If you're a fan of Vegas, sorry. I just didn't like the vibe. I did make it to the casino, just to be able to say I played Black Jack there. I've never lost $20 so fast in my life. I hit the mall to buy Hubby and the kids some gifts and fended off some very aggressive sales people. (Thanks, pushy guy selling $200 face cream, for saying I need collagen for my laugh lines; why are you surprised that I walked away? Really??)
The images in Vegas run the gamut. At one point, this was following me down the street:
Elmo then started to rush up behind me and all that's going through my head is, "I'm about to throw-down with one of my son's favorite characters. Bring it, muppet!"
Alas, he was just running to cross the street before the light turned green. Did I feel stupid? Yes. But, in that town, there is the reality that you could be accosted by a Sesame Street character, so I was justified in my fright.
I did enjoy my plush hotel room and room service, which made for a nice getaway. By Friday, I was more than ready to return home. My parents brought the kids to meet me at the airport and that was a wonderful sight.
Anyhoo, back to the grind today. Hope you had a great weekend. Oh, by the way, just had to share my latest and favorite purchase, Chanel's Chance Eau Tendre perfume.
Love this scent!
Happy Monday, friends. Hope you had a great weekend.
