One More Post

Can't believe tomorrow is March 1st! Before the new month starts, I want to squeeze in one more post. It's not a stitchy post though; have not had time for any stitching this week.

I just got home from a quick trip to Las Vegas. I was there for work, to attend an awards banquet on behalf of my employer. It was nice to get away for two days in a warmer climate.

My co-worker and I stayed at the Paris Hotel on Thursday night. This is one of my favorite hotels in Las Vegas.

We decided to take a ride on the High Roller. It's a 30-minute ride on the world's largest observation wheel that provides some awesome views of Las Vegas. Up to forty people can ride in a pod; there were only ten of us on Thursday night.

Beautiful views!

When we got back to the hotel, my friend wanted to play a couple slot machines. I'm not much of a gambler, but I played along and put two bucks in a machine. This is what I won:

Needless to say, I cashed out. I can use this money to buy some Nashville stash!

Many of the hotels were decorated for the Chinese New Year. This photo was from the Venetian Hotel.

It was fun to see the gondolas...

On Friday we switched hotels. Our event Friday night was at The Bellagio Hotel. Great views from the walkway to the Bellagio Hotel.

More Chinese New Year decorations too!

All good things must come to an end. I'm back home trying to get laundry and housework done so that I will have some stitching time tomorrow!

Happy Stitching!

Haven't visited your blog in a VERY long time, and it's fun to catch up on your stitching endeavors! My favorite posts, though, are the ones where you highlight work, travel, and/or family! XOXO
