Vegas ... and other Monday Musings!

This Monday Rocks!  My bags are packed and I am traveling today with my good friend and Interior Designer Linda Holt.  We are off to Las Vegas to attend Design Camp! Which also means I will be going to the Las Vegas Furniture Market ... follow me on IG and Twitter to be one of the first to know what's new!

In the meantime, I have a little progress to share at #ProjectDownSize.
We have been contemplating what to do with the fireplace holes in our brick wall ...

There was a big push to put in a gas fireplace.
Ultimately, I could't justify the cost of the insert, running the propane line, etc. etc.

It is now People and Pet Friendly ...
  Wine Bar and Dog Bar ... all in one!

Last week I was jamming with clients so that I could leave town and I had to miss a wonderful opportunity to lunch with fellow NorthEast bloggers.

They sent me these ... how cute is THAT!!

My luggage tag is being put to good use today, Thank you Sandy!

You should go check out my sweet New Friends ... 

And the treat bag from Jeanne ... she couldn't make it (she is in Seattle!) either. But she sent treats any way ... yeah, I am officially a slacker!

Thank you so much Ladies!  Looking forward to meeting you all soon!

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.
