A Quick Trip

Yes, another Vegas trip. Say what you will, it's an hour flight from New Mexico and a world away. This time it was a quick visit, only a little over 24 hours. DH is a fan of Chelsea Handler, and several weeks ago he discovered that she would be at Caesar's Palace on Labor Day weekend, so he put together a little junket to Sin City for us. We flew out via Southwest on Saturday afternoon and returned on Sunday.

The venue was the same one as Cher's, so I got iPhone pics of some of her costumes. How fab are these? Say what you will about Cher as a performer, her costumes are absolutely beautiful:

I hope I can persuade DH that Cher should be the reason for a future Vegas trip. I bet her show would be a lot of fun. We do have another trip coming up later this month, but that one's for DH's Army reunion.

I'm glad we got away for a little while at least. Otherwise, there's too much of a temptation to veg out and do nothing on a long weekend in Albuquerque. We went to the Mirage's pool, had a nice meal, saw a show, had a room service breakfast. What's not to love?

Now that we're back in New Mexico, domestic tasks. Other plans for Labor Day weekend include a trip to Home Depot to look at washer/dryers. DH really wants front loaders...hopefully they're available in red!!

That's very cool, Nancy! How great to have a change of scene, occasionally. I love those Cher costumes. Thanks for sharing.

Trust me, HD has the LG steam washer and dryer in red. How do I know? I visit them every time I'm there!

Thank you for sharing Cher's costumes, they are fabulous! I remember begging my parents to let me stay up to watch Sonny & Cher. Even then, her Bob Mackie costumes were amazing.

How is Smudge doing?

Hi Gigi, we ended up buying LGs in Graphite! They arrive next Sunday.

Smudge is recovering nicely. We removed the e-collar Sunday and he behaved so well that we decided to just leave it off. He'll be visiting the vet this week for a (hopefully) final check.

What a nice mini-vaca! I LOVE Cher. And her costumes! To me, regardless of how skimpy and transparent her outfits are, she doesn't look slutty. She's just Cher.

Glad kitty is improving. We've had those LG washer/dryer for 3 years now. Like them a lot. I've experimented with "steam cycling" dry clean only fabric, then putting in the dryer for a bit. Not sure yet if I achieve maximum shrinkage, but sure beats the dry cleaner$. Also has saved hundreds of dollars in laudering king sized coverlet. $50 every time a feline barfs on it. Looks much better than when it was professionally cleaned. Extended it's life by...who knows. My LGs are dull, dull white. :-)
