Instant Karma!

Hey, I need a little boost in my life right now...hmmm, how to get that?
Music...sweet music....
Work is very slow and I am getting worried, I know we have these moments, but they are scary when you are self to help me out I like to listen to certain songs, I can't let it get me down, depression can take over your life and eat you alive.
So sing along and say a little prayer that work picks up...

Let's Go D-Backs!

Charlie and I snuck off for a weekend retreat to Phoenix. I basically have to kidnap him to get him away from work. So we flew out friday afternoon, our plane had a problem so we had to unboard and get a new one but we finally made it to phoenix an hour before game time. We checked into our hotel and walked over to Chase Field and enjoyed the game Friday night, then walked back to the hotel and crashed for the night!

Saturday morning we got up, and yes, charlie brought some work so he got that finished up and we headed out to walk to the mall and see a movie, Iron Man 2, good movie, I liked Iron man 1 the best. Then we walked to the baseball field and ate lunch at Fridays, the restaurnat is in the ball park and you can sit at tables and look out over the field, that is real neat, you can even book a table and sit there for the whole game! But we headed to our seats and watched the d-backs win over the marlins.

Sunday we were up and headed home, our little vacation was over, it was a fun time and glad I could get Charlie away from it all and make him relax!

My Worker Bee!

The view from our room, we can see the field!

Wore my cuff I made and handed out some business cards!

Eating at Friday's, overlooking the field!

I think he is having fun now!

The BlueBird's Nest

I finally made a Rivioli pendant! It only took 4 classes but I got it accomplished! I did make one the first class I ever took but it was not perfect, but the friend I gave it too loved it so she got it for a gift, it was pink and crystal in color.
This one I chose blues, I love it, and since they remind me of bird nests, I added a bird and hung it on chain. I will have fun wearing this!
I may attempt to make more!! Uh, I will have to see how much patience is left in my brian!

Girls night out!

We have not been having girls night out on wednesday due to the Hilton not booking any concerts, but we are keeping an eye out for any other fun stuff to do.
Last wednesday, Tanya and I went to dinner and a movie, we saw "Get Him to the Greek".
No one was up for joining us, we had a nice time anyway, and it was a fun no brainer movie.
And it was music oriented so I guess that fit in with our music themed wednesday's! I call those movies Fluff! So it was a nice fluffy wednesday!
Hope to do something more exciting next wednesday, stay tuned!
Las Vegas is in full summer swing, triple digit days, 103* today! I am in heaven! Enjoying the pool and the warm air!
Have a wonderful tomorrow!

Keeping cool by the pool!

Hey, summer is here and I have been spending lots of time in the pool!
I also have been finding time to go buy some summer clothes!

Oh I also saw this great display at Dillards in the lucky brand purse section, wow how cool is that! I want that guitar!!

Ok everyone have a safe and Happy Fourth of July!! I will be back after the weekend to thrill you with more exciting life here in Las vegas!
