Double Digits

While I was out of town, my ten month LID anniversary passed. I have searched and searched for a picture of ten ladybugs to represent this momentous occasion, but have not been successful. It really feels more like this many months anyway, doesn't it?


I had a great time in Las Vegas. Stayed at the Hilton for the first time, and I've decided that it isn't my favorite place to stay. For such a big hotel, there's not a lot to do there. But we did manage to go see the new Wynn, which is absolutely beautiful! We also had a dinner at Paris (my personal favorite), a late afternoon snack and beverage on Cinco de Mayo over at the Border Grill in the Mandalay Bay hotel, and breakfast with friends at The Palms. It was insanely busy and crowded on The Strip as there was a huge fight in town and it was Cinco de Mayo weekend. I had hoped to spend a little time out by the pool reading my new book, but the weather wasn't great for that. It was really windy, and on Saturday it was quite chilly. I didn't win a thing, either! Dang it! ;-)

The highlight of the weekend for me was seeing my sweetie (yes, I have a sweetie), Michael, play with the P@ul Ank@ band in the Hilton showroom. Here's a picture of him onstage:


The show was a lot of fun. Those ladies in the audience really went wild for Paul! What a hoot!

And here we are, all gussied up before going out for the show and dinner:


Anyway, it was really good to get out of town and have some fun together. Now it's back to the daily grind for another six weeks until school gets out. Yahoo!

    Congrats on being 10 down!

    Sounds like a great trip. What a bummer it was too cool to sit by the pool. I guess that means you just have to go back. :)

    Okay, first of all, your hair is not that short. The way you made it sound I thought you had a pixie cut! Hah. And it's really a cute cut for you.

    Secondly, nice job on the sweetie! He's a cutie pie! ;-D

    You guys look great together.

    First of all happy 10 months, and it is so nice to see you out enjoying yourself these days. Hope you were able to bring home some of the Nevada finest cash. Its great to see you with your sweetie, is he still planning on coming this way and might I see you anytime soon. I hope so all the snow is gone and its getting warmer. I am considering taking a break and a new direction with my masters so I can have time to spend on preparing for my new life. It will happen can you believe it has been a year since we found each other. The next year will be hard so we have to stick together. Have a great weekend.

    Joannah... thanks so much for your comment on my post. I don't know why this year feels so much tougher than last (maybe I was still in shock last year). I have always wanted to ask if I could add you to my blogroll- would that be okay? I lost track of you for awhile and I hate when that happens.

    Thanks so much.
