I've been busy, busy, busy, cooking up a storm, flirting with the idea of writing a book, and prepping to go to Las Vegas this week for my baby sister's Big 5-Oh! I'm sort of a Nevada Girl at heart, having spent 13 or so years there in the Reno/Tahoe area. I worked at Harrah's Tahoe for most of that time... as a cocktail waitress... had two babies in Carson City, and eventually met Rick in Minden. Nevada was good to me. It's always fun to go back to that oddly electrified state, even though I'm a little intimidated by Vegas. At least I won't have to drive in that crazy place! I think I'll leave my computer at home, and just enjoy the freedom of traveling light, and being out of touch for a few days. I'm taking everything from the Alchemy Shop with me, in case anyone is short of proper Vegas Bling, but there's still my Etsy Shop for your retail therapy pleasure. See you next week, with a full report on my Vegan Adventures in Las Vegas!
