Bingo, Salsa and Bonnie?

Friday I snuck out of work and played bingo with Colleen McGraw. We went over to Boulder station and proceeded to win, we rock the bingo world. She got 150 and I got 50! Then we had a fabulous breakfast off the fit and lively menu at coco's, who thought scrambled egg whites and mushrooms and tomatoes could taste that good but they did! Yum! I love eating healthy, my body feels so much better!

Saturday found me and Charlie over at Lowe's for our consultation, 4800.00 for everything! Yeah! We are under budget!! So a couple more meetings to get the measurements right and finalize everything and soon I will be cooking in the cutest little kitchen you ever laid eyes on!

Oh, you want to know where the salsa comes in to the picture, after our lowe's meeting, we went to mimi's to have breakfast, I order the santa fe omelette, it comes with a little cup of salsa..when the waiter put my plate down he tilted it and the little bowl of salsa went sliding off right into my lap!! They gave me a wet towel to clean up but it was most embarrasing to walk out of there! My meal was free but what a price to pay!

Bonnie who?
Bonnie Raitt of course, Tanya and I took turns waiting for our secret source to post her tickets, Tanya snagged them up as soon as she saw them, I was only minutes behind her, but that girl is fast!

Saturday night Charlie drove us to Primm. We had a great dinner at Tony Roma's, then walked to the outlet mall, sat down for a drink, A jack and coke, then a crown and coke...you can sure tell the difference in the whiskey's, yes, I was conducting an experiment all in the name of science. You have to do what you have to do!
Then the concert started, Wow, that woman is amazing! At 62, she still has the voice and she looked great, no washed up, has been singer here, in fact I think she sang better and smoother then her early days! It was a wonderful concert!! The crowd loved it! Charlie actually wanted to see this one, he loves the bluesy women, Winona, Melissa, Bonnie.
I am so glad I have friends that love all kinds of music, I get to see it all, from musicals to lounge acts to big stars!! Here is one of her songs that really showcases the type of singer she is:
Enjoy!

Can't wait to see your kitchen remodel! Love the aqua and white colors! So refreshing and clean. You are lucky to have a hubby who can help out too.
