First off - thanks to all who left me wonderful comments while I abandoned you all! :) Please check back today if you had a question waiting for an answer, I will get to them all today.

I had a great time in Las Vegas. For those who don't know, I went to Vegas to help my mom get packed and then drive the moving truck back here to Oklahoma. It's about time she moved back here too, I say!

Me and my mom spent one day nail polish shopping, lol. I hit up a few Dollar Trees (no luck at any) and they have a store called The 99 cent Store, and I had no luck with any good nail polish at those either. I did go to a flea market and an outlet mall and snapped up lots of nail polish there. We were only able to find one beauty supply store and I got a few from there too.

And of course I had to go eat at the Flamingo Casino's buffet. It has mounds of crab legs and I gobbled up my fair share! :) It was really a pretty quick trip, and the drive back was going to take us two days to drive back, so that didn't leave much time to do anything else.

All of the nail polish and future giveaway prizes I got.

My mom and my son driving in the moving truck after we picked up my son from his grandparents house on the way back into Oklahoma City.

My mom thought I should get a picture of my toes in the snow on the drive back. I think this was taken in New Mexico.

The Hoover Damn as we were headed out of Las Vegas on Saturday morning.

The crab legs at the Flamingo Casino.

The contents of a few packages I had waiting for me when I returned to work this morning!

Snow in NM?! Does it normally snow there? I should know this, but I don't!
That's a heaping, huge amount of crab legs!!
Looks like you got some great hauls while you were gone.
So glad that you're back! Hope you had fun! Now back to the grind :(

Brooke said...

RAI - Glad to be back! I might have missed you all - a little bit! I know the nail polish galore, most of them were only a buck each though.

KATIE - Thanks so much! I missed reading all of my fave blogs!! I have some catching up to do!

BROOKLYNSHOEBABE - Good luck on shutting down that buffet!! They just keep bringing those legs out!

VANESSA - Thank you so much. I wish I had more pics to share with you all.

LUCY - Thank you. I know, those are miles of crab legs huh!

NESSA - Snow in the mountains of NM. I believe we were close to Flagstaff NM when we stopped to snap this pic.

Hey! We missed you Brooke! We were starting to worry you'd been kidnapped by an Elvis impersonator or something ;)
Looks like an awesome haul, there :)

PaperedLove said...

Yay, that's good you had a good trip. Unfortunately, Abby, a friend of mine also went to Vegas but she didn't have the greatest time.

Those prizes look awesome, I hope your contest has a good turn out!

Brooke said...

NIXXy - Elvis tried to get me, but I wouldn't let him have me. Glad to be back, now I just need to catch up on all the good nail polish I missed while I was gone.

XOANNIE - Thank you. I'm sorry to hear that your friend didn't have a great time. Maybe her next trip will be better!

Faith said...

Whoaaa, what are those Essies (@ least, they look like Essie) in the last pic?!

Brooke said...

FAITH - Nope, I didn't get any Essies. These are mostly so no namer Dollar a bottle brands. I am going to do a little research on some and have it up in a future post.

Faith said...

Ohh, I read your new post ... I was lookin' @ the Times Square bottles. Verrry pretty. :)
