Friday Snip - It's and a Confession ...


I have such wonderful blog friends and I love to read, comment and totally consume the images that everyone puts up.  And as much ADD that I have ... I also can get sucked in and go into a complete Singularly Focused Vortex.
Tunnel Vision Mode.  
I was there ... since Thanksgiving.  
Totally focusing on the Holidays and our Move.  
I became paralyzed in thought.

So this Friday's Snip - It's represents a re-birth of sorts!  I stopped blogging (and reading them) ... for two weeks.  I found that I needed a visual stimulation break and to let my own mind create and do what it does on it's own.  
I had been completely over-stimulated.  
Like a kid in a candy store.

If you follow me on IG (okay, I didn't go cold turkey!) you know that we snuck away for what was supposed to be a business trip for Don and I got to tag along. 
Then the snow storm happened and no one else could make the trip.  We happened into a four day getaway ... 
It was a God Gift to the two of us.



1.  Never liked to admit my middle name was Sue. 
Then I met Dirty Sue Olive Juice.  
Yep, I've made peace with it.
2.  You know I love a good cowboy boot.  
None made the trip home.
3.  Dining on Sushi at YellowTail in the Bellagio.  
Have to tell you the sushi was good. 
The floors were fabulous! 
4.  Petroglyphs at Atlatl Rock in The Valley of Fire. 
Looks to me like they were channeling a good martini as well!
5.  These Yoga Pants.  I stalked a woman in the Las Vegas Airport. She told me where to get them.
I might start doing Yoga.
6.  The Moscow Mule in a Copper Mug.  
Refreshing ... an Adult Icee!
7.  The Toilet at Aria Resort.  
Unlike any experience I've ever known.
8.  Most Beautiful Shrimp Cocktail ... EVER. 
Todd English Pub.
9.  Nice to wear Disco Flip Flops for a few days!

Being away from my computer reminded me that there is a Big Colorful World out there. 
I stopped and soaked it up.

4.  Shiny Christmas Clusters.
5.  Bedroom Sconces ready to be installed.
6.  "MeanSticks" because the first time I saw these I thought they were meant to keep people out. Had no idea they were to help the plows!

8.  Rearranging the house to accommodate lights.
9.  They boys were allowed back on the sofa.  I'm a pushover.

Happy Weekend!

Packing boxes to move.
