slice of life

So I had to hit the ground running as soon as we got home from Vegas. I had a class today (Sunday) that still needed some prep work. Been a mighty busy girl, so this is the first chance I've had to post.

Speaking of girls, here's a pic of a girl we saw at the M&M shop in Vegas. She had the coolest 'do. I thought maybe she'd been a model at a hair show, but no she told me she just likes to have her her done up at the salon. I love the slices in this coif. (Yes, I asked if it was okay to take this pic.)

We had much too much fun in the M&M store and bought too much chocolate (esp considering the heat --I had to pre-plan stuff so that my candy was always in a safe cool spot).

We were at MGM, which I love. We've stayed there a few times before and so it's very comfortable. We *love* the lazy river that you can float on all day long (just wish there were a couple less waterfalls!) I also like that there's a movie theatre within walking distance. We took the kids to see Ratatouille (sp?) Cute movie.

Here kitty, kitty! This was the first time we really had a great moment at the Lion Habitat, too. There were two cubs and they were adorable. So playful and fun to watch. They were right in front of us a good deal of the time. Just wonderful!

Now this picture just makes me smile. This little ogre family is so cute. Last Monday night, I was blog surfing and at Susan's blog I saw the pic of her son's Shrek collection. The very next day we saw these guys at Build-A-Bear so I snapped a pic. The funny thing is she took her little guys to a Build-a-Bear store that same day so they could buy baby Shreks.

I also did a bit of scrapbooking and finally had a chance to play around with a clear album. So fun, but a bit tricky since the pages are .... well, CLEAR. You do have to pre-plan somewhat and since I was in lazy, vacation mood with poor lighting and limited supplies my book is a bit on the sloppy side. But I still had a blast making it and can't wait to try another. (You can see more pics from this album at my other blog.)

Well, that's just some of our pics. In case you can't tell, we had a good time!

Wow, that hair is so cool! I don't know how people can do that, I can't get mine to do anything let alone slices!

Sounds like you're having a blast!
