Going Solo...

Though it seems like a lifetime ago, I once lived alone and for quite some time. I loved being able to claim my space and know what was what and do as I pleased. And then about 3 years ago that all changed when I moved in with my then boyfriend and now husband. I was forced to get accustomed to someone else's habits and needs and find ways to deal with having someone else in my space at all hours of the day. Though it was tough in the beginning and if you were to ask either of us at the time, I am sure that we were not certain that we would make it... But we did.

And now, with Paul away visiting his brothers... I would like nothing more than to have someone crowding my space. I am grateful that we are independent enough to have our own lives and travel as we see fit, but it is comforting to know that we have one another to come back to.

I will make the most of this time alone, but I will surely make the most of the time that I will have with him when he returns.

A Much Needed Post on Vegas

So it has been like 2 weeks since we went to Vegas but I still feel that it is neccesary to post a few pictures and some notes on the fantastic 4 days that we spent in Vegas. We were fortunate enough to stay at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay and it was amazing... Super cool suite with 2 bathrooms and a HUGE tub, easily could have fit 3 people in there... And I mean the tub.

And we were able to get a cabana while we were there... And I have to say that it was the best decision weve made in awhile.

We had a great time with Pauls mom and brother Robert and his friends Nancy and Josh.

So after all the pool time and gambling and eating and drinking we were able to se LOVE the show at the Mirage. I have seen it before and I have to admit that on the first round it brought me to tears, so I was game to see it again. And luckily it did not disapoint, still one of the best shows I have ever seen.

Not sure why... But at the time, this seemed like a great idea!

So we flew out there but the flights home were a hot mess and a lot more than we wanted to spend, so we rented a car. Now we requested a compact and well we got this...
