Roses, Vegas, and Life

 My roses are in full bloom. These are my favorite so far this year. The colors are so vibrant and the 2 that I cut are making my kitchen smell divine.
 Last weekend Headless Dad and I were here. At the top of the Rio having dinner with friends at the VooDoo Steakhouse. The food was great, (I had the best sea bass I've ever tasted,) the company better, and this view? Out of this world. The Voodoo is also the rooftop nightclub with amazing views of the strip as well as the mountains. See the railing? Yeah, there was no way I was getting any closer. The wind was howling that night- knocking over empty glassware that was left behind!
 Sunday afternoon we decided to relax by the pool with boat drinks. Frozen Pina Colada for me!
 If you ever need a place to eat in Vegas you must try Bacio's in the Tropicana. It was beyond spectacular.  Above is my dinner: veal scallopini with artichokes and proscuitto. Headless Dad loved his dinner too. And our apps and salads and the bread and the dessert...... I would go back to Vegas just to go back to this restaurant. No lie.
Aaaaahhhhh yes. Back to reality. This is only part of the ironing that I did today. I also did 5 loads of laundry and cleaned my kitchen.

Where is my cocktail waitress? Where is the valet?

So glad you had a nice time in Vegas. The rose is gorgeous and way to go on the ironing. When you find the valet and waitress send them my way!
