • "Payday is next year"

Hilarious and much more where that came from-my dear friend Buckshee wrote loads of em down (for scrapbooking purposes of course!)

Went to the Palms for a night out and visited Moon, Ghostbar and the Playboy Lounge-super fun and all very different. But the best part for me was the Lion King musical-I cried like a baby through the whole thing. It was spectacular....LOVED it! We also did the Iffel Tower tour-that had some spectacular views as beautiful.

Will update a wee bit more soon...just a brief synopsis of the trip :)

Well tomorrow at this time I will be in Las Vegas hopefully witha icy drink in hand-walking up and down the strip! Cannot wait for the beautiful lights and to hear the song of the trip...I wonder what it will be?

  • Fire Burning-Sean Kingston
  • Gotta Feeling-BEP
  • Waking up in Vegas-Katy Perry (too predictable if you ask me!)

pics to follow...

House hunting: in a word.

Ok, so it is very much an emotional roller coaster while shopping for a house.
THE one was such a major dissapointment. My Gosh was it ever...
There was one we liked, but I dont think either my hubby or I 'loved' it. It
was 'nice' though. So back to the MLS we go and saving those pennies...evey bit counts!

Vegas in 12 days...YAY! Lion King here we come and great shopping! oh happy day...

My hubby and I are taking the kids (my nieces) to Playland on Monday and they are so excited!! So are Auntie & Uncle :) Oh I love those kids...Best ever!

As of last night, we need to be out of our current home on Oct 11th...
Panic? yuppers.... ah well, it will all fall in to place :)



Monday, August 10, 2009

Wellllll today is the day we start looking at more houses...there are about 6 on the list (give or take) and we are all giddy like children!! THe realtor will be here in about 1/2 hour. Our personal tour guide ;)
Last night we watched The Watchmen: Horrible movie...We'll never get that 3 hours back! Yes, I said 3 hours...horrible. 2 thumbs down.
Will report back later
Have a fantastic day!!

Soooo Excited!

Tomorrow my Hubby and I are going to look at a list of potential homes!!! There is one I am hopingto completely fall in love with and redo with loads of love adn ceative design! If we do infact like this one particular place, I can't wait to get new cabinets and countertops! I have started looking adn have found some great options! Hubby even likes the white shaker style-yay! I am so very excited! I am hoping to be able to get some beautiful espresso/almost black hardwood as well for the floors...
I am so in reno mode! I am looking forward to buying a special decor piece in Vegas when we go at the end of the month! (Loving the Z gallerie rhino and large shell dish!)
I will most certainly update tomorrow! The realtor will be here bright and early at 0830 :)

It's movie night tonight...wonder what Hubby will pick out??

Visions of white...

This whole house hunting thing is overwhelming! I desperately want to have our own little haven to call our own! We have spent countless hours going through emails from our realtor and really...not that much gets our attention. There is however, this cute little one that needs ALOT of TLC but it is in a GREAT neighbourhood. You know what they say "location, location, location" So this weekend we are going to go look a a few more, including this little hidden gem.

I have visions of White dancing through my head and cannot wait to decorate! I am likely getting 2 dressers to Shab out and use in our new abode. So excited about that! They are already sanded and primed as well-score :)

Vegas is also fast approaching and I cannot wait. I am going with a group of ladies who are near and dear to my heart. We just get on so well adn are ALWAYS laughing...These types of people really lift you...even when you are not really in need of a lift :) Shopping and sight seeing are in the works...And I cannot stand to wait any longer to see the Lion King! At long last!!!

This whole post wedding phasse is a real downer...I miss all the excitement of planning and designing. All the people that pulled together to help was really overwhelming (in a good way) and I am so very blessed to have had such a perfect day :) I love my Hubby so very much!

So expect more blogging, I just need a outlet to post all about my Visons of white!
