Leavin' On a Jet Plane

I admit it, I've been neglecting my blogs. I haven't had time to do anything but work lately, barely even sleep. I am proud to say that I can still put out a good work product at 4am. The storm has passed and soon I will be in one of my favorite places...Vegas!!! My ears are still not functioning properly so I'm hoping the plane ride is not too painful. My back problem has also gotten worse. Not only is there a bulging disc, but the disc is also torn. This makes sitting or standing for too long painful. I have to be really really careful with my back...I'm not even supposed to vacuum, but that means my house hasn't been vacuumed. All my new shoes are feeling abandoned as well and the only flat shoes I have are keds and flip flops so I have not been wearing my new clothes either.

Hopefully I'll win the mega millions jack pot and then I'll have a lot more time to blog.

More Vegas Dresses...and Shoes

Retailers should be happy whenever I travel since I seem to think I need new clothes and shoes for each trip.  Here are some more Vegas dresses I've bought.  Some will need to be returned, but I have decided which yet.  I ordered the grey/silver one below in black, but it is back ordered.  I already have a black sequin skirt so it might be redundant. 

I usually wear all black in Vegas, or jeans and a black shirt.  I'm trying to expand my wardrobe horizons a bit and wear some color...or at least not all black.

This dress is so not something I would normally wear, but thought I'd try it out and I happen to LOVE it!  It's actually very flattering on me, I think.  My chest doesn't stick out like the model's though.

I don't think black or silver shoes would look good with this so I'm thinking maybe these pink shoes.

Or maybe one of these red pairs, although the second pair poses a challenge given the height and platform.

I love red so I also got this red dress that is the same style as the silver/grey dress and the black one on order.  I'll only keep one so it will be hard to decide.

OK, so I did get another black dress.  This hasn't arrived yet so I don't know if it looks good on me or not yet.

I also got this black ruffle skirt, but don't have a top to go with it.

And...I don't have a picture of it, but another dress that is ruffles like the skirt above, but in a white tank dress.  I don't know if it's fancy enough looking for night, but I'll bring it anyway since since it only cost $19 and I already cut the tags off.

So what do you think?  What should I wear???

Almost Fabulous

I saw this dress and fell in love with it to wear in Vegas.  It was back ordered, so I waited and waited for it to arrive.  It finally came on Friday!  But then I opened the bag, and it's not quite as pictured.  The top is grey...I thought it would be white.  I can't decide if I like it enough yet or not.  It would be so cute with a white top.  I guess it does look grey in this picture, now that I look at it, but it much more grey in person.

On the Road Again

The next three months are going to be really busy, but fun.  Here's what I have going on.
  1. Busy busy at work
  2. Vegas with friends
  3. The Friday after I get back from Vegas, my dad arrives to visit for a few days
  4. Chris and I are going to Savannah, Bluffton, and Charleston from the Saturday before T-Day to T-Day morning
  5. Chris' parents arrive the night before T-Day to spend T-Day thru that Sunday with us
  6. The Friday after that I'm going to NY to do all things Christmas...Rockefeller Center tree, ice skating, Rockettes and looking at the Macy's windows
  7. California for Christmas
Phew, that's it for now!

Minky Update

Minky is very much enjoying the cooler fall weather and stays out much later than I'd like him to.  He hasn't brought home anymore critters yet, which I'm happy about.  I'm not sure if he hasn't caught anything else or if he's taking his winnings somewhere else since Chris takes them away when he brings them in the house.  For all I know, there is a pile of chipmunks under the deck.  I always knew Minky was a hunter, but now he's defending his territory as well.  I saw him go after another cat in our yard tonight.  He came back just fine though and got a drink, then back outside to continue his work.

It's That Time of the Year

Budget time. Which means I'm crazy busy at work and things in my personal life tend to go crazy at the same time. I'm going to be slammed at work all the way leading up to my next Vegas trip in about a week and a half. I'm not really sure how all the work is going to get done, but it always does.  I can't wait to get on that plane...

Fall Has...Fallen?

I like the saying "spring has sprung", but what does fall do?  Whatever it does, it did it.  Fall has arrived.  The cool air actually feels good.  Now it's raining and I'm enjoying the sound of it.  Soon the leaves will be falling and it will be dark before coming home from work.  It's time to wear sweaters and boots and jacket, and put away the shorts, tank tops and bug spray.
