I'm back..................

Well I left Harrah's in Vegas yesterday morning at 8am and didn't arrive back here at home until 11pm. Talk about a long day traveling and not a great way to spend Easter either. I should have slept in this morning but I was up early and have already finished 3 loads of laundry and have everything unpacked and put away. Joys of vacation.........coming home and playing catch up around the house.

Speaking of vacation here's a few more pictures of Arizona. As you can see the temperature on Tuesday at 3pm was 95 which was the high for the week. Later it was in 80's & 70's which is just as nice. My mom & I did a ladies day and had our hair and nails done which was so much fun. I actually had acrylic nails put on for the 1st time and they look so pretty! I am having a hard time tho learning to put on jewelry and even typing here so will have to see how I adjust. It just makes you feel so feminine to have long painted nails and jewelry on.

It was great getting all that Vitamin D (sunshine) and a little hard re-adjusting to temps in the 40's. Needless to say I do have the fireplace going and haven't ventured outside yet for groceries!

On our way back to Vegas my brother took us on a "shortcut" called Christmas Tree pass and it was kinda like a road that had been traveled by covered wagons at one time........we even bottomed out at times trying to avoid potholes but the scenery was spectacular. Can you imagine flowers blooming bright yellow & red in the middle of the desert? Here's a few pictures from that side trip. Tomorrow I will do some pictures of Vegas as I am in the midst of downloading them all to Walgreens as they have their 10cents sale special & I will be able to pick them all up this afternoon.

Well back to work and stop by tomorrow for some fabulous pictures of Vegas!

Your hair looks great! I laughed how you're trying to type with your new nails. :)
I wish it was all warm and sunshine here! Rain all day today and tomorrow. I just want to go back to bed.
I can't wait to hear if Kevin's bowling balls got there in time and if he won!
