I didn’t take nearly the number of photographs I thought I’d take. I’ve arrived at this place in my life, where when I go on vacation, I go on VACATION! I didn’t pack my big camera, and I didn’t whip out the iPhone nearly as much as I thought I would. I had great fun!
I purchased my first pair of Old Gringo Boots, my first Olive and Pique cap (I seriously have to get out more), and a couple pairs of boot socks – you know the kind with the lace that stick out the top? The Cowboy and I did a little Christmas Shopping before his work conference started, and I’m down to just a few people left to shop for!
On the way to the airport, we ran into a South Dakota Traffic Jam:
While in the Minneapolis Airport, I left my iPad in the women’s restroom. I realized it as we nearly got to our gate. It wasn’t there by the time I rushed back, of course. Texting between the Cowboy and me, he suggested I call lost and found and leave a message. So I picked up a courtesy phone and left a message. I’m walking back to the gate where we are to board in about 20 minutes (and I’ve not yet got an assigned seat, mind you, but do have a Bloody Mary awaiting me – courtesy of Zach), when the PA system calls to a passenger who lost an iPad to report to the Express Spa (I thought they said spot). I flagged down one of the guys driving a golf cart and asked him to take me. We ended up at security, where the older gentlemen working the counter said it was the Express Spa, and showed us where to go. I dive off the cart, I’m like, “do you have the iPad?” and they’re like, “yeah, what’s it look like?”
I describe it and they pull it out of the drawer… Hallelujah! They said an older couple had turned it in for me! The world is still a good place!
The next day, as we head out to go to the Cowboy Christmas, I realize I don’t know where my iPhone is. Seriously. You cannot trust me with technology this trip, I guess. It was in the room, on the coffee table, thankfully!
Here’s my cute new cap:
As per usual for Vegas, I ate food that I don’t usually get/make myself at home. This ceviche was no exception. Sooooo Good!
I bought a lot of great new earrings:
There are so many earrings, it’s really going to need to be its own post.
Of course, we always stay at the Flamingo- it’s cliche, but there really are flamingos, at The Flamingo!
And there are pelicans too!
There are more photos, and more goodies to share, but it’s supposed to be absolutely gorgeous outside today so I want to spend my day enjoying 50 degrees!
