Recent Happenings

Holy cow it has been forever since I last posted!  March to be exact and a whole bunch as happened since then!   For starters we sold our beloved "happy house" as the kids named it.  It was with mixed emotions but Tice and I both decided we needed more room so on the market it went.  We ended up selling in about 2 weeks for cash!  With no other house lined up in that short timeline so we headed to our friends house to stay there while they were in Australia.  After three weeks there we headed to my mother in law's to stay for about 4 weeks.  Once June hit we decided we needed something a little more permenent so we rented a townhome for the last two months.  Finally as luck would have it we found our dream home and moved in about two weeks ago!  It has been whirlwind but totally worth it in the end.  Tice kept telling me to be patient and that it would pay off and he was right!  

Almost all of the rooms are unpacked but my to do list is still a mile long.  In the last week I have begun the LONG task of painting the house and boy will it take a while with over 5000 square feet and some very tall ceilings.  No matter how long it takes though it will be so fun to see the house change for the better!

Can't wait to share even more updates shortly with you all and thanks for coming back to this little corner of mine on the internet!

Recent Happenings...Vegas

A couple of weekends ago we headed to our favorite adult playground for a long weekend of fun.  We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and then headed to the Forum shops before getting ready for dinner at Sushi Roku.  The meal was good but I preferred Nobu over it.

The next day the weather was warm enough to enjoy shopping at the North Outlets and then Tice and I headed to the pool.  After a couple of cocktails it was time to get ready for dinner.

Since it was National Meatball Day while we were there we headed to Rao's to devour their famous and delicious meatballs for our second dinner that weekend.

On Saturday I went shopping at Fashion Show Mall while Tice golfed with a friend in from out of town.  After shopping I met up with our friends and their friends from out of town for lunch at the Wynn.  The chicken finger appetizer was DELICIOUS and the endless bellinis were nice as well!

Finally for our final dinner we went to the Old Homestead Steakhouse inside Caesar's for our last dinner before heading over to the Wynn to see David Guetta at XS.  We got there early enough that we were in the third row!  He put on an amazing show-  I just love that venue and can't wait to go to more shows over time there.

All in all a wonderful little getaway!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Recent Happenings...Laguna Beach

A couple of weeks ago Tice had a work conference at the Montage Laguna Beach so we hoped on a plane and enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in sunny California.  Even though the weather wasn't the warmest while we were there it was sunny and I still sat by my favorite pool in the world!  

Starting the weekend with a fun Frose

On Saturday after the conference was over we had a full day to explore Laguna and ended up at The Deck and had the most amazing lunch!  I would highly recommend it to anyone!
My grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich.  I will be dreaming of it for some time to come
For dinner we headed to Newport Beach and enjoyed dinner at Fig and Olive.  They have some of the most creative toasts and my pasta was very good!

One last look before we headed home!
