Viva Las Vegas

Once in a while, life gets in the way of blogging. This month I have been crazy with the end of my second semester of graduate school as well as visits with both my parents, my in-laws, volunteering, and a vacation.

First things first. M and I returned from our vacation on Monday night. When going through the mail I came across a postcard sent from one of my lovely followers Liz, who won the book giveaway. She thanked me for the book and for brightening her day. I'm happy to make you happy, Liz! 

 With that, I'd like to share some pictures from our Vegas vacation. We had a grand time staying at the Monte Carlo, taking a day trip to the Grand Canyon via the Hoover Dam, dining at a variety of delicious restaurants, partying it up VIP style on Saturday night, and seeing David Copperfield who made M and 12 others disappear!

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas!

All in all it was a great trip! Seeing the Grand Canyon was definitely one of the highlights as I've been wanting to see it for ages. Sitting by the pool and relaxing was also much needed. Mostly, I was just happy to spend some time with my husband away from our daily routine.

Have you ever been to Vegas or the Grand Canyon?

Book Giveaway Results

Ladies and gents the results are in! 

The Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Book Giveaway had exactly one entrant! Liz Singer is the only person who followed the blog, tweeted, and commented on the original post, so she wins the book! Not bad odds there, Liz. Please email or message me with your mailing address so I can send the book to you.

Would you like me to continue with giveaways? Maybe not a book next time...
