How I spent my day

Unfortunately I have to work on Saturday so I was able to take today off. When I went to bed last night I was thinking off all the things I could do with an entire day to myself. Yeah, I know, how pathetic is my life? It wasn't until this morning that I decided to go to the Bellagio and take pictures in the conservatory. I love to go early in the day to miss the hoards of people, err, to catch the sunlight coming through the windows. I got lucky on both sides today. :)

The flowers were spectacular. And for the first time in forever, I didn't have ONE person ask me to take their picture. Hmm, perhaps I should go to the Bellagio dressed like a bag lady more often. Pink Crocs, pink jacket = whack-o woman
So here are just a few of the photos I took this morning. And after I left the Bellagio, I went to the Cupcakery to satisfy my hunger for a vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting. Bad idea. I would have been better off pulling over to the side of the road out in the middle of the desert and eating a handful of sand. Yeah, it was that dry. I can't believe that they get $2.50 a piece for them. Sheesh, it really was drier than a popcorn fart. Oh well, that's what I get for buying cupcakes instead of making my own. Last time I go there, that's for sure.
After almost choking to death on a dry cupcake that was way over priced, I ended up going to Trader Joe's for some groceries and then home. That's pretty much been my day and I have loved every minute of it...except for the horrible cupcake. Don't go to The Cupcakery if you ever come to Vegas. They suck. I've never been impressed with them. They got me today at a weak moment and I can tell you one thing...never again.
Enough about the stupid cupcake...geez. See, I have no life. The house is quiet right now. Scott has gone to play basketball...Betina is at a yoga class...Kris fell asleep in his room...and the dogs are all snuggled together snoozing on the couch. It's nice. The quiet that is. Maybe I'll take advantage of having the house all to myself and make some decent cupcakes. (I can never let things go)
