Home and exhausted


We're back from Vegas and as expected, had a wonderful time!  The whole trip was a roller coaster of emotions though and we're glad to be back with the kids.  Hmmm...I guess the best thing to do is a recap day by day. 

Sunday....Flew in and checked into our hotel (Palms Hotel and Casino).  A bit off the main strip and a young Hollywood hotspot which was both good and bad but always captivating...people watching was incredible and saw quite a few quasi-famous people...if you consider reality TV people to be famous that is.  Mini-me was an interesting sight...surreal sight, I suppose.  Actually just watching the scene was a reality show in itself. 

Monday....checked out the strip and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum....this was a lot of fun!  You could touch and really check out the celebrities...some were more realistic than others.  Spooky haunted house was part of the whole package too with all the famous horror dudes.  We did lots of shopping or I should say browsing.  I got on a mission to find a purse and Aaron on a mission to find new jeans...both of us successful.  We headed to Freemont Street Experience when it got dark.  It was St. Patrick's Day.  That equals craziness in the seedy (more seedy?) part of Vegas! 

Tuesday...Hung around the Palms and the Rio Hotel and Casino which was across the street.  Had our one meal of the day at the longest buffet we have ever seen...300+ options...Carnival World Buffet...we highly recommend it...surprisingly tasty food for a buffet.  Relaxed by the pool a bit...though we were overdressed for the scene. :-)  The evening was the big concert of course!  Mute Math, Alanis Morrisette and oh yeah, Matchbox Twenty.  The show was incredible though we could do without General Admission seating again.  Lots of fighting and pushing...we lived through it though and still had a great time. 

Wednesday....Flew home on 2 hours sleep.  Awww a great time...time to get some sleep!

Click for photos from our trip!  I only used my iPhone to take photos at the show...i wanted to focus on the show rather than take pics the whole time.  I have a bunch of great photos from the people all around me though that had much better cameras, plus some video we took that I'll put together into a slideshow later.  It's 12:30am and I'm Exhausted....time for BED!

Blog Mojo

I seem to have lost it!  It's been a crazy busy last few weeks, just not a lot that's been blog-worthy I guess.  I haven't taken too many photos either, well unless you count photos of jewelry.  I have amassed quite a few photos on my phone though....I guess the photos on there can sum up my last few weeks...

I guess the most shocking news of the past couple weeks (yeah right!) is I'm blonde again....

And a couple days left before we leave for Sin City...


Last week we went up skiing with our friend Fred...only his second time on skis...he's hooked and we're happy about that!  I took tons of video but for some reason it all looks like ancient footage from the 70's or something.  Here's a few highlights....

Etsy on Martha


I have had an incredibly overwhelming experience to opening my Juella Designs shop on Etsy just over a month ago.  I am so thankful, though it's kept me very busy!  A big thank you to my Matchbox Twenty fan friends who have been a huge support.  I was not fully aware of how big of an impact Etsy as a site is out there in the cyberworld.  I have had so much contact from people all over the world and it's incredible!  In fact I can now say my jewelry is international.  Yesterday Martha Stewart did a feature story on Etsy though I missed it, fortunately another 'Etsian' recorded it and posted to her site.  I found it interesting and thought I'd share it here.....Etsy on Martha
