What I don't love...not knowing if I will be able to leave for my vacation.
WINTER BLAST 2012
As you have heard, read, seen from national news, we had quite the Winter Blast this last week. It happened on the morning we were leaving for a 4-day trip for my husbands annual company meeting. GREAT! Seriously I have never seen it as bad as it was. I even doubted what the weather man was saying because they can make things bigger than life and we see nothing. But they were right, this time. At midnight....there was no snow and by 2am the snow had fallen and was at least 4 inches thick and still coming down. The problem we had was for a 7:30 am flight...you have to get to the airport so early and they don't clear the roads until at least 5 or 6am! Our friend was going to drive us but with the unpredictably of the weather and the early hours, we sucked it up and payed for parking!
|Headed out from our house!|
|This would be I-5 Northbound! |
Right before that car up ahead.. did a 360 in front of us...NICE!
|Who's excited to be up at 3:30 am so we can get to the airport? We are ...clearly! I did get to enjoy a wonderful black/white mocha from Dilettante! If you have never had one...you have to try anything they have. |
Coffee, ice cream! It's the BEST!
|Never seen anything like this before!|
|And hours later...we are in sunny weather!|
|Later that night...Gelato please!|
|Do you know where we are? You guessed it...Hoover Dam! |
Of course I spent the entire visit and remainder of the day sharing Dam jokes...I make my self laugh.
|Arizona and Nevada|
|Yah, I'm a sweet photographer! Well I think so! haha...|
|My friend Molly. Our husbands work together and they were busy the entire time so we got to hang out!|
|This just seemed funny? Not a sign you see everyday...if ever!|
|Sums up our day!|
|Beautiful sunset while enjoying a YUMMY coffee at The Coffee Bean! Kind of ticked because I had the best CARAMEL LATTE there, so GOOD! But we don't have one in Washington! |
So sad, but probably better for my waste line!
|Finally a night to hang with my HUBBY!|
|My husband works with some fun people! Had a great time with them!|
|Trump Tower! Sweet Hotel and SWEET View! Had no idea how nice it wold be. Our friends stayed another night so we |
|Max made us a little surprise! So sweet to come home too! I love homemade gifts!|
Like I said...I love vacation, but Vegas in not my desired destination. I know a lot of people love it, but for me...not my scene. I love hanging out by the pool and enjoying warm weather, but January is not warm and the pools are closed, so relaxing by the pool didn't happen. Vegas is cheap to fly and book a hotel, but it stops there. The food and anything extra is so expensive. Plus I don't gamble and party until the early hours...yah maybe I'm getting old, but I LOVE my sleep. The vacation was great for relaxing, sleeping-in, meeting the BEST CARAMEL LATTE EVER, taking baths in a big tub, reading and hanging with friends. I also fit in a few workouts, but I couldn't use the locker room unless I wanted to pay $18...really? You can use the gym as part of your stay...but the locker room was additional! The spa lady acted shocked, when I acted shocked! Maybe I'm weird for thinking that was crazy?
With all that said...
Little getaways are great no matter where you go, so great for couples. I love reconnecting and having time together...there is nothing better! We had a great time and made some fun memories!
Where do you like to vacation?
Do you like to stay BUSY on vacation or just RELAX?
